Pros: Awesome mouse. 6400DPI is friggin sweat, love the way it fits in my hand, looks great, all buttons click very easily and are easy to click rapidly. The weight is perfect, and the rubber grips on the sides are a huge improvement.
Cons: Drivers suck, SUCK SUCK SUCK SUCK SUCK!!!!! Super slow and constantly crashing for no reason, when in wireless mode. The only reason I took off one egg is due to the terrible drivers, otherwise this mouse is perfect.
Overall Review: I only took off one egg due to the terrible drivers, otherwise this mouse is perfect. I didn't buy this mouse from Newegg, I got it straight from Razer as i have before and it was a huge mistake. I stupidly didn't check here before ordering from Razer, and I had to wait 3 weeks after paying for it to ship, as it went on back order as soon as I placed my order. I love this mouse, the packaging is amazing as always, and the mouse it's self seems to be very well made just like my deathadder. Just don't run the risk of ordering straight from Razer if you want your product in a timely matter. Also it's cheaper from here.
Great ram, if you own an intel
Pros: Awsome heat sinks
Cons: Will not work at advertised spec with AMD AM3 system. This ram will not operate at any tighter timing than 7-9-7-25-34-2t in my MSI-890FXA-GD70, with PhenomII x6 1100T. No matter how much voltage I gave it and no matter how I clocked the NB and HT-link. It wouldnt even run at 1333mhz at the advertised timings. System would not even POST. Updating to new bios caused ram to not want to POST at anything lower than 8-8-8-24-34-2T. I spent 3 days of adjusting all the timings I could with my board, which is more than u can read from the SPD of the chips.
Overall Review: Let me be clear that Gskill is a great company. I have purchased ram from them a few times and was never dissatisfied until now. I bought this ram, (two sets to make 8gig), as a last resort when building my system because the Mushkin ram I had picked out was for some reason no longer available at the time. I was enticed by the low latencies and read numerous reviews and forum posts that said this ram would work fine with AM3 setup so I bought it against my better judgement. New Egg is now selling the Mushkin ram I wanted again so I bought it and I am returning this ram. Makes no sense to me why New Egg stopped selling a product then suddenly is offering it again. I you are building an AMD AM3 system and u want to run 1600mhz with buy Mushkin. The Mushkin ram I bought runs at below advertised timings at 1600mhz with absolutely now trouble, and the Mushkin will run at *-*-*-*-1T or even *-*-*-*-0T if your MOBO supports 0T.
Paid for a name
Pros: Worked great for the almost 2 months I got to use it. Has an amazing UEFI, lots of serious overclocking options, and the QFan control is really nice.
Cons: Asus is no longer a quality manufacturer, they made a name for themselves over the years by making amazingly high quality products, now days you just pay for they're name on the product and completely useless broken drivers and bundled apps. My board worked perfectly fine for almost 2 months, not one single little issue, then I get home from a family gathering memorial weekend, turn on my pc and I'm greeted with an error at the end of POST saying that a usb device is over current and the system will shut down after 15 seconds. Tried multiple times to to get it to boot with no joy. Did some research and found other people with the same issue on asus boards with suggestions on how to get it working. Long story short, I ended up with the system stripped down to just the cpu and ram, not one single fan or device connected to the board and still with the same error. Time for an RMA, I send the board to asus and I get a letter back from them saying they 130 bucks to fix my board because I damaged the cpu pins and that isn't covered by the warranty. I then find reviews on here and elsewhere on the internet with the same complaints about asus repair centers claiming that the cpu pins were bent, super easy way for asus to get out of fixing the made in china quality products they make these days. I even read a review where a guy received his board back after asus claimed physical damge and the pch heatsink was pulled off and in a separate package. I have disputed their claims and I'm waiting to hear back from them. wish I would've seen the horrible reviews about these boards before hand, I would've gone with Gigabyte like I'm probably going to have to do now. If I'd read about these false damage complaints before I shipped my board out I would've taken a bunch of close up pics before hand.
Overall Review: Stay away from this board, and in my honest opinion all of asus' products. Don't get sucked in by all the hype and most likely fake positive reviews out there like I did. Go with MSI or Gigabyte.
DO NOT BUY THIS CARD!!!
Pros: Looks cool and comes with a sweet mic.
Cons: This card is junk. No ifs ands or buts about it. This thing isn't worth half what they are charging, my on-board audio produces better quality sound than this thing. They falsely advertise that it outputs 24bit, 96khz, but they conveniently leave out the part about it only outputting that sound format if you use the optical output. If you use the standard 3.5mm jacks like 99 percent of people do it is only capable of 24bit, 48khz which sounds like someone farting into a tin can. Plus it has a red LED that they fail to mention anywhere in the description. Makes an all blue LED lit case look like c**p.
Overall Review: I was so excited to get this card, mostly because of the mic and the scout mode, only to be instantly disappointed to find it produces lower quality sound than my on-board audio does. RMAed the same night I got it.
