This review is from: Newegg Premier 12 Month Membership
Pros: Supposed to give you automatic rush processing and discounted shipping. On paper, at least.
Cons: Supposed to. Doesn't. First order since renewing, was delayed, didn't ship out, the customer service folks no longer have the ability to call warehouse (or wouldn't.)
Other Thoughts: Regardless how things go, Newegg's made me unhappy. This is the same Newegg, which had, before "premier," been able to SAME DAY ship an order they hadn't sent out the day before (aka bungled) for a mission critical piece of equipment I ordered for a customer the day before labor day (they always fail at the best times) with overnight shipping and rush processing (before premier.)
Been using Premier for sometime now and used to be a happy newegg customer since they first started, so .. "a long time."
Pros: Bought one of these from newegg and one elsewhere. The newegg unit was a good price, very classy rig, with a pretty finish and a nice brushed aluminum feel, and with all the bennies of an AMD A-8 / A10.
The unit from newegg was brand new.
Came with windows 8.1 COA in the bios (that's how Windows 8+ is done these days, sticky COA is only for reinstalls or upgrades of OEM or retail for the time being), which was nice.
Cons: Came with some typical high level manufacturer fluff and required a reinstall and tweaking for the users in question.
Other Thoughts: Be VERY careful who it is you're buying these from. Seen them at a certain store reminiscent starts with a W ends with a T, and discovered theirs, for almost the same price was a REFURB/Recondition... Only says so on their website, not in store. Was actually out of stuck, but dirty that other people sell refurbs/reconditions for 20 bucks cheaper than the price of the newegg new one... and don't tell you theirs are refurbs.
**** The one from newegg was new. ****
Careful where you shop. Newegg did well on this one! I'd give'em six eggs.
Pros: I've run these as my performance enhancer on an A10 setup of my own design (put it like this, the A10 is a fantastic chip with the right accompanying hardware.)
Price was high (my company's a Crucial reseller, but we couldn't get anything from them in red, and the system in question was themed black and red) at the time I was looking, Newegg was the only one with this speed memory in stock and ready to ship for a gaming system in black and red...
Cons: Expensive. At the time.
Other Thoughts: Couldn't get our friends from Taiwan to resell this to us directly in larger quantities.READ FULL REVIEW
