This review is from: CREATIVE T3150W WIRELESS BLUETOOTH 2.1 SPEAKER (BLACK)
Pros: Looks great, remote power and volume control is nice. Can't complain for the low cost. Sound is very clear and gets pretty loud without distortion. Bass isn't overpowering but still adequate. Nice long cords.
Cons: Mesh over the speaker cones is pretty fragile.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech UNIDOCK2U USB to SATA IDE Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5in or 3.5in HDD
Pros: Sleek, looks good, reads SATA and most IDE Drives
Cons: I bought this for one specific purpose, to access an IDE hard drive. My external HD case became non-functional once I lost the power adapter. I pulled the WD 160GB hard drive out of it and planned to just use this docking station to access the drive while using my laptop. THE DOCKING STATION WOULD NOT ACCESS THE DRIVE. I tried numerous SATA drives and even other IDE drives and it worked fine. It just would not work with the WD 160GB drive I needed to access. I ended up having to crack open my desktop and install the drive inside it. The drive works fine and I could access it once it was installed in the desktop, just wouldn't work with this docking station.
Other Thoughts: Newegg is great about returns so I can't be mad at them. they took care of the refund no problem.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Cons: This is the 3rd DOA motherboard I have gotten in the last 2 weeks. All have been Gigabyte boards. The first two had the wrong socket on them (white not black) so they weren't AM3+ compatible. Those two boards went back. Bought a slightly different model the 3rd time. It too is DOA. I install it and all my components and it does absolutely nothing. Does not turn on. If I reinstall my "bad" MOBO (ASRock 970 Extreme3) it powers on like it should. There is a problem with the Gigabyte boards. Currently waiting for Gigabyte's response to my situation.
Other Thoughts: At least Newegg is really good about returns. Seems like I've been doing that a lot lately. In fact the last 4 items I've bought were DOA or defective in some way. (3 motherboards and a HDD Docking Station). I also just bought some speakers. Haven't tested them yet since I can't power up my PC due to all the DOA parts. My luck, they'll probably be DOA too.
