This review is from: SHARKOON 000SKSK Skiller Keyboard
Pros: It looks good and it's wired (USB).
Cons: 1. (-1 egg) The keyboard is different than the one pictured. The one shown on the site here shows a large backspace button and the "\" key is above the Enter key, on the keyboard you get they have made the backspace key smaller to that of a regular key and have moved the "\" up to that it is between the "+" and backspace keys, the Enter key has been made larger and now also takes up the space where the "\" key use to be. (Basically the Enter key is now in the shape of a backwards "L").
2. (-1 egg) They state that the keys are fully programmable. This is not the case. The 20 additional multimedia keys are not. The problem I have with this is that the e-Mail button is set up to launch Outlook and I use Thunderbird.
3. The feel when typing on the keyboard is like that of a laptop, they feel spongy.
4. One of the blue rubber keys (the "D") that you can change out with the normal black plastic one had a broken clip pin on it so I don't know if it will stay in place on the keyboard. At this time though I'm not using it.
5. It's cheaply made.
Other Thoughts: This isn't an overly bad keyboard, it will probably just takes time to get use to. The problems I have with it is that when I order something, I expect to get exactly what I ordered. Needless to say, the keyboard configuration and the fact that all the keys are not programmable as advertised places this in the false advertising category.
I would suggest that people buy a different keyboard, it's not worth the price.
Pros: Basically everything about this monitor is great, size, color, resolution....everything.
I could have purchased a cheaper monitor or a bigger one for just a little more but that isn't a con, it was a choice I made and I'm very happy with my choice.
Other Thoughts: I've seen people complaining about the base being flimsy but I find it to be about the standard. Besides, I'm neither using it on an unstable surface nor am I going to be hitting it. As long as you have it on a nice stable service you're fine, however this applies with any monitor that is set on a base and not mounted on a wall.
As with almost all LED LCD monitors you will have bleeding on the screen. Normally the monitor can be adjusted to get rid of this or to at least minimize it.
If you are looking for a great monitor, this is it.
This review is from: Tuneup Utilities 2013 - 1 PC
Pros: Easy to set up and works very well. It contains many tools to help speed up your system or customize it.
Other Thoughts: I've been using Tuneup Utilities for at least 5 years and this is one of my favorite utilities. I use it on almost every system I work on or build. So I must say that this is a great utility for any system and well worth the price.
In reference to the person that took off 3 eggs, saying that this isn't AVG software, he is wrong. Tuneup Utilities was purchased by AVG over a year ago. Tuneup utilities is the full license version that allows you to use it indefinitely until you decide to purchase and upgrade to a newer version. The other version is called AVG PC Tuneup which is the subscription base version of Tuneup Utilities that you need to renew every year or so to be able to keep using it.
I hope this information helps
