This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Red Edition)
Pros: - LED's look great
- Keyboard has a good tactile feel to it (media buttons a plus)
- Build quality seems decent
- Mouse is precise
Cons: - Mouse is lighter than I would like
- Must press the scroll lock in order to turn on the LED's
- Mouse DPI at the highest setting still isn't as sensitive as I would like
- Cannot see the keys unless the back light is on, no problem for me but for some it may be an issue
Other Thoughts: I personally do not use this but have tested it each time I have picked it for clients or friends. Have ordered 3 thus far and haven't had a complaint from the individuals who use them.
At $30, you are getting easily $45-$50 worth of quality and features. Even looking on e bay, you are hard pressed to find a combo to beat this.
I personally like the feel of the keys and the color of the red and blue (haven't ordered green yet). Gaming with it, I do not feel a noticeable disadvantage towards the higher end Logitech gear I'm used to using (and that's a bold statement for a $30 combo.
I recommend this product for anyone looking to step up into an entry level gaming mouse and keyboard combo.
Pros: - Fast, if not the fastest 7200RPM drives you can get consumer level.
- Available in multiple sizes (1Tb, 2Tb, ect.)
- Reliable thus far
Other Thoughts: I love these drives. I have multiple in my system and have installed them into many others. None so far have been DOA and I have not been informed of any needed warranty replacements. Speed, reliability, and size make these a great deal.
Other brands and models are cheaper, but they will not be as fast as these and maybe not as reliable.
Do yourself a favor, if you wish to have a system that feels very stable, cannot afford a good SSD, and are looking at that WD Blue for $49.99... save the extra $25 and grab this.
Pros: - Works as advertised, most frequently used applications store bits into cache to give SSD like perfomance.
- Windows boot times in between 15-25 seconds depending on the system after a couple of boots.
Cons: - 5400RPM
- Only 8Gb's of cache available
- If installing an applications, game, ect. and trying to do multiple other things, the cache system will not save you from a bit of slow down and haults.
Other Thoughts: I have installed 3 of these into computers now. All three worked as intended from the first boot. For the users of the computers, these drives will do but for intense users who like to do multiple things at once, a westren digital black or SSD will be your better option.
Ran HDTune with these drives and all 3 were consistently in between 80-110 Mbps. Now that isn't testing the NAND cache, that's testing the platter. A WD Black will out perform this when doing multiple HDD intensive tasks such as installing, rendering, ect..
If they could increase the NAND to 16-32Gb's and make it a 7200RPM drive which may increase its form factor to 3.5" then charge an additional $15-$20 that would be a winner. For now, if you are not an intense user, you will enjoy SSD like speed without sacrificing the needed storage space with these SSHD's.
