This review is from: Razer Nostromo PC Gaming Keypad
Pros: Elegant and uncluttered design, high quality parts, excellent illumination, and clear lettering. I have a very large hand and it fits me well with the hand rest in the rear position (see cons). Finger buttons are well placed and most can be reached without moving the wrist. The macros are handy for passwords, frequently used chat messages, cheat codes, etc. With a little imagination, it has both gaming and desktop uses. Physically, it's more user-friendly and less cumbersome than it's competition.
Cons: With the hand rest in the rear position, the downward pressure of the balls of your hand tends to cause the whole unit to tip back in a see-saw action. This does not ruin it for me, but it seems that an extra 1/4 inch of plastic would have solved this obvious problem. The thumb button on the base (number 15) is clunky. The software is easy enough, except the macros, which can be a pain to edit.
Other Thoughts: A few overvaluations and nit-pics:
The reach from the #16 to the #15 is a bit long, even for someone with big hands.
The software is overly-complicated. My Saitek MagicBus had easier macros, unlimited saves and profiles, and printable profiles--and that was 7 years ago.
Having said all that, I LOVE this product and recommend it to anyone who games, or who just wants a comfortable, configurable supplement to the ball and chain that is the qwerty keyboard.
This review is from: Logitech Z623 200 w 2.1 Speaker System, THX-Certified
Pros: Bought for my son's dorm room. He tells me they work great in the small space. Loud, clear, and thumping--everything a 19yo wants. Good overall value compared to similarly priced speakers.
Cons: Obviously does not stand up to expensive boutique speakers, but great for laptop-type applications.
Other Thoughts: If you compare these to 5.1 speakers, you'll find you pay a lot for those extra 3 little speakers, or you won't get the power. 5.1 is great, but remember that they really only add anything if you can space them out. 2.1 is fine for small rooms.READ FULL REVIEW
