Acer Predator G9-591-70XR Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB DDR4 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 4 GB 15.6

Pros: - Beautiful IPS Display
- Excellent gaming performance. Fallout 4 runs on ultra near 60fps
- Easy access for the HDD and SSD, with a simple removable panel on the underside
- M.2 SSD, with an additional slot for an NVMe ssd
- No bloatware
- Excellent cooling

Cons: - Very large. It rivals the average 17 in laptop in size
- Speaker sound quality isn't as good as it could be
- Two of the four ram slots are not easily accessible, as you have to disassemble the laptop to access the ones where the memory has been installed

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my MSI GE60 laptop, as it had kicked the bucket. With a 980M, this laptop is a gaming beast. It's a bit on the bulky side, which I knew going in to this purchase. It will not fit in most laptop backpacks, even 17 inch ones.

A little disappointed with the sound system, as at higher volumes, there is some audio distortion. Not at the same level of quality as my last laptop.

Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Better late than never 10/29/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows

Pros: - Can finally use Xbox one Controllers with Windows 10
- It works

Cons: - Took Microsoft two years to put this out
- Wasn't plug and play
- Only works on Windows 10

Other Thoughts: Prior to ordering this I was using DS4 Windows and a Sony DS4 via bluetooth. Then I upgraded to Windows 10 and the bluetooth functionality stopped working.

I bought this, despite being angry with Microsoft for taking a year after releasing Xbox One to have Windows driver support for the controllers, and almost two years to release a Wireless Adapter.

Anyways it doesn't work right out of the box. After you plug it in, and Windows 10 fails to install the right driver, you need to head to settings, and Windows Update to manually install the driver yourself.

In any case it works fine once you get it working.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - UEFI bios is very straightforward and workable
- CPU overclocks are near perfect for stability
- Supports ram that can be clocked quite high

Cons: Nothing note-worthy.

Other Thoughts: I usually buy ASUS motherboards and I plan to keep on doing that. However, I wanted to try something new and heard great things about ASRock the past couple of years. I can see why after testing out this board.

I absolutely love the way the UEFI bios is laid out, and overclocking with an i5 3570k is a breeze. I had it stable at 5.0ghz on liquid before settling on a much more reasonable 4.2ghz.

I would definitely buy this board or one of its big brothers again if the need would arise.
