Logitech MK550 K920-002555X Black USB RF Wireless Wave Combo (K350 + M510)

4 out of 5 eggs Refurbished? More like Used. 07/02/2014

This review is from: Logitech MK550 K920-002555X Black USB RF Wireless Wave Combo (K350 + M510)

Pros: Good quality keyboard & mouse. Wave design on keyboard is not too drastic & easy to adapt to if you're coming from a standard keyboard. Everything appears to be in perfect working condition. Comes with a USB extension cable.

Cons: Newegg is the second retailer I've bought a refurbished Logitech KB/mouse combo from. In both cases, the hardware I've received is most certainly *used*. There is visible dust between the keyboard keys (the one I got from the other retailer actually appeared to have something spilled in it -- luckily not the case with the one I got from Newegg). The pads on the bottom of the mouse also have definite signs of wear. No batteries, software, or documentation are included, and all of the serial numbers are blacked out.

Other Thoughts: My purchase was direct through Newegg, and not a 3rd party Marketplace vendor. It appears that Logitech's "refurbishing" process for keyboards & mice is really just a cursory check for functionality and a quick cleaning.

ASUS Radeon HD 7790 HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Cool, quiet & fast. Markedly improved frame rates in games over the HD4670 it replaced. Skyrim on Ultra with everything enabled is silky, silky smooth. Great video & sound over HDMI on Windows 7 Media Center.

Cons: Even after using Display Driver Uninstaller to wipe my old video drivers (in Safe Mode), the 11/15/13 drivers on Asus' website didn't install correctly. Almost all of the settings were missing in Catalyst Control Center, which meant I couldn't adjust the overscan and there was a thick black border around all video output to my HDTV.

However, simply installing the latest 12/18/13 (v13.12) drivers from AMD's website on top of the Asus drivers fixed everything for me.

Other Thoughts: Working just fine on an older Core2 HTPC which I occasionally use for Steam Big Picture gaming. Not overclocking anything (didn't even install the Asus GPU Tweak software), since I want to keep everything running cool & quiet.

CTA Triple Port Charging Station for PlayStation Move Controllers & Sixaxis Controller
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Can charge two Move controllers and one Dualshock, all at the same time. Uses an AC adapter, so you can charge while your PS3 is powered down. Build quality is actually halfway decent.

Cons: Huge, bright, retina-searing light rings around the Move charging ports are ALWAYS on, even if nothing is charging. Shines blue if a fully-charged controller is plugged in, or if no controller at all is plugged in. Shines red when charging.

Also, the contact points for the charger aren't terribly reliable. On my unit, the left-side Move slot doesn't charge unless I tilt the controller forward about 10°.
