Asus GTX670-DC2OG-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 Graphic Card - 980 MHz Core - 2 GB GDDR5 SDRAM - PCI Express 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Card - Good price
Installs easily

Cons: The Asus "Shell game" for rebates is a complete rip-off, just assume the price you pay does not include the rebate. They ask for a mountain of documentation, and if you deviate even slightly (ie, hand writing the label instead of cutting out the one on their form) or submitting the "order details" form from Newegg instead of the identical "invoice" form, it will be rejected - in essence, they will always find some reason to reject it, hoping you will give up. What a disappointment, makes an otherwise great product completely distasteful.

Other Thoughts: I get the whole rebate thing, the intent is to lower the perceived price and count on the laziness of the buyer to allow the company to keep the extra cash. But after carefully filling out all my forms, sending it in, and a month later to hear that "the invoice is not correct" makes me seriously consider my buying strategy from both Asus and Newegg. I love that you have to call India to even talk to the rebate folks, who of course, are powerless to make any decisions or understand the problem.

Thermaltake  V9 BlacX Edition with Docking Station (NewEgg Exclusive)  SECC / Mesh  ATX Mid Tower  Computer Case - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I LOVE the external SATA drive bays on top - not just for hot swapping, but for configuring HD and SSDs prior to install. The USB3 is a nice touch, and there is plenty of cooling options. A bit cramped inside, but still fits my massive Hyper 212 CPU fan/cooler and my long video card - but just barely.

Cons: For a mid towwer, a bit cramped inside. My 230mm fan on top started making noise a month or so after my build. Thermaltake claims to have "the best" return policy, which means if you keep all your receipts, and are willing to endure their "3rd ring of hell" customer support system, you will eventually (at your own mailing expense) get a replacement part.

Other Thoughts: I have SIX internal drives - two SSDs, Two HDDs, and Two Optical drives - They all install and work with plenty of room. The external drive bays take an additional two SATA ports on my Motherboard, but hey, like others have said, the ability to have an External Drive able to be configured like an internal with hot swapping is worth replacing the "short lived and cheap" case fans even if they die prematurely.

NZXT Sentry-2 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great little controller, sparse directions 04/16/2012

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Controls 1-5 fans, nice tech display without being overwhelming. I like being able to decide where to put the thermocouples that monitor temps. Overall good value

Cons: The "directions" are a joke - pretty much plug stuff in and hope it works. It was faster to just figure out how to get it working by trial and error. But once you do, it is a nice controller

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you don't mind getting under the hood and tinkering around (and you probably are if you are shopping NewEgg), then this is a really nice controller that is slightly less than intuitive.
