This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)
Pros: I got the green edition even though my PC case fans are blue, because I like it better. Here's what I can say about the product so far after having it for a few days.
Keyboard: For anyone who owned one of those old school Dell keyboards back in the day, this keyboard feels EXACTLY like that. They keys are high and snap back with good responsiveness. They aren't overly soft or low profile, but I definitely like it. The Green LED is bright, but definitely needed because without it you can't see any of the letters on the keyboard. They went with a black on black scheme and I'm not really sure why, but I'd always keep it illuminated anyways. It also comes with the pause/play, skip, and rewind buttons which is great for things like iTunes, Spotify, etc while gaming, so you dont need to minimize etc.
Cons: Mouse: The mouse, I'm not a huge fan of. It's responsive don't get me wrong, and having a DPI button on the mouse is okay, but honestly it's just too low profile for me. I don't mind it not having any extra buttons..even though most gaming mouses now come with at least 1-2, but maybe I'm just used to logitech mice, but having no bump in the mouse means your constantly arching your hand with no support if you're like me. It's well illuminated, and not a bad mouse overall so I wouldn't dock an egg for it, I'd just warn people used to more hefty, bulkier mice that this one is very low profile and may cause some discomfort.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely worth the buy just for the keyboard alone. Especially for anyone who has been gaming for a long time and has had those older keyboards before companies like razer and steelseries started taking over the game :pREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The layout of the board certainly wasn't terrible. It's nice looking, and it was slightly smaller then my old AS rock board which fit nicer in my HAF92 case. Can't really comment on it much else seeing as how it came DOA :|. It was packaged well, looked nice and had a solid layout.
Cons: As stated; it came DOA. It happens I get it, my biggest worry here is My last MoBo before this was ASROCK as well, and that one had a sound issue with it's back ports from the start, and I was forced to always use my front headers for speakers and mic jacks. I didn't care that much because it was an easy workaround, but this is now 2/2 boards that had problems out of box with ASrock :(READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1) Feels sturdy and well built
2) Excellent Airflow..(HAF stands for High Air Flow for a reason)
3) Good size
4) Feels Cool even to the touch
5) Basically everything is customizable about this Case.
Cons: None at all.
Other Thoughts: I plan on putting a 200mm fan on the top for exhaust. and who knows, maybe ill swap out the front fan for a 200mm as well because it has fittings for a 200mm instead as well if you'd like.!
I removed the middle set of Bays and the SSD bay, just to free up more space, (not that I needed too!), and allow more airflow into the case. It keeps everything super cool, feels sturdy, and also it just looks nice. Not every case needs 15 glowing LED lights, this case uses its durability, customization, and good design to attract it's buyers. Trust me..if you're building a new machine or just want a new case..this is 100% worth it. This is my third overall personal build, and I work for a school in IT and work inside machines pretty often, and I'd love it if every machine I assembled and worked on from here on out had a HAF 912 for its casing!
