HP Elite v2 Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 3rd time purchasing 08/19/2013

This review is from: HP Elite v2 Keyboard

Pros: Great Keyboard for wireless use. This is the third time I've purchased this model for personal use. Killed one with liquid, and another has keys had been broken off... but such is the normal wear and tear with toddlers in the house. I have also bought this keyboard for the work environment, and those are still running flawlessly 2 years since purchase. The wireless reception has been excellent, the feel of the keyboard is comfortable, and the slim design I prefer to any other wireless I've used.

Cons: Not bullet or toddler proof.

Other Thoughts: Since I first purchased this keyboard the price has dropped at least $10. Would have paid the original price. If you're looking for a good wireless keyboard and $30 is in you're price range, look no further.

Pros: Opened package, opened my case, installed the card, plugged in the power turned on my computer installed the drivers. Restarted the computer, started an online game I play regularly, raised the graphic setting to max, and not only was their improvement to the graphics, but the game ran completely smooth, no more lag. Then I added the second video card, hooked it up in CrossFire mode, and started up the Flight Sim "Rise Of Flight", set the graphics to maximum setting, I not only could play the game, it too ran smooth as silk.

Cons: Have to register with the manufacturer to download updated drivers. I personally don't like to give companies my private information, and can't see why my purchase of their hardware entitles them to it. Its not like someone is going to make pirate copies of their cards and sell them. Just a bad way to run self serve customer service.

Other Thoughts: If you want to run hi end games and can spend about $550 for two cards, you'll be happy with these. However be aware, you need 2 6 pin power connectors per card, and if you put in two cards you'll need 4 of the power connectors. Make sure your power supply has the plugs you require. I purchased a 700 W Modular PSU.

System configuration:
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO/U3S6 (No longer made)
AMD Phenom II Quad Core 3.2 GHz
16GB Crucial DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)
700W Modular PCU

Pros: Modular with all the connectors I required plus. Installed without a hitch. Has 4x 6+2 pin connectors, so powering up my new video cards for CrossFire was no problem.

Cons: Had to wait a few days for shipping. Not Newegg's or mfg's fault, I'm just used to will calling from Newegg for most of my parts... what can I say I'm spoiled, I like to pick up the parts the same day I order. Had to endure about a week of waiting to see if the new video cards I purchased (which required this more powerful PSU) would work well with my system.

Other Thoughts: Worth the wait, was very pleased with the modular connectors so I could keep excessive cabling out of my case.
