This review is from: Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard
Pros: The size of this keyboard isn't overly bulky or extremely crammed as some others I've used lately.
The functionality of the keys is perfect (requiring just the right amount of pressure in order to type) the keys aren't clunky when typing nor are they so easy to press making allowing for typing errors to occur frequently. The keys also have a good feel to them.
This board is back lit for those who wish to use their computer in the dark, I thought it was nice being able to adjust the sensitivity of the back light as well as the colors (Although there are only three to choose from).
I purchased this keyboard in Dec. of 2009 and it still works just as well as the day I purchased it.
Cons: The only "real" con that I can think of is that the flip tabs on the back on the keyboard that adjust the angle that it sits at while typing are fairly weak.
That is not to say that they will break from typing but if you have a son who "likes to show his frustration" then be advised a fist to the keyboard will break the tabs on the back. (Although the keyboard itself will take dozens of fist slams.)
I've noticed that some of the paint used to identify the keys is beginning to wear off (As any keyboard would with daily use since 2009.)
Other Thoughts: Not that anybody should have to say it in a review but remember that this is a wired keyboard, I thought I would throw this in because wireless tends to be almost universal today. (Wouldn't want anybody to miss that acknowledgement and become frustrated once the keyboard arrived at their home.)
I gave the keyboard 5 eggs because The Eclipse II is another great product just as The Eclipse was for me prior to purchasing The Eclipse II. The cons I typed above were all understandable to me and were written more as a disclaimer for those thinking about purchasing the keyboard than as an actual con.
Have never used a better keyboard.
This review is from: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Pros: The price.
Cons: Unfortunately there was no disclaimer saying this motherboard wouldn't work with the processor I purchased. It seems this motherboard isn't compatible with the AMD FX-4100. Other than that I'm sure it's great product, just can't use it.
Other Thoughts: If you're going to manufacture a motherboard, allow it to be compatible with the line of processors. Literally my FX-4100 is the only Zambezi that isn't compatible according to what an Asus rep told me. Which is extremely frustrating.READ FULL REVIEW
