This review is from: Rosewill RVHS5-11002 5-In / 1-Out HDMI Switch, Support 3D Output
Pros: First and foremost. It does it's job, and it does it fairly well. I have this hooking up my xBox and my PC to my Samsung px2370 monitor. It switches between the two pretty well, though there was a 2 month area where when I turned on my xBox it wouldn't switch to it at all, not even hitting the button would change it.
It looks ~ok, I'm not the biggest fan of white as my set-up is all black, but it doesn't look bad either.
Cons: Here's where my biggest issues with the device are, the LIGHTS! They are bright! Apparently whoever was designing this didn't take into the fact that the people using it might have it facing them and within 5ft from their position. When plugged in, the lights are extremely bright and can definitely distract you when you're gaming. I currently have something between me and it as to block the lights, but make sure you take this into consideration when purchasing this product.
Other Thoughts: Overall decent product, it does it's job and it doesn't catch on fire.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A LOT on this keyboard is very very good. First of all, the keyboard is mechanical. I didn't think there would be much between the regular dome keys on my old Razer Lycosa, but there's a huge difference between the two in terms of typing feel and response.
The keys are a lot easier to hit and also don't have tactile response. You also don't have to bottom out the keys to activate the switch, so it's extremely fast at responding to whatever keystroke you make.
The G-keys are amazing. Before buying Starcraft 2 I would never think I would need any, boy was I wrong. They're responsive and they react well. Also the 3 banks make it that more amazing. Also, the fact that they're lower than the other keys makes it so you don't have to look at the keyboard to make sure you're hitting them.
The buttons are very good and really help out in many ways. I now set my volume on max and use the scroll wheel to set the volume. Also, the media keys are nice too. (other options)
Cons: The Escape to F12 keys along with the home/delete section and the G Keys are not mechanical. As for the F keys and some of the home area I don't really mind. But the G keys and the Delete/Escape keys are going to be used a lot and the fact that they're not mechanical irks me a bit.
The media keys are kind of hidden behind the number pad and if you lean back into your chair like I do you won't be able to see them.
The keys are kind of raised a bit too much. It's easy to get used too, but I'm used the low profile of my Lycosa that was more than amazing to type on. This is still better then that.
Other Thoughts: The back lighting is amazing. It's unique and has a wonderful glow. Also, the G keys are white so it adds a uniqueness too it that I like a lot.
The way they have it set up to where there isn't an area that crumbs and dirt and nastiness can fall into is ingenious.
It would be nice if this keyboard came in more than just Cherry MX Red keys. Maybe a Blue or a Black version would be nice.
This review is from: APEVIA CF12SL-BBL 120mm UV blue LED fan w/3-pin and 4-pin connectors and black grill
Pros: I love them when they're actually blue. And these are the deeper blue I've been looking for. Before I had some Rosewill fans that were actually teal. It made my case look very bad. They're really bright as well.
Also, they move a ton of air. I usually keep these on the lowest setting because I don't have to turn it up anymore than that.
Cons: Can't think of any
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy the fact that these are actually blue, instead of the nasty Teal color the Rosewill fans were.READ FULL REVIEW
