Dell U2414H Black 23.8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: BEAUTIFUL color, slim bezel, lightweight, and all the adjustments. Worth having three in surround for epic gaming. With so many features it's hard not to love this monitor.

Cons: That is, until, we get into the only con about this screen. I ordered three of them. Three. All three came with the dreaded bug where they don't wake up after being in sleep mode for an extended period of time. The only way to get them working proper again is to power them off and on. Replacing the stock DP cables didn't help and neither did messing around with the settings. The internet didn't have much to say either as all the methods on Dells forums didn't work. The last step is to send them in for replacement, but according to others with the issue, you can get another one with the same problems.

Thankfully all my screens are plugged into a power strip, so I have to power cycle the strip when I want to start them up. An extra step that's trivial but shouldn't even need to be done in the first place. And yes, this happens when setup for DP chain and setup normally.

Other Thoughts: I see many reviewers have the same issues that I have with my screens. It's not exclusive to this screen alone, but other dell screens are having the same problems with exiting sleep mode. Whats even more disturbing is voters are coming through here and labeling these reviews as unhelpful. It seems a bit odd that any reviewer that is having these problems has so many unhelpful votes. In extreme cases, some reviewers are calling others names for having these sleep mode issues.

The reviews here speak for the product, but this isn't the only website where this screen is getting bad reviews. Google Dell sleep mode issues for the U2414H and you'll see way more complaints than you see here.

Logitech 963290-0403 Extreme 3D Pro USB Joystick
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good beginner/casual stick. 06/04/2015

This review is from: Logitech 963290-0403 Extreme 3D Pro USB Joystick

Pros: Good stick height - a little tall for my hands but I can still reach all the buttons with relative ease. Great sensitivity, great resistance, and no built-in dead zone (though this could also be a Con depending on the person). Throttle feels nice too, however I never used it due to the positioning.

Cons: Numbered buttons on the base are cheap and can stick after a short time. Stick is slightly loose while centered and quickly becomes worse the more it's used - getting a perfect center eventually becomes a chore. This can be "fixed" by adjusting dead zones in your game or software, but you'll lose sensitivity.

Other Thoughts: This stick served me well for a few months in Elite Dangerous. However, as my skill level increases, I notice more and more the QC shortfalls of this stick. I have since moved on to an entry level HOTAS by Thrustmaster and haven't looked back.

THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Impressive 06/04/2015

This review is from: THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick

Pros: Thrustmaster really knows their stuff. I'll start with the stick.

The stick feels great in my small-ish hands. It's short and has some bulk at the top which helps with grip and comfort. It's quite tight when centered - barely any wobble at all. The buttons are easy to reach, and the knob underneath the unit lets you adjust the sticks' resistance. Resistance and travel are smooth across the axis'.

The throttle is nice as well. A lot of buttons on both sides of the unit, and a few on the platform - all easy to reach. A small notch in the center of the axis gives you tactile feedback when you've hit the center and will keep you there until you move out of it.

The buttons on this HOTAS feel and work as desired. None stick or feel loose. The plastic is what you'd expect for a cheaper unit, but is better than what's on my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro stick that it replaced.

Cons: I'd trade a few of the buttons on the throttle for a thumb hat, but this is just my preference so I won't dock an egg.

Other Thoughts: Like I stated above, this stick replaced my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I was looking for something to get me into the HOTAS setups and I chose this. If you're like me and you've grown accustomed to the 3D Pro, the stick in this set will take a little getting used to as it has some built-in hardware deadzones. I can't say if other sticks are made like this.

Thrustmaster has a big gap in their HOTAS product lineup. The only other HOTAS set they make is the Warthog and that's around $500, an order of magnitude more than this unit. It would be awesome of them to make a HOTAS set priced somewhere between the two. The Saitek HOTAS' in the price range of $200 seem to have terrible QA issues ever since MadCatz bought them, and I stay away from MadCatz products since their stuff breaks so often. So please Thrustmaster, consider the $200 range market for HOTAS' because space sims are in the rise and not everyone is willing to pay $500 for a HOTAS.
