NVIDIA Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GTX Game Bundle
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs GOTY 2015 03/26/2015

This review is from: NVIDIA Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GTX Game Bundle

Pros: Can't wait to play it! It was free! :-D

Cons: I can't play it now... :-( *Games not out as of my writing this.*

Other Thoughts: The Witcher franchise is awesome and THIS. WILL. NOT. DISAPPOINT!

GIGABYTE GV-N970IXOC-4GD GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cards are fast, quiet, and low on power. NICE!

Cons: See below...

Other Thoughts: 2nd car I bought came with Hynix ram that wasn't as OC-able as the first with samsung ram, being that they are very quiet I wasn't worried about SLi but it got worse when the 2nd card had the most awful coil whine and it sounded like the fan was soon to give. This was made worse when the car would crash and no longer function. RMA'd to gigabyte and got it repaired after 3 week wait. Worse was that they wouldn't honor my request of simply exchanging the card for one with samsung ram...

Belkin WeMo F5Z0489 LED Lighting Starter Set, 2 WeMo Smart Light Bulbs & WeMo Link, Control Multiple WeMo Bulbs from Anywhere, Wi-Fi Enabled
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - Bulbs are cool to the touch after many hours of use.
- Rated for a long life
- Very bright on high brightness *I think it's on high, read on...*
- Power efficient!
That's about it...

I couldn't get the link to recognize on either my android phone, or my ipad. There's also no web interface for this so the smart features are rendered completely useless, making these just regular LED bulbs.
I can't update the firmware or even check if I'm on the latest one as I can't get the app to recognize the bulbs past the initial setup, after which the link LED flashes orange/amber rather than green.
IFFT is in beta, I wouldn't advertise it unless it was a full featured working system. For shame Belkin.

Other Thoughts: It's very disappointing that this didn't live up to it's promise. I would've been content with simply being able to dim the lights from my phone/ipad or turn them on/off. But no such luck.

Maybe one day it'll magically "work."

Sadly, that day isn't today and I've all but given up on the WeMo system all together.
