MSI R9 280 GAMING 3G 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works it had no issues at all.

Cons: Installed it, booted up, ran tests, happy with improvement, sent in MiR. Go to boot again, black screen after windows. I have to shutdown and immediately boot it back up in order to get windows to fully boot.

Other Thoughts: I worked with there support and tested multiple AMD drivers since the standard VGA drivers had no problem booting. And they did issue an RMA but I'm supposed to pay to ship a defective out of the box part to them, wait a few weeks and get a refurb in its place? No thanks.

Foxconn A75M FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very nice compact board, all of the features you would need for basic computing. I'm using mine in my living room as my DVR computer.

Cons: The USB 3.0 ports do not play well with either of the USB 3.0 external drives I've connected to them. They keep disconnecting. These drives work fine with my Intel desktop. I currently have a USB 2.0 drive connected and it works without issue.

Other Thoughts: The last bios update has the wrong date on the website, it says its 2 months newer than it actually is, a fact that has caused me to flash it at least twice since I thought the bios from the website is newer than the one I'm running.

CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Spectacular key action, adjustable back light, solid construction, no special drivers needed

Cons: I didn't think I'd miss it but I do miss the arrow key row, mostly because I use the delete key more than I realized. The delete key is now only available as the alternate function of that number 4. Also the 00 is nice, but for me personally I would've switched it and 0. And because of the way the lights are set up the number 2, fn and f12 don't light up. Lastly the function key is on the bottom, I don't think I've ever seen that before.

Other Thoughts: I miss not having a dedicated calculator key, I hardly ever used it but looking at my old Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 I miss it nonetheless.

And since I've only had it a week I can't really speak to longevity, which is a contributing factor to its 4 egg rating.
