This review is from: Logitech G403 Prodigy Wired Optical Gaming Mouse
Pros: -Great shape - similar to the DeathAdder, but more natural. The angle of the DeathAdder put more weight on the right side of my palm and wrist which didn't affect my aiming, but did make long sessions uncomfortable. This is the most natural mouse that I've held.
-Great sensor - I can't tell a difference in sensor accuracy between this, the DeathAdder or the EC2-A as all of them are excellent.
-Buttons are light, and require less force to depress.
-Thumb buttons are higher than the DeathAdder, reducing accidental clicks while not being in an awkward position like the Zowie EC2-A
-Much better scroll wheel and side buttons than EC2-A.
-Looks sleek and mature.
Cons: Thick cable which is stiff - this may seem nit picky, but I game on a hard gaming mouspad that requires very little force input to move the mouse. When the cable is bent in a smaller radius, I can feel it at the mouse. I would prefer a thinner, more flexible cable that exerts less force on the mouse when bent.
Other Thoughts: This is the perfect mouse shape for me. I used the Razer DeathAdder for a long time, and played well with it. I decided to try the Zowie EC2-A because it looked like a more comfortable shape and had good reviews. For me, this mouse is more comfortable than the DeathAdder and the EC2-A and has much better buttons than the Zowie. This mouse will be my daily driver for a long time.
I use a grip in-between claw and palm and have medium sized hands.
This review is from: Phanteks PH-F120XP_BK 120mm PWM Case Fan
Pros: -Move a good amount of air
Cons: I ordered 3 of these fans to mount on a radiator. I also ordered 1 of the Phanteks PH-F120MP fans to serve as a comparison. I have a lot of radiators, and therefore a lot of radiator fans. I figured I would equip my case with the fans that performed the best. 100% of the fans I tested (2) of this model had play in the bearings. When I powered the fans on, I noticed they were noticeably louder that the PH-F120MP fan, which had no play in the bearing. It was louder despite the fact that it was spinning at a lower RPM (1500 vs 1800). I RMA'd these fans and bought all PH-F120MP's instead.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this fan unless they fix the bearings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Aesthetically, this monitor is gorgeous. The design is understated, and expensive-looking - there isn't any in your face "GAMING x1Z FatA|ity" branding or crazy colors that clash with my build.
-Viewing angles are a non issue - this monitor looks the same from any angle that I'd ever look at it from.
-No QC defects whatsoever
-Picture quality and colors are outstanding - they compete with IPS. I did need to reduce the gamma and tweak the color a bit though. Now the color is great!
-144hz, GSYNC and 1ms response time.
Cons: I have no cons with this monitor.
Other Thoughts: I've owned a Korean QNIX IPS monitor overclocked to 97hz for the last two years. Before buying this Dell, I purchased the Acer XB270 HU bprz from Newegg. The Acer monitor had massive QC issues with back light bleed, and it was more expensive. If I were to rate them, it would be: Dell > Qnix >> Acer. I will not accept panel defects on a $110 monitor, let alone a $500 one. Like I said earlier, the picture quality on this monitor rivals IPS. Don't think you need to settle for back-light bleed to enjoy 1440p 144hz gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
