RiDATA Lightning Series 32GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model RDSDHC32G-LIG10
RiDATA Lightning Series 32GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model RDSDHC32G-LIG10

Pros: Fast write speeds as advertized! Loaded it into my Canon T1i and shot an HD 1080p movie in a matter of minutes (no format necessary)...

Cons: None

Overall Review: Came in a protective plastic case... New Egg as always is the bomb daddy!

Most Critical Review

1 out of 4 ain't bad...

Seagate BarraCuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great price decent specs and warranty... 3 of the drives formatted and worked flawlessly... Newegg's awesome return policy... I never shop anywhere else (eat it Worst Buy!)

Cons: Spent 3 hours installing and configuring Server 2008 r2 only to have my boot drive go south............. Ugggggggggg

Overall Review: Could have been the bubble wrap and delicate handling by UPS that hosed the drive... The box was almost round by the time it got to my door-step...

Decent Case for the price

COUGAR Solution Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fan and USB 3.0 with 400Watt 80+ Certified Power Supply
COUGAR Solution Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fan and USB 3.0 with 400Watt 80+ Certified Power Supply

Pros: Easy access no sharp edges.. Steel thicker than most budget cases.. Plenty of ventilation... Power supply is a beast! Very quiet (even with extra case fans)

Cons: Not enough quick connectors for HDD's... Tight fit for mid ATX board but workable.. No front panel reset switch... I thought that was a standard feature.. Comes with EXACTLY 2 motherboard stand-offs (please!)

Overall Review: This is a decent case, make sure to order a set of stand-offs to go with it....

Great "Value" Monitor

Hanns-G HW-191APB Black 19" 5ms  Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers
Hanns-G HW-191APB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers

Pros: Wide screen with decent resolution and quick response time. Price! Bright screen sleek look. No dead pixels on the 5 that I was allowed to order. NEWEGG fast shipping!!!

Cons: Speakers are sub-par (expected). Very Short VGA cable included... Barely made it from the floor to my desktop. On monitor set-up menus are a nightmare to navigate...

Overall Review: This is the first semi-bad experience that I've had with Newegg... They shipped all 5 of my monitors separately in only their retail boxes. By the grace of the almighty they all were working after UPS got through bashing each one of them to death. Not a con because they all are working, more of what were they thinking??????????

Solid Drive for DTV H20 DVR

Cavalry CAXM Series 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA External Hard Drive - CAXM3701T0
Cavalry CAXM Series 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA External Hard Drive - CAXM3701T0

Pros: Whisper quiet and cool running drive. Easy hook-up. Included esata card for your not so advanced motherboard. Esata cable as well (saved me $7). Quick connection to my DTV H20 DVR rebooted and up and running in 5 minutes. Quick shipping and New-egg is always a pro!! Plus if you let the rebate company take $5 your rebate will magically be approved and sent to you in under 2 weeks! Sweet!!

Cons: As has been mentioned the blue light is intense!! Think Kenny Rodgers Roasters Seinfeld episode (only blue). Lights up the entire living-room at night... I love it!! (so maybe not a con)

Overall Review: Torture tested this bad boy recording 2 1080p channels while watching a 3rd pre-recorded HD show on my DirectV H20 DVR and it didn't drop a frame, even during rewind and FF operations. The internal drive on this receiver was notorious for choking in similar situations.

DOA

NETGEAR WG111-100USR Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Cheap... Possibly... Newegg rocks as usual with fast RMA and shipping!!

Cons: DOA and had to drop another $3 on postage to send it back so maybe not so cheap after all... I have had great luck with Newegg re-certified products until this order...

Overall Review: I want a job on the Netgear re-certification team... From most of these reviews it looks like all that is required is to take defective products and transfer them to Newegg for resale as recertified and pray no one take the time to ship them back!
