Pros: An absolutely impressive projector combined with compact size make the PV150G a no-contest solution for home theater projection. HDMI & USB support provide plenty of output methods both directly from USB streaming devices, as well as display output from laptops, etc.
I expected to see some corners cut on picture quality and brightness, but to my surprise this little projector packs quite a punch. Even more impressive was the automatic keystoning feature which scales the image to correct aspect ratio when the projector is tilted/slanted. The PV150G perfectly handles angled projection and adjusts on-the-fly as you move or turn the projector to manipulate the image. In all scenarios it provided a clean, perfectly scaled image.
With both streamed USB video and direct display output from my PC, there was no quality loss, audio lag, or any other distortion. It handled everything I threw at it beautifully.
The image seemed perfectly well-lit, so there are no compromises being made to the lighting setup in the projector either.
Cons: Onboard speakers are quite disappointing, quality and volume are quite low. That's not too surprising given the compact size and external options. I won't punish the score for that since it's not designed to be an audio solution.
Given the projector's compact size, some of the buttons can be difficult to press especially with all of the cables hooked up. It may require a bit of finesse to properly handle.
Other Thoughts: No HDMI cable included, which could be problematic if you're short on cables. Make sure you have the necessary USB/HDMI cables for your setup!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
Pros: Incredibly solid construction, beautiful brushed metal finish. This is unquestionably one of the sturdiest keyboards I've ever laid hands on. It's not flimsy, it doesn't bend or rattle, there's no flexbility. It's rock solid, beautifully constructed, and definitely ready to handle your gaming hands!
Comes with plenty of cabling options, even some audio jacks, which are a great bonus, as well as a USB port. Really not something you would expect from a keyboard but it's always nice to be pleasantly surprised by your peripherals!
I enjoy the raised key style (as opposed to inlaid) for a cleaner, more accessible look. Includes a keycap puller, along with a set of red keycaps for gaming keys, incase you want to put emphasis on the most important keys.
The wristpad is very comfortable, and easily removable if you decide you don't want it.
Includes 6 programmable key macros, along with software to edit timings and other features. Overall they are very well-implemented, I setup several Windows shortcuts as well as hotkeys in World of Warcraft and everything worked flawlessly without any extra tampering required.
Cons: It can be quite large with all attachments and you might have trouble fitting it comfortably on your desk. But keep in mind all of the extras are removable, so you only need to keep the things that you want.
For my hands, it feels as though the keys sit a little too high off the board. It's just a personal issue though, after some adjustment I have no concerns about it.
Other Thoughts: A really fantastic gaming keyboard, a great alternative if you don't want the multi-color RGB model. Make sure you research the Cherry MX switches, as this keyboard uses MX Brown switches! They require medium pressure and have a tacticle 'click' feeling when pressed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful brushed finish on both the keyboard area and rear cover, gorgeous and crisp 1080p IPS display, backlights on each individual key with a controllable timer, and even the keys themselves feel fantastic. Easy to setup -- Just a few Windows 10 settings to configure (Your name, time zone, etc) and it's good to go! Included Toshiba software keeps all of the internal features up-to-date.
SSD showed 550 MB/s read and [only] 150 MB/s write, but for a mid-range laptop like this I wouldn't really expect much better.
Cons: Packaging seemed a bit bare. Only ONE included accessory: The charger cables. I also find the TouchPad to be a bit sensitive and clumsy; I frequently zoom in/out by accident without realizing it. Possibly just an issue with the way I rest my hands near the pad.
Other Thoughts: I really have nothing bad to say about this laptop. I love it. And now everyone in my family wants one, too!READ FULL REVIEW
