Superb Racing Wheel

Logitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel for PS5, PS4 and PC
Logitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel for PS5, PS4 and PC

Pros: Excellent build quality, superv feel of steering wheel and the pedals are the best I have ever felt, worked flawlessly out of the box on PS3 and PS4, I have not tried it on PC yet but considering Logitech started making peripherals for PC and myself owing several Logitech PC products For years without a problem, I don't expect any problems with the G29 working as advertised on PC. This is a product I can recommend easily.

Cons: None as far as quality or workmanship, but me being a***l about every detail I must say, the red dial in the middle of a beautifully crafted black and blue steering wheel looks out of place, it looks like a bumper sticker on a Rolls Royce.

Overall Review: Logitech could improve this product even further by having the symbols on the buttons light up, not the whole button, just the symbols, because the buttons although well placed are hard to find in the dim light of a simulator room. ***********For PS3 owners, please bear in mind that due to platform limitations, the Revolutions Tachometer LED lights and the optional Manual Shifter do NOT work on PS3, this is not Logitech fault so don't blame them, the PS3 is just too old.***********

Pros: Price, very competitive pricing.

Cons: Noisy, this thing sounds like a jet aircraft taking off when it revs up.

Overall Review: You get what you pay for, if you don't mind the noise, it's a great value for $20.

A true Titan

EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN X 12G-P4-2992-KR 12GB SC GAMING, Play 4k with Ease Graphics Card

Pros: Extremely fast, 4K monitors don't even make it sweat, runs cool.

Cons: 1st Con: Bright green 'GeForce GTX' logo, I realize that green is Nvidia's color but at least give us the choice of changing the color of the logo like the GTX 980 Kingpin, nothing else in my build is green and having two Titan X's in SLI is like having two black eyes and no sun glasses to cover it up, for $1200 a card I expected at the very least the logo to be RGB. 2nd Con: NO backplate WTH??? I mean seriously for 1200 beer tokens the manufacturer should have included a backplate, and their reasoning for not including one is that it would restrict airflow for people that do 3-way SLI, well I call that All-American Bull, the percentage of people that do 3-way SLI with $1200 cards is extremely small, and even then, include the cursed backplate, if the customer needs to remove it to increase airflow between the cards, I will happily send them a screw driver if they don't have one. No backplate on this card is inexcusable.

Overall Review: I though of giving this card 4 eggs because of no backplate and the fact that I hate the bright green logo but some people may actually like it, besides, this review is about the performance of the card anyway, so based on performance alone I'm giving it 5 eggs.

It's a monster!!!

DO NOT BUY

Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: I cant see any pros since I can not download the software to install it, so I guess the only pro I see is that my PC still works after pounding on the keyboard in frustration of Microsoft B* that you need to create an account to download the software.

Cons: As another member said "Newegg sends you an email w/ the product key, BUT, then you have to go to Microsoft and create a Microsoft account to download it..." the problem is that this Microsoft Account Signup Page is down, so without being able to create a MS Account, you CAN NOT download the software to enter the Product Key Newegg sends you. P.S. I bought a digital copy because I needed to open some work related stuff that required immediate attention, so much for that.

Overall Review: People, save yourself a lot of headaches and frustration, either order a Media Disk, or drive to Best Buy and get one as I ended up doing (Sorry Newegg, I love you guys, but not today, although I know this is not your fault).
