I cannot stop giggling while writing this post, for this is a story about dual RMA on OCZ Equalizer and one message that I received from a friend of mine yesterday evening. First of all OCZ Equalizer is an amazing mouse for however long it lasts for you. There is only 1 drawback for OCZ Equalizer Gaming mouse : its thin flimsy wire. I have had my OCZ mouse for about close to 2 years now, till it decided to go kabooom on me. All the sudden i saw “Device not Responding” message on my Windows 7 machine, while trying to read the details of it, i suddenly realized my cursor on the screen would not move, looked at the leds/lights on the mouse, and seemed like they had turned to the “dark side”. I was like “oh crap noooo”, while I dashed to grab some old cheapo logitech usb mouse. Wiggling the cable a bit at the end where it leaves the mouse, did seem to bring mouse back to life, but i cannot keep messing with wire with one hand, while trying to use the mouse with other !!
Opened up the RMA ticket with OCZ, and in about less than a week, I was ready to dispatch my fried mouse to OCZ for replacement or w/e they will do to the poor thing. This happened while I was in a game, and one of my friends was there asking why i was not moving ? I was like omg omg dude my mouse is dead. He was like “how can you kill a mouse”, I was like “huhhh it just dies sometimes, i do not know how to kill a mouse”. He was like, oh you need to treat your mouse better or something similar I do not recall. So, I was like “ok, mouse doctor”. Whenever he gets to read this post, he be like ” i did not say that” cause i do not think he did either, or maybe he did; my memory is iffy ! Anyways, it is the evening when i prepare to RIP the mouse and send it off the next day, I get a ding on my screen…. It’s a message from “mouse doctor” reading …. “omg laser on my mouse is dead” . I could not stop LOLing for it’s like OCZ Equalizer Apocalypse, for his mouse was apparently the “OCZ Equalizer” too, for I had convinced him to buy it for his gaming needs :). “Hehehehehehe”, I kept typing to him,till I lost count.. I am still giggling right now thinking about the message i saw on my screen 18 hrs ago. I did not go through my RMA dispatch yet, for am trying to do a combined DUAL RMA if possible to save of shipping for both us, and for OCZ too.. The mouse seems to have lots of cases of laser failing, but not many have had that bad luck, so I ding (aka send instant message) up another friend of mine asking if the mouse I recommended (aka OCZ Equalizer) was still working… and she was like, yaa … she have had it for about 6 or 7 months now and enjoying it. Let’s hope it lasts for her for as long as it did for me 🙂
I have ended up buying HP vooodna mouse, about $45 ish, and my friend ended up getting some logitech one. Funny thing is, I still keep recommending OCZ equalizer mouse, if i get a new mouse for dead one, that be awesome for there are no shops in this little city, where i can actually go and pickup a new OCZ product. O well.. Below is a picture of what OCZ equalizer mouse looks like :
