Microsoft  SIDEWINDER X4  Keyboard - Retail
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Buy this keyboard! 06/27/2012

This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros: Crazy good value for money

Cool red backlighting

Crisp keypresses (Harder, no flex once you hit bottom like cheaper keyboards)

Media/volume adjustment keys are useful

Keyboard looks really cool

Real antighosting. I tested, and you can press every key on this thing and they'll all register.

Cons: Keypresses are slightly loud because of the crisp keypresses.

Macro keys are placed awkwardly, making them useless in games where hitting them quickly is important (FPS, action)

You do need to do a manual driver update if you want the media keys to work with iTunes. Intellikey 8.2 on Microsoft's site, if anyone's interested. Takes 30 seconds.

Other Thoughts: The cons are really nitpicking - this keyboard is perfect for anyone who wants a comfortable, accurate, backlit wired keyboard.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) DirectX 11 GV-N570OC-13I Rev2.0 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Quiet
-Cool looking
-Powerful! I get 50-60 fps with BF3 at 1080p and ultra settings.
-Fairly inexpensive for a 570
-Good warranty

Cons: -Driver software may come with some bloatware, no biggie.
-Pretty large. Fits into my HAF 912 after I remove the hard drive rack though.

Other Thoughts: I've been running it at stock clocks so I can't attest to it's overclockability.

Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Cheap (in price, not build)
-Cool looking
-Plenty of space for my GTX 570
-2 fans come with it, room for 200mm
-Can fit pretty large CPU coolors/water cooling

Cons: A bit of interference from the front panel audio. It works and all, but cables have some buzzing when the computer is working. I took off an egg because I spent hours troubleshooting this problem only to find that it's just the front panel that's a bit glitchy. Unless the room is really quiet you won't notice, and this front panel issue is common in quite a few computers so it's not exactly isolated.

Other Thoughts: I am happy with my purchase, and especially since it was so cheap. Great case!
