IOGEAR GKM561R Black 2.4GHz Wireless HTPC Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This keyboard is ideal for home theater uses. I have yet to find any solution that works better than a combo trackball and keyboard.

Cons: It drops keystrokes every once in awhile (not too bad, but it's still not something you'd want to type an email on or anything long).

Other Thoughts: Not really a con, but the mouse buttons fell kind of cheap as if they won't hold up on the long term. However, I accidentally smacked it hard enough to knock off the enter key, and when I stuck it back on everything still worked fine.

If you need an HTPC keyboard, get it. Otherwise, don't.

APEVIA X-TELSTAR-JR G-Type X-TSJGT-RD Red SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This case looks great. Despite what others have said, I found the fan control very straightforward. Screwless drive holders are nice.

Cons: When I first bought the case, the LCD screen didn't work. Apevia promptly sent me a new one, though I had to pay to send the old one to them. The light on the Apevia logo is no longer working.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very pleased with the purchase of this case. It fits an ATX board with no problem. It could use better wire management. I would definately reccomend installing the third fan in the front of the case, it helps airflow a good bit.

APEVIA X-TELSTAR-JR G-Type X-TSJGT-RD Red SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This case looks great, and the fan controller and display is a nice addition. Cooling is good when a third fan is installed (there are two that come with it but room for one in the front). The plastic rails for the hard drives and the latches for optical drives work quite well. The case itself is of very sturdy construction.

Cons: When it first came, the display on the front wasn't working. I had to send it back to Apevia, and they replaced it quickly. Also, the led that lights up the Apevia logo on the front of the case broke. The clips for the PCI cards are somewhat fragile, and don't really hold the cards in that well. The standouts are very easily cross-threaded, but a few extras are provided.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case for a budget build that you want to look good. I wouldn't reccomend it for SLI/Crossfire, and many non-stock CPU coolers probably won't fit. If you're willing to put up with a few idiosyncrasies for a good look at a great price, this is the case for you.
