Sony PlayStation 4 The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V Bundle
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Nice Bundle for a Nice Price 01/05/2015

This review is from: Sony PlayStation 4 The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V Bundle

Pros: - Graphics are excellent
- Nice bundle with the 2 games
- Controller is MUCH better than past controllers
- Cool design of the unit
- LOVE that I can swap out the hard drive if necessary without voiding the warranty

Cons: - Disc eject button was a PITA to find
- PSN has been a joke

Other Thoughts: I'm not a PlayStation or Xbox fan boy; I buy gaming systems agnostically. That said, I like the PS4 better than the Xbox One (I am lucky enough to have both systems). Being able to swap out the hard drive is a HUGE plus in the PS4's favor. I also think the graphics look a little better and, more esoterically, I like the design of the PS4 better than the Xbox One.

However, the Xbox One still has a better controller than the PS4 and Xbox Live is significantly better than PSN. Sony really spit the bit on that one. Hopefully they can rectify the issues they've been having, but right now there is no comparison between the online modules.

If you are patient enough to let Sony work out the issues with PSN, I think the PS4 is a good buy, particularly if you can score a bundle like this one.

2200mAh 010-11599-00 Battery Garmin VIRB, VIRB Elite, Virb Elite Action HD Camera 1.4
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good price, shipped quickly.

Cons: Not sure if this battery actually works with the Garmin Virb. I inserted the battery and it powers on the unit, but when it's charging it never shows a charge meter like it does when the Garmin battery is installed.

I'm not sure if this is a by-product of it being a third-party battery or it simply won't charge.

MSI Z97-Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Nice Motherboard, Confusing BIOS 11/02/2014

This review is from: MSI Z97-Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: - Well designed board
- Packed with all the latest interface slots
- Good features for the price
- Cool aesthetics
- BIOS has lots of options

Cons: - BIOS is confusing
- Memory slots are pretty close to the CPU, which makes oversized CPU coolers problematic
- Overclock Genie really doesn't work all that well when overclocking the CPU
- Manual is better than previous MSI manuals, but it's still not all that reliable as a source for beginners

Other Thoughts: I really like MSI motherboards. This is my third one. I only purchased it because it was time to move forward technologically from my last board, not because anything was wrong with the prior one.

The board is pretty well designed, has lots of slots for cards, memory, etc. and looks really cool. The one thing that I thought was great at first, but turned out to be less than what I first thought was the BIOS. Very confusing and a lot of options seem to be redundant and cancel each other out. The boot sequence piece being a prime example.

However, there are plenty of overclocking options for both CPU and memory, and for the price I really can't complain too much about the board.
