CM Storm Recon - Ambidextrous 4000 DPI Gaming Mouse with Multicolor LEDs for Left and Right Handed Users
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good weight. good sensitivity. Easy sensitivity adjustment. Good DPI adjustment button location.

Cons: Side buttons need to have a little more resistance, its too easy to push them without even feeling it.

Other Thoughts: CM needs to design this mouse in a longer version. my hand is average length, and the palm of my hand almost doesnt touch the mouse without my fingers hanging over the front. CM should make a long board model of each mouse they have and see what the consumer likes. I will bet longer versions of mice would sell better.

Western Digital My Passport Essential 500GB Portable Hard Drive (Black)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Small

Cons: They have changed the software "Smart Ware" for this item every few months. When they do that, it no longer works. then you have to go and find the new software and install it, which is never as easy as it is supposed to be.
This item is the most updated item i have in my computer.
Everytime i want to do a simple backup, it takes about an hour to find, install software, then backup my computer.
CDs take less time.
Today, i tried it and it doesnt work. So, i go to their web site to see if there is any new software, and wouldnt ya know it, their support website is down.

Other Thoughts: The "update software" button is grayed out, so that doesnt work.
Its supposed to be "Plug and Play", but i get "plug and nothing" too often.
It worked fine for the first two months, then it has been nothing but finding updates evertime i want to do an update, or trying to figure out why it wont just "auto start" like its supposed to.
Maybe someday when they get their software situation figured out ill try it again, but untill then,
No thanks.

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional 70SB088600002 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Initially, i thought it was a good card. Sound quality is good

Cons: From the start, drivers were a big issue. Then, after installing it, i found out that the cable that connects to the front panel audio is bogus. They have wired it so that it really only works with their own front panels instead of industry standard. So, you wont be able to use the front panel audio on your PC Case. Next, there doesnt seem to be a fix for a driver issue between Team Speak 3 and these audio cards. This alone is not a deal breaker issue, unless, you consider that the whole Creative community has been asking for fixes to problems like this for a long, long time. Creative is silent on any help. you are on your own.

Other Thoughts: Google "Creative X-fi problems" and see what you come up with, and how long ppl have been posting about Creative problems.
