Nice TV...but be careful

Samsung UN40EH5000 40" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV
Samsung UN40EH5000 40" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV

Pros: 1) It's a Samsung LED (you can do no better) 2) Price...sort of

Cons: 1) Not network capable 2) Price...sort of

Overall Review: This is the first Newegg item I have ever purchased in which I tried to utilize the Iron Egg price guarantee. Turns out the Iron Egg program is not what it appears to be. Five days after I purchased this unit I found it at a local retailer for $100 less - exact same model. I submitted the form to claim my refund and Newegg welched on the deal. Only after requesting an RMA did Newegg offer me a $50 gift card. I didn't want to hassle with sending the unit back, so I let them treat me unfairly and I took the deal. Just be aware that the Iron Egg price guarantee is a come-on that Newegg does not honor.

Most Critical Review

Don't bother

MASSCOOL PCI Card, 4 internal SATA Model XWT-RC040
MASSCOOL PCI Card, 4 internal SATA Model XWT-RC040

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Does not work. The installation instructions are not accurate in the least. I then tried every driver on the CD but I was not able to get this card to work under Windows XP.

Overall Review: I work with this kind of hardware everyday and I have to say this is the most disappointing piece of hardware I have encountered in quite some time. I will require Newegg to RMA this without charging me a restocking fee. It's that bad.

Good...for awhile

Kingston 64GB DataTraveler SE9 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (DTSE9H/64GB)
Kingston 64GB DataTraveler SE9 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (DTSE9H/64GB)

Pros: Kingston name

Cons: Like any flash drive, it can only be written to so many times before it become inaccessible.

Overall Review: All flash drives suffer from this. I put GB of music on it to enjoy in my car. After a week I formatted thr drive to start over. Now my car doesn't recognize the drive. This is the third drive this has happened to in a month for me.

Unbelievable!

EXPO Dry-erase Markers Fine Point Nontoxic 4/PK Assorted 86674K
EXPO Dry-erase Markers Fine Point Nontoxic 4/PK Assorted 86674K

Pros: The marker with the red label writes in red. The marker with the blue label writes in blue. The marker with the black label writes in black. The marker with the green label writes in green. This is brilliant! The person who thought of this must be a genius. How could someone coordinate all the thinking for this product to arrive at such an elegant design?

Cons: I wish they smelled like a baby after a bath.

Gotta love magenta

Perfect in every way

Macally Black Adjustable Automobile Cup Holder Mount for Cell Phones, Smartphones, GPS and PDA MCUPMP
Macally Black Adjustable Automobile Cup Holder Mount for Cell Phones, Smartphones, GPS and PDA MCUPMP

Pros: Easy to install and adjust; Fits every cup holder I've tried it in; Very solid and secure; Incredibly convenient.

Cons: None. This is exactly what I was looking for and it's not cheap or flimsy.

Overall Review: All my cars are manual transmission, so it's very important to have my hands free but still be able to see my phone. Plus, I drive for Uber, so I have to be able to see and manipulate my phone at all times. This phone holder and a Bluetooth headset and you are ready to rock and roll, my friends!
