PowerColor Go! Green Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 AX5450 1GBK3-SHEV4 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card (UEFI Ready)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: none, card did not function

Cons: Card did not work in two different motherboards. In one computer (the computer it was purchased for), the computer wouldn't even POST with this card installed.

In Motherboard #2, it works on the first boot, but on a second warm-reboot of the system it freezes on POST with a distorted image.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, due to illness and a busy work schedule, I wasn't able to test this card until today, which is a couple days outside of the Newegg return period. I'll be making some calls, but I have a bad feeling I'm going to be out of the money for this card :(

FSP Group NB V65 Universal Notebook AC Adapter

4 out of 5 eggs Decent adapter, just be careful to get the right one 11/22/2010

This review is from: FSP Group NB V65 Universal Notebook AC Adapter

Pros: Works decently enough, on the couple laptops I've used it on. No noticeable flaws or performance issues. The tips only fit in a single way, so it makes a good replacement for somebody that doesn't know what "polarity" means.

Cons: This adapter does not have the standard big, black Dell power tip, and the way the page information is laid out on Newegg's website makes this omission easy to overlook.

From what I gathered, this is essentially a discontinued model, with the newer NB-V65-CEC taking it's place (the CEC has a few extra tips with it).

Other Thoughts: The Black tip that does come with this one is for IBM & Lenovo laptops. At a quick glance, it looks VERY close to the popular Dell tip, but it is a couple millimeters too big to work.

Supreme Commander 2 PC Game

3 out of 5 eggs Reviewing the game, not the service 03/09/2010

This review is from: Supreme Commander 2 PC Game

Pros: A refined and more optimized engine that doesn't bog-down like the first game. Researching technology & upgrades is an interesting idea but...

Cons: Graphics quality is somewhat lower than the first one. Simplified economy; overall gameplay feels simplified and dumbed-down.

AI isn't anything impressive, but the AI in the first game wasn't spectacular either. Experimental units are far less impressive - they're much easier to build now but consequently less devastating and far easier to kill.

Singleplayer Campaign is not overly impressive. Voice acting is terrible, and the storyline (what I've seen so far) is predictable and cliche.

Other Thoughts: While the game isn't bad, it just doesn't feel like Supreme Commander anymore. Replacing the traditional Tech Tier system with a Research system is a nice idea, but in the process they dumbed-down the entire game.

Finally, I'm unsure why people have been having so many issues with Steam. I've had no problems with it what-so-ever, and I've used Steam for years now. Steam may not be perfect, but there are DRM systems that are far far worse than Steam.
