Sennheiser MX 85 3.5mm Connector Earbud Sport Earphone
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Problematic 07/09/2009

This review is from: Sennheiser MX 85 3.5mm Connector Earbud Sport Earphone

Pros: Really does stay in your ears when nothing else will.

Cons: 1) Sweat clogs the speaker 30 minutes into my workout, removing volume and base, but they are fine the next day after they dry. (The sweat can't be shaken out immediately)

2) Cord is ridiculously prone to tangling because it is designed to be rolled into a container. After almost a year, it's still like a slinky and needs almost a full minute to untangle each day.

3) Developed a short after 10 months and had to be thrown away.

Other Thoughts: Sound is fine, nothing special. Better than a dollar store pair, not as good as Bose, but at least they stay in.

Canon PIXMA MP240 2911B002 Up to 19 ppm Black Print Speed 600 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Prints fine. Seems to come with full ink cartridges. Can stack thing on top of its flat square surface. Cheap.

Cons: Had a little difficulty setting up in Vista because I first allowed Vista to automatically find and download drivers, and then installed the drivers from the DVD when I thought the auto install was frozen. After a couple of reboots, the problem was corrected and the printer was recognized by all apps.

ASUS GeForce 9600 GT DirectX 10 EN9600GT TOP/HTDI/512M 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Fast
Installs easily
On sale, plus free shipping, plus rebate.

Cons: Eats power supplies that are less than 26A on the 12v rail (more than 95% of power supplies)

Takes up 2 card slots

Other Thoughts: All I needed was a $40 card to run a new 21" lcd, but I thought, "why not spend $40 more and get something that could game. I don't game, but my 4 and 6 y/o boys soon will.

When this card arrived it was clear that it would eat 2 of my 4 pci/pcie slots.

It ran as soon as it was put in, but took a dozen boot ups to configure 3 programs from Asus, my monitor SW and to remove 4 programs associated with my old on-board video card.

Cool so far, so I thought, "why not install the included After Dark game and show off to my 6 year old". So after a 45 minute install of that game, I turned up all the settings, and called him in. We both were very impressed for 10 minutes until the computer just went cold and black. My power supply died! (I don't know if my drives and MB are ok yet.)

After 3 hours research, I see that single 12v rail power
supplies with 26+ amps (like Corsair) that can run this are $100 (and 4 days away.)

Lesson - don't buy this unless you need it.
