Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Very solid, lasting keyboard 09/25/2013

This review is from: Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard

Pros: -Strong backlight with a choice of colors
-Media keys are very handy (mainly used in my case with iTunes).
-Nice design.
-Rubber feet are great, no movement during usage.

Cons: -None, generally speaking.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this keyboard since 2007 or 2008, and, with the exception of a bit of black paint coming off the edges of certain keys and the dimming of some blue LEDs, everything works as well as the day I bought it. It's the lasting nature of this very solid keyboard that compelled me to type a review so long after purchasing it (and after it has likely been discontinued, anyway). This has been my primary keyboard through my final year or two of high school and all of college, and that it has lasted so well despite it all is remarkable. At this rate, the only reason I think I'll ever have to replace it is sheer boredom and want of something novel. The media keys work like a charm, the backlight is perfectly adequate--it's just a well-designed keyboard.

Of course, it's not as though I've been able to compare it to many keyboards over the years, save for stock keyboards in computer labs and laptop keyboards. It also of course lacks macros that some may like for gaming. Weight those issues as you well if you're ever considering picking up this keyboard (used), but for my money, Saitek created a product with truly incredible value that has satisfied me without fail and outlasted the desktop for which I initially bought it by years.

CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Was a fine cooler while it worked.
-Lights, grips, and USB run-through were all nice to have in a cooler.

Cons: -The product died after only a year. The lights still got power, but the fans were not. For $65, my expectations were higher.
-Cooler Master customer service is a cruel joke. Emails were completely ignored, and it took them forever to "resolve" the issue. By "resolve," I mean claiming that they never received the product after I shipped it and telling me "tough luck!" The poor customer service and warranty experience is why I will never buy a Cooler Master product again. They attempted to blame it on the post office, but from my experience with them, it's much more likely that Cooler Master misplaced the product than the USPS.

Other Thoughts: If 6 months to a year is all you want this cooler to last, go for it. If not, find something else. The product had what I wanted in a cooler, but between its poor lifetime and Cooler Master's laughable service, it's not worth it.

Sennheiser - Surround Sound Headphones (HD 555)

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Headphones 05/09/2007

This review is from: Sennheiser - Surround Sound Headphones (HD 555)

Pros: The sound quality of these headphones is amazing. I'd recommend them to anyone. Aside from the sound quality, they're extremely comfortable.

Cons: Nothing to do with the sound itself, but I wouldn't recommend these for MP3 players. The connector won't even fit with the case I have for my Ipod. The connector is about as tall as an Ipod, and they're fairly large for use in public places if you're one who enjoys exercise with their headphones.

Other Thoughts: Overall, these are excellent headphones.
