Pros: Will eventually just stop working.
Nothing coming up on screen man this is the best one ever!
Cons: Might work? I don't know?
Will probably get dead pixels, then a dead screen.
Overall Review: I would STAY AWAY from this baloney. I am so disappointed in ASUS. Already RMA the first one because of dead pixels in center of screen, this one worked fine for a month maybe, then wont turn on one morning.
DO NOT BUY
My BENQ tho still working 5+years today, guess you get what you pay for.
Pros: Runs good, fast, no problems even after multiple formats and reinstalls of O.S. on it, SSD Toolkit is nice too.
Cons: None I can think of.
Overall Review: Been over a year or two now with this SSD and it completely kills my SAMSUNG SSD i got a year or so after this one. SAMSAUNG SSD gets read-error on start ups sometimes, not once have i ever gotten it on this corsair one. Had to change SATS cord one time due to cheap one but that's it.
Pros: Does exactly what it says
3 Months free(need credit card and such)
Only 19.99 a month after that, not too bad to be honest
Small, simple, and easy design to install/work with
Cons: Book tells you to mount antenna outside vehicle on painted/metal body, i suggest don't do this if you are worried are your paint job, I just used some double sided 3M tape and taped it to my rear plastic deck under my rear window.
Works perfect, no interference in audio, or any skipping/cutting of the station/signal.
Overall Review: Make sure you have a radio that is SiriusXM Satellite Radio ready
Pros: Faster shipping at discount price or free is a major plus on this.
Got for free from a card promotion.
Cons: I hear this is a little pricey.
Overall Review: Would highly recommend this to anyone that ordered computer parts or anything new egg might have often.
Pros: 256GB SSD
Great longevity supposedly
Ok software comes with it
RAPID mode actually worked amazingly good, and more than doubled my speeds on the performance test.
Cons: Needed replacement for this one due to various problems. Nothing negative on this one so far.
Overall Review: Try out RAPID mode on the software from the CD given. Improved my speeds ridiculously on the performance test.
Good amount of air flow
Nice non-blinding red leds
Cons: One of these do not fit on my top mount above the rear exhaust, on my Thermaltake Ovarsaar Ra-1, with the cover on of course.
Not enough to dock egg, just need simple modification, when I get around to it.
Overall Review: Would be nice to have this same exact fan but slimmer version for tighter spots.
Pros: 53mm drivers,
independent headset and microphone volume control,
7.1 virtual surround sound with a press of a button,
Red and black theme is really nice looking with the red leds on volume control,
Sound is a great upgrade from my Kingston HyperX headset,
7.1 Surround is not too bad either, good directional hearing with it,
Headset pretty light and stays in spot on head pretty good,
Ear piece height independently adjustable from each side.
Cons: None that i can think of.
Pros: Good color
Good view angel
Everything seems fine on this monitor
Cons: Nothing that bothers me
Overall Review: I would recommend this to someone that just needs a monitor, for gaming or regular use. It's not high performance gaming monitor, but it is just fine.
Pros: Works with PS3 Controllers!
Works with Multiple PS3 Controllers!
Cons: None that i know of, had to install a Bluetooth driver, from SCP, to the dongle itself to make it work with PS3 controllers, but that is it!
Overall Review: Install dongle software/driver from cd first, then, to work with PS3 Controllers, go download SCPToolkit/SCP DS3 Drivers. Use this program called zadig.exe in the folder zadig to install bluetooth driver to dongle(warning will make dongle only work with PS3 controllers, unless you can get the old bluetooth driver onto the dongle again). Then just install the SCP software/driver, hook controller up with usb cable, then unhook and you are good to go!
Will not work with fake PS3 controllers, like the one i got off newegg :-/
Pros: Dual channel
Only 2 stick for 16GB
1866 - Even though my setup i need to adjust the timings for it to work at 1866
Nice red color to go on your mobo
Low profile memory so it can fit under your oversized cpu cooler, like my hyper 212 evo.
Cons: Not plug and play 1866 for me, but with some tweaking, I can get it to work.
I couldn't get memtest86+ to work/test these, everything works fine, although would be nice to see the test.
Overall Review: Didn't remove any eggs due to memory not working out of box at 1866, a lot of memory needs to be set to it anyways.
Pros: Smooth, a lot of buttons, laser, fast/easy click, comes with tabs to stick onto bottom of mouse which enhances how it glides on the pad.
Cons: There is a blue led light on top of mouse for DPI that you can't change color or turn off. It blinds you easily with the lights turned off. Software doesn't work the best, can't disable some mouse buttons or even change the bind on them.
Overall Review: Great mouse except for software not working right.
Pros: Not too big/small pad for long movements when you need to keep you hand on the mouse/pad. Cloth, but not too thick or heavy, thin and light.
Had small ridges on the pad to help w/ the mouse movement, and looks/works great with Razer DeathAdder
The LED lights are green and don't blind like some blue lights companies like to use.
Cons: Paperweight w/o mouse.
