Rosewill Helios RK-9200BR Dual LED Illuminated Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After trying several others, this is the only mechanical red-LED keyboard I've found that works with my IOGear KVM switch (model GCS1104). The Brown switches give solid and comfortable key action and are quiet but not silent. The detachable cable is a nice touch that let me substitute a shorter cable instead of having to bundle up a fixed cable.

Cons: Num- / Caps- / Scroll-lock lights are always blue no matter what colors you make the other keys. It would be nice if they blended in. And as is widely mentioned already, this keyboard has no memory and you have to redo all your color / brightness settings every time it powers on. Since mine is always kept powered on by the KVM switch, regardless of the computers' power state, this doesn't much affect me.

Other Thoughts: The lighting in my Z-row, Alt keys, and spacebar went dim in the past few days. Looks like I may have to make use of the one-year warranty period. Disappointing, but at least there IS a one-year warranty period.

MSI GeForce GTX 650 N650-MD1GD5/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good for everything but SecureBoot 10/13/2013

This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 650 N650-MD1GD5/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Good performance for the price. Quiet fan. Working fine in Windows 8.1 with no hassles. One output connection of each major kind, so typically no adapters needed. MSI's "Live Update" software would download and install new firmware for the card, if there were any.

Cons: Doesn't exhaust all out the rear bracket. Doesn't support Windows 8 "SecureBoot"; how about some updated firmware, MSI?

Other Thoughts: Using this card on an MSI H77MA-G43 motherboard.

5MW Green Astronomy Powerful Laser Pointer Pen
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Powerful, indeed 12/01/2012

This review is from: 5MW Green Astronomy Powerful Laser Pointer Pen

Pros: Strong, vivid laser spot. On a reflective surface it can be almost dazzling. Uses ordinary AAAs instead of expensive and short-lived watch batteries.

Cons: A bit bulky, but that's an okay tradeoff for using AAAs.

Other Thoughts: Cats are notorious for chasing red laser-pointer dots. Interestingly, my mother's cat was totally indifferent to this green laser dot, but kept trying to sniff and paw at the beam. Fortunately I bought it to use as an actual pointer and not as a cat toy.
