Pros: The mouse has a great feel to it. It definitely does the job pretty well. I don't do much for online FPS games, but I'm sure the sniper button will help out a bit on my next playthrough of Fallout or some such.
Cons: I've tried and tried and tried. I've updated drivers, tried older drivers, updated firmware, restarted countless times, deleted old drivers, but I always still have the same old problem. The mouse will go inactive for about 5 seconds like it's been unplugged. I'll even hear the windows sound for a device being unplugged. It'll then play the windows sound for a device being plugged back in, and the mouse's functionality returns to normal. The mouse will do this roughly every 5 minutes. I can't do justice in 3000 letters as to how annoying this is while in the middle of a heated online game like D3. Starting to get to the end of my rope with this thing.
Aside from that I'd say that it's pretty good. The sniper button is placed a bit far from the other two side buttons, though. I've got big hands, and it's still a bit of an issue. Not that I'm an avid user of a mouse's side buttons yet, but moving between them still seems a bit awkward. Despite the placement, though, sniper button is pretty ingenious.
This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
Pros: I've owned 3 of these over the years. I love them. They're comfortable, and pretty high quality for the price, usually. My wife still uses one I bought years ago. Usually quite durable.
Cons: The one I just purchased for my new gaming rig broke within a week. I assume there was something wrong with how the cord was made, because a little tug detached both jacks. Creative refuses to replace them. Any hint of physical damage is apparently reason enough to deny my request. The emails they sent me were in very broken english, as well:
I apologise for this matter. As there are different factor that can caused the result, therefore, we cannot confirm that the reason the cable is damage is due to the way the wires are spliced. As your headphone is out of warranty, I afraid that if you send to us to do replacement or RMA, you will have to pay a service fee charge. Since you purchase it from Newegg, you may try to contact them regarding you situation and check if they are able to do any replacement or repair for your headphone.
Well... Thanks, Creative, after I do my RMA with newegg I don't know if I'll be buying from you again.
This review is from: Rosewill CAPSTONE 650M 650W Modular Power Supply (80 PLUS GOLD Certified)
Pros: Works great, easy to set up. It's got some nice reviews, pretty cheap for a gold psu.
Cons: I suppose the only con is that I haven't tested how it's going to work in the long run. Runs what I have great, though.
Other Thoughts: Intel z77 mobo
i5 3570k cpu
evga gforce 670 gpu
16 gb of samsung MV-3V4G3D/US ram
240 gb intel ssd
1 tb samsung F3 hard drive
Hyper 212 EVO cpu cooler
From what I can tell I could likely put another gpu in and still be fine with this psu.
