Belkin Black Portable Keyboard Case for iPad mini Model F5L145ttBLK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs A seriously nice case 02/08/2014

This review is from: Belkin Black Portable Keyboard Case for iPad mini Model F5L145ttBLK

Pros: Got this case for my father for his iPad.
Construction and quality seemed VERY good.

Cons: I was not very smart.

Other Thoughts: This does NOT fit an iPad Air. (Yes, the description says so as well, please refer to cons)
Really It was a case a bad timing, he had just gotten the new iPad and I didn't really see until I had gotten it in the mail.
Newegg took the return and all was well though.
As a side note, this does not fit a Nexus 7 either. (Dur, right?)

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GRSL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Thes have gone into a Mini-ITX set up and have been working admirably for the last 2 months.

Cons: They are very small.

Other Thoughts: G.Skill has never done me wrong with their Memory, and this has proven to be the case as well.

Intel Core i5-4670 Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54670 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works as its supposed to, very fast.

Cons: Cannot overclock (which isn't really a con since its what I paid for).
The HD graphics (built in graphics) really do not impress me in the slightest, but I am a pretty big gamer and am biased.

Other Thoughts: This was used in a case that was had limited power capabilities and so there was no point in getting a "K" processor and so I saved a few bucks.
At this point in time, CPU's have reached a point where unless you have a specialized job or task that is very processor heavy, you will not max out on this processor.
I myself am a gamer and don't see the point in getting an i7 processor because by the time I upgrade my computer (or even within 3 years), you are never going to task it out more than it can handle. You will either be bottlenecked by the video card if your playing a game, or the storage drive (even SSD, mostly because of windows), FAR before the processor is maxed out.
So do yourself a favor, unless you KNOW you are going to need the processor power, or you are a guy who take pride in his computer like some do in their sports cars, just stick with the i5-K series and if you want to push the envelope, make sure you have a good Heatsink cooler/case air flow system and just overclock it if it makes you feel better. (I don't even have to overclock mine at the moment).
Back to the HD graphics issue, if you only use your computer for basic tasks like banking, surfing the net, and stuff like that, the HD graphics will do. If you plan on doing ANY kind of serious gaming, get a dedicated card, (by serious gaming I do NOT include web based games that run off of java or flash player, sorry folks but those are not games to me, but silly things to waste some time on (which I do as well so that's not a slight to you, Mr/Mrs reader)).
