This review is from: Mad Catz MCB43109N002/02/1 S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Keyboard
Pros: Very nice keyboard, I love the look and it's very comfortable on my wrists. I have a RAT 9 mouse and I figured what the hell why not get something that matches a little bit. I love the customization with the keyboard as well as the lcd screen. Recently there was a update that allowed one to add the strike 7 to AIDA64 so you can add screen and all kinds of stuff to the lcd.
The keyboard is rather sturdy of course the metal frame helps. I know a lot of people knock the membrane keys but i really hate the mechanical key noise so for me I could care less.
Cons: Really the biggest problem I have with the board is getting it set up. I tried for some time to just load the driver for the board. I only could get to the splash screen that said connect the usb and then nothing, the next button would not work. I was using the latest driver 7_0_33_91_x64 but nothing. I then found 7_0_28_20_x64 driver and the darn thing installed. After that I installed the new software and I was golden.
Installing the firmware was easy after the driver and software was done. After installing the new firmware I rebooted and had my boot screen freeze then restart. After some digging found out that if you have a x58 MB this keyboard doesn't like you. I tried unplugging the power but I just got a keyboard error. So until I upgrade I have a old KB plugged in on the floor.
Other Thoughts: Besides the work around with the drivers and the board not liking to boot on a x58 platform it's a great keyboard. I was looking at the G19 for some time but I like the over all look and the customization on this guy a lot more. Sure it's a bit high on the price but it has a lot to offer as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great fan for the price. Does what it suppose to do and it's not very loud.
Cons: None so farREAD FULL REVIEW
Cons: Well they don't last. Had it for less than 2 months and two of them started to make a grinding sound. Talk about total rubbish. Now I have to deal with taking them out and then getting new ones. Talk about pathetic.
Other Thoughts: Please save yourself time and money, move along on this and don't buy them. Sad too, since my other coolermaster fans work just fine. I have three coolermaster cases, and various other fans but these are junk.READ FULL REVIEW
