Peripherals & Accessories
As if the LANShark Extreme weren't enough to make your friends and foes envious at your next LAN party, Smooth Creations actually throws in several interesting extras. To continue the skulls theme, Smooth Creations included a custom painted Logitech G5 Laser Mouse and a Logitech G15 gaming keyboard. We love the fact that the mouse and keyboard match the system. And these aren't basic accessories. Unpainted, the G5 goes for around $65 while the G15 fetches $75-90 according to our price search engine. The paint work definitely makes them worth even more, and they are both highly touted by users and reviewers alike. Since they are modified by Smooth Creations, the manufacturer's warranty is void, but Smooth Creations states on its web site that it will cover the peripherals for the length of your system's warranty.
In addition to the Logitech mouse and keyboard, Smooth Creations also includes a custom painted metal box, which can be used to store and transport accessories and software to LAN events. When we opened the box, we found a power cable, the motherboard user's manual, the motherboard driver CD, the Blu-Ray drive user's manual, Nero burning software, system recovery DVDs, and Far Cry 2. The inclusion of recovery discs and a full retail game is definitely appreciated.
