Pros: There was no compatible charging cord
Overall Review: Would not recommend if you need a charging cord.
Pros: I can't see any Pros for this keyboard.
Cons: Very much trouble. Keys would stick and not respond to being pressed. Sometimes when the keys were pressed there would be a response, but it would be delayed. Asking for help from Microsoft or running the troubleshooter for keyboards did not help. I would not buy this keyboard and mouse again.
Overall Review: Don't buy this combination if you want a reliable product.
Cons: It is advertised to be compatible with LGA 2066 sockets. However the manual does not even mention 2066 sockets and there are no instructions or diagrams to fit this cooler to that socket. Their phone support had limited help and said "use instructions for LGA 2011 sockets". The holes for the LGA 2011 brackets would not fit my EVGA X299 DARK motherboard without first enlarging the holes on the bracket. There were no instructions about the heat paste. Very limited instructions and poor phone support. There were not instructions to install the cooler into my Cooler Master Cosmos II 25th Anniversary Case. I had to devise my own installation. I will avoid buying from Cooler Master again. I advise don't buy this cooler if you need support.
Overall Review: I would avoid the Cooler Master Cosmos II 25th Anniversary Case. There are eight two wire cables with two pin female connectors that are not described in the manual for the case, and their phone and email support has not provided instructions as to what these cables are for, or where they should connect. No instructions for the light strip. Those answering the phone support have very limited information, and apparently no practical knowledge about this case. I have not found any useful support from Cooler Master and I plan to avoid all purchases from this company. I advise avoid this case if you want support.
Pros: Good fit, easy zipper,protects the paddle from dust and moisture. It is the equal of much more expensive cases.
Cons: No cons.
Pros: The aluminum body is thin, light weight, and well constructed, with a reliable, positive, on off switch at the opposite end from the LED. The LED gives a clear, bright, white, light with only one AA battery! This compact, handy little light has many uses and is perfect for the bedside, purse, glove box, or backpack. One or more lights will make a nice gift. I recommend this light, and I would certainly buy it again!
Cons: I have found this flashlight to be free of problems and I haven't found any cons.
Overall Review: It's rare to find any flashlight that uses only one battery and still gives such a bright, white, light. The all aluminum body has an unusually precise and sturdy construction that everyone will appreciate. Combined with a AA lithium battery I think this will become my favorite light
Pros: Not much to recommend this mouse.
Cons: Very "jerky" control of the cursor. It became so bad I went back to a wired mouse. It never had smooth control of the cursor.
Overall Review: I don't recommend this mouse and I wouldn't purchase it again. My money and time was wasted because I relied on Microsoft to make a good product, but that was a mistake.
Pros: They have promised a full refund.
Cons: There was moderate effort to get refund, but that's OK with me.
Pros: Very clear and bright picture. The curved screen is easy on the eye and decreases glare from behind you. I like a blue background for my desktop and this monitor and stand are attractive with blue. I have several Samsung monitors and this is the best one yet. Unless I find something better, I plan to stay with Samsung monitors.
Overall Review: I would recommend this monitor to my friends and family.
Cons: DOA! Drive will light up and I can hear it making a noise but not seen by Windows 7. Phone support not available, E-Mail support, you leave your email and they may return and may charge you. Worthless drive will do nothing. Worthless Seagate! Worthless lack of support. Buy only if you want a !100 paper weight.
Overall Review: Seagate apparently makes a lot of drives. Many of them are not checked to make sure they are working before being sent to customers. No way to get any use out of this drive. I will NEVER buy ANYTHING from Seagate again! Don't waste your money!
Pros: NO PROS.
Cons: Died completely Dead! Died completely before it finished updating Windows 7. Not even good for spare parts. I will NEVER buy another "Refurbished" Dell! I don't think anything is done when they say "Refurbished". Probably don't even try to turn on.
Overall Review: Should run on AC-DC converter with or without battery but this thing won't show a light or make a sound. Cold Dead. I would not try to buy again.
Pros: Light weight. Fair video.
