    It had thermal "gum" not paste lol. See it on all too many laptops, and it freaks me out by how dense the stuff is, and how dried up it gets.

    Yeah, they always cheap out on things. Still fun to open clean and repaste. Hard part is popping off keyboard sometimes.:laugh:

    I need to get a new camera. My phone doesn't do justice to pictures. :(

    My aging Logitech keyboard with a sticky space bar... but soon to come will be my brand new mechanical switch keyboard.

    So the old... and yes, I know it's a little dirty. The keys are also smoothing out from their original rough texture from how much I've used the keyboard. :p
    [​IMG]
    On a non-tech note, I highly recommend the snowman mug. :p

    ...and the new is soon to come (once it's delivered later today). :D

    Are HDD prices still insanely high over there? I can get a 2TB for £20 extra over here.

    And which did you order?

    Chirping? I have two of their 2TB, and havent noticed a chirping sound?
    After hours of idle power you hear it spin up once in a blue moon though.

    Mine did it, a lot. It was annoying. Considerably.
    So I switched it with my old 7200.12 that was going to an external box. Now, the new one is in the external box, which makes sense, because this way it is rarely accessed, so way less chirping / L/U cycles.
    Even though it's the very same model, the firmware on micorpage7's is different. Possibly that will mean improvements.
    Still, it's pretty moronic of Seagate to include head parking in a regular desktop HDD. (I wanted a regular HDD, not an advanced power management one. If I wanted one of those, I would have bough a green HDD, DUH!)
    Especially when it's only included in the series if the HDD is part of the 1TB p/platter drives.

    I guess if you want to look real hard there is a thread that says what I bought, but I'll let the suspense build until I get it. :)

    At full intensity the backlighting is pretty bright. The modes are nifty but the switches are amazing. Very nice keyboard and it feels very sturdy. It was a damn good buy if you ask me. :toast:

    What's with the dual-USB plug? Does it draw too much power from a single port?

    The manual on the Rosewill support page says it's for the illumination startup. Actually, it says "star-up," but I'm assuming it's a typo.

    It has a dual USB2.0 hub on the back of the keyboard for adding stuffs to it.

    This. I would imagine that illumination + the hub being fully populated could have some relatively hefty power requirement.
    That's how I felt when I first looked at it, but it's really not that bad.
