    Okay, so it actually is the USB power problem. No more lags from my mouse. Thanks guys!

    Anyone of you guys know how much a Logitech G5 will cost?

    Challenger overprices their stuff?

    My dad's a member, so if the discounted price is the same, he'll at least gain some reward points.

    Normally... just do a check on the price first before you buy.

    OT... why anyone would join the Challenger membership IF you can go SLS or even other shops in Funan to shop ....there is a reason why Challenger was "forced out" of SLS long ago...WAY HIGH PRICE MARKUP....even when using their so called discount privileges as a member. If you are buying reputable brands hardware... you can save yourself some cash and the price of their membership (which they are always pushing at the cash counter for you to join ) by checking the price out in other shops first.... You might be surprise how much you can save by doing so depending on what items you buy.

    Heh. My dad thought that every few months we'd be spending bout a hundred on printer ink, and since Challenger Hougang and Pasir Ris are within short driving distance to my place (and MRT) he joined.

    How much can you save by buying canon ink cartridges elsewhere anyway.

    Try Popular Bookstore. I *think* you can buy and get a discount using the Popular card. Can't really remember now as I've stopped using ink.

    By buying compatible and not Canon original ink heheh... I stopped buying original Epson inks for years...I save abut 50-60%of the cost doing so. The quality is good enough even for my design and poster work.

    sometiimes challenger got special offers, those are worth to get... other normal priced items are not as enticing.

    i dunno how much they sell inks there, but i think the price is alot more expensive. cos i compared their price of toners (HP & Canon) both are more ex than if i get it from smaller shops around SLS or Funan. Best nowadays is get from those suppliers, they will delivery to our offices.

    think 2 year, seldom use, and seldom used for gaming...

    strange is the led light still work, but the sensor not working, dead mouse, nice for showing, bad for using as paperweight cos too light.

    The razer mice are.. built by gamers for gamers.. And since games phase out every once in awhile, maybe that's what the people at Razer want us to do.. constantly change our mice

    I'm going for a logitech ba. G5 should perform well for me.

    Dug up this week old thread.

    Apparently my friend, a mac user, faces the disconnection problem too with his Razer Diamondback. On windows, he'll also hear that 2-tone "device disconnected" alarm, followed by the opposite 2-tone "device connected" alarm.

    It's definitely razer's problem.

    Logitech G5 here I come!
