The insulation is sticky. It even left sticky marks on the inside of the manufacturer packaging.

It probably works, but I don't want to handle a sticky mess that is potentially toxic.

The trigger grips did not last long and would not stick anymore after a few weeks. The controller grips are nice but did not fit tightly enough and I found it too slippery and irritating, your mileage might vary if you are a DIY person and have better glue or something to fix these problems.

The thumbstick grips are fine though and I still use it so it could be worth it for that alone.

Love this little ergonomic mouse, but after the scroller broke, and reading up a few reviews afterwards, this is a common issue apparently and microsoft have done nothing to improve the design...Still waiting to hear if it will be replaced or???

Probably the greatest controller

Reviewed by on

At the time, the Xbox One controller didn't support Bluetooth. This one that came with a Windows 10 dongle was a fair compromise, but you couldn't use the dongle with the Steam link.

In terms of build quality and ease of use, I'd rate Xbox One controllers as the best.

Life of these USBs

Reviewed by on

Had one of these running for about (24h * 365 days)*2 in a Raspberry PI
Noticed today something is odd and saw that its no longer being picked up by the PI and when its plugged in it only shows up for about 2min then auto disconnects.
Windows just says no, and spits it out.

Will add that at times the flash drive was very hot.

I have a second one that was more or less ordered the same time that is being used on a day-today basis but not plugged in for extended times which is still going strong. Its only being used when needed.

So for day to day usage, these babies are rock stars. For something that might get used for extended periods, rather get something that was designed for it.

Pretty solid

Reviewed by on

The cut out is perfect. The case has so much grip I haven't even dropped my phone since I put it on. It looks brutal. The only down side would be the raised diamond texture on the back of the case which indents your finger quite easily, which obscures your fingerprint, so you can't unlock your phone for a while. Not too much of a problem if you have more than one fingerprint set up, just a schlep.

Reviewed by on

Great keyboard. Very solid, types well, great for gaming. Cherry-MX Blue alternates used and they feel just like the real thing.
Only reason this keyboard doesn't get 5 stars is that it doesn't come with software and when I eventually found software for it on their website, the software nearly bricked the keyboard. So PLEASE DON'T USE THE SOFTWARE!!! The keyboard comes with a fairly wide variety of on-board lighting profiles that will cater to most people's needs. Just accept that there is no macro/key-remapping functionality from a software perspective.
Outside of the software issues, this is an amazing keyboard that beats out any other mechanical keyboard in the value for money department and I would rate right up there with anything twice its price. Would definitely recommend.

Decent mouse, side buttons are excellent, could be tighter fit round thumb, average man hand. The extra top buttons are impossible to press in real time, but useful in any case. After about year right button got dirty had to remove feet to put some lube on switch, worked fine another year, then just stopped working. Couln't recommend but there is little else to choose from at this point, gaming mouse have long evolution ahead.

Received in early December, these controllers have held up well to the abuse of nearly 200 hours of Smash Bros. They're definitely nowhere near the quality of the Pro Controller, but for 1/3rd of the price it's a much more affordable investment. The removable USB-C cable is very helpful when packing the controllers for transport and hopefully will mean I can replace the cable easily if damaged.

Form over Function

Reviewed by on

Recently bought the case, build quality at first glance is good, until you start building with the case.

The metal chassis is soft making it easy to bend in some places, case was bent slightly at the back by the expansion slots making installing a graphics card a chore. The covers for the slots are not ones you can replace once removed so make sure you only break what you need to off.

Glass is thinner than most cases and is also a fingerprint magnet. This could be solved if they did what most manufactures do and put a thin black border on the glass, this could also help aesthetically as it shows the frame of the case which takes away from the cases good looks.

The biggest issue for this case is below, Airflow.

The front three fans are extremely close to the front glass panel (about 3mm) and this chokes off the fans and makes them basically just there for the lovely colours. I fixed this by moving the two topmost fans, behind the metal frame giving more room to the fans as well as making those side vents on the front functional (before they were pretty much blocked off by the fans). Also take note that once you move the fans it is one hell of a mission to get to the tabs to remove the front again.

As for the advertised radiator support, Maybe the Static pressure fans that come with most AIO's might help with sucking in some air but unfortunately i would suggest that you either, completely remove the two- three front fans as they block the side vents as mentioned or remove the front panel completely.

