Delivered Broken1/21/2019 4:14:24 PM

Pros: - Good looking case and liquid cooling is already installed, awesome idea. - Great price for combo

Cons: - Cheap plastic front with 5 of 6 snap tangs that hold the front panel were broken in shipment.

Overall Review: Who's to blame, Fed EX or DeepCool?? I'd say both... Cheap front panel by DeepCool and Fed EX for smashing and ripping about 8'' inches of the box open. Delivery person didn't even ring the door bell, they knew it was busted and did not want to deal with it. I pulled case out of box and like the whole front panel fell off with splinters of plastic pieces bleeding out in front of me. I'm nowhere faint of heart, being a retired disabled veteran with over 20yrs, but I actually had a PTSD / panic attack watching this. I've been to Afghanistan once and Iraq 4 x without ever having a panic attack. Shot at putting up a satcom terminal on a roof, knocked 8-10 feet into a rock garden by a car bomb at the NECK, it felt like a linebacker at full run hit me. (got up mad as hell and wanted to rip someone apart with my bare hands, was not scared) I've seen some bad things and had worst things done to me and never had a panic attack. You never know what will make a person click, but having over $1600 dollars worth of computer parts waiting for a case to upgrade to a Mega Gaming rig and watching it crumble in front of me was mine... Put in for a refund, could not have that happen again. ha, ha , & (LOL for those other types)

Great drive, very fast.11/14/2015 1:34:25 PM

Pros: - Price was great - Works great! Alot faster than a regular HD. Windows boots over 2x faster and shuts down in a fraction of time the with reg HD. - Game loading screens in Witcher3 2-3x faster - AWESOME... Well worth the money - 2x capacity of my last SSD... - Loaded Windows and my programs in record time compared to reg HD

Cons: When the SSD was installed the Boot Loader is missing! Have to press F12 at startup then select the drive to boot from it. Not really a con for me, for some reason I like it this way... Keeps my snooping wife out of my computer now, ha, ha... Woman downloads more viruses than i can count!!! Also after format only 460gig. Why lose 40GIG??

Overall Review: I had a 240g Corsair SSD from 2003 and it ran great for about 2 1/2 months then crashed. Got mad and threw it in my desk drawer til last month and tried it again. After playing Witcher 3 for 1 1/2 weeks it crashed again (lost everything again). That was a common problem with SSD's from three years ago. Decided not to give up on the tech, that by now they have to be making better products and purchased this drive on sale (almost $40 less than another Corsair). I have been using the drive for almost two weeks and Witcher3 has not blown it out yet. Also, Corsair said their was 20 days left on my warranty and they will send me a new SSD. I'l put that one in my wife's computer, then maybe she will stop complaining about her windows being slow. It is a WIN-WIN...

Manufacturer Response:
Todd T.: Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 850 EVO SSD. Samsung is committed to providing the best possible product experience, quality, and value, and we are always here to help with any of your questions or concerns. Regarding your Boot Loader concern, this is not an SSD issue. You need to change your boot priority in the BIOS to always boot from the SSD. In order to do this properly, you would have to either read through your BIOS manual to change boot priority or contact your motherboard manufacturer or system manufacturer. As for the 40GB that appear to be lost, please know that Samsung drives and memory cards adhere to the IDEMA standard of advanced formatting, which will result in the drive/card appearing as less than the listed size. The amount of space that appears to be "missing" is in fact used by the drive/card for storing firmware, metadata and spare blocks. Your operating system (Windows, Linux, etc.) will also affect the usable space -- different operating systems will use different amounts of space to store their metadata. Consequently, formatted space will always be less than unformatted space. You can look IDEMA up online for more technical details about this standard, which is established by The International Disk Drive Equipment and Materials Association For additional questions or concerns, please contact Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG and a representative will gladly help you. To reach Memory Product Support, please enter the following in order after each of the phone prompts: 1 for Consumer 4 for Office Products 6 for Memory Products 1 for SSD Support hours are from 9AM to 9PM EST, Monday through Friday.

Bad Packing Problem11/14/2015 12:31:14 PM

Pros: Price was great Worked great! It can really take a beating...

Cons: Poor packing, I have been a New Egg customer for over nine years and have never had bad packing for a product til now. The box was over-sized (3-6 inches all sides) with only some brown paper on the left side (no bubble wrap or peanuts). The UPS would slide around the inside the box like crazy when I picked it up. The box was crushed on the bottom right corner. The corner was crushed in almost three inches. Opened the box and the UPS box was also crushed in almost 2 1/2 inches. Opened the UPS box and the foam protection around the bottom back of the UPS was totally broken across.

Overall Review: I can not believe it still works after that kind of fall and damage. Glad I purchased the 2yr extended warranty just in-case this thing starts messing up later on. Only regret was not getting the 1500va. This one runs at 33% load with my system running which is good, but once i start playing Witcher 3 it jumps up pass 55% load.

Great Antenna11/7/2015 10:11:05 AM

Pros: Great Reception Easy to put together everything included to setup Power box/ amplifier 2 TV outputs

Cons: Figuring out the best way to get it outside. Getting 23 TV chan and 2 FM with the antenna inside the room, may not put it outside (just a guest room).

Overall Review: I tested it on the room with the TV before mounting outside. Received 23 TV chan and 2 FM with the antenna not even outside. Customer service was great. I contacted them several times with questions and they were courteous/ helped every time.

