NEW Black PC Wireless Controller Gaming Receiver For XBOX 360
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works with Steam games 09/25/2013

This review is from: NEW Black PC Wireless Controller Gaming Receiver For XBOX 360

Pros: I was looking for an inexpensive way to get a controller to work with Steam games. Mostly Grid 2 and Dark Souls. Since I already had several wireless Xbox 360 controllers this was a cheaper than buying another Xbox 360 controller for Windows. It works great on my Windows 8 64 bit system.

Cons: As others have mentioned the drivers installation is horrible and tricky. The disc it came with is useless. I had to search the internet for "how to install a wireless Xbox 360 controller on Windows 8"

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and stable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Decided to upgrade my Core i7 950 to this Core i7 4770k. As you can imagine it is noticeably faster. The newer processors are faster and have features likeTurbo and that make them more effcient. One bonus is the better chipset which means a better motherboard as well. I was glad to see that the memory format is still the same. For the first time, I was able to upgrade to a new processor without having to upgrade my memory. I put that money into upgrading my SATA2 SSD to a SATA3 SSD so the memory companies still made some money. Was a perfect upgrade for my Core i7 950.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast Drive. Samsung Magician Software.

Cons: more expensive

Other Thoughts: Was slightly more expensive than other drives but was worth it for the speed, and software tools.

Upgraded my system from a Core i7 950 to one of the new Haswell Core i7 4770k. Along with this upgrade came a new motherboard that supported SATA 3 over SATA 2 so I decided to upgrade my SSD as well. I had an OCZ Vertex2 that worked great but decided to go with the great reviews that the 940 Pro series has been getting. It is every bit as fast as advertised. I was pleasantly surprised with the Magician software that came with it. Magician really simplified optimizing my Windows 8 system after the install. It helped to insure the drive were installed correctly with Trim support, ACHI, and on the lastest firmware.
