Compliment your gaming mouse with the Razer Scarab gaming surface.

Razer RZ02-00420100-R3U1 Scarab Gaming Surface Mouse Pad

Razer RZ02-00420100-R3U1 Scarab Gaming Surface Mouse Pad

I recently posted about the Razer Naga 2012 gaming mouse that has become my new “main mouse”. In addition to the new mouse, I’ve also upgraded to the Razer Scarab precision mouse pad. To be honest, I’d never replaced my mouse pad before purchasing the Scarab. I had always just assumed that “a mouse pad was a mouse pad”, and that the one I’ve always used would always be good enough. When I originally purchased the Naga, I wasn’t noticing the “razor sharp precision” that reviewers on the internet had talked about. I thought the mouse tracked about as well as any other mouse — it was decent, not great. I’ve always had issues clicking small interface or game options with precision at very high screen resolutions. I’ve always needed to turn down pointer speed or mouse sensitivity to maintain a smooth experience, and the Naga was no different. It had never occurred to me that my mouse pad could be the issue.

Now that I’ve upgraded to the Razer Scarab mouse pad, I understand what “razor sharp precision” means. The Scarab is a hard-surface mouse pad with a texture designed to aid in movement and tracking. Not only is very little effort needed to move the mouse on this surface, the action is completely “drag” free. I can turn all my sensitivity options up to the max and still maintain perfect accuracy. The mouse feels as if it’s floating over the surface of the mouse pad — very similar to the way paddles glide across an air hockey table. There’s almost no resistance, which means you’re free to make very small, very precise fingertip movements at high sensitivity consistently. If you’re upgrading your mouse, I strongly recommend you upgrade your mouse pad as well. Take advantage of the advanced optics and tracking featured by modern gaming mice with an appropriate gaming surface like the Scarab. The Scarab is available for $30.54 at ShopBLT.com, here:  Razer RZ02-00420100-R3U1 Scarab Gaming Surface Mouse Pad

Caught in a storm without reliable flashlights?

November 15, 2012 Leave a comment

During our preparations for hurricane Sandy recently, we came to realize that we needed to purchase a new set of flashlights.  Ours were in a sorry state. Half were lost or broken, and the flashlights that we could find were decades old, used bulbs that didn’t put out much light, and required C or D cell batteries. None of our home electronics really use C or D cell batteries anymore, so we never have any on hand.

We also simply needed more of them. As some were lost or broken, We didn’t even have enough working flashlights on hand to provide one to each person in the house in the event of a power outage.

After some researching, we ended up choosing HoffCo’s Norlite brand. We bought several of the 19-LED and 4-LED models. They all feature solid aluminum cases with rubberized gaskets so they’re impact and water resistant, bright LED’s instead of bulbs for long lasting battery life, and they use AAA and AA batteries. The best part of all, is that they’re extremely inexpensive. $11 for the 19-LED and $4 for the 4-LED, and they include batteries.

We purchased 5 of both models. Every one arrived working perfectly. The quality of these flashlights is amazing considering the price — especially since they come with batteries. If you need to update your storm kit or are looking for an inexpensive but high quality emergency flashlight for your glove box or purse, I’d highly recommend the Norlite series. They’re extremely well made for the money, and are available in several different colors.

HoffCo Norlite Flashlights are available from ShopBLT:

Razer Naga 2012 MMO Gaming Mouse with Adjustable Grips

September 14, 2012 1 comment

Razer Naga 2012 MMO Gaming Mouse

Razer Naga 2012 MMO Gaming Mouse

As a fan of PC games, I’ve always been partial to the keyboard and mouse control scheme. Several years ago, the gaming hardware company Razer created the “Naga”. The Naga is a gaming mouse that features a 12-Key thumbpad for use with Massively Multiplayer (and other) games. I’ve long been a fan of the standard 2 button Microsoft Mouse. I’ve been using the same model for years, and I’ve grown accustomed to the shape and feel. When I purchased the original Naga years ago, I was disappointed to discover that I hated the shape. In fact, I couldn’t stand it. The mouse was too large and oddly shaped to sit comfortably in my hand.

Thankfully, Razer has now released the Naga 2012. While the basic design has remained the same, this new updated 2012 model now includes 3 different interchangeable grips for the mouse. These 3 grips drastically alter the size, shape, and feel of the mouse.

One of these grips, called “Claw Grip”, is actually very close to the feel of the original Microsoft Mouse I’ve been using for years. As an added bonus, the 12 thumb keys are turning out to be useful in other unexpected applications as well. The keypad works great for quick number entry on online forms and for softphone / Skype dialing. If you’ve tried the original Naga in the past and disliked the shape, or if you’re simply in the market for a gaming mouse with an adjustable size and grip, I can’t recommend the Razer Naga 2012 enough.

The Razer Naga 2012 is available at ShopBLT.com for $80.90 shipped.
