Rosewill Apollo RK-9100xR Red Backlit Mechanical Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Some good, some bad 12/13/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo RK-9100xR Red Backlit Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Price - The main reason I chose this specific keyboard. Got it on sale plus used a discount code, was one of the cheapest keyboards I found with backlighting and true Cherry Blues.

Backlit, with on the fly adjustable brightness

Built in USB hub

Wrist rest

True Cherry mechanical switches

Size - Many "gaming" keyboards are larger as they have added macro keys down the side, this is the size of a standard keyboard with a number pad.

Spare multi-color key caps with a key cap remover.

Cons: Construction quality - The wrist rest is kind of flimsy and there's a rough seam around the edge of the keyboard. It also has a cheap plastic feeling that my old keyboard (Das Keyboard) didn't have.

Software - I wasn't to crazy about it, ended up just installing it.

Power on lag, can't get into BIOS - My main concern, as even though it's plugged into the same port as my old keyboard, the Apollo takes so long to "boot" my computer is already already at the Windows loading screen, so I'll have to pull out my old keyboard if I need to do anything in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I was using a Das Keyboard with Cherry Browns, but decided I wanted to give Blues a try and also wanted to switch back over to a backlit keyboard. The 9100xR had the features I wanted - backlit, wrist rest, and Cherry Blues - while still having the features I liked from the Das Keyboard - a built in USB hub and multimedia keys.

But it has some downsides. The construction quality, "Meh" software, and long power-on times aren't something I'd expect from a keyboard with a normal price of $150.

SONY SS-B1000 120W Bookshelf Speakers Pair
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Decent speakers for the price 10/29/2014

This review is from: SONY SS-B1000 120W Bookshelf Speakers Pair

Pros: Condition - If it weren't for a sticker on the back and the plain cardboard box they arrived in, I would have sworn I got new speakers instead of refurbs, The cabinets and screens are unmarked and after several days of (light) use they work.

Sound quality for the price - I got these primarily for my computer for when I don't feel like wearing headphones. For $45 plus a small $25 desktop amp, these sound better than most if not all of the sub-$100 PC/Desktop speakers I've heard.

Size - While I've had smaller "satellite" speakers, these are probably the smallest actual bookshelf speakers I've owned.

Cons: Sound quality in general - While I've also listed sound quality as a pro, that's only because Newegg doesn't have a "Meh" section. I'm no audiophile, but I can confirm what others are saying. Bass is on the boomier side and mids are faded, resulting in an almost hollow sound. Then again, I'm comparing them to my other set of bookshelfs I have set up to my TV - a set of Infinity Primus P163s, and while still considered "entry level", one speaker costs as much as this set does new.

Weight - While this can be seen as a pro if you're moving them frequently and not a direct problem for me as I don't blast them, but they are light enough that it may be a problem. If you were to put the rated 120w through them I wouldn't be surprised if it resulted in audible bouncing/vibration.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, with a small, cheap amp these make a good set of PC speakers. Would I spend the $80-$90 that most places are selling the new sets for? Probably not. But for $45, they're good "toss them anywhere" speakers.

COBY Kyros (MID7012-4) 7.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap - $10 after rebate. Nice, as even if I didn't like the tablet, it came with $10 worth of accessories (cover, USB OTG cable, power adapter, etc.)

Better than expected response time - I had really really low expectations. While there's some lag, it's not as bad as I thought. Page load times are OK, boot time isn't terrible.

MicroSD card slot

USB OTG

Cons: First time charging I thought it came with a faulty battery or charging circuit. After an hour or two of charging (it won't charge over USB for some reason), it would say 100% battery life, but the battery would drain in 5-10 minutes. However, after leaving it plugged in over night, it now seems to be working as intended

What can be gotten from other reviews:

Google Play needs to be installed separate

4GB of storage is just enough for Android itself, there's just over 200MB free storage stock

Resistive touch screen isn't as fine tuned as a capacitive screen, but works
