    retro NES controller

    Laptop and ultrabook both have backlit Dell keyboards. Pretty nice, for a laptop keyboard anyway.

    It's better than the cheap chinese crap I've been using up until now. my older mechanical keyboard is dead, and I loved that. I was using this keyboard, and believe you me, I'm glad to be rid of it. it almost felt like using a typewriter.

    The BlackWidow fails because it lacks Cherry MX switches. When I upgrade to mechanical, I will be upgrading to the Corsair K70. I currently have the Razer DeathStalker, and, as a chiclet keyboard, it works well. It has a decent feedback on key presses. As for my mouse, it's cheap Chinese crap (JK). It's a Redragon Perdition. It's a MMO-style mouse (12 thumb buttons). It has got a good sensor and nice solid buttons and it fits my hand well.



    Just don't buy Wal-Mart's Blackweb Centaur. "19-key anti-ghosting" WHY? Yeah, I regularly press two keys with all of my fingers. And for $40, you'll probably have to replace it something like every 6 months.

    lol. a friend of mine has the Razer Naga, another one of these 12-button doohickies. I preffer fewer buttons on the mouse myself as that's what the keyboard is for... which reminds me

    Razer DeathAdder Chroma found it's way to me this morning. feels good, but seems to be picky on what surface it likes. at the moment I'm using one of the cardboard slips that came with the keyboard, only due to lack of not being able to find my mousemat. understandably I've lost it as I've been using a trackerball mouse for god knows how long. cheap-ass kensington two button wheel thing.... already ghosting button presses (eg Double clicking on something I wanna single click on).. but what do you expect for a sub £15 thing from PCWorld.

    As for the walmart thing... We don't have those here in t' UK, so I think I'm safe from it. 19 key anti-ghosting? who dafuq has 20 fingers to require that much anti-ghosting? Does it work? (Just curious, I don't plan on replacing this beautiful keyboard any time soon!)

    19 key antighosting does not mean 19 simultaneous keypresses but actually refers to the combination of keys being pressed. Some keyboards will not recognise A and S being held at the same time for example (or my old laptop wouldnt allow W, E and D to be pressed, I played minecraft with E mapped to jump so that was annoying).

    Antighosting alleviates this. 19 key antighost, simply means there are 19 keys that will not contribute to ghosting.




    As an FYI. Asda. Thats walmarts UK arm. Probably why its so shit.

    K65 RGB no numpad, nice keyboard but i am disappointed with the led lights. It can do the advertised 16.8m colours but with any kind effect it flickers so damn much its annoying. Without the 16.8m mode effects looks choppy and not so colourful as it should be.
    Mionix naos 7000 mouse, its comfy and good but scroll wheel is broken or something, have to press quite hard to get that wheel button to work.
    Headset is Logitech g35, no complaints yet.

    A Unicomp Ultra Classic Model M keyboard (late 2014 production), a Logitech M705 mouse, a Steel Series mouse pad, a wireless Xbox 360 controller and receiver, a M-Audio M-Track USB audio interface with a CAD GXL2200 microphone and a Rode PSA1 boom arm, a pair of AKG K240 headphones, a Logitech C920 webcam, and some cheap Amazon Basics speakers. I also use a Samsung SyncMaster S20B350 monitor, and a 4:3 MAG Innovision monitor (late 2005 production). I'm trying to save up some money towards a G25 or G27 in the near future. I might end up selling some of my recording equipment, as I only really need a decent headset for Skype calls.

    I want a k65 design wise but they only offer it in red switches. I find the feel of these worse than a silicon membrane. I lack the cash to buy one just to desolder the reds and solder on browns instead.

    Corsair. K65 available in blue and brown please.

    I have a rubber dome keyboard that has been super reliable, it is around 18 years old with continuous use including having water and lentils spilled on it (on different occassions). My mouse is a G500, it no longer works in direct sunlight but that isnt too big an issue :p My mouse mat is a steel series qck since i had worn through my desks veneer. My wheel is a G25, i also use a 360 controller and a wacom tablet (for writing usually to reduce joint pain from using the same input method). My speakers are logitech z5500's and i also use Yammaha EPH-100 headphones. My microphone is self made using the Primo EM172 capsule housed in a copper pipe held to gether with packaging foam using a neutrik 3.5mm connector.

    Basically everything else is in my sig.

    For A2 computing i had to record videos of me testing the software i wrote. My setup was pretty cobbled together, i was using the copper mic. I ended up with over 1.5 hours of me talking through my program. It was pretty awful to do.

    Hmm, the image was not that way up on my computer or when i took it, i certainly wasnt in Aus at the time.

    Speakers: Logitech things, sub is meant to be dead but it has come back from the dead unless I play Don't by Ed Sheeran!
    PC: A custom PC that I have posted before
    Mic: A crappy mic that is better than the one I was using before it
    Controller: A Afterglow 360 one that glows green that I need to clean the joysticks...
    Wheel: A Logitech MOMO Racing wheel which I need a power supply for!

    I got the K70 yesterday, it looks really good and right now im using reactive typing and I looks really good. I wish it came in cherry blue switches because it sounds weird not having that ''click''.
