3 out of 5 eggs rollover 04/22/2013

This review is from: ROCCAT ROC-12-701 ISKU Keyboard

Pros: Bunch of features for gaming, extra mod keys. Software has worked OK for me on win8. Keys feel good with even pressure. Construction seems solid compared to other keyboards.

Cons: Use the board for MMOs and it has a rollover issue shift+WASD (any combo of 2) then 4 key causes the 4 to not be recognized, sort of a big deal when you have bindings to an action bar. Tested in word to confirm. It could just be the one I got as it passes the double shift spelling test.

Other Thoughts: Just for the money I expected to not have rollover issues. No other problems otherwise. Three eggs is mainly for the rollover.

2 out of 5 eggs Ok for office work, issues with MMO/FPS 12/14/2012

This review is from: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna

Pros: Very solid software package, Cabled Antenna is ideal for Desktops. Dual band. alot of settings to play with.

Cons: Have issues running on my new PC / Win8 build, seems to have issues running with my dlink on n and g mode at 2.4ghz (router does not have dual band). OK for emails / browsing, however when running MMO/FPS I get a solid 3-5 second lag spikes every 1 - 5 minutes. Did not have any issues with the router or ISP using my previous card so I'm pretty certain its the adapter.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if the issue is hardware or driver related but I have updated drivers a couple times. I've set power to max in both windows and the device properties. turned down roaming and have tweaked a couple settings on both the card and the router (forced N connection). watched windows Wifi activity and it just drops off completely during the latency event. Have tried different speed / g / n modes and the issue stays pretty constant. Not going to say don’t buy it, but i would recommend doing some more research if you play MMOs or other games where 3-5 second lag spikes is a deal breaker. I still have to double check the Ethernet only as it's quite an ordeal to switch its locations.
