Pros: Simple easy to install; unobtrusive and almost invisible.
If you have installed RAM you can install this.
Cons: Since this was an OEM purchase, i only got the drive, not even a holding screw; right now it's on the MB without a retention screw.
The standard M3 MB screws don't fit.
Overall Review: Not much, have this for about 4 months an it works without any issues.
I have a NZXT H440 case and have zero wires for drives (case does not support optical drives) and having his drive the size of a gum stick makes the case look wonderfully professional and clean from the side window.
Pros: Works right out of the box
speed is better than wifi
consistent data speeds
Cons: I have only had this device for a day now and so far it works without any issues
Overall Review: It works right out of the box, like any proud tech genius worth his salt, I pulled the thing out the box, tossed the manual to the dogs (ok well, my daughter) and proceeded to connect these up.... and they work. Since I live in a single family home I really didn't bother with the encryption or passwords.
I can stream live TV from my server (ceton inifitv) over this thing much much more reliable and shutter free which is what I wanted it for.
It was good deal at round 50 bucks on shell shocker.
Pros: Effortless typing, low fatigue, low noise keys
back light, brightness and color control for back light
palm rest included
Cons: After a few months of use, the paint over the most frequently used keys started peeling off till all you saw was three glowing keys... No big deal since I don't actually look at the board during typing, but try explaining that to my father who is linguistically and technologically challenged, he hunts and pecks the keyboard while typing.
After about a year of use, the "F" and "D" keys would take intermittent vacations; they would stop working intermittently the keys completely stopped working within one month of the problem starting.
The multimedia buttons are a good add on however the brightness knob (yea its not the volume knob) which is rarely used worthlessly dominates the multimedia keys which surround the volume, mute and FF/RW keys. To make it worse, the mute and the sleep(?) buttons are one rocker... try muting the voulme in the dark and accidently put the machine to sleep!
Overall Review: I have had this keyboard for a couple of years now (did not buy from NewEgg) and bought it on recommendation from a friend and it saw average usage on my primary PC, about 2~3 hrs a day and a couple more on the weekends. With that type of usage most keyboards should last years not one year and a few months.
I dusted off my original gaming keyboard, the original G15 with monochrome LCD which I have had for who knows how long.
Probably wont' recommend this product to anyone just based on the longevity and quality of the device.
Pros: Rock solid board. I bought this for on 2/2010 for my HTC/File Server which is designed to stay on 24/7 365 days a year.
Thus far, it has been working without any headaches since I set it up.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: I have a Athlon II X2 245 processor with 4 1GB memory sticks, 5HDDs and a BluRay reader powered by an 80+ certified power supply combined with Windows 7 professional. Simply put it, it just works, I installed the drivers from Asus and haven't had any issues at all even after running this setup for over year and 4 months.
Pros: I bought this from Newegg on 9/7/2007 for my Q6600 workstation. Yesterday, I just replaced my aging Nvidia 8800 GTS with the Efinity 5870 and I realized how reliable and powerful this PSU unit is. Granted I have a high end UPS attached to the workstation but still the voltages and amps are on the spot!
Cons: none- only if you consider paying $199 excessive for a PSU that will last over 3 years with heavy usage without a single hiccup
Overall Review: owned it since 2007 and probably till it dies... which it does not show any signs of doing so far. Great product
