This review is from: Arcade Deluxe Electronic Driving Game w/ Steering Wheel, Lights, Sounds
Pros: Responsive wheel
Doesn't get too sticky (from constant cereal mess)
The sounds make you actually feel the car, and the vibes
Built in shift knob has more than 1 gear(s)
Cons: not compatible with DiRT Rally
price.... it's a little high
Other Thoughts: I bought it for my son, and he immediately didn't like the gift. He played with it for about a minute. :( I guess 17 year olds don't realize how fun this really is! Then I started playing with it and its a blast! I couldn't find the included cable to attach to PC so I just super glued a USB cable to the back. In most games it's completely unresponsive. The devs should have put more effort in the software, however the hardware seems sound. In Watch Dogs, I can drive the car a bit (well at least I think I can, the game's graphics are that bad). All in all a decent product, probably will enjoy many more hours.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It looks cool. has red LEDs
Cons: doesnt contour well to my hand. Isn't very accurate, especially in games. If you want an inexpensive mouse, try Logitech instead.
Other Thoughts: Also has a rather short usb cableREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: SPEED -- I ran Passmark and scored almost 5000 in CPU tests without overclock.
Wifi -- Much stronger than anyone else's at work :) and bluetooth is a bonus (although does not work with PS3 controller like my desktop bluetooth does)
PRICE -- I dare you to find a laptop under $800 that can play Farcry 3 on the same settings with better frame rates!
Cons: Not a fan of the keyboard because of the size of the arrow keys and the tactile response isn't as good as other brands, but I won't dock an egg for it.
The screen has to be angled just right to see it perfectly, so not great for sharing a movie with someone much shorter than you, but that's pretty common on most all laptops.
The cooling solution... This laptop has a CPU and GPU and has only 1 small intake fan for the both of them. I recommend NEVER placing this on a surface that would block the airflow from the bottom. Do not put on bed, or other cloth surface. Invest in a cooling pad if you plan on gaming much.
Other Thoughts: I'm not a fan of laptops at all. They are expensive, and significantly slower than their equivalent desktop counterparts . For on-the-go gaming I usually bring my mini desktop because it fits in my bag just fine and most hotels have TV's with HDMI input.
I got this laptop to replace said desktop. At first I was thinking, "oh boy, now I have a slower-than-snails computer", but boy was I wrong! I didn't want to break the bank and get a gaming laptop, and didn't want to NOT game on the go, so this thing is PERFECT. 5 eggs all day, I'd give it a 6th egg if I could! I did swap out the HDD with an SSD and added 4 more GB of RAM, so I'm a happy camper :)
