Easy to use - great value

SAMSUNG SC-D353 1/6" CCD 2.5" 112K LCD 20X Optical Zoom MiniDV Camcorder
SAMSUNG SC-D353 1/6" CCD 2.5" 112K LCD 20X Optical Zoom MiniDV Camcorder

Comments: I won't put a whole lot into this. The features of the camera are pretty darn good considering how much it costs. We decided on this one over the SC-D454 due to the 20x zoom and decided that we didn't need the sub-compact size. When we got it we thought we messed up since it was so darn small and light! It is a great form factor, and overall solid quality and value.

Pretty does not equal good

HIPER HPU-4K580-MS 580 W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply
HIPER HPU-4K580-MS 580 W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply

Pros: Good looking - neat cable system

Cons: This power supply gave out after exactly one year. Good thing they have a 3 year warranty right? It took a month to get it back from RMA. They were very disorganized and so every time they said they would send it out that day, they did not. I asked for a tracking number each time and they always would say they would get back to me. Finally they gave me a tracking number and still didn't send it. (just printed a label and let it sit on someone's desk). Nice guys.

Overall Review: If you need to RMA this for some reason, go buy a new one (from someone else) and be prepared to wait. Everyone on Newegg will tell you not to skimp on a power supply. These guys spent the $$$ on making it pretty and put a junk supply underneath. Hiper is owned by Elite if that tells you anything

Pretty darn cool

GIGABYTE - 15.6" IPS - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700HQ (2.40GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M - 12 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD 128 GB SSD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (P35K-CF2 )

Pros: This thing is a great, super fast, laptop with a beautiful screen. I can't believe how thin and light it is compared to the insane performance. Battery really seems to last. Back-lit keyboard really is a nice touch. When buying a laptop in 2013, you want lots of ram, a fast processor, a bright, high resolution screen and an SSD. This has all that and more. Plus it is sexy thin. The black, brushed aluminum looks great except for. . .

Cons: Hope you like fingerprints. I am not a sweaty or oily guy as these things go and it picks them up at every touch. Windows 8 is WAY worse than I thought . . . and I expected bad. Has a weird bend in the middle where the DVD drive is that makes it not sit perfect, but that is very minor. The auto setting on the back-lit keyboard is wonky - dark room should turn it on, but it goes on and off when watching a video based on what is on the screen. Toggling it works just fine though.

Overall Review: I bought this for business because I like to have a nice, capable machine in front of customers. This doesn't scream "gamer" but is certainly more than capable of it if you so choose.

Works well +SDHC

Pros: Easy to install and lots of compatibility. Nice to be able to support the newer SDHC cards for such an inexpensive price. The Silver faceplate looks good in my Lian-Li case.

Cons: Doesn't make pancakes?

Overall Review: Great value. Rosewell seems to do a good job with bits like this. Arrived 16 hours total after I ordered with with regular Brown Ground.

Works great

DOLICA DC-NB4LA 760mAh 3.7V Li-Ion Digital Camera Battery Replaces Canon NB-4L
DOLICA DC-NB4LA 760mAh 3.7V Li-Ion Digital Camera Battery Replaces Canon NB-4L

Pros: I have not noticed any difference between this one and the stock battery that came from Canon for my Powershot SD1100 camera. Charges fast and seems to work forever.

Cons: May end up lulling me into a false sense of security since the battery lasts so long and I will forget about charging it before I need to take some pictures?

Overall Review: Shipped super fast. Regular UPS brownground and the stellar Newegg warehouse shipping department got it to me maybe 16 hours after I ordered it!

Very nice

DOLICA KIT1 3-in-1 Ultra Slim Camera Kit
DOLICA KIT1 3-in-1 Ultra Slim Camera Kit

Pros: -Case fits my Canon Powershot SD1100 perfectly. It has nice padding that does not make it too bulky but does give some protection / padding. Still fits in your front pocket well. Also has a nifty little inside pocket / slot / sleeve where you can put a spare card and battery. The inner pocket thing has a bit of velcro on it that holds the spares secure if the case is open. - Tripod is a necessity for night shots. Pocket sized for that trip to Italy and those night shots that you want to take with the Colosseum lit up in the background. - Screen protector was a surprise in that I didn't think I would like it or use it. It fits perfectly and you cannot even tell it is on there. I can be sure you could tell (and be mighty mad) if you scratched the screen though.

Cons: I dunno - maybe the white "DOLICA" stamped on the case. Got used to it though.

Overall Review: Shipped super fast. Regular UPS brownground and the stellar Newegg warehouse shipping department got it to me maybe 16 hours after I ordered it!
