WOW!

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 5.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 5.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: This sound card is amazing! I popped it in, loaded the drivers from the Creative website, plugged in my Klipsch speakers, and fired up some tunes - and was blown away! Incredible sound...no comparison between my onboard sound and this sound card.

Cons: NONE!!!

Overall Review: I never thought Tarja Turunen (Nighwish) and Vibeke Stene (Tristania) could sound like angels, but they do with this sound card and speakers!

Piece of Junk

WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Easy to install and worked right out of the box.

Cons: Just died yesterday after less than 2 months. Luckily my son was using it for a backup drive only. I have owned several WD hard drives over the years and never had a problem. I guess my luck ran out. In any case, because I bought it as a Christmas present, I'm beyond the return windo.

Good Monitor

Pros: Clear and bright. Currently not using base that came with monitor...installed via wall mount. Looks great and easy to use. No need to look at manual as the menu options are intuitive. Sure beats my old Gateway monitor that I kept going for 8 years by replacing all the capacitors.

Cons: None so far.

Great PSU!

Pros: This is an excellent PSU and Seasonic is one of the better brand names. I didn't buy mine from Newegg but instead bought it on Am*zon for the same price but with free shipping.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Newegg's pricing is not what it used to be. I highly recommend shopping around when buying computer parts.

Pros: Quiet No Setup Required Fast

Cons: The bundled software that Newegg included doesn't even load....just hangs. Newegg has been sucking lately...with pricing and now included software. May be time to look elsewhere for my computer building needs.

Second One Works!

Pros: Great price and great keyboard...when it works. First one had several keys that didn't work. Emailed Newegg and they sent me a replacement without having to return the bad one. Now that's service! Newegg is AWESOME!

Cons: Would have given 5 stars if the first one had worked. Newegg gets 5 stars!

Overall Review: I can't say enough good things about Newegg!
