SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs High quality controller for Mac and iPad 06/21/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller

Pros: - Paired quickly and easily via Bluetooth to my iPad Mini 2 and Mac Mini 2012.
- Super high quality build (buttons, analog sticks, triggers).
- Weight feels good in my hands, doesn't feel light or cheap.
- On par, quality-wise, with the XBOX One and PS4 controllers, if not better overall.
- I really like the soft action on the shoulder trigger buttons.
- Battery lasts a long time.
- Response in games on my iPad and Mac was perfect. No input lag at all!

Cons: - Doesn't include a charging cable. This is a real mystery - why wouldn't such a beautiful, high-quality game controller come with the lightning cable necessary for charging and use? It is silly to assume that buyers would have their own cable. Luckily, I did, but I imagine many people that buy this for use with a Mac would not have an available lightning cable.

Other Thoughts: - Highly recommended if you play games on an iPad or Mac. This seems like the best option on the market at a reasonable price.

Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Lots of storage space
- Seems reliable for the time I've been using it
- Runs fairly quiet and doesn't get too hot
- Slightly faster data transfer speeds than a non-hybrid spinning 7200 RPM drive

Cons: - not as fast as an actual flash-based SSD

Other Thoughts: - All in all, I'm happy with this drive. I have been using Seagate 1 - 4TB drives for 10 years now in a professional capacity (3D design, video editing) and I've never had a drive fail. Hopefully this drive will last a long time as well.

- If you can get this drive for the same, or slightly more than a standard 7200RPM spinning drive, then it would be worth it. As other reviewers have noted, do not expect near-SSD speeds with these hybrid drives.

Corsair Hydro Series H110i Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler Cooling. 280mm CW-9060026-WW
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: This is a great liquid cooler for the price. I have it installed in my NZXT Phantom 530 case. This is the second time I've installed a CPU cooler, so the installation process went smoothly, and much quicker than the first go-around.

The H110i is keeping my Intel i7-5960X nice and cool. I've got the CPU mildly overclocked at 4.0 GHz. The temps under idle and normal workload conditions sit right around 30 degrees C, 86 degrees F. Using HW Monitor, the peak temps logged on the CPU are 46 degrees C, 114 degrees F.

Cons: None so far.
