Most Favorable Review

I really tried...

SAMSUNG 226BW 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor
SAMSUNG 226BW 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor

Pros: I actually tried to justify getting, 1) Cheaper upgrade, 2) Keeping my existing... I've been on the sidelines for sometime now, reading every review from this site, and others and even considered going with another higher quality 19' LCD "upgrade." All this was triggered from having seen what a favorite game looked like on a 22'. This deliberation process ended when I saw what it actually looked like when I went to a big box store this week,.. Even compared to the higher quality with the shinny coating deal on the 19' NxC I was contemplating, this monitor looked,.. well, just killer! Finally having seen one in person, it was a no brainer. I hope this will help some of you, but I've taken the time to consider the Axxr, NxC, Vxxxonic alternatives and have seen in person that this by far is THE 22" to get - period. Viewing perceptions set aside of course, (I have 20/20).

Cons: None. Well, the price point makes this a value, but how about making it let's say,.. FREE?

Overall Review: Newegg, keep up the good service and value business model; you'll be in business and thrive for a very, very long time. Good work and love shopping here (maybe too much).

Most Critical Review

Card Died

EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: As many others have said, it was nice while it lasted.

Cons: After almost 2 weeks of ownership, it died yesterday morning. It's a good thing I had a spare card.

Super value.

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler

Pros: Quiet, cool.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: Influenced by the reviews, and the price, I ordered it, installed it and I am glad I did. It's a nice heat sink - keeps it cool and it's quiet as my last cooler at more than double the cost. The only con that I can think of: the PC is so quiet now, the only fan I can hear is Corsair PS fan... nope, not spending another bundle to replace that recent upgrade.

Good purchase.

EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Stable, fast, quiet.

Cons: As everyone says, it's a large card. It barely fit inside my mid-size case. Then again, it is what it is.

Overall Review: For me, this was the right one to get. Right price point comparing the market offerings; worth the $ over the GTS 250, been happy with eVGA and Newegg - stuck with the known combo, happy with purchase.

Fast, quiet, good price.

Pros: About to order another one. Popped it in using the supplied SATA cable, booted up, started burning right away. No fuss. Fast seek time, quiet, has nice quality feel.

Cons: Can't think of any.
