GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming 6 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: this motherboard is absolutely beautiful and powerful. to be honest I usually use asus motherboards but I got this one and I think it great...I'm pretty set in my ways when it comes to motherboard manufacturers and components in general. but I'm not so set in my ways that I don't recognize a quality component when I see one, there are so many things on this board. I didn't think I would switch to ddr4 so soon but it works great i got this board and some 16 gb's ddr4 3200 mghz ram i bought an intel I5 6600k and a new gigabyte nividia gtx 970 g1 to match the board and this board installed easy and flawlessly as well as all the components. i swapped an amd rig to this intel so i already had the my ssd with os installed and case and power supply. but i was like a kid in a candy store, this board has the 2 m.2 slots i look forward to using once i get a couple M.2 ssd's to put on it. it also has the new usb 3.1 type c connector, 3 way sli, z170x chipset, gold plated audio connectors all the way around, my h100i fit great and this thing stays real cool. i am really happy i made the switch when i did, if your an intel guy or think you may want a new cpu i totally recommend this board and the asthetics are amazing it looks so good in my gaming rig all lit up and they do a great job of covering up the ugly parts of most boards and this thing just looks great

Cons: i can only think of one thing i wish was different about the board i wish ther were 2 x16 lanes for sli as it stands it goes x16,x8,x4 and i know the board could handle it, but i guess if you want that feature you have to buy the next one up

Other Thoughts: i have been an amd guy for a long time but with their lack of advancement for awhile now , i decided to switch to intel and this board made it pretty easy and I'm glad i did

WD 2TB My Passport X for Xbox One Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBCRM0020BBK-NESN

5 out of 5 eggs an absolute must for xbox owners 10/14/2015

This review is from: WD 2TB My Passport X for Xbox One Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBCRM0020BBK-NESN

Pros: the packaging is sturdy it took a minute to get it out of the packaging. the drive its self is sturdy an looks match the xbox one perfectly. I noticed the warranty card says one year but according to western digital its a 3 year warranty. anyway hooking up to the xbox was easy mine was already formatted for xbox...I also hooked it up to the pc and it formatted it for my pc ...the drive worked flawlessly and transferred files at usb 3.0 speeds...but it definitely is a must have for the xbox

Cons: transfers speeds seemed slower but reading my games from the drive was fast enough...although it works fine for the xbox I don't think it was really designed for the pc I think it can just be formatted to do so..the performance of the drive I would say is equal to a wd green drive which is not a high performance drive its mainly for storage but when gaming I would prefer to have a performance drive...and lastly I'm not sure if the warranty will be honored past the one year wd says its a three year but the package says 1 and in my experience they usually go buy the packaging

Other Thoughts: this drive is perfect for the xbox and that's really what they are advertising it for but if you want a pc drive I would go with one of their other offerings

SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

3 out of 5 eggs an awesome keyboard all around 09/29/2015

This review is from: SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: first thing I noticed it was packaged very well the box was super long though, there wasn't very much inside just the keyboard and a few extra keys and rubber risers to incline the board more if you choose which. I liked the risers because instead of the usual flip out ones you just pop the others off and replace with the longer ones, and also there was a warrenty guide but that was about it...th keyboard is very well built and not as heavy as most. its made of thick plastic and jet black very nice. the keys feel more like a dome and smooth and I noticed on the sides of the keys they arch up to help keep you finger centered, the space bar is massive but well placed I have yet to miss it while gaming. I like how it lights up almost any color any key and the light effects are easy to create, the software is easy to install from their site and use it took me a few minutes to figure a few things out but compared to other keyboard with this feature this one has been the easiest to do what I wanted so far and works with all of the steel series products that use the software, headsets, and mice etc. it has media keys and and l.e.d dimmer keys. I would definitely recommend this board if you like steel series and don't mind the cons

Cons: ok so on to cons and there are a few biggies for me number one is no dedicated media keys I like separate media keys on this keyboard you have an function keys with the steel series logo on it to use the media keys and light brightness up or down....I don't really like that I prefer a section of the board dedicated for those keys ...number 2 it doesn't have a wrist rest which I need they have one but you it cost $20 dollars plus $10 to ship on the steel series site also not available on newegg to which I find costly and for what this board cost should have came with it...it make sense to me....number 3 the keys are short sort of in between chiclette keys and full size they are about half the size it took my awhile to get used to I would have preferred a full size key and lastly a small detail it doesn't have have a windows lock if it does I haven't figured it out because this keyboard comes with absolutely no instructions what so ever not even on the site only software download instruction so based on these things I think for the price it could have been a way better keyboard than it is

Other Thoughts: honestly it the software is awesome which is usually the part that's lacking this keyboard has a lot of great features and the mechanical switch is one of the best I used so far and if the things I've listed in the cons does not matter to you this board is right up your alley but for the price and without these features I would not buy again
