ASUS VE278H Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Difficult to list any "pros" since the mechanism for adjusting the monitor angle is stuck/jammed and it can't be used. The monitor was delivered VERY quickly ... big deal.

Cons: The paragraph headings in the instructions are in English but excepting perhaps a single sentence of "explanation" there is every language BUT English. Thus far this is a disaster. I am afraid I might break the "swiveling device" when trying to free it. BTW, I am not a klutz when it comes to electronics & tools. What a hassle this is. I expect the adjustment mechanism was originally damaged before shipment as the instruction pictures indicated one needs to attach it. It came attached AND jammed. Good luck to you.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased other ASUS parts for home builds but the peripherals like monitors seem to be sub-standard. 1 star because monitor is, for now, absolutely unusable and cannot its intended functionality cannot be evaluated.

ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Has worked very well at 2.4 Ghz for 9+ months. CHEAP and reliable at 2.4

Cons: Lost the capability for 5 Ghz after 2 months. It just quit detecting the 5Ghz signal. The signal IS available as other devices can connect using it but this adapter just quit working at that frequency

Other Thoughts: Fortunately I can still get 25 MBs download speeds which are sufficient for my needs but less than the 50 I am paying for. [SIGH]

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Windows (select) PC Game
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Just for the money 12/26/2014

This review is from: Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Windows (select) PC Game

Pros: No immediate or apparent bugs

Cons: The game is utterly unnecessary as CIV5 is OBVIOUSLY far far superior. A waste of money on a repainted used up car. Can't return or get a refund because of licensing. Bummer all the way around

Other Thoughts: The difference between Civ:BE and Civ 5 is similar to the difference between Civ 4 and Civ 5 only going in the wrong direction. This mash-up was brought to market ONLY for the cash it would generate from the fans of Civ series. Sid Meier has badly betrayed the fan base and scooted off with the cash. Oh well.
