DSI Big Font Large Print USB Yellow Key Keyboard PC Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Good for what it is 01/02/2014

This review is from: DSI Big Font Large Print USB Yellow Key Keyboard PC Compatible

Pros: Very inexpensive, the shipping was more then the KB, and works for what it is, a cheap USB keyboard for people who have vision issues. I bought this for an 80+ year old senior who was having trouble with the hunt and peck method on other keyboards.

Cons: Does not seem to work on legacy USB ports. I had to disable them in the bios and use only 2.0/3.0 ports to get windows 7 to even recognize it as plugged in. Support brackets are flimsy and provide only a small lift. Probably not a good fit for someone who types a great deal.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's worth the consideration if this sort of thing is what you're looking for. Worst case, you toss it and you're out the expense of a decent cheeseburger.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent 8 Core Proc for the money - I'm finally not CPU bound on Planetside 2 and there's plenty of muscle to multitask across dual-monitor work spaces.

Cons: The Fan. It sounds like the tortured wail of a thousand Siamese cats in heat. Like the bearings are just gone and it will catch fire any minute. I know stock fans are not all that great, but never expected noise to be a primary complaint.

Other Thoughts: Will be replacing with a cheap solution immediately - I don't OC so cooling isn't a big issue; I'd RMA it but the processor is working like a charm. Not sure AMD warranties their fans?

WD Blue WD1600BB 160GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Functioned fine for a month, then fail. 12/15/2011

This review is from: WD Blue WD1600BB 160GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great shipping, packaging, worked fine out of the box.

Cons: Suddenly failed almost exactly 30 days after first use. Purchasing a warranty plan is a waste of money, the 3rd party is very difficult to interact with and WD sends you in infinite support call / email loops. Very dissatisfied.

Other Thoughts: I wish I'd seen all these comments sooner. Most were not here when I bought it. These drives are evidently quite defective unless NewEgg is selling thousands of them and we're a vocal minority. Somehow I doubt it.
