Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT2G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: LEDs are functional out of the box, even on an Asus Rampage IV extreme. run as advertised at 8-8-8-24 1N @ 1.5v

Cons: One LED on ONE of the EIGHT sticks I bought. . . has a blue LED instead of a green one in ONE location. Loses 1 egg for quality control/testing. I'm not bothered enough by the . . personality of that one stick to RMA it, but it does say something that an obvious flaw like this made it through QC testing unnoticed.

Other Thoughts: I bought these on Shell shocker for my SKT 2011 board KNOWING the Ballistix mod utility would not work, and I was not disappointed. I cannot adjust the LEDs at all, though I've read if you set them the way you want them in another computer and transplant they will retain the settings. For my uses, they're already set the way I wanted them to be, so it's a non issue, but be mindful that the SKT 2011 issue with these sticks was never resolved [an answer I could not find online, hence I'm documenting it here for future seekers]

Razer DeathStalker Expert Gaming Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad 12/23/2012

This review is from: Razer DeathStalker Expert Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Decent feel for a non mechanical keyboard, the green matches the rest of my motif. Key backlighting is sharp and precise, not too bright, not too dim.

Cons: I've tried and returned about 6 Lycosa keyboards in my lifetime, and had minor [LED] issues with black widows. I haven't had any issues with the deathstalker YET, but on this one razer has a rep I'm nervous about.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to semi-replace a Mionix Zibal 60 mechanical keyboard that I was using for both typing and general gaming. Love it in typing, beat the heck out of it in gaming. . I wanted something to train my fingers to be a bit lighter, and the deathstalker ultimate is out of stock for the next 6months. I bought this from a local brick and mortar blue shirt store, that way if I DO have any issues I can return it. . but I haven't had any problems yet. It has a nice feel, nice looks. . . it's probably much more worth it for the price point than it's big brother. Am not the world's biggest fan of having to login to razer to save settings [Synapse 2.0] but it does work well enough. Overall so far has been a very quality board for the price.

Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: Addendum to below review to address one crucial item

Cons: See Other

Other Thoughts: Originally I had stated that one power button felt "dead" and did not light up. I fixed the lighting [user error] and I also found that if you back out the screws that secure the power button to the outside shell, it fixes the issue! Do not confuse this with the actual tan power button on the inside that the black button contacts to ; )
