Replacement LCD Front Screen Glass Lens + Free Tools for Apple iPhone 5 White
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a perfect set for iphone 5 glass screen repair. The seller is in China yet has very fast shipping (I rec'd. mine in 5 days). The tool kit gives everything you need, including strong double backed tape which is pre-cut for the iphone (i.e. you do not need any glue with this kit). The glass itself is crystal clear and identical to the original in every way. Finished repair looks perfect / like brand new.

Cons: Be very careful seperating your broken glass off the phone's glued LCD. I was able to complete this repair, however, I did ruin my LCD by scraching off some of its very top layer. It now has a white area no longer working.

Other Thoughts: Find a good youtube video showing i-5 glass replacement using NO glue. Avoid the "done in 5 minute" videos.

EVGA SSC 02G-P4-3653-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card is a decent performer, however, it is NO faster than the GTX 550 series cards (which are far less expensive). I own a GTX 550 Ti, which has only 1GB mem, this card has 2GB GDDR5. The GTX550 runs at 900mhz, this card is close to 1100mhz. It was a GTX"550", this is a GTX"650". Now then, wouldn't you think this 650 would win out in some benchmarks, or frame rates in games. NOT ONCE. The GTX550 is breathing down its neck, and beats it outright in every game I run. On a few benchmarks, the GTX650 won out by less than a 1% difference, and always lost on every total score. I thought the DirectX11 test would show an advantage: nope. This card is simply a marketing trick, and I fell for it 100%. Why else would EVGA produce a new "series" that was not an improvement? Perhaps if you have a Z77 or newer Mobo (with PCI-e 3.0), there may be some impressive increase of one frame per second over a GTX550Ti.

Cons: I can't believe the money I wasted on this "upgrade". I also can't believe I now have to remove this Kepler lightweight, and put my GTX550 back in. I have been building PC's for 23 years, and recently had been using a lot of EVGA Nvidia cards. Well, I have never had my jaw lay on the floor for two full days, while I ran benchmark after benchmark wondering what the heck I just purchased. There was no mistake, no problems. It is what it is: an overpriced non-upgrade.

Other Thoughts: If this GTX650 is in your price range, go and look for any GTX 550 Ti series you can purchase. They will perform 100% the same as this card, or better, and you will be able to buy a nice little SSD with the money you have saved. I am totally disappointed at EVGA, and I have certainly learned a lesson regarding their honesty and integrity in marketing. The specs all say huge improvement; the card was actually a huge disappointment.

Microsoft H5D-00013 5.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 LifeCam Cinema 720p HD Webcam
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a very nice webcam, it is aluminum bodied, has a great microphone and has a glass lens. It runs fine w/o any software on Win 7, and can scale down to lower resolutions as needed for slow internet speeds, or if you simply wish to conserve bandwidth for other on-line needs. It holds onto a flat screen well, and with only a 1/2" bezel (around my monitor), there is no blockage of the screen. Skype approved, Windows Live approved, etc.

Cons: The earlier reviewer is mistaken. The similar looking (but plastic) MS webcam for 49.99 at Walmart is the base model 6ch-00001 (it is priced 10% LESS here at Newegg). THIS EXACT webcam, however, IS at Staple's & Wally-OnLine for 69.99 (+tax), it is not the model he thinks he saw at Wally, and it IS indeed sold for less here (guess this is also a Pro).

Other Thoughts: Seems Newegg is where I should have bought mine, I also paid more for THIS exact model elsewhere. There is only one better MS model than this one (model Q2F). It is 1080p, and it is $99.99 at Staples,w/Silver color Alumin. body (the price of it is also much LESS here at Newegg).
