Corsair Raptor M30 USB Wired Gaming Mouse

5 out of 5 eggs Comfortable Mouse 08/04/2013

This review is from: Corsair Raptor M30 USB Wired Gaming Mouse

Pros: Comfortably fits my hand.
The side buttons are easy to reach, something I've found to not be the case with a number of mice.
Adjustable dpi.
Precision mouse.
I like the look and color scheme (The red lighting matches my K70)
Like most Corsair products the cable is fabric sheathed for added durability.
Comes with replacement glide pads.
Wide and “grippy” scroll wheel is far preferable to what most mice come with.

Cons: Unlike some of the other Corsair mice you can only choose the preset dpi settings.

Other Thoughts: The mouse looks a little odd honestly, but I am very happy with how it fits my hand. It's hard to find a mouse that stays comfortable after a couple hours of continual use.

5 out of 5 eggs Quality Gaming Board 08/04/2013

This review is from: Corsair Raptor K50 Gaming Keyboard (CH-9000007-NA)

Pros: Robust feel to the keys. Very clear to the finger whether it is pressed or not.
3 profiles for the 18 macro keys that can be quickly switched via hotkeys.
Beautiful backlighting.
Good weight ensures the keyboard won't slide about the desk.
USB pass-through.
Textured volume knob is far superior to your standard up and down keys.
Very comfortable detachable wrist support.
4 adjustment legs instead of just 2.
Windows lock key is a great option for gamers.
The membrane keys honestly compare pretty well to the cherry switches on my mechanical board.
Lots of options for customization in the software available for download from Corsair.

Cons: If you really want to fine tune the color of the backlighting you have to use the sliders for Red, Green, and Blue. The color palette is a little clunky.

Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard for the macro keys and, lets be honest, really cool backlight feature. I also own a Corsair K70 and was really worried the fact that it wasn't mechanical was going to ruin it for me, and I was going to end up making a birthday present of it to my brother. I have been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the membrane keys used in the construction of the K50. After only 2 hours of use it already felt completely natural to me and gave me no issues in my games.

Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Backlight has 3 brightness levels - from definitely on to quite bright.
Key response is phenomenal.
The textured and contoured keys do not interfere with typing.
Very comfortable. I use the included wrist support.
Has 4 "legs" that you can pop out or leave in that allow you to adjust the height/slope to your preference.
Included bios switch allows the keyboard to fully function with any computer new or old.
You can program which keys you specifically want backlit.
Big textured volume knob.
USB Pass-through.

Cons: Don't buy a mechanical keyboard if you don't like the clacking of keys.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love the k70. It feels great under my hands and performs amazingly well. One side note I would like to mention. I replaced my qwer keys with the contoured 1256 keys for playing League of Legends. Until I became accustomed to the unique feel of them I would find myself putting my fingers on the row above or below the qwer keys because they felt "odd". After a little bit of adjustment I haven't accidentally ulted when I meant to "e" once.
Also being able to pick which keys are backlit is awesome.
