This review is from: Logitech 963290-0403 Extreme 3D Pro USB Joystick
Pros: While it worked, great. I paid $30 for it at a well-known blue & gold vendor whose name rhymes with test try.
Cons: Button responsiveness quit after around 18mo. Hat switch is binary (all or nothing). Buttons labeled 5, 3, 4, 6 seem to work in Windows testing, but none of the games work with it. Imagine having ti spam a button 20x before it works.
So... it's dead.
The Windows 7 diags I was running had no problem telling me the flight stick was working. On a whim, I connected a gamepad and tried the same game with the pad.... ZERO problems, worked great. Plugged the Extreme 3D back in, tests fine in Windows 7 x64 devices. Tried in the game, still mostly unresponsive.
Other Thoughts: Outside of warranty...
It was a $30 flight stick that lasted beyond the warranty about 6 months. I *might buy another one, but I really want something that will give me 2+ years of life before hardware failure.
And I'm willing to pay for that.
Pros: Decent price for the screen size. Happy with my choice after filtering out the defect displays and getting ones that work.
Cons: Defect rate. Did not buy at NewEgg. Bought at TestGuy (sounds like). Same price. Glad I did.
Viewing aspect, but I do sit in front if it, so does not affect me.
Defect rate: Opened 7 of them, 4 had stuck/dead pixels. that is a >50% failure rate on your product.
Other Thoughts: I run two GTX 580s in SLI from a year 2011 build. Happy with the setup.
I used a Friday evening to drive to 3 different TestGuy stores in my area. I wanted 3X monitors for my triple-head setup.
The final answer, is that I have them.
To the VENDOR: I ended up open 7 displays if this model to find 3 that did not have dead pixels upon unboxing from NEW. 4 of the 7 were defective. That should tell you something!!!
This is why displays are THE ONE COMPONENT I never buy online. Defect rates and dead pixel policies make this a lose/lose proposition for the buyer.... especially with multiple displays.
I do not accept a single dead pixel when I buy brand new. If one grows over time, fine, but not as new.
I would rather pay a little more at retail and quick swap/return then pay return shipping and face the waiting time because the vendor quality assurance dept. is inoperative, as my experience clearly demonstrates.
Minus 2 eggs for the defect rate. I was prepared for it, though, so I came out ahead.
Pros: Bluray + DVD movie. Decent movie.
Cons: 30? Price on the #gg.
Other Thoughts: I got this at \/\/@l /\/\@rt for $E|ght-t33n d0ll@rs. Two discs inside, Bluray + the DVD version (digital copy is the marketing term?). Not sure why it costs >1/3 more online.READ FULL REVIEW
