Most Favorable Review

Nice chair at a good price.

BestMassage High Back Leather Executive Office Desk Task Computer Chair w/Metal Base - Black
BestMassage High Back Leather Executive Office Desk Task Computer Chair w/Metal Base - Black

Pros: * Shipped and arrived rather quick. Well packed. * Easy to assemble. Comes with tool, instructions and extra fasteners. Assemble in 40 minutes or less. * Nice metal base, rolls easy * Wide seating area for my big posterior * Good design on seat. For a big guy like me it doesn't squish your hips in. My last two chairs I needed an additional chair pad to avoid sciatic discomfort. * Good chair for those that sit a couple of hours or more.

Cons: * Has a little play in tilt back lock. With the chair back locked, the chair will still rock back about an inch. Not a problem if you are sitting still, but noticeable if you are moving around.

Overall Review: * I was looking for a replacement chair at a good price. This chair definitely fits my requirements. * Although the seat is comfortable, additional padding in the seat would have added to the comfort. I'm just afraid in time the existing padding will compress as it has done on other chairs that I've owned. Hopefully not.

Most Critical Review

Great Upgrade for an older case, but cables are too short.

Front 4 x USB3.0 Port and HD Audio Ports (Black)
Front 4 x USB3.0 Port and HD Audio Ports (Black)

Pros: * Quick and fast upgrade for an older case. * Easy front access to USB 3 and audio ports. * Color blends right in with my existing tower color.

Cons: * Audio cable too short, should be 6 to 8 inches longer.

Overall Review: I had upgraded my Thermaltake Armor full tower case with a new motherboard. The older tower's header panel didn't fully support the HD audio of the new motherboard so my headphones were no longer working. Since the USB ports on the tower were only USB 2, additional USB 3 ports were needed as well. My intent was to install the Silverstone SST-FP32B-E in the top 3.5" bay which also has the panel for my power and reset buttons. In unpacking the Silverstone I noted that the cables were slightly under 24" in length which worked out great for my USB ports on the motherboard. The audio cable on the other hand was not long enough to reach the audio port on the motherboard which was on the bottom rear corner of the board. In the end I would up mounting the Silverstone SST-FP32B-E in a middle bay so that the audio cable would be of ample length to go up and over the graphics card with just a little wiggle room to spare. While it works, the middle bay isn't the most aesthetically pleasing for the look of a good computer build so I am currently shopping around for an audio extension cable. If you have an older full tower case, this product will do you good if a header panel upgrade is need, but double check your cable routing first.

A classic upgrade

DOOM - Includes All DLC [Online Game Code]
DOOM - Includes All DLC [Online Game Code]

Pros: * A modern day upgrade to a classic game. * Improved graphics and robust game play over the original. * Good story line with lots of things to kill. * Game code promptly sent after purchase. * Game downloaded in 10 to 12 hours @ 10 Mbps. Couldn't be more specific as I went to bed and let it run. LOL * Ability to replenish health with a monster kill. Useful when combating a mob. * Can't beat the current pricing with promo code for the download version. Costs more to go to Micky D's for a burger and shake. Nice work Newegg !!

Cons: * Steam, knocked a egg off for that. Need I say more. * Gobs of monsters to kill at any skill level. I generally play a new game a couple of times starting with the lowest skill level and then work my way up. The "please don't hurt me"level went a little over board with the amount of monsters in the herd in my opinion. Those kind of numbers I would have expected in a higher skill level. But hey..... it's DOOM.

Overall Review: I always enjoyed playing DOOM in the past, but unfortunately DOOM and DOOM II aren't playable on a modern computer system. Nice to see an updated version of the game. Given the current pricing this is a purchase that can't be passed up. If you love 3D shooters this is a great addition to your game library. *System: MSI X99A SLI PLUS LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 motherboard. Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 2011-v3 processor, G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 32GB memory and GeForce GTX 960 graphics card.

