Well, this is the first mouse I have used in a long time that has hands down beat my other competition mice. I have retired my Rat 7 Pro because I like this mouse better. It also beat my Roccat Kone in versatility. I am a heavy gamer and modder and love to have programmable buttons and keys at my fingertips. Honestly, this is the perfect mouse for me. It fits the bill for all my professional software and gaming needs. I honestly never thought about a MMO mouse for my daily driver, but I am very thankful NewEgg sent this to me to test.

This mouse is at a very good price point and is really a good buy overall. As you might expect it is great for games, and if you can use 16K DPI you are a true stud in my books. I think 16K is overkill on a mouse and I doubt many people could actually handle that amount of precision. With that said, the mouse tracks incredibly well, I am able to use it far better in Paint Shop Pro than any of my previous mice to cut items and paint with. The best part about this mouse is the programmable side buttons because I save myself tonnes of time by having my hotkeys programmed into them. Right at my thumbs tip is quite handy, as long as I can remember them.

The software is pretty easy to use, it is a little wonky, and I have had a few times where it has to reprogram the mouse. So that still needs some work, but it is pretty good software.

For my large hands, it is very comfortable, and there is no real need for external customization other than the side button slider.

For gaming it is really nice to be able to have quick settings at my thumbs control, I have been able to improve my game play because of the precision of the laser, and having quicker response time getting out items needed to fight.

Cons: Cons
-Setting up lighting is very strange
-12 side buttons are too many
-buttons are too small
I don't really have much to complain about this mouse it is very good, but I think the engineering team should take this honest feedback and do some redesign. Twelve buttons may work for a kid with small fingers, but not an adult with larger hands. I would rather see an 9 button version with bigger buttons and a better tactile centring system than what is on this mouse. I do not like having to look at my thumb placement to know when I am centred on the buttons. Also the 10-12 buttons just end up being useless to me, because of the agility of the thumb overall. Even with my long thumb, and the buttons slid all the way forward it is still uncomfortable for me to use those buttons. Only the first nine are comfortable.

So here is how this mouse could be improved: Use only 9 buttons arranged in a convex shape. Enlarge the buttons by about 15 to 25% and change the number five button tactile feel, for centring the thumb. If you did this, this could be the perfect mouse.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this is probably the best deal in MMO mice, it works great and is easy to program for gaming. The software still needs some work, but it isn't any worse than most other mouse software. It is a good quality product and should last quite a long time. At least you won't go broke buying it! Don't hesitate to get this mouse, if it can replace my old mouse as a daily driver, then it is worthy!

Glad to see Corsair redeem themselves after my last mishap with one of their mice.

Corsair Gaming HARPOON RGB Gaming Mouse, Backlit RGB LED, 6000 dpi, Optical
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Cheap if you are on a budget.

As far as mice go it does the trick for basic functions and the mouse wheel feels really good.

The mouse tracks well and seems to pass all of my accuracy tests, but really in today's market, they all work well.

Cons: I really have a bad taste in my mouth with this mouse. The corsair software for this mouse totally crashed my computers usb drivers. In fact the software never completely installed and I will not jeopardize my system for horrible software, So I cannot tell you about those.

The mouse is pretty lightweight so if you like them sturdy or weighted then stay away. I have pretty big and long hands and this mouse was too small for me, but it was comfortable enough for testing.

Other Thoughts: overall, I would spend my money on another mouse, as this one is not the right mouse for me.

5 out of 5 eggs Linksys Docsis 3.0 343Mbps 11/03/2016

This review is from: Linksys CM3008 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (8x4 Bonded channels)

Pros: Pros
Compact
Proper Led indicators
Easy setup
Works with all Major Cable providers

Cons: Cons
Didn't save me a lease fee

Other Thoughts: Normally I would do a pretty in-depth review for a network item, but in this case, it does not warrant it because this is a cable modem. It only connects your personal network to the Cable HSP. The key thing to note is that this is for 100Mbs Services and below. This item is also IPV6 ready. The only thing I had to do was call my cable provider so that we could input the Mac address into the system so that it would work. This modem is pretty much plug and play. The only thing you may have to do is call the cable provider, so the equipment in recognized in the Cable network. The cable provider also did all needed testing and it works like a champ.

During internet speed testing; I was shocked! That my peak speed was 10% higher, but the best part was the increase in overall performance . It was much more stable and consistently higher speeds. Even my ping was lowered which is pretty incredible. I am VERY pleased with this modem, coupled with My ASUS AC Router my performance is quite phenomenal for a home network.

Unlike my old equipment, this unit is compact and is barely warm to the touch. The indicator lights tell me exactly what I need to know to troubleshoot as well. Only time will tell how reliable it is, but since heat is not an issue, I am sure it will last many years.

I can find no fault with this product, other than it didn't save me any money on my bill.

The price is right on this product! I highly reccomend!
