Most Favorable Review

Great budget CPU!

Intel Core i5-2400 - Core i5 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I52400
Intel Core i5-2400 - Core i5 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I52400

Pros: Running the i5-2400 on an H67 mini-itx board. With no overclock but a decent video card I'm pulling 38fps in Crysis at 1920x1080 on "Very High" with 8AA.

Cons: Can Intel change sockets a little more often please? I just love buying a new motherboard every 3 months!

Most Critical Review

Update to my 03/25 review

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: See my previous review on 03/25 for the pro's.

Cons: Get this, both the phone numbers listed on their main site and the lancool site just ring and ring forever! Try them yourselves: 886-2-24513000 & 886-2-24517373. I did get a reply to my emails finally, but they were bounce backs. How do you get a bounce back, undeliverable, email from a form that you fill out on THEIR website and do not actually send to them directly?? I'm having serious 2nd thoughts about this company. No one answers their phones and their own support form on their own web site is unable to contact themselves??

Overall Review: I've been a NewEgg customer for 7+ years now, this is the first negative review I have ever written.

Awesome entry level GAMING projector

Acer H5380BD 720p HD Ready, 3000 Lumens, HDMI/MHL Port, 2W Speaker, 3D Ready, DLP Home Theater Projector
Acer H5380BD 720p HD Ready, 3000 Lumens, HDMI/MHL Port, 2W Speaker, 3D Ready, DLP Home Theater Projector

Pros: 144hz 3D, HDML with MHL, decent response time, bright enough for a family room, & good contrast for the price. This projector will do true 120hz at 720p resolution! I know it's not 1080p but at 720p. even with a mid-range card. you can turn on ALL the eye candy. Most of the Xbox One games are still 720P and TV signals are still broadcast at 720p/1080i so it's a great football projector as well.

Cons: 1 yr warranty, not 1080P, no lens shift

Overall Review: I picked this projector up for under 4 bills with a promo code. For that price, this projector simply cannot be beat! The family loves it, even the wife was mondo impressed while watching GoT and the NBA finals on it.

Great CPU for those who don't like to OC

Intel Core i5-3350P - Core i5 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Desktop Processor - BX80637i53350P
Intel Core i5-3350P - Core i5 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Desktop Processor - BX80637i53350P

Pros: Ivy Bridge, 69 watts, quad core, stable, & cool.

Cons: Cannot be overclocked but you should have know this before purchasing it.

Overall Review: I wanted to take a break from overclocking for one build. Pre-OC this build actually scored a wee bit better then my last, almost identical, build using the k series chip.

Great budget board!

ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s, clean looking BIOS, booted up on the first try, zero issues so far. Runs Windows 8.1 like a champ.

Cons: Board feels flimsy as all get out! There were several times, like when I snapped the memory in or plugged the 20+4 pin power connector in, that I was seriously worried that I may have bent the board too much!

Overall Review: I used a P series i5 so I'm afraid I cannot comment on the on-board graphics.

Pretty good but beware of the description!

Incipio DualPro Shine Obsidian Black / Obsidian Black Case For iPhone 5 / 5S IPH-879
Incipio DualPro Shine Obsidian Black / Obsidian Black Case For iPhone 5 / 5S IPH-879

Pros: Looks like it will protect the phone pretty well. Minimalistic design.

Cons: The description states "showcases a sleek brushed aluminum finish" let me clarify, this case is PLASTIC not brushed aluminum! The plastic kind of looks like aluminum as long as you are 3-4 feet away but is definitely plastic!

Overall Review: If I had it all to do over again, for the price I think you can find a better case.
