This review is from: Vivo STAND-V002 Dual LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand Adjustable, Fits 2 Screens 13"-27"
Pros: I have not found one real issue with this monitor stand. It's well-made, solid and holds my two monitors perfectly, at the right angle and exactly where I want them. The instructions were clear and assembling it and installing the monitors were a snap. The arms are sturdy and my monitors exhibit no sagging.
Cons: This is a nit. It would really have been nice if the screws to secure the VESA mounts to the monitors were black like all other parts were.
Other Thoughts: I was hesitant to get this monitor stand, since many at much higher prices were rated so low - but I thought that at $42 I could take a gamble. It paid off. This monitor stand is the bees' knees.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA GamesterGear PC200 PC Wired Gaming Headset with Detachable Mic
Pros: They were cheap - on special sale at Newegg. The braided cable is nice.
Cons: I find them much heavier than my previous pair (that a new puppy chewed the leads off). I think wearing them for extended periods of time may be a strain.
The microphone is fiddly, since it is removable. Either it is attached and sticks out or you take it off and hope it doesn't get lost? My previous pair had a swivel microphone that could swivel out of the way.
The earphones come with a braided cable, ut requires an additional extension cable to split the cable up into the separate cables for mic and earphones. The extra cable looks like all other electronic cables - not braided.
The biggest con is that the mic and earphone cables are not clearly marked. I had to look at the instruction manual to figure out that the microphone was the light gray plug and the earphones the black plug.
Other Thoughts: All in I'm not thrilled, but I did practically no research and just bought these on sale at Newegg. I might return them, since my return shipping is free and I pay no RMA costs (Yay Newegg Premium), but otherwise I'd probably not use them and just recycle them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price. Replaceable keys for gaming.
Cons: The most important thing in a keyboard is obviously the keys. This is where the Skiller fails regrettably. THe keys are mushy - much more so than my other rubber-dome keyboards, and almost impossible to use when transferring from a mechanical keyboard. Especially disappointing is the fact that the WASD keys seem "softer" than the rest of the keys. I am never sure whether I've actually pressed them or not and I'm always slightly surprised when I see a reaction to me having pressed one of these keys.
Other Thoughts: There are blue, "softer", more rubbery feel keys for the WASD and arrow keys, but they really don't feel nice and I don't like the tactile sensation.
Weirdly, in the middle of the palm rest, they put a blue LED logo - that's the only part of the keyboard that lights up. But it's somewhat distracting since it's right between my hands, and just about where my eyes always catch it.
I'd have sent it back, but for $20 it's not worth it. I'll just junk it.
