Pros: The G.SKILL GK-KCL1C4-KM780S10NA keyboard is very nicely presented and functions every bit as good as it looks. The Downloadable software allows for full customization of the RGB lighting and macro functionality. The CherryMX switches will last forever and give you precision control while gaming. The hookup is a very heavy duty braided cable that looks nice and will also last forever. There is a mic, headphone, and USB port on the keyboard allowing for the easy use of a headset and mouse without needing to climb into the computer desk or entertainment center to access your PC to hook it up. The media controls are nice and simple with a volume roller instead of buttons and they work without installing additional software in Windows 7. Built in cable holder for your headset wires to help keep them out of your way.
Cons: The only things I can mention here is that the cable is very thick and likes to pull on the USB ports a little so if your ports are old and loose you might have an issue with it loosing connection, and the software is a little hard to figure out but its doable.
Other Thoughts: I've been loving this keyboard and I'd say it is my new favorite with all it can do along with the exceptional build quality. I use all three memory banks to use different lighting profiles depending on what I'm doing on it. The gaming keys are sweet and you can still type with them on but I do prefer them to be off while typing. I love the added USB port for using my wireless mouse receiver which seems to eliminate all my lag issues with it since it only has to send a signal about 14 inches.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This router is stable, simple, and easy to setup. The cords are already plugged in right of the box which makes it easier for a novice to install it with minimal issues. The WiFi comes setup with a handy card that fits on the bottom of it to keep your passwords handy at all times. WPS works as it should. Steady 220mbps file transfer speeds while on 5ghz and smooth video streaming without stuttering from both the internet and local content.
Cons: There is no wall mounting and it only sits vertical which causes issues in some setups. No easy button or switch to turn off the radio. Areas with many wireless networks cause stability issues with 2.4ghz making it unusable. Intellistream works great for optimal streaming of content but once you stream anything it slows down your internet on all connected devices for downloads and file transfers alike. Nearly impossible to play PS4 online while streaming anything on the network. The range is great in open areas but walls cut the range down dramatically with a 2 decibel drop at just 5 feet away through only one interior wall without insulation. At just over ten feet and another wall there is a 6-8 decibel drop. Also experiencing up to 50% packet loss through one wall.
Other Thoughts: I like the simplicity of this router and others like it for the fact that just about anyone is able to get it hooked up and working using the supplied instructions and the automatic configuration worked well for AT&T Uverse internet. Once you turn off Intellistream it works much better for gaming and file transfers. I don't think you'd ever need to use it unless your internet is really slow. I'd recommend this router for the small family that doesn't do file transfers or much gaming but wants access to WiFi for streaming services and browsing the internet at decent speeds and doesn't want the hassle of setting it up. It works great for that but falls short of anything else and the more experienced user will not be happy here. I also believe the price is too high but you are paying for convenience not performance.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The MH530 is very bright and vivid and comes packed with inputs and functionality. The colors are vibrant and shadows are plenty dark with great contrast on a budget screen. Image looks very good at 100 inches and I'm sure it will look great even bigger than that. Video games work great on this with no noticeable blurring while playing PS4 and PC on it. Comes with integrated speakers and 3d functionality. Looks good even with the lights on although it's better with them off of course. Reading text while using my PC is much clearer than my HD TV causing less eye strain and making this perfect for presentations. The MH530 is easy to adjust and there are plenty of color options for fine tuning it.
Cons: The speakers are not very loud at all and it puts out a bit of heat.
Other Thoughts: I'm impressed! For a business projector the MH530 packs a punch for home entertainment. The image quality is excellent with very sharp lines and vivid color along with smooth movement making it great for gaming, watching movies, presentations, or just about anything. The only thing I don't like about it is the weak speakers but I see those as a bonus more than a deal breaker. It's easy to hook it up to a stereo system and get the sound you want using a standard 3.5 mm audio cable.READ FULL REVIEW
