This review is from: ASUS P8H77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: -Attractive and easy-to-use BIOS.
Cons: -See "other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: After a year, an issue arose where my computer would boot all the way to the log-in screen, then go black (while still playing sound). After using a few GPUs to check it, I sent this in to ASUS for "repairs." After paying for shipping, they sent it back in brand new packaging, cleaned and beautiful,
but in the same condition I had sent it in. Doesn't work. I'm done.
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
Pros: Very quiet typing, incredibly easy macro programming (both using the software and on-the-go), attractive lighting, very responsive, super comfortable to type on. You can program a few more keys than you would expect (Calculator key, media keys, disable/enable Caps Lock and Windows Key...)
Cons: Escape and function keys are really small; takes some time to get used to their position and shape. Same with the control button being next to the 6th macro key. You can't program the entire keyboard.
Other Thoughts: I got this expecting a clicky, tactile typing keyboard; I got a buttery-soft laptop-like keyboard. I still love it, but if you're looking for something with a ton of feedback, this might not be for you.
On the other hand, the software included was incredibly easy to use; a huge plus for this keyboard considering its functionality.
Pros: While it worked, great value, pretty good performance, quiet. Sapphire has a 2-year warranty outside of Newegg.
Cons: Emphasis on "while it worked." After a month it would suddenly lock out and turn off the display. This happened maybe once a week but recently it has gotten worse; it even happens at startup now. There are no signs of inadequate power or overheating at all, plus older or newer drivers don't help. For reliability and gaming without headaches, avoid this card for now.
Other Thoughts: TL;DR It constantly locks up under optimal conditions and drivers don't help. Look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
