This review is from: SIIG JK-US0512-S1 Black 87 Normal Keys USB Wired Mini Keyboard
Pros: Scissor keys, small profile, aesthetically pleasing, very well manufactured.
Cons: Some buttons are just too small i.e. backspace, right shift, Tab.
But what really kills me is the Fn and Ctrl key location on the left. I use the Ctrl key a thousand hundred million more often than I ever use the Fn key. On just about every other laptop keyboard (outside of my t410) the Ctrl key is in the outside and the Fn key is on the inside (as it should be).
Other Thoughts: All in all it's a great little keyboard. All the other keys beyond the few I've mentioned above are full size and excellent. I really hope they take this back to the drawing board and make it a full size laptop style keyboard (which would only be about an inch longer to be honest, but would make a huge difference). Also, please please please swap the Ctrl and Fn keys on the left.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Super high DPI (which I rarely ever use except in some RTS games), stores profiles on the mouse (great for jumping around from desktop to FPS to RTS, plus the DPI switched is a godsend if you've never used it), side buttons are great for hopping around the web and switching macros in games, option to free spinning mouse wheel (I never knew the internet could be this awesome, plus I write code all day so I can whip that sumbitch, check my line count and I'm wherever I need to be with a quickness), Multi grips (if you've got chick hands), weights to customize the feel and control (I use these a lot when switching in and out of different games actually).
Cons: Switching between profiles is a bit cumbersome because you have to hold a button underneath the mouse and then click the DPI adjustment button at the same time.
The wheel click is pretty stout. You've got to give it a good push to get it to activate. Although, I never use the wheel click so I'm actually glad it's hard to activate, less chance of me bumping it and scrolling ten thousand lines down by mistake.
Also I wish there were a more efficient way to swap out the weights that remove the grip, pop out the weight tray, try not to break it (it seems a bit flimsy, but I've not had any trouble so far), etc.
Other Thoughts: I typically use two different mice on my workstation, one for work and one for play. This mouse really has taken over as my one and only. Although not perfect, it truly handles all aspects of computing better than either mouse I was currently using.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PC Game
Pros: It's a very entertaining waste of time and probably still the best FPS out there at the moment (crysis2 and black ops included). Campaign is solid and multiplayer is fun, but I'll get to that below.
Cons: Multiplayer. While it is still very entertaining, it's a direct port from xbox (with minor tweaks like chat, graphic settings, mouse control). If you've played it on xbox then you've played it on PC (except lag and ping times on PC are actually worse). There are none of the perks that you would expect from playing it on PC i.e. dedicated servers, lean, console commands, etc.
Also, having to deal with Steam can be frustrating at times, but whateves.
Other Thoughts: It's still the best imo, unfortunately. . . until BF3 drops :)READ FULL REVIEW
