Very Good Sound Card

Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150200000 5.1 Channels 24-bit PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card
Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150200000 5.1 Channels 24-bit PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card

Pros: Best-sounding card I have ever owned, and I have owned a lot of them. Surround sound in games is flawless. Put in a recently recorded album like Satriani's Unstoppable Momentum, and you can hear everything.

Cons: One Bug - Others have reported clicking on the speakers with this card. I did too. I found out it was from hooking up the front-panel audio ports. Once I unhooked that, the clicking went away. So, it looks like the front-panel port on this card is ungrounded or something, and Creative needs to get this fixed. I thought maybe it was just my system, but I do not get the clicking when I tested using the motherboard sound chip and hooking up the front panel connector to the motherboard. Creative - get your engineers to work!

Overall Review: I have a Dell XPS 8500 with most of the parts replaced. I have been on Windows 8.1 Pro since September 10th, 2013.

Shame On Me And Boo To Microsoft

Microsoft Office Home & Student 2019 | One time purchase, 1 device | Windows 10 PC/Mac Download
Microsoft Office Home & Student 2019 | One time purchase, 1 device | Windows 10 PC/Mac Download

Pros: Excel and Word 2019 are top-notch products.

Cons: Does not include MICROSOFT OUTLOOK

Overall Review: I use Office 2019 at work and it is excellent. I thought this would give me a chance to get it on my home computer which has 2016 on it, and get it at a good price. For those of us who use Outlook for all our email and calendar tasks, it is critical to our lives. Going back to browser-based email is not acceptable. Microsoft removed OUTLOOK from this package to try to force us to buy the pure garbage Office 365. First of all, shame on me for not checking the product thoroughly before purchase. I never would have believed that Outlook would be pulled from any Office package. Second, shame on Microsoft for this fraud. I do not blame Newegg in any way for this.

Perfect for RAID 0

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM

Pros: Very fast - fastest for the money, in my opinion Great warranty High-Quality manufacturing

Cons: None

Overall Review: I added these two into my modified Dell XPS 8700 desktop. I set them up in RAID 0 configuration and I am getting over 1GB/second read AND write speeds, according to ATTO and Crystal Disk Mark. Coupled with the i7 processor, this is by far the fastest system I have ever built. These drives are INCREDIBLE!

It Gets The Channels!

Pros: Light weight Easy assembly Easy setup

Cons: None

Overall Review: Simply put: I have been trying antenna after antenna and there are two stations in my area (7.1 and 42.1) which only get the 65+ signal strength (which my TV needs to show the station clearly) on rare occasions. This antenna does the job and now I can finally stop looking for a good antenna. The farthest station from me is only 25 miles, but my area has a lot of blockages and interference. No longer a problem!
