Newegg Eggs Model# 3gg0v3r3a5y - OEM
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Chick of death 04/01/2011

This review is from: Newegg Eggs Model# 3gg0v3r3a5y - OEM

Pros: Nice ovoid aesthetic

Cons: Everything else.
Eight out of ten were DOA. The other three starting clicking, clearly actuator location errors. Fortunately I discovered that the problem was temperature-dependent,, so I put them in the freezer and the clicking (and peeping) stopped. I then ran Windows egger checking, which showed numerous bad sectors. When I opened the eggs, I saw that the problem was obviously a firmware problem with the yolk -- the entire inside was way too firm.

Other Thoughts: Newegg would not RMA them because I had broken the shells. I attempted several times to contact the manufacturer by telephone, but all I got were clucks.

ENERMAX Premium Aurora KB007U-S Silver 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Aluminum Standard Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: good looking when new, good key feel when new,usb ports very handy

Cons: Key finish worn within 6 months of purchase. Keys will occasionally stick and need to be taken off and wiggled back in place. Tiny backspace key.

Other Thoughts: I reallly want to like this keyboard. I paid a lot for it, I am really spoiled by its handy usb ports, and the solid aluminum base is cool. But the keys are black plastic with silver paint on them, and the finish is wearing off all of them. I can no longer see the N on my N key; it's just a black dot.
While I like the keyboard feel, every few weeks one of the keys starts sticking and I need to remove and replace it to get it to work. I thought I'd get used to the small backspace key; I'm fine with the one on my laptop. But on a full-size keyboard, it's still hard to find.
