Pros: To be truthful, haven't even opened the box. The box looks nice.
Cons: The reason for my 2 eggs is the fact that this thing is plagued by negative reviews and 2 eggs is the average. If I ever do use it I will update this accordingly.
Overall Review: Can't say one way or another almost afraid to use it with all the horror stories I read in the posted reviews.
Pros: With this video card I am able to get the framerate I was hoping for. Have this hooked up to a ultra wide Gigabyte monitor. Most games run butter smooth, framerate has increased by at least 30 frames and up to 100 frames on some titles.
Cons: Can't get the RGBfusion 2.0 to work for my graphics card RGB, color remains white, I have tried every fix that I could find on the Web. probably doesn't help that my Mainboard is a different brand.
Overall Review: Glad I was chosen on the Newegg Shuffle, wish it wasn't a combo but I was at least able to get my upgrade goodness.
I installed this vertically with an adapter kit. I think it looks nice that way and I recommend this style of mounting, love the fact I can see the fans spinning up when the card begins to work.
Pros: It seems to work, hasn't locked up yet. You can browse the internet but forget installing any modern game. Update..... they sent the wrong tablet was suppose to get the green one with android 9 instead sent the black one with android 5.1 not worth the cost to send back for the correct tablet.
Cons: Information listed for this device is made up. Checked the android version in the system info and it reads version 10 with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1600. I went to a website that detects your android version and screen size and it reports as version 5.1 and a screen size of 610x976.
The battery life is awful did a full charge when it arrived and have used it for less than 1 hour and it reports 67% battery life remaining. Haven't checked any other information such as storage space or external storage but I'm sure it is a lie as well. Tried to watch a movie and it skipped about every 3 seconds, update after letting the movie load up a bit more the stuttering subsided. I'm still not happy with the android 5.1
Overall Review: maybe this would be OK if I wanted android 5.1 but wish they did a better job of insuring the correct product was sent, like i said not worth the cost of sending it back.
Pros: Bought 4 of these for an old Antec 800 case that I modded for my grandson, I painted the case a red and black theme. These fans are a bright true red color and light up the entire inside of the case. They also seem to push a decent amount of air for an 80mm fan, I am using them in a push pull configuration. (2 in the front, push and 2 in the back, pull.)
Cons: None that I can think of other than I wish the cords had been a little longer.
Overall Review: If you're looking for a true red fan in an 80mm size then this is the one you're looking for.
Pros: Works no more. Ordered this on a Monday and was delivered on Friday around midday, washed the unit inside as per instructions. I then let it set for 1 hour before filling up and plugging in to let the refrigerant settle. After 6 minutes I had 9 ice cubes, seems to be working great. I really like the way it stops making ice when full it uses a infrared beam cutoff system.
Cons: Quit after 20 months. Only hold 2 liters of water, my previous ice maker held 3 liters so it was easier to maintain. Also the large cubes are the size of my small cubes on my old unit. The ice scoop is a joke I have large hands and with the small length of the handle can't scoop out ice without touching the sides of the ice bin, A kitchen spoon works perfect for this. Would be nice if the ice bin where at least 1.5 times as big.
Overall Review: Was looking to replace my failing portable ice maker. All in all was worth the price I paid, with a promo code and a shell shock deal was about half the normal price. Ice is soft and easy to chew if your into that.It worked 24 hours a day for 20 months now it has quit working and i am sad. Wish it lasted a little longer
Pros: install went smooth, recognized
Overall Review: would recommend for older desktops. breathed life into an older system.
Pros: Plug and play, cool black color goes great with my red and black theme, running at specified timings, low profile doesn't get in the way.
Cons: None yet but will update my review if something comes up.
Overall Review: would have liked RGB but couldn't bring myself to drop another bill on top of the rest of my new rig,
MSI X399 GAMING PRO CARBON AC
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB
AMD Threadripper 1920X
Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme S 240mm Radiator AIO Liquid Cooling System CPU Cooler
Rosewill PHOTON Series 1200W Full Modular Gaming Power Supply
Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD
2X PNY GTX 1070 in Sli
WD 2TB 3.5 inch Hard Drive
NZXT 530 Phantom case red
Thermaltake Riing 12 RGB kit 3X fans
Thermaltake Riing 12 white led 2X fans
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Pros: Bought 5 of these for the grandchildren. They love them. So much more smoother to turn than an original cube. Not only that but the free app helps teach how to solve.
Cons: Only thing not to like is they are a bit more expensive than an original cube but like I said super smooth turning, so I guess you get what you pay for.
