I had one of those moments when I first assembled this thing, turned on the power supply, hit the power button and ... nothing happened. It turned out I hadn't seated all of the power connectors correctly on the mobo. Now I wonder how many people have RMA'd power supplies after making the same mistake?
So now I'm looking into keyboards and mice. I'm a big fan of track mice (I've used one for years), but I'm a touch typist so keyboard choice is pretty important.

Big fan of razer mice myself, loving my diamondback after i finally worked myself up enough to spend so much on a mouse.
Zboard i have is great and is allright for typing because it can recognise more keystrokes per second that most keyboards can but still its not the best typing keyboard ive used but thats not what its for, its still among the top 10 ive used. I actually find MS keyboard really nice to use the ergonomics are really good, i dont like the ones that are spread out butterfly, i usually touch type(once i get used to my keyboard, still breaking this one in) and i found the MS one better the Zboard is more traditional QWERTY rather than the nice curved inward touchy feely MS one i did use.
Ive wired up my power switch wrong a million times, i just accept it as something i am going to do.
Lian Li is like the Gucci of computer cases, and at there prices you better hope they are impressive, i want one of the lian li desks, but they cost a fortune.

- A nice laptop solution when you don't have room for a mouse (certainly much better than a trackpad...).
- The pointer precision seems to be very good (though there may be a "learning curve" to get there).
- Reduces arm movement which can be good for folks with certain mouse related stress injuries. Although I think the bigger problem is probably related to moving ones hand back and forth between mouse and keyboard.
- Dirt gets into the trackball socket so you have to clean it out regularly (it will get a "sticky" feeling).
- The ball can pop out quite easily (and in my case roll under the couch ).
- I've used this for years now, but it may have taken me a long while to get used to.
- The mouse has 5 buttons, but I''ve never found a use for the extra 2 "outboard" ones.
I should probably check to see if there's any mouse evaluation software out there. That way I could test myself to see how well I can do with this trackball compared to myself using a mouse (and compared to other people using a mouse).
