The schwag was cool; the keyboard not so much

Overclockers Club offers an alternative look at the extreme gaming keyboard market which most seem to have accepted as a reasonable product now.  There are many who will pay a high price for a mechanical keyboard with good switches as they do make a difference for frequent typers though arguably not as much for gamers.  Then there are the $50 gaming keyboard with common gel switches but a fancy exterior, eye catching colours and backlighting which generally come with bottle openers and fridge magnets.  The Sentey Phoenix Extreme Gamer is one such keyboard and if you consider it reasonable to spend $50 on a pretty keyboard you probably don't want to read this review.  Those who agree with the author and would rather kill 5 generic keyboards over time will probably crack at least one smile while they read.

"The keyboard ultimately is a joke to my hands and for the $50 asking price, I'd rather burn through five generic builder series keyboards instead. This keyboard has no home on my desk and shouldn't on yours either. I'm happy to be done with the review, simply for the sake of never using it again. Fortunately, the carry bag will prevent me from picking up shattered keys in my driveway later; good thinking Sentey."

For a mere $75 the new Sentey Halcon Black case is a great choice for those who don't want much from a case other than a windy place to store components.  It comes with a half dozen 120mm fans, which is impressive for a case on the small end of the mid-tower range.  It is worth bearing in mind that as it is a midsized case, so oversized video cards are not going to fit inside without sacrificing some space for drives.  There is a nice mix of 3.5" and 2.5" bays as well as external USB 3.0 ports which help round out a nice list of features for a case well under $100.  Check out the full review at Legit Reviews or if you are in the mood for a case with a few more features and more space for components you should check out Lee's latest review.

"Sentey happens to be one of the newer companies out there when it comes to manufacturing components. Sentey might be still an up and comer, but they currently make cases, power supplies, video cards, and case fans. One of their latest gaming case offerings is the Extreme Division GS-6050 II Halcon Black and that just happens to be what we are reviewing today. This case is an updated version of the original GS-6050 Halcon, so expect to see the addition of SuperSpeed USB 3.0, improved cooling and a new side panel..."
