I got it for 28 dollars as an open box special. That's quite awesome. Although maybe it's not the best mouse possible, used mice of the same model are going for 40 on ebay Unfortunately, it sold out in about 3 hours, so although I was going to blog about it I was too late.
Secondly I've been pestered more than ever to spendspendspend. Also grandma asked what I did with my 100 dollar birthday check. Answer is nothing
Thirdly, I have a large bestbuy giftcard that has yet to be spent But everything there is overpriced >.> It's making me lean towards a blackwidow keyboard because they carry it. So let me break down everything...
Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236112&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL052011&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL052011-_-EMC-052011-Latest-_-LCDMonitors-_-24236112-L0D (After all rebates it's 160 USD)
I would like a larger monitor than 19", ideally 1080p. I got my mom a 22" from Costco, but she wanted something from a retail store, so it cost more than it should have. A 24" that is 160 or less would be great. Although I might go for a 22" as well. For those of you who have upgraded, how does a 19" compare to a 22" compare to a 24"?
Keyboard: This is tough. I have never used a mechanical keyboard, and no store within 35 miles carries them. So deciding on the type of switch is tough. =/ Can't decide on what I want exactly. What have you guys observed in terms of resistance and loudness? I've read various forum posts, but it's hard to liken things. Looking at blackwidow (because of bestbuy value) blackwidow ultimate (depending on what exactly is different apart from cosmetics?), 6gv2, or any of the das keyboard stuff (although it's expensive)
If none of this pans out I'll just get a dt-35 ^^ Thoughts?
Earbuds: I already have a failheadset, need earbuds. Figure after most all of hte feedback was positive I'd get a steelseries headset. Question: does the mic detach? I can't seem to find that. Now the decision is between those two. Mic, or no mic. Does anyone have it. how is the mic quality? Does it detach?
Mousepad: Qck Standard? Good mousepad? Cheap? Any objections?
I think I'll order all (if any) steelseries stuff at once to minimize shipping.
