Perixx PX-1100 Backlit Gaming Keyboard - Red/Blue/Purple Illuminated Keys
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good as a Non-Mech KBD 02/06/2015

This review is from: Perixx PX-1100 Backlit Gaming Keyboard - Red/Blue/Purple Illuminated Keys

Pros: -good feedback for a membrane kbd
-good onboard lighting controls
-media buttons
-sturdy chassis
-adjustable wristrest
-good sturdy feet
-key labels themselves show no signs of wear after a year.

Cons: -space bar gets loose after a year of use. not enough to take off an egg, but close.
-lighting seems dimmer than it used to be
-dust is super visible on it
-If you're used to a mechanical keyboard, it feels like typing with mashed potatoes for a keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Overall, for the price it's pretty solid. Not K70 solid, but easily the most solid membrane board I've ever used. Great for what you pay for.

1ST PC CORP. FC-FANATIC-B Lamptron 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this when my NZXT Sentry Mesh dropped a channel.
-Freakin' sturdy. Upon opening the box and pulling it out, I was blown away. This thing is easily the sturdiest PC part I've ever seen or felt. You could probably bash it from the front a few times with a rock and you might chip some paint, but that's about it.
-Quality switches. The faders on the NZXT always felt cheap. The switches on the Lamptron are like the Terry Crews of switches. POWERRRRRRRRR
-60W - lots of power. I run 10 fans on this thing without any problems. Like Jeremy Clarkson says - POWER!

Cons: -Typically doesn't make me breakfast
-Awkward to install - it's just really heavy for a fan controller. Not nearly enough to even think about taking off an egg.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a no-frills fan controller with a lot of power, this is what you want. You only get two settings, but they seem to be in good "sweet spots".

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Cheap
-Powerful enough to power this rig:
AMD FX-8350 - 4.4ghz
MSI R9-280
Gigabyte GA-970-D3P
16 GB Corsair vengeance LP
1x500GB HDD
plus a slew of fans and a huge 60W fan controller

So far it hasn't given me any reason to doubt its future performance. I'm about to subtract a lot of fans, an SSD, and add an H100i. As it is, it's been very reliable. Once I get the rest of my rig filled out we'll see how long it lasts.

Cons: -Not fully modular. I knew this when I bought it, but it complicates things in a microatx or mid tower case if you have a fan right in front of it. Wasn't a surprise to me, so no eggs off.
-Not 80 plus certified. Once again, I knew this when I bought it so no eggs lost.
-Doesn't make me breakfast.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's probably the best $65 part I've put in my rig so far. It hasn't failed me yet and I hope it doesn't. I've seen a lot of bad reviews for this thing, but it's done good for me so far.
