Super buy

TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite A505-S6969 Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 250GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 16.0" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite A505-S6969 Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 250GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 16.0" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: The laptop itself is amazing for the price. After arrival, the computer booted up and loaded without any problems. Plays COD4 without any hick ups and the sound is good for onboard. Plays Netflix without any stumbling. Great buy! Newegg had the computer on the way the next morning. 5 eggs for the laptop and for Newegg.

Cons: Connecting to the router either by wifi or lan was a pain. Can't really blame Toshiba as it was a Vista 64 problem. The soultion was easy, but took a while to find on the interent. Once fixed, the N connection speed was blazing.

Overall Review: A lot of people complain about the heat, but I think they are too harsh. The heat is all being pumped out of the computer and out into their air and that is why they think it runs too hot. Better outside the computer than in the computer. You can't game successfully without making heat.

Solid investment

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Clocked straight to 4.5 GHZ on the AMD heatsink and fan. Temps look good and stability tests went well. Ready for some gaming this weekend. Replaced a FX4170 and I like it.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: After the Christmas season, I will invest in another water cooling system. The fan is fairly loud, but that is he cost of cooling right now.

Works good

EVERCOOL K8-FM1 Retention Holder compatible for AMD k8 socket/AM2/AM3/FM1

Pros: Fits just like it's supposed to and holds the heatsink and fan just fine.

Cons: None. I don't particularly like the partner shipping experience between DHL and USPS. FEDEX and USPS was not so bad. Will most likely just pay the extra for 3-day shipping from now on.

Overall Review: Bought a FX8350 and found out that my Antec Kuhler H2O 620 was not pumping. Had to order this to mount the AMD heatsink/fan to allow sufficient cooling. Lost my original mounts and glad that these were available.

Underrated

AMD FX-4170 - FX-Series Zambezi Quad-Core 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD4170FRGUBOX
AMD FX-4170 - FX-Series Zambezi Quad-Core 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD4170FRGUBOX

Pros: I agree with those who say that this processor receives too many bad reviews. It booted at 4.2GHz right out of the box just as adervtised. Overclocked to 4.9 and idles at 20C with full load temps at 50C with an Antec-Kuhler H2O 620. Saw an improvement over an oc'd 955. Very good cpu for very little money. AMD still has my buisiness and Newegg rocks. Ordered on Wednesday and delivered on Friday

Cons: None.

Pros: Simple instructions, easy installation, great cooling. FX-4170 idles at 20C and full load runing at 50C max. after gaming for an hour. Very quiet and I recommend.

Cons: None.

Great TV and service

Westinghouse 40" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV LD-4080

Pros: The tv picture is outstanding and makes movies look like you looking out a window onto another world. There is no ghosting on rapid movements and tv shows or games from an ATI card look super. The speakers are not anything to go wow over, but it was not bought for the speakers. The surround sound system delivers all of the Dolby 5.1 that you need.

Cons: The box had a gouge in the front and the straps had bitten into the corners, but no lost egg for handling.

Overall Review: Ordered this Thanksgiving night and even with all of the Black Novemeber hoopla and high volume, Newegg still had it out the door and to the house by Tuesday the 29th. Once again it is prooven: Once you know, you Newegg.
