EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Card runs smoothly, even in Arma 3 I got pretty decent frame rate. Reasonable pricing helped in the decision making process.

Cons: I purchased this card on 4/24/15 and had it installed by 4/31. About 2 weeks ago it started having random memory dumps and then random shut downs during gameplay. Pretty weird to go from seeing Arma 3's visceral environments and then go to my POST screen because the system crashed. I updated drivers, pulled and re-seated the card and have identified through trial and error plus internet research that it is a defect with the 750 ti chip type. This doesn't seem to be just EVGA (which I have had good luck with before), but ASUS, MSI, to name a few more. Card's out of help from newegg or EVGA now. So I will be hunting for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: I hope Nvidia works on this and mitigates the problem, I really like the card when it is behaving.

CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I have a tester for the hardware thankfully.

Cons: On this build this now makes 2 DOAs. Come on guys, I've had two parts in a build that were bad, but two of the same part is kind of overboard. To all those who are looking into purchasing parts from Newegg, I would recommend getting testers that let you know whether a part is defective if you don't already have one. I know it's not Neweggs' fault, but they can only cover you for 30 days which is enough for one defective part, not two. As for Corsair, this is my first real problem with them, I have PSUs from them that have lasted for a years and I've always trusted them, maybe its time to give Apex a try.

ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For the first 2 and a half to 3 months this router worked really well for me. Fast, responsive, easy to navigate admin page.

Cons: At month 3, this past December, I started having connection loss and had to unplug and plug the device back in to get access. This continued for about a week and then stopped, figured that was the end of it. Next system to act up was the Ethernet controller, devices that my splitter would recognize wouldn't register as connected, then the internet in stopped working and now after 2 weeks of trying to get this to work I've retired this router and have gone to a Linksys E1000 that I'm borrowing from a friend. This will make device 3 in then purchase that has failed that had remarkable review for performance and quality that has failed and all of them are ASUS. 1 Sabertooth Z77 motherboard, 1 GT640 Nvidia on ASUS card and now 1 ASUS RT-N56U router. Gotta say this is my first branch out to ASUS and I'm not very impressed at the longevity. Overall quality assessment, 3 months or less of life. I hope this is just a batch of lemons.
