SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Forged Red
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Absolutely Awesome Mouse 09/06/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Forged Red

Pros: Great ergonomic shape that fit well in my hand which is about average size I would say. I love the color of course!

The bottom of the mouse sports two metal "pads" for lack of a better word which allow the mouse to be used as if its on a mouse pad on almost any surface. The DPI is also at just the right level for my laptop and desktop.

The cable design isn't braided like many of the mouse at a slightly pricier range however the rubber they used still feels not only very sturdy but very smooth and easy to move around.

Cons: 100% the price is a problem. I can add a little more to this price and get a razor mouse with a braided gold plated cable that comes with software to customize almost every feature imaginable. On the other hand the price can be chopped in half and Ill get a mouse at about the same quality. For some people a brand is everything and this mouse has very nice quality, but I'm not sure it warrants the 35$ price tag. That is why I took off an egg.

SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller

5 out of 5 eggs Really Great Design 09/06/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller

Pros: The first and most important feature of a controller is its feeling while your holding it in your hands. This controller fits my hands almost as well as a PS4 controller does. The handles go out far enough where holding it with even one hand is very comfortable. All of the buttons are just the right distance away from the center of my hand

The buttons themselves have a nice click but not a GREAT click if you get what I mean. When I play games I need a solid feedback from a button that yes I just pressed you and these just don't feel quite right but they are no means a deal breaker. The joysticks on the other hand have perfect tension to them.

As far as connection for this controller goes, it connected quickly and without issue to all of my apple products, the directions were very easy to read and understand.

Cons: Well it didn't work with my android products and that was a bummer. It wouldn't be difficult for the manufacturer to handle that as it's just a software issue, but I don't know the whole story. This is an apple product so I didn't see any reason to deduct an egg for that issue.

Other than the buttons feeling a little weird when pressing the controller has no cons.

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

Pros: First off, I want to start by saying that I bought this drive because of its manufacturer as well as for the price to GB ratio. Its on an amazing sale at the time of this writing and you cant beat the speed and capabilities of this drive.

I've had it in my PC for about a month now, its very quiet even under a lot of load and doesn't run very hot. My old drive lasted me about 4 years but recently started making noises so I know when to cut my losses. Install was easy. As far as a normal hard drive goes, this drive performs very well. I don't have a bunch of numbers to post, but compared to my older HD, my computer boots and runs files much faster. This hard drive is no SSD drive though as a true SSD would be leagues ahead of it, HOWEVER, good luck trying to afford a 4TB SSD, even if they exist yet.

Cons: I said above the install was easy, yeah, for the hardware. Getting it actually set up was another issue. The drive came completely unformatted, which really isn't a problem, but I couldn't even see the drive after hooking it up from my OS. I had to do a clean install from the ground up and in that install I formatted the HD. I should have been able to do that using the OS but I couldn't even do that let alone a system clone. Then when I was formatting it, I ran in to additional issues. For whatever reason only about 2TB of memory was allocated to my formatted drive. The other 2TB is inaccessible for some reason. Truthfully, I don't care, I wont even use up 2TB, but I would at least like the option of using my whole HD. Why the issues arose, I dont know and I don't have the time or the energy to fix them.

Other Thoughts: All things considered, it's not a bad hard drive, there were some software issues but not enough to phone home about.
