HP Laptop 350 G1 (K4L54UT#ABA) Intel Core i5 4210U (1.70GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This new i5 4210 really cooks -- don't worry about the 1.7GHz, it has a burst mode that takes it up to around 2.66 GHz when needed. The Intel graphics are fast and crisp -- a very nice display for general computing purposes. I swapped in a 500GB Samsung SSD (from Newegg, of course) and never booted the original hdd. I installed Linux with a KDE desktop, and it boots to the desktop in 10 seconds. This is a very fast computer for the $400 that I paid. By the way, the power adapter will accept from 100 - 240 V input, 1.7 Amp, 50 - 60 Hz, so it will work with European power, although the modular wall plug is for US sockets.

Cons: I'm just not that good with a touchpad, and this one is typically sensitive to wrongful bumps. So I park it on a book and plug in a USB mouse and a USB keyboard, when I don't need to travel with it.

Other Thoughts: My son in-law's old Asus laptop fried itself right before Thanksgiving, so we did a joint Black Friday research project, and this was the best deal anywhere within the price range. He bought one too on the same day, and loves it with the Win 7 OS.

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model CM2X2048-6400C5

5 out of 5 eggs Needed a refund -- not Newegg's fault 06/04/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS2 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model CM2X2048-6400C5

Pros: It probably works as advertised on the right motherboard.

Cons: Corsair's "Memory Finder" shows it is the correct memory for an ASRock G31M-GS R2.0. It is not. The ASRock is looking for TRas 15 (as I found out the hard way). This memory has TRas 18, and fails memtest86 right away. Thank you Newegg for understanding and immediately issuing the RMA.

Other Thoughts: Why I stick with Newegg over the years.

SAMSUNG C370 S24C370HL High Glossy Black White Stand 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks good, works good. OK, I'm a longtime Samsung fan - this is not my first Samsung monitor, but they never disappoint. It's a lot of monitor for the price.

Cons: Can't think of one.

Other Thoughts: It is connected to an older Nvidia GPU on a Linux desktop system, and performs really well.
