Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 2 things I forgot to mention in my previous review

- In the description "Polytetrafluoroethylene feet" are mentioned. Not even sure what on earth that is, but it's as if I don't have to worry about the feet at all. Previous mice I had get adhesives of some ilk, but these move great and don't seem like they'll wear any time soon (even after over a year's use).

-This will be a bit irksome/gross: Another thing I was looking for in a mouse is one I can keep clean. I don't know why but I sweat very easily which doesn't really help with mice, esp. while gaming. But with the G9x this has never been issue, the grip, mouse buttons, everything remains in great condition while you game.

Cons: I don't know. The cost? But you really do get what you pay for.

As I said before I was thinking of getting one for my work machine, but it seems OS X is not officially supported.

Other Thoughts: Wondering if this works on a Mac, looks like there's some other software one can use to set your own macros for whichever buttons aren't recognized out the box. However, I have no idea how the profiles and DPI settings would be managed, if those could even be adjusted on the fly...

Pros: - Can change the form for either a width-wise (think between thumb and pink) or length-wise (think palm to fingertips) shell. In some games I used to find my hand holding onto the mouse in a weird way or losing grip, no longer a problem with this mouse. I thought I needed a longer mouse, but the wide shell is exactly what I needed.

- Variable weights should give you the weight you want. Play around with them until you get to the point you set it and forget it.

- Variable DPI, you can have up to 5 profiles with 3 DPI settings each, the latter can be changed with buttons behind the left click. Excellent for switching between games (from mmorpg to RTS to DPS)/tasks, or even within a game, though I haven't needed that. Other profiles can be swapped via a button on the bottomside of the mouse, no need for going into SetPoint to re-configure.

- The cable is great, I'm not sure what it's made of it's like a rope. It's not a problem moving it around at all.

- Laser. The precision is a great jump for me coming from optical mice.

Cons: Can't think of any. I don't even have to worry about cleaning this thing like I would other mice, it's a very well-made mouse.

Other Thoughts: A friend introduced me to the whole idea of gaming mice and that I was missing out on things. Disable the OS' mouse speed/acceleration if possible and use Logitech's settings. If not for the price tag I would use this product at work, too. This mouse has been nothing short of awesome. Good job, Logitech.

Rosewill HDMI A Male to DVI-D (24+1) Female Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does what it's supposed to.

Cons: Can't think of a con. This isn't a con rather the closest thing to one. DVI-D cables/adapters all generally screw into something. HDMI ends do not. Should've been obvious but it's kinda weird plugging and screwing in the DVI-D end into this adapter and having it kinda just hanging out the t.v. or whatever other device you're going to use. It doesn't seem to be a cause for concern at all whatsoever, just a bit irksome at first as I didn't think about it.

Other Thoughts: Using this to output an old Dell with a 6800 gt to a 50" Plasma HDTV a store handed me down. Initially I was using S-Video which was... garbage. Then VGA which at least allowed me to choose resolution. Finally being able to use digital format comes out brilliant.

For audio I just use a 3.5mm cable from the Dell's speaker out to the t.v.'s audio in, the latter is there specifically for the HDMI ports that are used through DVI (they're labeled on the tv as dvi/hdmi). I'm not sure about this, you may not get the full quality as say you would from an ATI card w/ HDMI, but it's been doing more than an adequate job for me what with an optical out on the t.v. going straight to an a/v receiver. The sound's been great actually.