Easy to use software for filing Federal and State Tax Returns

H&R BLOCK Tax Software Deluxe + State 2019
H&R BLOCK Tax Software Deluxe + State 2019

Pros: * Easy to use program for Federal and State tax returns. * Very competitive pricing over the competition. * Installation is quick and easy. Make note during install of the second 8 character key it provides. That key will be used later in the install process. * I have been an H&R Block user for years and keep coming back.

Cons: * None

Overall Review: * Although I haven't started filing my taxes this year with H&R Block, I am confident that software will perform like its predecessors without problems. * Although e-filing is a nice feature, I see in the software's fine print that they retain a copy for their records as required by law. Personally, I mail my taxes in and lessen the number of copies floating around in clouds. * If the Federal and State governments are so concerned about reducing paperwork, they should offer a free direct e-file option and avoid the middle man. * Pricing can vary. In December I usually start watching my email for Newegg's Eggsaver pricing for a discount code with free shipping. And every year I get a great deal. Thanks Newegg !!

Inexpensive set of weights.

Weight 1g 2g 5g 10g 20g Chrome Plating Calibration Gram Scale Weight Set for Digital Scale Balance Silvery white
Weight 1g 2g 5g 10g 20g Chrome Plating Calibration Gram Scale Weight Set for Digital Scale Balance Silvery white

Pros: * Inexpensive set of calibration weights. * Weights are accurate when compared on new digital scale. * Design of the weights is perfect. They sit securely on scale. * Free shipping by Seller a plus

Cons: None.

Overall Review: * Free shipping from China has its down side. It took 27 days to arrive in the U.S. Midwest. The scale, also ordered from China on the same day arrived in 10 days. Seller was prompt in answering my concerns about delivery.

Inexpensive scale that is accurate for my purposes

5000g/1g 5kg Digital Kitchen Food Diet Postal Scale
5000g/1g 5kg Digital Kitchen Food Diet Postal Scale

Pros: * Inexpensive digital scale that is easy to use. * Easy to read display that quickly shows weight of item. * Includes instruction sheet for use. * Scale can be calibrated if needed. * Easy to clean finish and compact size for storage. * Accurate weight measure during my testing. * Can calculate tare weights when used with a container. * Free shipping by Seller a plus. Arrived in 10 days (US Midwest) * Has good reviews from previous purchasers.

Cons: * Only thing I found so far is that it will not read a 1 gram weight. 2 grams and above it accurately reports the correct weight. I have not tried to calibrate the scale as I have no need for weighing 1 gram items.

Overall Review: * I was looking for a inexpensive digital scale (that could be calibrated) to double check my postage when mailing items. I often have to re-mail correspondence to my daughter away at school. This product fulfills that need. At time of purchase I also brought an set of calibration weights (no need having a scale that isn't accurate). With the exception of the 1 gram weight, this scale correctly reads the 2g, 5g 10g and 20g weights. * Batteries are not included, but for the price of the scale with free shipping I ain't complaining.

Not the best merchant for returns.

I had purchased two memory cards for use in an expected Xmas gift. When the gift was open I found I had purchased the wrong cards and requested an RMA. I realized it was my error and had no problem with a restock fee. Merchant sent me the RMA along with a shipping label with their preferred shipper. Cost of shipping exceeded the cost of refund. In fact after deducting a restock fee, I would have wound up owing more money. I decided then to just give the cards away, lesson learned. The next time I need a Market Place purchase, the "other" big on-line Market Place will be my first stop.

Very happy with purchase, but would like see additional shipping options.

Seller had a good selection at a good price. I thought the shipping costs were a little high. Since I didn't need the item right away, a lower and slower economy rate would have been better suited in my situation.

Good product, but shipping is sloooooow

I order 2 products on July 10 from two separate Sellers in China. The first product from the other Seller arrived in 10 days to the US Midwest. The product from this Seller arrived 27 days later. Since order tracking on the Newegg's site continued to show this item was still being processed / in packaging, I contacted Seller after 20 days. The Seller promptly replied and advised order was shipped and to wait a little longer. Other than the shipping delay, the product ordered is exactly what I wanted and needed.
