Rereview

Zalman ZM-K200M USB Keyboard
Zalman ZM-K200M USB Keyboard

Pros: Cool looking keys, durable design

Cons: antonline

Overall Review: This is a rereview of this keyboard. My previous one shipped bad and my review was more on the customer service from antonline. I have been using the keyboard with the missing keys and it is nice in low light to be able to see the most used gaming keys. Zalman has been amazing at getting a replacement out for me.

Most Critical Review

Piece of garbage.

LG G Pad 7.0 LGV400.AUSABK Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8026 (1.20GHz) 1GB Memory 8GB Flash Storage 7.0" 1280 x 800 Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat), Upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop Black
LG G Pad 7.0 LGV400.AUSABK Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8026 (1.20GHz) 1GB Memory 8GB Flash Storage 7.0" 1280 x 800 Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat), Upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop Black

Pros: It has a decent battery life (see cons)

Cons: Slow, unresponsive most of the time with 5.0 on it, absolutely no memory management with the LG software on it, LG's version of Lollipop

Overall Review: Don't waste your time or money on this tablet. I've had mine for about 4 months now and I have had to factory reset it 3 times in attempts to get the thing to work right. Any time that you leave an app, it shuts it off in some attempt to save memory (which it fails miserably at) so you find yourself waiting for web pages to reload anytime you leave the browser (stock, Chrome, or Firefox) and I have a 100 meg internet connection. All in all, I am currently beating my head against a wall trying to get it rooted so I can install a version of Android that may actually work on this thing but at this point, if I break it trying to get it rooted, it won't be any big loss.

Works great

Pros: Inexpensive, "easy" to set up, decent range (I get signal in all parts of my house including all parts of my basement)

Cons: It was a real pain to get all devices working at the same time.

Overall Review: The only problem that I have had with this router is that I had to play with the settings quite a bit in order to get our 4 laptops, 1 desktop, 4 Kindles, and 5 phones all to play nice with the network. I got the settings right now and everything is connecting flawlessly.

Works Great

Pros: Very easy to install after seeing it done on Youtube. My rig would idle at 110 degrees F on a summer day and now it idles at just around 90 in the same conditions.

Cons: Seemed to make a lot of noise when I first got it from the air pushing through the fins but after several months of working around it I don't even notice it anymore. The "instructions" that come with it are garbage to say the least but there are Youtube videos that will walk you through the entire process whether you are working with AMD or Intel.

Overall Review: This was the first time I worked with a liquid cooler and I can say that I am not disappointed. I have been recommending it to everyone that I know who builds their own rigs or have them sitting where there is not a lot of air circulation.
