This review is from: SHARKOON 000SKSK Skiller Keyboard
Pros: It works
Cons: Skiller Keyboard Review
I have given this 2 stars because of the cosmetics. Within seconds of removing the keyboard from the box I was disappointed. The decals for the keys (the letters/numbers/etc) look as if they were put on by a child. I remember back to the days I made model cars and the ships of Star Trek. I had to first soak my decal in warm water to loosen it from its paper, and also dab some water on my ship to ensure an easy slid. The transparent edges would sometimes wrinkle and if you did not hurry they would dry and it would look cruddy. Some of these key decals look like that. One example that stands out the most is the number 9 on the number keypad; I took a close up photo. The second issue with cosmetics is there is a white film all over the black of the keyboard. Of course I have wiped some of it off, but in some areas it just comes right back. I am going to try and use some soft cleaning agents to see if I can remove it forever.
I was also disappointed with some of the custom options. No ALL keys can be programed and some of the native keys are just unneeded. I can make due, but I was hoping based on the manufactures description that ALL could be programed.
The feel is toyish, it is responsive but I have used other mechanical keyboards (I am an IT Tech-but not a rich one) and one of my business customers bought one and spent some good money and the feel of that is rich and tight. This keyboard feels cheap and toyish. Of course since I dropped the money for it I will use it because it is better than the big box junk keyboards, I hate those. One day I will buy a good mechanical keyboard but this keyboard is just not it and if I had it to do over knowing what I now know I would not have bought it, I would have saved my money and waited.
I am really disappointed about the cosmetic issues, but returning anything to Newegg is out of the question, return shipping will kill the benefit of a return. This is not what I was hoping or looking for
This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU SLV Aluminum 3.5" Silver IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Really nice case, super easy to install a HDD.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to explore several old IDE HDD's I had sitting around. None were worth keeping. I strongly recommend this brand if you have a need.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The camera does the job and makes backing up easier. Has a clear image and it makes you feel safer to see the unseen.
1) Most newer cars that do not come with a reverse camera DO NOT have a free hot tap. In my car the fuse box is under the hood and the battery is in the trunk. When I looked at the wiring schematic for my car every hot runs directly into the computer module system. The computer module has to identify any new hot tap. I ended up using the end from an unused male car power adapter and wiring that to the video power. It would make it an easier install of the manufacture would include the car plug power adapter, many can't tap into the hot leads of newer cars.
2) There is a line of dead pixels across the bottom of my screen. Since I only use it to back up it is not a deal breaker since return shipping would make it pointless. But the monitor (if tested) should have been rejected in inspection. Nevertheless it is a single line that does impair the function of the device.
Other Thoughts: These are easy installs, this was my second one to install. However they are time consuming. Set aside 2-4 hours depending on your skill level. Most of the time is used in routing cabling. If you attempt to install in a shorter time frame you will end up getting frustrated. So clear the time before you start.READ FULL REVIEW
