SONY MDR-RF4000K Circumaural 2.4GHz Digital RF Wireless Headphones
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very comfortable, no signal degradation at other side of the house from the transmitter.

Cons: Sound is *okay*. The bass is a bit weak and muddy compared to the wired v900hd, but that's to be expected from wireless I guess.

The included battery pack has an 8 hour discharge, but takes *15 hours* to recharge. You will need an extra pair of rechargeables to rotate if you are a heavy user.

It wouldn't charge the first few times I put it in the dock. I almost RMAd it before it started working after trying several different sets of batteries. On top of that, the included battery pack came discharged. Getting a new gadget is always fun, but having to wait 15 hours to use it was a big disappointment.

Other Thoughts: I am trying to reduce wire clutter on my work desk, so these fit the bill, but I'm not terribly impressed with them. Minus 1 star for the mediocre sound, and another for the poor battery life.

EVGA 025-P3-1579-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) HD 2560MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Amazing card! I usually look for cards around the $200 range, but this was worth every penny. Plays Skyrim on ultra at 2560x1440 with the high res texture pack without breaking a sweat. Tops out at 80 degrees running furmark 15 minute burn in.

Cons: Fan gets a little loud at around 60%, but that's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: It's also worth mentioning how awesome eVGA customer service is. Once I botched the installation of an aftermarket cooler and fried my card. I didn't even have the original heatsink, and they took it back, paid for the shipping, and replaced it with a *better* card! I can't imagine any other manufacturer doing that.

4 out of 5 eggs High quality but struggles with heavy monitors 03/20/2012

This review is from: Ergotron 45-214-026 MX Desk Mount LCD Arm

Pros: Extremely high quality, you can tell from handling it that it will probably outlast the monitor it's attached to. You can easily adjust the monitor to any position you prefer.

Cons: Has trouble holding up my 27" cinema display, so I'm glad I didn't buy the 30". I use the monitor in portrait mode while working, and landscape for movies and such, so I wanted to be able to transition between the two quickly. Using the clamp, the 27" monitor just barely sits straight in portrait mode, and scrapes the desk under it to the point that I was worried about scratching it. When in landscape mode, it is a bit wobbly as other reviewers have stated (even typing causes it to bounce a bit), but not enough to distract me from work.

Other Thoughts: One egg removed for being a bit unsteady when using a monitor under the stated max size and weight.
