This review is from: Razer DeathStalker Expert Gaming Keyboard
+Chiclet keys feel great
+Awesome aesthetics, goes great with my matching green DeathAdder and PC
+The font on the keys looks sick, as does the green led backlight underneath
+Has extra FN keys
+Attention to minor details (the little legs that flip out to raise the angle feel like they were meticulously designed for quality for instance)
+Very responsive, can hold down 10 keys at once without "losing" some
+did i mention it's QUIET?
+Gold USB plug, just like the mice
+Immediately recognized and customizable in Razer Synapse 2.0 along with my DeathAdder
Cons: -A little pricey for a standard keyboard. While the price isn't prohibitive, and pc gaming in general is expensive, I find $80 for a standard USB keyboard (at time of purchase) a little high. That being said, I think it's money well spent and I don't regret it at all.
-If you are SUPER hardcore about MMO gaming, I advise getting the Death Stalker Ultimate with the extra features geared towards WoW etc. I play FPS mostly, so i found that unnecessary. Obviously you can play WoW just fine with this though.
Other Thoughts: I'm a poor college student in the National Guard and haven't treated myself to anything in a while. My G.I. bill finally came in for this semester so I decided to complete my setup with a Death Stalker keyboard and DeathAdder mouse. A detail that somehow i've avoided in the 3 years that I've had and upgraded a gaming PC..
*My old keyboard was insanely loud to the point that my roommate got mad at me, he couldn't sleep if i was on my PC etc.. (He's a gamer but runs a laptop with soft keys), so I chose this keyboard with the chiclet style keys partly for that reason.
This review is from: Razer DeathAdder 2013 Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
Pros: +Very smooth physical motion
+Very smooth cursor response
+Automatically found on Synapse 2.0 which allows for a ton of customization
+Extra buttons (but not like 50)
+LED's look amazing, even better in person than the stock product image
+Braided cable is awesome, not sure why
+Comes with obligatory Razer stickers
+Buttons are very easy to click, very short throw, i found myself accidentally clicking it when i first installed it
+Works great with the Razer Vespula mouse pad my roommate gave me (he lost one of the rubber feet to it)
+Rubber side grips feel great
+Green goes beautifully with my PC
Cons: -Only real con is it's a little pricey. While the price isn't prohibitive, as PC gaming is expensive in general, I still find $60 (at the time of purchase) a little much for a standard wired mouse. That being said, I don't regret spending the money in the least.
-If you are an MMO gamer (like WoW) I recommend getting the Razer Naga, it's what my roommate has and he swears by it. I play mostly FPS so i don't need the extra 12 buttons lol
Other Thoughts: I'm a poor college student in the National Guard, and I haven't treated myself to anything in a while.. well my G.I. bill finally came in, so I decided to get myself a DeathAdder mouse and Deathstalker keyboard
The Synapse 2.0 software is very well set-up, I bought a Razer DeathAdder mouse and a Death Stalker keyboard at the same time, and when I plugged them both in, they were both immediately recognized by the program, and allowed me to customize each.
Also, for the mouse, you can choose a surface preset to calibrate the sensor to. Of course, one of the presets was the Razer Vespula mousepad that I use, and it even lets you designate which side you're using (speed or control, I use speed).
Pros: +Very affordable price point
+Good performance at stock
+Unlocked to x6 with no prob for me
+Turbo core technology (i disabled for overclocking)
+Overclocking is a breeze with unlocked multi
+Surprisingly low voltage required (see other thoughts)
+Doesn't run too hot for what you're getting, which in all honesty is a MASSIVE cpu die, 6 cores, and a chunk of L3 cache at 45nm = huge die area.. much larger than a gulftown hex core i7 for instance... it's even larger than an 8 core bulldozer die.. The only die that i know of that's larger is the hex core 2011 sandy bridge E chips
-Comes with nice little phenom case badge
Cons: -Can't read core temperature once extra cores are unlocked
-Included heatsink is abominable, but i chucked it on an older athlon system, works fine..
Other Thoughts: I got this cpu as an upgrade because my old cpu, (Athlon II X4 640) while capable, was starting to feel a little anemic in more high end games, specifically Flight Simulator X, and Battlefield 3. The athlon's main bottleneck is it's total lack of L3 cache, other than that, it's a phenom ii x4.. I bought this cpu for 3 reasons:
1) The shared L3 cache would eliminate some of the cpu's internal bottlenecks
2) The (now relatively high) possibility of unlocking it to an X6 cpu
3) The unlocked multi for overclocking.
My old athlon, the only way i could get it up to 3.4 GHZ was to dump the volts on.. as in 1.4625v in the BIOS.
This chip, however, came stock at 1.325v (MUCH lower) and was able to get it to 3.6 GHZ AT THAT VOLTAGE, however not 100% stable, so i bumped it up to 1.35v.. still way lower than my athlon, at a higher clock speed.
-Raised my geekbench system score from around 6500 to now, OVER 9000!!
