Pros: Great price, premium product. Mind blowing picture quality. The green of the fairways at the Masters was unbelievable. Put the blah colors of my 3 year old Brand "T" TV to shame. The 50" size was more than big enough for my tiny one room apt. On sale this was an absolute steal. The color, with the SUHD upgrade, even in 1080, is mind blowing. The greens of the fairways at the Masters was like nothing I have ever seen. The pictures off my PS3 are incredible. Go ahead and grab this. I went with the 50" because it was more than big enough for my tiny one room apartment.
Cons: If I can find a way around it I will NEVER again use the AIT shipping option. I read the several bad comments about them and figured they were flukes. Nope it took them an astounding 12 DAYS to finally get in touch with me to arrange delivery and 3 more days to actually get it to me, 4 hours later than the arranged time. The clowns who delivered it look like they just came from getting fired by Fred Sanford. Filthy dirty, sweaty, and smelly. I wouldn't even let them in to set it up. I took it at the door and slammed it in their face. THAT is what $99.99 extra in shipment bought me.
Overall Review: I have spent a LOT of money with Newegg but one more bad shipping experience and I'll be looking else where for electronics and computer supplies. Putting a HDD in a box that is three times to big and just stuffing in a couple of the large bubble pack bubbles doesn't cut it. I could hear the drive banging around in the box when I moved it around.
Pros: Low price (you know what that means), looks really good on the shelf.
Cons: Half the features are non-functional after about two weeks but I have kept it . Neither the seller (I tried to mention them by name but they rejected my review) nor Pioneer could be bothered to honor any warranty or return policies for this unit regardless of the thousands of dollars I have spent with them.
Overall Review: Spend a little more for a better, different, brand and pay attention to the bad reviews. They are there for a reason.
Pros: It is 5 feet long which means it exactly fits between the two connecters which come 5 feet apart! It features a perfect number of wires which means everything connects to everything else. Purple; my favorite color. Well, actually it's more like lavender but I'll let that slide. It has latches on each end to keep the cable from just falling out of the socket. Handy! They come in a multitude of colors to help remember which cable goes to what device. Cat 7 rating to further help "future proof my system.
Cons: The ends feature what are called "snag-proof" covers which, while actually are un-needed if you keep your cable runs well organized, they are great at making it almost impossible to release the latch in tight places. Thus the 1 egg demotion.
Overall Review: The USGA Open couldn't have been played on a worse course this year even if it was laid-out by S.B. Squarepants.
Pros: Moves lots of air and does it while being whisper quiet It's not extremely bright but it casts an interesting pattern on the wall behind my computer since I am using it as an upper back exhaust fan in my red NZXT Phantom full size case. Red case with all blue lighting and fans makes for an interesting look.
Cons: Cons? None I don't guess.
Overall Review: The only maybe is the longevity is an unknown at this time. I've used a lot of Masscool fans over the years (and not just in computers) and they have stood up well. The only time I have replaced them was when I would redo a project and needed a different style, color or size. I would usually pass them on to some one else rather than trash them.
Pros: Great price, Perfect quantity. Won't go bad before I can use them up. Every single one tested out at proper voltage. a great purchase.
Cons: Not rechargeable, Can't be recycled into pie.
Overall Review: Just another one of those terrific Newegg deals that keep me coming back for all my needs.
Pros: On sale
Cons: It's listed as a Micro 5pin USB to a USB Type A female. It won't work in my tablet which requires a micro USB for charging (too "thick" and the slot for the power board is too narrow) nor will it work on either of my phones. One requires a micro HDMI and the other requires a mini USB. Three devices and it fits none of them.
Overall Review: About as useful as teats on a bore hog. Too inexpensive to send back so it is now in a place of honor in my file 13. I hate it when "stuff" like this happens. After years of being able to order what I need and getting a functional item back from Newegg, it seems any more they are selling cheap Chinese junk that doesn't work more often than not and they make you pay that much more to return a non-functioning item. Sheeeesh!
I ordered two pair of clip-on CVA / CVB lenses so my eyes wouldn't burn after extended periods at the monitor. I ordered one pair of yellow so as to not make the screen harder to see in my darkened room. The other pair I order blue to use them outside. Instead I got a pair of dark green that was, at least, the right shape. The other pair was a dark grey that were shaped like a pair of glasses John Lennon might have worn. To cheap to bother sending back , as I doubt if they could have gotten it right the second time either. Newegg needs to enforce higher standards for companies with which they associate. Couldn't submit with- out at least one egg or they wouldn't have gotten any.
