Corsair STRAFE RGB Review

I have been using the Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard for more than a year now.  I have tried many gaming keyboards before, and personally I think this one is the best.  The Corsair STRAFE uses CHERRY MX switches.  CHERRY MX switches feel amazing to press down on.  Most people have chunky, membrane keyboard switches that feel cheap to press down on.  I chose the CHERRY MX Silent Switches for my STRAFE.  The Silent Switches are not really too silent or too clicky, they have their own unique sound.  It is a more quiet version of your standard mechanical keyboard click.  All CHERRY MX Switches are amazing, but when it comes to the different versions, it is up to your preference of sound.  The RGB part of the keyboard is wonderful.  The plate underneath the keys is completely white, so the colors gracefully reflect of it.  You can go from preset rainbow displays to community-made, game-based displays.  I have had a setting where my keyboard lit up every time sound on my computer played.  I have also had one where there was a unique lighting setting for each Overwatch character.  The STRAFE Keyboard also has a USB pass-through which is neat to have since the keyboard takes up two USB ports.  The arm rest that the STRAFE comes with may be plastic, but it is very comfortable.  It has saved my wrist so many times after countless hours of gaming and typing.  Overall, I would rate this keyboard a 9/10 due to its amazing keys and spectacular look.

***Unfortunately, Amazon no longer sells the silent but the Red and Brown switches are what I recommend the most***

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Review

I have been using the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate keyboard for about 7 months. It is the first mechanical keyboard that I have tried, and I have loved it so far. The mechanical feeling and the clicky response from the keys is something that I prefer way more than a membrane keyboard. This keyboard has improved my typing speed and made my gaming experience a lot better. Even with sound cancelling headphones, the click and the audio feedback help me to know when I have hit a key. I will say that after you have become very comfortable with this keyboard, typing on a membrane keyboard will probably be a bit more difficult. At first, the multimedia keys were a little bit tricky for me to use because you also had to hold the function key, but it quickly became muscle memory. Being able to adjust audio, disable the windows key while gaming, and record macros on the fly is a big advantage to using this keyboard. Although I do not have the chroma version, letting you choose from 16.8 million different colors, the green back lighting is very helpful when using the keyboard at night. With a lifespan of up to 80 million key strokes, I think that I will continue to use this keyboard for a very long time. Overall, I would give this keyboard an 8/10, and I recommend it if the noise is not an issue or if it is something that you prefer.

Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones Review

I have had my Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones for about five months now.  They are definitely my favorite headphones of all time.  They are way more comfortable than Beats headphones.  I purchased the Beats Solo 2 a while back, and I was very dissatisfied with them.  Beats headphones may look nice, but they are actually pretty low quality compared to other headphones on the market.  Beats headphones are bass-heavy and just uncomfortable.  Your ears will feel weird after wearing them for more than an hour.  The Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones are very comfortable, as they are over-ear rather than on-ear like the Beats.  The Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones also support a more neutral and balanced sound signature.  The Beats have a more bass-heavy sound signature like I mentioned earlier.  It really comes down to preference, but a lot people agree bass-heavy headphones tend to have poor sound quality.  The Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones have a closed back variation called the HD 598 Cs.  Closed back headphones offer better sound isolation which is good if you are in a noisy environment.  Open back headphones offer better sound quality and sound stage, but they will leak more sound out of your headphones.  I recommend the default version if you stay home more, but if you are on the move often, then I recommend you to get the closed back version.  As always, the links to the products are below, and I hope you look into buying these headphones as they have enhanced my music listening experience tremendously.

DJI Mavic Pro Review

The DJI Mavic Pro was released a couple months ago.  I was able to get my hands on this bad boy last week when I visited my friend.  We had a great time flying this drone.  Let me just say this now, this drone was tiny.  Very, very tiny for a drone.  You can easily hold this drone in one hand.  I don’t know how DJI did it, but this drone is packed with a 4K Camera and a 27 minute flight time.  Those specifications are really good in the drone world.  4K Resolution is crispy and clean to look at, and a near 30 minute flight time allows you to record all that need in one session.  My friend and I were able to fly the drone 3 miles away from us.  This drone is really sweet and I recommend you to buy it.  You can get your Mavic Pro here.
