Most Favorable Review

Used for usb MIDI triggering with Alesis electronic drumset.

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1 PCIe Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1 PCIe Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp

Pros: Punchy sound, latency free triggering for Addictive Drums 2

Cons: There's a little bit to figure out and to fine tune using ASIO drivers.

Overall Review: This card is completely compatible with ASIO drivers but you have to turn off some features like CSSD 3D sound. I only use 2.0 output straight to a 1200 WATT dual speaker, mono PA system. My drums sound way more authentic and extremely powerful. Best soundcard I've purchased since 1999 when I bought a Sound Blaster PCI-16. Just get the right driver through Creative's site for Win10, work with ASIO through input and MIDI settings and find that sweet spot in the sampling list. Perfect card for this type of use if you want an improvement in sound quality over on board sound.

The more I use it, the more I LOVE IT!!!

MSI MAG ARTYMIS 324CP 32" (31.5" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 165 Hz HDMI, DisplayPort, USB, Audio FreeSync Premium (AMD Adaptive Sync) Curved Gaming Monitor
MSI MAG ARTYMIS 324CP 32" (31.5" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 165 Hz HDMI, DisplayPort, USB, Audio FreeSync Premium (AMD Adaptive Sync) Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros: -GORGEOUS, deep, rich color gamut -TRUE 165Hz that rocks FH5 -STURDY, Adjustable stand that feels and weighs like it has a hydraulic assist and can easily survive four armageddons -IMMERSIVE, curved panel that feels like gaming on 1/3rd of a planetarium

Cons: -Is not HDR "certified" ...BUT ( see pic #3 and explanation below) -No built-in audio (just an FYI. I had already known this) -With 32" of diagonal real estate on a 1080p display, pixel pitch might be a little chunky for ppl that prefer their faces pressed against the panel

Overall Review: I might be a little over ambitious with this review coming from a non-gaming, 25" 60Hz 1080p display that struggled to "OC" to 75Hz and never really witnessing a 1440p or 4K gaming display for myself, I am in heaven with this beautiful giant. Now that I have owned it for over two months you'd think the novelty would be subsiding by now. Alas, there is always another surprise. I've seen what HDR does on my 72" 4K TV and was a little disappointed when at first, I could not utilize it with this display. This particular model is not HDR "certified", but it is HDR "ready" according to specs. Choosing the HDR option within game options menu led to it being "not available". By accident I was going through some of the feature menus on Win 11 and stumbled upon an option to enable HDR. Thought I'd have the same non-result when all of a sudden my display looked 3x better than before and my jaw dropped. The native Free-Sync feature within these displays was the previous occurrence that I found delightfully shocking. YES , these are very much HDR capable depending on your GPU. The week before I had retired an MSI GTX 970 4G for a nice, overpriced MSI GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X mid-tier GPU. I am proud to say my instincts led me to a duo conceived in Heaven. This display is gorgeous, oozes quality in buckets and has the potential to be a serious E-sports display. I'm a private pilot with an expired medical certificate and the way this thing runs MSFS 2020, let's just say it has mostly satisfied my urge to splurge on the medical re-cert and occasional $100.00 hamburger (Renting a Cessna and going to a Fly-In cafe) and just in time for exorbitant 100LL fuel prices and upset economy. I love my rig! Highly Recommended and planning on getting two more before they discontinue them. No RGB on it and it still looks amazing donning the piano black MSI Shield etching among the mostly matte finish on the back and a dark mirrored MSI logo up front, albeit it might be a tad slower than those with RGB. LOL! ( Inside joke implied)

Pros: Specialty unit mainly used for aux gpu cooling or very strange push/pull setups...BUT!

Cons: Why in the world would three companies that I know of that produce these not change the actual direction on them? If they did, then push/pull setups would actually have a purpose. Use to use contra-rotating 10mm Global Wins for our custom CPU coolers in the mid 90s and they provided very effective cooling as opposed to today's redundant method of stacking two fans together of the same rotational direction. No acceleration occurs takes place like this. The RGB is a little off in shading and timing.

Overall Review: These photos taken back about two years ago. Great unit, watch the RGB wire that crimps at the pin block and no more RGB. Then computee slo down!

Pros: Cheapest upgrade ever found. Genuine CRUCIAL RAM.

Cons: You're going to be waiting on thiis one. No fault of the shipper whom kept in very good contact with me. Over 2 months to get mine in WV. It's US customs quarantining packages for a while or they are just over loaded with Chinese shipments that have to be unpackaged and repackaged...good ole Covid.

Overall Review: You can't go wrong.

Hard to rate since I havent received yet

I'm not going to blame this on New Egg, but on Covid 19 and I think my USPS carrier. Nothing I order that originates in China aeems to get to me. Great Price on RAM and seller was at least courteous enough to tell me I have to wait a little longer, but it's been over a month and no RAM.
