Pros: Mostly modular, efficient, silent, adequate but not overstated packaging, moderate size, ample cable length. I would have to say my favorite feature would have to be, any modular plug, can plug into any socket. There are covers for each socket not in use. Modular cables are flat. Got it on sale.
Cons: None that I foresee, time will tell, some electronics prematurely fail, but the build quality seems top-notch. The colors at the ends of the different cables may bother some, all black would have been preferred. The hardwired cables are sleeved, not flat like the modular ones.
Other Thoughts: Some claim the need for 850-1000++ PSU's for high-end SLI/Crossfire overclocking. The idea is to have ample, stable, current; which I feel this unit would provide, particularly in the (even more) power efficient future. If you have an internally powered water cooling system, you will need a larger PSU for such a high-end dual GPU system. Best to keep your PSU as close to optimum load as you can, for power efficiency.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mad Catz MCB44026N0B2/04/1 V5 Keyboard
Pros: Not too big. Stylish, sleek design. Caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights are front and center, bright and hard to miss. The keystrokes are soft and quiet, not too sensitive or too hard to press. Feels sturdy, excellent wrist rest design. Nice software from the saitek site, allows for programming keys. Standard key layout, took no getting use to. No ghosting.
Wired, to hell with wireless!
Cons: LED's just scrape by on being acceptable. Much more light coming from around the keys, than through them. Lighting is also not even.
Though the board feels sturdy, if you take your finger and press on the lip, just below to space bar, while the feet are up, with the wrist guard off, the board does bend, freely; not and issue while in use. With the feet up and no wrist guard, the board is angled forward a bit too much.
Other Thoughts: I really like the look and feel of this keyboard. It types smooth, and quietly. This really seems to be the best low end, red led keyboard, for the price. If you don't want to spend 70++, this is an excellent choice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Clearly better air flow than stock HAF 922 fans, also quieter. Came with a 3pin to 4pin adapter. Deep red, not even close to orange.
Cons: One was DOA. The fan base was not secured, so the blades wobbled around inside the fan housing. Weak LED's, not even slightly bright. I would describe the lights as non-luminescent accents. Cheap silver screws.
Other Thoughts: For the price that I paid. I would say they are worth buying again. This is however my first DOA from newegg. I have a 200mm cooler master fan I will be buying to finish the fans for my HAF 922, if I have problems with it, time to move on from cooler master fans.
DOA aside, for 9-12$ this is a good fan to buy, if you like silence slightly more than raw performance, and like accent lights, more than brights.
