This review is from: XFX Gift - DEUS EX Game Coupon
Pros: It didn't add any weight to my shipping.
Cons: Newegg had this listed as a package deal with an AMD video card. The only problem is that the game offer is good from April 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. Newegg took my order on January 17, 2013. Only missed it by three weeks.
The web page used for download doesn't even exist any more.
Other Thoughts: It didn't cost me anything so I guess I can't officially complain. Kind of a waste of my time though. And I suspect it did entice some people to buy that particular video card thinking that they were getting a game in the bargain. Psych.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech EPS8EXT 8" EPS 8 Pin Power Extension Cable
Pros: Inexpensive yet high quality. Perfectly fine for moving electrons.
Uses industry standard colors for the supply voltage used.
Cons: Could be an inch or two longer and it wouldn't offend me.
Other Thoughts: Perfectly functional extension for those cases where the power supply is on the bottom and the motherboard assumes the power supply is on the top. This generally means that you have to pull the 8-pin supply cable across the MB from bottom to top to get the plug in. It can be done but if you have cards (e.g., video cards, NICs, etc.) or a large CPU heatsink, it is going to be draped across everything in the case. Of course sometimes it simply won't make it at all. Stretching copper is pretty difficult.
I guess for those of you with lexan on the side of your case it is not very visually appealing. Mine sits behind a piece of black steel so I can't see it anyway.
This review is from: PNY Attaché 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD16GATT2-GE
Pros: - Nearly STOLE this from Newegg on a cyber Monday deal.
- Seeing transfer rates around 27 MB/s
- No offensive blue LEDs
Cons: - Remember when every thumb drive came with a lanyard and a clip?
- Remember when people called these 'thumb drives'?
Other Thoughts: Not sure why people are having trouble with these. This one works like a champ. I paid about what you'd expect to pay for a 4GB stick. I read somewhere that people were seeing drastic speed differences with different batches of these. I guess mine came with the GOOD silicon because I haven't had any problems.READ FULL REVIEW
