XIGMATEK FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing) Cooling System Crystal Series CLF-F1255 120mm Purple LED Case Fan, 2 pcs in 1 package CFS-SXGJS-PU2
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: They are fans and had the color led's i was looking for, they move good air. They were honestly only picked up to use in pictures for the final shots in a mod I was working on. I did not plan on using them full time, but was actually satisfied and the corsair fans I was going to swap into there are still sitting around collecting dust.

Cons: A tad pricey, but was well worth it, was tough to find the color.

Etekcity® 1-Pack Dualshock Wired Gamepad Controller for PC
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Makes a better paperweight 04/10/2014

This review is from: Etekcity® 1-Pack Dualshock Wired Gamepad Controller for PC

Pros: Holds down your papers quite well, if you hold it by the cable you can spin it around in circles pretending its a lasso. Umm it doesn't cause you physical pain to touch. It wont eat your babies while you sleep.

Cons: While the Etekcity DualShock Gamepads are cheaply priced it is for a reason, although they do come nice packaged are quickly shipped and arrive intact, they do not function as they should. In order to get partial functionality out of the game pads you will need to invest 3-4 hours of profile creation in stand alone software for each game, then select the profile from that software before luanching the game you wish to use the controller for. If it was a much more indepth gamepad/controller set up, like the Logitech Flight System G940, I could understand hours of profile creation. But, for a standard controller they should be plug and play, and after the hours I spent working with this controller to try and find a postitive feature of it I am only able to conclude that while the controller is decent it for some reason is using a very immature and propietary driver system. I have recently put more research into this controller, and it appears to be a Chinese knock-off of a Chinese knock-off, upon looking for some clue as to who the actual manufacturer was, since EteckCity just stamps their name on the product, I removed the sticker from the back of the gamepad and found yet another stick with other model numbers and more information provided there. Which led me to find what the controller was originally pretending to be, I did track down the product that was identified by the original product number and it worked flawlessy and was a simple plug and play set up. The "family tree" for this controller if we can call it that would be the Logitech Dual Action Gamepad that works like a dream you plug the cable in it is identified uses the default windows drivers and requires no further effort on your part, the next one inline was a clone or knock off produced in China under several different names, and began selling at half the price of the logitech controller, it worked okay but was flawed by the internal components not holding up to extensive use. Then we have the clone of a clone, the controller/gamepad that EtekCity has stamped their name on, it uses slightly cheaper internal components and then for some reason they decided to ditch the wonderful interface hardware that would allow it to remain plug and play. At the end of the day, I would avoid this controller all together unless you are looking for a paperweight that might fool your friends into thinking it is actually a gamepad, and would advise you to spend a little bit more money. I spent roughly 20 hours messing with configurations and settings trying to get the product to function as it should but was un able to ever obtain full functionality.

Other Thoughts: CONS CONTINUED(yes it was more then 3,000 characters)

A list of the games I tested or attempted to test this product with are as follows-

-Borderlands was the closest to functioning out of the games I attempted to test across 2 different OS(win8 and win7). The reason I only say it partially worked was that after three hours of fighting, I was able to get some of the keys to function correctly as to what they should be set for. Then the left thumbstick when pressed forward would make the character walk backwards. Trying to invert and swap the axis' in multiple configurations, which only swapped the orientation of the right thumbstick, I was left with no luck to get it to work correctly and gave up and then dropped the controllers into a box and stuck them in a closet.
