Pros: -amazing beauty
-dual M.2
-lots of features
-good (not great) overclocking

Cons: -expensive
-lacks things you expect from a $250+ mobo
-no wifi
-no dual LAN
-no additional PCI accessory cards (for extra usb 2/3/3.1 ports, bluetooth, m.2, etc)
-below average bios
-not many USB ports in the back
-poor placement of connectors on mobo (no case fan connectors near the front, front sound panel connector is all the way in the back)
-I/O shield doesn't match the mobo (it's the generic red/black gaming color)
-M.2 port functionality is inherently broken. To use M.2 slots, you must activate "win 10 mode," but activating 10-mode disables some features, like the ability to boot most VGA cards, so it becomes a catch-22 loop. Can't use M.2 without win 10 mode, can't boot VGA card in win 10 mode.
-driver install program on the MSI CD hangs/freezes. This doesnt sound like a problem, but my LAN didn't work without a driver, and the driver CD crashed... so I had to jump through a dozen annoying, time-consuming hoops in order to get the driver

Other Thoughts: I bought this mobo mostly because it would look nice in my case. It definitely fulfills that desire.

Unfortunately, it really doesn't do anything that other mobos do for 50% of the price.

Of course one of the main reasons people would consider this board is the dual M.2... so MSI should have perfected that feature. They didn't. In fact it's borderline broken. If you want to install your OS on an M.2 raid array, you're in for a world of pain.

G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown with Gaming Keycaps
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -absolutely gorgeous
-ultra-heavy, durable feeling - wont slide around your desk
-metal construction
-easily customizable & programmable buttons
-super-bright LED (adjustable intensity)
-usb port
-headphone jack
-microphone jack
-includes a tool to remove keys for cleaning, replacement, etc
-metal scroll wheel for volume control (this is my favorite feature)
-LED indicator displaying volume
-windows-button locking key (so you cant accidentally press that annoying thing while in a game)
-excellent software that enables: remapping of every key, programming of every key, adjusting of poole-rate, adjusting of refresh rate, adjusting of accidental double-press delay, adjustable brightness, etc etc

Cons: It probably wont be a "shell-shocker" deal by the time you read this, so it's going to be more expensive than a standard keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I bought it on a whim and I'm absolutely thrilled with it overall. In fact, I like the look and feel of it so much that I bought the matching mouse.

I've never seen a better keyboard

2 out of 5 eggs looks cool. isnt durable 07/08/2016

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.7 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac

Pros: looks awesome
is nice and precise

Cons: -the scroll wheel broke after 1 year
-very difficult to keep clean due to all of the different corners, edges, etc
-never really liked the feel of it. of course, this is subjective, but it's much more comfortable and natural-feeling to guide around a simple, concave, smooth mouse. With all of its angles, sharp edges, empty spaces, crevices, cracks, etc... the RAT simply doen't feel nice in the palm.
-expensive

Other Thoughts: There's a reason why these things have a 1-year warranty.... that's exactly when they all break. Go read through the reviews. Many of them say "xxxxx part broke after 1 year."

Do yourself a favor... buy a $20 mouse. When it breaks (and it will - all mice do) just replace it. You can replace it 3 times and still have spent less than you will spend on one RAT that will break just as quickly.
