Keyboard is great!!! Software is garbage.

EVGA Z20 RGB Optical Mechanical (Clicky Switch) Gaming Keyboard 812-W1-20US-KR
EVGA Z20 RGB Optical Mechanical (Clicky Switch) Gaming Keyboard 812-W1-20US-KR

Pros: The keyboard itself is very wonderful. The clickyness of it reminds me of the old IBM model M clicky sounds. The TOF sensor is more than a mere gimmick that actually works and works well. The macro keys are another reason to look into this keyboard. I wasnt sure about optical switches until I used them and now wont be switching back. However

Cons: The Unleash RGB software is pretty bad. I downloaded it and plugged in the keyboard and the software would just force quit. I couldnt get it to stay open no matter how or where I plugged it in. Reboots and cold starts didnt help at all. I got older versions of the software and nothing helped. I went online and found plenty of others saying the same thing. That the keyboard needs a firmware update, and if your windows install was pretty old it wouldnt work properly. I read somewhere that support told people to reinstall Windows and the. It should work. If true, that is completely unacceptable. One workaround that I found and I tried and it eventually worked, was to install windows in a VM, download the software, and do the firmware update on the VM, and then it should work just fine on the host machine. It worked for me, but I almost bricked the keyboard doing the update because something happened to the VM and it froze up. I lost all lights and it wouldnt register in the software. I didnt give it enough ram and only one core so that was my bad. But I got get it back and the firmware updated and everything is fine now. I had the same experience with the x17 mouse, but that will be in its own review. EVGA, If your listening, fix your software. Gamers Nexus advertises for you and your keyboards, and Im going to email Steve and Co. and share with them my own experience and links to the many other customers that are having the same problems that hes running ads for. Please just fix your broken software.

Overall Review: Great keyboard, horrible software.

Pros: Ventilation is great. I use this case for my home server. Can handle many HDDs. Not too hard to take apart for mods. I removed the ESATA port and replaced it with USB-C.

Cons: The top is made of plastic, which is ok. The problem is the plastic clips that hold it onto the metal case can come broken. The 2 back clips on mine were. I fixed them myself instead of trying to RMA this big beast.

Overall Review: Its a pretty good case, if you need multiple drives or expansion cards. Its ventilation is great. However, if you have a specific use case for it, its hard to beat. 3 eggs because the top came broken, but at least for me not hard to fix. This is the 4th time this year Ive tried to review this case on here this year. Lets see if they let it go through this time.
