Pros: Cheap, USB 3.0, Decent speed the first day
Cons: no speed the 4th day. Doesn't work.
Pros: I don't have a whole lot of knowledge of audio hardware, but these things blow away every gamer headset I've ever owned. Granted, they don't have a microphone (I bought a clip-on one), the sound quality more than makes up for it.
Not only is the bass freakin' awesome, but it's still pretty dang silent to those not wearing them. I can't even hear myself type while listening to music.
I have a fairly large head (most fits-all hats don't fit me), and while these aren't adjustable, they fit perfectly and comfortably. The top rim of my ear is very sensitive and I've worn these for hours at a time with absolutely no discomfort because they go around my ears without putting any pressure on them. I hardly feel a difference with my glasses on, too, which is really nice.
Cons: The cord is a little too long for my tastes. Pretty insignificant detail, though.
Overall Review: With the coupon code, these are a STEAL. I have never owned a nicer pair of headphones.
Pros: Has the keyboard layout I like, cheap price.
Cons: Dead on Arrival. Would get 'Unrecognized USB Device' errors on all three of the PC's in my apartment.
Overall Review: Not something I'd expect from LITE-ON. I guess there's a reason it's only $8...
Pros: Pretty packaging, I guess. Fast shipping.
Cons: Came D.O.A. Had to send an RMA request, 2nd pack I got was dead on arrival too.
Overall Review: I'm done with these, from now on I'll just buy my eggs at the grocery store.
Pros: Came with a couple SATA cables.
Cons: Dead On Arrival. I have a client that I'm building a PC for and they're not very pleased they have to wait for the RMA process.
Pros: Great feel, interchangeable grips make for comfort based on your hand, cool changeable LED colors. Precise and smooth-gliding for great control in games.
Cons: After about 12 months of use, the cord has frayed right where the mouse is and causes the mouse to disconnect and reconnect - you can tell with the windows XP "badum, bading" sounds. I haven't had a Logitech mouse last longer than 11 months yet.
Overall Review: I've been a huge fan of Logitech but lately, as I've had so many of their mice die right after warranty wears out, that I'm afraid to buy from them again. Their customer service, when I complained about how long they last, just told me how to find the serial number of my mouse and completely ignored me.
Pros: Big ol' screen, refresh rate is decent, contrast ratio is decent. Great monitor for the price.
Cons: None so far
Pros: Really liked how the chassis fan clicks in instead of requiring screws. Didn't have to use the motherboard-mounting brass hexagonal things, whatever they're called. It's also quite light.
Cons: Had to really struggle to get the thing that squeezes down expansion cards (PCI, PCI-E) to screw in and clamp down.
Overall Review: First time buying a Rosewill case, I was a bit worried - but it turned out pretty good.
Pros: Good tracking, comfortable fit. Battery lasts about 3 days of hard fps ownage and only about 3 hours to full charge.
Cons: The charger sucks. The connector that plugs into the base is loose and I've been very careful with it, but I do have to move it because I go to LAN parties, so it's been unplugged a few times. And the base itself it is very hard to get the mouse to actually start charging. Plug and pray. I have to move mine around for a few minutes before it actually starts charging. Also the wireless can only go about 2.5 feet away from the receiver. Pretty weak in my opinion, it jumps around just using it on my desk. It also just stopped scrolling up/down pages, not a software issue because I tried in another computer.
Overall Review: I'm never going to buy a wireless mouse from Logitech again. Probably not a wireless mouse ever, though. Logitech makes amazing mice, but wireless ones aren't there strong point.
Pros: Very sleek black look. Bios gives a lot of options. A lot of USB ports. Rest of the pros are in the specs, pretty powerful motherboard.
Cons: The IDE controller on this motherboard is at the bottom, in order for my IDE cable to reach my dvd burner and an old hdd I use for storage, I had to move the burner to the bottom slot in my case. Not really a big deal, I think I'm the only one left here that actually uses IDE still anyway.
Overall Review: This thing didn't come with any screws; I don't think it's supposed to (it's not on the package contents list), but that's strange to me. I had to use my old motherboard's screws.
Pros: Case is beautiful! Matches the rest of my blue-glowing peripherals. Good cooling with just two huge fans, convenient external usb/firewire/headphone ports.
Cons: Door in the front is quite heavy, when carrying this to friends house for lans it swings open while you're carrying it. Not really a big deal.
Overall Review: I've always been afraid to check 'rush processing'. Is Newegg going to go back in time and ship my order before I even order it?? I don't like possibilities of a paradox.
Pros: Addicting. Fun.
Cons: Addicting. Buggy. On maintenance day some of my items dissapeared (along with 40+ pages of peoples items vanishing on the same day), and they are refusing to replace any of it.
Pros: Huge screen, great ms (no ghosting!)
Cons: I have a yellow pixel. I believe it is from the blue sub-pixel dieing out. just getting it for christmas of 05', only about 4 months later I have a dead pixel. The monitor is still on warranty though you must have 7 dead pixels in order for them to do anything about it.
Pros: Runs Q4 on ultra at a decent resolution. This card owns! Haven't tried SLI yet, but I may get two of these. The card itself looks really good inside my case. Has no heat issues at stock settings... Nvidia did a great thing by releasing the 64 bit drivers for this card.
Cons: No bundled software besides the driver CD (I use the newer nvidia ones anyway).
Overall Review: My System;
This 7800 GTX OC
4000+ AMD Athlon64 San Diego
2x1Gig OCZ Platinum ram
DFI Lan Party NF4 SLI-DR
Comments: Theres not enough room to tell you how beautiful my graphics are in each and every game, but in WoW I can run in Iron Forge with the highest settings possible at 1600x1200. It is a chore to get first person shooters to lag. Quake 4 runs on ULTRA-HIGH at 1280x1024 and still runs 60 FPS. This card is sweet and it has been taking care of me nicely.
Comments: Does this fit a Thermaltake Tsunami? I may buy it if it does, but im not wasiting money if it doesnt fit.
Comments: This mouse is unbelievable comfortable. The only con it has is it's pretty short cable, but it shouldn't be a problem. It comes with a usb->ps2 connector so if your computer doesn't have any usb (although I don't recommend it) you can use the older ports.
I am a gamer but I also use applications like photoshop and 3dsmax. I have noticed that it is alot better for all three of these things.
If you have any doubts of this mouse - forget them. It is perfect for webbrowsing, with many mouse-buttons that don't get in the way, gaming, and precision applications such as photoshop.
Also the mouse is beautiful looking too. I washed my mousepad before even plugging the mouse in. It is very sexy.
The programs it comes with are helpful, they even have features such as negating the alt+tab keystrokes by having 1 of 8 buttons do it for you. I dont think I even need a keyboard with this mouse.
Also, it slides verrry smoothly on almost any surface. My old microsoft intellimouse didnt slide very smooth and also had so many cracks to get dirt in. The things the mx510 slides on aren't just stickers like most other/older mice, it is a hard material that is securely fashioned to the mouse.
Overall I give this mouse a 9.8/10 - the .2 because I would wish that the cord be just another foot longer. It isn't that huge of a problem as it reaches and I still have room to spare.
If you're a gamer, artist, or a noob, this mouse is for you. If you are human, this mouse is for you. Even if you don't even have a computer, get this mouse first, so you can look at its beauty.
