Newegg has the new versions now.

Logitech G600MMO Gaming Mouse - Black
Logitech G600MMO Gaming Mouse - Black

Pros: One of the best mice I have ever used. It has all the functionality I wanted, with the precision I needed. The colored buttons allowed me to fine tune the light to match my case lights almost exactly. And the buttons are all angled differently so you always know which one your pushing without looking or requiring muscle memory. The only minor problem I have with it is that the mouse itself can only handle 3 profiles programmed into it. (6 if you include the G-shift option) which slightly limiting compared to some other programmable Mice that I've seen. But you can switch the mouse to software mode and your profiles will switch automatically with whatever program your running. Of which you can have 3, each with a G-shift mode. So you really have like 6 per profile. The Logitech G programming software is really easy to use, and has all the functionality you will ever need. The only downside is that you still can't write scripts for the buttons like you can with some Thrustmaster joystick products. I use Autohotkey to overcome this limitation but it would still be nice to have. It feels good in my hand and I can reach all the buttons without shifting my hand.

Cons: Ok, so if you've done your homework on this mouse you will know that the first batch of these things were defective. they required a firmware update to fix but the firmware was not flash-able. Logitech would replace people's mice if they contacted there support and told them of the problems they had. The problem is the users had to pay shipping costs and often they would get the same old model back anyway because most support people didn't know of the issues... So basically Logitech was having the consumer pay to do their recall process rather than actually recall the product and pull it off the shelves. I saw the black ones were out of stock here on Newegg and ordered when they were available again. I can happily say the mouse I got is the new model which allows it to be re-flashed. But I didn't need too as it already had the latest firmware. So there are no issues out of the box. I tested this mouse and it does not have the issues the old one has. Basically if you right clicked really fast the mouse would jump to the top or one side of the screen. Some people reported the lights going out and then coming back on like the firmware in the mouse cashed and rebooted. Additionally, I seen some people complain about an ever so slight amount of mouse acceleration. As someone who used to play FPS's competitively I don't see it with this one. I even put the mouse between 2 heavy objects and moved between them at varying speeds and the cursor stopped at the same place when it hit the heavy objects so I don't think there is any acceleration anymore on these new models when you have it turned off.

Overall Review: The reason I got this mouse is because my old G5 mouse was slowly dieing on me. I got that mouse back in early 2005 or late 2004... Yeah the thing is nearly 10 years old and I use my computer heavily. I have nearly 200 games in my steam library alone and I don't have a TV because I watch movies and shows on my computer. I even have a blu-ray drive on my computer as well so when I rent movies I even watch those on my computer. I felt like I had to reward logitech for such a wonderful product by buying their top of the line gaming mouse once more. The problem is that all their gaming mice had issues... the g500s makes a high pitched sound for some reason, and these had firmware issues. But I can happily say these G600 mice no longer have any issues that I can see Mine works flawlessly. We will have to see if it holds up as long as my G5 mouse did. Something else I would like to add is that in the pictures and video here on newegg the mouse looks really massive and unwieldy. I can honestly say that when I hold this mouse next my old G5 this one is slightly smaller in All dimensions. (Length, Width and Height) The length is actually quite a bit less. On my g5 you could actually rest the base of your wrist on the mouse if you wanted, this one you cannot, it's too short for that. Additionally it is ever so slightly lighter in weight even without the weight cartridge in my G5. I did a lot of research and for the money you simply could not beat this mouse for what I personally needed... Hope that helps anyone looking for at this mouse but runs away screaming when they google the model number, lol.

Most Critical Review

The worst fan I've ever seen.

NZXT FN-200RB 200 mm Case cooler
NZXT FN-200RB 200 mm Case cooler

Pros: It looks like a decent case fan when turned off... At low speed the fan is pretty quiet.

Cons: First off, it's not 200mm, closer to 190mm. That's why it doesn't fit anything but NZXT stuff. So right there NZXT is ripping you off advertising 200mm. Secondly It wobbles something awful when in use. The barrings to put it bluntly... suck to begin with and this wobble effect no doubt makes them worse. I can see how numerous people complain of exploding fans. As the bearings wear down the wobble gets worse until the fan hits the housing causing shards of plastic to fly everywhere.

Overall Review: I will never buy anything from NZXT again. The fact I own a phantom case and thus am FORCED to buy such an unbelievably jacked up fan is just an outright insult. I will never buy anything NZXT again. Everything from them is obviously designed by their accountants who are mo doubt trying to scam you. NZXT, I don't what countries children you have making these fans for you. But I think you better at least hire an adult supervisor for them.
