Cons: No rebate arrived. Although it works it has terrible selectivity. The sensitivity is there but the tuner is a dial like radios of yester-year and if you live in an area where the stations are jam-packed next to each other this radio does not function very well. The selectivity of the tuner is so lame that I can hear one, two, and even three stations at once. The one I am trying to tune in is the weakest one and to get a tuner lock I must ever so slightly turn the dial back and forth to get it the best I can. And then it fades and must do it again. And this is FM. As for the AM...whatever. It makes a horrible noise trying to use the AM tuner.
Overall Review: It was cheap, is cheap and always will be a cheap radio in every respect. I knew what I was buying. Got what I paid for.
Pros: Great value. Not a boom box setup but works great for my watching the Internet on the bedroom TV. A good bang for the buck.
Cons: Not for listening to music videos, not at any volume anyway. But that is not what I bought it for.
Overall Review: For watching movies and streaming video this is all that I need. Would recommend to a friend.
Pros: Great looking and quality watch for an awesome price.
Cons: None yet.
Pros: Inexpensive and effective. Ordered to check for temperature variations in the house. Found out the dog loves to play with the red dot. Great deal!!!
Pros: Have formatted many drives with this. Works great and inexpensive. Rosewill has decent tech support considering the price range of their products.
Pros: Wow. Inexpensive and low cost. Works great!
Pros: Great repeated for a low price. Have two of these and am ordering a third. My mother-in-law lives next store and she is on my network with no problems. Fantastic product for what you pay.
Cons: None. Just follow the installation notes for those noobs who lack networking experience.
Pros: Works great. Using DVDFab 8. Works just as well as Verbatim and TDK.
Pros: The best and the only model that performs at an outstanding level of performance. The only other that has served close is the MSI. But these just work and work.
Cons: Have had a problem or two but considering the life spans and performance level not to mention the hassles of most other brands when it comes to longevity that is part of the technology and its shortcomings.
Overall Review: Always buy these in pairs. If one has an issue the other is on standby and splits the work load. These are replacing my last pair that are 1.5 years old. They both still burn fine but one tray is fickle when it comes to the front button eject. Via Windows it ejects but manually it is sensitive. Have never had a DVD burner that has had the reliability of these.
Pros: Better than expected. Great buy for the money.
8GB G Skill DDR3 1333
Overall Review: Wish it had USB 3.0 on the front panel but knew that going in. 4 USB 2.0 front panel ports is great though.
Pros: Great bang for the buck. Had WIN 7 Home up and running in less than an hour. Great for general use and not intended for gaming. Will last for years to come.
Cons: None. If you want premium performance then spend the cash to get what you pay for and stop bashing this board. Too many people rate their tech abilities much higher than they should and make ridiculous comments that reveal their ignorance.

Rosewill 430W RG430-S12 Power Supply
Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel ATX Case
Pros: Work okay at times. But considering the price not a very good wireless N adaptor. Usually works fine if you are very close to your router, but every so often it does flake out (see below).
Cons: Drops to 1 Mbps after being on for a while. Have tried everything to maintain a reliable connection but that only happens when this particular wireless adaptor is within 40 feet of the wireless router. My other wireless adaptors do not do this. Purchased an AP and it has worked great from day one. Should have done that in the first place.
Overall Review: I have 3 of these. They all flake out after a while. Put it back in and it is hit and miss how long before I get a limited activity warning from Windows (which means the wireless connection has been dropped) or the throughput drops to 1 Mbps. They are a little over a year old and have been like this since day one but it is to the point that they are too frustrating to continue using.
Pros: Updating review. Rebate showed up after some months. PS still working fine.
Pros: Decent case with a small footprint for a microATX mobo.
Cons: Arrived with the faceplate cracked in half and the screw bag and its contents spilled all over inside of box. Will not bother to RMA because shipping fees will make this whole deal too expensive. My third bad EGGperience. Maybe Rosewill / Newegg can send me a replacement faceplate to remedy this. Will update review if it happens.
Overall Review: Can't believe it was shipped inside the standard box. It looked like it was thrown in the UPS truck and handled like a football. The foam packing was not made to withstand rough handling.
Pros: See review made on 12/21/11.
Cons: The computer case shown in the video and gallery pictures are incorrect on Newegg's website. Rosewill has removed the blue USB 3.0 passthrough cable. It has replaced it with a black USB 3.0 harness that terminates into a USB 20-pin connector. Had I only known BEFORE purchasing this case.
Rosewill tech support response was: my only option is spend $30 more and get Newegg item N82E16811147108. Well, duh, but that is not what I wanted. $90?
