A4Tech Bloody Ultra Gaming Gear V7MA Wired 8-Button Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs my "open box" was dead 06/21/2014

This review is from: A4Tech Bloody Ultra Gaming Gear V7MA Wired 8-Button Gaming Mouse

Pros: n/a

Cons: I purchased an "open box" at nearly full price and it had a dead laser on arrival. The box was stamped "RESELL", presumably by A4Tech or their service contractor. Clearly it had NOT been tested. I had to ship it back to Newegg at my own expense ($12 for UPS) in order to get a refund.

Other Thoughts: I have so many choices when it comes to peripherals, there is no reason for me to retry a failed brand. Funny, I had no interest in the software functions of this mouse; I just liked the way it looked.

EVGA 03G-P4-3788-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Classified w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Same thing most others have said. Fairly attractive design and it's pretty rigid. Mine are mounted on a horizontal MB, so I can't speak to sag.

Cons: Two of these cards cost more than my first three cars combined. I'm a little bit disappointed with how loud the fans get when they ramp up.

Other Thoughts: Posting mainly because the Newegg specifications tab shows length as 10.5". I suppose I should have verified elsewhere, but I didn't. As a result, I had to remove a radiator shroud so that they fit. That was uncool because I had some spiffy LEDs mounted inside the shroud.

I also don't understand why there are white LEDs on the top edge of the PCB. It's as if the original PCB design meant for the card to utilize a more traditional fan shroud, allowing a backlit EVGA or GeForce logo.

Rocksmith 2014 Edition PC Game
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Could be so much better 06/21/2014

This review is from: Rocksmith 2014 Edition PC Game

Pros: I chose the one with the USB to ¼" jack cable, so it plugs into my guitars. The software supports guitar and bass. If you want to learn to pluck notes on your guitar (or bass) in response to colored chicklets on the screen, then this is the "game" for you.

Cons: I sincerely believe that it would be better to associate notes on the guitar with notes on a real music scale. That would be REALLY useful and extend beyond this program. This just comes across as a Wii game, like DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION. Honestly, I don't like it.

Other Thoughts: Years ago I used a typing tutor which streamed letters (and words) from right to left. At first it started slowly, but as my skill improved, it sped up faster and faster. Today I am a very good touch-typist (full handed, not hunt-and-peck).

Wouldn't it be better for the future of the budding musician if they (we) learned to associate notes on the instrument with actual notes on the musical scales? I think so.
