Pros: It burns and play Blu-Ray.
Cons: Didn't read ANY disc at first when first installed. Restarted computer, updated firmware and it works just fine now.
Other Thoughts: Not much to say about it. It burns and plays Blu-Ray. Anyone that complains it doesn't play Blu-Ray movies needs to know it doesn't work on your typical media player like Windows Media Player. You have to get a program that actually plays Blu-Ray movies. For me, I used Nero Blu-Ray Player and it plays just fine. There are other programs out there that you can download and buy to play Blu-Ray. Other then that, don't listen to those guys that say "it doesn't play Blu-Ray movies" when it actually does.
Another issue I've seen is that it doesn't read any discs right after installing it. Heck, the drive didn't even show up in My Computer window. I thought it was broken too until I restarted my PC and updated the firmware (even though firmware was already up-to-date like same version, I decided to install the firmware that I downloaded from LG). I have burned many discs and played many movies in the past month of owning it and it's been fine. If you don't want any coasters, DO NOT BUY cheap Blu-Ray blanks then. I haven't had a single burn error yet and I burned at least 20 discs. I also burned a few DVDs on this drive too and those burned just fine.
Pros: -120hz is very noticeable, even when moving the mouse cursor around on the desktop.
-Hole in the stand for cable management.
-Ability to rotate monitor.
-S Switch to switch from desktop/web browsing mode to gaming mode.
-Black Equalizer is the biggest thing for games with a lot of dark areas where enemies always hide.
-Multiple ports in the back like HDMI for my 360.
-FASTEST response I have ever played with.
-USB ports on the side came in handy.
Cons: -Colors look washed out compared to my previous IPS panel monitor.
-Color settings from factory need a lot of touching up to get it right.
-Viewing angles aren't good compared to my IPS panel.
Other Thoughts: This is my first FPS gaming monitor and I have to say, this is one of the best purchases I made in a while. At first, I was pretty disappointed with the color options it came with from the factory but after a couple hours and adjustments later, I got it to where I'm satisfied. Then, I started gaming and that's where I saw the real difference. Compared to 60hz, 120hz is amazing. Very responsive, very quick, and insanely made me into a good player. I did not expect a monitor to make me play really well. I tried switching back to 60hz and that made me play dull again because the response time it took was very noticeable. It's like it's .1 sec slower, which isn't very big, but somehow, you can feel it when you move the mouse around. There's just this lag when you go back down to 60hz. I swear, I get called a hacker more often now because I can see in dark corners and how fast this monitor responds.
I thought I made the wrong decision when I bought this over my IPS panel monitor but since I game more often and IPS panels aren't very responsive (it ghost like crazy), I don't regret getting this monitor. Colors will never be accurate but it's good enough for me. It won't lose no eggs because of the colors. I know what panel I bought so I expected it.
Pros: Heavy keyboard. Prevents it from slipping upward like what happens to my current G510.
The feel of the keys as I type and while playing games. Has some resistance when stroking the keys compared to a normal keyboard where it feels like the key sticks when tapped all the way down.
Much smaller than my G510.
You can just feel the quality in this keyboard. To the point that words can't explain.
Not bad for the sale price.
Cons: Seems like the wrist rest is a different shade of white. If you're spending this much on a keyboard, you should expect some quality, ascetics wise.
Volume control could be better, like a scroll wheel at the corner like my G510.
Wish it was the black version that was on sale.
Other Thoughts: Someone reviewed this keyboard previously and said it was a "membrane" keyboard and it should be priced at $40. I can assure you that this is a full mechanical keyboard. There is actually a difference compared to the many keyboard that I've owned in the past that were all membrane. The keys are Cherry MX Black keys. If you wanted more of a clicky feeling and wanted to hear a lot of clicks when stroking a key, you should've looked into Cherry MX Blue keys instead. The Cherry MX Black is more aimed at gamers, in which, this MEKA keyboard is also aimed at.
The thick cables are also there for gamers that go to various LAN parties and they wanted to make sure the cable will not tear on you or even rip straight off the keyboard itself.
In short, you bought a gaming keyboard, not a workstation/office one. I would look into keyboards like the DAS keyboard that have the MX Blue along with MX Red and MX Brown keys.
Anyways, this keyboard was worth the money I spent on it. I don't think I'll ever go back to a membrane keyboard after using this. My very first mechanical keyboard and I'm more than happy to have one. Now to wait for the G710 to go on sale so I can scoop that one up.
