Razer Firefly



Buy the Razer Firefly on Amazon for $49.99; http://amzn.to/1XpdXDr

Off the rip I want to mention it looks great with the lights off at night. I have a white desk so the lights do not really light up the desk well in the day or with the lights on. I imagine if I had a black desk or a darker colored desk it would light-up better in the day or with the lights on.

It is a very sturdy mouse pad, well made, it is a harder rubber/plastic and has a good smooth sliding surface for the mouse. My mouse slides much more naturally when gaming vs. just using my mouse on my desk without the mouse pad. The rubber bottom keeps it in place, I have yet to notice it sliding on my desk while gaming. Even though the surface size is around 14" x 10", I almost wished it was a tad bigger, maybe 18" x 14".

You can adjust the lights via the Razer Synapse app (free) and change the colors and light patterns of the mouse pad. The Synapse app works with both Windows and Microsoft. The Firefly also works with Chroma enabled apps such as games and that will change the mouse color when in-game if you have allowed it to do so, this offers a much more immersive user experience when gaming. It is totally optional though, so you can keep Chroma apps disabled if you like and just keep your lights setup to however you want them to look. There are 5 different lighting effects you can apply to the Firefly as well as totally turning the lights off, which wouldn't make sense because you are paying $50-$60 for a mouse pad that lights up. You can also control the brightness with 3 different settings; dim, normal, and bright. There is a wide range of colors and I am not 100% sure but I think something like 16.8 million different color patterns to choose from.

Overall it is a great product and I highly recommend it, although it is a tad expensive and other than the lights it doesn't offer much over a $5-10 mouse pad. It is well made. If I had to rate it on just being a mouse pad is a solid 10/10.



 UPDATE: I also should have mentioned, the logo lights up as well as around the outer under-base of the mouse pad.

Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Pro

The MasterCase 5 Pro is a Free Form modular system that allows you to easily upgrade any hardware component inside your PC case. What Cooler Master defines as Free Form;

“Free Form enables you to vertically adjust or entirely remove drive cages via an intuitive clip-and-click panel, opening unparalleled flexibility to integrate replacement accessories like fans, water cooling reservoirs or even extra-long graphics cards.”
When choosing a case I wanted something that not only looked great but was also a beast in terms of being able to add more hardware to it as I built my gaming PC. Basically I wanted to future proof it in terms of having enough room on the inside for dual video cards, multiple hard-drives, water cooling options for when I overclock my machine, and something that was easy to manage. The MasterCase 5 Pro was that case! Look at the design of it, the black on it is sort of a matte black which gives it an even more bad ass look to it. The thing looks like the frigging Batmo…

FIVE must have accessories you should purchase with your Phantom 4

Extra battery - I’d recommend two extra batteries but they are expensive so at the minimum at least get one extra battery. The battery last about 25+ minutes or so, depending on what you are doing with your Phantom 4. If you are in Sports mode, flying fast, then the battery will drain quicker or at least it seems that way to me! I currently have three batteries and I am seriously thinking about adding a fourth to my arsenal.Bigger capacity MicroSD card - The Phantom 4 comes with a 16GB memory card which is just not enough storage capacity to be useful for most video shoots, especially if shooting in 4K. I’d opt for at least 64GB. Make sure it is 4K Ultra HD ready, faster write speeds are a bonus too! Currently I have two 64GB cards plus the 16GB card that came with the Phantom 4. I use the 16GB card for still images and the bigger cards for video.Phantom 4 Propellers - If you are new to unmanned ariels / drones then you might not have heard but accidents happen, often. Usually the pro…

ProCraft Cases backpack for Phantom 4

I recently purchased a ProCraft Cases backpack to use with my Phantom 4 and I wanted to give a brief overview of the product; as well as some of my initial opinions. The most important aspect of this bag is that the Phantom 4 does indeed fit, this bag was designed for the Phantom 3 initially. That is one of the biggest problems with the Phantom 4 just launching, sellers are trying to market their products made for the Phantom 3 as being for the Phantom 4. Some things do work well, like ND filters, but other accessories might not work with the Phantom 4 being a bit different in design from the Phantom 3. So as I purchase these items I will probably do short demo videos and write-up reviews on the products as I get them. The outside of the ProCraft Cases backpack is made of a vinyl material that feels very well made. It has 2 straps that allow you to wear this over the shoulders — there is also a handle on top of the bag if you prefer to carry it. There are 6 pockets (including the pouc…
