This review is from: Perixx MX-1000 Copper Programmable Gaming Mouse
Pros: Cool looking. Nice features. Price. Also, I have one of those laptops where the USB ports are adjacent to the audio ports. This leads to unwanted coupling between any connected hardware. Usually this results in some kind of noise being heard on my external speakers, but this mouse runs surprisingly clean. The only audible noise occurs when the red ambient LED is on; you can hear the PWM driver through the speaker. But I just leave it on the green light, so no problems there.
Cons: Not the most ergonomic, but I could tell that from the pictures.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Like the board layout. Had everything I needed at a great price.
Cons: I bought an OEM board, so I can't be sure who's at fault... But, there was a faulty capacitor in the DIMM power circuit which caused a short to the base of a switching transistor connected to one of the voltage regulators. The result was smoke as soon as the power was turned on. Probably just a bad component, and not any fault of ASUS (I give them 3eggs.) However, newegg claims that they test the functionality of all OEM parts before re-shipping. This is clearly not the case (they didn't even catch the bent pins on the CPU socket.) 1 egg for newegg.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for I guess... This'll probably be the last time I buy any OEM boards. Too much to fail, not worth the risk of the delays.READ FULL REVIEW
