Most Favorable Review

Works for me...

Intuit Quicken 2007 Deluxe
Intuit Quicken 2007 Deluxe

Pros: Updates with you bank automatically, produces financial reports faster than I ever could, lets me know when I'm spending too much at Newegg

Cons: For what I'm using it for, none.

Overall Review: I updated this product when I get it and have not had any issues with it like some others. I am using it to keep track of checking, savings, 401k, Roth IRA, credit card, auto insurance, and money markets. It does all this without a single problem for me.

Solid point and shoot with 28mm to boot!

Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Silver 8.0 MP 3.0" 230K LCD 3.8X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

Pros: 28mm lens (this is much more important than most people think). DIGIC III processor (face detection, ect.). Size (classic Elph size, so it fits in most pockets). IS (Image Stabilization) Modes a plenty….

Cons: High ISO = Bad

Overall Review: I use a DSLR most of the time, but the little lady wanted a camera for her purse… After trying the Panasonics, Sonys, Nikons, and a few other Canons, this is the one that I choose for her. I visited the brick & mortars, and using my own cards took pictures and tinkered with about 15 different models. This is the cream of the crop for 300 or less. The 8MP is more than needed, but cropping is not issue. The loss of the optical view finder bothers some, but on most of the cameras they were inaccurate anyway. I highly recommend this camera for anyone looking. Purchased this during the whole Paypal 20% off so it was a SUPER deal…

It's a "L" !

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Standard Zoom Lens
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Standard Zoom Lens

Pros: Contrast, sharpness, and color are unbelievable to me. I know this is what I paid for but I’m still impressed. I highly recommend renting lens before you buy, this will bring you true satisfaction.

Cons: It took longer than promised to get to me by a couple of days (and I needed it!). A Newegg web chat representative promised to return my rush shipping and $25 of my overnight shipping. The money was never to be seen or heard of again…

Overall Review: This is my first L, using this to replace the kit 17-55 (its trash all around). I rented this and the 24-70 F2.8L and found this not only to lighter and smaller, but the added focal range and image stability was the deciding factor. Before I rented them I was a little concerned about the lens factor, but found 24mm to work just fine for my needs. I am using this lens on a 20D and it seems to be the perfect focal length for walking around. The next big question is 100-400 L or 70-200 F4L?

The more you buy the cheaper the shipping...

OKGEAR 24" SATA 6 Gbps Cable, Straight to Straight W/ Metal Latch, Silver, Backward Compatible 3 Gbps and 1.5 Gbps

Pros: They look nice, have a great clip, and work.

Cons: Not cheap.

Overall Review: The more you buy the more its worth it, so find some friends that want some and buy 12 or so...

Never Look Back

SAMSUNG 226BW 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor
SAMSUNG 226BW 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor

Pros: The refresh rate is outstanding, contrast ratio is excellent and the size is perfect (The screen is about 1 1/4 taller and about 5 1/2 inches wider than a 17" LCD) The versa mount is a big plus also.

Cons: Mail in rebate, and two different manufactures. (S or A models) The base is less than perfect, but I knew that already (it needs about 3 inches past the panel)

Overall Review: Apparently I am one of the "lucky ones" because this is a S model. Coming from a 3 year old EMACH*NES brand 17" LCD monitor this is amazing. I'm not a "gamer" but I do sure do appreciate a good screen...

Don't be fooled...

Thermaltake Silver Aluminum MozartTx VE1000SWA Cube Tower
Thermaltake Silver Aluminum MozartTx VE1000SWA Cube Tower

Pros: Light weight (all things considered). Beautiful. Great cooling capabilities. Excellent packaging for shipping. Its size. Front panel connections

Cons: Aluminum around rear I/O panel could be thicker. Fans are not three pin (to attach to motherboard headers)

Overall Review: Upgrading from a Mid tower case, I always felt like I was running out of space. This thing solves the problem! Get out your tape measure to give yourself a visual image of its enormity... THIS THING IS HUGE!
