Works like a charm - clean up old Bluetooh setups first!7/15/2021 10:16:22 AM

Pros: - Easy hardware installation

Cons: - A little more complicated if replacing an existing Bluetooth adapter

Overall Review: I bought this on a whim since I was rebuilding my PC and purchased a motherboard with an empty M.2 Wi-Fi slot. I decided that I'd fill the slot up and replace the USB Bluetooth dongle I was using since the newer device uses BT 5.2 vs. BT 5.0. The Wi-Fi6E is a bonus for me since I have a wired desktop that works fine. The hardware was very easy to install and the system detected it without a problem. I had already downloaded the drivers and installed them, then rebooted the system. The complication arose when I tried to connect to my Bluetooth headphones or earbuds. They were still listed as "connected" but they were in fact "connected" to the old USB dongle. I had to go into Device Manager, select "Show hidden devices" and remove the headphones and earbuds from the list. After a reboot, I was able to re-pair the devices, and all is well!

Perfect Fit!6/7/2020 5:19:31 AM

Pros: - Size: It fit in my case and allowed me to use a PCI-E slot that was previously inaccessible to me because the graphics card covered it up - Power: It requires only a single six-pin power connector, allowing me to remove an extraneous cable from my modular power supply and make my internal configuration a little less cluttered - Performance: It drives my ultra-wide monitor at its highest resolution and refresh rate through the DisplayPort connection. - Drivers: I previously used an AMD card, so the nVidia distinction between Studio Drivers and Game Ready Drivers is new to me, but I like the Studio Driver since it's more indicative of how I use my machine, and my research suggests that it is still high-performing.

Cons: None that I have discovered so far. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Overall Review: I am not a gamer, and I use my computer primarily for productivity tasks (document creation, email, Web surfing, et al.), so I don't necessarily need a discrete graphics card for the work I do. My PC's internal graphics system, however, has only a single HDMI port for connectivity, and my ultra-wide monitor requires a DisplayPort connector to achieve its full resolution and refresh rate. I had a discrete card that worked well until I needed access to a spare PCI-E expansion slot on my computer. The discrete graphics card I had was too wide to allow access to the slot, so I did my research online and all the independent reviews pointed to the Zotac GTX 1650 Super card as the one that would deliver good performance for the price and take up less space in my PC. Newegg had the card at a fair price and would ship it right away, so I purchased it from them. The card arrived a day earlier than expected, and the installation was a breeze. I was able to use my last open PCI-E slot, and the fact the card required only one six-pin power connector was an unexpected bonus that cleaned up my internal installation even more. It was a good purchase.

Best case I've ever had!5/12/2016 7:26:16 AM

Pros: - Case design gives me easy access to all components. No more cutting my hands in cramped cases! - Separate motherboard tray and top-level placement of motherboard make prospective motherboard upgrades much less daunting. - Removable hard drive modules make SSD upgrades a snap. - Sturdy construction - Supports Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler - Plenty of fan options - Desktop placement saves floor space for my legs and feet

Cons: I have no dislikes at present. I will keep this case for a long time.

Overall Review: - if you are a frequent upgrader, tester or system builder, this is the perfect case for you.

Switched to this phone from a Note 5 - so glad I did!2/12/2016 12:42:31 PM

Pros: - Works on Verizon network - just install Verizon nano SIM and turn it on! - Easy automated transfer of existing phone apps and data to new phone. - Clean Android 6.0 Marshmallow interface; no OEM or carrier bloatware. - Timely security updates - Fast performance - no lag time - Excellent battery life - I've gone 18 hours of normal use and still had 30%+ of battery life remaining. - Fingerprint scanner is great - better than the Note 5. - Very speedy charging using Google USB Type C chargers and cables. - The camera is sufficient for my purposes - takes very good pictures.

Cons: - Must take care with accessories since not all Type C cables and chargers are of high quality - bought spares from Google directly to ensure compatibility. - Get a case that covers the edges completely to protect the finish - a drop slightly marred the matte gold finish in one corner, so I'm buying a new case.

Overall Review: - Give the camera a second after clicking the shutter to capture the image. - This phone does everything I need it to do, and it's fast and capable doing it. Highly recommended!

UPDATE (1/5/2015): Sound card is no longer detected.1/6/2016 9:15:03 AM

Pros: - Excellent sound from speakers and headphones while it still worked. Kudos to Newegg.com for rapidly issuing me an RMA.

Cons: UPDATE: Sound card no longer detected. Card still has power, and I've switched PCIe slots to no avail.

Overall Review: UPDATE: Sound card had promise (see initial review from 12/25/2015), but it's not working after less than a month. Also, I learned from their tech support that the lack of automated detection and switching between speakers and headphone is a feature, not a bug. This is from their customer service rep: "The reply I received from our engineer is that the Devil HDX does not support the automatic detect function. The reason is because they believe high level users will prefer manual and personalized settings as opposed to an automatic preset setting." I'm returning it to Newegg.com for a full refund.
