This review is from: NVIDIA 940817612500500 NVIDIA Tegra K1 2 GB Memory 16 GB Flash Storage 0 GB 8.0" Touchscreen SHIELD Tablet K1 Android Lollipop OS (Android 6.0 Marshmallow Over-The-Air upgrade available)
Pros: Seems fine, runs well, plays games and performs as advertised.
Cons: Doesn't even include a charger. What kind of garbage packaging is that? Who doesn't want a charger for their brand new device? I didn't even think to check that, because every device I've purchased in the last 10-15 years has come with a power cord. It's tempting to return this stupid thing because of this oversight. What terrible customer consideration.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bang for your buck, this thing is insane. My girlfriend bought this for her computer - she spent less than I did on my i5 3700 and she gets better performance. Runs fairly cool, pretty stable, really nice overall. I haven't overclocked it yet - I usually save that for the end of the CPU's life when it's having a rough time handling the things I want to run with it.
Cons: Jeez this thing is loud. Even when the fan is running at 30%, I can hear it in another room. It's like a freakin' freight train. I have a full tower a few feet away from the mid tower that this one is in, and even with all 9 fans running at max speed, you can't hear them over the whine of this CPU cooler. I had to knock off one egg for that reason.
Other Thoughts: The noise is NOT a reason to avoid this processor. It's a great piece of hardware, and there are a thousand solutions to the noise issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Black USB Wired Lycosa Mirror Special Edition Gaming Keyboard
Pros: This keyboard is pretty freakin' cool looking. There's a little touch panel that, while I've never used it, is probably extremely useful to people who control their music from the keyboard. The rubber keys do have a nice feel to them, and because of my setup, the headphone/microphone jack on the top of the keyboard was invaluable.
Cons: The keys have an extreme amount of resistance. My friends often joke about how I slam the keys when I type on their keyboards, but that's just how I learned to type after using this thing for a year. the "p" and "a" keys are especially bad for me, but they all have it to a degree. Even in this paragraph alone, I've had to correct 5 typos due to the keys not pushing down without an extreme amount of force. If you like to type lightly, this is absolutely not the keyboard for you. After a year, even though this keyboard is fully functional, I'm purchasing a new one (a different one) because I've grown so tired of constantly fixing unnecessary typos.
Other Thoughts: I'm sure my problem is a fairly unique situation, so consider that before you turn this keyboard down. It really is a beautiful keyboard.READ FULL REVIEW
