Pros: Low cost for Laser mouse, its a laser mouse, back/forward buttons.
Cons: I owned the mouse 8 months. during that time it went through periods where it would randomly stop working until i unplugged and replugged it in. then that problem would stop a while, until it started again. now, the left click button doesnt work about 1/3 of the time i click it, and when it does work, half the time it registers as a double click. also the cord is too short it barely goes from under my desk to on top of it.
Overall Review: It's very light. that is a pro or con depending on your personal preferences. I would recommend the sidewinder x5, which is boatloads better for only $10 more.
Pros: cheapest laser mouse available
Cons: it takes 5 seconds to switch dpi, and you cant use the mouse during this time. the mouse randomly stops working every 10 minutes or so and you need to unplug it and plug it in again so it will work. i originally reviewed this well, but then i used it longer.
Pros: switchable dpi, laser mouse, browser buttons. good for non-gamers.
Cons: left button squeaks sometimes, the way to switch dpi is to hold the left and right buttons down for three seconds, and i know for many games that has a function, so this mouse not for gamers.
Pros: The keys have the perfect amount of resistance to me, it is a good keyboard that requires no drivers to use hotkeys. And it is at a price most keyboards should be at but arent.
Overall Review: Even though its not required, the logitech setpoint software supports this keyboard and i reccomend it.
Pros: Actual disk size is 700 Gb, which is less than claimed, but you never get what is claimed with any HDD. 32 mb cache and 7200 rpm, with 700gb result in a drive that has super fast read and write speeds, balanced with large storage.
Overall Review: dont waste your money on a raptor, they arent THAT much faster, you probably wont notice. get this.
Pros: Not a big price, 1800 Mhz OC'd like they claim, and they look cool :)
Overall Review: everyone should have these in their system. some people were worried they only work with intel, but run an AMD system and they work better than they should!
Pros: Wow. dual core, att 3.1 Ghz, and not even OC'd, for $100.
I highly reccomend this for all lifestyles, even gaming.
Cons: None. runs cool, too.
Overall Review: unless you do REALLY heavy proffesional stuff, or super heavy gaming, this is good. for you other guys, i reccomend the phenom II x4, which is only another $85
Pros: does what its supposed to do, and it doesnt get hot even after long use, which indicates to me it will last a long time. Mesh around wires greatly improves airflow, and looks better with my clear-sided case, as do the LED's.
Cons: none really, the two SATA power connectors are on the same wire and could be a bit farther apart. so there is no stretch, but not a big problem at all.
Overall Review: Blue LED's wooo!
Pros: Amazing mobo at a great price. This board supports many useful features from Asus (whom i LOVE) including Express Gate, which is a mini operating system on the BIOS that allows you to view pictures, listen to music, SURF THE INTERNET! use skype, as well as most major chat apps. Love it.
Cons: Some Mobos have cool LED's and not this one? (actually it does have a small green one for power indication) So none.
Overall Review: The support from Asus was great too. I lost the IO shield before I built my computer so I called Asus and they sent me a new one that arrived in 5 days.
Another user rated this 1 egg and complained about a whole bunch of problems he had, and the symptoms look like he didnt have enough RAM, motherboard couldnt have done that.
Pros: Not uber expensive as some cases are, but not a cheap case as others this price are. There are 4 blue LED's on the fan attached to the clear panel. It even comes with a guide to assembling a pc if youve never done it before. Used it on a new build working wonderfully with windows 7!
Cons: Temperature is displayed only in Celsius, Fahrenheit would be nice too, but amazing case all the same.
It has a power button. i accidentally kicked the button writing this review actually :)
Overall Review: Would definately buy again. check out the red version, too.
