ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16GB SSD HDD Google Chrome OS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: My mother needed a new computer after her 10 year old laptop finally failed beyond my ability to repair it. Based on her computer usage, I knew ChromeOS was the way to go, but the Chromebook screens were too small for her eyesight, and she never moved her old 17" laptop off the desk anyway, so I set her up with this. I mounted it on the back of a 24" monitor with the included bracket and wired cheap speakers/keyboard/mouse to it. She loves it, and I love not having to maintain her OS anymore.

Cons: none so far

CM Storm QuickFire XT - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

5 out of 5 eggs the best keyboard I've ever owned 02/15/2015

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire XT - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: I purchased this keyboard in October 2013, 16 months ago and have had zero problems using it for 8-12 hours daily. The construction is STURDY (it doesn't flex at all) and they keyboard has more weight to it than was expected. It doesn't slide around at all thanks to the large rubber pads. Like all mechanical keyboards, this one has everything I need for gaming and work. Where it stands out, for me, is that this model has NONE of the things that I DON'T want.

Cons: The only thing I don't like is that the windows button lock feature doesn't stay on after shutting down the PC, but that is to be expected.

Other Thoughts: So many manufacturers try to gimmick-up high-end quality keyboards with extra macro buttons, LED displays, wrist rests, USB hubs, lighting schemes, etc. Maybe it does help sales, but I find it all off-putting. The lower-end mechanical keyboards seem to make compromises of quality with connectors that break and flimsy construction. This model is exactly the high-quality no-frills keyboard I was looking for. Thank you so much, CoolerMaster!

BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: worked great (until it didn't)

Cons: Ethernet and USB began intermittently failing functionality after 10 months of use. I see other folks here have had similar issues so I'm not the one-off. I won't be trusting this manufacturer again.
