Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Black - Cherry MX Red (CH-9000011-NA)
  • Verified Owner

4 out of 5 eggs First impressions... kinda meh 02/19/2014

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Black - Cherry MX Red (CH-9000011-NA)

Pros: It's a little different then my razor black widow... red switches so the tactile feel is similar, but it's quieter.

Cons: despite the mechanical nature of the keyboard I can't help but feel let down on the build quality. It just feels cheap. I'm hoping my impression changes in the future.

The packaging in which it arrived was also poorly executed. unboxing for many of us is part of the joy of upgrading... but the packaging was cheap. cardboard.

Other Thoughts: While I'm sitting here typing on it, I notice I am faster typing on this then the black widow... but it just feels cheap. It's the keycaps I think. the base is aluminum? And most everything else is metal... but the key caps... feel... Nintendo-ey. They'll do the job but feel fisherprice.

Metal key-caps next time corsair... You'll be the first to do so and will hold market share until the others emulate you. my two cents.

3 out of 5 eggs Buggy 02/19/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

Pros: Material used is high grade. doesn't feel cheap, and nvidia is trying to make it work.

Cons: if you game in three display portrait, or any portrait monitor mode for that matter your stream will display as rotated on the shield... meaning the top will be on the left of the shield display and the bottom will be on the right. I've contact nvidia about this bug and they said they'd patch it... but nothing so far.

Other Thoughts: if this issue isn't resolved I will most likely end up returning the shield. I work from home, and play on the same pc, which mean triple portrait is beneficial for me to use. However the stream issue has prevented me from using it. I loaded an emulator on it and it doesn't skip a beat. the tegra processor is very powerful and the execution is flawless... just buggy software when streaming from your pc to the shield.

It's very heavy.

ASUS RT-AC68R Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n manufactured recertified
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Features, Speed, Software, Build material.

all of these are professional and well engineered.

if your still running a 300mb router, trade that sucker in. You're not a gamer if your still using it. The jump in connection speed between your router and pc is substantial. High-frequency trading interest you? get this router. It has what you need to script your trades as well as the speed.

Also comes with Asus cloud storage program. haven't used it but it sounds neat.

Cons: You need a 5ghz wireless adapter to take advantage of the 5ghz wireless band... kind of a Duh statement but it was something that occurred to me only after purchasing it.

Other Thoughts: This thing is the Bentley of routers right now. The software offers you network monitoring, QoS, VPN, and the speed is absolutely amazing. The high powered band makes dead zones a thing of the past and paired with a equal adapter I am now faster wireless then I was using a wired connection.
