Pros: Hey this is not the best keyboard out there but for 19.99 (I got mine on Newegg Flash last week) is a winner. For me it has a good feel and the keys are easy to see especially in the dark. No it is not a gaming keyboard but I do not know of any that are this inexpensive. I mainly bought mine as a back up keyboard and was not expecting much but after using it for a while I was pleasantly surprised.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: For me this could be perfect if they made it wireless. I like the fact that it is very light weight. Oh also I wish that you could adjust how bright the illumination is, the way it is designed it is either off or on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Everything works as it is supposed to, I purchased two of these enclosures the last time they were on sale. For those of you having problems with them not working correctly, the problem is probably due to you using Western Digital drives, they design their drives to purposely not work in raid set ups because they want you to spend hundreds of dollars on their enterprise drives. There was so much complaining from enthusiasts like you and me who build their own systems that they finally developed a modestly priced drive called the WD Red that is meant for NAS and raid setups. As of now they do not have any 2.5" drive that will work in a raid set up. I had a different 2.5" raid enclosure that when I first set it up I only had two different drives so I configured it as non raid, I think CinRaid calls it Big but I believe the correct term is JOBD. The drives I used were a Samsung 1TB and a 500GB WD Black. Well every few minutes the raid would fall off line and I would have to unplug it and then re attach it to the usb for it to work again. After this happened for a while I did some Google searches to see if I could find out what was wrong and found several articles that all stated the same thing, if you want to build a relatively cheap raid do not buy WD drives because they by design will not work in a raid. I purchased an additional 1TB Samsung drive and have never had an issue since, I believe that every other brand will work in a raid but not WD. After my previous enclosures power connector failed I bought the two CineRaid enclosures and have not had any difficulties. For me a very big PRO is they did not use the micro B USB3 connector. I have not owned one device that uses this connector that I have not had connectivity issues. The type of connector for me is the deciding factor if I will purchase a USB 3 device or not. If it has any other type connector then I buy it but not if it uses the micro B USB 3 connector.
Cons: No eSATA port, it is not really a con but as a note to CineRaid. I would pay more for the same enclosure if you also included an eSATA port.
Other Thoughts: do not hesitate to buy if you want a compact fast enclosure. I use mine for my Steam account, I now have 166 games and have used up 733GBs of space. Not too long from now I will need more than 1TB. I use an external drive for Steam so I can use it with my Gaming Desktop as well as my Laptop without using up all the storage space on the laptop just for a duplicate Steam. For those wondering how I did this I Do a regular Steam install on the different systems so Steam is registered in the Windows registry but I do not use the Steam on the C drive. When I plug in the external drive I launch Steam from a shortcut I put in the drives root directory. I simply open the drive in Explorer and click on the short cut pointing to the Steam.exe that is on the external drive. The only draw back is you need to disable the Steam Guard that checks if the system is a trusted system. If you do not then every time you log into Steam you have to activate the system each time.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: I find this game to be very interesting and I like the way the game is written. You can play the game in high chaos where you kill everything that moves or try and not kill anyone or anything in between. How you choose to play affects game play as well as the ending. Another Pro is that the developers have released a couple of extra content packs and are not over charging for them and have them priced at 10 dollars.
Another Pro for me it that it requires Steam, the reason this is a pro is if you have a fast internet connection you do not even have to take the disk out of its sleeve, just register the S/N on Steam and download it. I like using Steam because I never have to ever worry about game updates and patches as Steam takes care of that for you. Also all the games that have downloadable content that is released is easily purchase from Steam and is automatically added to the game. Also if you are patient and do not compelled to pre order games or buy games on release day, just wait a few months and the games that are just okay are always on sale on Steam at substantial savings.
Cons: The main game is rather short and could have been longer. I would have been very upset had I bought the game when it first came out and paid 59.99 for it but I bought mine here on Newegg back in April when it was on sale for 19.99. So for 20 bucks the game is okay. Another thing that may be a con for some is it requires you to install and run Steam in order to play. For me this was not an issue as I already had 150 different games in my Steam library already.
Other Thoughts: You might like to know that I am an older gamer, recently turned 60. I became an avid gamer when I was forced to go on an early retirement due to medical issues. I suppose that my attitude towards games is affected by my age. I hate publishers, like EA and Ubsoft who in my opinion are only out to shaft their customers by way over hyping their games and pricing them way too high. I personally have a boycott against these two companies for this reason as well as their increasing use of draconian DRM that does nothing to curb piracy but does nothing but upset their customers. I will not ever purchase anything that either of these companies produce! And I do not care if it winds up being rated the best game of the year. I have pretty much given up on PC gaming, I do not plan on buying anything new and especially do not plan on upgrading my video cards just to be able to play the newer titles on high settings. I was considering buying one of the new Nvidia GeForce 770's that sell around 333 here on Newegg or a 780 for twice that price but instead have decided to shift my gaming to a new PS4 when it arrives around November 15.READ FULL REVIEW
