Pros: Comparing with non-mechanical keyboards:
1. feel much better to type on
2. less fatigue
3. better accuracy because of better feedback
4. Feels very solid and sturdy.
1. No numpad. allows positioning mouse close to the center. more comfortable and less strain on your shoulder. (If you are under 25, it's fine if you don't understand what I mean.)
Cons: Comparing with non-mechanical keyboards:
2. Higher overall height. This is a con if you like those flatter keyboards.
1. The font type is kind of ugly (or I should say unique.) Wish they had used more standard font.
Other Thoughts: This is not meant to be a comparison with other mechanical keyboards. But if you are still deciding whether you should purchase your first mechanic keyboards, hopefully this review will help you make up your mind. The cons I listed, as you can see, are only problems for a handful of people.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB Wireless Flash Memory Wireless Flash Memory Card Model EYE-FI-8PC
Pros: Never have connection issues or unexpected behaviors (e.g. not being able to send photos)
Transfer speed is within the quoted range of the specifications. No surprises.
Cons: Can only send photos to one phone OR one computer. Cannot change settings without using the proprietary USB card reader and a computer. Take a hit on battery life.
However, some of these just the limitations of the technology that Eye-Fi choose to use.
Other Thoughts: More pro and advanced consumer cameras start to offer wifi transfer function. Given the price, it's hard to see how this appears to the basic camera users. On the other hand, if your MILC or DSLR already sends photos by wifi, who do you need this? (unless, of course, this card works better and faster.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have no visible issues after approx. 1 month of use.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I have a OEM 3rd-gen i5 PC (thinkcentre) that takes 1600MHz DDR3. I wondered if these can run at 1600 with the motherboard and they cannot.
Here's the tip. Faster memories like this one (or most other 1600MHz CAS<=9) uses Intel XMP to specify the top speed. OEM (lenovo, Dell, HP) do not use motherboard that supports XMP. They can only run at 1333. Period.
If you absolutely have to have 1600MHz with your OEM pc, go for the slower ones at CAS=11. Those uses JEDEC speed tables for 800MHz (x2=1600) frequency. Your OEM pc supports that.
Why didn't I return if I can only run these at 1333? Because I feel it wouldn't make a big difference. I now run all my sticks at 1333/CAS=9 instead of 1600/CAS=11.
