Outstandingly Incredible

SAMSUNG 204B-BK 20.1" UXGA 1600 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor
SAMSUNG 204B-BK 20.1" UXGA 1600 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor

Pros: I finally made the jump from my 19” CRT to this amazing 20.1” LCD. Right out of the box it was a delight to install and use. Flabbergasted upon powering it up my jaw bounced off the desk many times when it first lit up. Incredible images and so much detail. I was so used to the glare of my CRT and had to turn off my overhead lights when using it. My wife accused me of being a vampire because I was always working in the dark! LOL. Now I can open the curtains and turn on the lights because I CAN see the screen with extreme clarity. Eye popping colors, super bright screen, and amazing detail. Don’t put off making the jump from a CRT to this LCD. The timing is perfect for it and the technology is up to par. I see no ghosting while playing BF2 or Half Life 2. A great gaming monitor for sure! No Dead Pixels! Don’t believe what others write about viewing angles. It is great.

Cons: I can’t think of one con for this monitor. Although, mine WAS made in Mexico, and there is a piece of “material” about the size of two pixels on the lower left corner of my monitor. It is not stuck pixels…but rather a “shaving” of manufacturing material underneath the plastic monitor covering. Such a spot tends to draw your eye to it when a white page is on. I have contacted Samsung and they are shipping me a new monitor at ZERO cost to me. It is part of their defective exchange program. GREAT SERVICE!

Overall Review: There are so many self acclaimed “critics” of products on Newegg that one would think that they are trained professionals! Yes, it is possible to find something wrong with any product. For some people there is never a perfect product. Well, this monitor comes close to perfection in my personal opinion. Clean clear text, no visible ghosting, and bright screen. That is what I wanted and that is what I received! The .255 dot pitch size is amazing too. Using my 7900GT video card I turned this bad boy up to 1600 x 1200 while playing BF2. It seemed to lag a bit at this high of a rate so I turned it down to 1280 x 1024 and it works flawlessly. I am still in awe of the incredible picture it gives me that I am continuously bragging about it to everyone. My company IT guru is about to smack me cause I won’t shut up about how wonderful it really is! Buy One Now!

Caveat Emptor

Rosewill RCR-IM5001 - 75-in-1 Internal Card Reader Hub - 3 x USB 2.0 Ports / eSATA Port / Extra Silver Face Plate / Molex Power Cable - Fits 3.5” Drive Slot
Rosewill RCR-IM5001 - 75-in-1 Internal Card Reader Hub - 3 x USB 2.0 Ports / eSATA Port / Extra Silver Face Plate / Molex Power Cable - Fits 3.5” Drive Slot

Pros: Well, in theory, this is a nice piece of equipment. Loved the option of changing the black faceplate for the silver one. This matches my computer case. Installed easily. That's about it for the "Pros" section.

Cons: Where do I begin? After a very careful and proper installation I tried the: USB Ports: Failed. eSata Port: Non-functional Memory Card Reader: Non-functional Hmmm... maybe I'll try different ports on my motherboard... Zzzzzzttttt, smoke, sparks = FRIED! Fried my motherboard by an internal short in this Rosewill device. Much like another buyers report...instead of just this "7 in 1" device billowing smoke...my motherboard got fried. I was rebuilding and upgrading my rig after saving up some bucks to do so. I had just purchased a new Gigabyte motherboard, AMD 940 CPU and memory a week or so before getting this thing. Now I am struggling to figure out which parts are still good and how deep the electrical short went through my components. Ugh...what a mess I suppose it could actually be called "7 for 1" as it fried about 7 of my components for the 1 that I installed!!!

Overall Review: The twenty bucks that I spent on this thing is now costing me over three hundred. Would I do it again? Nope! I would have been better off not trying to get more external ports on my PC... I still love the Egg though. Just not this particular device. Buyer Beware.

Works Great

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBSQ
G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBSQ

Pros: Absolutley flawless as usual! I selected this memory for my new laptop and it works amazing. Lenovo Z565 laptop recognized the ram immediately. I re-rean my PC performance after the installation and it maxed out the RAM part of the test.

Cons: The only thing I can say is that I purchased this and 2 days later it was on sale for 17$ less... oh well! I love it anyway!

Overall Review: I switched all my memory purchases from Corsiar and OCZ a few years ago... Never looked back. G.Skill just works wonderfully! Highly recommend it to anyone that wants a good deal and great performance.

Excellent

OCZ Agility 2 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2AGT40G
OCZ Agility 2 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2AGT40G

Pros: Received this in record time from Newegg. The drive was well packaged and zero damage upon arrival. Fast as you would expect it to be. The read/write speeds match what the specifications reported it to be. I installed Win 7 in about 12 minutes with no issues or hassles. Fits inside my HP latop perfectly. Win 7 recognized the drive immediately and installed everything perfectly. No heat and zero noise is a plus and I'm sure that the battery life of the laptop is extended by not using a mechanical drive. The laptop is several years old and with the performance boost from this cheap upgrade, I won't need to buy another laptop for a few more years. The money spent was well worth the gains I received.

Cons: No cons to report.

Overall Review: This is the second OCZ SSD that I have purchased. My other drive is the Vertex2 which is in my desktop. I was so impressed with it I decided to try the Agility 2 for my la[top. The price was too good to pass up and they both perform incredibly.
