Spore PC Game
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs fix for DRM problem 11/04/2014

This review is from: Spore PC Game

Pros: i loved the game and there is a way around the DRM.
i payed for the game when it first came out.
so i am an honest owner.

Cons: the DRM.

the lock that won't allow you to install it forced me to use illegal methods to use a game i am an honest owner of.
and it doesn't stop people from getting around it.
it is a bad idea and i hope it is never repeated.

Other Thoughts: if you look around you will find there is an illegal fix for this DRM problem.
i was forced to use it, and you can use it too.
i will give no more details, but this is a problem that drives honest people like me to use illegal methods to get around something that should not be there in the first place.

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply & New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: it's corsair and they have a good reputation so i will replace this with another corsair power supply.
but NOT anything that brags about being SILENT or QUIET.

Cons: it's corsair and they have a good reputation so i was quite disappointed.
it seems that they are using customers to replace in house quality control.
this power supply blew out my motherboard and i am hoping that it did not blow out my new graphics card also.
the graphics card has 1152 cuda cores and 4 gigs of ddr5.
but i have to wait till i get a new mother board and power supply to find out since this old machine i am using now is certainly not going to support a graphics card like that for even a short test run.
so we will see.
i suppose it is too late to get an rma number, and even if i did i would not want another one of these, i would prefer to have the money applied to a corsair power supply that claims to be loud as hell but reliable.
and yes i am going to buy another corsair PSU.

Other Thoughts: i was quite disappointed with what happened and have spent several hours, 6 or more looking around at the negative comments on other products. mother boards, graphics cards and other components.
it seems that there is a trend towards shoddy quality control across all types of computer components, not just corsair.

so my idea is to look at the negative reports and see if the company is doing more than just making some sympathetic reply in the comments area to people.
many of the negative comments you will see include descriptions of long drawn out back and forth involving people who bought new parts getting used and damaged and even DOA parts in return for items that they paid full price for.
sometimes several times in a row.

so i have read the negative comments here and decided that even though i am expected to replace quality control for this company, i just might get treated with respect once i have found a faulty device.

so 2 eggs instead of one.

EVGA 04G-P4-3768-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 FTW 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card w/ EVGA ACX Cooler - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: i wrote a review a while ago that mentioned that i did not get the perk that comes with this card.

after a chat with customer service the problem got solved and they sent me another copy, and i got it the next day in the mail.

i knew there was a good reason to like newegg, actually several but this is one of them.

Cons: the only con here was my attitude.

Other Thoughts: business's get things right sometimes, and some more often than others.
