This review is from: Thrustmaster TFRP T.Flight Rudder Pedals
Pros: - Did not cost much.
- Only affordable pedals I could find
Cons: Ok I get it. I only spent $90 for these I should not expect much.
I use a nice Warthog, TM MFDs and Goflight panels. I really like sims.
I would have loved to get MFGs pedals but the wait and the cost right now are a downside.
Saitek were nearly impossible to find a couple of weeks ago at a reasonable price. (I had these previously)
When I ordered these I did not expect much but it seems very illogical the way these are designed. I am not talking about being so close together (but do not understand why they are). Not talking about how light they are and have to be attached to something. I am talking about the plastic to metal runners the pedals sit on. Yes the 4 metal runners that hint at a little quality until you see/use the plastic slides.
They worked for less than a week before they started to stick. Making any sort of small adjustments like when you Taxi, line up for landing, fly helicopters or any other small movements impossible.
They stick! Why not just add a cheap metal tube or strong Teflon tape? They must have known plastic to metal would never work for long.
The first week I even defended Thrustmaster on a forum saying they were not that bad. Now they have blown my flying experience over and over.
I even tried plastic safe lubricate. Makes no difference. My only hint for those stuck buying these is only put one foot on the pedals at a time. Two feet and they are like an exercise machine. I can not return since I attached them to something and put lube on them.
Shame on you Thrustmaster!! I have bought your products for many, many years (even the Cougar).
Steer clear fellow simmers or you will have a hard time steering at all.
Other Thoughts: Saiteks are available again. Still a big fan of Newegg!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Build well - better than other cheap cases.
Corsair is a great company if you have problems.
Cons: Too bad - I thought this would make a good case for a second computer build. I already have a really nice computer built into the Corsair 800 case.
I went to remove the motherboard so I could make an adjustment but the screw mounts (2) on the case came loose/broke under the board. One broke away from the case the other just broke and spins only - making the motherboard (which is a high end board) unable to be removed from the case.
And I have built a few systems in my day so I know not to tighten motherboards too much.
So even if I wanted to RMA it my motherboard is stuck. Oh well guess it will live in the case forever.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for - or in the case I pay for what I get.
2 thumbs down!
Pros: Wanting to find out what the pros are......
Cons: Man I am having no luck with WD drives. I now sit on 4 drives that have gone bad.
Two 750 Black drives have Uncorrectable Sector Counts.
One in the past was already returned for the same thing.
Both current 750 drives still within Warranty.
One 2 TB Green with Uncorrectable Sector Count.
And now my brand new 1 TB Black has Reallocated Sectors Count.
I have not started the RMA process with WD for the older two 750 blacks and single 2 TB green. Fingers crossed it goes smooth since I bought them here on Newegg and have receipts.
Of coarse NewEgg is replacing the brand new 1TB Black (because NewWgg rocks!!)
WD I hope you are as good at RMA as people say. :)
Other Thoughts: The bad drives will lock up my system. The information about the sectors comes from the SMART monitors.
My system is very nice new top of the line components and power supply.
