Most Favorable Review
SYBA SD-CF-IDE-DI IDE to Compact Flash Adapter ( Direct Insertion Mode )
SYBA SD-CF-IDE-DI IDE to Compact Flash Adapter ( Direct Insertion Mode )

Comments: Seems to do the job alright. Only minor complaint is that the connector is not keyed, make sure the pin 1 locations line up. Newegg shipping was great as usual.

Most Critical Review

Great; but no Linux support.

Canon PIXMA MX700 2186B002 Up to 30 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
Canon PIXMA MX700 2186B002 Up to 30 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: This is a great all-in-one. Print quality is very good and it's faster than my older HP model. Scanner works very well also. The built-in Ethernet is big plus. As usual, great service from Newegg.

Cons: There is no Linux support for this device that I can find. Canon tech support also confirmed this. This is the only reason that I'm giving this an average review even though it works great on the Windows systems. It's my own fault for not checking first. Still surprised that Canon left Linux users out in the cold.

Great Low Cost Board

Foxconn 45GMX LGA 775 Intel 945G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Foxconn 45GMX LGA 775 Intel 945G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Low cost, on-board gige, on-board video, and lots of SATA connectors.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I'm really happy with this board. I'm using this with an Intel Celeron 430 processor and a bunch of SATA drives. It makes a great file server. Installed Ubuntu without any problems. I haven't messed with any of the overclocking since I don't need to so I can't speak to that.

Excellent TV! Poor Shipping....

46" 1080p LCD HDTV W/ ATSC Tuner

Pros: This is a great TV and the Newegg price could not be beat. HD channels are absolutely awesome. Non-HD channels are so-so. This is my second Samsung HD LCD and I would definitely buy another one.

Cons: The remote seems awkward and not that ergonomic. I always seem to grab the wrong end and it always seems to ends up upside-down. I don't use that remote that much so it's no big deal.

Overall Review: The shipping for this thing was terrible. My wife had to make mulitple phone calls to try and track this thing down since we wanted to make sure someone was home when it arrived. Simply put, every call to the shipping company was littered with confusion. Had we not been proactive I'm not sure how long we would have waited. Luckily once the local shipping subcontractor was contacted they cleared things up quickly and were very helpful. This is the last time I'll buy something that's shipped this way.

Pros: This is a great modem. Called up Charter with my the new MAC address and was online in no time. Haven't had any problems with it since I powered it on!

Cons: Absolutely none!

Great Hard Drive

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.10 ST3250820AS 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive (Perpendicular Recording) Bare Drive

Pros: Great price, good performance, and quiet. I have three of these and not a one of them have given me any problem. As usual the Newegg service was awesome.

Cons: Make sure that you have a cable and screws. You only get the drive and nothing else.
