This review is from: Perixx PX-1100 Backlit Gaming Keyboard - Red/Blue/Purple Illuminated Keys
Pros: [Updated 08 2016]
First, this is not 'rebranded'...this is 'copied'.
It is not identical to the Saitek internally, it is externally, it is good for a good price (initially I got mine when it was new & got it for 20.00) and overall if you are in market for a non-mechanical this is the best....as it COPIES the best design, ever, imho.
Mine's space bar died a while back, it still works but it takes a hard pounding to get it to move. Very annoying, and of course no way to really fix it in a financially feasible way , or without being without it for months, so other than that just wanted to make sure new buyers get it IS a copy, a very good one, but Im not 100% that the LEDs and key mechanisms are exactly the same...just very close.
Well its simple; either copyright is a non-factor in China or they bought the Saitek design, and as the Saitek Eclipse II is my favorite...this exact duplicate is perfect.
Cons: taking $ out saitek pocket? dont even know what country they are in im just guessing china. only con, i cant go back and buy 100 of these at 20.00. I got it for 20.00 on sale (Saitek going for about 80? i think). I see they are now 70, temporarily on sale for 50.00. If you like the EclipseII get this before the price is the same. Identical I tell ya.
Other Thoughts: UPDATE: So, when I bought this I still had 3 Saitek NIB. I realized that the price had shot up as apparently Saitek is out of business.So after owning it for many months now, I still say its near identical to the Eclipse II. I did also, after selling my new ones, by a used Saitek online and when I got it I took it apart to clean and try to fix it. I have not taken apart the Perrix yet, but that would be the true telling of how close they are. I do see the genius of the Saitek design though I will warn anyone considering repairing their own; do NOT strip even one screw hole.If all holes are not intact for reassembly you will have string problems in that area. Another consideration, many of the used Saiteks I saw were missing one or both of the stands (and the palm rest but I throw those out myself). Buying a Perrix, at the right price, is a great way to get the impossible to find pieces to fix your Saitek....
But three/four months now at least...and Perrix still has good LED, uniform key responce, and is a good knock off. My Saiteks only ever got thrown out due to frustartion with missing stands (that I broke) or from maybe a spill....Never had I actually burned one out. So we will see if Perrix can stand same test of time. Even my G110 finally burned out with using the LED all the time, and started to show significant wear, but never my Saiteks.
Pros: works good
Other Thoughts: I just wasted 30 min writing a cojent, decriptive review. newegg made me re-log in and wiped the text out. Thanks.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Topwin 1 Piece Touch Screen Pen Universal Capacitive Stylus For Phone Tablet
Pros: They are cheap. Design is decent though they are very light (assuming thin=cost low)
Cons: Wear out in a week, or less.
Other Thoughts: I may be stylus-stupid. I don't know what cloth they use in stylus's (yea i know "-i") but it must have a huge quality variance. I bought some Rosewill ones that were 12.00 each when they were on sale, and a Belkin one at about same price point, and I swear, even those do wear, but they seem to last much longer than any of the cheap variety available here or elsewhere. On that note, these are a much much better deal than the 5.00 ea ones at Walgreens.READ FULL REVIEW
