This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: -Excellent keystroke reaction time.
-Bright/vivid back lit keys. 3 levels of brightness. Some people would like "more customization options" for lighting but I'm happy with the options.
-Solid aluminum framing plate. Very sturdy, feels high quality. The aluminum plating sits with a low profile, making dusting/cleaning very easy and thorough with canned air. Not many places for dust and dirt to hide.
-Wrist rest is soft and comfortable.
-Contoured WASD 1-6 keys are very nice. This comes with a key tool for easy extraction of standard keys.
-Braided cord, very nice. I have worn through keyboard/mice cords int he past.
The price is a little steep but you REALLY get what you pay for with this.
Cons: -Price BUT you get what you pay for. Totally worth it.
-Contoured keys caps 1-6 DO NOT show ! @ # $ % ^ of their corresponding keys. This might throw off novice typers/gamers, or those who sometimes physically look at the keyboard when typing. For me, this really isn't a Con, I know a keyboard layout well. For those not too familiar, keep standard keys on until you get better acquainted.
Other Thoughts: Best keyboard I have ever owned. It was worth the extra few bucks.
Plug & play.
If you have heavy hands, having the back legs up might cause slight keyboard movement when typing/playing. Not an issue for me but I can see it being an issue for some people.
When first plugging this in, I noticed the Scroll Lock light (next to Num Lock and Caps Lock light) was continuously blinking and the Windows Lock button didn't work. There is a Bios option switch between the USB pass through port and the keyboard cable itself. Mine was set to 1 on default (1, 2, 4, 8 are the options). Switch this to any other option, and then if you choose, you can put it back on 1. This removed the blinking, as well as fixed the functions of Scroll Lock and Windows Lock. If you slide the switch to another option and the blinking/lack of Windows function persists, reboot in selected option. I've read, depending on your Bios, some users require the use of 2, 4, or 8. Mine is fine on 1. Your necessity may vary.
Pros: Long time nVidia user. Previous graphics card burnt out. This one was reasonably priced for it's series. Also came with free game promo.
This card handles all games I play with high/max graphics settings: WoW, GW2, ESO (beta), Battlefield 4, Black Flag, Skyrim (with over 100 mods), Sins of a Solar Empire, etc.
Other Thoughts: Graphic drivers sometimes fail to update. This is nothing on the card itself. I found that to fix this, once you download the new drivers, do a system restart, and then load the drivers.
GeForce Experience, once minimized, will show up on your task bar as an opened program but will not maximize by clicking it's icon; seemingly making the program not running on your desktop. Either right click icon and maximize window, or hover house over icon, displaying a quick-view window... then click this window. I've seen a lot of forum questions on "GeForce Experience running but won't open". There you go.
This review is from: Xbox 360 Wired Controller Black/Glossy Black
Pros: Being a previous XBOX 360 player, using the same control interface for PC games made for an easy adjustment.
I use this for games like Skyrim and AC4: Black Flag. My girlfriend, who is not gaming savvy, finds ease in learning a game through the controller vs keyboard/mouse.
Other Thoughts: Cord is very long, which is good for those farther from their tower.
