RAZER Orochi USB Gaming Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Not serviceable as a wireless mouse 11/24/2014

This review is from: RAZER Orochi USB Gaming Mouse

Pros: - Great sensor
- Great form factor
- Feels amazing

Cons: - ~15 hours of battery life with rechargeable AAs
- Poor range with even minor obstructions
- Razer software is terrible

Other Thoughts: I used the original model Orochi for nearly 3 years as my desktop mouse with no issues, I finally decided it was a little too beat up and "upgraded" to this. For comparison the old Orochi gets about 5x better battery life, and tracks flawlessly in nearly any environment.

I actually returned the first of these mice that I received assuming I had gotten a dud, but unfortunately the wireless range and battery issues appear to come from poor design. In order to get proper reception I had to run an extended antenna from my WiFi/Bluetooth card to the back of my monitor so that the transmission distance is no more than about 24 inches, and in order to use it as my daily driver I have to swap batteries every other day.

These factors along with the constant annoyance from the Razer software combine to severely diminish the appeal and utility of the mouse when used wirelessly, which is the whole point of the device.

Habey EMC-600BL Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Case 60W
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Awesome for the price 06/10/2014

This review is from: Habey EMC-600BL Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Case 60W

Pros: - Cheap
- Pretty
- Aluminum
- Black
- Includes power supply
- Easy to drill through

Cons: - The power port is on the side...which looks horrible
- The power supply is kinda cheap, requires 5+ seconds after shut down before it's ready to boot again. This isn't a huge deal, just don't try to click the power button twice in quick succession or you may get a power light, but no boot.

Other Thoughts: There is actually enough room on the back of the case to drill a new mounting hole for the DC jack ,but it's a really, really tight fit (I had ~1mm of metal left between the I/O shield cut-out and the hole to give the jack enough room to make it work) and you'll have to bend the overhang from your I/O shield up next to the jack, although you won't see this from the outside.

If you do drill a new hole for the DC jack the leftover hole can still be used for an RP-SMA (WiFi) jack, even though it's larger than it needs to be, and the washer will cover up the extra gap.
