This review is from: Batman Arkham City PC Game
Pros: Outstanding graphics and smooth game play. Installation and set up was fairly quick and easy. This game works perfectly on my PC with an EVGA 680x Superclocked + GPU. I've also got the Asus VG278H monitor and this game is just stunning in 3D. The game picked up and switched to 3D as soon as I launched it, which is great because some games like WOW require you to change to 3D in in-game settings.
Cons: The game is difficult and definitely challenging. Some of the Augmented Reality Training parts will drive you bonkers trying to get it right. Or trying to figure out some of Riddler's puzzles to get his trophies.
Other Thoughts: I got this game for just $10. I'm having a blast playing it and it works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Das Keyboard is a solid keyboard. It's made by Costar, a Taiwanese company, and they make solid boards, i.e Filco, CM QF Rapid, WASD. It's easy to replace out all of the keycaps if you so desire. It's a preference, some people hate it, but I really like the glossy piano finish of the board. It has a USB hub. If you haven't typed on a mech keyboard before, you're missing out. This keyboard is great to type on. Got to love the clickety clack typing on blue cherry mx on a sturdy board. :)
Cons: The only con, which in my opinion is enough to dock an egg, is that the usb ports are on the side of the keyboard, not the back. If I plug in a usb cable, it sticks out to where my mouse is, that's not good. This is something that should have been considered before putting a board like this into production.
It'd be nice if the keys were PBT, and these are ABS, which means they will get shine on them more quickly. But there aren't many mech boards that come with PBT key caps anyway. Most of us switch out the key caps. I switched mine out to all white PBT key caps the day I got it.
Subjectively, some people don't like the gloss finish, but like I said, I quite like it, it makes the board look very classy, especially with all white caps. :)
Finally, again this is subjective, if you don't use the number pad you should look into getting a tenkeyless. Das doesn't make a tenkeyless board, so you might want to check out a Filco, Ducky YOTD, PBT Pure or Race.
Other Thoughts: Word has it that the new Das with the media keys are not made by Costar, and that these are being phased out, so I'm glad I got one. I would highly recommend this board. I got it when there was a 15% off all keyboards promo on newegg and got it for a little over $90. Great price for a great board!READ FULL REVIEW
