Pros: Wow, so this little projector is impressive. Let me say right off that you must connect to it HDMI, you can use the USB connection for storage devices only not a PC. It natively plays MKV and MP4 video files direct from a USB stick. You can take this on vacation and watch movies you have stored on a USB stick, great for entertaining the kids.
This worked well on any flat surface, but brightness is an issue so you will need a dark room.
I paired this projector with a streaming stick and was able to easily stream movies and TV shows from various popular services. I found myself streaming soccer games in whatever room I felt like being in rather than worrying about who wanted to watch something on our main TV.
This has also been very convenient to setup when the kids are fighting about what they want to watch as it even runs on a battery so it is a very versatile solution.
It also natively supports many picture formats so if you want to show pictures of your recent vacation you could just toss the pics or videos on a USB stick and off you go.
Obviously this comes in very handy for business presentations, it easily works with any laptop assuming you have some way of outputting to HDMI. You might need to get an adapter if your laptop only has VGA, DVI or Display port.
I found the controls easy to use. The remote was easy enough.
Cons: List Price, but it seems to go on sale a lot for as much as %50 off
Not as bright as I would like
Does not come with an HDMI cable.
Location of the power button is between the HDMI and USB port making it difficult to use while a streaming stick is installed and powered by the USB
Other Thoughts: The more I use this projector the more I like it. Paired with a streaming stick it is the perfect combo for entertainment in any room. It makes presentations a breeze. I had to really get picky to find any cons, the unit is not 100% perfect, but overall I still felt it was worth 5 eggs.
It is truly a multipurpose device, it can be used for work, or entertainment at home or while traveling.
This review is from: Noctua NF-A14 FLX 140mm Case Fan
Pros: I have several of these fans. They perform well they are not noisy and they run for a very long time.
I have some Noctua fans that are 7 years old still running strong. You get what you pay for with these and its worth it
Yeah I wish they would give some color options.
Other Thoughts: I have yet to have a Noctua fan fail. The company has impressed me in numerous ways. Just buy themREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
Pros: Standard Cherry MX Brown clickity clack, not the loudest, but they still make noise.
Volume control is great, the volume indicator is really cool addition.
Very solid construction, you can tell this keyboard was meant to last. The aluminum body is a nice touch.
Windows Key lock is critical for me when playing games. It is so annoying to accidently hit the windows key and be dropped to desktop ion the middle of a game so I love this feature.
3 keyboard color macros so you can switch without even going into the software.
6 macro buttons
USB port, MIC and Headphone jack
Supports standard 6-key rollover and N-Key Rollover for anti-ghosting
Included QWERCASDFG in red with case was a nice touch, honestly I was fine with just coloring those keys with LEDs and did not find the shape of the new keys a huge benefit.
If you have never use a mechanical keyboard it can take time to get used to it. I found that it took me a weak or so of use before I felt comfortable. I really liked how I can change the colors of each key independently. I was able to setup different color coding for different games. It wasn’t critical, but it worked well and I found myself really liking it.
Multiple brightness settings can be selected directly from a keyboard key so it is easy to dim or brighten at will.
The cables are braided and feel very solid and I find this to be an important feature. This cables of standard keyboards and fray and short out over time. I felt confident this would not be an issue for the GSkill keyboard.
Cons: Keys that have 2 characters on them like number keys are not uniform in brightness. The symbol above the number is much brighter
Little odd getting used to the macro keys being on the far right of the board
Software crashed on me for no reason, but it didn’t affect the keyboard. It worked well enough and the random crash was just a minor annoyance
I debated on taking an egg off or not, I wish I could give it 4.5 eggs, but its not perfect considering the price so I felt it would not be honest to give it a full 5.
Other Thoughts: Okay I did find myself initially playing with the lighting affects like Wave, Ripple etc. It was kind of fun, but after a while you stop wanting your keyboard to be the focus of attention and just do its job.
You need to go to their site to get the manual and the software, but I didn’t really mind as I want the most recent version anyway. Products sit on shelves or in warehouses for months and the software just goes out of date in that time.
I do not think I would want to use this for lots of typing, but if you are a gamer, especially one that requires lots of macros and solid anti-ghosting then this is the one for you.
