Far Cry 4 [Online Game Code]
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs More of the same..and more 12/17/2014

This review is from: Far Cry 4 [Online Game Code]

Pros: Familiar gameplay, great graphics, user drive storyline.

For Far cry veterans, the gyrocopter is a huge addition to the game.

Cons: Familiar gameplay. I swore when I finished climbing the last tower in the game I would never do that again. Guess what. I am.

Needs a fairly current system. Ran great with 16gb ram on a EVGA GTX 660 FTW. 2011-v3 processor.

Other Thoughts: I'm only into the game for a few hours, but for those you you who can't wait for a bundle deal, you need some info before dropping $60 on the gotta have it now reasoning.

It's winter, you can't be outside quite as much. go for it.

I typically have had to wait a few months to play a hot new/old game. This time I grabbed a bundle deal that was too good to turn down.

Uplay installed with no problems on win7/64 and I have actually never had a drm problem with uplay, and I also run steam for other games.

The game mechanics are good, graphics awesome, soundtrack amazing. Can't say much for that copy of a disk utility I bought last week....

Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Western Digital seems to be making quality products.

Haven't had a single issue with ANY of my WD drives.

Well not true. I snapped the sata connector on another drive, but it was quickly replaced under warranty. assume that your drive may have been made with the very brittle plastic for the connectors

That being said and other web reports of the same I'd say to use additional care connecting and working around SATA drives of any brand.

The drive is quiet and showed no errors when stress tested

Cons: Not a 10krpm 5 year warranty velociraptor.

2 year warranty pretty good these days on

In general SATA connectors are fragile and need to be worked around like sheet metal, one moment of carelessness and you are going to get hurt.(in the wallet)

Other Thoughts: The drive being a bare bone no cable/mounting hardware/box product arrived in what appears to be NewEggs defacto bare product shipping, the "inflate-box"..very nice cushion system made from plastic air bags.

No more little cardboard boxes bouncing around.

You'll want to wear a grounding strap if the weather is very dry when you unpack these products.

Pick a few up on sale and toss them in an external enclosure for quick back ups.

Backups are more important then ever these days, who wants to go thru an entire PC setup and software installs/validations when you can protect you boot drive for under $100?

RFID Proximity Door Entry Access Control System + 10 Key Fobs
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs good for indoors 12/10/2014

This review is from: RFID Proximity Door Entry Access Control System + 10 Key Fobs

Pros: Bought a few of these a number of years ago. They work. Keyfobs are handy, you can also get rfid cards that can work with this class of product

Cons: easily overridden as everything is exposed. I put mine behind a Plexiglas cover w/ 1 way screws to keep the kids from tampering with it. I use it to control the lock for the basement door ( where my massive collection of fine beers are stored)

Other Thoughts: instructions can be a little frustrating. Remember, products of this class sold for hundreds just a few years ago.