Ok Upgrade for me11/2/2015 11:26:22 AM

Pros: Graphics settings maxed out on all of the games Silent, more quiet than the card upgraded from

Cons: Upgraded from a Asus GTX660 TI-DC2OC-3GD5 - 3 GB GDDR5 and did not see that much of a difference for a $320 upgrade. You would think 3 generations and a series higher would do more... Also, did not run with my 6 & 8 pin PCI connectors from my COOLMAX ZP-850B 850W. I had to use their cables to power it. The 6 pin had to be powered with 2 (molar ? white) connectors and the 8 pin with 2 six pin pci connectors from my power supply. This is the only way it would run.

Overall Review: I have a computer with a 660TI 3GIG and another with a reg 660 2GIG (my wife's). This card definitely beats the reg 660 2GIG hands down. (w/Witcher 3) If i were upgrading from reg 660 2GIG , I would be like "WOW, whoohoo!! awesome card". Sorry, as a retired disabled vet, on his computer a lot because that is the only thing that does not hurt to do, I do not have funds to upgrade all the time. So for over $300, I would like to have seen more improvement than 10-15% I know it is not the companies fault I did not realize how powerful the 660TI was so they still get 4 eggs. 1 egg off for the power issues.

Not liking the OEM/ 16GIG limit rules11/2/2015 9:52:32 AM

Pros: It is not Win 8 or 10. Does not turn my computer into a apps tablet Not as much adware or spyware included

Cons: I didn't know this but do to licensing issues Windows 7 home Edition 64 OEM edition is limited to recognizing only 16 gigs of ram. Had to rebuy Win 7 Pro to use more than 16 gigs of ram. Also, upgraded my motherboard and hard drive and can not reload this product. you can only load it once or not able to upgrade major components???

Overall Review: Had to purchase Win 7 Pro RETAIL version to get pass all this corp money grab mess. Really, there is no reason to limit it to 16GIGs, but to make people have to re-buy the product...

Worked great til add more RAM11/2/2015 9:27:28 AM

Pros: Worked great

Cons: Had two 8GIG sticks of G.SKILL F3-1866C9D-16GSR and ran great at 1866Mhz Added two more sticks for a total of 4 for 32gigs, but will not boot with a XMP profile for 1866 speed. The 4 sticks together only run at 1333Mhz.

Overall Review: Is it really worth adding more run to run at such a lower speed? Added more ram to use AMD RamDrive 64GIG program.

Runs great as a pair/ not as a quad11/2/2015 9:08:10 AM

Pros: Had two of these sticks and ran great at 1866Mhz

Cons: Added two more sticks for a total of 4 for 32gigs, but will not boot to windows with a XMP profile for 1866 speed. The 4 sticks together only run at 1333Mhz. May be a board problem- GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+

Overall Review: Added more ram to use the AMD RamDrive 64GIG program purchased. 32GIG allowed to make 28GIG ramdrive, but Witcher 3 and other games are over 30GIGs. Kind of a waste of time and money. Just purchased 850 EVO SSD 500GIG, that should work as a replacement to the ramdrive plan

Manufacturer Response:
. Hi Todd Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear this memory kit has been working well in your high performance AMD build. This is a 16GB kit of DDR3-1866, so that is exactly what they are designed and tested to operate as. By adding another kit, the rated specifications are no longer guaranteed. XMP will not work because it is for 16GB, not 32GB. Also, AMD CPUs natively support one DIMM per channel, so additional tweaks are necessary to force full slots to possibly work at DDR3-1866. If you would like help with this or have any questions, please feel free to let us know. The G.Skill support team will make sure G.Skill RAM is operating at maximum performance in your computer. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities. Tech Support Email: ustech@gskillusa.com RMA Dept Email: rma@gskillusa.com G.Skill Forum: http://www.gskill.us/forum/

Treasures of the Sun is a good expansion pack2/28/2014 7:44:20 AM

Pros: It adds a lot to the game itself and it improves the game not just the DLC.

Cons: None so far with the DLC. The game itself??? It is a little rough without this DLC

Overall Review: The new Essence system makes the game way more fun to play. Essence is an item that you can use to enchant any piece of equipment.

Great Price w/ promo code2/27/2014 3:39:50 PM

Pros: "+ 50% off w/ promo code EMCPHHE93 on about 40 games... Nice graphics and story line

Cons: Steam download game... Have not been tricked into buying a steam game in four years. Ad did not say it would be from steam. Normally they put in the requirements (Steam game) Not wild about the down looking camera angle, much rather FP Shooter direct on view. Can not see far enough in front of you. Witcher 1 &2, Dragonage, Hellgate have better view angles

Overall Review: "+ 50% off w/ promo code EMCPHHE93 on about 40 games... but used this code to buy the full version game, then could not use it again to buy the addon. Who puts the same code on 40 games that you can only use once and does not put a note saying so... Would have bought a more expensive game if known or have bought them together.

Great RAM1/24/2014 8:12:03 PM

Cons: None yet

Easy to install12/12/2012 7:31:41 PM

Pros: Fast and no problems

Cons: A little hard to get the USB cable into it.

Overall Review: Installed a WD Scorpio Blue 320GB SATA 3.0Gb/s in it with no issues. Getting in a Corsair Force Series 3 2.5" 240GB in a couple of days, will try it also.

640GB WD drive will not work in this enclosure12/24/2009 11:48:14 PM

Pros: Very thin, USB powered, and sturdy metal case

Cons: Enclosure does not work with 640GB WD drive purchased. (from Vantec webpage) Hard drive capacity is 500 GB not 640 GB advertized by Newegg. Also, drive does not screw into the case, only held in by the SATA connection

Overall Review: One of the Christmas presents for my wife, not good... My mistake by not reading a couple more reviews. I have made quite a few purchases with Newegg and this is the first time to be steered wrong. When I purchased the drive, this enclosure popped up as the item to go with it...
