Logitech G410 is a bit of a miss.

Good: The keyboard is amazingly programmable and the lighting is top notch. LGS is great as always (in recent years at least). The build quality feels good although not as high-end as the price suggests. TKL is good if you need it. ARX is really cool although I haven't used it on the g410 yet.

Noteworthy: The keys are quiet on their way down but actually a little louder on the way up than some Cherry MX Browns. They aren't as pleasurable to type on as browns which aren't exactly the pinnacle of key switches for typing to start with. The look is quite "gamery" which may not suit everyone's taste.

Bad: Typing feels inferior to most mechanical keyboards I've tried. It seems like Romer G switches aren't bad depending on your needs (quiet but somewhat stiff) but the key design falls short. My biggest gripe is the spacebar which rattles and feels a bit cheesy. The spacebar is noisy, negating the quietness of the keyboard.

Overall: The G410 is not worth the cost unless you really want ARX on a TKL board. Romer Gs feel unique, but I think Cherry Browns and Razer Orange have the edge in feel with comparable noise.

Looks like an improvement in usability at least. The G910 has strangely designed keys that differ in size from each other... and that huge non-removable palm rest on the left side only. This looks a little better for every day. Don't mind dropping the numpad... Can always get a separate one for when it's needed.

$200 Beats headphones actually cost just $18 to make

"In his teardown, Louie also discovered a number of metal pieces that were used solely to increase the total weight of the headphones, making them feel more substantial. 30 percent of the Beats Solo HD's weight comes from four metal parts, which push the total weight of the headphones over 100 grams."

When it comes to frozen pizza, @ScreamnSicilian is surprisingly good. I must admit though, the giant #moustache is less than appetizing.

I've owned many wireless mice (eg. G7, MX1000, MX700, Mamba) but my +Logitech  #G602 is the first I haven't cursed at

Just transferred some existing hardware to a new 8-bay mini-ITX case (Silverstone DS380B). Filled it up with 6 x 6TB Western Digital REDs for 36TB of mechanical storage. 

I'm pleased with the case. It's pretty well made, even though not necessarily high-end. Used an old SFX PSU with a low-voltage Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM. 

Not proud of the cable management (i.e. there is none!), but I'll go back and clean it up when I get more time. Setting up #ZFS ZRAID2 right now (think: RAID 6) for a total of 24TB-ish space!
