This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000 - Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Blue Switches
Pros: Inexpensive mechanical keyboard
Great matte surface finish
Good build quality
No stupid software or macros
Cons: Not pleased with actuation of some switches. All the switches on another of my keyboards are consistently clicky.
Included braided cord was not functional.
Red backplate is understandable (brand colors) but distracting
Other Thoughts: I had an issue with the braided cord and Rosewill was very helpful and responsive to my concerns. I will buy from this brand again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plays what I want [DOTA2 maxxed]
Cons: Bought for $140 @ Newegg early this year (2012)
Now is 99 which is much more reasonable. It would get a 5 star @ that price.
Other Thoughts: Hopefully it will last as long or longer than my 9800GT OC from BFG [RIP BFG]READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GM-M8000X Rubber Black 7 Buttons USB Wired Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: Good looks
Good texture on both the buttons and the sides [see cons]
Cons: My previous mouse was a MS Wheel mouse optical 1.1. I had it for more than 6 years.
It was abandoned because I had worn the textured plastic smooth many times after resurfacing with abrasives.
This coating is wonderful to feel. So much so that I absentmindedly damaged it through scratching with fingernails. This coating is similar to that on my phone which I love so much. The con is that the coating did not last longer, and for the price I will not buy a replacement.
If anything, I would work to replace the worn areas [mostly mouse1] with something that would last me ~10 years., maybe get some aluminum machined for fun.
Other Thoughts: The included software is hokey like many computer companies make it so it looks flashy or whatever. It is functional enough to configure the mouse.
I have and will recommend this mouse to all of my friends.
