This review is from: RAZER Naga Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming Mouse
Pros: Great number of buttons, very precise, software is very good, braided cord.
Cons: Mouse is a bit too small for my taste, and a bit light.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a great mouse. The DPI is excellent, looks great, I love the illumination, and the software is quite easy to use. My only complaints, and these are purely subjective and a matter of preference, is that the mouse is quite a bit too small for me, and a bit too light. My hands are not larger than average at all, but I like being able to palm my mice, and I like them to have a bit of heft to them. The only real problem I had with the mouse was that the teflon cushion around the laser was thicker than the main cushion, so the mouse had a tendency to teeter on it, which drove me completely nuts until I removed it. But if you prefer smaller mice, I would highly recommend this mouse, especially for MMO's, which are it's intended market...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Bose® Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system
Pros: Great sound, clear highs and solid lows. And while virtual 5.1 from 3 speakers is still not quite up to par with true 5.1, it's still very good. It's also nice not having the need to mount any rear satellites, or have speaker stands behind you as well as the associated wiring. But even at high volume levels, the sound stays clear. Overall, I've been extremely happy with them.
Cons: The price is quite steep, but that's not unusual for Bose. And it is still virtual 5.1, so it's not quite as good as the real thing. The only other complaint I have is that the connection to the control pod on the sub woofer had gotten a little loose and caused me some hassle, but I was able to repair it. To be fair, I have had them over a year now, and I have moved a couple of times since I bought them.
Other Thoughts: It is pretty important to have the speakers set as they show in the guide, as well as the distance from where you sit. If you get to far out of position, the virtual surround is diminished significantly. But, as I said before, they are only virtual surround, and so are not perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GH-WIU02 3D Galaxy II Liquid Cooling
Pros: Good system, especially for newcomers to liquid cooling. Simple setup, and everything is there. I also like having an external, case attached radiator. The radiator shroud does a good job of protecting the radiator as well. The low coolant alarm and shutoff feature is nice as well. Also like that they include a fan to attach to the cooling block to help make up for the loss of airflow you would otherwise have over the chipset, depending on what type of motherboard you have.
Cons: Can be a pain in the backside to install, depending on what kind of case you have. Would have preferred a copper radiator, even at the incurred price increase. Was not impressed by the coolant.
Other Thoughts: Running a Q6600 @ 3 GHz, it idles right at room temp with radiator fan running at minimum. At full load, it has never gone above 35 degrees. Also, I was lucky that I had a Gigabyte 3d Aurora 570 case(Early version of the Sumo 5115, for the most part), so installation was a snap since the case was designed to utilize the cooling system. In other systems, it could be a pain to place the pump. Also, I wouldn't recommend the coolant that comes in the box, though that may just have been a fluke. It wasn't quite scale, persay, but did coat the hoses and reserviors with a film. I was able to clean it all out easily, but I couldn't do anything to clean my 5.25 reservior. I've since changed to another coolant, and not had a problem since.READ FULL REVIEW
