Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000BR with Cherry MX Brown Switch
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Died in five months 05/20/2013

This review is from: Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000BR with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: Good keyboard while it lasted

Cons: Died after regular usage. Mild typing on it. Only used for autocad commands and it just crapped out today. For one hundred dollars you'd expect a better product but sadly that's not the case. Avoid this product there are other better ones out there for the price. Only worked for five months.

Other Thoughts: Was very happy until it broke. Same problem as others, the usb in the back stopped working. Still lights up but won't register any keystrokes. Very disappointed.

SteelSeries 64225 6Gv2 Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Died after five months 05/20/2013

This review is from: SteelSeries 64225 6Gv2 Keyboard

Pros: Good mechanical keyboard ,nice while it lasted.

Cons: Same problem as every one else with the usb in the back. Doesn't seem loose but stopped working. For this price you would expect better quality. Will RMA and try to replace at least. Steer clear of this one or you'll wind up like the rest of us.

Other Thoughts: Bummed it stopped working, was great while it lasted. Very annoyed something so expensive died like that.

ZOTAC ZT-40708-10L GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Really nice graphics card for the price, running everything on highest settings on borderlands 2 except phys x, resolution at 1600x900. Got it for 45 dollars (50 after shipping). Runs idle at 40C, while gaming highest it goes is 65C, not sure how accurate that is though. My case has six fans on it though so it might not be the same for you.

Cons: The temperature gauge for the GPU seems to be relative to the load it's currently under, NOT the actual GPU temperature. This bothers me because the fan speed on the GPU runs according to what that temperature reads, so if it's wrong and it's running at 70C while under a light load the fan won't kick on. This is a pretty severe problem, and a first time thing for me too, very weird.
The second thing is I'm using both DVI slots, and it's impossible to fit the mini HDMI inbetween them. So if I want to watch something on my TV from my computer, I have to unplug one of the DVI slots to make room for the mini HDMI plug. I'm not sure if it's hot swappable yet, haven't watched anything yet.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong this is a really amazing card for the price, especially if you don't mind all the little things. If you get this you won't be missing out on many of the graphic perks of the higher end cards, and those are usually anti aliasing x 16 things that don't make it look much better anyway. The HDMI is very annoying though, and the fan speed is very worrisome, so be aware of that as you buy this card.
Knowing all that, I'd still buy it though, especially after the experience. Runs like a champ.
