StarTech.com 2m Micro USB Cable - A to Down Angle Micro B
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Seems To Be Good 04/21/2016

This review is from: StarTech.com 2m Micro USB Cable - A to Down Angle Micro B

Pros: Right angle perfect for what is needed. Cable seems to be good quality.

Cons: Would be nice if the plug was a reverse direction to the right angle, but it's no fault of the company.

Other Thoughts: Will update if cable breaks too soon

Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works like it should, used as a second hard drive.. I also have the 1TB version and that's been running fine for 6 months now.. I expect the same with this 1TB drive.. :)

Cons: None that I can see

Other Thoughts: Will eventually get two of these nice HDD's and RAID them together.. Can't have too much space :)

UPDATE: Had to RMA 6 months later for failure. Seagate was extremely great to work with and replaced the drive without any issues. Even offered data recovery options. Will be sticking with Seagate drives here on out :)

GIGABYTE Radeon R9 270 GV-R927OC-2GD 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Mostly Ultra / UPDATE: It's got some issues.. 01/02/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE Radeon R9 270 GV-R927OC-2GD 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: I am very satisfied with this GPU, it's my first computer build so I was expecting medium graphics at best.. However, I am able to play most games on ultra and those that seem to lag a bit I can drop down either Shadows or Particles and it fixes the issues.. Watch Dogs I'm playing fully Ultra with Shadows on Low. Game is amazing with those settings.. :)

Cons: The only con I've run in to is that when trying to overclock using AMD Catalyst, sometimes it overdoes it and crashes the GPU.. Even on the recommended settings for overclock. It's not a good card if you want to overclock while gaming, and I highly do NOT recommend it with this card without water cooling. On it's stock cooler it hits 60C just on normal operations. Overclocking would not be safe with this card..

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a great card, if you are new to building computers or just want something within budget, I totally recommend this GPU. Gigabyte hasn't steered me wrong yet :)

*Keep in mind the new mod that unlocks hidden features in Watch Dogs will not work with this GPU as it also puts shadows and particles on Ultra. It'll look amazing, but you will have a TON of lag.. ;)

UPDATE: Ran into quite a few glitching and color bar issues with this GPU.. I switched to NVidia and all my problems went away. It may not be just they type of card but the company that puts this one out as I've had issues with a Gigabyte motherboard as well. All issues vanished when I switched to ASUS. I'm thinking it's just a GIgabyte issue. I don't recommend this company at all.
