This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches
Pros: *Heavy- I love the weight of this thing, will never slide no matter how hard you type or game with it.
*Sound- Personally I love it, but it could be a con for some.
*Portable- Although its heavy, its super small profile. Easily fits in a backpack, carrying case, or etc. Literally about 50% of the size of the Microsoft Sydewinder.
*Brightness- My entire rig is lit up, my mouse, etc, but this keyboard is by far the brightest. It's 3rd setting for brightness might as well be a lamp in a dark room. Seriously the brightest piece of gaming equipment I have EVER seen. (Fear not, its easily adjusted with Function + F11/F12)
*Good layout - Easily adapted from last keyboards with no problem. I would say my typing speed also improved a good 10-15 wpm.
*Price - One of the cheapest mechanical boards out there, and you really don't see why. The quality is outstanding. The Blue Switches are amazing.
Cons: *Sound - Its loud, people hear it over my stream. (Doesn't bother me)
*So Bright that the light bleeds around keys (Doesn't bother me)
*The northern-back keystands could be longer, as I like a more slanted keyboard when I'm not gaming. No big deal though.
Other Thoughts: Worth every penny of $80.00. You are not missing out on anything by getting this instead of a comparable $120.00 blue-switch mechanical, except the price and probably a bit of size. Up to you if you want to pay more for a bigger keyboard though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 18 months ago I bought a Visehera 8350 AMD 4.0 Ghz cpu and an AsRock Extreme 9 Mobo for this computer. My goal was to build a computer to handle streaming high level (D1+) League of Legends/SC2. This was (I believe) the best AMD cpu on the market at that time. I could not stream past 720p with the highest settings on either game, as both games are more cpu intensive then graphics wise. Even overclocked to 4.8ghz, the max I could go without raising heat through my water cooler, I could not sustain 1080p with dropping fps to 30 in high processing areas (Teamfights in league, or 200 supply army clashes in sc2).
Since I swapped the Mobo and Cpu from Asrock Extreme 9 and AMD Visehera 4.0ghz piledriver (8x), that isn't even close to an issue. It seriously blows AMD's old flagship out of the water. It isn't even comparable.
I do not even have this overclocked yet, as I just have no need. 1080p SC2/League of Legends with 540p webcam, music, streaming video on second monitor, etc, I can still run both games on high settings with 200-300 fps if I turn v-sync off.
The one time I did overclock, I turned it to 4.3 just to see how it would perform. I received 400 fps in both games, and no discernible temperature increase. Just to test it, I downloaded BF 3 on ultra and streamed, consistent 120+ FPS even streaming. (Although, even on the old setup, BF3 wasn't really a problem, as this game is more GPU intensive then CPU like league or SC2.)
I just have no need to overclock right now as I am not doing 3d modeling or anything that cpu intensive. I'm just using it for gaming purposes atm.
Cons: It is pricey. For just a good mobo combo with this processor + an MSI board (Which i highly suggest, this MSI board is amazing), you can buy a budget pre-built computer. ($500-$600 ish)
Other Thoughts: Worth every penny
Probably will not buy another AMD cpu in my lifetime.
Pros: Works +1 point
Fits my obscure old laptop with the adapter +1
Cons: *Noisy at full blast -1 point
*Heats up and could fry an egg on it at full blast -1 point
*At full blast playing an old game on my old laptop, like spore, actually doesn't gain any battery. Will just sit at 79%. Can't keep up with the power consumption. -1 point
Other Thoughts: About the price i expected, 0 points
Wish it was better, or cheaper, but being I had no other way to charge this old laptop, I'd probably still buy it again (although grudgingly)
