Pros: Many lighting options and modes. So many in fact I'm still learning all the modes this keyboard can do. Coming from a Logitech G710+, this board beats it by miles. My main complaint about the 710 was that the key caps would break during normal use. It remains to be seen, but this keyboard feels much better quality than the newer Logitech boards. Brown switches.... Love the cherry brown switches, so tactile and positive. I love this keyboard so far.
Cons: The user manual is lacking and vague, but fortunately there's youtube videos and sites dedicated on how to use this keyboard.
Overall Review: Get this keyboard, you won't regret it.
Pros: Sound great and well built. Way better than the other junk I've owned (razer, plantronics, etc, etc) that break after a few months or sound horrible. Mic sound quality is excellent as well.
Overall Review: Get these if you want a great sounding gaming headset that stands the test of time. I'm extremely happy with mine.
Pros: Lighted keys
Cherry MX brown switches
Cons: Keys are cheap and break easily (see other thoughts)
Flimsy wrist support
Volume control wheel sometimes doesn't work
Overall Review: I really wanted to love this board, but the overall cheap quality of it kept me from doing so. The keys are such poor quality they keep breaking and coming off while I'm trying to type or play games. I already lost the ESC key after it broke a couple months after I got it. Since then, some of the other keys come off at random. I've owned many mice and keyboards from Logitech and they were all bulletproof. Then I bought this one and it's the first time I've been disappointed by a product from them. Just be aware of this should you choose this board.
Pros: -Great ventilation
-cable routing is a breeze
-Build quality is very good as well as fit and finish (dare I say, "excellent"?)
-Side panels are easy to remove
-The reset button is the coolest idea I've seen on any case, very visible and covered with a plastic flip door to prevent accidental resets
-Oh, and the motherboard tray has an alignment pin in the center
-Included case fans are fairly quiet
Cons: The few relatively minor gripes I have about this case:
-The power button requires a bit more effort to push than I would like
-The plastic drive trays are a bit flimsy, but they work
-The instructions are very vague, and only lists the included hardware but not what to do with them
-The plastic cable routing clips on the back of the MB tray are very weak and flimsy
Overall Review: In case people aren't already aware, don't spill your drink on this case (jcoch, thanks for the warning)
Pros: I love the UEFI on this board. makes updating and changing settings a snap. That said.....
Cons: Instruction manual is very vague. I had a hard time figuring out which memory slots were dual channel, the front panel connectors were a nightmare to sort out. I had a scare when I pressed the power button and nothing happened. Turns out, I had several connectors backwards thanks to the horrible labeling on the board and the manual. I finally had to google to find which memory slots were for dual channel mode.
Overall Review: However, I got it all sorted out and I do like this board. I took off one egg because of the difficulty I had with the manual. But overall, I'd go with this board again. It has all the features I wanted for a really good price.
Pros: Coming from a Q6600, this thing really inpresses me. It absolutely smokes that old quad core. I haven't had a chance to benchmark it yet, but I can already tell a huge difference in startup and program execution times.
Cons: It's intel, so there aren't any.
Overall Review: Didn't pay much attention when I first ordered this, didn't see the 2600K version. O well, hardly any difference between the two and I didn't get this to overclock it anyway.
Pros: A very good monitor of this size for the money. Very crisp, bright picture.
Cons: Speakers don't sound so great, kinda sound like what you would get out of a laptop.
Overall Review: Ok, so the speakers leave a lot to be desired, but so what. They work great if you just need a cheap set of speakers and want to save on space.
Pros: The quality of this case is much better than I thought it would be. Cable management is definitely a plus.
Cons: Zero as far as I'm concerned.
Overall Review: Although not as roomy as my Antec 900, I wish it was. I would buy one of these to replace it.
Cons: Burned up within five minutes.
Overall Review: This is one of those "live and learn" stories. After this power supply almost caught fire, I'll never buy anything recertified or refurbished again
Pros: FAST!!!!! Reads cd's & DVD's in seconds instead of minutes. Installing Vista took about ten minutes with this thing.
Cons: Disk sometimes gets jammed in the tray when it's ejected before it stops spinning. =( Loading tray pops out at you a bit too fast!
Overall Review: Some have complained of noise with this drive, but mine's been quieter than the fans in my case. Overall, it functions well for a drive this fast for the price. Just don't use the button on the drive itself to eject the disk while it's still reading. Instead, use the eject command from inside the OS.
Pros: For the money, this case can't be beat! More cooling fans than you can shake a stick at- not to mention plenty of room for video cards and PS wiring.
Overall Review: Asus P5E Mainboard, Q6600 processor, ATI 3870 video cards
Pros: This is an Excellent DVD ROM/burner. Very fast and quiet for its speed, I'd recommend this to anyone looking for good quality for an unbeatable price.
Cons: None as of yet.
Overall Review: Newegg is so AWESOME!!!!!! I love this place!!!!
Pros: I really like this keyboard. I love the illuminated keys and the extra "G" keys which you can assign macros to. Easy to use and program.
Cons: No vista drivers on the disk- must download them from Logitech's webpage.
Overall Review: Intel Q6600, Asus P5E MB, 2gb Kingston HyperX 1066 RAM Windows Vista, MSI 3870 Radeon videocard.
Pros: Good memory- worked the first time and is very fast.
Overall Review: Intel Q6600, Asus P5E MB, 2G Kingston 1066 RAM
Pros: Very good sound quality, easy to use.The sound I hear through the earpiece is usually quite good, with some intermittent static every once in a while. Fairly comfortable fit in the ear too.
Cons: Mic quality is hit or miss. Most times people can hear me clearly, other times not so well. I wish it had more features.
Overall Review: Overall, a very good Bluetooth headset. Despite the bugs, I love this thing.
