This review is from: Logitech M570 910-001799 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Trackball
Pros: Long battery life
2 extra programmable buttons
Great when limited to small desk space or sitting on the couch
Cons: took some effort to get the software working with certain game titles (very few)
Ball suspension nubs wear down and collect Gunk still (long standing issue with this style of mouse)
Other Thoughts: using this mouse over your traditional drag around the desk mouse i've noticed for First person shooter titles and various other Game titles that take place from a first person perspective you can get a lot more control and accuracy out of this mouse. if you ever almost knocked a drink over trying to look right or left and your mouse moving was the culprit, get used to using one of these. to compare it, its the closest you can get between a gamepad and a mouse.
its design is easier on the arms and wrists as well, the extra buttons are easy to reach and can be programmed for multiple uses or left as M4 and M5.
having the unifyer wasn't a huge plus at first but i'm about to buy a extra keyboard that will use it. never had a range problem as my wired keyboard i use has a USB port extender so the unifyer sits right below my mouse at all times. it also lets you know when your battery is at critical levels and as it only needs 1 AA, a pack of 4 will last almost a year. rechargeables help here too.
all in all if you used trackball before i see no new ones being made, my only sadness is that a Gamer model one like a Razor brand Trackball doesn't exist thats decent enough.
Pros: spec for spec identical to the ASUS ROG Swift.
functions well for many of the games i've played or plan to play (mechwarrior online, StarCitizen, Fallout, etc)
Gsync easy to enable (it was actually on when i hooked it up in nVidias control panel, perhaps an auto-detect?)
Cons: shipped box as is, not the sturdiest box in the world guys, i know i asked for it quickly but cmon, i cut 2 spots and pulled a tab and it fell apart.
1, possibly 2 dead pixels near top of the screen
Other Thoughts: so for the same price i could have ordered a monitor of this caliber as an ISP panel, from somewhere in asia for about the same price or less, why'd i buy this then? simple i wanted a monitor asap, from a company that should hold itself to a higher standard than an overseas brand, and for the price we pay, i would think 0 deadpixels would be our standard but i guess not, not salty about it just hoped. i bought this after waiting to be put on back order for the ASUS ROG Swift. the day i was put on my purchase was voided my card charged to newegg then refunded 3-5 days later, rather than, just not billed at all. then heres the kicker after that the price on the monitor went up so if i wanted it i'd be paying 150$ more than i originally was, with shipping.
i bought this as a big FU to the people who will suck up to ASUS and order 3 or so of their awful monitor because its got their "gamer brand" on it, it shouldnt need a special gamer brand its got GSYNC built into, this already makes it a gaming monitor its redundant to call it a special gaming monitor.
all in all this product was the right choice, decent price, got it next day on a saturday and setup within minutes of opening it. default brightness was a bit high for me personally but its stock settings otherwise are just right.
4/5, if i was a rich kid, i'd rather buy 3 of these than the over bloated ROG swift.
This review is from: ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: very expansive, with a lot you can do to customize your build.
Cons: is a larger board than most.
Other Thoughts: i saw this board a year ago and said this seems like a fairly decent board to build a gaming rig on, well i was definitely on the right track. its still performing well, stays relatively cool, and has a number of slots for adding your own sound card wireles cards and a decent number of spots for Fan connectors.READ FULL REVIEW
