Pros: 1st Make sure you connect the tv to the internet (even if you have zero plans to use the apps) so it can update the firmware.
2nd Research freight companies in your area and find the least expensive one. You have weeks left to return it so speed is not an issue.
3rd Return it This is the risk with recertified/reconditioned items.
I have purchased 3 Vizio TVs from Newegg and all have been flawless...but even with new items, bad luck happens.
4th Expect no response from Vizio or Newegg in the comment section for recert/recon products.
Cons: Sorry mate, I hope the firmware fixes your issue but I do not think it will...worth trying however!
Good Luck ;-)
Pros: In my review below, I forgot to mention the updates from Vizio.
Let your TV connect to the internet for a brief time after you buy it.
Even if you have no plans to use the apps or web features.
Allowing the TV to connect to the internet will auto download and install the newest software (Dec 19, 2012) ((at time of this post)) for your product.
Mine came with with (B) installed.
Upgraded to (E).
Or something close to that...in short, it needed the update.
Cons: Pairing with the remote was problematic with the shipped firmware but workable at the first start-up screen.
Pairing post setup (and update) was a breeze.
Not a con really, just a fyi
Overall Review: I love this tv.
Gaming, TV, Movies...all good.
It will look amazing.
and for 750 usd...;-)
Works up to the speeds listed.
Have had no negative issues so far.
Overall Review: $13.99 Shell Shocker.
Love ya New Egg!
Pros: Great sticks of ram for the cost.
Runs exactly as advertised.
AsRock Extreme4 Gen 3 mobo accepted ram,voltage and timings automatically.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Wish I had bought another 8 gigs when I got these.
Pros: Size, price, noise, temps & performance are all superb.
Works just like it should.
Cons: so far...none!
Overall Review: For people somewhat new to installing bare drives, you will need to format this drive before it will show up.
Ctrl panel=> System=> Admin Tools=> Comp Mgt=> Disk Mgt Then locate drive at bottom, pick a letter for it (ie. F or G etc) and format it :P
Takes 20 seconds and is far better than paying for an RMA.
Hope this helps and enjoy your new HDD!
(directions are for Win7 but should be about the same for older OS. If not then Google is your friend; search "format bare drive XP or Vista")
Pros: Got it free.
I tested it and it works well.
Buttons have a decent "feel" to them.
Could be a little on the small side, pro or con, kinda depends on the user.
Overall Review: I'm saving it for when my primary mouse dies, I will have a temporary back-up.
Pros: two hundred dvd-r for $29 and free shipping!
Only the top disk was damaged.
The other 199 disks burned without error.
Overall Review: Will buy again if they go on sale.
Pros: Fast, wonderful, sexy.
Overclocked @ 4.8 ghz with 65c max load temps.
1.35 max voltage.
Overall Review: I wish all products could impress me as much as the i5 2500K.
Pros: Simple to install.
Works beyond expectations under load.
i5 2500K overclocked @ 4.8 and temps stay below 65c after running twelve hours of non-stop benchmarking.
Space saver. I can see my mobo and access my ram with ease!
Overall Review: Fits like a glove in the bottom of my Antec Lanboy Air with
3 other locations I could have installed the H100.
I love this product!
Pros: Feature rich. Gen 3. Ivy Bridge ready. Looks great. Fair price point. Bios makes overclocking fast and easy.
Cons: Mobo will not detect my ram in dual channel slots.
Ram checks-out on Memtest.
Single slots work fine.
I get an instant Dr Debug error #45 the second I power up the system if sticks are seated in any of the dual channel slots.
Sent Asrock support an email. Waiting...
Overall Review: Love the board just disappointed over my ram issue.
If I can fix that. 5/5 eggs.
I'm hoping to hear back from Asrock soon!
Pros: I was able to overclock the gpu @ 980 mhz
Shader clock @ 2,000 mhz
Memory clock @ 4,100 mhz
Change the value of:
"VolChipType"=5 to 4 using OC Guru.
Voltage is now between 1.25 V
GPU clock can be set at more than 1GHz.
Ensure stability in 3DMark11.
Cons: None but others trying to SLI this series can have major issues. If your mobo has the pci-e slots next to one another the top card will overheat due to a design flaw with Windforce x3. If your mobo has another slot separating two of the pic-e slots then you will have no issues getting SLI to work when using two of these cards.
Overall Review: I did not love the OC Guru software but MSI's KOMBUSTOR plus other companies overclocking software works great with this card. Take your pick or play with them all.
Pros: Read and write speeds perform as stated.
This was my 1st ssd and I am born again!
I was blind but now I see...the need for speed.
OS load times after post are insane. Encoding blu-ray vids is a dream.
Cons: Price vs storage capacity
meh It's newish so expected
Overall Review: I'm so pleased with this product. I just ordered a second one and plan to setup a raid2
Pros: Modular. Fun. Cold.
My HDDs are 25°f cooler using this case with the included default fans. I have no problems with the rubber bungee method. It's not noisy at all. Looks great.
Cable management was not an issue after a small amount of planning. Toolbox is handy. Glad I went w/ red led, just right brightness for low lighting.
Cons: The plastic doors...when attached, they are rock solid. When removing and attaching, I do notice they are made of plastic but the case is very light weight.
Even being plastic they are strong. You would need to jump on top of or slam against a wall to break. Heavy regular use will not break this product.
Overall Review: I'm having a blast with this case! I have switched my psu mount from bottom to top mount. Fans for graphics card are perfect. Fits the corsair liquid cooling (H100) like a glove.
My many HDDs were running around 100°f in my old Antec case, now they are a frosty 83°f in the Lanboy.
I made homemade air filters out of black stockings.
Ask her before cutting up her black stockings.
Pros: Almost fully modular. Included modular cables cover all current/future needs. Cable sheathing is durable and attractive. The PSU looks, feels and performs like a top-end quality product should. Packaging was nice. All self testing confirms the specs claimed by manufacturer.
Cons: None. It was not free but with the Shell Shocker deal I got; it almost was!
Overall Review: I received the psu 72 hours after purchase and shipping was free.
I love the Egg!
