Pros: The card reaches its rated speeds in my testing, or at least close enough.
It has a lifetime warranty.
Comes with the adapter to I can use it with my camera.
Easily fast enough for 4k recording using my camera.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: The warranty on something like this is kind of pointless, IMO. Yeah, it is nice that this has a lifetime warranty, but for the low cost of this item I wouldn't even bother using the warranty. If this ever breaks, I'm just buying a new one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I don't think it is necessary to go over all the features that the K70 RGB is already known for(great build quality, RGB lighting, etc...).
The main thing we are interested in here is the MX Speed switches. And I have to say I like them. They are closest to Red Switches, IMO. I already had a K70 RGB with Red Switches, and these Speed switches seem very similar. The main difference is I do not have to push the key down nearly as far on the new Speed switches. This leads to much faster typing, as well as a lot less typing fatigue when typing for long periods of time. Of course this also leads to the obvious faster reaction time when gaming. The Speed switch is definitely my new favorite switch type.
The other improvements are minor. The long keys, the ones that have the extra metal supports under them, are definitely a lot quieter on the new K70 compared to my old K70. Especially the space bar. And my old K70 is only a few months old, and the keys were always loud. The new K70 with speed switches is much quieter.
The addition of a USB pass through is also very nice to have. Though USB3.0 would have been nice.
Cons: The biggest con I have is that I have to install a second Corsair software on my computer to manage the keyboard. This is the same complaint I had in my original K70 RGB review. I already have Corsair link installed, I see no reason that the keyboard and lighting control couldn't be integrated into one program. Now I have two Corsair logos running in the system tray. There really is no excuse for this. This is the only reason I took an egg off of the score.
The other minor complain is the space bar. I don't like the ridges. It doesn't fit with the rest of the keys. I would have liked them to include a second space bar that was smooth, like they included extra ridges keys, so I had the choice of either smooth or ridged.
Other Thoughts: I'm glad they didn't do what some other keyboard makers are doing and include a headphone pass through. I have always found these useless. The headphone cable always gets in my way, and most of the time you have to plug the keyboard into your speaker ports in the back of your computer. My speakers are already plugged in there. If I want to use headphones, I use the headphone port on the front of my case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Stock firmware is good enough for most people
-Wireless coverage is very good
-Wireless speeds are great
-Replaceable antenna's that use the standard antenna connector
-Good ol' fashioned blue and black color scheme
-Support for 3rd party DD-WRT firmware
-eSATA is something you don't see on a lot of routers, and very nice
-The two USB ports worked perfectly
Cons: -Stock firmware not the best out of the box, but after a firmware update it was very good
-The WPS button is on the back of the router, it should be on the front
Other Thoughts: This definitely is a worthy replacement to the legendary WRT54GL. Linksys is really going back to their roots with this router. It is amazing how they went from a great router that supports so many 3rd party firmwares, the WRT54GL, then spent time locking down their routers to make it harder for people to sue 3rd party firmware, and now are openly advertising that this router supports 3rd party firmware. It is just wonderful to see a company going back to their roots and doing what made the successful in the first place.READ FULL REVIEW
