This review is from: Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red
Pros: Well lite . usb port . heavy weight nice construction.
My second corsair gaming board. This one unlike the first has a usb port. It allows for my mouse to have easy attachment. It is really heavy which makes you feel like it is good gear. Software downloads are on corsair site and I will need more then a week or two to understand them. But plug n play on my windows 10 build with an intel 6600k was easy enough.
Cons: Pricey. next con is true of just about every gaming keyboard and mouse there every was. It has a right handed bias.
I am left handed and as always it favors righties just a bit.
As for other cons none that I have found. My older corsair gaming board lack a usb port that was a big flaw.
Other Thoughts: I am older then most gamers. I always gamed but I go back to pinball in the 70's and played many hours with 'pong' as my first video game then space invaders pac man and up.
This key board heft and weight and feel kind of made me remember playing pin ball. For me that is a good thing. Oh my brothers kid's are looking forward to using it they like the other corsair keyboard and this one is much better.
Pros: It has a quiet fan.
It has 5 jacks that allow for pcie and cpu cables.
it will push 800 watts 24/7
Cons: It has 3 pcie cables with 2 jacks each.
why is this a con?
It is lacking a mother board power clip attachment>
Other Thoughts: If you want to do bitcoin mining many mining machines draw too much power on 3 pcie cables they need four pcie cables. A two headed pcie cable like the ones here can only use 1 plug. So 1 more pcie cable with 2 plugs would allow you to plug in 4 separate cables to your miner.
Also Corsair did not provide a motherboard power-on attachment This plugs into the mother board cable or the motherboard jack on the psu and tells the psu to turn on.
So basically this piece of gear is not geared for those of us the mine
BTC or any other coins. To mention a competitor the Evga 850 g2 comes with 2 single pcie cables and 2 double pcie cables which makes it a better mining psu.
So I gave this psu 4 stars not 5 stars.
It is a great psu if you use it in a pc. A five star model better then the evga 850 watt g2 because it has a very quiet fan.
I wish newegg would allow 4.5 stars as I truly like it running my
pc. I have an intel i5 6600k with a gigabyte mobo and it works really well for that type of use.
So I would tell people buy this for a 2 gpu pc over the evga.
But the evga for mining.
Pros: Once you load a good micro sdcard of 32gb or bigger it is an easy upgrade to windows 10
I got a year of office for free.
Cons: If you want the free upgrade to windows 10 and the 1 year of office the internal 32gb memory is too small.
I rather the charger cable be usb not a little long old school dc plug.
I think you could kill the audio port by plugging the charge cable into it.
It is a bit warm on the left back side.
Other Thoughts: Well If it came with 64gb memory it would be hands down outstanding deal at the price. I added a lexar size 32 gb microsdcard 1000x speed so the gear needs an upgrade. newegg has the fast lexar mirco sdcard.
With this upgrade cost about 30 I rate this really good . Yeah a bit heavy. Yeah it is a fingerprint magnet .
But it is fast very fast. Windows 10 and office. You can attach a low profile thumb drive from sandisk newegg sells that and add more memory.
Now I am an eggxpert reviewer and I own my own iPad mini. I would not have tried this out other then that I was asked to review it. I was happy with my iPad mini 3.
Now that I have it with the 32gb micro sd card upgrade I do like it better.
I had to purchase the lexar micro sdCard because I like 10.1 and I wanted to download that and the 1 year office setup.
So if you want a decent low cost table to run windows not android this will work really well with a good fast mirco sdcard size 32gb
Please note how often I mentioned a good fast micro sdcard size 32gb .
Would I buy this for my kids yes I would would I buy this for my nieces and nephews yes I would. In both cases I would include that good quality fast 32 gb sized micro sd card.
This like most tablets is wireless it connected to all three of my wireless router well. It ran youtube and netflix okay no stutter but low quality speakers means you will want earplugs
