This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000 - Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Blue Switches
Pros: The nice thing about this keyboard is the blue switches. They feel great and once you get used to them there is simply no substitute for them.
You also get two cables to choose from: USB to mini USB on one cable (which gets you 6 Key Rollover) or PS2 to mini USB which gets you N Key rollover (basically you can hit every key at once)
The keyboard itself is pretty solid and feels rather heavy compared to the average rubber dome keyboard.
Cons: That mini USB port on the keyboard is weak. From the day I got it, that USB cable would wiggle just a bit. I avoided moving it for as long as I could because I had heard that the mini USB connection was weak.
Well, here I am a year later writing this review and the keyboard started acting up. It would act like it was unplugged and plugged back in... I would have to reach for the cable and wiggle it to get it to go back on and then finally the whole mini USB connection broke off inside the keyboard.
I loved this keyboard while it lasted, but that mini-USB connection is a deal breaker. I would have avoided this keyboard had I known this would happen.
Other Thoughts: It might be possible to fix it if you're handy with a soldering iron but I don't know. I don't really want to have to open the thing up and I might just find that it's impossible to fixREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The pros are the same for every SSD: Lightning fast, boot times are very quick. Windows 7 recognized it was an SSD and enabled TRIM for me. Absolutely no problems getting it up and running and it was well worth the investment.
It's still going strong after 2 and a half years.
Cons: After a few months of use it slowed down just a bit, but it's not terribly noticeable. The "windows experience index" was the only cue I had that it had slowed down at all. Of course at 60GB it's rather small, but I was only worried about putting the OS on the drive in the first place.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KWorld UB435-Q USB ATSC TV Stick
Pros: It's USB so you don't have to mess with installing a card. It comes with its own antenna but you can easily attach your own to it. Works great with Windows media center and it comes with its own software if you decide not to use it.
Cons: None that I've seen so far.
Other Thoughts: Previously I had tried a PCI-E 1x card for a TV tuner and the reception I got with that thing was spotty. I think it got a lot of interference internally from my computer. This has it beat in ease of set up and use.READ FULL REVIEW
