A4Tech ZL5A Bloody Ultra Gaming Gear Wired 9-Button Gaming Mouse - Intelligent 4 Cores / Weapon Mode Indicator Light / 160K Built-in Memory / Adjustable 100 - 8200 CPI
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The build quality is very good and feels solid but not quite as heavy feeling like other gaming mice.
Nice threaded cable
Cool rocker switch on side

Cons: I can't use the mouse with a USB Hub, I did for a short while but eventually the hub doesn't even recognize the mouse and when I boot up the computer with the mouse plugged in, the computer has some sort of lag. The mouse sort of works when plugged directly into the computer but that lag is very annoying. I try playing a movie and I get a noticeable FPS drop reminiscent of the freezes I get occasionally during use except on a much shorter time than say 5-10 seconds.

While I am playing games the mouse freezes occasionally when I had the bloody5 software installed. Uninstalling that software seemed to remove the freezes but the computer slows down like you are using your computer in slow motion with the FPS drop.

You also can't fine control the lights. The lights on the mouse pulsates and that may be causing the issues. If you want to turn off the lights you can't do so and if you want to use different colors than the stock ones, you also cannot do so. The pulsating lights go on the back under your palm with their bloody logo and some zig zag pattern under the palm.

Other Thoughts: No adjustable weight if you are into that.
Mouse Kinda fits hand but not as good as other gaming mice.

Hardware wise the mouse is great. Bundled with glitchy drivers? meh I don't think the price or drivers fits this mouse. Until the drivers are improved and I can use the mouse with the USB hub, I'll just use other mice out there.

It may be my potato computer but why would I use hardware that takes up more resources than it needs? Instead of lag in my mouse I now get lag on the display.

I'm returning this even if I have to pay feeds to restock/ship. This mouse is made for gaming and this would hinder rather than improve your performance by freezing your computer and slowing your framerate.

Klipsch Reference S4i Premium In-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphones with Microphone (Black)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent Sound, Mediocre Build 10/13/2013

This review is from: Klipsch Reference S4i Premium In-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphones with Microphone (Black)

Pros: There headphones are one of the nicest earphones I have worn from Klipsch, from having owned older pairs of headphones these felt nice and fit into the ear. The older pair had a heavy wire that made the headphones feel like they were constantly being pulled out, but this is not the case for these headphones. Klipsch seems to be constantly changing their wire design and these wires are a thin clear design. Being thin wires, these tangle easily, which is solved in their newer headphones which feature a ribbon flat cable.

The headphones don't muddle the sound with too much of anything and have a decent balance. The headphones fit into your ear nicely and block out a decent amount of sound, not the most but enough to enjoy your music comfortably without having to turn up the sound to max. There is also a mic built into the remote which is good at picking up your voice even if the remote isn't clipped to your shirt.

The headphones also come with a metal tin carrying case, this might also be a con as the tin can't really fit the headphones with the weird foam insert. The tin is also a bit bulky so it isn't very feasible to carry it around in your pocket. The newer S4i (II) has a soft carrying case rather than a tin.

Cons: I had to knock 1 egg of for the build quality. The rubber used in the headphones wear down and split apart where they are closed together. These do not affect the actual performance of the headphones (as far as I know). The little piece that connects the 2 earbud wires is also made of rubber so it is typically the first rubber piece to break so its a contributing factor to the tangling that can occur in daily use.

Other Thoughts: I also have an android phone (LG P990 2x) so the center button works for it. The volume buttons don't work but they have an app that allowed for control of the volume by pressing and holding down the center button. Also note, the difference between these headphones and the normal S4i are only color as far as I know/have read.

Although the rubber can wear off, the headphones themselves are nicely built and I am typically careful with my headphones so for those guys who are rough with their headphones they might not last as long, but fear not. For Klipsch gives a generous 2 year warranty with their headphones. I have already had a replacement set mailed (with free shipping) and received the newer S4i (II). Normally I wouldn't consider warranties in product purchasing but Klipsch gives a 2 year warranty making even a full price a good deal when it comes to headphones. I always see friends replacing headphones every few months and by buying these you have ensured fantastic sound for 2+ years.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

4 out of 5 eggs Kevin M 08/21/2012

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: -Pretty cheap for $30
-Good performance
-Moves lots of air with 2 2000RPM fans
-Included fan has decent performance and is quiet, NOT some low end budget fan that's loud and doesn't move any air

Cons: -Come with 1 fan
-Hard to get the mounting bracket through the heat sink
-Unmounting the heat sink is a pain, don't tighten the screws too much onto the lug nuts as when you try to unscrew the screws, you'll be unscrewing the nuts in the back and not the screw from the lug nuts. Only 4 eggs for that reason

Other Thoughts: Had hyper 212+ and this has a more "direct" contact with the cpu, the heat pipes are more grounded down and have more contact with the CPU. diagram:
212 EVO
Key: X = aluminum, | = Copper pipe ***
This is a rough representation between the differences between the + and EVO, as you can see there is less aluminum contact and basically the middle part is all copper contact with no aluminum contacting between the pipes

***this is from memory and may not be accurate
