This review is from: Corsair CH-9000069-NA/RF K70 Gaming Keyboard with Red LED, Cherry MX Red
Pros: -Very sturdy keyboard. The first thing I noticed was how heavy and solid this thing was.
-Nice polished metal finish, gives this keyboard a flashy look.
-This model has red LED's behind every key, with a utility button at the top of the keyboard, which changes the brightness setting between off, low, medium, and high. There is another key that turns all lights off except for wasd, 1-6, and the arrow keys.
-Has a windows lock key, this doesn't lock windows but locks the windows key so you don't accidentally press it while playing games.
-Come with Textured wasd, 1-6, and arrow keys that have a rubberized bumpy texture and are colored red. The backlight also shines brighter on these keys. These keys are also tapered at certain parts to prevent your fingers from slipping off. (for example the A key has a higher left than right side, and the D key has a higher right side than left.)
-The palm rest. I wasn't personally a fan of the palm rest, but I can see why others would like it. It just didn't fit well with my current set up.
-A USB port on the very top of the keyboard. I haven't found a use for it, but I suppose you could plug your mouse or something into it. Unfortunately results in the keyboard requiring two USB ports on your computer, but for most this shouldn't be a problem.
-Beautiful braided wires.
-Neato Corsair logo at the top
-Rubber legs so it doesn't slide around on your desk (they work a lot better than I expected)
Cons: -When I first received this both space bar stabilizers were broken, but that's just the risk you run with a refurbished product. I requested replacement, shipped it back for free and received a 100% functional replacement.
-Loud typing, but that is expected from a cherry MX Red switches.
Other Thoughts: -Great keyboard if you're tired of your old $1 salvation army keyboard.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great drive, easily set up and a great slave drive.
Covers all my possible needs.
Cons: First drive arrived DOA. Not anyone's fault, it happens. Easily shipped back and replaced free of charge.
Other Thoughts: I often see people complaining about DOA hard drives, please remember you are buying a HARD DISK DRIVE. They aren't the most reliable form of storage, and they will from time to time be DOA. Most likely no one mishandled it, and newegg will ALWAYS accept DOA drives and replace them free of charge. Not a valid reason to give an item a bad review.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Wonderful case. Plenty of fans, a nice fan controller, a ton of room, you can't go wrong here. I love everything about this case (except it attracts animal hair, mostly the front and top bezel).
Cons: This was my first time setting up a fan controller, so I was a little bit out of the loop. I think that I was just over-complicating it, and the manual was under-complicating it. The manual does not include anything other than a diagram (which is a little bit hard to follow) on how this fan controller is set up. Also, the lights on the front won't light up if that fan isn't connected. This case showed up without the top 200mm fan. I looked through the reviews, and it seems no one else had this problem. It just, didn't have one. There were no signs of intrusion on the box, nor did the case look like anything had happened to it since the factory, so I am skeptical as to how it wound up without a fan. I contacted NZXT support, and they hooked me up with a fan no problem. The first business day I got a reply back, and they were more than happy to help.
My last complaint, this case does not have a 3.5 inch accessory bay on the front bezel. It only has 5.25 inch (five of them), but it is not that big of a deal. You can easily purchase an adapter that converts 5.25 inch to 3.5 inch for no more than $10, and have it shipped with your case.
Other Thoughts: Well thought out case. I am happy with this product.READ FULL REVIEW