Cons: Very poor support. Very sketchy single sheet from LSI mostly about what they will NOT do. Complicated and cumbersome RMA policy. Better check all functions as soon as you can. Don't count on any help from their (877 no). I would not buy from them again. Online user manual is not detailed and no video. If you want help this is not likely for you.
Overall Review: It's not that easy to navigate the user manual with the online manual that is not detailed, and has no video to show you what the sketchy online user manual says. Caution to check all functions as soon as you get it. I would not purchase again from LSI. I prefer warranty by Newegg.
Pros: None to date.
Cons: Download speed was <200kbs, and took about 35 min. with Intel 4930CPU, Cox broad band and 64GB RAM. Magix said "not their fault" Key sent from Newegg said by Magix to not be valid. Program will not open. Can't get key to date. So far it's worthless!
Overall Review: I emailed Magix and they said "our servers are working perfectly". No kidding? They refused to take any blame for the 35min. slow download that is the slowest I have ever had for any program. Their Music Maker rejects the key sent by email from Newegg. I will not purchase another Magix product. Would not purchase again!
Pros: ASUS previously made decent motherboards, and is now surviving mostly of it's previous reputation
Cons: One of the worst tech support companies you will ever find. Difficult to reach, not helpful, try to blame everyone else, rather than help you. Many updates needed to keep the motherboard functional, and they are difficult to find and usually sent in difficult to use zipped files and if you don't keep updated, the motherboard malfunctions.
Overall Review: Not a good company now! Take notice that Newegg is now not selling many of ASUS motherboards themselves, but are using third party sellers with only 30 day returns, and those can be difficult to find and get. There is good reason why Newegg does not want the many complaints they get about ASUS recent motherboards. Try a better company.
Pros: Well known name. Second Corsair power supply to fail
Cons: Failed suddenly after 1.5 years work. No heavy work for power supply SSD, 3T HDD, Asus X9-DELUXE MOTHERBOARD rarely used. Failed while downloading Microsoft updates.
Overall Review: Don't buy! Don't believe inflated Ads. Look for good long term customer reviews. I will in future buy another brand. I would not but another Corsair power supply because too many failures without reason.
Pros: None unless you want DOA and RMA
Cons: Far too many DOAs. Very difficult to even reach ASUS support. Frequently no person answers and you have to leave your phone number and hope for return call in next 24hr.!! Mine NEVER came.
Overall Review: Formerly made some good motherboards. Can't understand the decline. Notice Newegg no longer sells many of the ASUS motherboards but peddles them through 3rd parties with only 30 day return policy. Buying one of these boards is very chancy. For reliability look elsewhere.
Pros: 8 USB 3.0
Cons: Too many DOAs and virtually no help from MSI. Why not at least turn on computer with their motherboard to make sure it will boot up and the computer will work. That seems the least quality control could do.
Overall Review: Quality control should make sure every motherboard will boot up and work normally as a computer. Are their motherboards just make by a machine and shipped with no testing?
Pros: Review for ASUS X79-DELUXE LGA 2011 motherboard and I can't think of any pro other than ASUS was previously a name of the manufacturer of good motherboards.
Cons: Note no specifications listed. Not sold by Newegg. This motherboard formerly had many bad reviews. Now sold by other seller, no reviews. Why dump the other Newegg customer reviews. Impossible to get replacement from ASUS during Warrant Period. Failed after one year. Prev. 3 yr. Manufacturer was near impossible to reach and I still have not gotten repair or replacement.
Overall Review: There were previously many bad Newegg reviews for this terrible motherboard with many 1 and 2 egg reviews. Now Newegg sells only through 3rd party. Note the 30 day warranty and impossible to find if there is any claimed ASUS warranty. I've called ASUS support 3 consecutive days and each day had to leave my phone number and wait for promised tech support that NEVER came! I haven't seen any good news about a replacement for these recently defective boards. Don't know if ASUS will ever recover or not. I would NEVER buy this board even though $100+ lowering of price. Bad board and no support, is not worth any dollars in my opinion. I have built many computers with previously reliable boards, but don't buy unless you study the reviews from CUSTOMERS carefully. The tout many awards, but trust only the reviews of those who have built computers and used them. Send you complaints to ASUS and Newegg to help other Newegg customers avoid bad products.
