keep coming back to this keyboard mouse combo
Pros: standard layout with media keys, browser navigation keys and my favorite, the calculator key! long battery life, the longest i've experienced with wireless input devices. great range! uses one usb dongle for both devices.
Cons: function key between alt and ctrl not so functional for me, i'd rather have another windows key or the application key which is tucked in with the print screen key, a bit of an awkward reach. palm rest is not detachable. feels ok but i'd like the option to remove it.
Overall Review: i must've bought four of these by now because of the layout and generous amount of special keys. i took a star away because my latest purchase had a manufacturing defect: one of the media keys is shorter than the others and harder to press. wouldn't surprise me that after some use this key could become unpressable. one final thought, why can't someone make a keyboard that fills the space between the arrow keys and navigation (home, end, pageup, etc) keys? could easily fit 5 more useful keys!
Sturdy case, poor hardware
Pros: Sturdy construction with lots of room and three fairly quiet fans for a very reasonable price.
Cons: The included motherboard standoffs were half the length I was expecting. It seems they were so short that the video card wouldn't go into the PCI slot all the way. The card met the case's rear expansion slot frame before the card could fully connect to the motherboard and lock in. The only solution I could find was to buy "normal length" standoffs, which worked.
Overall Review: After my experience with poor standoffs and reading how some customers didn't get standoffs with theirs, I recommend having extras ready for this one. Rosewill, you made a solid budget case here, but please do something about the hardware standards!
Cons: doesn't come with standoffs or screws
Overall Review: i already reviewed this but newegg deleted it so i won't spend my time again on details. if you have a cpu and memory that match this refurb motherboard, go for it. beats having to spend hundreds on new parts. this board beeps at you if you don't have any memory installed. comes with sata cable but most people have spares already. would buy refurbished again!
great first 3d printer!
Pros: easy to put together prints great with pla similar features as higher priced printers
Cons: no thermal runaway protection? shipped by "A"
Overall Review: very pleased with the print quality! the fans are a bit loud but put it in a separate room and it's not bad, safer to not breathe the fumes anyway. there's talk online how this printer has no thermal runaway protection, which i believe has been fixed in firmware made by the community. update the stock firmware at the very least and like all 3d printers be attentive justin case of any issues. seller used "A" for shipping, can't say the company name due to censorship but you know who. if i wanted their involvement i would've bought this from "A" directly.
Pros: made use of a spare cpu, memory and psu from computers past. came with io shield. packed well with static bag and bubble wrap.
Cons: didn't include standoffs.
Overall Review: really glad i tried this refurbished mobo! at first it seemed the video was dead but found out this board wants ram installed before displaying any video. didn't come with standoffs but came with a sata cable, already have a dozen of those. saved me hundreds of dollars by reusing old but still speedy and dependable parts! will definitely consider buying more refurbished stuff in the future.
sounds good, mic is meh
Pros: sound is good, comparable to headsets twice the price lightweight and earmuffs are fairly comfortable long cable, better than too short
Cons: mic arm is rubber and doesn't easily adjust
Overall Review: if you don't need volume and mic controls built into the cable or surround sound, this is a very good value for price! the mic is its weakest feature imo. the rubber arm bends left and right only and the mic volume is on the low side so expect to add signal boost in your sound settings. overall i'm satisfied with it and may buy again!
