This review is from: SteelSeries 64105 Shift Keyboard
Pros: Quiet keys. Every button is programmable. Keyboard has a great feel to it, nice and springy with that satisfying cushioned rubber sound when you press them. Has 2 USB ports on the back for plugging things in(I was not aware of these until I opened the box). Also had headphone and mic jack with them as well.
Cons: Have not found any real cons with this yet. Read my other comments though.
Other Thoughts: This keyboard sits a little higher than a standard keyboard does because it needs room for the keyset to be able to be swapped out. This is not a con per-say, but it does take a little bit of getting used to. However, it doesn't take long and this will be a different process for each person. I installed it this afternoon and am already getting used to it a bit. Don't get discouraged if you have some typos when you first use it.
I opted not to use the included "ramp" that goes on the front of the board and we was delighted to see that it was removable when I opened the box.
Bearing in mind that I'm someone that has never spent more than $10 on a keyboard in my life, this is the finest keyboard my fingers have ever had the honor of touching. This is my first experience with a Steelseries product of any kind and so far I am extremely impressed.
Pros: Nice layout. Looks nice. Rubber keys on most used gaming keys. Lots of multimedia and macro buttons. Somewhat quiet keys.
Cons: Some key combinations do not work. For example, holding down the W key and trying to use SHIFT+T does not work at all. You have to let go of the W key in order to make it work. This issue does not present for every key though. W plus SHIFT+R(among many) works fine. Just not SHIFT+T.
Spacebar and shift keys must be pressed hardly and firm in order to work. I am constantly having to fix typing errors due to the spacebar not registering.
Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard because it was one of the cheaper keyboards available that had the multimedia buttons I wanted. I would not recommend buying this keyboard unless you enjoy buttons not working and other intermittent issues.
I signed up for the 30-day trial of the Newegg Premier service so I was able to return this keyboard without paying return shipping. Had I not been able to do that, this keyboard would be going in the trash as soon as the replacement(different manufacturer) arrived.
Be warned, I have seen versions of this exact keyboard from 2-3 different manufactures here on Newegg. I can't speak for any brand other than the Rosewill one I own, but I can't imagine those other identical keyboards work any differently. The funny thing is, one of the clones I saw was $10 more expensive than this one.
This review is from: RAIDMAX Blade ATX-298WY Black/Yellow Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Solid construction, plenty of space, good layout.
Cons: Screws that were included had lots of trouble going into the included standoffs. Threads must have been of pictures from each other. If I ever have to take the motherboard out of this case, the standoffs will be coming out with it at the same time. I did not subtract an egg for this, as it really is probably a hit or miss thing.
Other Thoughts: We bought this case for our children's computer because my wife and I thought it looked like bumblebee from Transformers.READ FULL REVIEW
