Awesome product! Would purchase again, smells amazing. It feels great to rub on my skin, almost healing, and has a myriad of other uses. You can tell this is a quality item.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite mice, October 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: +Great tracking +Cable won't fray +Soft touch finish.
Cons: -Finger remnants.

Review on:
Zowie Gear Evo EC2
Purchase Date: August 2012
Purchase Price: $59.99

Can't speak for the longevity of this item, as I have only owned it a short time. However it tracks great and doesn't appear like it will run into issues like some of my other mice. Since the cable is not braided, it cannot fray, yet the finish is unlike traditional wires, it still seems high quality: thick, yet flexible. The mouse is driverless, so no twiddling with drivers. Lastly there is no thumbrest held on with goop that will eventually fall off.

In term of performance it tracks incredibly smooth. The shape is comfortable for those with smaller hands. If you consider yourself to have large hands, opt for the EC1 eVo. Overall seems well worth the price.

Update:
I have gotten used to the mouse 4+5 placement and no longer see it as a con. But I have noticed if i put the mouse under intense light I can see the remnants of where my fingers reside on the left and right click buttons. Docked .5 stars. Now 4/5.

Update 2:
Small amount of optical light bleeds through the scroll wheel
Scroll wheel lighting is not 100% uniform
Docked another .5 stars 3.5/5

Update 3:
I have since purchased the glossy white version. This finish does not have finger residue, and less optical light seems to bleed through. I think this may be my favorite mouse. I have tried three other mice (deathadder 2013 included), and decided to come back this one in white.

I think this is my favorite mouse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Microphone Quality, October 14, 2012

Chimaera Wireless Gaming Headset
Purchase Date: October 2012
Purchase Price: $103.76

The sound quality is about on par with other mid range headsets. The microphone quality is absolutely horrendous. For a PC gamer, this is a no-no. For a console gamer, the voice transmission is not on the same quality standards as PC, so it may suffice. However, I do imagine this is still less than satisfactory for even most console gamers.

I had to send it back. Unacceptable.
2.5/5

1.0 out of 5 stars Ironclad sheds like a snake., August 18, 2012
I had the Ironclad and after about two days the mousepad surface began to peel. Completely unacceptable. Sad because I liked the mousepad and It felt pretty nice. I returned it and got a Razer Scarab Expert Hard Gaming Mouse Mat. I have only had this for about three days and no peeling yet...

Update--
Scarab Is still running strong. Months later. If your in the market for a hard mouse-mat, this is much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the money, April 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For paying such a small amount of money for a frame, I was quite worried that it would be junk. The 11x17 (I haven't tried larger sizes) frame looks very attractive and comes with a nice piece of glass. Installing posters/photos into the frame is effortless, when finished it looks like a quality item. I will be purchasing more of these in the future. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst game of all time, April 23, 2012
This review is from: Brink - PC (Video Game)
I pre-ordered BRINK for some odd reason. Upon release, I launched the game and after about 25 minutes of wanting to like it, I shut it down and never played again. BRINK is so terrible I have nightmares about it. I would love to go into depth about how terrible BRINK is, but just thinking about this game makes me want to practice self harm.

I normally give every game a fair shot and at least play them through once, but not with BRINK, take my word and let this game go die in a ditch.

5.0 out of 5 stars I use it to store electronics, April 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Quite attractive looking, and also seems quite durable. If you are planning on using this for heavy duty tasks such as carrying bricks then perhaps you should look elsewhere. Otherwise for around the home storage it is functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty fun calendar, April 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This calender follows a weekly format, there are no zombie photos in this calendar, but the formatting is full color, so it still looks attractive. The format is as follows per week:
M- Zombie Fact
T- Zombie multiple choice question
W- Zombie survival tip
R- Zombie quote
F- Zombie true and false
Weekend- Weekend activity

Overall a lovely calendar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speakers for the minimalist, April 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are systems with more bass, punch and etc, but that is not what this system is aimed at. These speakers produce a rich, high quality, extremely accurate sound while also doing a great job at reducing clutter. Wires wrap up under the speakers, and since they connect via USB you don't end up with multiple volume adjustments (one on the speakers and one in Windows/OSX). The volume slider becomes unified and the installation is not at all intrusive.

Since the sound is nice and pure, listening to music for hours is affable without getting annoying.
Gaming is also a positive experience. The speakers do a great job at reproducing directional effects, and sounds/effects come through clear and rich (I am a gaming enthusiast and I can't complain).

A major plus is that these speakers have an on-board DAC, and are powered. This means no external amp or DAC is needed to obtain high quality sound.

Some people mention that the right speaker runs hot, this is true, but it is not blistering hot as implied. Unless for some odd reason you like to rest your hand on your speaker tops, it goes unnoticed. It's not as if the speaker is radiating heat. They only reason this should ever be a concern is if you plan on using these speakers outside in 100F temperatures.

Also as a side note: in MAC OSX, when the computer has been shutdown the speakers automatically power off. In Windows they need to be manually powered off with the remote or on the switch. I do wish that B&W had implemented this in WinOS

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty standard cutters, April 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These ESD cutters preform exactly as I expected, with a nice ESD feel. It cuts AWG 18 and under wire with no hesitation and I would imagine it can clip wires at a higher gauge but I have not tried and do not intend to. For their intended use, they work flawlessly. Great product that also looks visually appeasing.