So for those of you that want to know what USB 3.0 cabling you are going to receive from Newegg and Rosewill - at least now you know your options.
Overall Review: Substandard representation of product by Newegg and no remedy from Rosewill.
Pros: Excellent DVD player that works with every disc put in it. Rather than getting stuck on substandard DVDs it simply jumps to the next good part of the movie. It is small yet efficient. Very inexpensive and versatile. Those reviewers who disagree with this review have defective units and should have returned them.
Cons: Generic looking and no coaxial input but other than that this unit is awesome for the price.
Overall Review: Best bang for the buck as far as DVD players go.
Pros: Works fine. If you want quality burns these are great. But your success rate with any DVD backup is determined by your computer hardware being sufficient, the quality of the DVD burner, and most importantly the program/software used to do it. By far the most important is the software. After trying many, and I mean many of them very few worked reliably on a consistent basis. The only one that I will swear by is DVDfab8. Try it you will be impressed.
Cons: None other than the price has not come down with the advent of Blue Ray.
Pros: Fanatastic player. This thing is extremely reliable. It blows away my previous player. I only use this to listen to mp3 audio files. The other functions on this thing are of no use to me. It serves it purpose beyond my expectations.
Cons: Cannot delete files other than via the computer. Just a minor irritation.
Overall Review: Accidentally dropped it into a cup of coffee (totally immersed) not once, but twice (the second time you should have seen my face of disbelief) and after drying it out it still works. Yes, a dumb thing to do but hey stuff happens. Yet, it still works like new. Battery life is outstanding - I use it for hours at a time. Recommend this to anyone who listens to audio files and needs 16GB of space. Holds all my music and is with me everywhere I go for a great price!
Pros: It works.
Cons: OCZ sent an email stating that my rebate has been refused. I sent in the invoice from newegg and the only UPC label on the box. It is the correct rebate form yet OCZ declines the rebate.
Overall Review: Last OCZ product for me. I build and repair a lot of computer systems and this is the first rebate ever declined.
Pros: Using this with ASUS M3A78-EM mobo and Kingston KVR800D2N6K2/2G DDR2 PC2 6400. This CPU comes with a great Heat Sink.
Cons: Not as fast as I anticipated but having dual cores will be a nice gain.
Overall Review: Love AMD!!! Have been using them since my first build in the 1980's (a 80286-20MHz). Great gaming machines and solid performance.
Pros: Very fast and works great. This is my 3rd one. Great performance for the price.
Cons: Firmware revision was SN05. Seagate has really dropped the ball on resolving the "bricking" issues. But they have at least made the SN06 revision available to remedy this. BUT YOU MUST GO THROUGH SEAGATE TECH SUPPORT TO REQUEST IT (NOT AVAILABLE VIA DOWNLOAD).
Overall Review: Although I find it retar*ded business sense that I have to perform a firmware update, at least it is virtually effortless to do so via CD-ROM. Using Nero (one of many programs) take the unzipped ISO file obtained from Seagate and burn a CD using "BURN IMAGE TO DISC" so that the ISO image will be bootable. After creating the CD boot your computer with it. The rest takes less than 2 minutes. MORE EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONS:

Pros: This comes with a great Heat sink/fan combo. Stock cooling is more than sufficient for those who do not overclock their systems.
Cons: Wish it had a larger L2 cache, but for the price this is a minor issue.
Overall Review: Great processor for the money!!!
Pros: Fantastic memory. Put together a new system. PC booted right up. Used this memory with an ASUS M3A78-EM mob, PC Power and Cooling 500W Silencer PS, and AMD 6000+ dual core CPU.
Overall Review: Can't beat the price! This particular RAM works with many AMD mobos.
Pros: Great on-board video adapter for general use. Plenty of outputs on this mobo and easy to install. Newegg is the best when it comes to PC components and customer service!!!
Cons: Bought this as a combo deal with an ATHLON X2 7750. The BIOS revision of the mobo was too old to support the 7750. Had to purchase another (X2 6000+) CPU to get this mobo to boot. Contacted Newegg and they offered an RMA but decided to purchase two mobos instead.
Overall Review: ASUS has made a lot of great products. Just took off a star for the BIOS revision being 1.03. Keep this in mind when purchasing this mobo with the new Phenom cpus and the 7750.
Pros: Own this one and the 610 Watt version in another computer. These are great and have a great price, too!
Long cables with plenty of connectors.
Overall Review: Would recommend these to anyone. Just be sure you are not buying too small of a power supply for what is inside your case.
