THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Almost a perfect value for the price. 02/17/2016

This review is from: THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick

Pros: Bought to play Elite Dangerous after seeing a video review. Worked right out of the box and mapping additional functions was pretty simple. Barely have to use the keyboard as far as ship functions are concerned. I even had room to map a couple of power distribution modes. The base has a molded slot that holds an allen wrench that can be used to separate the stick and throttle.

Cons: The cord between the stick and throttle could be longer. If you want a center stick setup it's fine but if you like side-stick forget it. An extra foot of cord or even one that could be easily changed out would earn the full 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I have to say it felt kinda cheesy out of the box but after a bit of game-play I stopped noticing. I bought this because I wanted to get started in Elite Dangerous but couldn't afford the $150+ offerings from other companies. However I will be upgrading to a brand that uses a removable ps2 cable to link the 2 controllers to accommodate my preferred setup.

1 out of 5 eggs Their 970 series has put me off of EVGA 02/13/2016

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: Beautiful pictures. Fits in the slot it is supposed to. Whisper silent *.

Cons: * My definitions of both whisper and silent must be way off. The hardest thing it has to tackle is WoW. The first 970 crashed (black screen requiring 2 reboots per occurrence) frequently. However it was quiet when it functioned. It was a refurb so I blamed myself for going on the cheap and this time I bought a new retail boxed card. This card does not crash but runs at 80 plus degrees with the fans running at take-off speeds. (P.S. I know full well I can limit the fan speeds and trigger points but not going to at 80 degrees).

Other Thoughts: My EVGA 660 still runs like a dream. It's a shame their 970's have been a nightmare.

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-RX 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card - Certified Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Superb when it worked. A significant improvement over the 660gtx it was supposed to replace.

Cons: After the first week it started crashing. Reboots the entire system but won't reinitialize without a 2nd intentional restart of the system.

Other Thoughts: Well let's see what the return process is like.
