    I am serious man, if it were that sunbeam didn't care what i thought... then i would say the exact same thing.
    There quality out performs other modding companies, i haven't used any ultra stuff, but thermaltake are pretty crap, Vantec are alright, nothing real special.
    IMHO, i think sunbeam are very good, low prices and high quality. But the true reason i like sunbeam is because they actually listen. Roy, one of the PM's there takes my opionions in to consideration. But the whole team at sunbeam is real nice.. not only to me but other people too.

    I have found....

    ...that Sunbeam makes great stuff for the money. The best quality devices comes from Cooler Master, in my opinion. I'm a walking banner for Cooler Master. :p

    Cooler Master Gear is good too, never had a problem with it. Aerogates were good, Cool drives....Chassis's i have a little Cooler like Al on my Skt A Computer atm. and it works like a charm

    You won't hear me singing the praises of Thermaltrash, that stuff is garbage. I've gotten burned twice with their junk.
    But still, you know, you guys think I'm all for Razer stuff, I'm not, I bought one Razer mouse, but you guys definately do have a thing for Sunbeam products, you've gotta admit it. I can only say that when it comes to their stuff, I've used that little pyramid fan controller and that's it. Unless you count their household appliances. I may have owned a toaster or something they made once. :)

    Sunbeam...Moonbeam.....Jimmy Bean....

    I'm pretty sure it's a different Sunbeam company. I think we used to have one of their toasters too. Or maybe it was a coffee maker. :p

    Un, dude, not even close, think about it. I own 7 Logitech mice (currently, not counting in the past) and I own 1 Razer (ever, period). So how does that equate to my having a thing for Razer? It doesn't. In fact, I haven't used the Razer for a few weeks now. It's all but useless for every day stuff, it's ONLY good for gaming. The ambidexterous design is terrible for surfing the web, those right side buttons get in the way and the back/forward buttons (side buttons) are laid out in a very bad way and require too much pressure to activate. Therefor, I use the MX1000 for almost everything. If I forget to charge it and need to stick it in the charger I switch off to the MX510 or MX710 or MX900. I only use the Razer if I'm playing UT2004. That's about all. If I get a chance to test drive the Copperhead and it improves on those faults then I'll speak up on that mouse.
    What I'm really looking forward to is Logitech's next mouse, 2000DPI, cordless, rechargable, the best of both worlds in a mouse that'll feel perfect. Now that I'll put up to any mouse by any company.
    If you wanna shoot me one of those Sunbeams to do a review on, I'll give it a serious and fair chance. I use a lot of mice and keyboards and love to try new ones but I seem to always go back to my Logitech mice and as for keyboards, whatever's handy usually. Right now I'm switching between the ZBoard and the Logitech DiNovo board.

    Well, for one thing, I wasn't shouting nor was I writing in an upset tone. Did you read it? Looks like you maybe didn't. For another, if you'd read it you'd realize I'm more of a fan of Logitech than anything else.
