Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro, stream and record in 1080p60, superior low latency technology, H.264 hardware encoding, PCIe
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Streams without taxing your processor. Nice way to avoid upgrading to i7 or an entire separate computer for hi def streaming of pc games as well as its main purpose of streaming console games.

Cons: - Who knows what is wrong with it? It has intermittent issues creating white noise on the game stream. Almost a week later and Elgato is still saying "we'll get back to you in 3 days."

Getting back to people every three days saying you'll get back to them in three days is not getting back to someone in three days.

This could easily be a Windows 10 problem, but Elgato doesn't care enough to support its product to the point that you can know what is going on. And of course neither does Microsoft.

1 out of 5 eggs Not Keen on the Mic 04/08/2014

This review is from: SENNHEISER PC 310 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Headset

Pros: Wonderful sound. Comfy. Does not make my ears hurt even with long wear.

Cons: The mic boom is worthless. It is simply not long enough to get the mic to the proper position in front of my mouth. If I take the left earphone off of my ear, I can get the mic positioned and it works fine.

In the process of experimenting with some sort of work around, the mic boom BROKE at the end.

I bought this thing SPECIFICALLY to be able to talk in video games. It is has been a complete fail in this regard, and while they will be nice as a stand in until I get another pair, the simple fact is I might just as well have set $50 on fire.

Other Thoughts: I just can't imagine why the mic boom is this short. My head is by no means large. I would say I have very nearly the perfectly average sized head for hats, etc. I have had jobs aplenty where I had a mic boom that worked perfectly fine. It is a real blight on a product that would otherwise have gotten a 4 or 5 from me.

Lesson? I really hate being sold on something that nearly but doesn't quite do what it is supposed to.

Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Titanium Grey Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

5 out of 5 eggs My Favorite Purchase So Far 01/28/2014

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Titanium Grey Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Much space. Cable routing built right in. Nice looking. Insulated against noise. Wildly expandable and up-gradable.

Cons: I might have preferred the adjustable internal disk rack to turn so that the power and SATA sockets faced the back instead of the front, but I do not yet have them all filled up and perhaps that would pose a problem if it were so.

Other Thoughts: I just built my first computer since 1996. This case made the chore about as little of a chore as it is possible for such a chore to be. Plus it runs so quietly, and looks so clean and elegant. I really just love this case. I anticipate it being my case for years.
