Most Favorable Review

Fast & Reliable

Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1339
Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1339

Pros: Put 2 sets in my GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 mobo, installed Win 7 x64 Ultimate RTM and off we went. No issues at all. PC runs 24/7 as my home network server. 100% uptime so far. Phenom II Quad 955 Black @ 3.6 GHz. Definitely well worth the $$!

Cons: None

Overall Review: There may be issues with certain Gigabyte motherboards, but not this one (GA-MA770T-UD3P)!

This is a Really Nice Laptop!

ASUS VivoBook S15, 15.6" Intel Core i5-8265U Processor, 8 GB DDR4, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10 - S530FA-DB51, Full HD NanoEdge Bezel, Gun Metal with Light Grey Trim Slim and Portable Laptop
ASUS VivoBook S15, 15.6" Intel Core i5-8265U Processor, 8 GB DDR4, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10 - S530FA-DB51, Full HD NanoEdge Bezel, Gun Metal with Light Grey Trim Slim and Portable Laptop

Pros: I waited to write this review because I wanted to give it a good test to see if my initial enthusiasm would wear off. Not so. It is smooth and quick, and does not get hot after extended use (my old one did get really hot). Admittedly, my use is mainly web surfing, email and using Office with some hobby development (Visual Studio) thrown in. I added a 256 Gig microSD card for additional storage. Newegg service on my order was superb. Arrived on time with an extra outer box to protect the already good Asus packaging.

Cons: some might say that the letters and symbols on the keys are not easy to see, but I found that turning the backlight off in a well lit room greatly improves the contrast. If you are in a dark place, the backlight works well.

Overall Review: Great bargain at the price! If you need a good laptop for general use or school, this would be an excellent choice IMHO. I don't play games on it so I cannot comment on that capability.

Great Upgrade!

Kingston 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 Laptop Memory Model KVR1333D3SO/4GR

Pros: Plugged right into my Samsung RV511's empty slot and works perfectly with the OEM memory. Inexpensive performance boost. Newegg service outstanding, as usual.

Cons: None

Overall Review: If you do work that can use the extra memory, it's a bargain. I do dev work in VS 2010 and VS 2011, so it's a big help here.

A-OK

LG DVD Recorder & VCR Combo RC897T

Pros: Records excellend quality tapes and DVD off our satellite receiver. Intuitive to set up and use

Cons: None noted so far.

Overall Review: Reviewers should be objective enough to restrict comments to the unit they have. Making comments like "all <fill in a manufacturer> are junk" just reveals bias.

Update on Wrong Card Issue

Foxconn 8600GT-256 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card
Foxconn 8600GT-256 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Newegg Got it straightened out! The correct card (8600GT as originally ordered) arrived today. As I said previously, you can depend on Newegg.

Cons: None. Card does what it's supposed to do.

Overall Review: Newegg went the extra mile, as usual.

Ordered 8600 GT Got 8500 GT

Foxconn 8600GT-256 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: At the price, an 8600 GT would be a good deal. At the same price, an 8500 GT is not and it's been returned

Cons: Got the wrong product, as reported by others here. There must be a mixup in the warehouse.

Overall Review: 4 eggs because I have faith that Newegg will make it right in due time.
