This review is from: Thrustmaster GPX LightBack Black Edition - Xbox 360
Pros: - I can finally finish dark souls on PC
- Racing games on PC! cheaper than a wheel
- Triggers have a lot of weight/resistance to them. (thick spring?)
- LED lights have an off switch in the back, if you need it.
- Has some weight to it
- Cord is convertable between USB and Xbox port. ( I only own PC)
Cons: -Needed to follow youtube video to install - it did not sense my device drivers. youtube url: " watch?v=5pVkC6aQojM " if you also need help. Basically like the video says if it doesn't find driver automatically on some PCs, you need to go into device manager and tell it where it is. It's a common problem for PC ported controllers so not taking a star away. Just search xbox controller for PC otherwise.
-Smaller than xbox controller, thought it would be same size. I have monster hands from lifting, Have to curve thumbs to use sticks properly in neutral position or point down
Other Thoughts: Size should maybe be made more apparent on pictures, either way, love the hell out of it so far. Ive been waiting to finish dark souls series on PC for a long time as keyboard its just such a hassle. Ive also missed playing sports games on PC without a controller since I havnt owned a console in years. So far, highly recommendedREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches
Pros: *Heavy- I love the weight of this thing, will never slide no matter how hard you type or game with it.
*Sound- Personally I love it, but it could be a con for some.
*Portable- Although its heavy, its super small profile. Easily fits in a backpack, carrying case, or etc. Literally about 50% of the size of the Microsoft Sydewinder.
*Brightness- My entire rig is lit up, my mouse, etc, but this keyboard is by far the brightest. It's 3rd setting for brightness might as well be a lamp in a dark room. Seriously the brightest piece of gaming equipment I have EVER seen. (Fear not, its easily adjusted with Function + F11/F12)
*Good layout - Easily adapted from last keyboards with no problem. I would say my typing speed also improved a good 10-15 wpm.
*Price - One of the cheapest mechanical boards out there, and you really don't see why. The quality is outstanding. The Blue Switches are amazing.
Cons: *Sound - Its loud, people hear it over my stream. (Doesn't bother me)
*So Bright that the light bleeds around keys (Doesn't bother me)
*The northern-back keystands could be longer, as I like a more slanted keyboard when I'm not gaming. No big deal though.
Other Thoughts: Worth every penny of $80.00. You are not missing out on anything by getting this instead of a comparable $120.00 blue-switch mechanical, except the price and probably a bit of size. Up to you if you want to pay more for a bigger keyboard though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 18 months ago I bought a Visehera 8350 AMD 4.0 Ghz cpu and an AsRock Extreme 9 Mobo for this computer. My goal was to build a computer to handle streaming high level (D1+) League of Legends/SC2. This was (I believe) the best AMD cpu on the market at that time. I could not stream past 720p with the highest settings on either game, as both games are more cpu intensive then graphics wise. Even overclocked to 4.8ghz, the max I could go without raising heat through my water cooler, I could not sustain 1080p with dropping fps to 30 in high processing areas (Teamfights in league, or 200 supply army clashes in sc2).
Since I swapped the Mobo and Cpu from Asrock Extreme 9 and AMD Visehera 4.0ghz piledriver (8x), that isn't even close to an issue. It seriously blows AMD's old flagship out of the water. It isn't even comparable.
I do not even have this overclocked yet, as I just have no need. 1080p SC2/League of Legends with 540p webcam, music, streaming video on second monitor, etc, I can still run both games on high settings with 200-300 fps if I turn v-sync off.
The one time I did overclock, I turned it to 4.3 just to see how it would perform. I received 400 fps in both games, and no discernible temperature increase. Just to test it, I downloaded BF 3 on ultra and streamed, consistent 120+ FPS even streaming. (Although, even on the old setup, BF3 wasn't really a problem, as this game is more GPU intensive then CPU like league or SC2.)
I just have no need to overclock right now as I am not doing 3d modeling or anything that cpu intensive. I'm just using it for gaming purposes atm.
Cons: It is pricey. For just a good mobo combo with this processor + an MSI board (Which i highly suggest, this MSI board is amazing), you can buy a budget pre-built computer. ($500-$600 ish)
Other Thoughts: Worth every penny
Probably will not buy another AMD cpu in my lifetime.
