Good storage unit at a reasonable price.
Pros: Plugs in, boots up loads into Win computer no sweat. USB 3.0 one cord is always a bonus. Transfer time is OK.
Cons: The plastic case is noticeably sharp around the top edge of the unit. Possibly sharp enough to cause a plastic cut. Suggest using an emery board to remove that.
Overall Review: i would recommend this unit. It's at the lower end of the price range but if it lasts as long as some of my higher-priced units, or my 'cheap' HDs, I'll be happy.
If you're into RGB effects
Pros: Great RBG lighting and programming. Configurable keys. 'Raised keys - ie no dirt 'wells' Sets up easily, support accessible.
Cons: Some key figures are hard to make out : all enclosed figures have a strange 'sprue' effect where part of the character seems 'blacked out'. No problem for touch typists.
Overall Review: Good substantial unit, programable for individual uses and taste. Reasonable price.
Pros: This is my 4th GSkill memory stick. The others are all, still, cracking away. The oldest is going on 5
Cons: I have to take the cover off my case to install it.
Overall Review: It works. No heat. No muss fuss or bother. And I have a board that was quite finicky when I bought it. It wouldn't fire up with the stick of memory I had bought for it, not realizing it was supposed to be AMD chip specific. GSkill doesn't have that, or any other issues I can detect.
Does what it's supposed to do.
Pros: So far so good. My last BlueRray drive did the same until the day it topped working. Hopefully this one will last longer. Bundled CyberLlink software is a bonus/ Looking forward to seeing how that works compared to other burning softare.
Cons: The power cords are quite short. Making it a little difficult to mount this drive on my rig (top vented for cooling - and side mounting us an access problem.
Overall Review: I'm hoping that Newegg is better than usual with Air Miles. Having to log in through Airmiles Shops rather tan just using an Airmiles number on the Newegg site when ordering. is problematic. Points for purchases often 'go missing'
