GIGABYTE ECO600 GM-ECO600 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser 1600 dpi Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Great mouse except for one important detail... 09/21/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE ECO600 GM-ECO600 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser 1600 dpi Mouse

Pros: This mouse feels great. It has a nice fit and feels comfortable in my hand. It also has a nice weight to it. I'm not sure how useful the DPI controls are since I have to adjust my mouse speed every time I up the DPI.

Cons: There is a fundamental problem with this mouse: it lags and/or stops registering movements/clicks. This happens frequently at a distance of 3-4 ft to the receiver (which is a very reasonable distance). Moving the receiver within 2 ft helps, but does not eliminate the problem. This isn't as noticeable for every day tasks, but I definitely notice it during gaming, at which point the lack of performance is unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I was not impressed with the support from Gigabyte:

My mouse frequently lags and/or stops registering movements and clicks. This happens at a distance of roughly 3-4 feet between the mouse and the receiver. When I move the receiver within 1-2 feet of the mouse, it works fine, with the occasional lag. I've used several other wireless mice that did not have a problem with a range of 3-4 feet. Did I get a defective receiver with my ECO600?
Dear customer,

Sorry for the inconvenience, I can see that you've covered all possible troubleshootings, please submit the following form for RMA request:

They were pretty quick to give up. I've never really had a problem with Gigabyte products. I'm a big fan of their motherboards. However, this product was a disappointment.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 GV-R487D5-1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good performance.

Cons: Very loud. The fan can't be controlled by software, so you have to buy an external fan controller. This fan is easily the loudest in my case. Very annoying. AND on top of that, the card runs very hot. What's the point of having such a loud fan if its not even going to do a good job cooling the video card?
