Do you have large hands? Could see big hands doing a lot of damage over time to a mouse. Find it interesting as to what causes such things.

I've had mixed results with headsets. I tend to get cheaper ones since I only use them in co-op for voice. I also tend to be rough with them since they were cheap. Last pair one of the ears went out. Though for my current set I picked up a Sony PlayStation gold wireless headset that I care about a little more. Want to keep that one around.


That K70 keyboard comes in today. Can't wait to check it out. That Das has been a great keyboard though it's bulky for my keyboard tray and I'm bored with it. I'm also looking forward to replacing my work keyboard with the Das. I'm at work right now typing this on a cheap Logitech K120 membrane keyboard. It's a good keyboard for what it is and better then what came with the computers but I need mech in my work life.

I sure do have pretty dang large hands, and as a result I'm 100% palm grip. I'm not sure how that could detract from the life of the mouse, but I do tend to move my arm very, very little when using my mouse, so that means I'm constantly picking it up and putting it back down. That light impact, even with a mousepad, could have an effect over a few years I guess.


To get back on topic, Das boards seem like they're pretty nice, but they're just not interesting to me anymore. The friend of mine that originally introduced me and a few others to computer building had a Das as his first mech, way back in 2013. I'll always remember their online store for selling earplugs though, that was a nice touch. The K120 is a classic though; I feel like everybody has one or has used one, and it was pretty nice to type on for a $10 membrane board.

That's it then. You've got large hands which likely put a lot more wear on your mouse (heavy fingers and the such). I've got average sized hands so my mice tend to last a long time.

This Das Pro 4 is buildt like a tank. Could use the thing as a blunt weapon and not dent it I'd think. Mine uses Cherry Mx browns so it's not overly loud. Yeah the keyboard is great but it's pretty boring compared to some of the newer ones out there. It's funny because I had no intentions of replacing it but now that I am I can't wait to try something new.

Can't complain about this k120. Think they're $8.99 on amazon right now. For the price you get a solid enough keyboard that is fairly satisfying to type on and seems to be sturdy enough. Might not be able to use it as a blunt weapon but it's cheap enough that you could just chuck the things. =D

Well, got the K70 in. First impressions is it feels less premium then my Das pro 4 though that was to be expected. Outside of the that volume knob on it doesn't have a click and tactical feedback like the das does making it noticeably less satisfying to adjust the volume.

None of this is too much of an issue though what is an issue is the keyboard is too high for my keyboard tray. I can't close the tray with the keyboard in it. Because of my diy computer chair mat I can't lower the keyboard tray lower then it currently is without my knees hitting it.

I've included some pics of what I'm talking about. You can see my mat and where the keys on the K70 hit the mounting location of my keyboard tray. =(

Two things. First, the tank is tinted. second I think I've been vaping on the tank for 3 or 4 days. Getting about time for me to replace the atomizer. When I swap out my atomizer I clean out the tank and replace the juice.

Got the Logitech G513 in today. Build quality feels better then the K70 though I'm not a huge fan of the Romer G switches. Feels like a poor mans brown switch. The Tt Esport Poseidon with Cherry MX Browns I'm replacing has a better overall feel. Though, might just take some getting used to.

I like the wrist rest that comes with the G513. Going to use it with that K70.

A good friend of mine sold his Ducky One 2 Horizon, it was an offer that I could not refuse.

With Silver Switches, I never tried they before, I like it more than reds, but I'm not sure yet if also more than the browns, jejeje.

I want to try a Ducky keyboard I don't need a Ducky Shine as long as it has PBT keycaps.
