Pros: Size and price together make for one huge PRO, great design, great look, for what I paid for this beast, it's one of the best deals I've come across in quite some time.

Cons: I had to remove the top of my PC desk to accommodate this thing!

Overall Review: I was truly suprised. I was expecting perhaps a cheap or flimsy design. Not the case at all. It really is a beautiful piece of technology, and seems very sturdy. My trusty 8800GTX (also from the Egg) pushes this thing at top resolution through COD4, CSS, and all the rest without a hitch, and it looks beautiful on this monitor. The 1920X1200 res is awesome, but can be taxing on your system if you are running low end video.

Western Digital goes downhill

Pros: Capacity

Cons: Unreliable

Overall Review: Western Digital used to be my 'go to' drive. I built gaming PC's for many years. I have never had so many problems than with WD drives. From portable, the Passport series is horrible, to internal, had a 1TB fail on me twice. They are the big boys, maybe too big now. Disappointed.

Terrible experience

Pros: It's cheap, now.........

Cons: Unreliable, error prone, a disaster.

Overall Review: I took a picture of this HD in the trash can, in pieces, that was to be my full review, but I guess you cannot submit pictures here. I have had nothing but trouble with this and other WD drives lately. Used to swear by them. No more.

Fantabulous

SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card SXX5701280D5NM

Pros: Installed into my Thermaltake Armor case in about 5 minutes. It replaced a XFX GTX 260, which I also purchased from Newegg (great card also). But this 570 wipes the floor with the older 260, which I expected. But wow, it really is a sight to behold. With the performance of this card I just don't see the need for me to pay $150 or more extra for the 580. Runs cooler than the 260 too, stress tests only brought it up to 65' max. MSI Afterburner is an excellent monitoring tool, works on all brands as far as I can tell.

Cons: None at this time

Perfect!

BYTECC HMSAVER HDMI Saver, Male to Female 90 Degrees
BYTECC HMSAVER HDMI Saver, Male to Female 90 Degrees

Pros: My tv has most of the connectors going directly into the back of the tv. When I mounted the tv on the wall, there was no room for the HDMI cables, they were actualy what was resting against the wall, putting alot of pressure on them. With these, I have plenty of clearance, they saved the day for my installation. Nice tight connection that seemed to "snap" in too.

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: How do they expect you to wall mount these huge tv's with no clearance behind the tv and the connectors straight out?
