OEM Production 2550L2D-MxPC Intel NM10 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low power, amazing size and quiet enough for me.

Cons: a little noisy stock fan (mine is in a closet so don't care)
a little tricky to get USB CD rom hooked up for installation, but not really bad (a little picky on ports)

Other Thoughts: been running smoothwall 3.0 on it and performance is awesome. It uses 15w all the time so my UPS can hold up my entire network for about 2 hours with this thing running. I'm thinking about buying a 2nd just so if this one dies I can replace it with the same thing.
Get it... totally worth it.

eForCity Headset for Microsoft xBox 360, White

3 out of 5 eggs Alright for a child 03/30/2015

This review is from: eForCity Headset for Microsoft xBox 360, White

Pros: It works right out of the box, no drivers needed if xbox drivers already on pc

Cons: too small for adult sized noggin. If you expand the head grip fully it will technically fit on your head but would probably cause a blood clot considering how tight it is (and no, I don't have an unusually large cranium). I will have to use it around my neck for mic only (which kind of negates the purpose of having a built in headphone).
If you're buying it for a kid under 10 they will probably be ok (but check on them every hour or so to make sure they're face isn't turning purple!)

Other Thoughts: the mic arm is on the left side (and cord comes out the left side) but the arm doesn't swivel past 90 degrees so you can switch it around to the other ear. At least the cord only goes to the controller and not to the pc so the cord isn't in the way. Still annoying since it would have been zero effort on the designer to allow it to swivel 180 degrees to allow right side use.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 100311-3L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Card is very stable, quiet, and stays very cool (59C full load).
Was a slight (15%) improvement over my old 5870 card.
Is able to handle 5040x1050 with 3 monitors but I had to turn down settings to medium from a stable ultra mode to get decent frame rates (pretty much expected unless you crossfire 2 of these). Handles 3360x1050 (iz3d monitor 3d mode) perfectly on all games >40fps

Cons: None so far. Drivers are generally stable (no more grey screens of death).

Other Thoughts: I like the cooler on this card but I do wish it was designed to push all the heat out of my case. It's mostly open on both ends (since it's a double fan model) so most of the heat pulled from the memory and voltage chips are pumped back into the case. Again, this is not a con, just the nature of a double fan cooler, which does work better than a single "exhaust" type cooler. Just understand it will heat up any components behind or above the video card and the case itself (probably less than a few degrees).
