PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 DirectX 11 AX6850 1GBD5-DH 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Crossfire capable
- relatively low power consumption

Cons: - Not that *future* proof (when the future is only year after)
- Drivers were meh at the beginning

Other Thoughts: It was a cheap way to do crossfire but sadly it didn't matter. Tons of lag while playing certain games at normal settings, still lag while in low settings. Some games drop from 60fps to 1fps... not good.

Asus VH238H Black 23

1 out of 5 eggs Are people here blind or I got a bad one? 12/05/2011

This review is from: Asus VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 250 cd/m2 ASCR 50,000,000:1

Pros: Good size, HD, price

Cons: - Washed out colors out of the box AND after the pro calibration with i1 x-rite.
- cannot adjust height
- no USB port extender (didn't really take any points because of this, I was spoiled by my old HP227w monitor)
- the menus are ridiculous, maybe one day they'll realize how easy is to be intuitive

Other Thoughts: As a professional photographer and a PC enthusiast (I know, more than half of photographers use apple products) I was very interested on this promising monitor. My former monitor was just the same size, different resolution but pretty much the same... With more features. HP did a great job researching the end users. Aside the features (secondary to the big issue) the main problem is with the color and the gamma of the monitor. I've never seen a more washed-out picture in a long time... The Blacks is are dark grey and there is no "pop". I calibrate my monitors every month with x-rite and this one is just bad... Maybe I have a bad one or maybe is the way it is but I am not going to get stuck with a subpar monitor. Another thought, the presets are a joke.

Speck Products Green SeeThru SATIN For iPhone 3G & 3GS IPH3G-SAT-GR
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cool effect, seems to protect the item

Cons: This product is terrible. I bought the first satin case (red) and loved it. It lasted 1 month after a friend pull one side and broke the seam. I thought it was just a fluke. Then I bought 2 more, one for a friend and another one for me. I used the one I bought for me and lasted 1 week, same issue, the seam start getting unglued. I had to take it appart to use the one I bought for my friend and use it. I have it in my phone right now and just this morning it started to come apart.

Other Thoughts: What a waste of money!!! Stay away from Speck products... they might look cool but they break very easy!!!
