Pros: Tons of space, great price, low speeds good for longevity and long term storage.
Cons: Too loud at times when running. My hard drives live in a Drobo on my desk and it seems like when it spins up, the new drive is 2-3 times louder than the others. Still not too bad, but just a little annoying.
Pros: Good design with padded ears and headband and good audio response.
Cons: For whatever reason, they made the mic boom only extend in one direction, so to use the microphone, you can only wear them with the mic on the left side of your head.
Overall Review: I owned one of the previous very similar models that logitech produced. I bought this model to replace that pair after stepping on them and while it feels a bit more solid, it isn't as good in some ways. Both models have good noise cancelling, but on the old model, the mic was much more adjustable. You could turn it 180 degrees for wearing on either side of the head and it moved in and out from the face a bit, allowing me to wear the headset half-way on to hear out one ear and still have everything function correctly. The new model is more comfy, but that's about it.
Pros: These headphones are great for every day use. They have extremely good frequency response compared to cheap store-bought ear bud headphones. I feel like I am really experiencing all of the tones that were originally present in the studio and the bass response isn't horrible. It's also nice to have a nice long cable so your MP3 player can be hidden away in a pocket.
Cons: Blocks out a lot of outside noises (by design) but the really annoying thing is the non-adjustable R-L split position in the cable. The headphones are designed such that there is a short left-ear wire and a much longer right-ear wire and the lengths of those wires are static.
Pros: Amazing processor! I can run all sorts of applications at the same time with no lag and have trouble even trying to max out usage of all 4 cores. Plays every video game I have alongside my 9800 like a dream.
Cons: None that I can detect.
Overall Review: Found out after the fact that the 2 core AMD processor I replaced was probably faulty anyways, so this was a gigantic improvement for me.
Pros: Great image quality for Skype, online video, or almost any other web video application. The audio quality isn't bad, but I usually use a separate headset.
Cons: Included software application for modifying the video is not too great. Does not work for Macs! (the reason is that the Mac version of this webcam has some extra hardware within the unit)
Overall Review: I used this webcam constantly for Skype video and also used it to provide video to UStream of a conference I went to, which worked ok. It's a great piece of equipment and I haven't noticed any issues with the refurbished version I got from Newegg.
Pros: Lots of power X4.
Low noise, and hard to even start to stress the processors except under a heavy load.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: This processor is wonderful and is much better than my old AMD 3600+ X2. Tons of speed and barely any processing hold-ups anymore. I used to be able to kill the processor with things like HD video, but this one powers on through and does protein folding simultaneously!
Pros: This remote did start off working exactly as advertised. It is able to control multiple devices with the push of one button and most of the buttons are easy to press.
Cons: The buttons near the screen are two small and not easy to press, but the major issue for me was that I bought it from Newegg refurbished. They obviously never caught the refurb issue, which is a faulty "Volume Up" button, so I have a great remote that won't turn up the volume (kind of a primary function).
Overall Review: I purchased this remote for my grandfather to make his AV equipment easier to operate, but wasn't able to come up to help him with setup for about 2 months. By the time I had worked out the setup, we figured out that the "Volume Up" button refuses to output any IR signal. After consulting with a Newegg rep, I was informed repeatedly that it was out of their warranty period and to talk to Logitech. So, I'm sorry Newegg but I am bashing you on this review for NO customer service on the remote YOU sold me as a refurb. If I broke it, I would buy a new one, but YOU broke it, so you need to pony up the new remote please. Be aware of any future "Sales" on these remotes. Nonetheless, I still like what Newegg does, just not in this case.
Pros: Does an excellent job and even comes with a velcro tie to keep it organized.
Just as nice as the original HP adapter at a very good price.
Overall Review: Bought this when my original adapter broke after 3 years' heavy use. It has worked great so far!
Pros: The Eee PC is a great miniature laptop and the included version of linux works extremely well. The battery life is pretty good, the screen is excellent (I have played some movies and they look good) and on the 701 series the sound is excellent for the size of the device.
Cons: The wireless setup in the linux that is included is a bit iffy. A lot of times you have to manually connect to networks, which might take 15 minutes. The placement of the shift key is also a problem, but I fixed that by switching shift with the up arrow key (instructions on eeeuser.com).
Overall Review: I may upgrade the RAM and possibly the hard drive (if that is possible) before taking it abroad. Otherwise it is a great notebook and it is fun to have people walk by and say "Is that a laptop?".
