IOGEAR GearPower White 11000 mAh Mobile Power Station GMP10K
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Power options so you can choose what your device will take.
-High Capacity
-Dual usb ports

Cons: -Doesn't support 3A

Other Thoughts: Got this about a month back because my constant phone gaming kills my battery. It has saved my life many times since then. My charge cable that it came with died after about 2 weeks, then again it is a pretty thin cable to begin with.

Octopus Keycaps and Keycap Puller for Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX switch, Character not Fade Eternally, Rubber Surface, Orange Color
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sticky, translucent

Cons: Don't fit properly

Other Thoughts: So I debated on giving this a 4 instead of a 3 but the keys don't fit and it was that much of a pain to get the suckers off my keyboard. Also I can't type well with them on here. Aside from that as a gamer it's nice that while occasionally I will remove my hand from my keyboard to say... drink, watch a cutscene, etc and I'm suddenly thrown back into action. It was nice to beable to find wasd just by the feel of the keys for once. Sure they are backlight compatible but I'd rather keep shooting.

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Board Layout is very good, especially in my prodigy case. I like the built in wifi and bluetooth although I never had a need to use it.

Cons: Asus support is a joke. I bought this board from a local retailer and when I opened the box the plastic piece had popped off and bent the pins on the board. Local retailer wouldn't take it back because of their policy on board damage so I had to send it in. Asus reflowed a new socket on their for me and got it back to me fairly quickly. I got to t-shoot the new board for about 5 hours before I realized the reflowed the bios battery with the board <.< flux was plastered all around the socket and it was just a mess. Board worked great for about 2 weeks though, then things slowly began to fail. First my usb 3 jumper then I had a gimicky stick of ram and the day after that started my pcie slot went out... So great that was a good month or 2 of use. Called Asus to setup and advance rma because the onboard graphics were still working and there was a better chance of me getting a new board that way... which is what I should have gotten in the first place. Any way it takes them about a 2 weeks to get me the replacement form then I wait another week for the board. Board came in with the plastic popped off the socket and more bent pins. Called Asus only to have them tell me they couldn't open an rma on that board until the other one was closed out, so I had to send that board back to them first. I said forget it shoved both boards and all the accessories they came with back in their original boxes, shoved them in the asus box and sent them both back to Asus to prevent a card charge. Wrote em a letter too. I'm done flipping the bill for the shipping on all of the Asus screw ups.

Other Thoughts: I'm thoroughly angered about this whole endeavor, shame on Asus for this shoddy support I've been receiving. People on the phone are great and polite and helpful but they have massive limitations pushed on them as to how they can help you.

3770k hasn't failed to disappoint me around every turn either, and I had low expectations to begin with. I miss my 8120. Can't wait for the new AMD designs to come out. I think after this I'm never going Intel or Asus again.
