ASUS ROG Gladius 90MP0081-B0UA00 Steel Grey 6 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 6400 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It comes with two USB cables.
It doesn't have more buttons than needed.
It comes with replacement switches, which is why I bought it.

Cons: Oh, where do I begin? Oh, build quality is a good start. Or lack thereof.
The sliding soles had been haphazardly stuck on, missing the cut-out for them, so the sole edges actually stick up and snags the mouse pad. It comes with extras, but if I use them now, I won't be able to change the switches in the future, because the soles have to be removed to do that.
The shorter of the USB cables is way too stiff for mouse use - the zig-zag pattern due to folding persists, and the cable kinks WILL catch on anything.
The plastic squeaks when using it. I guess live mice squeak, but computer mice shouldn't.

Other Thoughts: The mouse is not usable for full hand use as advertised, unless you're a child. The switches are so light that the resting weight of adult male fingers will click them. And the back button is too far back to reach with adult hands.
The advertised feature of the settings being stored in the mouse itself is misleading at best. The DPI switch appears to have no effect unless you use the mouse on a system with ROG Armoury installed. I had hoped that like my old Microsoft mouse (which isn't made anymore), the settings would REALLY be handled by the mouse, so the DPI switch would work in Linux or other computers without the ASUS software installed. Not so.
This probably won't be a problem for most, but it also draws 150 mA, which is 50 more than delivered by old USB (1.0/1.1) ports. If you plan to use it on an older computer, or one where the ports don't deliver more than 100 mA while still in BIOS mode before the OS starts, you may need a powered hub.
I'm also unsure about the DPI accuracy - this mouse moves less at 2400 DPI than my old did at 1600.
There are no ferrite cores on either on the USB cables, which I'd expect for expensive mice. It means that if you also use your computer for audio work, you may want to unplug and use a different mouse while not gaming.

Nippon Labs 25 ft. Premium 3.5mm Audio Stereo Speaker 25ft Cable M/M Model SPC-25MM 25 feet
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap. Black.

Cons: The cable is so thin and low quality that it's really unusable for its intended purpose: audio signals. The attenuation is really high, and the lack of shielding means it picks up noise.

Other Thoughts: It's too cheap to return. In reality, I bought a 25 foot string. I'm sure I can use it to tie something with.

Logitech G27 (941-000045) Racing Wheel

3 out of 5 eggs Good, not great 05/27/2013

This review is from: Logitech G27 (941-000045) Racing Wheel

Pros: Advanced steering wheel.
Partially leather clad.

Cons: Obviously lower quality than the former MOMO wheel Logitech had. More buttons, but less weight and solid feel.
Sharp edges on the aluminum paddles required filing down because they were sharp enough to cut fingers.
The aluminum shield on the button panel is flapping because it's so loose - there's no way to fasten it; it's just bad tolerance values.
The pedal set slides on smooth floors. The small rubber pads don't provide nearly enough traction, so unless you have a carpet and can use the carpet hooks, you need to place something behind the pedals to prevent them from sliding.

Other Thoughts: The bean counters have had a field day with this product. I really wish quality would improve with new models, not go down. I would gladly trade all the extra features like extra buttons and HUD switches for something simpler with higher quality.
It's still one of the better wheels you can get, and the price is good for the tech you get, just not for the quality.
