NZXT Crafted Series Tempest 410 Elite Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overall it is a great case, looks nice, and everything fit well. The removable front fans with dust filters makes it very easy to clean.

Cons: I wish the HDD bays faced perpendicular to the mobo, and it makes cable management kind of tricky. Also the grommets that lead to the right side for cable management come very easily and are difficult to route cables through without them falling off. There is only one USB 3.0 port in the front, which is kind of disappointing but not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: Not quite a perfect case but still great for the price.

Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with Three-Lever Throttle (PZ44)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great Product 04/27/2012

This review is from: Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with Three-Lever Throttle (PZ44)

Pros: It is a pretty good yoke, and the yoke itself will last a long time (going on 4 years, no problems). Combining it with their rudder pedals, it makes for some excellent simming.
Plenty of programmable buttons and reverse thrust on the throttles (programmed as a button) is a nice feature, though it could have been better implemented. It has a clock/stopwatch on the front which is very convenient for non-radar position reports and logging times for a VA.

Cons: After a few years, the throttle quad will stop working. It has happened twice to me (first time was my fault) and Saitek took FOREVER to replace it both times, but it was free of charge (even though the 2nd time it was out of warranty). Also, the yoke only turns 45 degrees in each direction, which is kind of a drawback when you're used to real aircraft. I wish there was a way to set the clock on it to zulu without setting at your computer time, but it wasn't a big deal for me. The pins on the throttle quad cable are very easy to bend, so make sure you line everything up when plugging it in, I recommend plugging it in before mounting the yoke.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying it, I would seriously consider upgrading to their newer Cessna yoke. Its about $50 more than the normal price of this one ($75 compared to the Newegg price ;) ) but it is made of better material and (more importantly) it has a 1:1 scale so it can turn 90 degrees in each direction. If you cannot afford the upgrade, I would definitely buy this one. When paired with rudder pedals it is a great addition to any flight simulator setup.
