I’ve owned the older version of this mouse for a few years now, purchased two back in 2011 to be exact. Due to this I was very excited when I heard Cooler Master was doing an overhaul and update. The large draw to this mouse for me originally was its unique shape. The shape reminded me significantly of an Ikari Laser, only smaller and shorter. It’s such a strange shape yet lovable for me. Considering the asking price of about $30 it’s very well built.
For some time now a number of you have been interested in an update to my desktop setup. I believe that it has been nearly two years now since I originally took the original pictures for the LTT Forums. The setup itself hasn’t changed too much since I feel I have it how I like it finally. However it’s just taken quite some time to keep it clean long enough to take pictures. Gertrude and Hamlet didn’t really make it any easier since they think I cleaned it up just for them.
So Prof and I had this deal where he would buy me this mouse if I did a review of it for his website, this was after a good bit of him trying to get me to buy the thing with my own money.
Not being a very big advocate of Razer mice or the PTE (Philips twin eye) sensor, I was quite hesitant of getting the Mamba TE at first. I’ve had a few razer mice over the years: the Diamondback original and one of the latter rehashes, a couple Deathadders, an original wireless Mamba, and an Imperator, and none of them really WOW’D me for a particularly long time. I was also never a huge fan of the smooth high gloss coatings they used for the grip area on their earlier mice.
The Logitech G600 is a mouse that I have had for some time in my collection. I originally bought the black on launch but had always wanted the white one since it was announced. Not too long ago I got the chance. Newegg had a ShellShocker for this mouse and a Logitech mousepad for $30. Even just for the mouse that is a steal. This deal has since popped up again so keep an eye out for it. Just consider it the mouse as you can’t call what comes with it a mousepad. I have paper that is thicker.
Recently Intel was running a deal on Newegg for their 730 SSDs. I decided to finally pick one up and put it in my HTPC/Server, ThePylon. I have wanted one of the Intel 730 series drives since they were announced as they are Intel’s first consumer SATA III SSD that they completely designed from the ground up.
Today I’m launching my website (finally). It is still in the very early stages of its inception. The idea is to have one place for my content and the content of other like minded people. This site will be simple and straightforward because quality content comes first, site and aesthetics second.
