GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Brand new chipset has allowed my SATA drives to take full; advantage of their speed
Very to easy to choose an over clock setting and get about 80% of the overclock.
Great looking and has lots of options

Cons: I took an egg off because the first board I purchased had a defective memory slot. The board as shrink wrapped and brand new so it shouldn't have had any defects. Newegg allowed me to purchase a replacement and cross shipped so it was able to have the new board on a Friday after I reported the defective one on Wednesday late evening.

Other Thoughts: I had previously had a competor P55 board (LGA 1156). I really liked it, but Gigabyte has managed to add some very good value and (tasteful) highlights to their boards which outstrips the competor motherboards. I am very glad Gigabyte has moved away from the multi-colored, blue boards of the past and they have really come to the forefront with these latest offerings.

Corsair Certified K70 Vengeance Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX Red, Red LED Backlit (CH-9000069-NA)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The keyboard looks and feels like a brand new keyboard. Wrapped in factor-applied plastic with no finger prints. There are three brightness settings of the keys and one setting turns off the backlight except for the keys, 1,2,3,4,5,6 and WASD and the up, down, and left and right arrows. Pretty nifty.

Cons: None. If you are looking for a great mechanical keyboard for $50.00 off the price, then purchase this one.

Totally on me. My typing skills just plunged into the toilet, as I am use to the mushy keys found on laptop. Also, the keys are not completely flat and "wrap" up a bit around your fingertips. The back lighting is a bit bright as I never before had a back lit keyboard. The red light is a bit sinister.

Other Thoughts: Because this is a refurbishment unit, I purchased the 1 year extended warranty for $7. It may be a waste of money. This is a new keyboard or so close to new that I can't tell. I mean there is no finger marks, or dust, or anything.

ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is the second RT-N66U I bought. I upgraded my mother-in-law's network.
1) Very easy setup with Advanced Features
2) Amazing range (2.4 and 5 Ghz) in all corners of split level home
3) Wireless Comcast Blast Speed Matches Wired Speed
4) Industry leading hardware in router which is unmatched (over the top cpu and RAM)

Cons: absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I have one of these routers in my own home to provide the full wireless bandwidth I paid for in the Comcast Extreme 105 package (121 Mbs).

Placing this router in an unobstructed location is very important. I saw a 42 Mbs jump when I removed this from the HDTV cabniet and placed it up top (7 feet above floor).
