Pros: price, features, namebrand
Cons: the one i bought died after 2.5 years and i need one now so im buying another
Overall Review: built a win7 core i3 machine and it runs like a top
Pros: looks nice, hope they are im stuck with em now
Cons: made me look like an idiot in front of my customer
not mountable ( i really thought it said they had vesa mounting on here when i bought them, maybe i am an idiot)
Overall Review: another reason i got these was it said they had 2 hdmi cables in the specs, they dont.
has newegg changed since they started letting other vendors sell stuff through them?
im noticing a lot of little things that are making my life harder than driving to micro center lately
Pros: setup. just windows and the drivers with an mse link on the desktop. i work for 3 hours to get new hps and dells to this stage
Cons: screen is a little dim but hey...its a 5 dollar computer with a fifty dollar operating system on it
Cons: cant fill out the online rebate form in order to print it..
get done. click submit. and get this:
The information you entered is already in our database.
Pros: I like these for every reason.
Cons: I'm always filling out rebates.
Why do rebates have to be mailed??
I know how to use a scanner.
Overall Review: I've bought like 20 of these.
They are better than the modular ones.
Pros: they work
Cons: they are rarely 20 bucks
Pros: I like it alot.
Bought for and older lady because of the button on top.
It's a nice case all around.
Cons: why does this have a place for a floppy and no place for a 2.5" ssd ????
3.5" side loading drive bay mount cables in the back ???
Overall Review: frontside usb 3.0 works
Pros: It's the cheapest coreI-anything that has Intel HD Graphics 4600.
It's got fairly fast win7 exp. index of 7.3 (vs 7.7 for an i7 3770) at half the price
Cons: Intel HD Graphics 4600 scored 6.6 on the win7 exp. index
vs 6.6 for the i7 3770 with Intel HD Graphics 4000
I kind of expected the Graphics to be better
Overall Review: but hey its kinda on par with the last gen i7 for half the price
Pros: it works,
has default voltage,
fairly fast (in spec)
Cons: it's the slowest thing in a new win7 computer i built for a customer
Pros: I just heard about this patent troll case on security now #432 on twit dot tv. Newegg has always been good to me and I'm glad I can show my support.
Overall Review: If you can't win with Whitfield Diffie on the stand, you may need to find another courtroom. Maybe a class action lawsuit against this guy is the way to go. He got money out of IBM, Microsoft, etc... but Newegg did not fold and I respect that.
Pros: newegg sent me another one to replace the bad one
newegg really has the best customer service of any company i've ever dealt with
Overall Review: i just started the rma process on this thing to see if it was still under warranty and they sent me an email saying a replacement was on it's way.
i can buy with confidence that if i ever have a problem, it will be resolved.
you can't buy the kind of loyalty i have to newegg
Pros: worked great for a while
Cons: i can't afford to put stuff like this in my expensive computer
Pros: everything works great
Cons: had some issue getting frontside audio to work
install the drivers (chipset then video then audio)
even if windows finds them all
Overall Review: I'm starting to like this company. I was a little afraid of them at first, but I've built a dozen or so machines with their boards and they are good quality.
Pros: I just love these.
they are the best 7" tablet in every category
Cons: buttons are hard to find,
maybe a little tall (wide if you use it sideways like me)
Overall Review: just bought a nexus 5 from google and the volume is really low. google did a redesign to fix the problem, but wont take mine back and exchange it. newegg would have supported me in the same situation. google's all talk. newegg is all about customer support and i vote with my money here. thanks newegg.
Pros: their stuff just works.
it's always about as fast as you can get without sacrificing quality.
Pros: they all verified so far
Pros: same specs as the non-modular version (which is a great power supply)
Cons: this is the second one of these i've tried and the power connector does not slide over the pins on both. it's like the pins never go in the holes and the whole thing is spring loaded. you have to really force it to click and that doesn't change if you remove and reinstall it. i imagine they are outsourcing these cables because they do not represent what i have come to think of as corsair quality.
Overall Review: ill stick with the non-modular version of this
Pros: Square register works (although you must plug the device in before running the app, probably an android 4.3 thing square will fix)
It's fast. I just got a galaxy tab 3 7" that i had trouble with, but when it was running right, this nexus is like twice as fast on things like keyboard entry, downloads, and just general responsiveness.
