This review is from: SteelSeries 64225 Black USB or PS/2 Wired Gaming 6Gv2 Keyboard
Pros: Where do I begin...? I'll just tell you that if it didn't work on my 2004 iMac, which it does, I'd be building a system for it. So I'm lucky in that it works, but I just need to tell you that after I tested this keyboard out at a major electronics store; I felt like I had seen the face of the patron saint for gamers.
Cons: None at all.
However, using the keyboard with an Apple computer:
It does need to be mentioned that the "Steelseries" button is not compatible with the Mac's "Apple" button.
The keyboard setup prompt may not recognize the keyboard, so just continue and click on the US Standard keyboard option.
Steelseries offers no drivers etc. for this keyboard operating on Apple systems but it works on my 2004 iMac so it should be compatible with more current systems.
Other Thoughts: After getting my group wiped in World of Warcraft, yes I am a tankn noob, I realized that this keyboard has a learning curve. The fact is, this keyboard is a break-up from that soft-gel feely touchy keyboard to a mechanical one.
I'd like to compare it to this: you trade in your compact commuter car that's missing a front headlight etc. for that brand new high-end factory-built sportscar of your dreams.
Consider buying this keyboard a serious upgrade to your gaming experience.
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced 1GB DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Memory for Apple Notebook Model 971504A
Pros: It works! I was very worried about this RAM not being compatible with my Mom's Apple iMac:
"About This Mac"
Mac OS X
Processor 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo
Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
on the Apple website the iMac model is a 2006 something in where I found out the iMac uses notebook RAM (lolz....)
Cons: No Cons because the hardware works. I was once again really worried that it wouldn't work. But, after reading these reviews, I confidently picked up the RAM, installed, and piece of cake. Immediate recognition.
Other Thoughts: Well, the factory issue from 2006 gives the iMac one stick of 512 MB ram, so, putting 2 sticks of these 1GB'rs basically gives you quadruple the capacity.
Just a note: I play WoW (yes, I admit it), and had to get rid of my previous PC. So, using the iMac as an alternative to dropping $1,200 for a new awesome build, I dropped $42.00 for this RAM upgrade. I came back to WoW on the Trial and had a Blizz call out that I may not have enough RAM to play; did it anywayz but was lagg'n out major in SW and Ogrimar. Popped this RAM in and I now can play in Azeroth without the serious choppiness (flying griff or bat to major city) lag. In terms of graphis processing, it's another story. Night Elf king was kitted into Ogr and it was a little choppy, but that's because there were 50+ toons pwning the beast AND, the iMac has a ATI Radeon x1600 GPU.
Dungeon que just came up...gotta roll ;-D
