This review is from: USB 3.1 Type C Adapter, CAPAS Hi-speed Micro USB 3.1 Type C Male to Standard Type A USB 3.0 Female Adapter for Apple New Macbook 12 Inch, LeTv LE1 Pro, Nokia N1 Type-C Supported Devices OTG
Pros: I can use my old USB 3.0 devices in my fancy new USB c port (until manufacturers all switch over)
Cons: Shipping took a while, but it was free from overseas.
Other Thoughts: I used this to add an oculus rift sensor to my last open port on my new laptop. Plug n play adapter, instantly recognized as USB 3.0. Can't get more simple than that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 15.6" GE62VR Apache Pro-024 Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 12 GB Memory 256 GB SSD 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Gaming Laptop VR Ready - "ONLY @ NEWEGG"
Pros: -Awesome gaming laptop with great specs
-Beautiful keyboard that also feels good to use
-Runs Oculus Rift and with the second sensor for the touch controllers plugged into the USB 2.0 slot, it works silky smooth! This is a viable portable VR system for a great price.
- Good Speakers, and the keyboard has a mode that changes with audio, which is pretty cool (note that mode does not work with HDMI out audio).
-Came with Mafia 3, Gears of War 4, a 7.1 surround sound headset, and a $100 rebate (Cyber Monday Sale)
Cons: -The mouse touchpad is textured in a weird way and it is not as accurate/responsive as I would like it to be. Not a problem if you are using another mouse or controller (like me), but it's worth pointing out.
-Some bloatware, but not as much as I was expecting. I kept the dragon center and steel series drivers, but uninstalled the rest (norton, music maker, etc.). That said, I can't complain about the speed at all, this thing eats games on max settings and the screen is beautiful.
-Battery of course does not last long, but like any gaming laptop, you should have it plugged in when you use it. I can only get about 1.5-2 hours on it without gaming, just web browsing.
Other Thoughts: I was initially looking for a good gaming laptop, and with the advent of the 1060 gpu, I was able to get an affordable VR laptop. I was on the fence about it having only 2 USB 3.0 ports and was looking into a USB-c to USB 3 type of adapter to meet oculus specs. Turns out the second rift sensor plays just fine with the USB 2.0 port, so the laptop is oculus rift + oculus touch capable right out of the box! I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere during my research since the touch is so new, so I want to confirm for anyone wondering. I don't experience any lag or tracking issues!
On top of the burly GPU, it has a nice sized SSD for boot, and a spacious storage drive. I am looking at getting a 9.5mm optical drive caddy to replace the useless dvd drive with another SSD, but will need to put the machine through more testing before I open it up (replacing any internals on this thing voids the warranty). If you're looking for a laptop that can play games maxed out at 1080p, or a portable VR machine, this is a perfect laptop.
This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller
Pros: Looks great, 5 fan control with 5 temp probes, fits single drive bay perfectly. The ability to turn off display and sound is great at night.
Cons: No RPM monitoring, just power% for each fan, but not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: For the price, this controller is great. Fast response to touch, auto adjustment on temp or manual control. PROTIP: when in manual mode and all 5 fans are selected, touch the center % and then the +/- control all fans at once.READ FULL REVIEW
