Pros: Great specs for the pricetag on a gaming series laptop. The 765M has really no trouble plowing through most of the games my GF throw at it. Very good weight with decent color. Pretty much what I expected it to be.
Cons: Two months into ownership now and it suddenly caught the plague. Slowed down to a crawl, games lagged, internet lagged, everything lagged. Turned out it was using 80% memory while idle. The curse of the memory leak on Windows 8.1. Made the laptop pretty much a 1000 dollar paperweight. Decided to just format with Windows 7 and it literally took me 4 hours to find all the drivers. Fangbook, CyberpowerPC and HX6-110 all returned me with no useful information when I searched Google for drivers. The only thing I could find were product reviews, go figure. After a TON of digging through forums, I finally came across a post of someone having the exact same issue with the HX7 series. They were pointed at a laptop from MSI that has the exact same specs with, surprise, driver listings. So why I had to go download MSI drivers for this PC, I don't know. Maybe MSI owns them. Either way it should NOT have been THAT much of a hassle to find drivers for this laptop.
Other Thoughts: Had Windows 8 not been such a bad OS, I would have 5 egg'd this. Newegg, as usual, is amazing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
Pros: The Phanteks 140mm UFB CPU Cooler was fairly easy to install, with some help from YouTube, and runs much more quiet than I had expected it would. With the dual 140mm fans on the split heatsink body, my CPU never rises to dangerous levels, even at full load. Now I'm running an Intel i5 K series, but it's not overclocked at all. The multitude of colors that were availble was exceptionally nice due to the black/white configuration of my build. Made it quite easy for me to find exactly what I was looking for.
Cons: The ONLY thing I could find wrong with this CPU cooler was the fact that one of the fans started to make a noticeable rattling sound while mounted to the heatsink, due from what I assume was the fan clipping one of the fins of the heatsink. I fixed the issue by ripping off a piece of paper and adding just a little more space between the fan and the heatsink. Now it may rattle for about a second after I start it up, but it goes back to being quiet pretty quick. Nothing bad enough to deduct an egg.
Other Thoughts: I was initially worried about fitting this in with my build due to the size. But it fits like a glove with my Corsair Carbide 500r with low profile gaming RAM. No worries if you're building the same thing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Z623 200 w 2.1 Speaker System, THX-Certified
Pros: Firstly, let me say newegg outdid themselves on the shipping. Free shipping that got here in 2 days? Heck yeah.
Actually onto the product, the speakers are very sharp and cosmetically appealing, which is always a plus for being hardware. The sound range is gorgeous on the two satellites, with the sub having a nice deep powerful rumble. Half way up and it shakes my house. Very happy with the purchase!
Cons: No cons.
Other Thoughts: It has the capability to expand into a 5.1 system as well I believe.READ FULL REVIEW
