Pros: The mechanical clicks take me back in time. Every keystroke is brilliant. It is great for MMO for the repeated clicks seem to wear down other keyboard quite quickly. Not the case with this guy.
Cons: NEVER EVER EVER EVER get water on or near this guy. I splashed a bit on the num pad when setting down a water glass too hard. Even after wiping it off things when crazy. Keys stopped working, A key would type P etc. after an hour the whole thing wouldn't work, and the lights wen't off. Left it unplugged for a week plugged it back in and everything is working fine. Id hate to see a lot of water hitting it... If your prone to spills like I am get the protection plan.
Looks Mean alot
Pros: Big. Lots of space and great airflow to keep all my components cool. With 4 fans its rather quiet. The removable motherboard tray makes it a breeze to change up hardware. And the nice cubbies are great for quick and secret storage. Also the case looks amazing especially with the lights out.
Cons: So far I've only had two issues with this case. I mounted a 140mm stock fan to the bottom of the case and when I turned it on all I heard was the fan. It appears the blades are actually hitting the bottom of the case. A quick fix with a cable tie inbetween the fan and the case solved the problem and its hidden enough so unless your looking for it you can't see it, however I feel I shouldn't of had to do that so it loses an egg. Also the magnet system that keeps the door closed is not strong enough to keep it closed during transit and I find myself using a piece of tape to ensure i don't have it swing open and accidently break off on something when I move it. If you don't move the case much it obviously isn't a problem but I love to show it off and have moved twice for work.
Overall Review: I wish I could give half an egg. 4 Seems to high yet 3 Seems to low.
Used as Monitor
Pros: Looks sharp (no pun intended) as monitor. Price was great, could of waited till holiday deals to get better but needed replacement.
Cons: Found "optimal" settings online. They were far from it. Lots of noise and the picture especially dark colors just looked bad when in TV Mode. Audio was also off. It would sometimes be really quiet I'd turn it up 2 or 3 and then BAM suddenly it would come back to life and blow me out of my chair. There is a small cluster of dead pixels in the lower left corner that were there out of the box.
Overall Review: The price has gone way up since i purchased it. There are better TV's for the price it's listed at. As a monitor it works great. As a Tv, Not so much that's where the egg loss comes from. It was the best deal at the time. Ended up buying another TV wish i could of used this one for that purpose.
Good for what I do.
Pros: Durable. Microphone quality is better than expected for a low price headset. The microphone itself adjusts well. Audio is good too. Adjusts well for different sized heads. Works very well for what I do: ventrillo, and making phone calls from google voice is crystal clear.
Cons: Very uncomfortable after an hour or two of use. I started putting them around my neck and running audio through my computer speakers to avoid wearing it. The ear cushions do very little. But for 10 bucks I wouldn't expect them to. The volume control looks cheap and was DOA out of the package.
Overall Review: I used to buy the microsoft livechat headsets due to a discount where I worked. I probably wen't through 4 or 5 of them before coming across this. I was sure since it was so inexpensive it's quality would be the same. Was I wrong. Similar audio, better mic quality and way better durability. For a fraction of the cost of a livechat. I am very rough on my components and these have surprised me.
Pros: This a great mouse for MMO gaming. I had the previous version of the Naga, but found myself clicking multiple buttons at once. The raised buttons and unique curve of each one makes it easier to click where I need to.
Cons: I liked the blue design better, it goes well with my computer. Maybe add a customization LED light. Not all builds are equal.
Pros: Handles wow on ultra with no problems. Even GTA IV with a crazy number of mods has no issues. Runs extremely cool with dual fans.
Overall Review: Just harping on service of today... I used to buy BFG exclusively for the Lifetime warranty they provided. I once had a card go bad and they shipped me a better card at no extra charge to me. (Maybe its why they went under?) This card comes with a 3 year 'limited' warranty. Heres to hoping I never have to use it.
