Best Multi-Button Mouse Around

UtechSmart Venus RGB Gaming Mouse, Wired 16400 DPI High Precision Laser Programmable MMO Computer Gaming Mice
UtechSmart Venus RGB Gaming Mouse, Wired 16400 DPI High Precision Laser Programmable MMO Computer Gaming Mice

Pros: Purchased one of these on sale years ago, and didn't stop using it until the left-click died. At that point, I bought another. -The weights give the mouse just the right amount of heft, & they're adjustable to (hopefully) give you the perfect feel -The software is insanea! In a good way--every button is customizable, from single-key presses to full macros, to rapid-fire presses with input delay -Button layout; the side-button rows are set at opposing angles, and the #5 button is marked, so you can always quickly re-center & find your hand position mid-game without taking your eyes off your screen - be careful, though, because I'm dependent on that now. Excellent design choice -Size & shape; fits my long-fingered hand well, and the thumb-rest keeps you off the mousepad -Speed; the software lets you change response time, refresh rate, & there are 2 buttons just South of he scroll wheel that I leave dedicated to a 5-speed fully customizable DPI changer, speaking of: -Preset profiles; this isnwjere the mouse really shines, as ith has 5 fully customizable profiles. Apologies for the repetition, but it's seriously that good. EVERY setting is unique to the profile selected, which can be set to be changed with a hotkey, or done by the dedicated button on the underside of the mouse. -LED lighting; the mouse has a few LED zones, which I believe are best used here to discern what profile you are set to, & though limited gives another nice little touch of customizability -Extras; the mouse comes with a container for your weights so that you don't have to worry about losing them, in the case that you don't feel like rocking it at max weight. Also comes with spare pads to replace the ones on the bottom of your mouse for when they inevitably wear out (great foresight, Utech!)

Cons: -Cons: wouldn't have purchased a 2nd if I knew of any :>

Overall Review: I love this mouse, and this second purchase has solidified it my mind as the best on the market--might pick up a few spares for future sake One thing I noticed that I'll share: on my old mouse, it had more of a smooth finish, and the new one had a matte finish--a great change, helps prevent slipping when your hand gets hot & has a better tactile feel. 10/10

Great sound, terrible lifespan.

Pros: -Fantastic sound quality, easily the best headphones I own. -Comes with a carrying case that includes a varied selection of interchangeable tips, which is quite helpful for people like me that have atypical ear canals (id est, earbuds usually do not fit). -Aesthetic design. -Not product related, but the shipping was incredibly quick.

Cons: -Carrying case seems a few millimeters too small to comfortably fit the headphones; not a deal breaker by any means, though. -In less than 2 hours of use, the left headphone dropped to between 20-30% percent volume. Tried a temporary solution found online (sucking in on the earbud), restored function for about 2 minutes, then it fell again, quieter than before. The fix did not work a second time.

Overall Review: I appreciate the sound quality, but 2 hours of use is not equivalent to a $30 purchase. I'll request a RMA on the chance that this unit was simply faulty, but for the time being, I do NOT recommend purchasing this.

Pros: I upgraded to this from a RX 590, and I am so glad I did. -Runs on my 1440p monitor with zero issue. If your target is 1440p Ultra settings at 60 FPS, this'll do it -Quiet! I don't even hear this thing, I forget it has fans in the first place -Matches up with my X570 Taichi mobo :> -Good performance for the money, in my book -Shipped fast. WAY fast. Sonic the Hedgehog couldn't delivered this to me faster, so major props to Newegg for being awesome there -New drivers installed with no issues (using AMD's "Factory Reset" option)

Cons: -Low stock, high demand made this a difficult find; was blessed to check Nowinstock's site when I did to find one -Large profile; make sure your tower has room for this thing, I've a full size and it's a near-snug fit

Overall Review: Looks good, can't hear it for what I do, runs wonderfully. Only been a few weeks, but no regrets not waiting for a 6800xt. I recommend very much.
