5 out of 5 eggs ZOMG! It's OVERWATCH!!!!! 06/19/2016

This review is from: Overwatch Software - PC Games

Pros: It's this. . like. . . video game thingie. . .and it comes with lots of extra stuffs!

Cons: It's WAAAAAAAYYYYY super expensive, and unless you're a huge fan of the video game thingie in question [or a fan of the company that MADE said video game thingie] you're probably mega better off buying either the origins edition or even the $40 base edition.

Other Thoughts: On a more serious note what you get here vs Origins edition is a relatively decent sized statue of soldier 76 made out of some kind of semi soft plastic and the typical wonderful "art of" [game thingie] book. All the digital content I'm PRETTY SURE comes with the Origins edition for half the price.

So again, unless you're a HUGE fan of Blizzard and/or Overwatch there are MUCH cheaper alternatives to jump into the game.

For the collector, however. . you probably didn't even need to read this: you know what you're getting already. The only thing missing from this set vs previous Blizzard Collector's dedition is a mousepad. I don't use them ANYWAY, but it was a little weird to not see one in the box.

Pros: The panel itself is AMAZING! it's not QUITE 5k iMac quality, but it's darn close! Overclocked to 72Hz, smooth as butter on my wife's GTX 970 and my GTX 780 ti

Cons: Let's get the obvious out of the way: If you're reading the reviews you're going to see almost everyone complain about the stand. It's such a common thread I had aftermarket stands here before the monitors even showed up. Other than that, there aren't a ton of amenities to this monitor. It lacks the USB Type-C connector of the UD88, and it has no USB hub.

Also, no glossy option. I realize that this is actually a pro to most people, but once you get used to the premium panels used by Apple, Razer, and (surprisingly) Microsoft. . you get used to it. Included cables are 4', not 6'. Depending on your setup, you may need to pick up an extra cable.

Other Thoughts: In short, ALL the money is in the panel, and the panel is WELL worth the price of admission. As this model has been going on sale for $399, it's a VERY worthy investment PROVIDED you don't need any premium add ons.

PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE)

2 out of 5 eggs If only it read 07/26/2015

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE)

Pros: Capacity, read/write speeds

Cons: See other

Other Thoughts: This is the second unit I have purchased, and I've had the same issue with both: When formatted with exfat or OS extended journaled, the drive simply starts to not be detected after a few days. My PC will only detect over USB 2.0, and on my mac it will only stay up for about 20 seconds, just long enough to corrupt anything I'm trying to move from one machine to another. I figured the first one for a fluke, but it's now official: I can't say how it works under NTFS, but I have a multi OS component that essentially requires EXfat, and for whatever reason this drive has issues with that.
