SAMSUNG 913V-BK Black 19" 12ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 600:1

Pros: Bought 2 of these and both were perfect. No bad pixels here. Good value. These are my forst flat panels and I am still getting used to them, but the colors are brilliant and CRT's are now history for me.

Cons: None

Another CD reading problem

LITE-ON Beige 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 4X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache ATAPI/E-IDE DVD Burner
LITE-ON Beige 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 4X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache ATAPI/E-IDE DVD Burner

Pros: Able to read and write DVD ok. Takes 10 seconds or so for the drive to adjust it's speed.

Cons: Same problem as other users have had. This is the second unit I have received with the same problem. The drive has problems reading the Nero CD that comes with it. My old legacy CD drive reads the Nero cd just fine. I think NewEgg may have received a batch of defective units that are marginal in the CD reading feature. RMA'd it and hope the next unit is better. If not I will return and buy a different unit.

Overall Review: Wish I had read other user comments about this problem before I RMA'd this one. I would have requested a refund and purchased a different unit. I think the probabiity of getting a bad unit seems unacceptablly high.

Buy This One

NEC Beige 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache IDE DVD Burner

Pros: Bought this one after I got 2 duds made by Liteon. New Egg was great and gave me a refund ont he Liteon so I could buy this one. This one is perfect. It runs quiet and it is fast enoughg for me. I have burned 6 DVD';s so far and no problems.

Cons: None

Nice Fan

Thermaltake A2018 Blue LED Case Cooling Fan
Thermaltake A2018 Blue LED Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Has lots of extra goodies, speed contro pot that fits into an empty rear slot in your case, or you can control the speed with a temperature probe that sticks to a het sink etc. Also can be run full speed with no speed control at all, and has a speed reporting lead to attach to your MB fan connector to report speed to the system. Pushes lots of air at full speed. Pretty blue led's

Cons: rather loud at full speed

2nd one works

MITSUMI Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal USB 2.0 Internal USB 2.0 digital card reader with Floppy Drive Model FA404M BLK

Pros: compact design, and reads sony Memory Sticks. Floppy works fine, resonably priced, saves space so I dont have to use a 5.25 in bay.

Cons: none

Bought 4 this month

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 6K040L0 40GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA133 / ATA-7 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 6K040L0 40GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA133 / ATA-7 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Been using Maxtor drives for over 10 years. I hve some 10GB units that are 10 years old and still working great, albiet a lot slower thatn these drives. IN 10 years I have only had 1 failure on Maxtor drives. I bought 2 of these in December and liked them so much I bought 2 more. Fast Quiet and reliable. Be sure to use 80 conductor drive cables as ATA133 drives can be flakey with older 40 conductor cables even if you use them on a older, slower mobo. I found that out the hard way.

Cons: None.

Bait and Switch seller

Seller advertised NEW Western Digital Blue drives and sent used WD white drives and one was defective. I will be requesting a full refund including shipping. Do not deal with this seller.
