LaView LV-KDV0404B5B Complete 4 Channel Security DVR System Easy DIY Four 520TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras (No HDD)
LaView LV-KDV0404B5B Complete 4 Channel Security DVR System Easy DIY Four 520TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras (No HDD)

Pros: It is cheap and performs as advertised so far it has done its job perfectly which has been to deter whoever it is keying my car and help me catch them if they do it again.

Cons: Its "night vision" is a little weak and the quality is degraded significantly but the people who just see the camera outside don't know that

Overall Review: great product for the price

Most Critical Review

DEAD IN A MONTH

WD RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Certified by Dell) Bare Drive
WD RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Certified by Dell) Bare Drive

Pros: It was Cheap

Cons: It died in under a month and took 800 gb of data with it. RIP DATA

Overall Review: I figured the bad reviews were just a case of only the unhappy people writing reviews because how is it possible that a product could be so bad and still be willingly sold by Newegg who I thought for sure would pull it off the website if it was really as bad as the reviews say but apparently they are ok with being the place that sells hardware they know is faulty.

RIP

AMD FX-9590 - FX-9000 Series Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Desktop Processor - Black Edition - FD9590FHHKWOF
AMD FX-9590 - FX-9000 Series Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Desktop Processor - Black Edition - FD9590FHHKWOF

Pros: It was the fastest AMD cpu I am giving 1 egg for the year it lasted and another for Amd at least trying to compete with intel on speed at a more affordable price.

Cons: it Died almost exactly a year after I got it short life span CPU was pushed to the limit by AMD out of the box and like all bright stars burned itself up fast.

Overall Review: I have gone back to using my phenom II 980 black cpu although i can notice a difference in speed it is not so great that i will buy another 9590 i am considering buying another 8350 which my other computer has in it and is still going strong 2 years later but the phenom II 980 is doing a solid job thus far even with the many years of service it has given so no rush.

Great Card

XFX Radeon HD 7990 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card FX-799A-XNF9
XFX Radeon HD 7990 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card FX-799A-XNF9

Pros: Its a 7990 has a lot of power and is xfx

Cons: None for the card itself

Overall Review: This is my second 7990 and I have it crossfired with another one and I found it impossible to install the drivers with both of them in crossfire I thought it was a bad card but figured out that if I unplug either of the cards the drivers will install (I tested this with both cards) so if you have a 2 x 7990 and you have trouble installing the drivers from amd I would suggest that you remove one of the cards install the drivers and then install the other card again that's how I got it to work I think the drivers are a little buggy for the 7990's right now but hopefully the rumors are true and amd is fixing them

BEST EVER

Prolimatech PRO-PK1-5G PK-1 Thermal Compound - 5 Gram
Prolimatech PRO-PK1-5G PK-1 Thermal Compound - 5 Gram

Pros: I bought this to go on my new build and I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt this beats artic silver hands down no contest. It works so well I went through and changed the thermal compound on all of my other computers. I am experiencing about a 10-15 drop in thermal temps on the cpu which is amazing that thermal compound can make that big of a difference. With my h80 and this stuff my fx8350 idles at 13-14c

Cons: None I can find

Overall Review: I don't know why it took me so long to hear about this stuff

Great
