This review is from: UtechSmart Venus 16400 DPI High Precision Laser MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: - Excellent software interface
-Excellent precision and dynamic programmability
-Smooth motion, decent weight to it
-plenty of buttons and easy DPI setting
Cons: -Scroll wheel button failed after 1.5 years. Given that I use this as a CAD mouse, and I need that button to rotate, the mouse is not trash and I have to shell out a fortune on a new one when that should not happen. I've owned two, the other hasn't had that issue yet but it doesn't feel like a well made part
-Buttons require a bit of force to push, enough that I have to change how I grip the mouse to hit them, suboptimal situation there.
Other Thoughts: -There ring finger rest is good, but there should be a button over there. Maybe add a pinky rest too
-Improve your switch quality. I'm an engineer, I know it's possible for the price you charge, don't cheap out.
This review is from: UtechSmart Venus 50 to 16400 DPI Laser MMO Gaming Mouse for PC - 18 Programmable Buttons, Weight Tuning Cartridge, 12 Side Buttons, 5 Programmable User Profiles, Omron Micro Switches (Dark Gray)
Pros: -Good software, works well and easily
-Lots of functionality and flexibility
-Good size and solid construction
-Comfortable to hold
-Excellent DPI settings and functionality
-Good scroll with impact per "scroll click"
Cons: -Weight holder hangs loose even when locked, dragging on table and causing resistance, minor issue.
-side buttons require too much force to press, so your finger lifts up off the trigger to do so. This makes it annoying and time consuming, but still faster than keyboard shortcuts.
-even with all weights, fairly light
-could use a wider thumb rest and pinky rest, but you don't always have the most desk room so it works
Other Thoughts: I use this as a CAD mouse with my 3d navigator. 12 CAD shortcuts speed me up considerably, I LOVE it for that, I can model and draw about 6-9x faster than coworkers with this mouse in Solidworks and about 15-20x faster in inventor (due to contextual shortcuts increasing the flexibility of the mouse from 12 total shortcuts to about 48).
I also play some CS:GO with it, and other games, which it is great for with it's high DPI at low mouse sensitivity.
Overall, I'd highly recormmend this mouse for any work or play situation, but if they made the side buttons easy to press without contorting your hand, it would be the ideal mouse out there, without exception.
This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, Comes With Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: This case is solid.
-Plenty of room for HDDs, SSDs, and various reader drives
-plenty of room for PCI-e cards
-Plenty of fans, cooling capacity
Cons: Power Supply attachment points are sub par and non reversable, which is odd by not a solid harm.
-Fans are not caged, and large, so it takes *very* good cable management skills to prevent them from hitting fan blades
-Fans that come with case aren't great, I've had 2 of mine die since I bought it (top and front).
-No way to clean front air filter
-Only enough room for a single 140x140 radiator, and it was a tight fit.
Other Thoughts: I've had this case for a few years, it's served me well. thing is a beast, looks great. But getting to various important things is difficult, as is making it really work for you. I'm about to replace it with another Rosewill case that seems better suited to my needsREAD FULL REVIEW
