Most Favorable Review

Wow!!!!

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-KR
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-KR

Pros: Bought this for the $219 price. Well worth the current $250. I replaced a GTX 550 Ti to play Skyrim. The 550 could run it on Med..the high settings ran but slowed down in spots. This thing cruises on Max settings no problems. Ran Fraps and the FPS was a consistent 60, no dips. Also runs MW3 on max settings.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have an Antec 650 Green PS and it has the 6 & 8 pin power connectors and works great with this card. Also using a Core i3-2100 cpu which isn't top of the line but works great with 8GB DDR3. As far as the sound, it is unnoticeable to me...maybe in Shooters where it will max the card the sound would go up but I haven't noticed.

Most Critical Review

Poor Quality but Works!!

HAWKING HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender
HAWKING HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender

Pros: It does extend the range. Have a wimax modem in my garage for best signal reception and this in the house and it doubled the signal strength.

Cons: Arrived with all 4 plastic screw standoffs inside broke so the top cover was loose. I put two rubber bands around it to hold together and it has worked fine since. Probably should have returned it but I needed it right away and it still worked.

Overall Review: Not sure I'll ever buy another Hawking product after this experience. It was the product and not Newegg Shipping. Shipping package was very well done.

Great Phone..Use Kitty Wireless

Palm Black 3G CDMA Smart Phone with Wi-Fi / GPS / Full QWERTY Keyboard (Pixi Plus)
Palm Black 3G CDMA Smart Phone with Wi-Fi / GPS / Full QWERTY Keyboard (Pixi Plus)

Pros: I bought this when it was under $40. Prior to this I was on T-Mobile prepaid which the price was ok but their coverage where I lives sucks. This phone has most of the features of phones that cost 10 times as much and so far it has been very reliable with long battery life.

Cons: None

Overall Review: If you get one, use Kitty Wireless to activate it for Page Plus cellular. They are fantastic and will help you with any and all problems/questions. They answer emails usually within an hour and they will port your old number easily. They have a plan for $12 a month for 250 texts and 250 minutes also. I bought an induction charger from another site (AM) for $5 and that makes it simple to charge. Plus all accessories from that site are cheap. But buy the phone here, Newegg is great in all aspects.

Excellent signal Strength but not Long Lived

Rosewill RNX-N180UBEv3 - Wireless High Gain N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b/g/n, (2T2R), Up to 300 Mbps Data Rates, USB 2.0 Cradle, 5 dBi High Power Antenna
Rosewill RNX-N180UBEv3 - Wireless High Gain N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b/g/n, (2T2R), Up to 300 Mbps Data Rates, USB 2.0 Cradle, 5 dBi High Power Antenna

Pros: I own 6 of these (4 at home, 2 at work) and they work great as far as capturing and holding a signal. Software/Drivers are great. Windows 7 will run it without installing software if you want to go that way.

Cons: One died just after one year which is outside the warranty. Just quit working one day. Hopefully the rest last longer.

Overall Review: Definitely recommended. One star off because one died while just sitting there.

1st DOA 2nd Up in Air

ASRock 880GXH/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock 880GXH/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Very nice layout. Has USB 3 which is a big plus.

Cons: 1st one was DOA..completely..never had a mobo do that. usually there is a beep or something. Anyways, returned and 2nd one fired right up so we'll see. The only con I really have other than that is there are no standoff holes for the back of the board. Just sort of hangs there. Might not be necessary but would it have killed them to put 3 holes in?

Overall Review: Have used ASRock Mobos numerous times and have never had a problem before so I'll attribute it to the one bad one in a thousand. NewEgg as Always was excellent on the RMA.

Works Great with USB760

Netgear 3G Broadband Wireless Router MBR624GU

Pros: USe with a Verizon 3G USB760 and it works great. Automatically connects to Verizon network when started. If it says does not support the USB760 (mine did when first connecting), you need to update the Firmware for the router. Get the NA version, not the WW if in the US. Then it connected fine. Read the manual, it will walk you through updating the firmware.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Make sure you set it up with the included LAN cable and not over a wireless connection. I got the recertified version for dirt cheap and what a buy. Also, if using the USB760, you may want an external antenna. I got one at a verizon store with the adapter cable and it added two bars to my signal. The wireless G also works well in the house.
