ENCORE ENEWI-2XN42 Wireless N300 Adapter, 2dBi IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works... sometimes. Sort of.

Cons: Let's start with the drivers. Couldn't install the drivers from the included CD on my new build (Windows 7 x64). The application crashed every time at the same spot. The drivers off the Encore website don't work. Honestly I thought the thing was DOA for a while. Tried it in an old XP 32 bit machine, same exact problem. After quite a few curse words, I hooked it up to my build along with a usb wireless adapter. I connected to the internet with the usb adapter, and thank heavens Windows 7 found an appropriate generic driver. However, I've had it for a few weeks now, and it is starting to lose the connection every few minutes, requiring me to disconnect and reconnect to my network each time. My typically-blazing internet speeds seem slower than normal, and I never know if a page is going to load because it drops the connection so often. I hate to be so blunt but this thing is garbage and has no place in my machine.

Other Thoughts: Unless Encore makes this situation right (hint, hint), I will never buy another Encore product and I suggest that you do the same. You may save yourself ten bucks, but then you might just find yourself in the same boat as me - having paid for this and a more expensive replacement.

MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks great, works, lossless audio is spectacular, USB 3.0 and SATA III

Cons: - Tried a mild overclock using MSI Auto Overclock Genie, and it blue screened. I had to reset all the settings in BIOS, and the computer still wouldn't boot. I then realized that I had to go into BIOS and re-establish my RAID settings. It then booted, but now I'm terrified to overclock with this board.

- Instructions on RAID setup are VERY hard to find.

- Poorly-written English always makes me nervous about the quality of the part... so far no problems yet though.

SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 2333SW High Glossy Black 23
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Absolutely stunning picture, great color variation, dark blacks, bright whites, sleek looking, has actual buttons rather than touch-sensitive

Cons: Blue LED blinks rather brightly when the monitor has no signal, forcing me to turn it off when I sleep rather than just letting the monitor go to sleep.

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor without looking at specs very closely, simply because it was a great deal. I've added it to my desk as a second monitor, next to my 22" AOC 2236vw. I was blown away by the AOC's picture quality and completely satisfied with it, until I put this Samsung next to it. The difference is literally night and day. The picture on this monitor is absolutely magnificent.
