2 out of 5 eggs nVidia drivers blow.... 11/04/2014

This review is from: EVGA 04G-2982-KR GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0

Pros: Card is very well made, the light up logo is a nice touch. Seems to run quiet and cool.

Cons: NVidia drivers just blow.

I've attempted to make the switch from AMD to Nvidia 3 times, and all 3 have been plagued with issues. I had an EVGA 760 that completely hosed an OS install once I installed the drivers. Then I had the same issue with a completely different system and an EVGA 780.

So that brings me to now. I swapped out my OCed 290X (which ran beautifully, just couldn't do 4k60 over HDMI).... at first I couldn't get sound over HDMI @ 4k60 unless I followed some ridiculous set of steps with my TV. So I managed to get that squared away, and now I get random black screens for 2 seconds. Audio still plays, but the picture just blacks out every so often. The only way I've found to fix this is to go into the NVidia driver and reset the refresh from 60 to 50, then back to 60. That seems to solve the problem until the next time I turn the TV off.

You'd think I'd have learned my lesson by now...

Other Thoughts: I've tried various cables, none seem to alleviate the problem. I've tried various TV settings and ports. Again, nothing. I've even swapped out stereo receivers and played around with pass-through settings, etc.

Hurry up AMD and release a card with HDMI 2.0 so I can sell this card to someone else since Neweggs return policy is nonexistent on graphics cards. Seriously, why would I want to return the card for the same thing if it doesn't work for me?

3 out of 5 eggs Great Lense, but overpriced. 06/27/2011

This review is from: Nikon 2199 AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Lens Black

Pros: This is supposed to be one of the best auto-focus 50mm's.

Cons: This is virtually cheaper EVERYWHERE else (by an average of 40-50$) This is very unlike NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: I love NewEgg (and my order history proves it) but they are priced way out of market for anyone that even googles this lense. I'd buy it here in an instant if they brought it down to at least 220 (the average) shipped. I haven't bought it yet, but will probably in the next couple weeks.

Titan Water case TWC-A88/AB Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Great idea
Excellent case materials
Comes with everything you need

Cons: My pump was DOA. The LCD also read in the high 400's (C) for a temperature. Be ready to use a SMALL powersupply. My coolermaster 850w didn't fit so I had to get a new one.

Other Thoughts: I'm RMA'ing this for a replacement. This thing costs 50$+ dollars to ship!!!!! This new one better work or Newegg is going to hear it from me. At 120$ this case was a good deal, now we're rounding the 175$ mark which is NOT something I wanted to pay for it.
