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

2 out of 5 eggs Extremely Disappointed 02/01/2015

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

Pros: The style, performance of the keys (when it works), the media buttons, and that's it.

Cons: Software, Software, Software!!! This keyboard would be a five is it wasn't for the software. The Corsair Utility Engine is horrible, it's so bad that I am one more crash away from returning my keyboard. After spending nearly $200 on a lighted gaming keyboard you would think that Corsair would spend more time making sure that the software works perfectly. Also, to all those people that gave this product a five egg, you must be programmers. The software is so un-user friendly, only a computer programmer would spend the time it takes just to make the color patter of your dreams. The software is so bad that I couldn't use my keyboard with Steam! WOW, a gaming keyboard that is designed to game on a PC doesn't working with a gaming program?! Come on Corsair, you can do better than that.
I did buy the Razer Chroma Keyboard first and I loved it and the software. The only reason why I returned it is because the clicking noise was way too loud for me and for some reason I kept hitting the CAPs lock when I wanted to hit the "A" key. If it wasn't for those two things I would be gaming on a Razer and not an over priced keyboard with bad programming.

Other Thoughts: What more can I say? Stay away from this keyboard, it's not worth the money. There are still a lot of bugs and Corsair still has update the software to be more user friendly. The lights still freeze on me. I have uninstalled the software several times only to be right back where I started. The customer support is on line and reading a bunch of forums is not what I call customer service, that's called letting the customers figure it out for themselves post it online and then Corsair will make an update and make it sound like they were the ones that found the problem. I was really hoping that this keyboard would be amazing but the Software and support just killed my experience. I would gladly take my money back if I had a replacement keyboard.
And one more thing, there are no real presets for lighting effects. you have to make them your self's with no instructions, or tutorials. That's how hard the software is. Corsair can learn a lot from Razer's version. The forums have lots of people that I guess had nothing better to do but make Youtube videos of their awesome lighting profiles and share them That's the only way I was able to use the lighting effects. Designing a pattern with the software is like using Photoshop with Key Frames for every little moment and then there are other settings that you just have no idea how to use. Just poor, poor, design on Corsair. Not to mention that new logo is just horrible. It does nothing to the keyboard, I just hate the new logo. I don't think anyone likes it. Sorry, I really did want to write a good review but this keyboard functions mainly on the software and the software is garbage and needs to redesigned from the ground up.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet (32GB, 4G LTE) – Unlocked

1 out of 5 eggs All Hype 12/10/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet (32GB, 4G LTE) – Unlocked

Pros: The speakers, display colors, and the look of the casing.

Cons: The screen and housing feels like cheap plastic. The touch screen was so thin that every where I tapped on the screen the middle bubble as if it was touching a component from the inside. I contact NVIDIA online customer service and they said that was normal. But for me it happened all the time and any where I tapped on the screen. That' normal, and if that is that's just cheap/poor design.

The battery life is no good. you don't get a much out of the battery before you have to plug it in.
The 5ghz wifi is very particular, I couldn't get it to work with my router and I changed all the channels but nothing seemed to work. All my other wireless devices worked fine on 5Ghz but the shield didn't.
Gaming was nice when I was streaming but when I tried to play on the grid it sucked. Because the tablet didn't to use my wireless N 5ghz the gaming was stuttering all over the place.
This tablet as it stands is not worth $400.

Other Thoughts: With so many tablets on the market with a sturdier design this one felt the cheapest. It may be the most powerful tablet on the market but that means nothing if I always have to have it plugged in and the screen bubbles when you touch it.
Side note: I bought this as a bundle to get away from my mini-ipad and the sad part is that it ran faster and performed simple task better and the wireless controller that came with the bundle doesn't have vibration with it.
I'm a big NVIDIA FAN ( I have two G-Force 680's in my PC) but this tablet was a big let down.
Listen to the comments from the other customers because they are right.

A4Tech Bloody Ultra Gaming Gear R8A / R-Series Wireless Gaming Mouse

1 out of 5 eggs A confusing mouse. 02/14/2014

This review is from: A4Tech Bloody Ultra Gaming Gear R8A / R-Series Wireless Gaming Mouse

Pros: Full of features, nice look, and style. The lights look cool. Plenty of programming features if you are tech savvy. Accurate laser and the sniper features are pretty cool.

Cons: This mouse has a nice price and lots of features but it doesn't outweigh the fact that the battery life is only 24 hours or less and you can't understand the instructions. The instructions in the software don't make sense and the apply button when you change the features doesn't seem to do what you think it does. It's very confusing. Once you get the mouse to work, you almost have to write your own instructions. I spent a lot of time on youtube figuring out how the mouse works.
After that, the texture of the mouse is a slick rubber. After ten minutes of FPS gaming my hand started to feel soft like I was petting a soft kitten. So my grip was not there. The mouse is extremely light, which is not helpful for me in FPS gaming. I like a little weight in my mouse.
Next, the battery sucks. After one day of gaming the batter is already drained. Then when I tried to plug the mouse into the wireless cable the mouse doesn't work but if I plug the mouse directly into the PC with the wireless dongle plugged in, it works and charges. The only problem with that is the charging cable is about 5 inches long.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this mouse at all. I think it really needs some heavy R&D (research and development). If you deal with programming and macro you wont mind the software instructions because you will do your own thing. But for the rest of us this mouse just not worth the $40. I would rather stick with my basic Logitech M705 mouse.
