Fantastic

Silicon Power Touch 835 32GB Waterproof USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP032GBUF2835V1T
Silicon Power Touch 835 32GB Waterproof USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP032GBUF2835V1T

Pros: Tiny Works fine, every time Speed is comparable to other good performers.

Cons: Almost too small as sometimes I have to dig in my pocket to find it :)

Overall Review: I would definitely buy this again, and recommend it. Just be sure to attach your own security chain to it as it is very small.

Most Critical Review

Nice...When it works

Logitech Recertified  981-000257  G930 Gaming Headset with 7.1 Surround Sound
Logitech Recertified 981-000257 G930 Gaming Headset with 7.1 Surround Sound

Pros: -Great sound quality -Very comfortable (fits over my big ears well)

Cons: -Worked a couple of weeks before it will no longer charge -Build quality lacks - very flimsy feel

Overall Review: I ended up liking the quality so much I bought another one brand new and have been lazy in filing an extended warranty repair claim on this refurbished unit. The brand new unit worked well for about three months and now it will not charge either. Now I have two G930 sets that do not work. Luckily I bought the extended protection on this refurbished unit. I would advise you to do the same if you are going to purchase this unit. It really is too bad that these have battery/charging issues. I usually use these for online gaming around two to three nights per week.

Excellent for mid-tier gaming

ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3060 Ti V2 MINI OC Edition 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card DUAL-RTX3060TI-O8G-MINI-V2 (LHR)
ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3060 Ti V2 MINI OC Edition 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card DUAL-RTX3060TI-O8G-MINI-V2 (LHR)

Pros: Easy to install, small form factor, easy on the budget, runs games great

Overall Review: I got this card for a buddy who has been trying to get a non-scalped card for a few months. We installed it and he loves the performance so far. Excellent for mid0tier gaming, and thanks to NewEgg for helping us get the card.

Excellent Looks, Excellent Performance

ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-O8G-WHITE
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-O8G-WHITE

Pros: This card doesn't hesitate with any game I've played. I had to loan it out for a while but got it back and am glad I have it again.

Cons: Availability due to bots and scalpers.

Overall Review: Building systems is not easy in the current market. If you can get your hands on one of these I'd say "Go for it". The card is a beast and looks amazing.I need two more cards for current builds on order. I'll consider myself very lucky if I am able to find this card, as I would get it again if I could.

Quiet, Runs Perfectly

Pros: -Looks Good-Good Warranty-Good Company Reputation

Overall Review: This is a fine power supply for most PCs. I didn't need it when I first bought it as a combo but I used it on the next build. It runs very quietly and I've had no issues at all. I made this build my gaming and desktop machine so I use it every day.

Performs Excellent, Looks Great.

ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-O8G-GAMING
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card ROG-STRIX-RTX3070-O8G-GAMING

Pros: -The initial card I got worked for one evening. The next morning the computer would not boot. We traced it down to the graphics card.-The card looks great, FPS is super high on The Division 2, Valheim, and other games we've played so far.-I upgraded an old 1080 Ti to this so was able to take advantage of the RTX audio drivers as well as the performance gains. Since my son and I both stream, that was important to us.-The card is huge, and the temps run low compared to the old card.

Cons: The only con is that the initial one was faulty and we had to wait on a replacement.

Overall Review: NewEgg support was awesome, even in these troubled times with shortages, they were honest about my options. Luckily, they were able to get me a replacement. As this was a machine being built for someone else, it was important to me to get it running.
