ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti STRIX-GTX750TIOC2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Compact, light and well built, sips power, decent performance, silent, easy requirements. Install latest drivers from NVidia rather than Asus' website.

Cons: Asus tweak UI software is a bit clunky and dated looking. While it mostly works, the UI could be smaller and more efficient. Not to mention it looks like the style en vogue 10 years ago. I'd recommend Asus to make the UI more efficient in screen space and use flatter colors to match modern windows themes more. But that latter note is personal taste I guess.

Other Thoughts: I do light gaming (LOL and TF2) with no heavy hardware requirements from my HTPC/audio content creation box. This box was built to be silent, with only 2 fans in the whole system, one on the CPU, and a case fan. It was built in 2012, and still today I can barely hear it when there is no noise outside. I have a 400W seasonic fanless PSU, and wanted to upgrade from the integrated GPU to improve frame rates in LOL, while not compromising the system quietness. Also, I was under obvious PSU constraints. This card fit the bill. It installed fine. Initial testing in LOL revealed my FPS went form 30 to 140 with all settings maxed out. The card is not especially taxed, either. GPU temps went up to 55c on average during game play, which was not even high enough to kick in the fans. I have them set to go in at 65. I did get them going eventually, though I saw them move but I could not hear them with my head 3 feet away. So mission accomplished. I have significant gameplay improvement, no extra noise and a small increase in power consumption. The GPU is VERY good at powering down when you stop taxing it. It clocks down and sips power. I haven't watched videos yet, but I suspect it would make a great HTPC card from what I've seen.

Pros: Came from New egg. Light, good build.

Cons: I received a Rev 01 model. The white has a yellow tinge. Doesn't look great at all. I want to return it.

AGPtek® Laptop/Notebook Battery Replacement for Dell Studio 1535 1536 1537 1555 1557 1558 PP33L PP39L Battery - [6Cell 11.1V 4400mAh]   aftermarket
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, seller has good service and RMA.

Cons: second battery, which shipped after RMA of the first one, started failing after one month, which is the RMA warranty on it. I think I'll look elsewhere for a replacement, after trying two of these and both were defective. My laptop shuts down suddenly and on reboot I get a notice the battery isn't recognized. After a couple reboots I can manage to get it to work again. Also, it seems to drain erratically. A waste of time and dangerous for your data. I guess I'll try to find another brand.
