GAMDIAS Ares GKB6010 Gaming Keyboard 16.8 Million Backlit Colors, 9 Macro Keys, Premium Micro-Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Back lit, with key selection of colors and brightness plus composition and saving of macros. Pleasant action. Outrageous amount of customization possible. Excellent customer support via email.

Cons: Pre-programmed "gotcha" keys that do things only a gamer will appreciate like swap WASD keys for arrow keypad, and "game" mode that enables "firing" multiple characters with one key press. The key swapping is more obnoxious than the multiple characters. "Hera" customization soft ware not provided but easily downloadable and usable without actually installing. Firmware needed updating. "Hera" not usable in windoze XP and certainly not in Linux. "Hera"
worked in Windoze 7 but is gaudy and non-intuitive. Apparently provides an insane amount of customization if you can figure out how to use it. I managed to de-fang the re-map keys. Some customization is only possible via Hera, and will be painful if your target platform is not modern windoze.

Other Thoughts: I was going to knock this big time and send it back. User ran it 3 days before managing to brush the re-mapping keys rendering it useless in application as a regular keyboard on Ubuntu. Customer Support saved the day by responding fairly promptly (hour or two) to my complaint, and courteously provided necessary clues about the re-map keys. Well they are specified in the manual, but now we have a user that must remember what not to touch. CS once again responded with the confirmation that the re-map keys can be disabled using "Hera" software. The software had no instructions but I managed to accomplish the task so we are happy.

GIGABYTE GA-E2100N AMD E1-2100 APU 1.0GHz Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: All on one board. Passive heat sink. Low power. Uses DDR3 memory. Parallel and serial ports. HDMI port. USB 3 ports too! Very nice collection of ports, though the parallel and serial are rarely used these days.

Cons: Unacceptably slow for usage as a regular Linux desk top. Totally inappropriate for windoze.

Other Thoughts: We have been running Ubuntu on Atom D510 systems for years but they top out at 4 gB of DDR2. Nothing particularly intensive so they worked fine but we can use more ram. Hence the attempt to use this to upgrade as putting in 16 gB is no problem. But whereas the Atom processor is marginally slow, this processor presents only 2 cores at about 2000 bogo mips compared to 4 cores and over 3000 bogo mips each on the Atom. In an appropriate application like a kiosk it would be great.

Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs NEVER again!!!!! 07/09/2014

This review is from: Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard

Pros: It is pretty. Came in a nice plain brown box.

Cons: No receiving unit, as has been noted by a number of other reviewers. No batteries either. Without the receiving unit, this product is WORTHLESS! To add insult to injury, is is non-replacable and non-refundable. And the support people insist on calling the receiving unit an "Accessory" and declaring that accessories are not guaranteed.

Other Thoughts: Never EVER EVER buy ANYTHING "Refurbished" from Newegg! I spend hundreds of bucks and rarely have a problem. This one takes the cake though, with the near-refusal to deal with the issue. Chalk this one up as an expensive lesson. If you are thinking about buying this product, save yourself some grief and look elsewhere!
