Pros: Long. High gauge cable. Got it on time and in perfect condition.
Cons: The cable is a little stiff but other than that a great purchase.
Overall Review: I would definitely re-purchase again. I moved my computer further away from my main monitor and this fixed the problem.
Pros: I had an old ide hard drive that I thought had gone out but thought i would give this a go. Glad I did as it was the hard drive enclosure that had gone out. This was simple to use and now I have my old hard drive with the information on it still intact.
Cons: None yet.
Overall Review: This was an inexpensive way to check the integrity of a hard drive. If you're unsure if a hard drive is still working or not this may help.
Pros: Many plugs in different directions so your not always saying "I need one more plug". Long cord.
Cons: I truly wasn't expecting it to be made of plastic, but other than that: no cons.
Overall Review: I has a nice long cord to get to the areas you need it most. Plenty of choices of different angled plugs so you're not blocking much needed plugs. A great product so far, so great that I bought two of them.
Pros: The lighting by far is what attracted me to this memory. Well that and the brand name. I had just bought a new Headphone set by Corsair and am loving those, so I switched the brand that I had on my wishlist to these and I couldn't be happier. The ICUE software recognized these modules and included them in the software for ease of changing the color pattern or what not.
Cons: I have absolutely no cons on this memory.
Overall Review: I would highly recommend this memory for anyone who wants a little light and color in their PC. Latency may not be the best. Speed is pretty good.
Pros: I don't really know what to say about motherboards but I'll try. It had the connections I needed. I usually need an SPDIF (Optical) connector so I can connect to my home stereo, and it had one. The wi-fi is an added benefit. Heatsinks are a nice touch. Ok I'll stop here as I don't really know what I'm talking about when it come to motherboards.
Cons: No cons that I can think of.
Overall Review: It's not low end and it's not high end. It's performing very nicely as it is. I've had no problems with it so far.
Pros: It's the latest Windows.
Cons: Well I had a bit of a problem with this one but I think my situation is unique to only a few people. I bought new components to rebuild my PC and the motherboard required Windows 10. I was using Windows 7. So I bought Windows 10 and installed it. BUT because of the hardware changes I made to the PC I couldn't activate Windows as it wasn't associating this new PC to my Microsoft account. Also I followed the link sent by Newegg and it downloaded Windows 10 Pro not Windows 10 Home Full Retail which is what I bought. I had to talk to Microsoft and let them take control over my PC to correct the problem. It took much longer than it should have.
Overall Review: Windows 10 is fine, but if you've made a lot of changes to your PC then I highly suggest that you skip the middleman (Newegg) and buy it directly from the Microsoft website as that way they have the proof of purchase and it will associate it with your Microsoft account.
Pros: Seems to be good quality. Good length for those that have a monitor that is not close to their PC like me.
Cons: No cons for this one.
Overall Review: I bought a new monitor and it came with a really short DP cable for connection. This took care of that problem.
Pros: Big, clear, fairly fast response time.
Cons: I can't think of any at this time. It has worked optimally since I got it.
Overall Review: This is a great monitor. I went from a 19" hand me down monitor to this and it's great. I stream so this is a second monitor for me. There is no flicker (like my old monitor) and the added space is great for programs that need to be open and seen while streaming. I would definitely recommend this monitor.
Pros: Feels good in the hand. Sturdy construction. Has a charging base to set the toothbrush on. Fast head rotation = clean teeth.
Cons: Only came with one brush head. That's the only thing I can think of.
Overall Review: I like it a lot and would recommend it to someone looking for a toothbrush in this price range.
Pros: Comfortable with a lot of features: thick padding, a foot rest, lumbar support that vibrates, the ability to rock, the ability to raise or lower and the ability to lie flat. Solid construction.
Cons: The set-up was a little confusing until I found the website url for a set-up guide then the set-up went smoothly. As well the arms wobbled but with closer scrutiny I found that they can be tightened, but there was no reference to it in the video.
Overall Review: A great chair. Very Comfortable. Very Sturdy.
Pros: Can't say any pro's as I was not able to set up this service.
Cons: Due to some weird quirk with the AMD program that justifies if you have the correct hardware installed, which didn't work (repeatedly) I am unable to verify that I meet the required needs to get the code for the 3 month subscription.
Overall Review: I can't honestly say yay or nay to this so it is what it is.
Pros: Fast. The Wraith Fan is excellent.
Cons: Had a bit of a hard time installing the fan but other than that there are no cons.
Overall Review: I would totally recommend this CPU. I went from a 6 core AMD FX 6300 to this and there is not a game in my arsenal that I can't play on Ultra settings. It was a little more than what I wanted to spend but well worth the price in the end.
Pros: Large Capacity. Price.
Cons: Loud. Well not really loud but i can hear it a lot more than my last hard drive.
Overall Review: This took the place of my old 500gb drive. I'm very satisfied with what I got. It was inexpensive, quick to install and is working perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to expand space on their PC.
Pros: Fast. Directx 12. Two fans for cooling. Not overly large.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I was upgrading from a 750 GTX so you could have given me a microwave oven and called it a graphics card and it would have been better than what I had. This card allows me to play those newer games that brought my 750 GTX to it's knees.
Pros: Comfortable. Goes all the way around the ears instead of crushing them. Good sound. Mic has good sound from what people tell me. The Mic is bendable to put it in the position you desire. The Lights are great too, if you're into that.
Cons: Can't really think of any.
Overall Review: I use these to stream with and to be honest I don't know why I didn't have a pair sooner. They're comfortable with good sound. They feel solid and well made. If I ever needed another pair of headphones I would not hesitate to buy these again.
Pros: What did I like about the product? The brand name. I've had Ion before and had a great product. Maybe the size.
Cons: Everything I recorded sounds like it's being played on AM radio, no bass whatsoever. I have thousands of records that I'm trying to get on my computer but i keep procrastinating because I don't want my music to sound that bad and it sounds BAD. I highly suggest steering away from their entry level product and spend a little more for a better product.
Overall Review: I do not recommend this product to anyone. I would not buy this model a second time. Is there something i would change about this product? The whole sound system. It sounds like am radio.
Pros: Again the board is visually nice. The direction of the SATA ports is nice, helps keep cables out of the way.
Cons: I did get the board up and running. Found out it may be a PSU problem with the graphics card I was putting in so please disregard the previous review. I am having absolutely no problems with the motherboard any longer. At least I think so.
Overall Review: My power supply unit is 700w, but I found out that is the peak output, sneaky buggars, it actually runs at 550w continuous. Although I've done a few power calculators and that should be enough, I believe that is the culprit in my situation. I would delete my previous review if I new how.
