Pros: Good sensor (but you already knew that); beautiful pearl white top; braided cable; subtle rubber texture on sides for grip; LEDs are soft (not glaring); good actuation & feedback clicks on all buttons. TORQ Unleash software is good. It has plenty of customization options for this mouse specifically but also integrates Windows' settings into the software, too. No need to jump between two places! The software really enhances the user experience.
Cons: Middle click is a lot more stiff compared to the top & side buttons (expecting it to soften with use). Mouse accel. is on by default for some reason...but these are very minor issues. Bad build quality of scroll wheel.
Other Thoughts: Would be great to have alternate versions of this mouse (specifically the top piece)—different colors to match setups and maybe a matte, soft rubber texture instead of shiny & smooth. Overall, it's still a high-performing, beautiful mouse for the sale price, and it's still worth it at MSRP!
UPDATE: Within 13 days of use, the scroll wheel now squeaks and its rubber grip detached from the wheel completely. INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTED with the quality because it felt like a solid, well-built mouse.
This review is from: COUGAR Speed 2 CGR-XBRON5M-SPE Gaming Mouse Pad - Medium
Pros: Good value, super smooth surface, waterproof, stitched border.
Cons: The rubber texture at the bottom isn't as grippy as I expected.
Other Thoughts: Overall: still a good quality pad for under $20. Aesthetically: the logo on looks sharp and doesn't interfere with the surface texture at all. It appears to be laid into the fabric, so it won't peal or flake off pieces once worn or washed. This is a minor critique, but I wish the logo was a bit smaller.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -unrestricted intakes
-all intakes are dust-filtered
-a lot of positive pressure
-can fit any size GPU, CPU air cooler, & PSU
Cons: TIMELINE of failures:
Day 1: Broken front audio connector
Half a year later: rattling fans
8 months: Flicker power LEDs
9 months: Dust filter mesh starting to fall off.
Roughly 1 year later: completely dead power LEDs.
-flimsy side & top panels
-only 2 front USBs
-PSU intake/filter doesn't line up with short PSUs.
-no black wires on front panel connectors.
-must remove side panel to access dust filters.
-must remove top panel to access fan controllers.
-window scratches very easily.
-little cable management room in the back.
-CPU cut-out on the motherboard tray isn't big enough (limited compatibility).
-not enough cable tie-down points on the back.
-no rubber grommets for cable routing.
-none of the drive mounts are tool-less!
-orientation of the hard drives make it difficult for 90º SATA data cables with more difficulties for chained SATA power cables; basically expect to be making some U-turns when you connect your drives!!
Other Thoughts: I might've reviewed this case somewhere else or even on here before, and I remember giving it a decent score—that was only because I thought the issues were negligible. As time went on and having to LIVE with this case, more and more issues came up. I bought this case for it's great airflow, but that strong point cannot outlive the myriad of negatives present with this case. This is a $200+ case; that's surely a premium price tag, but it doesn't feel like a premium case AT ALL...nowhere even close to it. Oh, and trust me, I have emailed a rep. from SilverStone, and you know what the replay was towards my failing parts? The guy basically said that parts fail and that it's too bad. Great. A lousy one-year warranty on a premium product. Am I expected to buy a new SilverStone case every year, then? Absolutely ridiculous.
I feel nothing short of cheated, and I don't think I'd be wrong to feel incredibly disappointed and angry with this case. These feelings would be reasonable if this was a budget, sub-$100 case...BUT IT'S NOT. SilverStone is asking so much for this case and giving so little. This case is merely a travesty of a premium product.
I'll definitely be looking in another direction for my next case and never consider a SilverStone product ever again.
