Mionix NAOS 5000 7 Buttons USB Laser 5040 dpi Mouse

3 out of 5 eggs Longevity is questionable 11/07/2012

This review is from: Mionix NAOS 5000 7 Buttons USB Laser 5040 dpi Mouse

Pros: -Software does an excellent job at detecting games and is a sanity-saver when games like Kingdoms of Amallur do not let you set custom functions to R/L buttons
-Fits my large hands well

Cons: -Could use a few more buttons since the two below the mouse will likely be used for switching DPI or profiles, leaving you with four buttons and middle-click. For the price, it seems a little low.
-As a number of people have mentioned, it has started to double-click when I single-click. It is very annoying.
-There seems to be some slight acceleration built into the mouse's firmware. I could be wrong, but a quick Google search seems to support my suspicions. Whatever the case, I find that I'm a bit sloppy navigating menus and hotbars when using this mouse.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't say that I regret my purchase, but the double-click issue is enough to make me avoid Mionix in the future. It's a nice mouse but there are better out there and many of them cost less.

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 SB1090 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz USB Interface Sound Card

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The unit is attractive and the volume/mute knob works well and a very convenient.

Cons: When something as standard as general SVM (smart volume management) is absent, things have clearly gone very wrong. Anyone who has played with a standard X-Fi will be appalled at how many features are missing (including existence of multiple modes). That my computer's built-in chip has software that offers more functionality than the X-Fi 5.1 speaks volumes about how bare-bones the piece of hardware is.

I am not sure who this product is made for, but unless Creative updates the 5.1's software to match the rest of the X-Fi line, I would strongly recomend looking for a different sound solution.

A huge dissapointment and money very poorly spent.

5 out of 5 eggs Works Wonders - Frightens Builders 09/08/2007

This review is from: COOLER MASTER GeminII RR-CCH-ANU2-GP CPU+ Board Cooler

Pros: My current condo swelters and I overclock by default so my temps are nothing to boast about, however, that that my e6400 is at 3.2 and perfectly happy speaks highly of the GeminII.

Cons: Big. Scary.

Other Thoughts: Outside of pointing out that this h/s does its job, I'm largely writing to reasure 775 users that your motherboard will hold. I almost broke down and fashioned an ad-hoc back plate but lo and behold, everything works just fine without a back plate. Still, Cooler Master should include a soft-voiced tech with each package reassure you through the installation. :)
