Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works

Cons: No faster than a normal 7200 RPM HDD

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these(one 1TB and one 2 TB) after reading a few tech articles saying they saw an increase in Drive speed, compared to a normal 7200RPM drive.

Unfortunately, I saw different results. There was no noticeable speed boost. I rebooted several times and nothing. 3 months down the road, I'm pleased that I at least have working hard drives.

5 out of 5 eggs Sony Quality 11/19/2013

This review is from: Sony 40" 1080P Direct LED HDTV - KDL-40R450A

Pros: The picture is great! Upgraded from a smaller Samsung and this new TV fills my TV space. Samsung is usually my goto, but the Black friday ads for the 40" Samsung are priced higher($379~399)than this sony 40"($329.99). So I took a leap of faith.

The speakers are good for stock speakers, it's lightweight, and it's effectively a 120hz with motionflow on(for those of you that it matters to). The quality of the Picture is great! Comparable to Samsung, if not better.

Cons: It doesn't make me a sandwich when I want it to.

Other Thoughts: In the end, it was worth it. Newegg packaged the TV properly(something that doesn't always happen) and it arrived promptly.

So, want a great TV for a great price? Grab this now while it's still $329.99.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 280X DirectX 11.2 100363L 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Without overclocking runs BF4 on Ultra @ 1920x1200, 58 FPS
Good Price point compared to competitors
Quiet(compared to my old Sapphire 4870)
Runs about average temperature 45 Degrees Idle & 69 Degrees full load during BF4

Cons: The Beta drivers aren't the best, so things can only get better as they develop them.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully, this card will last me as long as my last Sapphire card did. Upgraded from an old 4870, so my improvements are quite clear. This card holds a good edge on the Price vs. Performance front.

Some crashes on BF4, but people all over are experiencing this issue. Fixed mine but not overclocking this card. Works fine in other games.
