Pros: Buttons, oh the buttons! Three different modes, I have one for general computer use/web browsing, another for Guild Wars 2, and last but not least; fps games. Being able to customize the thumb buttons with so many different color options. The buttons are easy to press, sensitivity is great (have mine set to 5700 dpi). I could go on and on, best mouse I've ever owned.
Cons: My dpi always sets to my lowest setting (300 dpi) when I start windows. It is kinda annoying having to press the assigned Dpi default button every time I start my computer. Only way I found to fix this is disabling the driver software from starting with windows. Having the software disabled does not affect the mouse settings or modes since I have it saved to the on board memory...but it does affect my logitech g35 headset which does not have on board memory, therefore disabling surround sound etc. So i had to decide between pressing the default dpi button every time I start windows, or launching the logitech driver software every time I start Windows and THEN pressing the dpi default button...I chose the first option. This con is just a small nit pick I noticed that does not affect the performance or quality, just kinda annoying.
Overall Review: The one con is not worth taking an egg off, this mouse is great, and the g-shift button is great for gaming and other tasks.
Pros: -Cool -Quiet -Sleek RGB -Love the design -Backplate -No gaming/performance issues with it EVGA scanner oc tool was a great "set it and forget it" utility to overclock my card to a stable setting. Was able to benchmark 3D Mark Firestrike and Firestrike ultra at 2138mhz, but sadly it crashed while gaming. Finally thought I had it stable at 2088, but it crashed after a couple of hours of gaming. The auto overclocking scanner tool in EVGA PrecisionX OC hooked me up with a completely stable clock after I got tired of manually doing it myself. Final oc at 2038.
Cons: -1 egg: There was an issue with the auto oc utility crashing at first, but it was patched within a couple of days of owning it. Feature should not have been available at all considering it was a known issue even in the beta version or whatever the reviewers had. -1 egg: The LED selection reverts back to default white after I restart my comp. I really want it to stay on the "Demo 1" option where it constantly transitions between rgb colors, so pretty. -1 egg: I emailed EVGA asking about the LED reverting back to white, but after about 4 weeks, I have not gotten a reply.
Pros: Great quality Beautiful cables Nice and white to go with my theme Sleeving is nice and tough!
Cons: Didn't run into any problems, kinda wish they had included cable combs like the bitfenix kits.
Overall Review: Price seems kinda steep, but having previously sleeved all my cables in my old case (Pain in the CULO), I felt no remorse throwing down $90, totally worth it.
