Would be an excellent mouse if it didn't have a double click flaw.4/13/2015 6:18:40 PM

Pros: Very comfortable and accurate mouse. Works well when it works.

Cons: There's definitely some flaw in the line that causes the mouse to double click when you only click once. Either the button is wearing out or getting dirty or something. Either way, I've gone through 2 RMAs and 3 Deathadders and all started showing the same double click issue after about a month of use. Needless to say I'm personally done with Razer products. If it didn't have this one flaw, I would be a 5 star perfect mouse for me.

Overall Review: If you google "Razer double click issue" you'll see it's widespread AND it's not just limited to Deathadder mice.

Should have went with my initial choice and bought this first.11/12/2013 7:28:58 PM

Pros: Sound is crystal clear and amazing. I use these along with my B&W P5 headphones and everything sounds amazing. The card itself looks cool and well shielded and the installation is as about as easy as any other PCIe card. The ACM is hefty and well built. Very smooth volume button and 4 inputs, two 3.5 mm jacks and two 1/4 inch jacks for headphones and microphones respectively. Headphones are connected through the ACM and it sounds amazing.

Cons: Nothing I can see yet.

Overall Review: I initially had forgone a Soundblaster due to everyone saying the driver software was horrible. So I got a Xonar DGX at everyone's suggestion. A decent card in it's own right, but it left me wanting more and I found it also suffered from the less than ideal driver issue as well. Having seen what Xonar had to offer, I decided it was time to see what Soundblaster had to offer and now I wish I had gone with them to begin with. If people consider the driver software bad, then there is no way it's worse than the Xonar software. As soon as I installed it, I could hear a difference in quality over the Xonar as well. The Xonar served it's purpose but the Sound Blaster was what I was looking for all along.

Excellent Ram4/24/2013 7:20:56 AM

Pros: No problems installing or booting. Everything was detected normally and things are a running smoothly for about 2 weeks now. Look well built and look pretty cool with the red heat dissipaters. Even comes with a cool case sticker.

Cons: None I can think of at the moment.

Overall Review: In order for this RAM to run at the maximum advertised clock speed, I had to go into the bios settings and manually set it to 1600mhz. This is most likely an issue with my motherboard than the RAM since I had to do this same procedure with the other pair of RAM I purchased that had the same specs as these G.SKill. It's just something to consider if you notice your RAM not running at the advertised clock speed.

Decent sound with some noticable flaws1/31/2013 5:56:14 PM

Pros: Cheap for the decent sound quality it provides. PCIe

Cons: Front panel jack has horrible volume. I have to pump the headphone amp to max and turn the volume on my computer completely up to get any decent sound. I wrote their tech support about this issue and they pretty much told me to reinstall the drivers, giving me a broken link to the driver download. Tried reinstalling the drivers and it didn't fix the problem. That brings me to the next con, the drivers suck. If you get this card, or any Xonar card, completely skip the Asus drivers and get the UniXonar drivers that a 3rd party made. Much better and stable than Asus' drivers, which are also pain to install btw. Also, at random times I'll get noise coming from the card. Like random static noise. The only way to stop it is to restart my computer. I know it's a problem with the card because I don't get the sound from my integrated sound and it goes away when I disable the card from my device manager. Some kinda interference problem going on with it. All in all, I would not buy this card again, nor would I recommend it.

Does it's job well. Bad layout.12/31/2012 8:08:35 AM

Pros: Very good at what you need if you're looking for a good H77 mobo and don't plan on overclocking. Nice UEFI and as simple to install as any other ATX mobo. As far as pros, can't really ask for anything more.

Cons: Layout of the expansion slots is horrible. If you're installing a double wide video card in the PCIe 3.0 16x slot, you can say bye bye to one of the 1x slots. That leaves you with only the other 3.0 1x slot and the other 2.0 16x slot. And 3 fairly useless PCI slots. They could have layed it out so that you lose the PCI slot, or even better, put the 3.0 16x slot at the very end so that you use the unused extra slot that most cases have. So in the end, you really have only 2 usable PCIe slots after installing a video card. Not really good unless you need a 56k modem or an old sound card for some reason.

