Most Favorable Review

Just what I was looking for.

Rosewill RVHS5-11002 5-In / 1-Out HDMI Switch, Support 3D Output
Rosewill RVHS5-11002 5-In / 1-Out HDMI Switch, Support 3D Output

Pros: Small. Simple to set up / use. Batteries ARE included.

Cons: My ROKU player will not display at 1080p through this device. Had to hook it up directly to my projector.

Overall Review: So small and lightweight that the thick, stiff HDMI cables will flip the device over. LEDs are bright as another review mentioned. Another reviewer stated that batteries were not included, however, I did receive a battery. It was already inside my remote control with a plastic thing separating it from the contacts.

Most Critical Review

One serious flaw. Otherwise, I really like this case.

Thermaltake Chaser Series A31 VP300A1W2N Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Thermaltake Chaser Series A31 VP300A1W2N Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Most of this case is simply amazing. Numerous easy ways to route cables behind and out of the way. Easy snap-in mechanism for DVD drives. Slide out trays for hard drives. Hard drives mounted sideways with the power side to the same side where you can hide all your cables. The metal is rounded off, filed down, and then painted with a nice thick textured material that keeps you from cutting yourself and looks and feels great. Top and front panels snap off and on easily.

Cons: There is but a single con, and it is a large one. The tray for the motherboard sits a fraction of an inch too deep. This makes any add-on card not fit. Video cards, and PCI cards just can not plug all the way in with their brackets on, and you can't have them sitting in there loose with out their brackets on and secured down.

Overall Review: I eventually went to the hardware store for some washers to act as spacers to lift the motherboard up about an eighth of an inch. I couldn't find what I wanted in vinyl or plastic. I realized that if I got too thick of a washer, the shallow screws wouldn't reach the threads, so I had to get a set of 12 small thin washers. I placed a washer under each motherboard bolt and secured them back down. Then I taped the other 6 to the bottom of the motherboard's screw holes to hold them in place (this is all I could think of to keep them aligned with the holes), and then secured the motherboard down. This worked like a charm. I still detect a little bit of play left in my PCI slot cards, however, they seem to work just fine, and that's all I need. Knowing how to fix this design flaw, I would definitely buy another of these cases in the future, but I can't rate any higher if I have to rig it to make it usable. Don't they test these things? (Apparently, I have to use the word "secure" instead of the normal word one would use to describe what one does with a screwdriver and a screw... Oh, Newegg, get your mind out of the gutter.)

Wow, these sound good!

Pros: Price. Easy pairing.

Cons: No true "seal" due to design

Overall Review: I am VERY pleased with this purchase. I was just getting these to have some cheap earbuds, but they sound so good, I Maui just forego my wired headphones with the usb-c adapter. I mean, I wasn't expecting ANYTHING notable at this price point (<20 bucks), but I mean, I hear new details in songs I've been listening to for over a decade.

Doesn't look like the photo

WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4005FZBX

Pros: 4tb. Works well. I have installed so many games on Steam without worrying at all about hard drive space. Games load just as fast from this as they do on my SSD. My computer is about 6 years old though.

Cons: Another hard drive product from Newegg which looks nothing like the photos. Why post photos at all if the product isn't going to look the same. It doesn't take much effort to post an actual photo. See? I did it.

Overall Review: Overall it works fine but the failure to accurately represent the product in the provided photos makes me feel like I was sent the wrong thing. I definitely paid for the cool looking black one. Why does mine look like a normal old hard drive?

I goofed

SAMSUNG 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Server Memory Model M393B2G70DB0-YK0

Pros: It's ECC, but I can't use it.

Cons: It's ECC. Can't use it.

Overall Review: I didn't read the description thoroughly enough. I ended up with ram I can not use. I knew the price was too good to be true :(

Saved me a little money

Pros: Cheaper than going through the Windows store. Didn't have to wait for shipping.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Download the Windows 10 Crain till from Microsoft and create a USB installer. Install from that and then copy paste the code when you get the email. No problems with install. Probably the last painful install I've ever done.
