Most Favorable Review

Premier = Great Shipping

Newegg Premier 12 Month Membership
Newegg Premier 12 Month Membership

Pros: If you spend more than 1k a year on newegg, this is perfect for you. On average I spend around $8k-9k and I really get the value on the shipping discounts and super fast shipping times.

Cons: I think they should give premier members more discounts when it comes to certain products. For example I purchased memory for $53 and that same memory is $71 6 months later. Give premier member better pricing and specials. You give everyone daily specials who don't pay for the premier service. Allow the member to get pricing for the same item 6 months later.

Overall Review: I would recommend this for the shipping discounts and times. Please understand not to have any expectations outside of the shipping value

Most Critical Review

Product broke shortly after 1 year of use

EVGA TEGRA NOTE 7 Tablet - 16GB Flash, 1GB RAM Quad Core NVIDIA Tegra 4
EVGA TEGRA NOTE 7 Tablet - 16GB Flash, 1GB RAM Quad Core NVIDIA Tegra 4

Pros: It was a great tablet while it lasted,

Cons: You can't repair it, you can't find any parts for it.

Overall Review: Even if you take care of this it will still break. Terrible product, I went back to a different brand that is mainstream. Last time I choose EVGA for tablets. Just terrible waste of $200 for a 14 months of use. My advice is choose a mainsteam tablet that you can source parts for if it breaks instead of getting the run around from the manufacturer. Bottom line is no excuse is good enough after a tablet breaks shortly after the warranty. I ended up giving this broken thing away. Support was useless. Here's you improve EVGA, source parts. Provide out of warranty support for the item if you know it breaks after a year.

It lives up to the hype!

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FE 11GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FE 11GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition

Pros: Huge upgrade for me, went from 2x R9 290xs in crossfire to this beast! Having a large amount of vram is really nice. Most games on average use about 6GB of vram, the division uses around 7.5GB of Vram. The nvidia surround is really good (same as eyefinity for amd) and I am able to play most games on 3x monitors 7680 x 1080 on ultra is great! This card will save me money on my electric bill compared to use 2x cards. Nvidia has honestly the best drivers compared to amd. This card does truly lives up to the hype! I have heard other users complain about the fan noise, It doesn't bother me nor can I really hear it. Its better than the older stock fan I had on one of my r9 290x fans. I also like the fact, I don't have to manually set the fan to achieve decent performance nor mod/replace it with an after market fan.

Cons: I had to wipe my computer to get the full performance (It may have been coming from amd, even after removing the old drivers in control panel and installing the latest ones from nvidia was getting around 140-170fps in rainbow six siege, after wiping the whole system it goes as high as 240fps in some areas. (They have a third party tool called display driver uninstaller, this helped a little but didn't fix the performance problems. I wish nvidia surround was working for rainbow six siege, it works in the game menu but not on levels. I'm not going to complain at all for the price, I'm glad they released it!

Overall Review: If you have an R9 290x or two in crossfire, this will be a great upgrade! I had horrible BF1 performance, horrible divison performance, it was getting to the point of a struggle to achieve 60fps in most games even on medium to low settings. This card should be more than enough for regular 1080P gaming (if not overkill) If you are running multi-monitor or a 4k single display this is perfect. Understand that this card is for a niche consumer (IE ME) who has an actual need for a card with this type of performance and large amount of vram.

Great buffalo product, poor quality seagate hard drive

LinkStation 210 2TB Personal Cloud Storage with Hard Drives Included (LS210D0201)
LinkStation 210 2TB Personal Cloud Storage with Hard Drives Included (LS210D0201)

Pros: I love Buffalo's easy to setup tools and menu. You can create folders and gain web access.

Cons: You are getting deducted 1 egg because you are using a poor drive called seagate. These drives are not reliable. Stop selling junk to customers it makes your company look bad. When a drive fails 4 months after the warranty ends that is a good hint not to sell them. Solution below incase you want to fix your drive.

Overall Review: How to fix this device if it gives you the 7 red blinking lights of death which means the hard drive has died, you have 2 options one option is to buy an identical one, pop it open, clone the hard drive and then put in the new drive back in the unit. The other option is to take a LS421DE (diskless nas) backup the data before you do this and make sure its in a raid one configuration and make sure its factory default new. Pull one of the disks out and put in a new one, rebuild the array, then pull that drive out and stick it in this unit. The unit will actually boot, then you can download the ls firmware update tool from buffalo's site and flash it to the latest firmware and then you reset it back to factory settings. I had to do this for a customer recently and used a 1TB WD Black drive (5 year warranty) to get him working again. I really hope this helps anyone affected incase their hard drive fails, because the unit itself is still good. The problem is buffalo doesn't develop tools to fix this on the consumer side. The operating system is literally stored on the drive so once it fails and you pop in a new drive unformatted with no data it will just blink red lights all day saying it either does not detect a drive or it does not see any operating system.

A Great Highpowered Router

Amped Wireless RTA1900 High Power AC1900 Wi-Fi Router 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
Amped Wireless RTA1900 High Power AC1900 Wi-Fi Router 802.11a/b/g/n/ac

Pros: I needed to replace a router that simply was not getting the job down when it came to wireless strength. I am glad I choose this product we went from using a low end router which gave about 2-3 bars upstairs and outside to full strength coverage. I work in an area where these homes are literally hundreds of years old (1700s/1800s) and this router can cover the home (or place of business in my case)

Cons: The user interface is "special" meaning the company decided to re-invent the wheel instead of making it spin faster. It took me about 20 minutes just to find how to reserve DHCP addresses. I would recommend bracing yourself when configuring the router.

Overall Review: I wish I knew about the power of this product, its range is so powerful I can reduce/eliminate the need for powerline networking devices (they work but I'd prefer using this beast) when it comes to accessing the internet.

One of the best routers for the money

TP-LINK SafeStream TL-ER6020 Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN Router 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps WAN Ports 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps LAN Ports
TP-LINK SafeStream TL-ER6020 Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN Router 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps WAN Ports 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps LAN Ports

Pros: I have setup several of these for my customers, I typically configure there networks to perform a remote desktop connection and use this router to do so, I also love the fallback port and the router can sense when to use it if the internet goes down on one wan port it will roll over to another

Cons: Not really a con, but they should have made the router default over to fallback instead of some useless timed port change on the WAN ports. Just beware to change this setting, if not you will have a potentially angry customer (I speak from experience).
