Good Deal

SAMSUNG 245BW 24" WUXGA 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor with Height Adjustment
SAMSUNG 245BW 24" WUXGA 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor with Height Adjustment

Pros: The first plus about a monitor this size is there wasn't any dead pixels when I got it. It also has very vivid colors and is very bright which I like. The price was definitely worth it to me to upgrade from my 20.1inch; also a SAMSUNG syncmaster.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Overall Review: I'm not sure how much you can trust the review of someone who isn't listed as buying the item unless they didn't buy it from NEWEGG and bought it locally or something and then are reviewing it on here. The reason I say this is because I can't seem to understand the problem with the viewing angle the person stated. I've looked at the monitor from several different angels/distances and it looks the same.

Most Critical Review

I hate it

WD My Passport Essential SE 1TB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive WDBABM0010BBK-NESN Black
WD My Passport Essential SE 1TB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive WDBABM0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Great Storage Capacity......

Cons: The worst connector known to man.....I literally can not hold the HD in my hand and set it down without losing connection to my PC, the slightest vibration causes it to lose connection so essentially the HD is worthless to me, I have to keep it PERFECTLY still to do anything with this HD and I bought it to be on the go with me and my laptop........it's worthless.

Super Fast for sure

Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB High-Performance Portable External Drive USB 3.0 - STDA4000100
Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB High-Performance Portable External Drive USB 3.0 - STDA4000100

Pros: I have the Western Digital 2TB drives and I ran a test on these drives empty and transferring a big (18gb) file averaged about 110Mb for the WD's and around 210Mb for the Seagate's. Almost 2x the speed and 2x the size. Love it.

Cons: None so far, a bit bigger but what can you expect for a 4TB (3.6 usable) drive.

Good External

WD 2TB My Passport Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0/USB 2.0 Model WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN Black
WD 2TB My Passport Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0/USB 2.0 Model WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Well this drive happens to be the biggest amount of storage at the smallest form factor that you can get currently on Newegg that I know of. It is 1.81 TB fully formatted if you clear off the WD software. I like how it doesn't come preinstalled with Bloatware anymore

Cons: Like my 750GB passports I'm still a little concerned about the mobility of the drive due to the seemingly loose connection at the back of the drive. It moves more than I would like....My 750gb drives won't even work anymore unless i put downward pressure on the top of the connector. In essense I have to hang it off the side of my PC while holding it down by the connector for it to be recognized and to operate. I hope that this drive doesn't have the same thing happen. This was the reason I moved to the 1.5TB Seagate HDD as it's connector setup was a bit better with the removable pod for various connectors but they haven't moved to 2TB yet so I'm back with WD.

The days of Vista are over

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate

Pros: Destroys Vista in everyway

Cons: Price so soon after people paid the same to upgrade to Vista, makes me think Microsoft engineered the fail OS just to come out with the good OS now. We'll see how it goes on the next one if they are using this strategy.

Decent Cooler

ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Seems to be a decent cooler just unfortunately even in the Lian-Li PC-P80 case it really isn't powerful enough to cool my QX9770. I should have known this as the 9770 is a really hot chip. With Artic Silver 5 it's keeping it in high 40's idle running at stock which is pretty decent considering some people said they get mid 50's on idle on the same CPU. I was hoping with the impressive air flow of the Lian Li case it would cool a bit lower but for the price it's a good cooler.

Cons: Install is a little bit of a hassle, using the bottom support you'll have to remove the entire motherboard to do so. Was building my PC and had already put everything in then realized this at the end =(. Also mine came and the fan was out of place enough that it was whacking the heatsink and couldn't spin freely. I had to bend it forward so that it wouldn't make contact with the heatsink around it, not too much of a big deal but noting it.

Overall Review: If your running a mid level CPU this is probably a great deal for you but not for a powerhouse like the QX9770, dishing out the $$$ for a Freezone Elite CPU cooler which amazingly enough wasn't available on Newegg (the standard version is)
