Pros: * Great tracking (Bluetrack)
* Great build quality
* As expected, nice software integration with Windows (10 in my case)
* Blue Start Menu button is handy
Cons: Just too different for me. I gave this mouse a month of 8 hrs a day use before writing this review and it still feels strange to me. Not sure if I'll ever love the mouse ergonomics.
Pros: Fast, Good Value...
Cons: Bought four of these to build a Raid. One of the four was DOA. After 3 months, another failed.
Overall Review: Typically very happy with WD, not sure what's going on with this model.
Comments: Ordered on 9/26 and got Rev 1.x which has irritated me a bit considering there seems to be no rhyme or reason to the way Rev 2s and Rev 1s are allocated by Newegg. I'd bet the active cooling makes a HUGE difference.
Many Rev 1.x's are not stable out of the box. They can freeze if there's any extended/difficult use. Prime95 for me crashes in about 5 seconds (with stock settings). Most have recommended boosting Vcore to 1.80. I did this and it runs hotter but doesn't seem to freeze anymore during games (still can't last more than 2 minutes on Prime95. Rumor is that 3/10 Rev 1.x's are not stable to quantify a bit.
Had to get this because my 8RDA+ died in Hurricane Isabel, and it's difficult to find these days because it's such a great board. Would prefer to have back my 8RDA+...
