NVIDIA Gift - Coupon Code for Gears of War 4
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs GOW4 Simplistic bang, bang, kill beasts, take a short breath here come some more...... etc .... etc.... etc... meh 11/09/2016

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - Coupon Code for Gears of War 4

Pros: It was free with EVGA 1070 SC. It has a simple story line in the campaign. It's nothing special, good graphics The EVGA 1070 SC runs it @ 120FPS or very close on 1080p with out breaking a sweat.

Cons: You have to get it via the Microsoft Store. Beware! Check "Other"

Other Thoughts: This was my first time using the MS store and I had to sign in with an already viable MS account. I did the download. It's HUGE, 80 GB !!!!!!!!! whattttt??!?! It took a while to say the least. The next time I start up the computer I find my user account had been hijacked by the Microsoft Store! The account had been changed to my email name and the password was changed! An hour later I had found the way to change it back to my original user acct. Once I found the way to revert it it was easy but the headache and near panic of possible having to do a reinstall has really made me very mad about the whole thing. The solution is a pretty easy google query because it is not unusual for the win 10 MS store to do that. why why why??

Would I go through all that again just to get this game? No, absolutely not.

Pioneer Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BDR-2209
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It is indeed very quiet. I have a very "quiet" but fast computer in a quiet room in a quiet neighborhood and while burning BD-R and BD-RE it is barely noticeable as it sits 16 inches from my left ear, for real.

Cons: No problems what so ever.

Other Thoughts: It was on sale via Newegg email savings. Be smart and sign up.
Using Imgburn I can burn a BL-R DL with 42.5GB at 4X = 43 min write & 28 min verify. No coasters.
Never burn at top speed! ;-)
BD-RE medium used is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817607057
Having good luck with that brand in BD -R as well.

Steelseries Qck Gaming Mouse Pad (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs 08/12/2015

This review is from: Steelseries Qck Gaming Mouse Pad (Black)

Pros: Coming from a hard mouse pad this is a different feeling but not at all bad or difficult to get used to. It is a smooth and consistent feeling and a good sized pad that I am enjoying. I initially bought this to replace the hard pad when it was not usable any more. The hard pad is still very usable but I am preferring this over it. I replaced the pads on my mouse and movement is silky smooth.

Cons: There is very slight creeping of this pad after playing an hour of Battlefield 3, about 1/4 inch on a smooth glossy painted wood desktop keyboard pullout. Definitely not a demerit.

Other Thoughts: This seems like a quality product. Yes there is a slight smell on first taking it out of the box, that goes away quickly and isn't all that bad to begin with.
I laid it flat over night with nothing pressing down on it and it was 99% flat the next day at noon when I was ready to test it. The side that was the tightest rolled while packaged was the only place that was still raised a very little bit. I reversed rolled that part and i laid down.
I think that most similar complaints are mostly hyperbole.
