This review is from: Vizio 42" 1080p 120Hz LED Smart TV with Theater 3D, E420D-A0
Pros: Uh... I don't really know what to put here. It's in great condition for a refurbished TV, but... coming from me, that doesn't mean much.
The best pro from me is that it hasn't died yet. I always hope that anything I get online doesn't die on me, especially things this big. I would have been so sad and depressed if it had.
Cons: It's one of those smart TVs with the Yahoo smart apps setup. I utterly hate that. I have found ways that I can remove it and change it to the Android or Google smart apps setup, but I don't have the funds to risk bricking (render 100% useless) my T.V., no matter how low the risk.
It's not like I can't live with it and just deal with it. It's just annoying and it's like using an old phone with bloatware on it. Thankfully it's not like that always. Mostly when it loads up the apps bar.
Other Thoughts: There are three things I should mention that are negative, but not worth being a con or take off an egg.
My first negative remark is that there is a pressure spot. However, it's only visible when the screen is nearly black because the pressure spot is white instead of the usual black (probably not a pressure spot, but it's shaped like one). Even then it's difficult to see unless you're looking for it (like a stain you tried to remove and didn't get all of it, but enough you won't notice unless you're actively looking for it). It is slightly more noticeable when using the 3D, but it is still not noticeable unless you're looking for it.
Second, the T.V. doesn't respond to the remote unless the remote is pointing directly at the receiver. With new batteries, the remote doesn't have to be directly in line with the IR receiver and can be obstructed some. But when the batteries are low, you MUST be pointing directly at the IR receiver with no obstructions.
Finally, ... I forget what the third one is. That's how minor these things are. In any case...
These are minor, and a bit expected. Pressure points aren't expected, but possible from a refurbished TV. I was disappointed about the whole remote thing. The batteries that came with it were not at full charge, so I had to suffer through having clear line of sight to the IR receiver. And the other thing (whatever it was) too. None of those are worth being a con or taking off an egg.
I would definitely buy it again if I had to.
This review is from: Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: This mouse is so good, if you don't have it, then you're a loser!
Er... uh... I mean....
This is the perfect MMO gaming mouse to have. In fact, I prefer it for all kinds of games.
What I really love, is how when you set up the buttons and have it save that on the computer (see Cons for why it's best to do that), it's set for the profile you have setup if you use it with the G510 (which I highly recommend). It's basically per-profile setups. No reprogramming buttons every time you change games.
It's fell is also really good. I can't switch back to the regular mice anymore. I might not even be able to use a Razor Naga because of the difference in shape. But I've never tried a Naga so I don't know.
Cons: The only con I have about this mouse, is that the on-board memory, is not reliable. It will wipe itself. I don't know why. I've never had anything near it that could possibly do that. So I switched it to save it on my computer, and it changes with each profile I select with my G510 keyboard as I mentioned in the Pros (I still recommend the combination).
It's a minor inconvenience though as I prefer the profile changing with the keyboard over the on-board memory anyways.
Other Thoughts: Did I mention that it's at it's peak use with the G510?
Honestly, Logitech has done another excellent job making a great mouse.
Yeah, the on-board memory needs some work, but as I said before, and just be sure I said it, it's best to just use the per-profile setup instead of the on-board memory with the G510.
This review is from: Logitech 920-002530 G510 Keyboard
Pros: It's the best gaming keyboard you could get. I spit on you mechanical keyboards!
I'm kidding. This is an excellent keyboard for MMOs and even strategy games like Starcraft. Between the software and the features, this is a really awesome keyboard. It's no G519, but it doesn't need the fancy LED screen that plays YOUTube videos to tell you what you really need to know.
Logitech has succeeded again!
Cons: This isn't really a con as it may just be the fact that it's refurbished, but the buttons around the screen respond to a single push as a double push.
Basically if you push a button once, it acts like you pushed it twice. Sometimes it does it repeatedly and is mostly annoying when switching through apps.
But like I said, it probably does that because it's refurbished. And it's possibly only on mine too.
Other Thoughts: To go along with the "con", if you want to call it that, the very minor inconvenience it causes is far out weighed by the rest that it does/has.
I mentioned it only as a heads up for those considering purchasing this.
I say DO IT NAO!
