Very content after being skeptical
I had never herd of the brand Eluktronics before and was planning on building a nice desktop PC... But the souring prices of GPUs added way to much price to what I was saving up for. I had a sony Vaio svf15 BYO that I got back in 2013 for about $1300 and its useful life to play any newer games had come to an end, so I went searching for an alternative to a desktop and stumbled upon this MECH-15 byo on newegg. I liked the price and what it included and decided I would like less ram at the moment to upgrade in the future if I actually needed more so I came and bough it directly from eluktronics. Let me tell you, I am super happy with this system. I have had 0 issues with it for the month or so I have had it. The M.2 boot drive is amazing! I only dreamed about a computer booting up this fast. I would say it is on par with a MacBook Air (i fix those things for a living). The video card is a GTX1070 in my byo and I finally have more than 12fps on most games I was hoping to play! I do find it odd, and my friends do blame it on the new computer - but I am doing better in the games and we are winning more now that I am not a drag! Did I mention I am super happy with this compy? I noticed the 1-9 thing also, and yeah, it can be a bit annoying if you don't have the keyboard memorized - but the 10 key is lit up. IMHO 10 key is the way to go if you have to do more than 2 numbers. To the kb. It is mechanical feeling. Ill be honest, its my first mechanical KB, so I'm not sure how it compares to others, I personally love it though so far. As for kb and trackpad... I have not found the amount of keys you can hold down at once... But I can tell you its more than 35 N-key rollover?!? SUPER AWESOME! Also, there is no trackpad blanking while typing. Maybe it is an option. I personally love that, so I can move the mouse while holding a key if need be. Screen - its beautiful. No dead pixels, no problems at all with it. Fans - when on smart mode, i don't notice them, when they are on full, i love the sound. It lets me know that yes in fact, i am in turbo fan mode and keeping cool. I cant think of anything else at the moment. I am really enjoying this computer!
