Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Red Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Blue Back-lit (GK-OSMIUM)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Mechanical Cherry MX Red keys - This was my first mechanical gaming keyboard and now I can never go back. I absolutely love these keys.
Backlit keys- Has blue backlit keys that have an easy to reach brightness adjustment.
Solid construction - This thing is heavy and feel like its built like a tank. The cables are all jacketed and are a nice length.
USB 3 port built into the keyboard - This is a nice addition and I use it to plug in my portable external hard drive when I need to use it.
USb 2.0 port built in- also has a usb 2.0 port which I havnt really used but its there if needed.
Headphone jack built it- Has a headphone jack built into the right side which is a nice feature but I have never needed to use it. (The placement is questionable as it is kind of in the way of the mouse movement for a right handed person)
Macro software- Comes with macro software to set your mmacro keys and has a few profiles which you can change with the big switch above the number pad and each profile has a color that lights up on the switch.
Built in volume wheel.

Cons: The Macro keys are at the very top of the keyboard and really not easy to use at all.. I have never used the macro keys as I can't hit them without taking my hand off the keyboard.. Also since i have a slide out keyboard tray the macro keys are under the table so I cant hit them even if I wanted to. The macro keys are not positioned well for fast paced gaming but work well if you are not in a hurry to reach them.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews recently I have never had a problem with this keyboard and I honestly love it. Other then the position of the macro keys I have no complaints about it.
its the best keyboard I've owned and have not had the issues that the other reviewers have.

Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K3000 HDS723020BLA642 (0f12115) 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very fast - Just recently bought a WD black and this drive blows the WD black away! (I record with Dxtory a lot for my YouTube channel and with Dxtory benchmark this drive is about 125 were the Wd Black is only about 80.)
Reliable- I bought this drive in 2012 not one problem with it.

Cons: No longer for sale on Newegg :( , Shame this drive isn't available anymore I would have bought another one of these over the WD black I bought.

Other Thoughts: I didn't expect this drive to be as fast as it is. Its a great HDD so far and If it was still available I would get another.

4 out of 5 eggs Good reliable HDD but not going to win any races. 12/12/2013

This review is from: Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great price on sale, Reliable, "Good" performance, Trusted name. Nice reliable drive and a good price.

Cons: Slower then my older Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K3000 HDS723020BLA642 drive.

Other Thoughts: I didn't research HDD speeds before buying this It was an impulse buy because of it being on sale and I have never had bad luck with WD drives.

The drive is a nice reliable drive at a good price but do not expect it to be the fastest HDD out there. Its slower then my Hitachi 2Tb drive and after looking up benchmarks it appears its slower then a barracuda also.

I do not regret my purchase tho and I am happy with the drive , as long as it lasts for a long time I will continue to be happy with my purchase. I think the main point of this drive over the faster drives if you look at reviews is that this drive seems to be more reliable.
