Pros: low power consumption and fast clock speeds along with the price makes for a real nice upgrade. I was using an old gt 240 and wanted to do a minor upgrade until i build a new system and this was a great choice. extrmely quite,compact and no need for a new psu are the key pointers with this card. i originally saw some random frame drops until i got the 314.22 drivers from nvidia and now it runs really good. i didnt buy this from newegg because i was too impatient to wait for shipping so i paid about $40 more for the convienence but was well worth it. playing tomb raider on ultra gives me about 10-18 fps which is to be expected with a card like this and a game with grafix that intense but with a slight tuning in the options I get amazing grafix and run an average of 30 fps with a high of 50. I highly recommend this card for anyone on a budget.
Cons: no cons so far as ive not had any issues with it since the driver upgrade
Other Thoughts: would have been nice to come with a few more cuda cores but still a great card for the moneyREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Back light, Back light Back light is awesome. I only got it today and so far really like this thing. Its great for gaming because it is compact enough to reach all the keys but doesnt have chicklets for keys. they are slightly small than your standard size keys. A cross between a full size and a laptop. It types flawlessly and I went from a full size emachine keyboard to this and i didnt miss a beat. So far all around a killer keyboard for the money especially if you got the combo deal. Just feels great. Buttons are easy to push has a nice feel.
Cons: No volume control but new that when i bought it. Didnt say multimedia so i didnt expect it but wouldve been a nice addon. The lay out do to its smaller size cause some of the keys to be in different places such as page up and page down along with a few others but this is not really a con but more of an adjustment. Doesnt bother me one bit
Other Thoughts: I got the combo deal keyboard and mouse for less than 30 dollars and if it wasnt for the mouse being a bit cheap it would have been the perfect combo for me. So far i will say that im not gonna give up on irocks because off a little mouse issue but will definitely be more mindful of what products i by from them. Keyboard=Awesome...Lazer Mouse= Not so Awesome. But still a nice buy. I recommend this keyboardREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: i-rocks IR-7571L-BK Black 4 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Laser 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Comfortable, Nice DPI feature. Great side trigger back button for web browsing. Very nice. Has a nice weight to it.3.2oz About 1 ounce more than my GE optical mouse i am replacing. Plug and play made this install flawless. I love the 1600 DPI it makes everything so much more prcise but not so much its over kill. In fact I could still see using a higher DPI When I buy my next mouse in the future. But on a 37 inch monitor a high D"PI is helping me a lot.
Cons: Ok first off this thing does miss clicks like the other post mentioned. Immediately out of the box its missing 1 click out of say every 10 or so. I have to remove 2 eggs for that. I am hoping it wont progress.
Other Thoughts: The DPI button MUST BE HELD DOWN FOR A FEW SECONDS. ha I thought it didnt work either but you really need to hold it down and it will change DPI settings. Will cause the cursor to freeze after holding for a few seconds. that is when you know it changed and let off the button.
As far as a mouse goes, for the money I suppose its ok. IF it didnt miss clicks id give it 5 eggs but to act up as soon as i plugged it in shows these are cheap mass produced with little quality control. If your poor and need a decent mouse this will do but if you want a good mouse pass on this. Its a shame because it is a nice mouse if that little tid bit didnt ruin it. I wont be sending it back just yet to see how it holds up. a click every once in a while isnt the end of the world but it is a reall annoyence when you need it for gaming. But if it gets worse ill RMA it.
