This review is from: ASUS Z170-P D3 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Stable, overclocks well, low price.
Cons: The board technically supports 1.5v DDR3 RAM, but Intel has stated that you can and will permanently damage the internal memory controller on the Skylake chip if you use RAM at that voltage. If your intention was to buy this board and reuse the existing DDR3 RAM from your previous build, you should consider buying DDR3L RAM or just taking the plunge and going for DDR4.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Backlighting is subtle and awesome looking. Brown switches feel nice to type on. Overall, feels like a quality keyboard and built well.
Cons: 1) I'm very reliant on the function keys of my keyboard. While this has them, they placed poorly along F1-F7, while the Fn key is all the way on the right hand side of the keyboard. This layout forces you to hold Fn with your right hand and to hit the function key of your choice with your left hand.
The previous keyboard I came from had the commonly used media keys on F9-F12, allowing you to hold the function key with your thumb and to easily press the media keys with your index finger.
2) The numlock/caplock/scroll lock lights are incredibly bright if you're looking straight down at the keyboard. If you're reclined back in a chair and viewing the keyboard from an angle then it's not a problem, but for anyone sitting with proper posture looking straight down, you're in for a blinding experience.
3) I also find my pinky rubbing against the corner of the Left Control key and find it to be pretty frustrating and uncomfortable. I'm going to need to force myself to key my idle pinky someplace else.
This review is from: Shark NV22L Navigator Upright Vacuum
Pros: Picks up things my last didn't, brush shuts itself off if something gets caught in it...which is very good for me since I have a cheap carpet where strands sometimes get pulled up. Shark could get away with selling this for over $400, that's how good it is. Cup is extremely easy to empty out without making a mess all over.
Cons: Somewhat small cup, but even in my house where I have 5 cats and a dog, I can do two rooms before needing to empty it.
Other Thoughts: I am a 27 year old guy who bought this as a Mother's Day gift, men are supposed to get excited over sports...not vacuums, but I can't help it with such a great item.READ FULL REVIEW
