XFX Radeon R9 290X R9-290X-8DFD 8GB 512-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Double Dissipation Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works as it should.

Cons: It idles at a hot temperature - at 27C ambient temps my air-cooled i7-4790k at 4.2Ghz across all cores with fans at 25% idles at 28C while this GPU at stock frequencies/voltages will idle at 37C with the fans at 30% (on a 1080p 60hz 16:9 TV, so no real idling stress.)

I have 13 total fans in my desktop case (including the 2 from this GPU,) yet when I set all fans to 100% RPM these fans are the loudest (my fans range from 120mm, 140mm, and 200mm, 2000RPM is the highest RPM.)

Other Thoughts: I haven't witnessed other R9 290x 8GB temperatures/fan dBs, so I'm not sure if XFX actually has the best mounted cooler and best calibrated frequencies and voltages for this card, but temps should not be that hot while idling.

Rosewill RHSP-13001 - 360-Joule Surge Protection Electricity Load Meter and Energy Monitor with Controllable On/Off Outlet and Protected LED Indicator
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Displays wattage used AND surge protection? Definitely my favorite accessory for my desktop. While the device itself is small the display is relatively large, so it's easy to see, especially at a distance, and is very easy to mount.

Cons: Display isn't backlit, and a toggle to turn on/off a backlight would have been a nice feature.

Other Thoughts: It's a very accurate read - it detects that my desktop pulls 0.1W when it's turned off.

Wii Remote+Nunchuk Controller for Nintendo Wii + Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great Substitute 07/23/2015

This review is from: Wii Remote+Nunchuk Controller for Nintendo Wii + Case

Pros: It works on the Wii and Wii U without issues.
It syncs to the Wii and Wii U just as quickly as Nintendo brand controllers.
Great bundle deal for the Wiimote, nunchuck, silicon wrap, and wrist strap.

Cons: -1 Egg: Nunchuck analog stick is a little loose and will break just as quickly as my other aftermarket nunchucks.

-1 Egg: Wiimote itself isn't compatible with PC (tested on both Windows 7 and 8.1.) The authentic Nintendo Wiimotes and several other aftermarket Wiimotes I own are able to connect to my PC via Bluetooth (or, on Windows 7, an integrated Bluetooth infrared sensor bar,) but this specific controller can't interact with the emulator.

Other Thoughts: The Wiimote, silicon wrap, and wrist strap are perfect, but I'd only recommend this particular controller if you're planning on replacing the nunchuck and are only using it for a Wii or Wii U.
