Pros: The SP SD Card is rated at class 10, I was not able to test this but I was able to test the transfer speeds at USB 2.0 speeds. In my testing I got Sequential read speeds of 20.08MB/s and write speeds of 13.37MB/s take the results with a grain of salt, as I was limited to USB 2.0 speeds which tops at 60MB/s. I'm using a cheap generic SD card reader so with a name brand reader and USB 3.0 speeds I would estimate a data transfer rate of 30ish MB/s read and 20ish MB/s write. These results were achieved by CrystalDiskMark. When I copied a 2.8gb movie from a hard drive to the drive the speeds peaked at 16MB/s the transfer took about 2 and a half minutes. Again this is with the limit of USB 2.0 Speeds and a 7200RPM Mechanical hard disk.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product thanks to its very reasonable price and performance during a bottle necked test
Specialty for 9.99 its a great steal
Pros: The G1 gaming board is a beautiful motherboard from gigabyte that takes the AM3+ socket and most standards of ddr3 ram. I used this as an upgrade for my system and it had no problem taking my AMD FX 8120 and my 1600MHz RAM. The board had a red led light that goes around the board partner this with a case that has a side window, it makes the board look very pleasing. the board also brought the upgrade of an m.2 slot, this will allow for a fast way of booting up and loading programs on you're computer. The board has enough SATA ports to accommodate most peoples needs. The boards fans connections are not layed out very well tho, i had to run the fan cable in an awkward way to make it reach. It would of been better of the fan connection where spread out a little bit so that it would make wire management easier. Other than that i'm very happy with the upgrade to this board and would recommend it.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this to the user with a AMD that's in need of the a newer moboREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The Corsair k70 Rapidfire is a mechanical keyboard that strives to be the best mechanical keyboard on the market for gaming and typing. The way it boasts this is the new Cherry MX Gaming switch which has a 45g actuation force meaning you can barely touch the key and it will activate, it also means that you don't have to bottom out the key but if you do it will recover faster. The k70 rapidfire was my first mechanical keyboard and so far, I like it. My already fast typing speed seemed to get faster upon switching to this keyboard from a k30 membrane keyboard. The rgb lighting is also a really nice touch, you can choose between various effects or set the keys to a solid color. If you wanted you can change the color of every individual key. The keyboard came with a wrist rest that added a lot of comfort while using this keyboard. The keyboard also features 4 height adjustments to allow for the most comfort possible. If you don't like loud clicks of a mechanical keyboard beware this product as the Cherry MX gaming switches are about twice as loud as the normal cherry mx red switches. If you're into gaming this keyboard has some great features, like a textured spacebar, also it came with replacement wasd, qe and 1234 keys that were textured compared to the stock keys which are not textured. In the case of macros the keyboard has no macros but in corsair's software suite you can remap keys to do things that a macro key would of done. The keyboard for the price is amazing, it has little travel so you're typing speed will improve, great features for gaming, comfortable ergonomics, and a very nice aesthetically pleasing rgb lighting setup. I would recommend this keyboard for anyone who games or types a lot and does not find the click annoying. In my case i found the click it made very satisfying as I knew when I hit a key. The onboard usb hub is also a nice touch for those who want a usb port with easy access.
