Tt eSPORTS KB-KNK008US KNUCKER Plunger Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Cheap and a Good Performer 02/17/2014

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-KNK008US KNUCKER Plunger Keyboard

Pros: Simple design/layout
+ I like the banded USB cords for giggles

Cons: Handrest could be a bit cushier, but whatever works. I've not had any real issues with it during extended sessions.

Other Thoughts: Bought it to replace a wireless keyboard that was starting to have issues with responsiveness. This has been a large improvement in responsiveness, cheap, and does exactly what I need it to do.

PowerColor PCS+ AXR9 270X 2GBD5-PPDHE Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Cheaper than Nvidia for similar performance (close to GTX760)
* Got it on sale
* Runs BF4 on High at 60 FPS+

Cons: * None so far, runs really well

Other Thoughts: I got BF4 and tried to run it on my 3.5 year old rig. I could run it alright on Low settings, but any higher was less than 10 FPS. It was okay for a while, but would occasionally stutter down in FPS in some heavier fights. So I started researching a card that could stretch the life of my system.

Originally I wanted to stay with an nvidia card, but kept seeing the new R9 cards running so close and cheaper than the nvidia cards.
The 270X was running neck and neck with the GTX760 and was a good $50-70 cheaper. Eventually that sealed it.

If you're looking for a good midrange card that can run all the modern games well, this is a great choice.

HP W2072a Black 20
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Got it on sale for $80
- Works as advertised

Cons: - Sadly didn't include a DVI cable in the box and we had to go out and hunt one down at the store. Inconvenient, but still at $80 I wasn't gonna cry over it.

Other Thoughts: Bought it for a second monitor for my wife. She's been seeing how I've used my second monitor and wanted in on it as well. We set it up and have had no issues with it at all.

Not sure where the viewing angle stuff came from in other reviews. I can can see the monitor just fine from across the room and I'm not the active user. My wife uses it as her second monitor and has no issues as well with it being off to the side.

It's not the best monitor in the world, but if you're just using it for a second screen and you get it for $80, I'd say it's well worth it.
