Pros: - It's crazy powerful!
- Looks nice.
Cons: - Super Duper Insanely Loud Coil Whine. These things are so hard to get, I don't want to send it in for a repair/replacement but you'd think for $700 (after tax), EVGA wouldn't send out a top-end card with coil whine. I had it on both of my (also EVGA) 970s, and I think my next card will be from someone else. Clearly their quality control is done in a building where people wear noise-cancelling headphones.
Other Thoughts: If you wear headphones, then there are no downsides to buying this card (aside from availability).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Mamba Tournament Edition Chroma Gaming Mouse
Pros: Works great! I only use the DPI at around 3500, so that insane 16k DPI is mostly wasted on me. The lights are gorgeous and programmable, although I ran into issues where selecting different segments to make them do things would affect ALL segments...bah, I just left it on default in the end. I find the grip of the mouse to be VERY comfortable, after the disappointment from the new Diamondback.
Cons: Subtracting one star because the mouse came with the annoying loss of cursor control in games, and Razer never, ever responded to my email about it, nor does Synapse detect the "bad firmware" and offer to update it. I ended up searching online for the firmware update, the fast way to find it is posted below. It WILL fix the issue if you have it!
Other Thoughts: Mine had the "cursor works fine until I play a game" issue others have described on here. This is easily fixed with a firmware update to the mouse. Unfortunately, It's not directly available on Razer's site, they send you a link for the file after a few days of emailing them, which is unacceptable. I can't post a link here, but search "razer mamba TE issue right now", the top link to a reddit post has the download link in it. Obviously, don't grab this if yours works fine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Razer Diamondback Chroma RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: The sensor worked perfectly. The Chroma lighting is really neat, but it replaced the reason I liked the original Diamondback.
Cons: I went through 3 original Diamondback mice, I LOVED the feel of them. Unfortunately, I was apparently "doing it wrong", because I used the rubber ring (now replaced by the Chroma light ring) to position the mouse. With it gone, I never felt like I was in control of the mouse. If I used the indentations near the bottom of the mouse, my fingers would always brush the mousepad. I kept it for several days, hoping I'd get used to it. I eventually returned it and bought the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition, which has the same internals but a comfier design.
Other Thoughts: There's nothing TECHNICALLY wrong with the mouse, if you like the feel of it. If you're buying this because you have an old Diamondback, pay attention to how you use it...if you don't rely on that rubber ring for grip, you'll be fine with this. If you DO use that ring, look at the Mamba instead. If possible, try one out in a local store display, because Newegg made me pay shipping and charged a restock fee. Needless to say, a local store got my money for the Mamba, and I learned never to buy anything online that may be taste-subjective.READ FULL REVIEW
