SIIG JK-US0412-S1 USB Slim Aluminum Keyboard with Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs So far it's brilliant 02/22/2015

This review is from: SIIG JK-US0412-S1 USB Slim Aluminum Keyboard with Hub

Pros: Only had it a few days so reliability is still unknown.

Fantastic feel to the keys, absolutely precise and absolutely consistent.

Very high quality build, feels rock solid. Heavy enough.

A product has to really exceed my expectations to get 5 stars instead of 4. SIIG has definitely earned the 5.

Cons: Not a con, but as others have mentioned the blue LEDs for Num Lock/Caps Lock/Scroll Lock bleed over, so if the center LED is on (Caps lock) it looks like it's on "high beam" and the other two are on "low beam"

It's completely harmless but it does stand out as "less than perfect" on what otherwise looks and feels like perfectly precise hardware.

Personally I think they should lose the LEDs completely, they're antiques of limited or no use in the 21st century.

Other Thoughts: I'm one of those guys who literally had a large box full of the old IBM/Lexmark 101 key keyboards and got them rebuilt as needed until the compatibility issues got too annoying.

This is the first keyboard I've ever come across that's actually better than the old clacky IBM ones when it comes to typing speed an accuracy.

I've tried every keyboard I can find, been through several of the Logitech K800 (type well but extremely fragile and barely last a year) several other Logitechs (MK710, diNovo and others) and a DASKeyboard (ridiculously overpriced, squeaky, keys stick and very uncomfortable)

Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It worked for a few years.

Cons: I've bought 5 Antec Sonata cases so far. The Antec power supplies that I got with them all failed within 1-2 years.

I bought this as a replacement for one of those failed supplies. 3 years and it's dead.

A "Green" powersupply is one that lasts. It's not green in any sense of the term to be throwing these things away after only three years of use.

Other Thoughts: I still love the Antec cases, excellent quality, roomy, great to work with. Their power supplies are off my list though. I replaced this one with an older Seasonic unit that is still chugging along just fine.

Western Digital AV-GP WD10EURX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Plugged it into a Synology DS213air. Even sitting on a carpeted floor in a room with no air conditioning the temps never go above 84F even when the room is at 77F

Quiet, and I'm not sure if it's my imagination or not but it seems to spin up out of sleep mode very quickly.

Cons: None so far. Hopefully it lasts.
