This review is from: GIGABYTE GK-KM6150 Black USB Wired Standard Multimedia Keyboard & Mouse Combo
Pros: Cool look and design
Cons: horrible feel, cheap keys, and components, and just feels cheap.
Other Thoughts: You know one of those old junk keyboards that you used to buy at an unknown computer store for 9.99? The ones that were so ghetto, you just used them for basic needs? Well, this mouse/keyboard combo is 10 times worse than that. It feels so cheap, I have no words to describe how badly this product is.
I was really disappointed because I absolutely LOVE the design. I am a sucker for looks, and is why I even bought this combo.
The mouse is so bad, that it glides at SUPER SONIC FAST speeds. I went to CP and changed the settings to slowest, and even then it glides across the screen like it just visited 10 various dimensions and came back. It also feels non-responsive when clicking on things. For example, when I click on something I have to hold down the mouse in one place (at least it feels like it) while I click on an item and hold the button down for a few secs.
The keys on the keyboard feel CHEAP. It's really, really bad. They feel like within a year some of the keys will be flying off.
The ONLY good thing about this product is looks. But even looks can only get you so far.
I am disappointed, but can't say everyone would agree with me. I am sure some people find this combo neat and cozy.
Pros: The Look - I love the look, and tend to be very picky with monitors. there is lots of ugly HD tvs out there. and this aint one of them.
Low power consumption - I could BARELY feel any sort of heat when I put my hand on the back of the monitor. it's amazing. my old LG would be HOT after a few hours of use. This one feels like I jus turned it on.
HD - real nice picture quality.
Stuck pixel - this is both pro and a con. con because I had it, and pro because I was able to fix it. HERE IS HOW YOU FIX A DEAD/STUCK PIXEL BEFORE RETURNING THE MONITOR! 1) google "What is a dead pixel? (Tech Tips #55)" and watch the video, 2) get a program Dead Pixel Buddy, and follow directions in the video. massage the dead pixel for a few secs 1 mins at a time. 3) at some point it will go on and off, and disappear eventually.
HDMI - I love it. can connect to DVD, and use it as a regular tv.
Cons: Lack of speakers - this isnt even a con to me since most monitors have bad speakers.
Display light - not really a con either, but here is my beef with it. it is a VERY nice white dot that is hardly noticable when watching movies or using monitor. but when you put the computer to sleep or turn it off, it blinks periodicaly. I wish there was somehow a way to turn that blinking completely off in the display options, but there isnt.
Wobbly base - not a big deal at all, unless you have a 5+ earthquake.
Price - the price is a little high comparing to what other HD monitors go for. but this is one of those sayings "you get what you pay for".
Other Thoughts: it takes a really long time to find a good monitor nowadays, especially if you want HD. seems like companies don't put much emphasis on quality like they used to when it comes to screens. Maybe because there is so many of them? I dont know.
Great monitor. even cons arent really cons. I love it and am very happy with my order.
Thank you Gateway!
