This review is from: Intel Gift
Pros: Comes with a great processor!
Cons: The processor (in this case an i7-5820K) is billed as two distinct orders, the first being the processor itself with a 49.99 discount and the second being the game for 49.99.
This processor is for my company and is billed to my company credit card. The price for the processor is fine even without the bonus game (especially given the awesome Newegg service) but with two separate orders I now have a complication to explain to my company accountant.
Other Thoughts: Apparently I can't submit a review without a rating. This review is about the billing process, not the game.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xBBR - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight
Pros: It works great on my Linux Mint 17 box. The backlighting mode adjustment works, switching into gaming mode works, and the media keys work with Rhythmbox without any plugins.
As far as the keyboard's physical attributes go, I'm coming from an IBM Model M which recently died, and this is a worthy successor.
The backlighting is well focused on the keys. Translucency is excellent and smooth on all keys. The braided cable is a welcome upgrade, and the connection point to the keyboard is robust. I found the included ports (especially the headphone jack) to be surprisingly handy. Excellent mix of minimal bezel, solid weight, and correct leading edge height.
I find the Cherry Browns to be the best mix for everyday use, although this is a personal choice.
Cons: A couple of very minor design considerations:
1) The NumLock / CapsLoc / "G" LEDs are much brighter and can't be dimmed.
2) The "Rosewill" logo stamped on the front is whiter and more prominent than the nice subtle text and graphics elsewhere on the keyboard; it is an unfortunate private labeling choice by Rosewill for an otherwise elegant product.
Other Thoughts: I've not used the included software.
The keys begin at leading edge of the keyboard (this is the right way to make a keyboard in my opinion) so you are going to want a wrist rest. I didn't like the plastic wrist rest that was included, I prefer a gel or other soft wrist rest.
This review is from: Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5" SSD / HDD Plastic Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay
Pros: No problems with mounting the drive to the adapter or mounting adapter into my machine. Mounting screws were included and everything lined up nicely. (Installing a new SSD into a 6-year-old full size tower).
Other Thoughts: I had reservations about a plastic unit, but after installing I see that metal would be complete overkill for a 2.5" drive bay adapter. Plastic wasn't very good going from 5.25" to 3.5" but it is fine going from 3.5" to 2.5". With older / heavier spinning drives there was a natural tendency to solidly tighten screws which would strip plastic, this is definitely not an issue with a 2.5" SSD.READ FULL REVIEW
