Arcade Deluxe Electronic Driving Game w/ Steering Wheel, Lights, Sounds
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Responsive wheel
Ergonomic design
Doesn't get too sticky (from constant cereal mess)
HD display(ish)
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.

Legend Gaming Mouse USB 800 / 1600 / 2400 / 3200dpi Wired Optical Gaming Game Mouse - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

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 cable

Acer Laptop Aspire V3-551G-8454 AMD A8-Series A8-4500M (1.90 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7670M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

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 :)
