    I brought the controller over a year ago, and the buttons are indeed loud, but if u have a gaming headset on while playing something the clicks become less obvious.. they’re also really good considering the price of them, and when u consider that microsofts official xbox one controllers are 1: wireless and 2: prone to breaking if u use them through ur pc via the charger wire. No word of a lie, i’ve had two official controller break on me through the charger port so neither of them connect/charge anymore, and thats from general use... so for £20 that controller is actually okay, i wouldnt go further to say they’re exactly the same as an official controller but its just okay if ur using it for online gaming and dont care abt the noise from the buttons that much which arent as loud as if u wear a headset :)

    To be fair, the AmazonBasics Soundbar *with subwoofer* is really good. On sale it cost $59.99 and it actually has pretty good Bass and volume. It's not going to blow away Sonos, but for $59 it's pretty damn good.

    i think for budget keyboard id get the razer synosa chroma
    its RGB and its also not very expensive
    its like 10 or 20 dollars more expensive than the amazon one but you can get it faster by going to your local best buy and picking one up

      Yeah, I feel like almost everyone who owns a 1080p monitor would have it as 24 inches, or else you really get crappy pixel density. Just go into steams user report stats and a little over 60% of steam users are using 1080p monitors.
