Silicon Power 32GB Elite microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 85MB/s (SP032GBSTHBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Works as promised, with a surprise. First I tested it capacity to verify its really a 32gb card. Other sites have a lot of counterfeit cards for sale at cheap prices so don’t buy any place but! Next I tested speed with a couple of speed test programs and that’s where I got my first surprise. The read speed is high but the write speed is disappointing. So I went back to Silicon Powers website to check the specs. Surprise! No write speed specs are listed. The speed test programs showed the card read speed at 85MB/s but the write speed test came back at best of 23MB/s. That’s better then some but not so good for what most people want it for. The high end cell phones now have 21mp cameras and will need cards that can write fast, at least 21mp/s fast, this card just barely cuts it.
In real world testing on a high end pc showed an average write speed at 20.5mb/s and a read speed or should I say copy speed to a OZC pcie x4 Revodrive3 was at best 77mb/s. I tried formatting the card to NTSF, exFat, and fat32 with no real world changes in read or write speeds. The only advantage to changing formats from fat32 is the larger file handling of NTSF and exfat.

Cons: The only con is the write speed is dismal. Think about it taking 30 minutes to transfer 30gb of files to the card but only 8 minutes to copy from the card.

Other Thoughts: I like the coloring of the card making it easy to find in a tray of other sd cards. Price is good. Reliability? We will see.

ASUS ZenPad Z580CA-C1-BK Intel Atom 4 GB Memory 64 GB eMMC 8.0
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: still a great tablet after a year.

Cons: battery life shortens quickly. it used to last almost all day with constant use but is down to about 5 hours now. battery life shortened quickly after I ran the battery down to 5% a couple of times. charge at 25% to give more life to the battery.
the touch screen develops dead spots requiring reboot at times.

Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Speed RGB
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This looked like a cheap plastic 70's style keyboard till I put on my glasses and found out that it was aluminum with a brushed black finish. Lifting the keyboard you feel the quality of it. It's a bit on the heavy side compared to other keyboards made out of plastic. Checking out this keyboard you see it is adjustable and comes with a wrist pad. It also has some custom key pads you can install to your liking. Gamers will love this feature. Installing this keyboard was simple, just plug it in and it works right out of the box like most keyboards. This keyboard has a USB passthrough that many will love. The kb does not come with a software CD so you must go online to download it. Very simple if you are connected and very fast and easy to find.
Now to the leds, very nice. You can adjust the brightness right from the keyboard! Even turning them off. The software is nice and simple to use. You can easily change themes of how the leds work. From patterns to key presses. I settled on the color fading theme. Now the letters are all very easy to see and I'd swear my typing speed has doubled as I still type by sight. One thing I like a lot is the fact you can turn the leds off if you leave the computer on overnight. The keyboard sound and feel are perfect for me offering near perfect amount of response, pressure, and sound for my liking. The cable is covered in a sleeve vastly improving the look of the cable. Modelers will love this keyboard.

Cons: Cons? Well maybe the price is a bit high but the use of usb 2.0 instead of USB 3.0 is a definite con. Come on Corsair where is the USB 3.0? This is a new keyboard not a old relic. Strange to see no software CD included but I understand Corsair wanting you to have the latest software from their site. They also made it super simple to find and download.
