Not Orange LED! All stock is the Blue LED Terrible Speeds, Low Quality Housing!10/12/2010 7:49:56 PM

Pros: None. At all. If you get a Blue LED version, it's guaranteed to be a terrible, terrible drive - the worst performance possible.

Cons: Contrary to the specifications, this is NOT the Orange LED model. The only stock Newegg has is Blue LED, and they are absolutely terrible drives. Write speed is a max of 3.57MB/s, read speed is 5.23MB/s. The housing is not put together well, with the Blue LED endcap breaking the first time I *gingerly* inserted it into my Sonata II's front USB port. Granted, super glue would fix this, but, given the advertised Orange LED bait and switch, I have requested an exchange with Newegg. If the replacement is also a Blue LED version, I'll just send it back for a refund. (Orange LED has great speeds, and is actually worth the money, while Blue is NOT!)

Overall Review: Newegg's customer service is excellent. This is only the second time I've had to call them for anything since they first opened way back when. I've used the religiously for all my tech needs, and this is the first time I've actually ever seen them ship a product that differed from what was advertised. Of course, they're trying to make it right, which is why they are undeniably the best, at the top with Ama zon as far as customer experience! Thanks, Newegg! xoxoxo

Works Well, 4th Core Unlocked No Problems!11/7/2009 6:16:06 AM

Pros: Rock solid so far. Unlocked the 4th core without any problems on a GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P board. Definitely an upgrade over my previous S939 AMD Opteron 165, which was getting pretty long in the tooth.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Newegg is the best. Don't let the haters fool you!

Not 4-4-4 By SPD As Claimed11/7/2009 6:13:08 AM

Pros: They function. Memtest doesn't show any problems.

Cons: The SPD is not programmed 4-4-4 as claimed. CPUZ and Memtest both say 5-5-5. I plugged these sticks into my GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P board and they did not register as 4-4-4. Instead, they are read as 5-5-5, which many others have complained about here. Also, when I took these to my buddy's house and plugged them into another DDR2 board, the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P, they also did not register as 4-4-4. So, DO NOT buy these thinking they are 4-4-4.

Overall Review: Newegg, as always, was fantastic!

Good board, Bad (gigabyte) customer service11/7/2009 6:07:03 AM

Pros: Solid board, lots of options, stable. Newegg is still the best, no matter what anyone says! :)

Cons: I needed the board immediately (work from home frequently) - my previous board's southbridge died (5+ year old Asus A8N-E obtained through the AMD tech tour, with an S939 Opteron 165) rendering it non-bootable. I had this MA790X-UD4P board, a new 720BE retail, and some Patriot ram overnighted to me, which Newegg delivered perfectly! The new Gigabyte board came with a blank driver disc. I did not have access to other methods of internet access (restricted at work) for a couple of days (very, very busy schedule). I called Gigabyte, they said they would *OVERNIGHT* a new disc. When I didn't receive it the very next day, nor the following day, I called back, and two supervisors there claimed they _never_ overnight replacement discs - they only send standard mail. Huge PITA. Thanks Gigabyte! I know to never buy another one of your products again because, when I needed it most, your customer service utterly failed me, a first-time customer of yours. Way to go!

Overall Review: Newegg, as always, was perfect. Since Gigabyte didn't assist me at all, I called to ask Newegg to refund the overnight shipping and just charge normal shipping, because I could not use any of the products I purchased without those drivers (XP Pro SP2 disc). Newegg promptly refunded all shipping charges, which was more than I had asked for! Thanks alot, Newegg! I've been a loyal customer from the beginning, and will continue to be with this kind of service!

Cheap Construction, Great Customer Service1/7/2009 10:29:40 PM

Pros: *Good Voice Quality *Fairly Good Sound Quality *Good Price ***OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!***

Cons: *Cheap Construction

Overall Review: Well, I wrote an email to after my pair broke a couple of weeks ago (see review below). They (Abbie :) responded promptly via email and without anything more than my original email, had Newegg send out a replacement pair free of charge! They arrived today, and I must say that's fantastic, A+++ would buy again service. Now, I just hope these last more than a few months. The trick is to keep the adjustable tabs pushed all the way in, to where the plastic is thickest, so that part doesn't break, as it's the only stress point on both sides. Thanks, Rosewill!

Watch out - cheap construction!12/31/2008 9:53:27 AM

Pros: *Good sound *Clear voice communication

Cons: *Cheap construction

Overall Review: I usually play games without sound, so I rarely used these, although they always rest neatly on the top of my tower undisturbed. They worked well the few times I used them, though. On my 10th or 12th time putting them on (in 3.5 months), the entire left ear+boom mic assembly broke off at the fit adjustment plastic tab (the one that goes up or down). I literally went to set them on my head and it just snapped. It's only held on both sides by a .75" x .0875" plastic tab that controls the height adjustment, and there's no possible way to fix them. There had been no undue stress on the headset, nor had they fallen. They simply broke. You get what you pay for, though. $4 down the drain.
