This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Physically feels very well built. Mechanical keys are nice and gives it a feel of quality.
This keyboard is HEAVY. Not some plastic garbage M$ keyboard.
Cons: SOFTWARE (as stated all over the place)
This software is a JOKE.
But the biggest issue I have with this keyboard is.....
GHOSTING ON MY NN KEY.
(about 70% of the time, when I hit the 'N' key I get a double tap, this isn't a nombie Apocalypse. I don't need the Doubletap, thank you)
It is the most annnoyingn thingn in the world!
I type fast enough that I can actually get a few letters in between the ghosting. ( could have sworn this keyboard has anti ghosting) The N key doubletap is pretty much making this keyboard UNUSABLE for normal everyday use. Really disappointing.
Other Thoughts: I am really not happy with this N key issue. I would say maybe it is bouncing.... but its mechanical.... I just don't like it much at this point. and it is definitely just that one key.
I really hope Rosewill stands by the warranty.
As I already sent inn the UPC for the mail in nrebate
I have left in all the double 'N NN' issues so you can see what I am dealing with, I am tired of using the backspace to fix.
Still, giving it 3 stars because I think they keyboard is decent, and hope that I am a rare occurrence of getting a bad switch.
Will update after working with rosewill to get warranty service.
Pros: ASUS - need I say more?
Perfect "Mobile" option for when I'm not at my beast desktop.
Dedicated semi-high end graphics (this isnt running your games on Intels "Graphics" processor.
2 Gig VDDR5 memory helps a lot - 4 would be better, but that is extra $$.
Dark Souls 3 looks great (note: enable Virtual memory if you are like me and keep it disabled, as the game is not yet optimized and will CRASH HARD)
Good mobility, as it is smaller and lighter than other "heavier duty" gaming laptops.
Just keep it plugged in to play games.... and at 190Watts. That power inverter in the car just isn't going to do it on this laptop. sadly...
The box it came in was beautiful, it was a shame to rip it open like the blood starved beast does a corpse..... but it sure was tasty, what was inside. :-D
Screen is BEAUTIFUL. Every bit as good as my BENQ monitor.
- Keyboard is VERY nice also, for a laptop keyboard. Back-lighting is nice like the RED.
Outside is textured to blend any fingerprints so they cannot be seen - not the prettiest, but beats fingerprints all over.
Not 4k (see other thoughts).
Cons: Virtual Memory set up on the SSD - Premature Wear, move it to mechanical disk if you like your system running for a while.
-not really a con, I am just AN*L and probably old school as SSDs are living much longer these days, you know what they say about old dogs, and tricks.
Plastic - fingerprints -
Other Thoughts: Great VALUE! this machine was purchased as a shell-shocker so I definitely feel $700 is a good deal. At its current price of $799, it is still a great deal.
For 800 bucks, you cant come anywhere close to this in the stores.
8 Gig DDR4 ram just isnt enough. *note to self, UPGRADE RAM. -not in cons, as it is reflected in price
I replaced the 1TB drive with a 256G SSD I had laying around, and threw the 1TB drive into my PS4. -(thus why I disabled the Virtual memory) Upgrading ram will make it a non-issue.
Kinda gimmicky to offer 4k on gaming laptops..... when the hardware cant even push games to 4k.
reducing clarity of the 1080p gaming (which the hardware CAN run)
Pros: Worked with my Chromebox (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883220591)
Other Thoughts: Great ram for use in the CHROMEBOX.READ FULL REVIEW
