Microsoft Keyboard 200 6JH-00001 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard

4 out of 5 eggs Good basic keyboard 03/28/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Keyboard 200 6JH-00001 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard

Pros: Great keyboard for no-nonsense functions. Plus, it's from Microsoft, so there's at least that "There should be no incompatibilities with this keyboard!"

Cons: Cheap feeling, please don't consider this if you're a button masher or heavy gamer.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard replaced a old PS2 keyboard as my main one and I don't do much "heavy" gaming, so this still works, though I will definitely be getting a mechanical keyboard for my next one.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 100354OC-2L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great price/performance (probably the best card out there for under $200 as of this review, I got it for roughly $185), nice cooler looks, and just a good card overall in terms of how fast it is (8.0 WEI on Windows 8).

Cons: It can get a little hot/loud when your running games or benchmarks-I had my leg next to the computer with the side panel off and I could definitely feel (and hear!) the heat. so if you're a silence freak (which I'm not), this might not be the card. Also, I'm not sure if this is the card or my setup, but on rare occasions, the screen will just turn into one color and freeze my system (you can hear the power supply struggling), though this is not the reason why I took off 1 egg, since it could be my setup.

Other Thoughts: I don't like to trust reviews that are from people who aren't "verified owners", have a "tech knowledge" of less than 3, who use bad grammar, or either go 5 stars or 1 star purely on one reason/no reason at all.
But I truly believe that it is near impossible to tell how well a product will work in the long run unless you've had it for more than a month. Had I written a review a couple days after getting it, I would have complained about having weird diagonal lines and weird pictures-however, after a week, I figured out it was my cable connecting the monitor to the card, not the card itself. I know the screen turning into one color (see cons) is not a mere coincidence since I've used it for about 40 days now and it's happened about 5 times (mostly when the GPU is under stress).
My point? Take a review with a grain of salt, including mines. Especially when it comes to graphics cards, there are quite a bit of 1 star reviews of people who simply plug their card in, see it doesn't work, then go online and complain via reviews. There are also the 5 star ones that simply plug their card in, see that it does work, then go online and rave about it just so that they can brag about it (along with the other specs of their computers).
In my opinion, this card deserves a 4. It has the pros of a 4, has the cons of a 4.

On a completely different note, my rebate still hasn't come in even after a month....why do rebates take 8 weeks to process anyways?

Pros: Lots of RAM and it is fast! Corsair is known for making great RAM, and this one is no exception.

Cons: None as of now

Other Thoughts: I got this RAM before prices started skyrocketing (I got it when it was $100.) So while I can say that it is good memory, I cannot say that I would pay $150 for the same stick.