The camera is actually usable and it keeps up when you are moving it. It's no smart phone camera, but it's in the bottom of that class and it's 10 times better than any other tablet camera I've used.
processor speed. It's responsive. I click on an input box and start typing and it's waiting for the next character.
wifi speed. I've seen download speed approach 200 KB/s as opposed to like 60 on my other tablets.
It has a standard usb charging plug (not proprietary)
It has a 4 band headphone jack (mic-in)
The screen is bright and beautiful. but do you need 1080p on a 7" screen???
Battery life. I ran it all night on standby and it had 99% in the morning.
Light flashes when you have notifications. (nice if you miss the sound)
It's got stock google android and it updates fast.
Cons: It's too tall. When you run it sideways, my thumbs don't meet in the middle.
I would like buttons so that the main 3 do no take up screen real estate.
Although the volume seems sufficiently loud for podcasts, I would like the notifications to pierce through a backpack 2 rooms away.
Overall Review: I'm sure I'll have more later, but I just wanted to let people know that it's the best I've tried and it runs square register's credit card reader.
Pros: they are analog
no switching of inputs, just plug em in and they work
they have the 4 band plug and the adapter for 2x 3band
Cons: i dont know if id pay 60 bucks for them
i had a pair of 60 buck plantronics that were better
but for free (with the nexus7 2) or for 30 or 40 they are nice
Overall Review: Go Bucks!
Pros: Built in buttons make the screen larger.
It's the perfect size. (nexus 7 2 is too tall. my thumbs dont meet in the middle)
It has a nice screen (do you need 1080p on a 7" display...)
micro sd card slot (ill miss this the most)
runs square register (really my only requirement)
Cons: its not 150 bucks
camera is useless
it doesnt compete with the nexus 7 2 on speed
I had trouble with mine (it would lock up and say kernel panic upload mode and get hot)
Overall Review: I really liked this tablet, but I had trouble with mine (probably an isolated case) and I tried the nexus 7 2.0 and although there are things I like about this tablet better, the speed of the nexus made this a non-competitor in the two hundred dollar range
Pros: crucial is a pretty reliable brand
2 PCI Express 3.0 x16 vs (x16/0 or x8/x8) on comparable boards by Intel, ASUS, Gagabyte, and ASRock
Realtek ALC892 is a great audio chip (board has coax and optical digital out + 6 analog jacks)
Sound Blaster Cinema
total fan control (of all fans)
oc genie II
killer e2205 networking accelerates gaming traffic over all else
4 dimm slots you can overclock the ram to DDR3 3000
accelerated mouse polling
dsub, dvi, hdmi video outs
frontside usb 3.0
supports 3 way crossfire and 2 way sli
military grade components for longer life and better overclocking stability
Super Ferrite Chokes
It's a good looking motherboard.
Black with red and black heat sinks
A nice low profile red dragon heatsink over the northbridge
black back case cover with red highlights for motherboard plugins
the box even looks good
hdmi vga dvi covers
black case connector cover
nice msi gaming sticker for the case
Basically this board has a lot of extras that make it a little bit faster in several areas
and all that will add up to fragging someone you wouldn't have without them.
compared to motherboards in its price range by Intel, ASUS, Gagabyte, and ASRock
you can overclock the ram to DDR3 3000 vs DDR3 2400 (typically)
I kind of think of motherboards in 2 classes.
$100 motherboards get the job done with nothing special
$300 motherboards have all the bells and whistles
this is in the $300 class with the $100 price
Cons: I installed Vista on it at first because that's all I had laying around.
It doesn't like Vista. (if that's a con :)
Overall Review: To the folks at Newegg: Sorry it took me so long to review this but I had to buy $400 worth of parts to go with it to make a computer out of it and I was waiting for rebates and sales.
Pros: I love these!
Overall Review: built like a tank
Pros: These are the best bang for the buck.
Cons: frontside usb does not seem to push as much power as the rear, but this is common (for some reason)
Overall Review: I have built five computers with these and they pur like a kitten.
I'm not afraid of this brand anymore.
This is a quality board with many features.
Pros: It defaults to the proper speed without fiddling with bios settings.
Overall Review: I've got 5 pairs of this stuff in everything I own.
I had a mix of other ram in my computers and this just ran the best without tweaking
so i moved everything else out and moved this into my 5 personal computers
