This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KNUCKER Plunger KB-KNK008US Black USB or PS/2 Wired Gaming Keyboard
Pros: -Decent amount of bang for your buck.
-Keys have a great tactile feel to them
-A cheaper alternative to an over priced mechanical KB.
After a few hours of use, I find the board to be fairly comfortable. I've seen some say it's not comfortable to them at all but, that comes down to your own body mechanics and preference.
If you enjoy simplicity, form and function at a cheap price. This is a solid choice. I'm really impressed with the Plunger key feel. It's all about that slight tactile feed back and that is 100% present.
Cons: -No backlight
-No media keys
-Key caps are fragile.
Swapping out my WASD keys for the Red was of course the fist thing I did when I opened the box. Well be careful when putting the caps on. I managed to break a prong on the backside of one of the key caps almost instantly. The key its self still works fine. The cap is just very slightly loose. So take some caution when replacing your keys.
This isn't really a con for me but, could be for some. This is a no thrills KB. It is about as barebones as you get, much like many of the lower priced mechanical keyboards. That you can compare this board too.
If you're thinking about a mechanical and don't feel like paying 120 bucks for a very simple keyboard. You can't go wrong with this option. If you have the money to spend...Just get yourself a nice mechanical board.
Other Thoughts: The key caps have a very cheap feel to them. However that cheap feel isn't really present when you're using the board. Kinda odd.
I was torn between this and the MS Sidewinderx4. I feel this was a good choice for the tactile feedback alone.
I had a Corsair K60 Previous to this, but I sadly trashed that KB by spilling a beverage on it.
I didn't want to shell out anywhere form 80-110 to get another and settled with this KB. Very satisfied with this cheaper alternative.
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
Pros: Being your run of the mill user. I can't find a lot to hate about Windows 8 Pro. I'm not sure about the direction Windows is headed though.
I feel like I'm using a phone or tablet OS about 90% of the time. At first I really hated this aspect of Win 8 Pro. However, after getting use to the "live tiles", It's ok.
I've never cared for phone OS's though and this is what Win 8 feels like in a lot of ways. It's all in the feel that I get lost.
You still have your traditional desktop but I find myself using it less and less, since I can do everything from Start.
However, if I only had the Start menu for all of my programs and management, it would make me sick, it's comforting to be able to switch back and forth between the Desktop and Start.
The bonus for Win 8 Pro though is consistency, you'll have pretty much the same or a 'similar' OS across any Windows device you have.
A little bonus for current XBL users, there is some nice integration of XBL tools. Microsoft needs to revisit their XBL terms though.
Especially for PC users. Who wants to pay a yearly sub when any game outside of a typical MMO is free to play.
So... if you don't have a current XBL tag, you're forced into some dumb random generated name and the only way to change it is by buying a yearly or monthly sub. This only hurts Microsoft Games For Windows Live. Most people simply will not buy a game that uses the service. Who wants to pay for a service that has always been free.
Take a note from the mega PC gaming hub known as Steam. Steam constantly gives a lot back to their consumers. Through yearly, weekly and monthly sales. The service is free with a game purchase. If MS is serious about the PC gaming space, they have all the resources in the world to make a service every bit as good and free as Steam is.
Cons: A little worried in the direction this whole App craze is headed. Worried that websites that I'm use to being free will have a wonderful little fee attached to them before I can use them. ONLY 2.99 yadda yadda. Nickle and diming ya to death. Microsoft can be a very giving company and in that some token be very greed oriented machine.
XBL for PC users not free.
Concerns about the direction of 'Apps' and fee driven internet.
Other Thoughts: If you like Windows 7 and are happy, it's probably just best to stick with 7. If you like to adapt new tech, go for 8.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Touch Screen + Screwdriver + Suction + Plastic Pry Tool for iPhone 4S
Pros: Seller has been outstanding on quick shipments. I will continue to use MyStore365.
Cons: If you know for a fact you can safely replace the glass on an iphone without having to buy a complete LCD kit..Go for it. It's 10 bucks. I was not so fortunate. I'm sure with experience and a little bit of willpower I would be able to replace the glass. For simplicity's sake I will stick to buying a complete LCD kit.READ FULL REVIEW
