Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Brown Switches
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Typing is great
Palm rest is ergonomic
Nice industrial design

Cons: Expensive
The lighting is annoying to me
Brown keys are loader than expected

Other Thoughts: I bought this more as a professional than a gamer. I wish it was possible to buy a bare bone and decide on key types and led options.

I leave my computer running 24/7 so having a red nightlight isn't enjoyable. For a $100+ keyboard a simple timer to disable lighting after 30 minutes would have been nice.

Asus Zenbook UX303LA-DS51T 13.3
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Fast, cool, and quiet
- Not an apple product
- Touch screen
- Looks good from certain angles
- 1080P better for battery and works 100%
- Backlit keyboard
- Stealth vents behind hinge

Cons: - Strange plastic to metal ratio
- Big screen bezel
- Backlit keyboard on when not needed
- A bit bulky for the weight
- Feels like a toy in some ways
- Anti gamer arrow keys
- Bottom venting easily covered during lap use

Other Thoughts: My biggest complaints are the metal/plastic choices. From the back (so everyone at a coffee shop except the user) has a great view of the most metal part, THE BACK OF THE SCREEN! While the underside feels like the plastic of a cheap toy. The part around the keyboard is a nice mix. I feel the priorities could have been better.

The tapered part under the front most edge again looks great from a certain angle but is hollow on the inside. It adds to the toy feeling again for user while maybe giving style points.

As for the positives, I like how this is like a Mac book Pro for smart people excluding the mentioned problems. It has the touch screen, more than enough juice to get serious work done and the mobility to do some light gaming away from home.

The coolness of this device makes it great for use on the lap or in bed. For me this replaced the 2in1 that I never used in tablet mode. Sadly this is a little too big for planes but then again a 8 in device or a phone would probably be better anyways.

Overall, the device is amazing only falling short on some cosmetic blunders. hopefully Asus fixes the keyboard back-lighting with software.

ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 (ME302C-A1-BL) Intel Atom Z2560 2GB DDR2 Memory 16GB Flash 10.0
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Cheap price
- Beautiful HD screen
- Fast Intel Processor
- 2GB memory
- Cameras and speakers are good

Cons: - Android 4.3 kinda slow on Intel
- 16GB storage for US version
- Some android apps don't work with Intel x86 (like adobe air)
- Some apps work but are slow (like windows RDP)
- No full usb port (need seperate adapter)

Other Thoughts: This tablet compares with the $500 dell venue 11 pro except it doesn't have windows 8. As for the tablet, i love it. The software is kinda a big drag on this device though. For casual users they won't notice the software bugs. Don't expect this to replace a laptop or netbook even though it almost could considering the hardware.
