This review is from: Verbatim 25GB 6X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model 98397
Pros: Great discs. Verbatim is usually best. Burned about 20 discs with no problems on a Pioneer 2209.
Other Thoughts: It looked like this item was on sale for cheap last week. It also looked like it came with a free gift card, which I did not care for. The item was on sale, but not that much less because I was charged 20 bucks for the Shutterfly gift card. Newegg should stop cramming the junk "promotions" and concentrate on good customer service, which is what they started with years ago.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: small, wall mountable, large grid for air cooling, long power cord.
Cons: blue lights are too bright AND they shine out the air cooling grid.
Other Thoughts: I have no idea how well this could work because I don't want to pay for time warner for a better plan. I already pay $60+ per month for standard Internet from time warner. I was getting 16/1 Mbps with my 12 year old SB5101. With this SB6141 I get the exact same speed. I hoped I would get the advertised 20Mbps speed but no, not with time warner San Diego. A few years ago I had the $12 per month speed boost, where you get about 24Mbps for the first 7 seconds of downloading, so I know they could give me better speeds if they wanted, but I do not download for 7 seconds. I upgraded because I want faster Internet if time warner ever increases standard speeds, like most other cable companies already have. I also like to have a backup and my trusty SB5101 is waiting for this new arris modem to die, but the SB5101 is not wall mountable (take apart and drill holes in the case).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NEC Display MultiSync EA224WMi-BK Black 22” Widescreen IPS Panel, LED Backlight LCD Monitor 6ms 250cd/m2, DisplayPort, USB hub, Height Adjust, Pivot, Tilt & Swivel, Speakers, 3 Year Warranty
Pros: I do not own this monitor. I own other NEC monitors and they are awesome, so that's why I gave 5 eggs.
Cons: The response time specs do not match the NEC website, nor the NEC spec sheet (PDF) for this monitor.
Other Thoughts: This monitor, EA224WMi, is specified on the NEC web site as having a 14ms response time even though Newegg has it at 5ms. If anyone purchased this from Newegg can you please confirm that it is 5ms? I really want to buy it, but only if the response time is 5ms.READ FULL REVIEW
