Most Favorable Review
SIIG CE-MT1812-S2 Triple Monitor Desk Stand - Mounting Kit ( Desk Stand ) For 3 Lcd Displays - Black - Screen Size: 13 Inch - 27 Inch
SIIG CE-MT1812-S2 Triple Monitor Desk Stand - Mounting Kit ( Desk Stand ) For 3 Lcd Displays - Black - Screen Size: 13 Inch - 27 Inch

Pros: Holds 3 27 inch monitors Solid construction Complete with both port mounts and stand base.

Cons: Angles.... the outer monitor angles are lacking. not a deal breaker but I would enjoy more curve.

Overall Review: Had a local shop put a small bend in each arm to increase angle of the curve. This makes it impossible to remove the monitor mounts from the rails now but it resolved my angle issues.

Worthless

Krazilla Bluetooth Smart Watch for Android Phones - Black/Silver
Krazilla Bluetooth Smart Watch for Android Phones - Black/Silver

Pros: - It tells time at the push of a button.

Cons: - Very slow loading apps. - Apps require a SIM card to operate which makes the unit a standalone cellular device and costs as much as another phone to use - Charger does not securely lock in so the unit is constantly losing the connection - Screen is very low quality and the time display even looks poor. My old GameBoy Color has a better screen and thats decades old. - Sync software is mentioned in the included paper insert but the software is nowhere to be found on their site. This is supposed to make the watch operate as intended. The app does not appear in Google Play either which means it is not secure or does not pass App requirements for Google Play.

Overall Review: - Dont waste money on this watch. Buy something with a better quality screen and usable functions on a phone. - Never trust 3rd party software that wants full phone access but is not available from Google Play.

2/5 Bad right of the box

Arctic F8 - Value pack 80mm Standard Low Noise Case Fan Cooling, 5 Pack
Arctic F8 - Value pack 80mm Standard Low Noise Case Fan Cooling, 5 Pack

Pros: Pushes a good amount of air for its size.... IF it works

Cons: 2 of the 5 were DOA. 1 of the good ones is weaker than the other 2. 1 of the 2 defective units was warm after only a few seconds of being plugged in for testing.

Overall Review: Dont waste the money. Fans were shipped in a bag so it is very possible these were damaged in shipping. No matter how you look at it, 2 out of 5 being DOA destroys the value of the bulk purchase. I would recommend looking for a more reliable product.

Waste of money

PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 570 4GBD5-3DHD/OC
PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 570 4GBD5-3DHD/OC

Pros: - None

Cons: - Overheats to the point of crashing the PC when any recent game is played. - Replacement was no better than the original

Overall Review: - Complete waste of time and money in the end. The card needs aftermarket cooling to stay alive during games and that is just insane for this grade of VGA card. - I can not recommend Powercolor at all with the low quality coolers they use. There is something seriously wrong with a card not being able to even load a game completely before crashing the system.

Not worth the price

Corsair K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX Speed, Backlit RGB LED, Gunmetal
Corsair K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX Speed, Backlit RGB LED, Gunmetal

Pros: - Per key LED control - Soft but solid button press - Aluminum - USB port (But it also consumes 2x itself)

Cons: These are all deal breakers for me. The cost of this keyboard is far too high for the quality given. - USB port is not good for a gaming mouse. Both of my Corsair products are choppy when using it but it works well for USB 2.0 charging or thumb drives. - Top LED bar and logo are completely different shades than the keys. All of the colors are deeper in the top LED bar and this is very annoying while looking at the screen. - Logo is not separated from the light bar. This appears to cause the light bar section above it to be darker than the lights around them which is apart of the next issue. - Top LED bar has 3 places the LED lights appear to be out of alignment. There is a dark area that completely throws off the effects and makes the keyboard look cheap. - Gaming keys provided are oddly shaped on top. This means if you use the keyboard for typing as well as gaming you have to constantly change the keys or get used to a very odd experience trying to adapt to the obstruction while typing. Colored and textured are one thing but this changes the shape of the key which causes problems.

Overall Review: - Not worth the price and I cannot recommend this to anyone with its current design flaws. You pay a premium price for a mid range quality product. The different shades of the LED effects really damages the value of the LED lights. Having to make a new effect set just to match colors between the keys and bar takes a lot of time and should not be needed. - Corsair products and support have lately become a shadow of their former selves. I have 3 items that have to be sent in for repair and customer service has been very slow about updating tickets (over a month). I have been forced to call in for each item individually to have a RMA label attached to the ticket so I can send them in. This purchase just solidified my belief that newer Corsair products lack the quality you expect from such a high priced item and long standing company. - CUE Software is buggy and not well documented. The software likes to hang up randomly at times. The freezing effects the entire PC and this is a killer for the products that use it while gaming because they have to restart themselves which can take awhile to load the previous game profile. Version 2.20 seems to have lessened the problem but it still exists. User submitted guides are far more informational than the actual guide from Corsair.

Very Poor Quality Control

Thermaltake View 71 4-Sided Tempered Glass Vertical GPU Modular SPCC E-ATX Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with 2 Blue LED Ring Fan Pre-installed CA-1I7-00F1WN-00
Thermaltake View 71 4-Sided Tempered Glass Vertical GPU Modular SPCC E-ATX Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with 2 Blue LED Ring Fan Pre-installed CA-1I7-00F1WN-00

Pros: - Case is huge and has plenty of room - Tempered glass - Drive bays are metal while the trays in the bay are plastic but well formed. The trays can be move up to allow for water cooling hardware to be mounted to the bottom of the case in the provided mount patterns.

Cons: - Stripped / cross threaded factory screws make it impossible to secure hardware in some locations - Internal wire connectors for the front panel are way too short. They barely reach the pin headers and extensions are probably a good idea to avoid damaging the cables or pin header. - USB 3.0 pin sleeve on my motherboard is now mounted to the USB header plug. The plug was a little snug getting it in and now wont come out. Basiclally I will have to replace a motherboard because Thermaltake cant produce quality parts anymore. - There is a 5.25 cutout in the front of the case but no support for such a drive or even a fan controller. - Blue Riing lights are sloppy looking. The Riing appears to have cracks in the plastic causing a weird displacement of blue in some areas. - The single LED with a plastic ring around the inside of the fan is soft, almost too soft to be effective at lighting the inside of the case. - Finger screws for the tempered glass doors feel cheap. They do not feel as if they hold the glass securely.

Overall Review: Long story short, a new case will be in shortly but I do not expect much improvement. The screws on this case were machine tightened and it is very clear that cross threading is not only possible but very likely. I would not recommend Thermaltake products in general to anyone until they resolve their obvious quality issues. Avoid Thermaltake, the company is having major issues with quality control and software development. The Riing software for the nice software controlled LED fans will not work with new AMD processors at all. The company support actually asks customers to return the items which tells me they either have no idea why the software is garbage or they dont intend on fixing the issue. Thermaltake has dropped the ball and now ranks pretty low in hardware manufacturing. I will be looking at Corsair for LED lighting and control, they have some nice software to manage everything and controllers that will handle all LED needs. Thermaltake appears to have all but backed out of LED management.

Defective and No Communication

Item arrived defective with half the screen usable and seller has refused to contact me about the return I requested. Item has a 90 Day warranty the seller is apparently trying to expire.

Scam

Seller sold a defective item. Attempted to replace the defective part and failed to deliver working parts to replace with. Returned for refund and seller refuses to refund or even return the item. I was completely ripped off and cant get it resolved because the seller and Newegg insist this is my fault.
