Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000BR with Cherry MX Brown Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Garbage quality. Again. 11/23/2013

This review is from: Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000BR with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: None. Was saving it for a build I was doing. Dead within 3 days. What a waste of money. Second Rosewill keyboard this has happened to.

Cons: No pros.

Mini USB contact broke within 3 days of use. Opened it up and tried the super glue mod to get the contacts to touch but no dice. Looks like the problem is more severe than that.

Looking at the circuit board shows a bad re-solder job: looks like the contact was re-soldered BADLY. I've ordered the version with Cherry Reds before, and this same problem happened though I was able to fix it. Looks like this one is just dead though.

Ugh.

MSI N9600GT-T2D512 OC GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None.

Cons: Don't buy this card. I've been having intermittent problems with this thing ever since I got it. Usually you can attribute crashes to the fault of the application, or memory, but in this case its definitely this card.

I get multiple 'black screens' at intermittent times where the card simply fails to output a video signal and the audio goes into a loop. You can google this card (9600 GT) and 'problems' if you want and see that there is a fairly large bug associated with it. I stuck with it because it happened rarely, but don't be fooled- it gets progressively worse until this thing is basically a brick.

Wish I had the sense to avoid this thing before I bought it.

Antec 77094 Slot Case Cooling Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Noisy, Terrible Fan 02/28/2007

This review is from: Antec 77094 Slot Case Cooling Fan

Pros: While it worked, it pushed out quite a lot of air.

Cons: Noisy, shoddy construction, should have been 5$ cheaper with the kind of materials they used. Lied about 28dB- no way is this thing that quiet.

Other Thoughts: I used this thing to try help cool down my video card. I own an antec power supply and 2 antec 120mm fans rated at around 30dB on 5V, and this was BY FAR the loudest fan in my case. I was shocked- for 8$ I could have gotten 2 of these pci-slot coolers but I chose this one because I never had a problem with antec.

This thing was screaming by comparison to the other fans (although I admit I built my comp for silence). The worse part was it only lasted about a month before it started vibrating and grinding horrendously from a bad ball bearing and I had to take it out of my case. When I took it apart I realized that the fan itself was just plain BADLY made. I was pretty disappointed with it, especially since I thought the extra 4$ or so from the other comparable fans would have made it quieter or with a higher quality.

If you're thinking about slot coolers, buy another one- either the cheaper ones, or the slight more expensive ones with a built in speed control.
