Pros: Bought this nearly 4 years ago, it's provided excellent cooling power on an overclocked CPU (i7, from 2.6 to 3.8 ghz) which has been running almost daily.
Cons: I'm writing this review now because the fan just recently started to rattle loudly, so I'm replacing the fan part ($11 fan replacement cost). After 4 years, that's much more of a recommendation than a complaint.
Pros: Been gaming pretty heavily with this, and quite pleased. Only one negative issue, which I was able to fix (see below).
Cons: The issue I had though is my entire computer would freeze, and I traced the problem to this graphics card...it was overheating, and would lock up to cool itself. Perhaps some light dust caused it to overheat after a few months, but I noticed the fan was stuck at 40%. I adjusted it to 50%, and now no problems (room temp, lots of use). I was surprised it doesn't automatically adjust. It's still very quiet.
Pros: - Having 12 buttons, of course
- Great software (profiles, macros, etc)
- Lightweight, ultra sensitive (but adjustable), responsive.
Cons: - not well grounded,
static shock killed my mouse after 1yr, and i lost receipt :()
