This review is from: Cyborg V.5 Keyboard
Pros: Same design as the seitek cyborg and appears to be nearly identical.
Cons: The surface of the keys are different, the old keyboard had a slight texture to the keys. Also, the feel of the keys when depressed is not the same. More click to the old board. This is my 3rd generation of this keyboard. I am not sold on MADCATZ version yet.
Other Thoughts: More to come, I will fill in more as I find out how it preforms after some more heavy use.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T40 Series II 32 watts RMS 2.0 Speakers
Pros: Build quality is better than average, these are very nice looking elegant 2.0 speakers.
Easy setup, controls, and ...well... sound.
Cons: NO SUB! (read comments below)
Sharp highs out the box. (read below)
Other Thoughts: I won't lie, price/looks of these speakers got me. But these are actually really nice little speakers. I have a audiophile for a father and he passed me the bug. You haven't heard music until you have heard it through $200k+ speakers... Unbelievable. But us mortals should aim for the best sound for the space and get as much bang for the buck as possible. For computer speakers, think of these as a miniature set of floor standing towers. Set them equal distances from your ears and be prepared to experience a very nice sound stage.
No sub - If you are looking for a big bass, get a nice 2.1 set. The lack of a sub will not be enough for being a house party DJ with itunes. With that said, 2.0 for computer speakers is sufficient and best of all saves on wire clutter and space in a already cramped space. :)
Sharp highs - These speakers have a "break-in period". I hear as long as 100 hours, but I can say that within minutes the highs naturally started to smooth out a bit. Also, the treble/bass controls can easily be used to compensate for this. Each space is different and require unique tuning. My room has a very bright/reflective personality, this may have some to do with the sharpness in the sound.
Using MJ - Bad to break them in. There are plenty of points that hit the highs/bass that will help in tuning. Try to listen through for specific points in your track list that hit those real sharp highs or dull lows and replay through them with different settings till your happy. Be careful with that bass switch though, these are musical speakers. :)
Bottom line: Great set of DESKTOP speakers. More than enough quality for 99% of users. The bass is plenty for anyone not looking for a rumble. Oh yeah, "Once you know, you Newegg." Thanks again for yet another wonderful shopping experience Newegg!
Pros: Pretty much everything but the lack of DVI connection.
Great black levels
Quick response time
Everything you can ask for in a monitor
Newegg excellence as usual. Literally THE best place to buy electronics and computer gear.
GREAT customer service, check.
FAST shipping, check. 3day -> 1 day in socal
INFORMATIVE, check. No where better to learn what to buy and what not to buy
CHEAP, check. You will struggle to find a better price elsewhere. If you do, wouldn't you rather support newegg and it's huge community base as well as have the peace of mind that you will get from their great customer service?
Cons: No DVI connection, with converters (or hdmi output from your video card) this is a non issue. Soon ill be upgrading to a mini display port video card so this is no real reason to drop an egg.
Other Thoughts: I never write reviews but after all the time and research put into this buy I figured I would do my part to help the community.
No DVI connection, luckily for me I had extra HDMI cables lying around. Although, needed adapters ($5 each) for the dual monitor setup on my 4850. Literally plug-n-play otherwise. I am coming from a 32" 720p TV with 60hz refresh. Day and night difference for my gaming and having two screens is amazing for gaming and surfing Literally no complaints.
If i wanted to nitpick i could say the touch sensitive buttons are a little strange i prefer physical buttons and sure it could have a nice stand that is fully adjustable but that is really unnecessary for me and probably most buyers.
Buy this monitor, you will not be disappointed. I promise! ;)