Pros: It's a Razer, optical, 6400dip(only use 1800), amazing synapse 2.0 software, can calibrate to mouse pads/and has some Razer mouse pads in as a preset(had my Razer Goliathus control pad), feels more precise/accurate than my perix mx-3000
Cons: Hand needed for movement.
Overall Review: I wish the xtra buttons on the side weren't forward/back buttons, just buttons that simply did nothing but you could bind in games/ whatever you want. Not sure if software can do this, haven't tweaked much with it.
Other than that its perfect.
Pros: No need to adjust them like turtle beaches, sound frequency sounds a lot better and clear, pretty good directional/positional hearing, better step up from my turtle beaches, also no usb, color and style is nice
Cons: Since you don't adjust it to you ear's, it seems to move low on your head, not too big a deal tho.
Volume button is kind of hard to move, no big deal there either.
Overall Review: Bass isn't overused either so you don't just hear loud lows all over the place. Might be a con for some, but there is enough for me to be honest, no need to have something that sounds like 10" subs on your ears.
Some people complain about the mic mute button not having a notch and sliding easy, mine has a notch and doesn't slide from mute to mic as easy as other people make it seem.
Pros: 144Hz, color looks great out of box did not have to mess with any options on the monitor.
Assembles really easy with instructions anyone can understand, 1ms response, and for a 24" the screen is bigger than i thought.
My games, movies, videos, and desktop has never looked this good.
Overall Review: The s switch for scrolling through the monitor menu could be a little longer, but no huge deal there.
Cons: 2nd one i have received, after a rma on the first for being defective. Guess what? Same exact problem i sent last one back for, did you guys give me a new one? I cannot tell.
Overall Review: Last time i buy a part from MSI, 2 video cards defective. I best get my 300$ back i initially paid for it, and not the 250 they lowered it too.
Pros: 120m cpu cooler fan
comes with attachment for the 4pin connector to hook it up to a 3pin if you need/want to.
Cons: not indestructible
small enough to fit under my aftermarket cpu cooler
Cons: not plug n play for me, was set to 1333, just switched in BIOS to 1600 and worked fine.
Pros: Moves a lot of air
Cons: Kind of big, but depends on you.
I really don't care though so its fine with me.
1 of the fans started making a crackling sound, my guessing from the bearing or something. Just buying some new fans, no big fix.
Pros: Uses upto 16Gb, probably it?
Installed quick onto mi SSD, and runs great. Easy installation also.
Cons: The price all i can think of, why 250 for something that is essential for a pc today? Maybe i do not need professional but...
Pros: Fast, a lot of space, it is a hard drive what more can you expect?
Cons: When my computer turns the hard drive off after so long, it seems like when i go to access it or wake it back up, it makes a noticable noise, doesn't sound bad too me. Also when i goto access files sometimes it will stall for maybe a second, but i'm guessing that it waking up/revving up.
Overall Review: Nothing, except maybe if that sound is something more, other than that its great.
Pros: usb 3.0, 108dB on-board sound, Am3+, everything else?
I love this thing, you can configure anything in the BIOS(use to using HP computer so not use to such an open BIOS)
Also the customer support is unbelievable amazing, had some static/distortion coming through my sound, and they answered my question back the next day. Finally got to removing some software that came with it and BAM, perfect sound, (cant put o.m.g. in caps? that goes here) but yea o_m_g its ridiculously crisp and clear, and I'm only using 2 Genius Hi-Fi speakers.
I could even turn on AHCI controller for my SATA ports( i have heard of some MB BIOS not allowing that, weird?) But do you really need that enabled for TRIM on an SSD? i did the run command disabledeletenotify or w.e and both time with the controller being on SATA and AHCI, they were 0. So...?
Cons: What goes here again?
Overall Review: I actually do not like how the SATA/Serial ATA ports are setup, kind of hard to manage around, but then again you shouldn't need to be messing with that area once you set it up right.
Also the SATA cords that came with it fit loosely into my corsair SSD, good thing i thought only 2 came with it, not 4, and got one from a local computer shop, just a simple slide in, pull out one. Why are they so hard to make? maybe there is a reason for the clips on the cords, i have no idea tho.
Pros: Moves some air, and comes with a nice looking controller
Nice looking grill also with it
Cons: Broken led(lead,leed dunno) no problem though hooked it up to my PS so it just runs at full rpm, only reason for an egg deduction but otherwise get it
Pros: Fast and cheap,
Shield around memory,
Fast & Free shipping(4or5 days)and clean & nice packaging.
Cons: Owning an HP computer, as there BIOS is locked and will not let me change the speed to 12800, so its stuck at 10600! BiIOS being locked is what i read, so if anyone knows please lemme know. Besides that i would say no cons?
Overall Review: Need to build my own computer ><
Why won't hp at least let you change the memory speed?
Pros: Runs all my games on max without a problem, fan is pretty silent even at high speed. Stays pretty cool.
Cons: None so far
