Re: Getting new gaming mouse, advice???

I should preface this by saying I don't game at all... I really like my Corsair M65 Pro RGB. But I think you'll find that if 10 people respond, they'll have 10 different opinions. I would at least recommend a mouse with removable weights so you can customize the way the mouse feels to you. And I als...

Re: Pretty good mail day

Re: Pretty good mail day

With the Model F just be careful with the foam. If it falls apart on disassembly you'll need to fabricate a replacement since AFAIK there aren't a good sources of Model F parts like there are Model M parts. With F's I tend to take a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach. Model M's I'll take ap...

It came from ClickyKeyboards.com, expertly refurbished, with a complete screw mod. It' super clean, all the keys feel and sound amazing, I'm typ...
