Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum RGB Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard

2 out of 5 eggs Do not buy this 02/05/2016

This review is from: Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum RGB Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard

Pros: RGB lighting, short throw mechanical switches, quality key caps, n-key rollover.

Cons: Awkward non-removable wrist "rest", cheap build quality, rubber key stoppers, no metal key mounting plate.

Other Thoughts: I'm both a typist and a gamer coming from long term use of mx brown and blue switches on filco, ducky and cooler master keyboards. The logitech g410 is a solid disappointment on all fronts of why you would buy a mechanical keyboard. Shorter key throw is about the only pro this keyboard but you can get that from a better feeling scissor switch design. Most generic Dell keyboards feel the same as this one both in build and in key actuation.

Acer Predator X34 Curved IPS NVIDIA G-sync Gaming Monitor 21:9 WQHD Display with Built-in Overclocking 100Hz Refresh Rate Boost

Pros: No dead pixels out of the box is a great feature as others have mentioned! This monitor oozes with great features like the ultrawide resolution, a very good LG panel, high refresh rates, low latency response times, good black levels, no PWM flicker, IPS and GSYNC. The bit depth is impressive on paper but not quite what I was hoping for in reality, more on that in cons.

Cons: The main problems the Acer x34 suffers which gets it a 4/5 instead of 5/5 is: increased backlight bleed in the top left corner, a hard to use OSD + buttons and a gimped color gamut. With an 8 bit + FRC panel, I expect much better reds and greens. Coming from a Dell U2413 with a similar LG 8 bit + FRC panel, I can say the Acer x34 is bland like oatmeal. I am not completely sure if it has to do with the white phosphor LED chosen for the backlight whereas the Dell U2413 has a nicer Red+Green LED backlight or maybe something else like their LUT programming.

Other Thoughts: My review and rating ignores the price tag as much as possible.
Since the cons are mostly in LG's ballpark (LG makes the IPS panel itself, Acer boxes it) I would give Acer itself a 5/5 and LG a 4/5 if I could. LG is a fantastic panel maker and easily my favorite but:

* I'd really appreciate it if Acer would make this monitor with an ultra wide color gamut instead of a standard color gamut and do it with better backlighting. *

Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I76700K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Pros: Excellent performance and temperatures. No issues at all. The price tag isn't a premium over budget alternatives. You pay for what you get in this case.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: No noticeable performance impact over the old 2600k but it barely breaks 25% overall CPU load where the 2600k was closer to 75% in certain scenarios. Temperatures are significantly lower as well. Works fine with coolers made for the LGA 1155 (2600k's socket) so no need to buy a new cooler.
