Cyborg CCB437080002/04/1 Black USB Wired Laser 6400 dpi R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse
Cyborg CCB437080002/04/1 Black USB Wired Laser 6400 dpi R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse

Pros: I was really hyped about this mouse when it was first announced and got it as soon as it was available on the internet. This mouse does not disappoint. - Like advertised you can adjust the mouse to make it fit nicely into your hand. Great for palm and claw grippers. - This is a heavy mouse but heft makes your movements more consistent at the cost of speed. So depending on your play style this can be a pro or con. -Due to the custom fit, I experience less fatigue after long hours of playing despite the weight of the mouse.

Cons: - Maybe too sensitive sensor? Your cursor might move whenever you click the mouse. It's not much to be noticeable while playing most games but can annoy you sometimes. If you're one to double click units in SC2 then this mouse might make you relearn how to select your units since the one pixel movement of the cursor makes the game not register the double click but rather as two single clicks. - Not for fingertip grips. I used to have a fingertip grip but it's no longer possible to use such a grip with the size of this mouse.

Overall Review: Still works great after a year. Definitely recommended to any gamer despite its small quirks. But get a good mousepad a long with it in order to minimize con #1.

Seems like a reliable PSU but noise..

Pros: Does what it's supposed to and fairly quiet while idle..

Cons: While under load its another story, it's too loud with a hum. An i7 920, Sapphire 6950, and 3 HDs really shouldn't have been pushing it. It's a little unbearable for me, I will most likely be returning it.

Great Keyboard

Pros: 1. Looks awesome 2. Easy to clean 3. Feels great.

Cons: I just wish the USB cable was detachable from the back of the keyboard to allow for easier dusting

Great Keyboard Overall

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard CherryMX Red Switch USB
Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard CherryMX Red Switch USB

Pros: Cherry Red Switches work very nice. Keys feel awesome. They are smooth but have a bit of grip to them. Even though Cherry Red switches are not great for typing, they were enough to increase my WPM by 10-20 without trying. Lights are awesome. Only wish it lit up the whole keyboard.

Cons: Only problem I've noticed is in Starcraft 2. The keyboard sometimes doesn't respond at the start of the match (annoying since my worker production timing is thrown off). It's situational and sometimes reproduceable by minimizing before the match starts. So I don't think it's a hardware problem but something with the drivers maybe?

Overall Review: All in all fantastic keyboard. Been repeatedly smashing keys in Starcraft 2 and still look and feel fantastic.

Works Great as Access Point

D-Link Powerline Router (DHP-1320) Wireless N300, Up to 200Mbps PowerLine, Hybrid
D-Link Powerline Router (DHP-1320) Wireless N300, Up to 200Mbps PowerLine, Hybrid

Pros: 1. Newegg had it for an awesome price with the powerline adapter 2. Does what it's supposed it. Before I had a dead spot on the other side of the house, now with the powerline adapter, I can provide connectivity there with almost no wires (barring the power cable). 3. Fast, quick. No need to reboot regularly. 4. Easy set up.

Cons: 1. Probably not worth regular price.

Overall Review: Range is not special. It's not much different as compared to my Verizon Fios router.
