Pros: The key board is very compact and takes up much less desk space while still being full featured. The mouse is also of a smaller size but comfortable to use. RF range is good, can use the mouse and keyboard from across the room no problem. I purchased two of these over a year ago and both are still working the same as when I got them.
Cons: But just because they are still working doesn't mean they don't have issues. First is the problem with USB dongle (receiver) being susceptible to interference apparently from my wifi network. If I have the dongle plugged into a USB port in back of the computer next to the wifi antenna the mouse will stutter, that annoying delayed movement of the curser and the keyboard will delay type or missfire completely. I was close to returning both when I tried moving the dongle to a USB port in the front of the computers, that solved the problem but now it's hogging one of my two USB port which is lame.
Second is how fast the mouse goes through batteries. This seems to be an inconsistancy between one reviewer and another but for me, both of my mice go through at least a battery per month. I had a brick of 48 AA batteries a year ago and less than half are left. One keyboard is still on it's original set of batteries after a year so no issues there. Keyboard key action is not very positive, sort of mushy and unresponsive.
Other Thoughts: Bottom line for me is the the price vs what you get and I would say for what I paid, they were an okay value... BUT... if you rely on your keyboard and mouse for accuracy & productivity you would be wise to spend the extra and get better quality. I will be upgrading soon.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Silent Case Fan
Pros: Quality long running fans for a very reasonable price. Still running strong after more than a year. Got my rebate in about 8 weeks with no hassles.
Cons: Not exactly quiet... but can't really expect them to be when running 4 at a time at max speed.
Other Thoughts: You're not going to find a better deal on good functional basic black case fans, especially when you can get them on sale or with a rebate.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought 2 and both work except for noted below. The promo price was crazy cheap. Slow spinning quiet fans that move a lot of air when unobstructed... see other thoughts
Cons: One fan is absolutely true and spins perfect, the other has a wobble, not horrible but makes me wonder how long it will last... appears to be a manufacturing defect. The LED's are an odd pale blue that doesn't match my other fan's. Not really a negative unless that aspect is important to you.
Other Thoughts: This is not a common size fan and maybe even less common is a case that has mounting holes for it. I had to modify my case side panel (drilled holes) to mount it. The fan only spins at 600 rpm so does not draw air through a filter screen well and air flow is seriously reduced. This is an important consideration if you're like me and want to control the amount of dust allowed in the case. I will use this fan for now but looking for another option.READ FULL REVIEW
