This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit Red LED, Cherry MX Speed
Pros: 1. Mechanical Cherry MX Switches.
2. Individual key lighting.
3. Robust Software Suite.
4. Strobe lighting effect.
5. Nice, tactile feedback but also soft and comfortable.
6. Very good handling in FPS type games (since I got this keyboard I have put down my XBOX ONE Controller).
7. Programmable interface.
8. 4 BIOS/Key settings
9. Corsair Brand
10. Price (for what it does the price is phenomenal)
11. Included Wrist Rest (makes a difference with typing)
12. Textured space bar.
13. USB Passthrough
14. THICK, Braided cable.
15. Long cabling.
Cons: I wish it had lower lighting settings and also that the keys weren't so slick.
Also, I keep accidentally hitting the F11 key (lol) not knocking it, just stating takes some getting used to.
Other Thoughts: I have never owned my own gaming keyboard before but I have played with Razer, Logitech, and ROCCAT (I love ROCCAT) and this is the best I have ever used. The tactile feedback is perfect and not too loud. I can type fairly well even though the keys are a tad slick for me. I love the included key pulled and swappable WASD, QWERTY keys you can swap out.
The software download is fantastic and offers a lot of options.
Best of all, it has media controls, windows keys, and also offers USB PASSTHROUGH!
On top of that it has a thick, braided and long USB cable that allows you freedom.
DEFINITELY PICK THIS UP!!!
This review is from: LINKSYS WUSB6100M Next-Gen AC AC600 Mu-Mimo USB Adapter
Pros: 1. Low Price
2. Easy Setup (other thoughts)
3. Plug and Play Connectivity
4. Great 5 GHz/2.4 GHz speeds
5. Terrific range
6. Small and unobtrusive.
7. USB 3.0/2.0
Cons: 1. AC 600
Other Thoughts: This is a great piece of kit. It connected seamlessly with my Linksys EA 8500 MAX MU-MIMO AC 2600 Router. 5 GHz Speed Tests through Charter 60 Mbps - 63 Mbps / 2.4 GHz 47 Mbps. Terrific throughput and low latency. Only issue I had was I had to use the CD Software to install the adapter as the Lenovo Win 10 didn't automatically recognize it. Other issue I had was I had to disconnect/reconnect the USB adapter after initial install for it to be recognized. this is a terrific product and at under $60.00 is a terrific investment - wish it was AC 1200 for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fully Modular
Easy to read connections
Easily labeled cabling
Included Zip Ties
Beefy Power Supply
Near Silent Operation
Individually Sleeved and Heat-Shrink Cables
Great Low Noise Fan
Contains all the bells and whistles a top power supply should have
Cons: The 8 PIN CPU Cable may not reach in all cases
Longer than my other PSU (NZXT Hale 90 750W)
Other Thoughts: This is a great PSU by Corsair which continues to hit home runs. It is fully modular and very efficient. Corsair tends to go with Seasonic as the OEM for their PSUs (though this may either be CWT or FSP - haven't checked) and tend to under-rate the wattage and efficiency they can handle (gold can typically run at platinum, silver at gold, etc). This thing is nearly silent and allowed me to run 2 XFX HD 6870s in XFIRE, OCZ ARC 480 SSD, Samsung 850 EVO 128 SSD, 4 TB WD Black, 2 TB WD Black, AMD FX 6100 OC to 4.4 GHz, as well as a LG Blu-Ray Write and Lite ON DVD Burner with room to spare. I also haven't gotten any BSODs which I believe my NZXT was giving me due to lower amperage (to be fair I have had that power supply for 4+ years).
I can't recommend Corsair enough - everything they make is GOLD!
