Most Favorable Review
AMD FX-4170 - FX-Series Zambezi Quad-Core 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD4170FRGUBOX
AMD FX-4170 - FX-Series Zambezi Quad-Core 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD4170FRGUBOX

Pros: The best value in AMD gaming CPUs. The newer Vishera 6 and 8 cores may perform better, but at that price Intel CPUs are better, cost of the platform itself aside. Handles applications well enough, some better than others, though for general computing the 4.2ghz quad-core might not be the way to go.

Cons: As long as it fits your needs, none.

Overall Review: A great budget gaming processor on a low cost platform.

Most Critical Review

Worked great for a little over 8 months.... then RMA purgatory.

ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Overclocked 8G GDDR6 Dual-Fan Edition VR Ready HDMI DP 1.4 USB Type-C Graphics Card (DUAL-RTX2080-O8G)
ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Overclocked 8G GDDR6 Dual-Fan Edition VR Ready HDMI DP 1.4 USB Type-C Graphics Card (DUAL-RTX2080-O8G)

Pros: It worked great for a little over 8 months... exactly what you expect from a RTX 2080.

Cons: After less than year I come home from work to find it stone dead, no signal no anything. One warranty claim later and I get another unit that is DOA. By the time I get that one sent back and another one in exchange I will have been without a card for over a month. An 8 to 1 ratio of months working to not for an $800 part is unacceptable.

Overall Review: ASUS used to stand for quality. The motherboard that this unit went in was a top of the line ASUS model, the second unit I tried both cards in was also a top of the line ASUS board just a bit older. The Monitor that plugs into this card is a top of the line ASUS. To say that I am a loyal ASUS customer is something of an understatement. To say that I am a deeply disappointed ASUS customer who may look into other brands is an even bigger understatement.

Good Mouse

Logitech G700s 910-003584 Black 13 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired / Wireless Laser 8200 dpi Rechargeable Gaming Mouse
Logitech G700s 910-003584 Black 13 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired / Wireless Laser 8200 dpi Rechargeable Gaming Mouse

Pros: A well rounded quality mouse. Maybe not the best Logitech has made but certainly competent. If you are looking for a mouse with more buttons than standard mice but don't want a giant keypad on the side of your mouse this worked for me. -Plenty of buttons without being "MMO-Style" in their arrangement. -Wonderful movement while wireless -Comfortable ergonomics are good for any type of grip

Cons: Too expensive for what it is at full MSRP. -Some of the buttons are nearly impossible to reach with certain grips. -The charging cable is quite bulky so when you have to use it wired it limits motion -Battery charge sub optimal with included rechargeable battery

Pros: Exactly what it says it is at a great price.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Having not had it long, stability and lifespan are the real questions.

Pros: It is everything it says it is.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Haven't had it long, lifespan and stability are the real questions.

MID M729 7" Android 4.0 OS Touch Tablet PC - 1.2Ghz, 512MB RAM, 4GB, HDMI, WiFi, Blue

Pros: This Android Tablet had all the features I wanted at the lowest price I have ever seen offered for said features. As long as you pay attention to what exactly this tablet is and offers, it should not disappoint.

Cons: Manual is poorly written.

Overall Review: The touch screen is resistive rather than capacitive and as such does bring with it all of its specific pros and cons. Con it does lower the picture quality on the screen a tiny bit because of the layer of gel on top. Con the screen is a bit easier to damage due to that layer of gel. Pro screen can be interacted with a stylus or in my case a latex gloved hand. Not having to take my gloves off at work just to hit the next track on my music playlist outweighs the cons for me alone.

I purchased a refurbished desktop from EPC for a friend so his 8 year old granddaughter had something to do her homework on in the evenings once a week. The item was listed as having 8gbs of RAM however when it arrived I found it only had 4. The computer was still a functional item that met what was required of it and my friend did not want to waste additional time with a return so I never followed up on it. I'm assume it was just a simple listing error and, as stated I never followed up on it so the outcome is certainly not their fault, but still hard give all five eggs.

eBestDeal4U Review

To start I would like to say that I am the shipping and receiving clerk for one of the largest online automotive parts dealers in the southeastern US. I understand what is involved in getting merchandise around the world in a timely manner. My purchase was processed, picked and shipped in a reasonable length of time. The merchandise itself arrived intact within the specified delivery window. The reason for 4 eggs rather than 5 is that though my product did arrive well off enough, it very well could not have given that it was shipped in a bubble mailer rather than an actual box. Again I understand shipping cost margins must be maintained however given the delicate nature of tech items, an extra $.50 could have been spent to ensure the product was not damaged in shipping. Still overall a very positive experience. Thanks for everything eBestDeal4U!
