3 out of 5 eggs Look Before You Leap 07/12/2016

This review is from: CyberPower AVR CP825AVRG 825 VA 450 Watts 8 Outlets UPS

Pros: Specs, price and inclusion of surge protector strip are attractive
Thought I'd buy a spare since I live in hurricane and frequent power outage state.

Cons: As of 07/12/2016, just checked vendor website and this product is listed as discontinued.
Personally believe vendors should clearly state whether items are EOL products.
This purchase for me could have been a real Shell Shocker.

Other Thoughts: Not comfortable buying a discontinued item in the event one arrives DOA. I'll keep shopping, thankfully I'm not desperate for a UPS at the moment, current APC model is going strong.


4 out of 5 eggs AVG Protection 2016 Unlimited Devices/1Year 07/10/2016

This review is from: AVG Protection 2016 - Unlimited Devices / 1 Year

Pros: –Was time to renew and couldn’t resist $7.99 for unlimited devices/1 year through a NewEgg emailed promo code.
--Have used AVG Antivirus/Protection/Ultimate versions (free and paid) for years in conjunction with free MalWareBytes.
–Very compatible with MalWareBytes. Automatically and safely disables MS Defender in Win 7/8.1, so user doesn’t have to manually deal with that issue inside the Control Panel.
–OnLine protection is fast and reliable, have not received false positives while surfing.
–Trustworthy in identifying suspected spam emails within Outlook or Thundermail then isolating those communications for personal scrutiny
–Numerous configuration options in the program Dashboard

Cons: --AVG could improve detection of PUPs (potentially unwanted programs), but MWB helps cover those bases–just more time consuming running Scan features in multiple programs. Deducting 1 egg because AVG missed a couple PUPs during software installations that I would have terminated at the time had I known. Fortunately, MWB caught those adware issues, they were eliminated, no harm done.

Other Thoughts: --Primarily use AVG on a desktop, laptop and two tablets. This time around, might try using the Zen feature for remote monitoring and with my LG Android cell phone.
--Few programs provide total accuracy in detection of actual or attempted intrusions, so best to use a couple compatible monitoring programs.
–Not necessarily pushing AVG products, just sharing what has worked reliably and conveniently for me for years.

ViewSonic VX2370Smh-LED Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good price, initial purchase
Looks as good as when first installed 2-1/2 years ago. Vivid colors, good resolution and renders very nice screen captures.
Definitely like the small bezel and 23" matte screen (easy on the eyes)

Cons: As others have stated, speakers are mediocre, but use an Asus DSX 7.1 Xonar sound card anyway. Have always used add-on sound cards, never built-in or on-board. Didn't buy this monitor for the sound anyway.

Other Thoughts: System:
Win 8.1 64-bit (also had it on Win 7 64-bit)
Mobo: Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 (Switching to Gigabyte GA-990FX-Gaming mobo)
CPU: AMD FX-6300 running at 4.0MHz
Card: PCI-E Diamond Radeon HD7750 model 01-7750PE51G with 1GB DDR5 (3 years, 3 months old)
Storage: SSD Samsung 850 EVO 240GBs (switching to EVO 850 M.2 card)
DRAM: Crucial Ballistix PC1866 DDR3 16GBs
Connector: HDMI using v1.4a cable

Other thoughts: Sorry to learn others have had such negative experiences, gladly, I can’t say the same with my monitor which I like very much.
