Amazing

Genius G-Pen F610 6"x10" Ultra-Slim Tablet Stylish Finish with support on Mac/Win Vista
Genius G-Pen F610 6"x10" Ultra-Slim Tablet Stylish Finish with support on Mac/Win Vista

Pros: Super easy to set up. Very low price. Sensitive and easy to use. I like it. Sleek and beautiful. The pen is soft and sensitive and a good size.

Cons: Theres nothing wrong with this thing at all.

Overall Review: I am a little cautious about leaving things on it though. Don't put pressure on it unless your using it. I've heard bad things and wouldn't want to take the chance of ruining something so nice.

Most Critical Review

Not A Fan

WD My Net N900 HD Dual-Band Router - 7x Ports, 450 + 450 Mbps, 2x USB Ports, Dual-Band, 2.4/5 GHz, FasTrack Plus WDBWVK0000NSL-HESN
WD My Net N900 HD Dual-Band Router - 7x Ports, 450 + 450 Mbps, 2x USB Ports, Dual-Band, 2.4/5 GHz, FasTrack Plus WDBWVK0000NSL-HESN

Pros: Amazing signal strength and an unbeatable strength. WHEN IT WORKS is the key here.

Cons: I have had this router in use for about a month, month and a half, and now it drops connection randomly every hour or so and the only fix is to reset it. I know it's not the modem because when I reset the modem nothing was fixed, however upon resetting the router everything was fixed... for another hour. And on top of this I looked up my warranty status and WD is telling me It expired on 7/26/13. Thats over a month before I bought the system... What?

Overall Review: This isn't neweggs fault, I just wish I could get a refund for a badly deigned unit. I know it's past the newegg return time, so I'm not even asking newegg, I just wish I could at least get a replacement unit from WD, but I don't see that happening. I had high hopes for WD moving out of the HD market, I'm sad to see that those hopes are now officially tarnished.

This product should be a standard for computer builds

Corsair Force MP300 M.2 2280 240GB PCI-Express 3.0 x2, NVME 1.3 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F240GBMP300
Corsair Force MP300 M.2 2280 240GB PCI-Express 3.0 x2, NVME 1.3 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F240GBMP300

Pros: We know SSDs are fast, they're far faster than any hard disk drive can dream of and this chip is no exception. The tradeoff used to be that SSDs were very expensive, but as you can see here, that's no longer the case. For the price alone, this is 100% recommended. Some people put games or software like photoshop or blender on SSDs to speed up their productivity, but if you want to get the most out of this, drop your OS on here. In the past, 60GB of SSD was 120$ and thats just not a comfortable enough space for an OS. Once an OS gets close to maximum on the storage, you'll start to have some real issues. 240GB is plenty of space to load an OS on and the differences will become obvious immediately. Buy a regular hard drive (Or even another one of these) and store all your big games, movies and downloads there but keep the OS here. It'll result in much faster boot times and a much more responsive computer. Drop this in a pre existing computer and it'll feel like you just paid for a brand new desktop.

Cons: I can't think of anything to complain about.

Overall Review: The product is exactly what it's marketed as. An elegant solution to shortening the wait for your computer to do what you told it to. It's fast, cheap, easy to install and saves you time, can you ask for more?

Amazing PUS

CORSAIR RM850x CP-9020156-NA 850 W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply
CORSAIR RM850x CP-9020156-NA 850 W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply

Pros: -Completely silent design. -Saved money on the power bill AND powers my components at the level I need when I need it. -The full modular cabling design allowed me to wire where I needed to in a way I wanted instead of being confined to storing lengthy unused cables in my PC enclosure which is not only ugly but takes up space and lowers the air circulation thereby heating up the PC more and thereby lowering the life of my processor. -It's white and white is the best, period. -Powered a GTX570 NVIDIA graphics card, a motherboard, 16GB RAM, a water cooling system also by corsair as well as an audio card. Still silent.

Cons: Really there are none, its a five star PSU and its worth upgrading to any day.

Overall Review: Worth every penny

Great PSU

CORSAIR CX850M V2 (2017 Edition) CP-9020157-NA 850 W ATX12V v2.4 / EPS12V 2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi-Modular Active PFC Power Supply
CORSAIR CX850M V2 (2017 Edition) CP-9020157-NA 850 W ATX12V v2.4 / EPS12V 2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi-Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: -Easy to install -Quiet operation -Very low heat output -Solid metal enclosure and solid metal mesh around the wiring If it has lasted this long then it wont be failing any time soon in my opinion. I've had it installed for a few months. I have a large motherboard and graphics card as well as a water cooling system and this has powered them all very well.

Cons: As with most PSUs, the cabling is always very short. The want for a nice cabling system in your PC won't be solved with this PSU, especially since it is only semi-modular. Not bad enough to take an egg off though, that's just a design choice.

A Greta Mid-Level Board

GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Having the ability to purchase all of the newest components for the next few years knowing AMD will be supporting the AM4 chipset till 2020 feels great. I just installed 16GB of DDR4 ram, a GTX 1070 GPU and the RYZEN 7 6-core processor and everything runs extremely smoothly. I specifically built this computer for work. I program video games so I need the graphics card to be top of the line for my shader work and the CPU to be well above the average standard use. I have been using the i5-2500 for the last 5 years and this is a massive upgrade. I believe with computers that you should always overbuild as you'll always save in the long run by not having to upgrade for a very long time. I have a water cooler by Corsair hooked up through the motherboard as well and together the team does a good job keeping the air flowing and the heat to a minimum. Should be good for another 5 years. I love all the upgrades to the boards compared to the older designs, I'd definitely recommend this board not just to gamers but to anyone looking to update to a more modern architecture for the future. Faster memory, better heat transfer, better design, great color scheme and TONS of extra functions that help this motherboard go a long way.

Cons: Bad factory BIOS, as everyone says, update it upon delivery.

Overall Review: It isn't stated anywhere whether SLI works or not and nobody really seems to have an answer. I don't have two graphics cards to test it, however I've never actually needed two graphics cards. One 1070 is plenty.
