A4tech X7 G800


I had to laugh when I went to check out the X7 G800 gaming keyboard on A4tech's website - word for word, here is one of their selling points: '5-Star waterproof design - lets you keep your eyes on the game - eat, spill, sweat or cry over your keyboard...

Best Mouse


Red quick fire button slows down fire rates on a fully auto rifle.

Heavy , Good DPI , Smooth! I found this mouse to be very nice, helped with my flying in BF2

Smooth top gets dirty so it needs to be cleaned atleast once a week

Good so far


I just got the mouse yeasterday, and I got used to it quickly and eventually graduated from the defualt 600 DPI to being comfortable with 1200 DPI. Highly recommened mouse for the bucks.

The ability to change your DPI on the fly from 600-2000 DPI is excellent. Also, the 3x fire button may not seem satisfying at first because it shoots a little slow, but if youre taking a mid-long range shot with a rifle, hitting that button while...

None, except maybe that I myself have a little trouble getting to the first button. The design of the mouse seems to be for people who have their hand closer to the front
