"The new Vengeance 2000 wireless headset relieves gamers from the hassle of accidentally rolling over cables or ripping their headset connector out of their PCs during the heat of battle."

I don't know about the headset and case, but I have the Corsair Vengence mouse on my Linux desktop and love it. I had considered the Razer and other more expensive high-end mice, but I'm convinced I made the right choice with the M90.
Like their memory, the product seems very well made, with an attention to quality. When you buy something that should last you through multiple computers and operating systems, quality and reliability should be the vanguard attributes of the item.
I wish the included software wasn't "Windows only", but Linux has no problem assigning actions to even 20-button (much less 15-button) mice. One day when I get bored I'll see if the macro programming utility works under Wine.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I'm actually really digging the Military green case. That would look awesome with a sabertooth mobo and radioactive memory!
Now you're just mashing it!
I agree, it has a unique look for a case. I think it's classy.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
I'll agree on that one too. That color and the big red button on the front make it look dangerous. Cool handles too.
Like to able to find DVD burners that are a matching color too.
Was nice to play with some of this stuff at PAX east...
If any of you are looking to purchase such things in the next few days check out ordering direct from Corsair... through the 12th they are offering 25% off with Pax2012_25 coupon code. I just ordered the AX1200 PSU from them for $225 which is a fairly significant savings even from Newegg.
Thanks for the heads up.
Corsair really does make some damn fine gear.
True. I wonder if there's some plastic-safe paint you could get in that same color.
