Das Ultimate Model S Silent Review

Keyboard Info:

Switch: Cherry MX Brown

Actuation Pressure: 45g

Connection: PS/2 or USB 2.0+

Color: Black

Lifespan: Approx. 50 million keystrokes

Features: Blank Key Caps, 2 port USB 2.0 hub, and n-key rollover

 The Das Ultimate Model S with Cherry MX brown switches is great for anyone who wants some of the best performance they can get from a keyboard. The brown switches give a pretty quiet sound while retaining the tactility from other mechanical key switches. With 45 grams of actuation force needed to depress a key, this keyboard is great for touch typists who want to improve their WPM. Along with improved WPM, it is great for gaming compared to a standard membrane keyboard; which has no tactile feeling and are generally much less durable than the Das or any mechanical keyboard on the market. Another interesting feature that the Das Ultimate offers is blank key caps which is great for mapping your keyboard in a way that fits your preference in games. It is also useful to improve your typing abilities because it forces you to memorize every key position. Since you can connect this keyboard to your computer using PS/2, it means you can have full n-key rollover. In other words, you can press as many keys as you want at one time and they will all register. This feature is great for both typing and gaming. Lastly, this keyboard has a lifespan of 50 million keystrokes which is another reason why it will last much longer than a standard membrane keyboard. This extended lifespan would work towards your benefit which means you will have to replace keyboards much less often.

 In conclusion, this is the perfect keyboard if the buyer isn't apprehensive about blank keycaps, otherwise the standard version is recommended. The Das Ultimate with brown switches is virtually flawless and therefore gets a ten out of ten.

Kingdom Hearts OST

The Kingdom Hearts OST is the soundtrack for the first Kingdom Hearts game. This soundtrack includes songs from the original game and it also contains some remixes of songs. If you are - at all - a fan Kingdom Hearts, then I definitely recommend checking out this soundtrack. I especially recommend this if you are a fan of instrumental music. The variety of songs on this soundtrack is what makes it great. The songs vary from slow and sad to fast paced and exciting. Another interesting thing about the soundtrack is that it has many remade classic Disney songs on it. Of course, it also includes Utada Hikaru's "Hikari" (English version is known as "Simple and Clean"), which is the theme song of the first game and it is - to this day - one of my favorite songs. If you have ever played the English version of the game, then the theme you heard was "Simple and Clean," which is NOT in this OST. Personally, the Japanese version of this song sounds better. I go so far as to recommend this to anyone, even if they've never played the game, because the songs are still amazing. Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10, this soundtrack gets a 9. Keep in mind, though, that this rating may be slightly biased due to nostalgia I have from playing the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Review


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is a 3D remake of the classic action-adventure game for the Nintendo 64. Ocarina of Time 3D brings back everything from the original Ocarina of Time and Master Quest with a new 3D look. Along with adding new 3D features to the game, the developers improved the graphics even when the player is not playing in 3D, which creates a much more interesting playing experience. The gameplay feels very similar to that of the Nintendo 64 game. However, the 3D does make the game feel much more immersive and realistic than it did on the Nintendo 64. The great thing about this game is that the developers didn't change anything in the storyline, which means that the player gets the same experience he would've had on the Nintendo 64. However, the player gets to experience it in a portable 3D world instead.
Overall, I highly recommend getting this game if the player has a 3DS, because it is definitely one of the best games currently out on the 3DS. Also, it is still one of the best games ever created. Ocarina of Time for the 3DS gets a well deserved 10 out of 10.
