Pros: The hard drive is humongous; fairly quick and extremely quiet.
Cons: I'm not sure why, but like others, the hard drive is only detected as 298.09 GB (UNFORMATTED) in my system.
Overall Review: The price is excellent for this hard drive so if you need a new disk drive, go for it. Be sure to check your system to make sure that it is compatible (mainboard supports SATA/II, supports a disk drive of this capacity), if it's not you should pick up a PCI hard disk controller as well.
Pros: I learned a heck of alot about SATA trying to get this thing to work. :-)
Cons: This card nearly caused me to RMA my new Seagate hard drive. I couldn't get any type of indication that this disk drive was being detected properly and needless to say I couldn't figure out if there was nything wrong with the new disk drive.
Overall Review: In the end I just coughed up the extra money that I should have in the first place and bought a card manufactured by PROMISE - do yourself a favor and do the same.
Pros: The ends fit snuggly on the SATA connectors. The cable is just the right length for my case.
Cons: I really haven't noticed and cons so far.
Pros: The screws are large enough to be fastened by hand but are not too large.
Cons: The shipping costs more than the screws do. How's that for ironic? :-)
Pros: Does what its supposed to do.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: What more can I say? Go for it!
Pros: The card comes with two SATA cables and an ATA cable (even as OEM). The card has its own BIOS. The instructions are detailed and well-written.
Overall Review: This is the first product that I've purchased from PROMISE and I'll definetly be purchasing more of their products in the future. This card is high quality and it worth the extra couple of bucks. If you're looking for an SATA(II) hard disk controller, spend the extra money - it will save you a major headache in the long run.
Pros: I have to admit that this is a great router. If you're new to routers and/or this is your first wireless/wired router you really can't go wrong buying this router for this price. The installation/setup is a breeze with the step-by-step instructions and software. You may need some time to adjust to the router's browser-based control panel because there are quite a few options and tools you can adjust or use. You do not have to mess with them if you choose not to as the default settings should work great for normal circumstances.
Cons: At times I can't find the actual router because it is so small ;-) JK
Overall Review: The range on this router is just fine and in my opinion exceeds the ranges for most wireless routers at this price, especially for an internal intenna.
Pros: Just as the two preceding titles in the Prince of Persia Series, the environment is awesome with graphics which make your stomache almost turn to see how high up you are at some areas in the game. Very fun to play. Nice storyline if you've followed the story throughout the entire story (from Prince of Persia: Sands of Time).
Cons: This final chapter in the Prince of Persia series is told great and everything but the game is a little bit shorter then the first two.
Pros: These speakers produce very nice sound which highly exceeded my expectations. The sound is easily adjusted from the front right speaker. The speakers produce really nice bass for their specifications.
Cons: The bass knob can be somewhat hard to adjust easily. The knob is located on the back of the subwoofer.
Pros: Once the sound card is actually installed, it can produce some okay sound.
Cons: As a lot op people have mentioned, the driver for this sound card is difficult to install. When following the installation directions I just kepot receiving blue screen errors upon restart, no matter what I tried. Going to the manufacturer's web site is really no help at all. I attempted to let Windows install the sound card by itself by connecting to Windows Update only to have my computer crash on me. The way I finally got this sound card installed is by NOT FOLLOWING THE MANUFACTURER'S DIRECTIONS! Browse the CD in a different folder then the one the booklet instructs you to and use a different installation application. I can't remember where on the CD it was at but it's on there!
Overall Review: I'm running Windows 2000.
Pros: The mouse is easy to install and the software has some neat features to help you to customize your mouse.
Cons: The extra buttons (on the side) are sometimes a little annoying because I sometimes click them on accident. They're to easy to click.
Pros: Superb and detailed graphics, incredible enemies, a very serene environment to play in.
Cons: The controls take a little time to get adapt to, but once you adjust to them you won't have any problems.
Overall Review: This game is very fun to play. I ended up getting so caught up in it I owuld play for hours upon hours. As I read on another web site which I use to help me decide which games to purchase, once you get used to this game you will find that there are no other games like it; this is dead on true.
Pros: This game has so much going for it. The graphics are extremely good. The storyline is interesting, especially if you have followed the Resident Evil series throughout the years. The game is significantly long with much many thrills and adventure. Also, this game doesn't have many 'puzzles' which require figuring out before being able to advance in the game. This chapter in the Resident Evil series is focused primarily on adventure which is a big plus in my book.
Cons: Honestly, there are none...
Overall Review: In my opinion, this game is THE game of 2005, quite possibly the best game out for the PS2 right next to the GTA series.
Pros: Many, I slapped two of these bad boys into one of my older PCs which had only 256 MB of RAM installed. My computer booted up with no problems, RAM was instantly recognized and I haven't had any problems so far. Needless to say, my computer is running a heck of a lot better now.
Cons: None, so far..
Overall Review: Newegg delivered top quality products at unbeatable prices, yet again.
Comments: This game is action-packed with some of the greatest enemies of all time. The enemies in this game are almost shocking. The graphics are so detailed and stunning, they exceed "Prince of Persia: Warrior Within". You'll enjoy this game, it is real craftsmenship on the developer's part.
Comments: This is a very good game! The maps are humongous and there are tons of missions (plus literally thousands of more things to do). There is a huge difference in the environment compared to all of the previous GTAs, in a good way. If you're looking around for a great game of this genre, I highly recommend this one; it will definetly keep you entertained for a very long time. By the way, I bought this from NewEgg using standard Fedex Ground Shipping and it was at my doorstep the very next day, thanks again NewEgg!
Comments: The keyboard and mouse are both just awesome. There is no delay in response time in the keyboard nor the mouse. There is a number of really useful hotkeys on the keyboard, and like another person said in their review this is a really cool product to use in the dark. I give this product a worthy Five out of Five stars.
Comments: I bought this so that I could have two hard drives in my system. Insta;llation went smoothly and I have not had a single problem with it yet. The only complaint I have (which is a minor one) is that this hard drive isn't quite as quiet as alot of other people claimed in their reviews, but I suppose it is quiet enough. Other then that, this is a very quick and stable hard drive, expecially for the price NewEgg is selling it for.
Comments: This is an awesome monitor! I switched from a 15" CRT montior to his one, and WOW! I got a great deal from NewEgg, arrived in only two days with standard ground-delivery Fedex, and it's a very clear monitor with vividly bright colors. Can't beat it!
Comments: This is a great DVD-R/RW / CD-R-RW burner. I have already burned multiple CDs and DVDs using this burner and have not had a SINGLE problem. Can't beat the price either, my recommendation if you are looking for a burner, get this one!
Comments: I don't understand what the other guy is talking about. I had a music CD and a game disk for PS2 and both were scratched to a non-playable level. I had tried other manual cleaning/repair wipes/solutions and they all failed. I ran the "Repair" mode using Memorex's product and now both play without a bit of trouble. This product is definetly what it appears to be so I give it a bold 5 out of 5 stars. By the way, first order off of Newegg and the shipping was so quick and the product was so great I have ordered multiple other items, thanks Newegg!
