PowerColor Radeon HD 6950 DirectX 11 AX6950 1GBD5-2DHE 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works okay, but with an important caveat.

Cons: What I thought was a bargain on a older card, turned out to be not so much of a bargain.

When I installed this the on my Windows 10 system, I went to download the latest driver from AMD, only to discover this card has JUST been moved to "legacy support" . The latest driver for this card is a couple of generations old an the only Crimson driver appears to be a generic "beta" driver AND no new driver will be coming for this card. Thus, the life span for this card is quite limited if you intended to use it for any kind of gaming where updated drivers are frequently needed. Furthermore, I am having issues with this beta driver and will be hopefully returning some older catalyst version.

On the Powercolor website, they are offering no windows 10 drivers or this card at all, their latest available driver for this card are pre-crimson, catalyst driver for WIndows 8.1.

So it appears that upon hearing from AMD that this card was heading to a "legacy support" designation and thus the dustbin of history, they dumped their inventory it to newegg customers, or what Power color might otherwise call suckers.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend consider the a "legacy support" designation by AMD for this chipset.

Rosewill RX100-PU3-25B - Armer External 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Very disappointed by this thing. I've bought Rosewill in the past and found it to be okay. But this time not so much. 02/01/2016

This review is from: Rosewill RX100-PU3-25B - Armer External 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure - 9.5 mm HDDs Up to 1 TB, USB 3.0, SATA I / II, White LED Indicator, 100% Screw-Less

Pros: Works, but that's about it.

Cons: - No manual, none. Not even a picture of how to install your drive, etc. You just figure it out for yourself. Not difficult, but even after you do figure it out, you won't be amazed at how poorly this is designed and built.

- The case is made of VERY cheap plastic. It fits together very poorly.

- Your hard drive is "installed" without any kind of locking mechanism, not even a screw to hold the drive down in the case. The drive just wobbles around inside the case.

-Cheap, yes. and certainly not worth it. You get exactly what you pay for - almost.

Don't expect this to last.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill should be ashamed of the poor quality of and embarrassed to have their name associated with this product.

But this again? Not in your life.

Even at $13, is priced $12 too high considering how cheaply this is made.

Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K1000 HDS721010KLA330 (0A35155) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Junk, junk, junk

Cons: Had thousands and thousands of hours already logged on SMART. Very noisy, pathetic performance, stuttered when streaming mp3 or video files. This should be called Hitachi Trash"STAR"
So bad you'll wonder if the land of the rising sun is sending this to the US in revenge for WWII.
Worked so badly I threw it away. This is no bargain.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend this to anyone.
Worst product I've ever bought on Newegg.
Don't waste your time or money.
