Pros: This card is solid and well built. The double slot is nice for additional cooling/exhaust, and this card is silent, even under load. I also found it is very cool, only spiking to around 50 running BFBC2.
Cons: I was a little disappointed in performance of this card. I upgraded from a 9800 GT with 1gb of on board mem. I used to get about 20-40 FPS on medium settings playing WoW. Now its 25-40 on ultra, I was expecting better. It does however run D3, SC2, LoL, and BFBC2 on max settings with decent frame rates (40+). I guess wow is still a beast, and that's before the coming graphics upgrades they are going to release. I guess "you get what you pay for" really does apply here. Its a decent card for a budget build, but theres a reason its not a bleeding edge card.
Other Thoughts: The location of the 6 pin power connector is kinda awkward, and doesn't lend nicely to cable management. It would be much nicer to have it on the end of the card.
I also plan to overclock this card in addition to what was done by the factory.
This review is from: Logitech G600 MMO 910-002864 Black 20 Tilt Wheel USB Laser 8200 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: This mouse feels solid, it is rather heavy for not having a weight tray like my G500 did, but I like a heavy mouse. The braided cable is thick and seems like it will hold up. There are 12 programmable buttons for any of your favorite games, as well as a huge range of colors for those buttons. The mouse glides nicely, very little effort and it doesn't seem to collect any build up of gunk around the pads. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones as mine didn't need a firmware update.
Cons: Ok so.... Ill start from the top. First, when I got my mouse it was coming straight off the UPS truck, it didn't sit outside for a while. After I unpacked it and plugged it in I noticed that the right mouse button was sticking after you clicked it. I figured maybe It was related to the temperature (I live in NY) and after about 10 minutes it warmed up and the sticking seemed to stop. I'll keep an eye on this.... Second, after opening up WOW and taking working with the keybinds I found they made some very poor changes from past models. On my G500 the additional mouse keys were programed as "mouse button 4" or "5" etc. Now that is no longer the case, they don't have their own denotations. Now those 12 buttons HAVE to be bound to a key on your keyboard, or a mouse function, like left or right click.... how stupid is that? I could go on and on about how stupid this is but I wont... just be ready to fight with keybinds. Third, the bottom edge of the mouse is not rounded off, its a fairly sharp angle. So when I pick it up to moved it that edge scrapes on the mouse pad instead of sliding easily. That may just be me as I think I tilt the mouse ever so slightly when I move it, but something to be aware of. Lastly, the placement of that "G-Shift" button is super awkward and I find my middle finger finding its way there in place of the true right click button. So I bound both buttons to right click and just use the G-Shift button as the right click.
Other Thoughts: I got this mouse on sale, but now that I have it I would not be one to suggest getting this at full price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When I first bought this mouse, like most logitech gear, it was great. The quality felt good, the weight tray was nice, and the on the fly dpi settings are great.
Cons: Like most Logitech gear this wore out... more quickly then it should have. Two years after I got it, the mouse buttons are starting to wear out. I get double clicks when I only click once, and if I press and hold it to move, say a web browser from one screen to another, it looses connection and stops moving the window. Just like other Logitech gear, 2 sets of speakers I bought from them also wore out in just a year or 2. This is now the last Logitech product I will ever buy, and as an IT professional and gamer, I will persuade anyone else not to buy Logitech products.READ FULL REVIEW
