Most Favorable Review

Awesome Board!

XFX PVT88PYDE4 GeForce 8800GT Extreme 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: How did they do it? At this price, the performance is outstanding! Highly recommended. I am running Vista and the DX10 version of COH runs great.

Cons: Fan is a little loud, but not bad enough to make me want to replace it with a 3rd party cooler.

Overall Review: I can't really see any big deal with DX10 vs DX9 on COH, but then it was not really designed for DX10, just patched.

Most Critical Review

Great Monitor - Rebate not working out

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: This is a great monitor. Absolutely beautiful. Nice touch: The monitor came with both VGA and DVI cables.

Cons: With the monitor - absolutely none. But the rebate is not working out for me. I sent in all the materials as required and a few weeks later got back a post card saying that I did not include the UPC/serial number barcode. Since I already did send it in, all I could do is send in the copy I made before mailing the original. I have little hope that I will ever get the rebate. Too bad this transaction on such a nice monitor has to be tarnished like this. Except for this, it would have gotten 5 eggs from me.

Overall Review: Be sure to make copies of your rebate materials! Why don't they just give a better price in the first place and save all the hassle? As always, NewEgg did their part!

Fits the bill nicely

USB3.0 Front Panel HUBs Bracket for SSD/HDD/3.5" Internal Device
USB3.0 Front Panel HUBs Bracket for SSD/HDD/3.5" Internal Device

Pros: Fits nicely in an older case's 5.25 front slot. Easy to install. Easy to mount an SSD. Even came with screws to do so. USB cables are long enough to reach most any motherboard

Cons: OK, this is very nit picky, but the flower-shaped vent on the front are not exactly my style, but to be honest, I don't even notice this anymore. The cables join at the mother board connection instead of in the device, so you will have two cables to route, this was not a big deal for me at all but I wanted to mention it in case it is a factor for someone else.

Overall Review: I need to add USB 3.0 connections to the front of an older case. This fits the bill perfectly since I also wanted a mounting point for a new SSD as well. If needed, and with a little surgery, I think that one could even mount a small 40mm fan in one of the flower-shaped vents to add cooling for the SSD.

Gorgeous Display

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Quad Core 3GB RAM 16GB Storage 10.1" 2560 x 1600 Touchscreen Tablet PC Android 4.3 - White

Pros: Stunning display. Operationally great.

Cons: None

Overall Review: No signs of any of the transitional slow-downs that some other reviewers have reported. Using with a third-party Bluetooth keyboard, but the on-screen keyboard is really quite good. Like any other Android device, Flash is not available.

Nice monitor

ASUS VE247H 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 VGA DVI-D HDMI Built-in Speakers LED Backlit LCD Monitor

Pros: Perfect condition. No dead/bad pixels at all. Bright, vivid colors. Looks good right out of the box.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: This monitor compares quite well with the VE248 that I already own. I can detect no differences in the display quality. It drives me nuts that monitor manufactures all think that all anyone wants to do with a monitor is watch HD movies. I want more vertical space on my display! How about a 1920 x 1200 resolution in a 24" monitor like we used to have???

Pros: Very quiet.

Cons: Runs warm, but I think it is normal for a high capacity drive.

Overall Review: Arrived in two days.
