Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs What more can I say 04/13/2014

This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: I've used this product for over 6 years in many builds. It has never let me down. Whatever your cooling solution may be, it's only as good as good as the thermal coupling allows. In my experience this product not only delivers on day one, it continues to deliver year after year.

Cons: None.

Razer Nostromo PC Gaming Keypad

3 out of 5 eggs Driver issues 02/12/2011

This review is from: Razer Nostromo PC Gaming Keypad

Pros: Fairly solid and well built, though the thumb stick could be much more precise and responsive is not up to the caliber of even an X-Box controller much less a higher end joystick or the thumb control on a laptop such as a Think Pad or similar.

Cons: You MUST specifically authorize the Configurator software to run in Administrator mode or this thing will probably drive you nuts.

If run from a User account (as you should be running your system for anything but maintenance), it will NOT be able to reconfigure the key assignments and very well may not even recognize that the unit is plugged in. The unit's default key assignments will however function regardless. I must presume that they are hardwired to the unit and that the purpose of the software is to translate them to alternate key sets. Per documentation, user assignments are stored on the computer, and presumably beyond the access level of the software in User mode.

I spent hours installing, reinstalling, trouble-shooting, and finally figured it out. Considering that this is only the second driver-type device that I have ever found with this kind of behavior, I was greatly underwhelmed...Come on, everyone else has figured it out.

Other Thoughts: It is possible that the 32-bit versions of Windows will behave in User mode as the security paradigm is a bit more relaxed.

My rationale for 3-eggs is as follows: 1) the joystick is pretty sloppy for a high-end gaming device and I can think of dozens of units with better components 2) while not a deal breaker, the driver software could be more User friendly AND the documentation could point this issue out assuming that they do not just fix it instead.
