Pros: Ordered 2 kits. Received 4 consecutive serial numbers. Ready to upgrade an old system to Windows 7 and on a strict budget. I was concerned as my Asus m3a79-t deluxe mobo is very picky about RAM. Installed at stock voltage 1.8 but would crash the system within a few minutes. Raised the ddr voltage to 1.9 and all 8gb are now happy running dual channel. I am confident that upgrading a new hard drive with a fresh install of Win7 will go smooth. Thank you GSKILL for making a quality product that runs as advertised within specs.

This review is from: Pioneer SW-8-K 100W Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: On sale 79.99 with promo code Free shipping. Good sound for a bargain subwoofer. I doubt you will find sound this good in a comparable priced sub. Pushes air blasts from the front port felt from 12 ft away. 1st 3 movies, Blues Bros & M.I.B. I & II sounded great. Nice looking if veneer was correct and compact enough you don't have to remove furniture from your room to make a spot for it to reside. I am a musician and audiophile. Once you find the ultimate tuning, this sub reproduces a nice punchy bass guitar and tight kick drum very well.
Cons: Deduct 2 eggs. Multiple instances of quality defect. Poor Quality Control at Pioneer. Mine arrived with the front left corner veneer peeled back revealing the cabinet and leaving a sharp pointy spot. It looks bad, cut my finger. It was packed this way from the factory. I assume it was either a robot or human who didn't care because several went out this way (read other reviews here and other retailers) Either replace your robot with a human or at least pay someone to keep their eyes on the robot. Too expensive to ship so warranty does me no good unless it blows up. I will glue it and hope it stays.
Other Thoughts: Denon AVR-1506. Bose fronts, Sony Center & Surrounds. The only place my system lacks bass is center & surround but this sub works well in a 14'd x 18'w listening area within a 14'x'26 room. If you want to shake your furniture across the room, spend more money and get a big sub. Foor good quality music and rumble, earthquaky sound effects, this is a great value if yours arrives unblemished. Mine is setup against the front TV wall on right side, angled towards my favorite lsitening/viewing position.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Panasonic ES4026CMB Pro-Curve Double Blade Men's Shaver/Trimmer Gift Set
Pros: Inexpensive. Handy ear/nose hair trimmer included. Newegg always provides the best online shopping experience.
Cons: Pop-up trimmer broke after 1 year of ownership. I flipped it open and a piece of plastic dropped out and now the trimmer is perpetually open. Have to hold it shut to shave. Battery life OK I guess, but only got a close shave when fully charged. The wall wart charger is a nuisance. Cheaply made unit. I was satisfied while it lasted. You get what you pay for? We'll see after I upgrade. I may contact Panasonic to see if they offer a replacement.
Other Thoughts: Purchased from newegg about 1 year ago. I came here today shopping for a replacement. I will probably go back to Norelco as I have owned that brand in the past and they have lasted a long time and taken more abuse. I think this Panasonic shaver will work better on thicker/stouter beards. I have a fine beard that grows in multiple directions and rotary seems to work better for me.READ FULL REVIEW
