EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Drives up to three 4K monitors at 60Hz refresh at full resolution using DisplayPort 1.2 ports.

Cons: Drivers are so terrible that basic Windows 10 window scrolling results in redraw artifacting that I have not seen in dedicated display cards for many years. Video playback at full screen is horrible no matter what the resolution of the source material, and no matter what app is used.

Other Thoughts: The LATEST nVidia drivers from their own site are so utterly HORRIBLE that this card became a nightmarish downgrade from an AMD Radeon 7870 that was used to drive the same two 4k monitors. A return to NewEgg is likely if Nvidia does not release a driver fix very soon.

I'm running this on a computer with 12GB of RAM and a 4-core i7 processor. It never had trouble with video playback before using AMD cards. I only switched to Nvidia on the recommendation of a colleague, and to get more supposedly 4k-capable display port outputs. So far, the experience is very negative in every way.

SAMSUNG SmartCam SNH-P6410BN Full HD 1080P Day & Night WDR 2 Way Audio Wireless IP Camera
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great video quality; automated setup 12/17/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG SmartCam SNH-P6410BN Full HD 1080P Day & Night WDR 2 Way Audio Wireless IP Camera

Pros: Incredibly easy automated setup with step-by-step instructions on screen. Even the status LED on the camera tells you exactly what its doing. Firmware updates easy too.

Cons: The mobile app can only view one camera at a time. Sometimes difficult to get settings to stick on the viewing apps. Windows and OS X viewing app depends on browsers. Chrome is not supported unfortunately. That means using Safari on OSX, and IE on Windows, including Win10.

Other Thoughts: The product line needs the capability to view more than one camera at a time in an NxN layout. Other product lines offer that capability. Samsung also needs to support more browsers, especially Chome, or switch over to providing native apps on Windows and OSX.

Motorola Nexus 6 XT1103 32GB 4G LTE Unlocked GSM Android v5.0 Smartphone - Blue

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent phone. Like new as promised 12/12/2015

This review is from: Motorola Nexus 6 XT1103 32GB 4G LTE Unlocked GSM Android v5.0 Smartphone - Blue

Pros: Fast phone with a good screen. When activated on the AT&T LTE network, 50Mbps down, 5Mbps up in Seattle metro area. Adequate data storage capacity at 32GB. 13MP camera is ok.

After many time-consuming OS updates, finally arrived at Android 6. Certainly an improvement over Android 5. More responsive.

Cons: Camera not as good as Samsung's 16MP cameras on several phones. Placement of volume buttons is awkward, too low on the right side.

Other Thoughts: Certainly an upgrade from a LG-Google Nexus5 phone I was using for a secondary phone. Does not measure up to the Samsung Note4 or Samsung Note5. Android OS is more up-to-date than Samsung, so it helps with testing apps on the newest OS releases, which the Samsung phones usually cannot do.

Some sellers may not use shipping with tracking info or insurance. My phone was delivered without any tracking for 11 days into an unlocked mailbox out on the street. Sellers ought to be more careful.