Pros: Well known name.
Cons: I had to remove this program from my system because of many conflicts and many features that did not work. It was difficult to remove. No simple "Uninstall" button. I would not buy Nero Classic 2015 again. I likely will not buy any other Nero software. If you want to take a chance be sure you have the option to return it. The download often says Nonreturnable and Nonrefundable and I believe it says that for good reason. I would prefer refund for mine.
Overall Review: Please also read the other reviews, to avoid getting a bad product, or one that will not function as advertised. Better to do more than the usual amount of homework before buying this product!
Cons: Caused problems with my computer. Poor support. Difficult if not impossible to uninstall from computer. Many features require another !49.00 fee to activate. Investigate, investigate, investigate. This should be avoided.
Overall Review: Very disappointed. I spent over one and a half hours trying to delete the program, even going to clean boot, and it's still on my computer. Microsoft uninstall would not work. No uninstall to click with main program. After 1&1/2 hours trying to uninstall it's still on my computer. I would prefer my money back. I haven't used any of the promised features. To burn a Blu-Ray disc another $49 etc.
Pros: Never has worker correctly, poor reception, no help from support, had to replace it. Poor and dropped connections even from ASUS high en routers.
Cons: Poor setup. Poor and dropped connections. No help from ASUS support. Trash now.
Overall Review: Unless you can fix it by yourself, or modify it to make it work, I advise buy from another more reliable and helpful company. Don't expect help, replacement, or refund!
Pros: Dell name, not getting to be so good
Cons: Battery did not last until I got the Dell 620 finished with Microsoft updates. It completely died before those finished!! New batteries difficult to find and expensive. I suggest don't buy a used Dell. Will not run from battery charger????
Overall Review: It's cheap for a reason. No support, no return. You are likely to wind up with something that is totally useless, and I do mean useless.
Pros: Known name. Make many promises for product and support.
Cons: Try to get support BEFORE you buy! look at promised chat support that leads you around in unending circle. Do not buy download that is nonrefundable for good reason, because you'll likely be wanting to return it!
Overall Review: Very poor instructions and tutorials. If you want to use this complicated program, first try to call their support and see what your success is. Claimed chat support 24/7 is an absolute joke! If you don't want to pay for a private tutor don' waste time here! Many other editing programs are better, cheaper, and have 10X the support. Adobe is not USA.
Pros: Recognizable name. Good promise of support, but not backed up.
Cons: Beware if you believe any of their promises of support. Impossible to get phone support unless you pay outrageous price for inferior support. Promise of 24/7 Chat support, just try to reach ANYONE unless you want to purchase more.
Overall Review: Trying to reach support they lead you around in never ending circle. No Chat, Ever! Ads deceptive. Work on video editing then save program an return to find many changes you had nothing to do with. Buyer Beware!
Pros: Compact, Nikon generally has a name as a good camera, the external appearance is good.
Cons: The battery was VERY weak going from full charge to exhausted in less than 70 photos without any flash. The focus is not the best, with many of the photos slightly out of focus. I would NOT purchase again.
Overall Review: I have had very good luck with the Nikon S8000, S9300, and the S9700 but I would not buy this camera from this location again.
Pros: No internal connector for the 1394 plug on the front of the case. The 1394 cable is just left dangling. No separate internal USB 3.0 connector for the two USB 3.0 connectors on the front of the case so the USB 3.0 cable from the case just dangles in the air around the ASUS SABERTOOTH X79 MOTHERBOARD.
Cons: NO internal USB 3.0 cable from case on ASUS X79 motherboard. No separate USB 3.0 internal connector on ASUS X9-Motherboard, even though one is shown on diagram of ASUS X79-diagram in User Guide. No offer to RMA.
Overall Review: Read very carefully and then don't believe everything you read. Techs barely speak English. They make you wait too long, then have to ask someone else how to answer questions, or leave you waiting and hang-up. Terrible!
