Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Good keyboard, not worth its price 11/19/2014

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches

Pros: I like the brown switches and the fact that it is a LED backlit computer, but that is about all I like about it so far.

Cons: LED's don't properly fill the keys, so the top half of a key is well lit while the bottom bit (close to the user) is dark and barely shows any light at all. Really bothers me for the number keys and num pad.

As other people have pointed out, the software is very buggy and clunky. It took me several hours to get the color profile to do what I wanted it to do, which was just be solid blue. The WASD and arrow keys would pulse white no matter what I tried.

Other Thoughts: It's not worth $180 to me, but I'll stick with it. I wouldn't recommend it to a friend as it is now, though. I should have gotten a Ducky Shine or something with solid blue LED's and nice rubberized keys. I would have just gotten the K70 with blue LED's for $120 but that has been out of stock for a long time, and I doubt it's coming back now that the RGB's are here. Shame, really, because you give up having one rich vivid color in exchange for being able to have lots of colors. I only picked this keyboard to have a blue LED mechanical keyboard. Don't buy this keyboard if you don't have patience for software and if you don't want to have rainbows rolling across your keyboard or something that actually uses the $50 feature that is custom color keys.

EVGA 03G-P4-2782-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card w/ EVGA ACX Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a Titan for $500.
I EASILY overclocked my GTX 780 far beyond what a stock Titan will do without having to touch voltages at all. I'm running 1200MHz core and 7GHz memory clock without adjusting power at all. Never gets hotter than 60C. ACX fans are very quiet. I can play every game I have at maxed ultra 1440p with 60+ FPS (except Crysis 3, and strangely, Battlefield 4). Very sturdy PCB, runs every game I have flawlessly, comes with EVGA's winning customer support, and that 3 year warranty. 3GB of VRAM is also way more than enough to accommodate my 2560x1440p monitor. I rarely use half of my VRAM, if even close to that.

Cons: I don't have two of them.

Other Thoughts: I'm probably going to be getting another one of these bad boys for SLI and 120FPS.

LG IPS224V-PN Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great picture quality
-Very little backlight bleeding and IPS glow
-No ghosting
-Decent (not great) mount
-Has DVI, D-SUB, and HDMI inputs
-Only cost $110

Cons: The monitor would not recognize the computer I was putting it on. I was using the monitor with a brand new (I had just put the new parts for it together) computer and the screen said no input detected. I ended up having to use another monitor to install this monitor's software onto the new computer so that it would work.

Also, the monitor only comes with a D-sub cable, so you'll have to buy a DVI or HDMI cable if you want the benefits of a digital signal over an analog signal.

Other Thoughts: Was a great deal for $110 for Black Friday.
