SAMSUNG USB 2.0 (3.0 Compatible) External DVD Writer Model SE-208GB/RSBD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Oldish PC boots from it 03/27/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 (3.0 Compatible) External DVD Writer Model SE-208GB/RSBD

Pros: Installing Windows from it as I type.

Cons: Not USB3, but then it's CHEAP.

Other Thoughts: I avoid using optical disks, but sometimes have to. It's kinda nice you don't have to muck up your box with a DVD writer that you use only occasionally.

Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xRBR - Mechanical Keyboard with Red Backlit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Update after a week of use 03/12/2015

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xRBR - Mechanical Keyboard with Red Backlit

Pros: Still typing faster and more accurately than with my "old" Rosewill 9000 with Blue switches

Cons: After a week of use, I'm experiencing the the "a" double taps the Bryan posted aabout. It's pretty darn annoying. I changed the Character Repeat delay in Windows to the lowest setting and it doesn't seem to help. It's really kind of random. It's not too terrible at this point, but if it gets worse, it could be a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: Still can't get used to the keycap "engravings". The point of a backlit keyboard is to haave the "engravings" visible, and with the weird side-by-side orientation of the characters, they are very hard to read. Rosewill: look aat a 1986 IBM keyboard and copy the graphics. Jeez. Grr, and the aa problem!

4 out of 5 eggs First Impressions 03/03/2015

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xRBR - Mechanical Keyboard with Red Backlit

Pros: I'm typing faster! and more accurately! DVC!

Cons: graphics!

Other Thoughts: OK, i'm compelled to comment on this keyboard even though I've only had it for a day. My typing speed is MUCH better! And I'm coming from a very decent Rosewill Cherry Blue MX keyboard.

I really wanted baclit keys (I got the red LED figuring this might be better than blue as blue light is supposedly bad for sleep) and thought I'd give the brown switches a try. Now I feel like the blue MX switches are kind of a gimmick. I'm typing faster and more accurately on the Brown switches. I'm not new to mechanical keyboards: I also have a CM Storm with blue switches (it's a 10-keyless...I need the 10-key as I often need to type special characters...) as well as the Rosewill 9000 with blue MX switches and, yes, I even have a 1986 IBM M keyboard. This keyboard is by far the best for me.

What I don't like -- and another poster mentioned this -- is the side-by-side arrangement of the characters on the keys. Why do keyboard mfg feel like they have to get cute and depart from a time-tested format? My CM Storm is like that with some outlandish font. You wouldn't think it would make any difference as we know where the respective keys are, but it really is an annoyance.

The mic and headphone ports are useless to me (does anyone NOT use a USB headset?) and even the USB 2.0 ports aren't particularly useful due to the configuration of my desk. I just have my mouse receiver plugged in to one.

Unlike my other Rosewill keyboard which has a removable USB cable (evidently a source off problems, although not for me...) this one has a huge fixed braided cable.

Others have mentioned that the keycaps seem cheap and I would have to agree, but then I don't have experience with a "premium" keyboard like a DAS. They seem fine for the price.

Oh, the wrist rest: very nice, but don't plan on taking it on and off: as someone already mentioned. The finish is a kinda matte black which really shows ... not exactly fingerprints ... but shininess from use. My spacebar is already shiny in the middle like an old keyboard -- after one day.

So far, I'm pretty stoked with this keyboard. I love typing on it and the extra speed and accuracy I've gained. We'll see how durability is, but I'm pretty easy on my toys so I expect it will last just fine.
