This review is from: Rosewill RIKB-11002 Slim Keyboard with Low Profile Chiclet Keycap Design - Retail
Pros: Used this keyboard for two years. Felt pretty good, and enjoyed the chiclet keys a lot more than those of a traditional keyboard. Nice and quiet too.
Cons: Keys do tend to stick... I am getting a new keyboard because the 'W' key is constantly stuck down. (Why, yes, I do play video games... how could you tell? :D)
While the keys were nice and quiet for a long time, most of them sound pretty loud and clacky by now.
Other Thoughts: You'll get a very good experience for the price; I was very happy with this keyboard and felt that I got my money's worth from it. However, don't expect to use it heavily for more than 18-24 months without it wearing out.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: features for dollars. Can't complain about an AM3 board with a radeon 4250 integrated graphics chipset. Everything's worked fine for me for a couple months, although I haven't had to use any PCI or IDE stuff yet. The integrated graphics did much better than I expected... my current rig is doing about as good at games as my old one which had an nvidia 8600 GT; if your games are older or not so graphics-intense you may be able to get away without a dedicated card
Cons: backside USB ports seem to be a little bit flimsy. Not enough to dock a star, and you should be fine once you get support from the backplate. The integrated graphics can sometimes give you green triangles after three or four hours of heavy gaming, but that's to be expected if you're gaming on an integrated card.
Other Thoughts: I really need to bite the bullet and drop $150 for a decent graphics card...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HAWKING HWR54G Wireless-G Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
Pros: 54 mbs, 2750 foot range, ten minutes after I opened up the box I was on the internet up in my room. Really great for the price. I didn't even need the CD or instruction guide.
Cons: I'm not sure whats doing this, but every two or three minutes the wireless disconnects for a second or two and then reconnects. This has not gotten in the way of browsing, though.READ FULL REVIEW
