This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: For starters, while I was in boxing this, I I realized how solid and sturdy this keyboard was. I actually had a laugh, because I knew if I had lost and pounded my fist on the keyboard that this keyboard would withstand my frustration. Like that would ever happen because I always win:-)
the braided cables is a really nice added feature but my other gaming keyboard didn't have. my prior keyboard for my gaming rig had a nice little LED / LCD screen, but I would rather have the colorful backlit keys.
With this keyboard the volume rocker control is properly placed so there are no mistakenly pushed keys.
The Grouping Keys are easily accessed to set the keys to be used for a mass attack.
They keys are easily pressed, but not too soft so you don't accidentally push one by brushing over the key.
Overall if you need a having keyboard this is the one. You get the high quality build that will last year's and the features that are needed for many games. StarCraft was what I'm into and this fits well for my needs.
Cons: NONE---can't ask for anything more.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a MUST HAVE for anyone that takes cooling your CPU seriously. No more bulky Heatsinks that are sucking up space from the appearance.
This is very quite.
The instructions for those that have never installed one on a CPU are really straight forward and to the point. Very nice pictures to show the steps in the instructions.
The radiator is HUGE and does its job with perfection. The CPU will run cool, even when overclocked.
Multiple CPU sockets will work with this cooler. (Mine was an Intel i7 980X Socket LGA1366 - Oldy but Goody)
Corsair link allow for a really cool option to customize the LED color based on a few factors. In my case, I had it set to turn red when it was getting to a set temperature and blue when it was under the temperature to show it was cool. Great cosmetic appearance for the inside of my HAF932 case.
The tool free mounting is one of my favorites, I hate using tools to get these mounted, this just makes it so much easier to mount and to me was about 90-75% faster.
Per Corsair, this has a 5 yr warranty. I know NewEgg shows 2 on the warranty part for this product, but if you to the online portion of Corsairs website and also look at the information provided (its on the box too), you get 5 yrs for the Hydro Series. 2yrs may be for the fan but not the radiator.
Cons: None, the product works and works well.
Never a disappointment with Corsair products.
Other Thoughts: I have had many Corsair products that are self-contained cooling units, this one by far exceeded my expectations.
Newegg shows a 2 yr warranty when this is clearly a 5 yr warranty. Its on the Corsair website and also shows right on the box and the materials inside the box.

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-824DRU AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router with StreamBoost Technology
Pros: This router is set to be protected for the user that is not a pro at setting the routers up. Having a pre-encrypted WI-FI password is a great idea, as many only have general settings, this takes the complications away from being secure with no setup knowledge.
4- Gigabit ports is a huge plus. Allows for great connected devices that need high bandwidth without requiring a switch.
Intelligent Traffic shaping allows for a great way to have traffic move through the network and being prioritized for little to no latency while playing online games.
The StreamBoost does a great way of prioritizing so you do not have any buffering for YouTube. My son was happy that there was no starting and stopping while streaming HD content while the rest of the house was doing the same.
The graphical user interface (GUI) is really friendly and gives you all the details at a glance without the need to have any knowledge of a network background. The real time traffic monitoring is a nice feature and I would love to see this in all devices, TRENDnet has this one down pat. Props to them!
Setup was simple and easy right from unboxing. In under 5 minutes you are good to go for a custom Wi-Fi SSID and custom password.
AC is really nice and fast if you have devices that take advantage of this technology.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this for anyone that is looking for a solid router with the latest technology to prevent lag on devices that need HD streaming or gaming with low latency. This is priced to move and will sell fast as this device meets the strong demand of streaming and file transfers for multiple devices. The only thing I wish was that this router had 2 USB ports.READ FULL REVIEW
