4 out of 5 eggs Works 03/23/2015

This review is from: Mount-it! Triple Mount Accessories - Monitors

Pros: Holds the monitors in place and had an extreme ease of setup and installation.

Cons: Doesn't hold monitors from tilting as firmly as I'd like, but once they are in place they tend to stay.

Other Thoughts: Could use some extra permanent adjustment screws to keep monitors from twist horizontally when bumped.

5 out of 5 eggs Most functional and Aesthetically Pleasing Keyboard Ever 03/03/2015

This review is from: SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Out of the box it looks amazing and works without any software needed as far as regular keys go. You can manipulate the lights through 4 pre-programmed themes as well as using the adjustment key to dim or brightent them as to not be stuck on or off. The software allows decent control over lighting and as it does have a bit of learning curve it doesn work well. I also love the fact that I again have 2 quick to use usb ports on the reverse of the keyboard. No more reaching to my tower!

Cons: No installation cd out of the box. I was at first surprised but who here doesn't have internet to download the latest drivers over the beta/release drivers that are usually buggy and miles out of date anyways. Anyone who has owned a graphics card can attest by the time you get the drivers installed your already downloading 20 revisions on new ones so I won't take any eggs off for that nor crititcize.

Functionally the only the only thing I can knock on is human nature and being acustomed to a normal keyboard. I constanlly am grabbing my home row based on my peripheral normality of where the keys SHOULD be and since this keyboard is wider and has macro keys im constantly missing the mark.

I'm sure this will go away over a week or two of use but being used to a different keyboard it has a small learning curve as far as getting use to a new layout. Think of going from a laptop to a full size keyboard for the first time with a numeric pad.

Other Thoughts: The onnly thing I would really have done differently is cut back the front of the keyboard from a design stand point. For those of us who rest in one spot constantly may find we get sweaty wrists laying on the extended front. tt in no way hinderes the use of the keyboard at all, more of a personal opinion on the design. And having a smooth spacebar key to swipe the thumb over versus a rough texture would be great. In fact most smooth keyboards I would have to say feel much better then this keyboard does. It is farily grippy with the keys. So where as some may like this some may find the keys feeling clammy. In any case, great keyboard, I'm happy with my purchase. And too anyone knocking the software, if you aren't at a level of need for sophistication in a keyboard and just want the fancy lights, then don't install the software!

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Haven't tested so far as the card arrived without the 6>8 pin power adapter

Cons: Card was delivered with no parts and just in time for the weekend and currently no response back from new egg after 24 hours on rma or part replacement. Now I'm looking at another week likely before use. Not happy.
