Rosewill RK-9000BL - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Black Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great Keyboard, Bad USB Port 01/05/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000BL - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Black Switches

Pros: -Keyboard feels excellent
-no obnoxious logos or styling
-construction is very solid except for....(see cons)

Cons: It amazes me how such a nice quality keyboard can be held back by such a cheap and simple part. The USB connector inside of my keyboard has broken which has brought it down to brick status.

Other Thoughts: It's really hard for me to understand (from a manufacturing stand point) the logic behind making such an expensive device fully depend on something incredibly cheap and brittle.

Would have originally paid an extra $5-$10 for a USB port that was more sturdy. Now, mine's broken and I'm buying another brand instead.

ASUS Transformer Pad 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - it's very fast
- it's cheap
- it has tegra 3

Cons: It took me three tries to find a tf300t that had acceptable light bleed on the screen.

The tablet seems pretty flimsy. All three of the tf300t's I've tried made popping and cracking sounds with the slightest bounce in my hands.

Compared to other tablets I've used such as the lenovo thinkpad tablet and Ipad 2 the colors on the tf300t seem a little flat and washed out.

Seems like the calibration on the touch screen could be a tad more accurate. When links are close together on a website I often find myself clicking something I don't want. I would say I had up to 50% less of an issue with this while using an Ipad 2.

Also I've noticed that it's possible to activate the touchscreen without actually touching it. If your finger is hovering too close to the screen you may inadvertently activate something without touching the screen.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a fast cheap 10.1" tablet look no further. However, don't expect this tablet to be superior in any other category.

I feel as if I reviewed this tablet pretty harshly, but I feel it's necessary to be picky with the amount of choices on the market.

If I used this tablet more than 30-60 mins a day I would be much more concerned with the cons listed above.

Don't get me wrong, this is a fine tablet to use but the main thing to understand is that you will be sacrificing overall quality for speed.

ASUS VE247H Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Price is pretty competitive for LED display
- on the fly input selection is handy
- has a handful of customizable settings to fit user's needs. (Just not mine)

Cons: You can't really say much about a monitor if you don't like its picture. For this particular monitor I felt that the color was considerably washed out. I compared it to a $100, 17" CCFL screen and I couldn't really believe it but the color on the 17" just seemed to be much more vibrant and better looking. I tried everything I could to fix the color to my liking on this ASUS monitor but just could not get rid of the purple tint/washed out feel.

Other Thoughts: By my standards this monitor just isn't up to par. However, my standards are higher than average. Overall the color issue really isn't THAT bad but it certainly is noticeable, if you have any doubt that this monitor is good enough for you then I do NOT recommend it.
