5 out of 5 eggs Great Software 05/15/2014

This review is from: Nero 2014

Pros: Great piece of software. I use it to burn HD home videos to bluray. They look and sound amazing. Also the software allowed me to great a great menu system designed around watching home videos.

Cons: I have to burn in two steps: first write the burnable disc image to a file on my hard-drive, then burn that image. If I try to have it transcode the .avi and burn it on it's own it almost always fails the burn step after 2-3 hours of transcoding, and has to start over(Brand new burner, very fast computer, reinstalled). If I split the two steps it never fails.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical MAC Gaming Keyboard– Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00383100-R3M1)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I did hours of research before purchasing my first mechanical keyboard and this was the clear winner. The price is reasonable, it has all the features, and it happens to be the best looking keyboard out there.

This is by far the best keyboard I have ever owned, and I have owned a few. I love typing on this thing. The keys feel and sound wonderful. It is a whole different typing experience. If you are a programmer this is worth every penny.

I was skeptical about the macros, but I am really enjoying them. I have one that types out a generic for loop and another to hit the weird hotkey combo to collapse all methods.

Oh and it looks amazing. It is just classy. The backlighting looks great coming through the keys and can go very bright. I usually keep it at a relatively low setting so as not to be distracting.

Works with both Mac and Windows.

Cons: The software.

I purchased the Mac version so it would be fully compatible and partly so I would not have a Windows symbol on my keyboard. After installing the driver about 10 keys stopped working. I uninstalled and now it works fine, but I can not use any of the macro features on my Mac.

What's more is I plugged the keyboard into my Windows gaming rig, installed the software, and everything worked fine.

I am extremely disappointed that I paid $20 extra for full Mac compatibility and didn't get it.

Other Thoughts: Fix your Mac software.
