Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP

2 out of 5 eggs Wait for Polaris 04/09/2016

This review is from: Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP

Pros: It allowed me to use my 29" UW monitor and utilize ultra settings

Cons: Freezing, graphics glitches,

Other Thoughts: As much as I don't want to say it, I'm really not sure if I would recommend. I love AMD and I support Sapphire. However, I was very disappointed. After a short while, I started running into issues with PC lockups and graphics glitches, and this is not while I was gaming, just browsing. After researching, it apparently is an issue with the GPU running at low clock speeds. I suppose it's meant to run full throttle all the time and can't handle running slow? This made me decide to not deal with the hassle of having the vicious RMA cycle of running into the same issue over .. and over again. Now, I have a 29" monitor, that I dropped a nice bit of change for, with Freesync that is just sitting and collecting dust until Polaris drops or I decide to get something else AMD. I'll perhaps just pay more attention and research more thoroughly in the future.

MSI MSI Gaming Z170A GAMING PRO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've been utilizing the MSI motherboards since I can remember. I've never had any issues and this one does not disappoint. From the utilization of the different capabilities to the lighting. I'm for the most part satisfied. However, there are a few minor things that's to be desired.

Cons: Well these are really minor things but:
- The LED for the mystic lights. The coloration or.. discoloration I should say, could be a little better. Blue looks purple, orange looks pink, etc..
- My case badge. I didn't receive a case badge. I suppose if I wanted that I should've spent a little more.
- OS selection. Not sure why this would be there but, have to select the option to boot windows 7 or 10.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would recommend this to anyone. The ease of getting everything set up, from the OS installation to the utilities. Very satisfied and will continue to go the MSI route.

Logitech G500 Black Chrome 10 Buttons Dual-mode Scroll Wheel USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's good until it starts being erratic and causing issues with gaming.

Cons: I've now gone through two of these since 2011. Bought the first one and the left mouse button started malfunctioning. Logitech was pretty good with replace it which made me happy.
Now, on my second one, I'm having tracking issues. I'm not certain if it's a laser issues or what. I went through numerous troubleshooting processes with no luck. While being told that there's nothing that can be done to remedy the issue Logitech did attempt to pitch a sale to me to buy a different mouse.

Other Thoughts: It seems that the life of these are around two years. I suppose that could be good or bad. I'm pretty meticulous with my components. I run with a Logitech keyboard, headset, and mouse. 2 of which are having issues. I'm most likely going to move away from the Logitech line unfortunately.
