This review is from: Rosewill RM-7900 2.4GHz Wireless Mouse
Pros: It's a nice feeling mouse, great in the hand and the materials are nice with the anti finger print material. Buttons feel great, and the clicks feel crisp. Only reason I'm giving it two eggs is because of these reasons, the -3 is below. BEWARE.
Cons: The USB dongle broke inside my new mobo's USB port, I had to use pliers and patience to remove it. It nearly tore apart my mother board. The USB head (metal bit) stayed within the port. I could have shorted or fried the board, if not ruin all components, thank the universe it wasn't my own rig but a computer I built for my parents, not that makes it better. Luckily the port still works and I don't have to RMA that too. It's cheap and I guess you get what you pay for. Very dissapointed with Rosewill quality. I had a 750W PSU from them and it was garbage as well, with over heating issues and noise, but that's neither here nor there. After I get an exchange, this will be the last Rosewill product I will purchase. I'm sure there are people who attest to their quality but from my experience, it's absent. Stick to Logitech or other products.
Other Thoughts: It worked for a total of 10 seconds, at which I couldn't get the USB dongle out.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I can play Far Cry 4 and BF4 on absolute max, and boy does this card make games look pretty. I also wanted to write this review after GTA V for PC being released and I have been able to run the game on max everything @ 60 fps at 1080p. It makes GTA look so beautiful, I love this card it handles everything I've thrown at it with relative ease.
Cons: It has a newer more custom cooler on it, its still pretty loud when you get it up to 100%, but I knew what I was getting myself into. I'm not a big fan of the colors but that's not enough to doc an egg, I'll probably paint the shroud to match my case in a year or two when the warranty runs out. I've had the card for 2 months now and still haven't received my rebate which is disappointing considering this is my first experience with Sapphire. Also, this card runs HOT, so don't be frightened by the 65-70c temps. I used MSI afterburner and set a custom fan curve, so that the fans are at 100% at 65c to preserve it, I'm being paranoid and careful.
It's a full 4gb of VRAM! yay!
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an MSI R9 270x 2 gb card and I'm glad I did, it was worth the money and has changed my gaming experience on the PC. I probably will buy another one of these card in the future maybe in a few years when my system is dated and upgrade my PSU too. If you're worried about power for this card, I've seen some specs of people running it with a 650w so you could get by maybe, it is a power hungry card (don't cry about the extra 25 cents a month for electricity, I'm talking to you nvidia fan boys). All in all, I love this card, I would recommend it to a friend and would buy it again, I'm also glad I got it on sale. If you can get a better deal on a 970 get that just for the sake of noise level and power consumption but I'm an AMD lover and probably will be for a while.
For those curious of my set up:
FX-8320 OC'd to a mild 4.0 ghz
16gb GSkillz ARIES 1866 mhz RAM
Sapphire R9 290x Tri-X
EVGA 750w G2 PSU
Fractal Design R4 case w/ 5 fans
120gb Samsung EVO SSD
1.5 TB WD 5200rpm HDD
1.0 TB WD 7200rpm HDD
Pros: It's a great hard drive. I have all my games on it. Works great and does it's job. 7200 rpm is ideal for gaming if you're not going to use an SSD.
Other Thoughts: When I hooked it up my computer did not recognize it but after using the device setting through control panel in windows I was able to find it and get it working. There are many guides online to fix this or resolve the issue.READ FULL REVIEW
