HP EX920 M.2 512GB

HP EX920 M.2 512GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 2YY46AA#ABC
HP EX920 M.2 512GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 2YY46AA#ABC

Pros: - price: cheaper than the top contenders but performs at the same level - speed: very fast and reached advertised speeds - heat-sink

Cons: None!

Overall Review: A little tricky to set and install Windows 10 on some motherboards. Make sure that you have the latest BIOS firmware before installing. My laptop - MSI GL62m was showing it in the BIOS but couldn't boot from it. I had to convert the MBR during installation and then it was fine... Glad to see HP coming strong into the SSD game! Probably only XPG is a tough competitor to this SSD in terms of price/performance/quality ratio... Highly recommended!!!

MK1 87 Keys Mechanical Keyboard LED Breathing Light Backlit Anti-ghosting Compact USB Wired Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Blue Swithes for PC Laptop Mac

Pros: - great build quality. very sturdy and well built - key clicking is not too loud - many pre-defined key-lighting options - compact but still very functional - price

Cons: - you can't re-program any of the keys. you can't change the color of a specific key or row of keys.

Overall Review: Cons are minor and expected at this price point. I recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for a good compact mechanical gaming keyboard.

Beatit 800A Peak 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter

Beatit 800A Peak 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter With Smart Jumper Cables (Up to 6.0L Gas or 5.0 Diesel Engines) Auto Battery Booster Power Pack Phone Power Bank With Smart Charging Ports
Beatit 800A Peak 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter With Smart Jumper Cables (Up to 6.0L Gas or 5.0 Diesel Engines) Auto Battery Booster Power Pack Phone Power Bank With Smart Charging Ports

Pros: - holds charge very well. stayed 6 months in the car before I used it for the first time and it was a 97% charge - extremely easy to use - compact form factor and feels very solid

Cons: Not really a con but maybe include in the instructions to wait about 30-45 seconds after connecting it to the battery and before trying to start the car. The car charger is a bit slow to charge it. Just use the outlet charger at home for faster charging.

Overall Review: This portable car jump starter is simply awesome and it paid itself off the other day. I got it on sale but didn't really need it right away. It stayed in the car for about 6 months and was at 97% when I had to use it for the first time. My car battery is 6 years old and the other day my engine couldn't start at the gas station... I pulled out this bad boy and jump started my car without any issues. It went down from 97% to 60% so I suppose I could still use it 1-2 more times if needed before it was drained out completely... Charged it and it's back in the trunk! Highly recommended!

DIYPC RGB White DATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case

DIYPC Gamemax-W-RGB White Dual USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with Build-in 3 x RGB LED Fans and RGB Remote Control
DIYPC Gamemax-W-RGB White Dual USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with Build-in 3 x RGB LED Fans and RGB Remote Control

Pros: - slick look and feel with awesome LED lights. You can control the color, breathing, etc... - great hidden slot for DVD/Blue-ray - good HDD drive sliders. - pre-installed bolts to screw in your MB - good air flow if you manage your cables correctly.

Cons: - a lot of the case is plastic and feels light/cheap - the RGB remote needs to be pointed directly at the lower front in order to pick up the signal - half of the top is covered with plastic - can't add a top fan easily and it won't really matter because of the cover blocking the flow

Overall Review: The reset cable is plugged in a control unit behind the back panel to control the RGB led lights. You need to find it and unplug it if you want to use the reset button on the case for what it's meant to be used. This is also not exactly a full tower case. I think it's more in between a full and a mid tower (dimensions wise).

MSI GT Series GT72 Dominator Pro

MSI 17.3" GT72 Dominator Pro G-1252 Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 16 GB Memory 512 GB SSD 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Gaming Laptop -“ONLY @ NEWEGG”
MSI 17.3" GT72 Dominator Pro G-1252 Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 16 GB Memory 512 GB SSD 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Gaming Laptop -“ONLY @ NEWEGG”

Pros: - top notch hardware - i7 6700HQ, Nvidia 980M, 16GB RAM, 512 SSD. Boots in less than 10 seconds and plows through any game you throw at it. - good build quality - yes, it is plastic but has a solid look and feel. - awesome sound - probably the best sound I've heard in a laptop to date. - customizable - the discrete video card can be changed. - great cooling - I can hardly hear the fans even when doing casual gaming and both the CPU/GPU remain cool. - great keyboard - you can program the back-light colors and use predefined effects. - nice mate IPS screen that provides a great picture and accurate colors. - the price-quality ratio can't be beat by anything out there! I got this monster for $1649. everything else that is with similar specs costs close to $2000...

Cons: - battery life - you can get up to 4-5 hours on battery if you're just browsing and about 1 to 1:30 hours max when gaming. - big and heavy but I knew what I was getting into - software issues. some of the drivers are awful! the Killer LAN driver killed the laptop all together with BSOD (kernel check failures and IRQ errors). had to remove that driver and now it's all solid. - mediocre track-pad. the two finger scrolling sucks (hard to invoke and not responsive) but I'm just spoiled by the Mac's track-pad. I always use a wireless mouse though. The area around the track-pad is a fingerprint magnet.

Overall Review: I can understand how some not so techy users can get frustrated if they can't figure out what's causing the blue screens. If you have your own Windows license I suggest you do a fresh install and put only the software and drivers that you really need! The laptop itself is outstanding - the software installed on it doesn't do it a favor! Those blue screens really frustrated me but I ran some mem tests, checked the disk, read the forums and managed to isolate the issue without having to contact support. Almost took an egg or two off because of them. The cons are really not that major and I highly recommend this laptop. It's worth every penny even when not on sale!

Portable Air Pump

This is a good portable pump. The only problem is that it arrived with a vital part missing - the air tube. The offered 20% cash-back and I'll have to find that spare part now as I don't want to return the whole thing just because of one missing part.

Newest TV AntennaIndoor Digital HDTV Antenna

The shipping info on newegg was stating 1 week shipping - the order took more than two months to ship. Could not cancel the order because it stayed with status "label created" for two months. I do not need this item anymore - found other (faster) solutions. In the end, the item was actually shipped to the wrong address... I would NOT recommend this seller to anyone and would probably think twice before shopping at newegg again.
