This review is from: Wacom Intuos Pro PTH651 8.8" x 5.5" Active Area USB Pen and Touch Medium
Pros: Amazing tablet in general. All the drivers work wonderfully. If you're wanting a tablet that's reliable and have the extra money to spend, this is well worth it. Mine came with the wireless adapter (others say theirs didn't). No noticeable difference between wired/wireless. The battery for wireless lasts quite a while.
Cons: Something between the drawing surface and the pen nibs don't agree with one another. After about 8-ish hours collectively drawing with this tablet, the pens nib is about 35-40% gone. You WILL need to buy a surface cover if you want your pen nibs to last (Posrus is the brand I bought). Taping printer paper to the drawing surface is a cheaper way of going about it. Honestly though, if you have the money to afford this, just throw down the extra 10-15 bucks it costs to get the professionally made cover for it.
Other Thoughts: I don't draw that often anymore but I was sick of dealing with my off-brand tablet when I do draw. It's very easy to pack away if on the travel. It's literally the same size as my 17" laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)
Pros: -Neat design
-Backlit keyboard is wonderful
-Built well enough for the price
-Keyboard works fine after 2 years
-The "scroll lock is also back light" issue has never been a problem with gaming.
-Keyboards back light is bright enough to use in the daylight, not blinding when used in dark.
Cons: -Mouse only lasted two years (give or take a few months)
-After a year the scroll wheel started squeeking
-After a year and a half, the left click started to not "click". It still worked at this point but was stupidly touchy. Resting your finger on it would cause it to "click" in (quotation because you couldn't hear or feel the click, but it still worked).
-After a full two years the left click stopped responding completely.
-Sometimes (very rarely), after the comp would go into a screen saver, both keyboard/ mouse would stop responding completely and required to be unplugged then re-plugged.
-Keys on keyboard are extremely hard to make out when back light is off.
Other Thoughts: It's generally a good buy for something to get someone by on a budget. If you're looking for long term, so far only the mouse isn't reliable. The usage on the mouse was moderate. No one that used it was an excessive clicker when playing games. I have cheaper mice from the old days that were used to hell and back still work fine.
I would recommend getting just the keyboard if possible and buying a different mouse. Again though, if you're on a budget and need both a mouse and keyboard, this isnt a bad buy.
Pros: -Blue light for my scheme matched really well.
-A good buy for something short term; until you can afford a better one.
-Lasted about two years and is still going; however... (see cons)
Cons: -With mine, the port that the main power cable plugs into was very touchy. If you so much as bumped it, most times it would completely cut off power entirely. Which just isn't good at all.
-I believe it's beginning to fry my Hard Disc Drives. I went through two so far this last year (which is ridiculous) and upon putting in the third, it almost immediately started doing the same thing as the other two did when they died. The SSD I put in is fine so far; though I'm not taking any chances...
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a package deal newegg had going on. Worked fairly well for its price. Not good in the long run if you're buying this and expecting it to last for a while.READ FULL REVIEW