Overall Review: I might even have to buy myself one. If you are looking for a easy to turn and learn cube then this is it.
Pros: Packaging was excellent there was no flopping around in the shipping box, much brighter than standard replacement bulbs, changing the bulbs was fairly easy, I had no problem figuring out how. The price was awesome less than half what a car parts store is charging.
Cons: They used brown wrapping paper to keep the bulbs safe in transit, it would have been great if they had used 100 dollar bills 0_o
Overall Review: I would recommend these bulbs to anyone needing to replace old or burnt out lights, I will absolutely purchase my cars lighting needs here again.
Pros: Easy to set up, no problems connecting to unit as a wireless hot spot.
Cons: drops connection with connected devices randomly but drops all devices at the same time. It does not stay disconnected for long, less than a second, so it is OK for general use like internet or such but online gaming is a no go.
Overall Review: can't recommend this to anyone who needs a stable internet connection.
Pros: Computer was well packaged lots of packing materials to keep it safe. This one came with a 3.3 Ghz quad core CPU (2500k). Also in description listed 4, 1 Gig sticks of RAM and it came with 2, 2 Gig sticks so that was a plus too. Not a lot of bloatware to speak of and set up was fairly easy.
Cons: Keyboard was missing one of the riser feet so it has to be used flat against to desk. Expect to spend some time doing updates the version of windows 7 is pre service pac 1 so it took awhile to download and install the 200 - 300 updates. That was the reason for giving it 4 eggs instead of 5.
Overall Review: It was definitely worth the asking price and I would buy again if I needed an inexpensive computer solution.
I opened up the case to take a peek and was pleasantly surprised to find 0 dust, the inside was pristine.
Pros: Windows 7 Professional, 1 TB hard drive, 4 gig DDR 3, not loaded with a ton of bloatware and the free trial software that was included took less than 10 minutes to uninstall, price was less than cost of OS at the shell shock price I paid for the machine. Was ordered on Tuesday and arrived Friday morning.
Cons: CPU a little dated, included DVD drive is player only, keyboard has a malfunctioning space bar and has to be pressed just right to get it to work, Motherboard does not use a standard power supply and drives are powered through Motherboard its self.
Overall Review: Was defiantly worth the cost of admission, Grandma's internet browsing computer was really old and dated and starting to fail. This is a great internet / word processing machine. It has plenty of USB ports front and back. Also after completing all the needed updates to the OS it was eligible for the free Windows 10 update.
Pros: Fast, even when using SATA 2. This was installed in a laptop that is 4 years old. It is the closest thing to being "brand new" that a person can get without buying a new machine.
Cons: Had to RMA the first one after only 2 weeks because it stopped booting the computer. I had thought the laptop may have gave up the ghost but I popped in the old drive and it booted right up.
Overall Review: Was not happy with the failure but I was happy with the way Newegg handled the return. They even paid for the return shipping. (I have only ever had to pay for my own return shipping one time and that was because I ordered the wrong thing.) As soon as the failed drive hit the warehouse a replacement was on the way and arrived 2 days later. That is why I have done business with Newegg since 2002.
Pros: Replaced a Geforce 7300 that had failed. Drivers installed automatically after installation of new card.
Gaming performance index went up from 4.6 to 5.4
Fan is quiet, not sure what others are hearing unless I just got lucky.
Cons: Aero performance dropped to 4.3 from 4.4, go figure. Only reason I Dropped an egg.
Overall Review: Was just what I needed for an older machine that is used for browsing and word processing.
Pros: I bought this for a 42 inch plasma but never used it for the TV because the TV was over 100lbs and the mount is rated at 88lbs. Bought a 55 inch Panasonic at Christmas and since the TV was 38lbs figured I'd give it a go. Worked like a charm.
Overall Review: I had the same problem as some others because of my wall stud spacing but I mounted it to the center holes of the mount on one studd and used those drywall screw in ancors (Three on each side) and the TV is solid as a rock.
Pros: Easy to overclock with a simple multiplier change to 3.4GHZ.
Running Prime 95 for 6 hours on air and 53C highest temp.
Cons: Unstable 4th core but it was worth a shot. Not sold as four core anyway so I can't deduct an egg for that.
Overall Review: Buy one before there gone.
Pros: Tracks well, comfortable in my hand, not to big nor to small, uses only one battery, price (shell shock deal), DPI control on mouse (800 or 1600 DPI)
Cons: Mouse wheel is taking a little getting use to, seems slick even with rubber grip.
