Pros: While this thing worked, it served its purpose, backlit, a keyboard, extra keys on side for convienence. From there, its downhill.
Cons: After a year of use, this keyboard has started to qwerk up, starting with right shift+' not working to make "(left shift still works.) Now its slowly going from ;-a with right shift not capitalizing them. You can see why this can be annoying. I used right shift for the right side of the keys, now have to use left shift to compensate. Tried driver fix, nothing, all lowercase keys work, so it isn't the key itself, and right shift with any other line of keys works fine.
Other Thoughts: All in all, the keyboard is very, unusable now, due to the shift key becoming useless. I'm very disappointed, as I liked its design, and mechanical key feeling. I can't stand those new flat keys that is all the rage now, I like the resistance of the keys on this keyboard, thats why I bought it.
I would have tried out the cyborg keyboard, but I don't want to take another chance, I need a keyboard that is backlit and will last more than a single year, especially with the price I paid for this keyboard at the time: 79.99.
Pros: With my new system, These baddies score a 7.9 on WEI.
They defaulted to 9-9-9-28-1T, with a few tweaks, it was running at rated 8-8-8-24-2T. See other thoughts
Cons: The only con I can say about these is the inability to choose your heat spreader color for the same sticks. Blue is cool and all, but I prefer black.
Other Thoughts: In my new system:
Intel Core I5 2500k
2x4 GB of these.
I bought these a few months back with the shell shocker. Shockingly, they are now cheaper than what I bought em for. Figures. Ah well, was to be expected.
No regrets. Multi-tasking is a cinch.
This review is from: MSI Z68A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Amazing board for the price. Sports integrated RAID, AHCI mode for SATA devices(allows hot plugging.) Z68 Virtu Is nice to have.
This coupled with 8 gigs of lightning fast 1600 cl 8 memory, and an Intel Core I5 2500k, makes my old pc seem like it was standing still. 7.5/7.9/7.2/7.2/6.1
Cons: Not Really a con, but some people will find the boot beeping annoying. Its just signaling that there are USB devices plugged in, and the number of beeps is the number of devices. Nice, if your testing bad USB devices.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the purchase. My HDD which used to score a 5.9, was bumped up to 6.1 in AHCI mode opposed to IDE mode.READ FULL REVIEW
