Pros: -Looks like a hard drive
-Good value if it would always work
Cons: -Very unreliable service (it's a flip of a coin in terms of whether Windows/BIOS will recognize it during each boot). Sometimes it gets recognized and then "lost"
Other Thoughts: SATA cable is fine. POWER is fine. Tried a perfect working SATA and POWER for my other SSD that was previously powered. This is pure junk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI GK-601 Keyboard
Pros: First impressions of the keyboard: Definitely louder than a membrane based keyboard (highly recommend avoiding a mechanical keyboard purchase for the work). The LEDs are nice and bright, much better than my old Logitech G15. They keys are a bit more condensed than my G15- but definitely give the “full-sized” experience. The keyboard is also rather heavy, which I see as a good thing because you know it’s not going anywhere during long typing sessions.
Cons: The only con I can think of is that it's quite louder than a rubber-membrane based keyboard, but that's a well known fact for mechanical keyboards in general.
Other Thoughts: It definitely requires less energy to type than a membrane keyboard, I can easily see myself typing 2x more without getting tired than if I were using a traditional keyboard and I type at 110WPM.
If this is a home purchase, and you won’t be using your keyboard near anyone, then this is a terrific purchase! Definitely worth the money. I also recommend checking out some videos that go over the different types of mechanical switches used for these types of keyboards. It will give you a rough idea of how loud each type of switch keyboard is (I believe the blue-switch is the loudest, and the black switch is the quietest).
This review is from: ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Was able to easily load the chipset driver from disc, and boot windows. Motherboard is clearly labeled and color coded. User friendly BIOS, and SATA and mobo power sockets plug from above (for a quick and easy hook up)
Cons: the board is easy to bend, so be careful when installing your cpu cooler. Don't rest the board on your knee when screwing in cpu cooler brackets - u can break it.
Other Thoughts: This replaced a terrible $220 eVGA FTW paperweight I received from newegg. This board was almost a third of the price, and worked right away (see my review on the other one). GIGABYTE rocksREAD FULL REVIEW