Overall Review: If I was a lefty I would have a problem adjusting to the shape of the mouse, seems like it would be better for righty's IMO.
Can't beat it for the price I paid.
Pros: 1. Does a great job of pushing air into my Storm Scout case. I was having cooling problems with only stock fans installed. Temps of all components dropped substantially
2. Red LEDs are nice accents and not blinding.
3. True red color not pink or orange.
Cons: 1. Screws that came with fans are just a tad big, ended up using others I already had that worked much better.
2. Because of the amount of air flow they make a detectable high pitch sound flowing through case mesh, not nearly as bad after I installed them on the clear side door panel, less restriction to the air flow there, it is now acceptable.
Overall Review: 1. I would suggest cutting out the mesh and using a fan grill to stop air restriction. I didn't because I had some nice open fan grills on the side of my case and it prevented the annoying high pitch sound.
2. Temps in the case dropped 6 degrees Celsius and helped to alleviate my heat problem.
3. These come in a variety of colors I got the red to match my Storm Scout case lighting.
4. Have a great day!
Pros: Plays nice with antivirus software, price was great with shell shock deal, best malware protection IMO.
Cons: None at the moment.
Overall Review: Please don't litter.
Pros: Every thing seems to line up well, no warped parts or pieces, thumb screws are a plus, 120 mm case fan helps with the air flow, most edges are rolled to prevent cuts.
Cons: Stand offs either will or wont work, seems the machined holes are punched just a tad to big in some places used pliers to squeeze the holes a bit on the back side to help the threads on stand offs catch.
Power supply is 330 watts continuous not 480 watts like stated in description.
No hard drive led. What’s up with that?
Front USB ports are upside down.
Overall Review: My case speaker was missing so I used one from a junk case I had laying around. Just zip tied it to some vent holes in the back of the case.
I also robbed the HD led from the old case and drilled a hole in one of the drive panels and hot glued it in, viola, now I have a red blinking light when accessing the HD.
Pros: great little game, my grandson really likes it. It will remind you of the first diablo game because it is stand alone play.
Cons: kind of cartoonish but not a serious problem.
Overall Review: good way to waist some time
Pros: Looks great, was enough power to run my system until it failed
Cons: It failed after 16 months. 12 volt rail could only muster 10 volts and 5 volt positive produced only 3 volts. Was causing all kinds of random crash's.
Overall Review: Glad I bought the 2 year warrenty, awaiting the replacement now.
Pros: The biggest Pro is the fact I bought an open box version for a C-note and everything was included in the box even the Sli bridge. Very easy to setup. Have the memory running at 1800 and the CPU 3.6 (i7 930), all I had to do is choose the auto overclock in the bios and the speed I wanted to run. I had bought this to test my CPU. I had bought a Foxxcon Flamingblade and less than a minute into preparing the bios for install it went up in smoke. Glad I bought this. I was so impessed I went ahead and used it for my new build.
Cons: I bought the Flamingblade insted of this the first time around.
Overall Review: I have bought Open box before and was expecting the same old white box with only a motherboard inside. What I found was a complete kit .It looked as if it had never even been used. All the plastic bags were still intact, I am guessing someone bought this and a 1156 socket CPU and had to send it back.
My compter specs:
ASRock x58 Extreme Motherboard
Intel i7 930 running at 3.6GHz
Crucial Ballistix Tracer (3 x 2GB) in RED running 1800
PNY nvidia 470 GTX
CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series H50
HITACHI Deskstar 1TB
CoolerMaster Storm Scout case
Rocket Fish 900watt power supply
LiteOn DVD burner
Pros: Great looking, Lots of features for the money. Very comprehensive manual.
Cons: Powered on the computer, entered the Bios, was adjusting the settings for my configuration and about 20 seconds into the process the computer shut off and back on it was then that I smelled smoke (never a good sign) from the exhaust fan on top of the Storm Scout case. immediately turned off the power and began looking for the source. Turned out to be from the voltage regulators under the heat sink next to the CPU socket.
Overall Review: MY build
Storm Scout Case
Desk star 1 TB drive
3x2 Crucial Ballistix Tracer RAM in red
Nvidia 470 GTX
900 watt Redfish Modular Power supply
Lite on DVD recorder
Corsair H50 water cooler
Now I'm waiting on the RMA what a bummer.
Pros: Thought i was getting a sata 1 cable but turns out to be a sata 2 was a nice surprise. It maybe there are no more sata 1's but might have been a fluke.
Cons: The red ones are more expensive.
Overall Review: Wish you could combine shipping on cables to get a better deal on postage. I would buy several more.