Comparing this to my CM Enforcer case which i replaced, this case performs poorly airflow wise even after moving the fans. On a i5 3470 i am getting +/- 65 on the package with an old Akasa venom cooler (77 before i moved the fans), and 82 on my MSI armor GTX 1060( 94! before i moved the fans). Comparing this to my previous case( dust and all) where i got 53 Celsius and 70 respectively you can see the difference.

Cable management below, which for me is the second biggest issue for this case.

There are no rubber grommets to help neaten up the cable cutouts, which is to be expected at this price point. On the topic of cutouts it seems that some odd decisions were made to try to get a standard ATX motherboard to fit in this "Smallish?" case. The top cutout that is usually used for the CPU 4 pin or 8 pin power cable is rendered useless to all except for the thin fan cable that is pre-routed through there. As the motherboard completely, not partially but completely covers that cutout.

The Cutouts on the side of the motherboard do not line up nicely with my boards 24 pin leading to alittle more cable being brought into the case which is not a big deal. There are cutouts on the bottom power supply shroud( at this price both these features are fantastic) for cable management.

Behind the scenes the cable management is "alright". There are no recesses for you to route your cables easily and the space between the chassis and the side panel is no where near enough. There is a strange bulge on the side panel to try and create more space and this does help somewhat but the space is still limited. There are ample cable tie spots to use so that helps you get creative with your cable management, ( this creativity is a must if you dont want to force the side panel into place).

Now for the features.

The biggest one and the one that made me buy it in the first place are the RGB fans included with the case. With 4 included RGB fans this is a steal but there are some things that you need to know, one these fans use the old way of lighting up the whole fan, with bright spots where the LEDs are. you could maybe try to Jerry-rig a diffuser to the side of the ring to get rid of this without messing up the effect on the fan itself but there are no guaranties.
Two these fans use their own proprietary connectors which connect to their own fan hub (no connecting any other type of fans or other fan hubs such as NZXT's Hue). The hub can still add an additional 3 fans as well as two RGB strips, but this Hub is basic. It will only do solid colours and fade between them. No fancy rainbow effects or the like here.
Since the fans use their own connectors you cannot change the hub for something more advance later down the line and so a complete replacement of the "system" is required.

The Hard drive situation is good actually, there are three SSD ( or small laptop hard drive?) mounting points inside the main chamber for you to get your showboating on. Two 3.5 mounting trays in the power supply shroud and one SSD mounting point behind the motherboard tray for a grand total of six which is not bad for a case this size.

My personal Verdict,

This case is good for the price if you are the form over function type. I would recommend this to the person who has lowish powered components - Ryzen 3 with maybe a GTX 1050 - blower style graphics card is a must as most internal vent coolers like mine will heat up this case in less then Ten minutes ( the actual top of the case gets quite warm).



I've left this till the end as I expect it to be a once off fluke and I don't want this to effect peoples judgement on the case, but i received no Remote for the RGB fans, case filter for the bottom mounted PSU or hard drive trays with the case. This is apparently sorted out at time of writing but i am still waiting on Raru to pick up the case( that's right i have to send it back and get a completely new case?!) so that I can get this sorted.

I noticed that the Linux kernel was logging messages about TPM being hit on my Dell XPS 9570 -- this causes the peak CPU frequency to drop from > 3.8Ghz down to around 3.1GHz. Still fast, but I want all the speed I can get.

To test, under Windows, I loaded my machine fully (all cores maxed) and saw temperatures quickly rise to 90-97 degrees across all cores (using RealTemp). Simultaneously, CPU-Z displays that the working frequency was around 3.1Ghz. I placed my laptop onto this stand and saw cpu temperatures drop byu 15-20 degrees across the board. Within about 30 seconds, cpu frequency ramped back up to 3.8Ghz.

Of course, the ambient temperature plays a very important role -- the above test was done in a cool, air-conditioned office. Still, the investment is wise: I get more done with my machine and the cooler temperatures prolong the life of the hardware, including the battery (heat is a killer for batteries).

LOL, writing this review 2 years later only because I've purchased ANOTHER pair of these headphones! They fit snugly in the ear and are great for someone who is participating in sport activities.

Good keyboard, terrible mouse

Reviewed by on

The keyboard has a sturdy feel and a solid aluminium base. It looks good and performs well for the price range. The mouse that comes with it feels cheap and plasticy, the buttons have very little response and it sometimes doesn't feel like it clicked at all. The 2 stars is simply because the mouse is such a let down compared to the keyboard.
