5 out of 5 eggs 1 yr review 04/05/2013

This review is from: Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV 40FT2U

Pros: 1 year constant use no issues
2 HDMI inputs (I can use HDMI hub if I need more)

40 inch 1080p @ $10 an inch

Rated 8ms or less (Average LCD Monitor Speed)

Cons: Box had another label on it, like it was supposed to have been shipped to some Doctor's office or similar business.
Box had a few dents, and tape was nearly opened fully. Probably from repeated shipments/dragging along floor by warehouse staff.

I was about to refuse shipment, but after inspection all parts where there, no added tape on box, and no physical damage to the TV. So I decided to keep it.

I assume it must of been a refusal of delivery from a previous order, or a canceled order.

As far as non Newegg related Cons, I have none.

I heard horror stories about this product while doing research and I was scared. Glad I did not have similar issues. So a con could be it did not live up to those expectations??? Ha ha ha.

Newegg does not have anymore in stock.

Other Thoughts: I have not tried to use the TV directly without a Cable Converter Box, it might eliminate some issues I have.

I have also not used the VGA, Component, Digital Out, or other inputs. Only the two HDMI ports.

Built in audio is not loud (what do you expect from hidden built-in speakers on a flat screen TV). 7W + 7W

Actually pretty loud and good for only being 7 watt speakers I think.

Also my version was a 40FT2U1 (Revision 1 I assume)

No issues with audio, or video. Used every day, no less than 6-8 hours daily if not more.

Actually surprised to find such a good TV from Toshiba, I had to make sure to write a review.

Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Low Costing Average Gaming Headset 03/04/2012

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: Cheaper then most Headsets ($50-$150)
I've had these for around 3 years
Pretty durable (withstood a guest stepping on them several times and abusing them while he stayed with me) I used almost everyday for 3 years, do not wrap them up and store properly.
Mic is removable.
Fairly comfortable (unless you have big ears)
Going to make a great back-up pair when I upgrade!

Cons: Drivers/Software
I have had issues throughout the years especially when Windows 7 first came out, or with my Creative Sound card software as they use similar software, but were not compatible always.
Still do not have software set up on Windows 7 Laptop, currently using Windows update drivers, as software does not seem to want to work with my Win 7 64-bit set-up for some reason.
Mic foam (small and falls of easily)
Wish headsets came with an extra foam piece always lose them when others use headset/mistreats them)
Does not bock out sounds so outside sound mixes with game sounds.
Latency issues with Virtual DJ Pro sometimes.

Other Thoughts: Started getting complaints on TS3 of static/hum in background. I tested mic and heard, looked at mic and it twisted (has black tab to avoid this, but failed).
I bought a pair of Turtle Beach (3.5mm) 7.1 headset, They are heavier, a pain with all the cables, and not compatible, or logical to use with my laptop.
So, I use my Fatal1ty set for use (currently I only have my laptop available for use)
When software is installed and working...
You can hear footsteps well in games like Counter Strike: Source and Joint Operations.
Noise cancellation or sound muffling (unless new revisions are better) with these on, sound is exactly the same as without them. Maybe slightly lower, but barely.
Final thought:
If you want an affordable, long lasting (3 years constant use/abuse), good sounding, virtual surround sound headset get these.
If these are too expensive, Rosewill makes a pair that sound great for the price and are cheaper. Be warned that pair has a super bright LED light and are supe

SAMSUNG T23A950 Black 23
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Great monitor, 1080p even with 3D graphics @ 120Hz
Clear viewing from large viewing area (angles)
2D-3D without software
DTV tuner

Cons: Newegg and website

Within an hour of bringing up the site and comparing models, prices and reviews (middle of the day EST) New egg changed the price as I went to check out. Say price change as I was reviewing order.

Thought I did something wrong, went back and it had gone up in price $100.

Called to ask why it went up, told they are allowed to change price anytime without warning up until I actually checkout (pay).

Lied to about how price alerts work, told I can make multiple price alerts for same item (was placed on hold why they verified), not true (try it yourself). If I check with rebates, will only be notified of price alerts with rebates and for exact price was told.

Newegg has the power to honor the price, but it's up to the managers discretion... so hope you get lucky.

Other Thoughts: I do not own this model, I own the version without DTV tuner, works great so far... wanted to add this one for dual monitors with ability to watch TV at work desk. I have an issue with 3D Blu-rays, I am not sure if it is a Lite-on or AMD issue, but I hooked up my Nvidia powered laptop and 3D Blu-rays work fine.
Besides Blu-ray 3D, all other 3D looks great, even 2D-3D on Netflix.

I am sticking to local stores for now on... I have spent Thousands of dollars just this month alone here, let alone the 10 years plus I have been shopping here. At least in local stores they do not run up to you and change the price while you are shopping.
