Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic Keyboard 09/21/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown

Pros: The keyboard is incredibly sturdy and feels well-built. The keycaps also seem to be pretty capable of handling heavy use, and I haven't seen any wear as of yet. The volume wheel feels smooth, solid, and has a good amount of resistance. Conveniently, there's a mute toggle button next to it. The other media keys are neatly organized above the keypad and are very sturdy-feeling as well.

Each key LED can be individually controlled through the software, and the lighting behavior has a lot of customization itself. I can even set the brightness levels for each brightness state and individual keys.
I can store TONS of profiles on the keyboard and use a key (I set mine to the right-hand Windows key) to cycle through them.

Cons: The only con I have for this keyboard is that there's no pass-through USB on the side of the keyboard. Not a deal-breaker, but it is something that can be very convenient.

Other Thoughts: Corsair Support seems to work pretty fast, so if you have any issues they quickly respond to tickets.

I have yet to see any paint come off nor wear out anywhere, especially in WASD area, so it seems a lot more resilient than what I've owned in the past.

The software is a little unintuitive and could use some work to improve user experience. However, it allows for quite a lot of customization and I am happy with that.

4 out of 5 eggs A Fast, Cost-Effective SSD, Cloning Software Not Included 09/01/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP480GBSS3S55S25

Pros: This is a really cost-effective entry-level SSD. Installation was typical for small drives. I used this as a secondary drive to store encoded media on. The performance is pretty respectable, and I was getting 440MB/sec write and 450MB/sec read at 256K chunks, reaching as high as 460MB/sec write and 500MB/sec read. Pretty good for a budget SSD. It comes with a 3 year warranty in case something goes wrong, but I haven't run across any issues whatsoever in the first month of use.

Cons: Cloning software not included, so there's potentially an extra cost needed if trying to clone another drive rather than starting from scratch. It also does not come with a mounting bracket that will be necessary if fitting this into a 3.5" HDD slot.

Other Thoughts: Comes in sealed clam-shell plastic packaging. You will need scissors or a sharp object to open it.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The performance difference over an HDD is incredible. This is an awesome entry-level SSD. It has a 3-year warranty which is pretty good. I've only had the drive for one month so far but there are no issues whatsoever yet. At 240GB, this makes for a good primary boot drive with room for some of your most-important tools.

With Windows 10 up to date, booting up took only a few seconds. So fast that I don't think twice about shutting down my computer, knowing that I don't have to wait a while for everything to start up.

Cons: Cloning software not included, so there's potentially an extra cost needed if trying to clone another drive rather than starting from scratch. It also does not come with a mounting bracket that will be necessary if fitting this into a 3.5" HDD slot.

Other Thoughts: It's not the fastest out there, but it's very cost-effective. Its performance is respectable and a lot better than drives that came out a few years ago. As with all drives, it's good to schedule backups in case they die on you. Do that and you can be worry-free enjoying the speed!
