This review is from: GAMDIAS GKB2010-BK HERMES ULTIMATE Gaming Keyboard (Cherry MX, Black Switch)
Pros: It is a nice, solid keyboard. I was looking for a backlit keyboard with black switches (I have large fingers and need something with more resistance) and this keyboard was on sale, so I took the risk buying it (no reviews when I bought it).
It is really nice to type on, some keys do have a different feel than the rest (some are 'mushier' than others, not a big deal)
The backlighting is pretty solid, not too bright/dull and seems pretty even
The wristpad is nice and big which is really nice for me (that and the magnets are great, my last built in wristpad connected with plastic latches that broke really easily
The macros are really nice to have even though I don't use them too much
Cons: Like the other user (the one that gave it 2 stars) I was having some serious problems with keys repeating. Well, at first I thought it was just me fat-fingering the key for a micro-second too long, but after switching back to my other keyboard I decided that there was just some flaw with this keyboard.
I figured that since this problem seems common (as the other guy had the same problem with multiple boards), that it was either a mechanical flaw or a software flaw. I have had this too long to return it, so I prayed that it would be a software flaw.
I downloaded the Hera application for the keyboard, which I used before and found out there was a way to update the firmware. My previous firmware was somewhere in the 50's and the current firmware is somewhere in the 70's. I think newegg just had an old stock of these keyboards with older, problematic firmware as updating it solved my issues instantly. I have not had a single key repeat since doing it.
Other Thoughts: TL:DR; if you have a problem with keys repeating, try updating the firmware with the Hera app. It solved my issue and made me extremely pleased with this keyboard.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-02 Ball VGA Cooler
Pros: I almost never write reviews (especially for something I have only used for literally 5 minutes), but felt that I needed to for this GPU cooler. This thing is awesome. I was contemplating going water cooling, but decided that $50 to see if I could go cheaper seemed like a worthwhile risk (and it was!). It took maybe an hour to install, kind of self explanatory by the pics. I ran the Tomb Raider benchmark that used to shoot my MSI 7950 TFIII to 70+ degrees after one run, and it never went higher than 52 degrees. It is also infinitely quieter (fans at max all the time). I am so happy that I took a risk on getting this cooler, saved at least $200 vs getting a GPU only loop. Sure, it may no be as good as a custom loop, but it is cheap and works extremely well.
Cons: The instructions were hard to read due to me being far sighted and the text being too small, and it came with a heatsink that was shorter than the rest (there were plenty more normal sized ones), which I didn't realize until after it was stuck on, but other than that, this is a solid cooler.
Also the tape is hard to use, but seems to work well enough.
Other Thoughts: This thing is great, and if I ever get another GPU that is supposed to have decent cooling but doesn't, I would definitely get another Gelid GPU cooler.
Will update later with more info when I do more testing, I was just so happy I had to write a review asap.
Pros: Cheap, I got mine for $30 with a one year exchange warranty (just in case)
Works okay, see cons
Great if you are buying for storage
Cons: I have a 1tb green WD HDD as my primary drive, so I got this to replace it as the primary drive because it is 7200rpm vs 5400rpm of the green drive. So I installed windows and I had trouble reading, writing, and transferring files between the two drives, so I booted up the green one (which still had everything on it) and everything was fine: transferring, reading, writing.
Other Thoughts: I probably would have gave the drive 3 eggs, since there is no 3.5, but for the price and since it does what I (now) need it to do I rounded it up.
Also the boot speeds were the same between the two drives, I do no know what is up with that, but whatever. (I did try reinstalling windows to no avail, and I do not think that it was my windows disc, it worked on another computer.)
