This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Glow USB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Very heavy so it does not slide around on the desk at all. Even during intense gaming this guy will not budge, which to me is a great thing. I personally think cherry blacks are the best for gaming. I tried the red and found them way to sensitive..and I came to the conclusion I have big hands and thus I am a heavy typist. Blacks are perfect for me. Plenty of options and no buggy behavior.
Cons: You have to go online to download the driver to fully get this keyboard to work. Also right out of the box the "caps lock" button does not function...it is change to some other hotkey used for macros and such. So basically you have to get the driver off the website to have a normally functioning keyboard. That does not sit well with me. Also once you get the driver and start using the software..it is confusing as hell and there are no instructions. you literally just have to figure it out through trial and error. I eventually got the hang of it..however I probably spent over 2 hours sorting it all out if not more.
Other Thoughts: Despite the flaws and the 4 eggs I really like this keyboard. For all around use it is perfect for my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: It looks nice and feels fine to type with. Basically "plug and play". Build quality seems to be there. Will not slide around on your desk much due to its sturdy weight.
Cons: This board has bad "key chattering" where it will type double letters during normal usage. Fforr exxampple like thiss. I have to double check everything I type to make sure this does not happen. Also there was a issue where the letter "A" would not work on some webpages. I switched the bios switch to another setting and it seemed to fix that issue.
Other Thoughts: This keyboards chattering seems to be going down as it gets more use. Also the instructions where very vague...what exactly do these bios switches do? Which bios setting should be used for win 7? Or vista? Well it does not say.
Since this keyboard has bad chattering and very limited instructions, I have to deduct 2 eggs. I think the chattering will subside more or less as the board gets more use. Not 100% positive however.
Pros: I had this card for a few months and it worked well.
Cons: Where do I even begin. After 3 months this card started artifacting green lines after prolonged use...generally after 2-3 hours of solid gaming. I tried down-clocking...turning up the fans...adjusted various settings to no avail. No matter what I did the same green lines would appear. The RMA process is awful, After I paid my own money to have the card sent out...they "tested" it and sent it back without my approval nor working on the card itself. So I checked it out myself and what do you know...the same artifacts after normal gaming use. I called them again..and at least this time they offered to pay for shipping. I have been getting the run around by this company now for 2 straight months. This has been a expensive...time consuming...annoying experience. So I am waiting on a 2nd RMA...since I can not go 2 months without gaming...I was forced to buy another card. Now I am stuck with this sub-standard 500 dollar paper weight. No card that is this expensive should be giving me this many problems...nor should the RMA process be a large waste of time and money. I am so frustrated with gigabyte I will probably never buy anything from them again...at the very least gigabyte video cards.
Other Thoughts: If gigabyte would have been cool and honored the first RMA request in a timely and orderly fashion instead of having me waste money and time on sending it out yet again defective I would not be nearly as upset. Deplorable customer service and quality control.READ FULL REVIEW
