Pros: Had for years and still working fine, don't use the lightscribe so I can't say much on that.
Pros: Lightweight, grips make keep the stand in place and holding the laptop perfect. Being able to position the fans where ever I want has got to be the best thing about this. Putting them near my GPU and HDD helped so much with taking away the extra heat.
Cons: USB for the fans is a little to big.
Cons: EVERYTHING, this is garbage. I purchased 1, failed after 4 months. Manufactures didnt do a darn thing, bought another failed after 14 days.....
Overall Review: GO WD PERFORMANCE (BLACK)
Pros: Still using this years later, been pushing its limits and specially with my recent 1070 purchase. Has a Corsair H80i GT running on it, multiple fans, 2 hdds, 2 ssds, 2 media drives, razer blackwidow and naga. LOVE the texture of the PSU and the braided cords are perfect, will definitely be changing the colors though.
Overall Review: Really wish I would have went with a bigger PSU and not a bronze. But worth it on the price.
Pros: Loved this keyboard, took any beating of gaming, no matter how long I played. Having the LCD was pretty great and making tons of apps for it was great as well.
Cons: Keys rubbed off a little faster than I thought they would, the USB on the keyboard wasn't too great for charging things.
Overall Review: Great keyboard, but theres a lot of better keyboards out there for better price.
Pros: I purchased my first one 3 years ago, my second last year, and just purchased my 3rd today with a mount. These monitors have been amazing for me. 1ms response time has helped me a lot in my gaming, being my previous monitor was a 19'HP from 2005 lol. Quality has always been great and the white has matched my theme perfectly.
Cons: I was extremely disappointed when I found out months after my first purchase these were not VESA mountable.... But I did find a solution that allows me to still mount them.
Overall Review: If you don't plan on mounting these they are amazing monitors without going 2k or 4k and spending an absurd amount of money. However if you go with mounting in the future or right away, invest in some VESA Mount Adapters.
Pros: Fan is years old and constantly on, I have rubber insulators on them just incase they ever made noises, LEDs are still as bright. For being a odd brand theyve worked pretty darn good. The entire fan being that transparent green looks really great when the LEDs hit it.
Pros: Fan is years old and constantly on, I have rubber insulators on them just incase they ever made noises, LEDs are still as bright.
Pros: I've had this in my son's build for years now, its always on, and set to the highest brightness. Best investment I've made to match the color. The clips to keep the strip held in place are amazing.
Pros: Still running strong in my sons build after years, he doesn't play anything intensive but I've ran some game that were intensive and ran great. Very comparable to a GTX 760 SC
Cons: Probably not the best choice to get these days, get something more current its not worth the money to get these, even if you crossfire.
Pros: This lasted me years before I finally in December 2016 purchased the 1070 FTW. Played a lot of games at max setting and even some of the new games it could but with frames around 45.
Cons: Unless you're going to 2 or 3 way SLI these just go with a 1070 or 1080 to get your frames.
Overall Review: Would have recommended this years ago, now I only would if you can get them for around $50 to $70 and get 2. Otherwise just save up for 1000 or 900 series GTXs
Pros: Had the fan for about 5 months now and it along with other Xigmatek fans have kept my PC always under 39C when running almost any game. These fans are quit and fit amazing with the HAF 912. Plus they are the perfect orange to match my theme.
Cons: NONE AT ALL!
Pros: This is by far the best gaming mouse in my opinion. I'm sure there are better but really, 17 buttons, red LED, pulsating molten logo. Adjustable DPS with the Razer Naga program. The ability to change what the 1-12 buttons are for. Either having them as the numbers above the keyboard or the numpad. If you want to save of power you can turn off the LEDS. Left, right, scroll, 2 side buttons are all programmable. Multiple Profiles for the mouse, Macros. Honestly this mouse is way worth the money.
Cons: The LEDs are not orange :(
Pros: This wireless mouse is really good, response is fast for not being a gamer mouse. Best part is it only uses 1, yes 1 battery! And just to test it out I put a cheapo dollar store battery in and the mouse still lasted weeks of gameplay. Another pro is the nano-receiver, that way you don't end up like my buddy with a 2 inch stick sticking out of your laptop and SNAP!
Cons: When the battery dies lol
Pros: For the price and the specs it wasn't to bad at all. Can handle most games, some higher end ones like Crysis it can't even play even on the lowest settings. For an I3 first gen processor it's pretty solid.
Cons: Refurbished..... Battery is done for so I always have to keep it plugged in otherwise after 5 minutes of leaving the power adapter off it just shuts off and I run into issues. The thing is ALWAYS on fire. Even with my fan cooler stand it's still always hot, don't even let me tell you how hot it get's when playing a game.
Overall Review: Wouldn't recommend getting it refurbished. Brand new this laptop is definitely worth it.
Pros: It's fast, good size for basic use. Can put on what I actually need without bringing a large external with me.
Cons: I've seemed to have lost it 12/1/2012 lol
Pros: This card is pretty dang good for not needing to empty your bank account. Best part is it does NOT need a power supply. It ran off the motherboard. This card was literally the same exact model I had before but didn't require a power supply for some odd reason. I bought this back in 2010 and my buddy loves that I gave it to him and saved him $100+
Cons: You can't turn the settings on most games to max.... What do you expect though for a cheap card.
Overall Review: Worth getting if you just need to get a card to play games.
