Razer BlackWidow Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard – Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00391500-R3U1)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Solid Gaming Keyboard - not so much for typists 05/12/2013

This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard – Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00391500-R3U1)

Pros: The keyboard worked right out of the box, software installed correctly, works well with my razor mouse (death adder).

Cons: The key layout does not work well for the casual user. My wife, adult daughter and teen son all have problems just typing with it. the Caps key and the close but not quite right layout makes the typist miss frequently. For gaming, it's spot on, especially with the razor game booster software and the mouse and keyboard software working together, but after several months of owning this keyboard, it seems I'm going to have to buy another one because the rest of the family just isn't getting used to the layout of this one.

Other Thoughts: If you the sole user of you computer, and you game a lot, don't shy away from this keyboard, but if you are looking for a keyboard for a family/community computer which many different people will be using for actual typing (reports, letters, homework etc.,) you are likely to get some serious complaints about keyboard layout, I am. (for those that care; caps key, and the pinky fingers keep finding the wrong keys on the upper rows) they just aren't quite where your hands expect them to be and you have to use the back key a lot. I'm not talking about casual typist either, but college students and business managers keep saying the keys aren't where thy should be).

KOSS SB45 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Communication Headset

4 out of 5 eggs They work 01/14/2012

This review is from: KOSS SB45 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Communication Headset

Pros: Nice fit, soft leather around ears and over the head, good feel for both weight and quality, feels durable, except for the microphone, it feels like its going to break loose or start spinning too easily.

Cons: silence is not silence, when the music or game is off, the speakers keep making noise, a constant flux and a crackling sound that I can't get turned off. Additionally, I can't remember the last headset I had that didn't have an inline volume control. When I switch back and forth between the speakers and the headset, it could be painful since I can't preadjust the headset. BOOM< ouch

Other Thoughts: I have small children, they are constantly breaking my headsets, I buy a lot of cheap headsets, for thirty bucks this is okay. I'm happy with the fit and the sound quality, and the feel of durability, if I had to wear these for many different tasks though, I wouldn't like the static sounds that can't be stopped.

Pixxo Monster Series 3200dpi ML-G235 DPI & WEIGHTS Adjustable Gaming Laser Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Mouse works, driver worked (not that you need it if you don't change the button functions). This isn't a con so I'll list it here, the rear red side button is the forward button by default, not the back button. Go figure? Changeable in the driver settings though, just mentioning it.

Cons: The mouse is small for my hand, smaller than a Microsoft Intellimouse, and smaller than a Logitech G series. My 13 y.o. boy thinks it perfect, and my 15 y.o daughter says its okay too, but I don't have big hands and thought I'd mention it.

The cord is short, about two feet shorter than I'm used to, I bet its only 4 feet.

A little hesitancy in the button responses has me worried, but I've gamed with it a little, and I'm changing all my mouse settings to try and adjust things, I have hope that its solvable, but still, single clicks seem to require a second attempt a little too often to not be mentioned here.

Other Thoughts: The flashing circular light can not be stopped, it stays on and it stays changing colors.

With $20 off, the price was right, I think I'd try a different cheap gaming mouse next, but I'll keep this one until it breaks, not sending it back.
