This review is from: Brother TN-115BK Toner Cartridge 5,000 Page Yield; Black
Pros: We get more than 8000 pages per cartridge by resetting the counter wheel.
Once it hits 5000 pages, it stops and we remove the cartridge, reset the counter wheel and reinstall. I would estimate 8-9000 pages in total. We order a new cartridge when the counter wheel is reset to have on hand.
Replace with new cartridge when printed documents begin to fade.
Cons: Resetting the counter wheel requires a small amount of skill. Use google to find the tutorial on how to reset the counter wheel.
I can see the usefulness of the counter wheel. Makes it idiot proof but I'm more concerned with value than a small inconvenience of having to reprint when the cartridge is actually going empty.
Other Thoughts: We print lots of documents that use only a small amount of toner so resetting the counter wheel works very well for us. We keep track of the quantity of paper packs(500/pk) we use.
Remember to select Mono printing to ensure the black toner cartridge is used or it will use the color cartridges to make black.
Pros: This is a Great Value. Meets all my needs. Black Ops 60fps avg with AA/AF off. 48fps avg AA 2x. Homefront dx11 medium settings AA/AF off 36fps solid. CPU max temp 74,GPU max temp 63 on counter top surface.
Runs Adobe apps well. I knew I needed a quad core to multitask to my expectations. This notebook is actually faster than my old desktop setup in both work and gaming: AMD 550BEx2/2xHD4850 in crossfire.
The 6xxx series gpu's will be a must have in the future.
The n970 performs better than the n950 and much better than the n930. So don't give blog reviews for those cpu's much weight comparing to the n970.
I would definitely buy again if I had a do over.
Cons: Back up disks took me over 2 hours to complete but a must have to be prepared. Lots Windows 7 updates but not unlike a new install.
Other Thoughts: I almost didn't buy this laptop because of the many reviews I found doing web searches that mostly favored the i5 cpu for gaming. I realize now, the reviewers were comparing games that didn't take advantage of quad core cpu's not unlike how no games make use of six core cpu's at the moment that I play. All my games are optimized for four cores and it shows.
Also the 1366x768 was an issue and I was considering a notebook that had 1600x900 but I think this cpu/gpu is balanced better for 1366x768.
The ultimate reason I bought this one was because I had set a cap of $600. $19 extra was worth it.
I game on a desktop with AMD 965x4 cpu/2x 6850HD gpu in crossfire but when on the run nice to have a laptop that can get the job done.
This review is from: Logitech G13 (920-000946) Advanced Gameboard
Pros: I bought this to save my keyboard and to have more keys that were in line. It works perfect. I use the thumb joystick to activate for options/equipment and as an additional dive/prone key. the keypad is very programmable and with the software I can see who is speaking in teamspeak and use admin options. the pad can be programmed with key binds to give almost unlimited control over other programs while in game.
Cons: I wish it had more default keys for other programs but with only 4 keys dedicated to that what can you expect. bottom line, it's way better than using your keyboard.
Other Thoughts: For people who complain about the joystick, I don't think it was intended to replace the wsad keys for movement. I play leagues and ladders in COD and this pad is a must have. Think of the joystick as a quick flick of the thunb 5 way control. not constant use control like an xbox game pad or flight joystick.READ FULL REVIEW
