CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Green LED Model)

2 out of 5 eggs bad mouse / cool looks 01/09/2015

This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Green LED Model)

Pros: Very nice looks - bright green lighting - very "TRON-esque" feel to it

I would give it a 2 -1/2 out of 5 , because the keyboard is still working OK.

Cons: Only 2 weeks of use from XMAS time and the mouse has developed a very loud squeaking noise from the scroll wheel... Sounds like a grocery cart wheel ! - Which also makes any text being read jitter up & down , so the scroll wheel is obviously defective.

Now I didn't go into this unit with blinders on - I realize it is a very cheap KB/ Mouse combo unit - BUT- on the same hand, it is from CoolerMaster and I fully expected a little better product than 2 weeks worth of use before giving it up.

I am now reading all the other reviews, that weren't up at the time of my purchase, about the very same thing. I am seeing 4 other reviews/ complaints about scroll wheel squeaking between 2 wks.- 30 days. CoolerMaster & Newegg might want to get together on the matter ( recall , version 2.0 .etc.. )

Other Thoughts: *SIDE NOTE* - Newegg gave me a slight bit of hassle about this too. I did a live chat ( which I waiting 20 minutes on hold for ) so I could explain the issue to the rep.
-of which I was told 'Sorry, this is passed the 30 day return' - by 2 days !!!
- I had to do a short bit of arguing the matter back & forth several times to get the 'Managers' approval for an exchange . A little disappointed in Newegg's stance during the holidays about extended returns on purchases ( Like almost every store has )
I shouldn't have had to argue about this matter , especially concerning it was only less than $30.....

I will have to send it off first, then wait a week or 2 to get a new one back .

MSI R7970 TF 3GD5/OC BE Radeon HD 7970 3GB Twin Frozr OC Boost Edition 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: looks cool / appears to stay cool with low fan noise

Cons: Arrived DOA- took my original Visiontek 7970 out of system- put this MSI one in it's place = system refused to boot w/ error code of not recognizing video. Tried reseating it, nothing. put my original 7970 card back in = perfect boots right up
try this card in bottom slot- crossfire w/ good card up top = screen blackouts randomly and /or static lines buzzing up and down the monitor
Take new MSI card out of system = everything runs fine again w/ older 7970
Checked my motherboard Bios anyways. just to be sure ( it was up to date ) tried 2 different AMD drivers just for giggles --> I knew it was a bad card but I always try to go above and beyond testing for RMA's because it is such a hassle.

Other Thoughts: Extremely disappointed in MSI quality of testing on this one. I have rarely gotten a bad MSI product but was still very aggravating....
Now i am hearing rimours that the 7970 can Xfire w/ th newer r9 280x AMD cards - so maybe I'll try one of those in the near future.
BUT not sure I'll go with an MSI 280x or not after this...
