I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

best review ever 11/10.

 

i'd honestly appreciate it if you were to trash talk a product (any product for that matter) you give some more detailed info than that, because for all we can make from this post it just doesnt like your desk.

 

you have the product, at least do some testing on it...

You're right.

Premise and conclusion are missing in his argumentation.

It's simply crap and leads to more fanboys and haters.

I should probably listen to this guy....

 

 

Buttons are well positioned, the back and forward buttons on the left side of the mouse feel like they came of one of those toys you win at fairs, the buttons make a satisfying clicky sound. Where the left side buttons are mounted feels like my butt-cheek (which is bad, I don't want a mouse that squishes every time I use it)

You make me interested in your oily review about your 600€ office salt that leaks chairs.

Which office chair are you talking about? :3

spinalis. they didnt weld the coil correctly so it started wearing out resulting in an ungodly squeak and the need for a fountain of oil to fix it...

 

thats €600 worth of chair as well, since the seat was wearing out i got a €200 replacement (no shitn €200 for a piece of wood with fake leather) and realised they made it worse quality than the original, resulting in a very unsatisfying seat on what is supposed to be ergonomic...

And then people say that racing chairs are crap. 

I'm very happy with my Maxnomic so far.

How long did it take until the coil started to wear out?

not sure, i had it for quite a while, but when i replaced the seat i didnt only find rust, i found that the coil wore itself out almost a milimeter...

the two pieces that were grinding together were pressed together with that much force no matter what i put between it'd just squeeze trough.

 

and dont worry, i'll add the building of my akracing to the end of it, that was quite the story as well

You might of got the old one the new one has a optical sensor

 

I mentioned it in another thread, this is exactly the problem, there is more to it than just soldering some ic in, the FW of the 3090 RAT3 isnt good and neither was the LED choice, not to mention that the assembly is kind of off as well so the light is rather unfocused in comparison.