Very good case12/11/2012 3:23:08 PM

Pros: Big and spacy. Lots of airflow and mounting spaces for case fans. Overall quality build.

Cons: Firewire port on front is useless. For me it's an eyesore having not only an obsolete port, but one that isn't even functioning.

Overall Review: Corsair has great customer service as well. Had some issues with this case and they helped me solve them in a quick and professional manner. This case is a very good choice for a mid-budget build.

Best value DVD burner you'll ever find12/6/2012 6:25:04 AM

Pros: It's dirt cheap and works well. Couldn't ask for anything more. It's black colored so it blends in well with my case. Keep this in mind if you want your rig to look nice.

Cons: Nothing as of yet.

Works great.12/6/2012 6:22:24 AM

Pros: Easy redemption process. Just input the code on the card at EVGA's website and they give you a Steam key. Plug it into Steam and viola! Download and enjoy.

Cons: No hard disk, but I guess beggars can't be choosers when it comes to a free $60 game.

Overall Review: Very fun game. And runs amazingly well on my GTX 670.

Convoluted process, but it works in the end12/6/2012 6:19:34 AM

Pros: It's a $60 game for free.

Cons: The process is pretty convoluted. First you go to the EVGA site and redeem the code on the card. Then they give you a checkout code for the Ubishop website. This site is buggy as hell. It'll take some jostling around before you manage to add Assassins Creed III to your cart (not the deluxe edition). Once you manage that, you check out and use the code supplied from EVGA which drops your price to $0.00. Wait longer than usual for a confirmation email which contains your key and link to the downloader. Run the downloader and it will download the game; about 15GB or so. Run the downloader, install the game, also installs Uplay along with it. Run Uplay (It's a game client like Steam), login, then run the game through it. It'll ask for your key. Input it and then enjoy the game. Oh and you have to run the game through the Uplay program every time.

Overall Review: Uplay sucks. It's like a bloated Steam for only Ubisoft games. It's a small price to pay for a free game though. They could have saved us a ton of time though and just given us a Steam key, like they did with Borderlands.

Fast and powerful CPU12/2/2012 3:40:40 PM

Pros: If you're not into overclocking, this CPU is practically identical to the K version but ever so slightly cheaper. It's fast and takes everything I throw at it in stride. As the most powerful i5 currently available, this is the best for high end gaming rigs. i7 aren't needed for gaming since HT doesn't improve gaming performance significantly. If you're buying this version instead of the K variant, then I assume you're not overclocking which means that the stock cooler is sufficient enough. So you can save a bit on not having to buy a after market cooler.

Cons: Kinda pricey, but worth it.

Well build and quality PSU11/28/2012 7:49:33 PM

Pros: No problems installing and powered right up. Tons of connectors. Built solid and a hefty weight. Plenty of power for a mid range build.

Cons: Not modular, but I can't really hold this against it since I knew this before I bought it. Although I hope modularity becomes the standard in the future.

Overall Review: Corsair was a name that came up a lot in my PSU research. So I jumped on this one when I saw a good deal on Newegg. So far it hasn't disappointed in anyway.

Saying this thing is fast is an understatement11/28/2012 7:41:31 PM

Pros: If you've never used an SSD before, this thing will knock your socks off. On a clean Windows install, boot time from button press to login screen is around 20 seconds. Shut down is 3 seconds.

Cons: I can no longer use the time my computer takes to boot to go get a coffee.

Overall Review: When I researched the best SSD to get, Intel seemed to pop up as the one of the best brands in quality and performance. So far, everything said has been true. The only thing that remains to be seen is it's longevity, but from what I read this hasn't been a problem for Intel SSD.

Powered up and works without a problem11/28/2012 7:33:00 PM

Pros: Hooked up easily, Windows recognized and formatted without any problems. Huge capacity; already transferred all my music with tons more space to spare.

Cons: None as of yet.

Overall Review: I paid a little more for this drive because the other cheaper ones had abysmal reviews. I've used WD HDD in the past and never had a problem.
