500G drive9/20/2020 4:18:03 AM

Pros: This has been a revolving drive, for a 10 year old WIN 64 Pro system - only replacement needed. Bearings where a little noisy old old drive. This was a new drive, really cheap.

Cons: Old physical disk

Overall Review: Can't buy drives for this price and get.10 years of computing. Always back up .

Take your choice on MODEL and good luck with support12/14/2016 11:30:41 AM

Pros: The item would have had two eggs but the price was unbeatable -Black Friday deal. However it's really going to cost in upgrades, due to misinformation regards the M.2 chip. LCD is bright and a full gamma color experience. Fast boot (caveat later) keyboard is a pleasure blue/green/orange and very good tactile feel to the keys. Laptop does feel very soild. Switching GPU's is a real bonus.

Cons: This was the single worst experience trying to find upgrade parts, even trying to figure out the multiple model references to this one unit.GT72 Dominator Pro G-1252, GT72 Dominator Pro G034 / GT72 6QE Dominator Pro G. The latter is actually what the laptop is. This all begs why MSI would use THREE different model numbers ? Upgraded immediately to 32G DDR4 and that was well worth doing -Gskill $91. Support stated the Warranty sticker removal did not apply to North American bought laptops. Also added a Blu ray burner (Here on the egg) for $68 -Had trouble getting support to provide size base (12.7 or 9.5) after a hold it was 9.5 (for those needing that upgrade.) because you won't find that information anywhere. Removing the screw did not free up the DVD already in place -Deal with that later. The M.2 is a substandard chip,, it's a Kingston 497G RBU-SNS8152S3512GG2, Had me believing this was a Samsung 950 Pro 512G. The bevel touches the screen in several places. . Do NOT install from the install DVD, it's badly scripted and is guaranteed to provide corruption errors, [SCM ] -Still have to deal with that. Upload from either MSI or/ directly from the device manager files -specifically blue tooth/network drivers by right clicking/properties and drivers "update driver." That will obtain WIFI connection. . I have not received an answer regards changing out the battery, there is a 2nd back plate & I'm not sure what springs loose when that is removed to access more than the DDR/SSD & HD. The HD is loose on a tray, but that's an easy fix. .DO NOT attempt to register the product until you have the laptop on hand, I did & found it was a witch hunt to get to anything on the MSI site because both were not done at the same time. I was trying to get technical data to upgrade on the front end.

Overall Review: Don't care for WIN 10 and will be upgrading to a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 chip soon [Have on hand] and Debian dual boot WIN 7 Pro. Technical support could be better, regards technical data information, the response received for removing the screw did not release the DVD writer from the laptop bay resulted in "You don't need optical drivers." Overall, would I do it again -YES, with these hints on the front end it was worth it, though I'm left sorting through which documents actually apply to this particular model, don't expect a manual specific to this model. MSI needs to get it's USA support together, starting with the install disk and the appropriate manual. Newegg has not let me down, so that's the upside.

Intel Softeware package.12/29/2014 1:24:54 PM

Pros: WorldOfTanks, might work for those interested in a non free product, based on how one uses the game, Steam installations are trouble free.

Cons: WorldOfTanks -For me was somewhat invasive to the OS, however my concern was not the product but end users, opens ports without due diligence and an effort was made to secure it further after dialogue, however, I'm not inclined to use it on a system using passwords for business at all. The Intel suite was a complete failure, good luck, was unable to register or use the product and it is based on code that is more than four years old...Go figure.

Overall Review: Stream products are satisfactory, WorldOfTanks is operable but rather system invasive. The Intel pack crashed out on C++ and is a rather poor example of an intro to a software attempt, was unable to register the product at all, I was not inclined ton attempt a recovery or follow up based on "Apple" requirements. Overall-Free for a $200.00 product is stretching the realm of reasonable, but that's my take, your mileage may differ based on the level of concern. Overall my assumption is a $50.00 value at best, regardless of the reasons I WON'T use it. It's a shot in the dark package, of little real value.

Pros: This is a real LCD monitor of huge proportions! Colour is excellent out of the box, sharp and crisp. No dead pixels. *Wow* Still comes to mind, max settings are impressive. I have elected to use 125% sizing for easier viewing; from the Display panel.

Cons: Have not had time to 'Play' with settings yet, however there is light bleed from all sides. Slowed my system down a tad, thought installing the driver would help, but no. Perhaps it's not a fair comment coming from two LG S-IPS 24" LCD's, that cost $650.00 a piece. Faster refresh on the 'Old' LCD's.

Overall Review: This completes the new build. I have supported DELL PC's and laptops in a business environment since around 2000; this is the first DELL product I have ever bought. 3820 @ 4.5 ASUS Sabertooth 2011 GTX670 32G G.Skill -Low profile DDR PCPower&Cooling 950W PSU Windows 7 retail 64bit -Already on hand ASUS Blu Ray Burner Pioneer Blu Ray Burner-On hand already ASUS DVD Burner Crucial 300 -128G SSD -Primary [loaded with 32G to spare] WD 1TB SATA 6 WD 2TB SATA 3 -On hand already WD 1TB SATA 3 -On hand already CoolerMaster 932 Blue (Fan lights) case -Excellent case.

Pros: There are some people who buy this thinking it’s the lower end range of the i7 crowd, but old tech fossils know better.

Cons: None. Never ceases to amaze me how people write reviews, based on their lack of knowledge, or completly off topic for the item reviewed. Roughly 1:1,500 nmotherboards have an issue; if you believe failure rates around here at 1:50, it tells all. If people can't spend the time to get a fundemental understanding of the inner workings of how a PC works -Get somebody to help you out!

Overall Review: The number one error encountered are those that don't check compatibility FIRST, followed by BIOS or firmware updates and then HOW to set the BIOS for what they have. Happenstance the Sabertooth mobo was an open box, obviously that's a risk, however knowing that there was a chance somebody clueless had it; went ahead and its a flawless build. I often wonder how much the Egg have to deal with those that should stay away from builds, until educated. It's obvious to those that know when a poor [weired] review is posted.

Pros: Great card, problem free. Runs quiet and fast.

Cons: Software deficient., not worth an egg off though as that's not what was for sale.

Overall Review: I tried as many have, to get a GTX680, good thing because for a 2-3% loss I paid a full $240.00 less for the GTX670 -I call that bang for buck. It was just as hard to get a GTX670, just lucked in, however I would have preferred the MSI for the afterburner software.

PCPower&Cooling5/27/2012 9:30:37 AM

Pros: Rails solid, didn't note any ripple; actually quiter than previous models. Was not expecting the old CA quality build I was used to, however it is.

Cons: Could do with a couple less lines, trying to stack unusables is a tight job in a case that has hide-away wire setups.

Overall Review: Have bought PCPower& cooling, Corsair, Seasonic and Antec and in the order of preference. Started building PC's in 1983 and still as then, believe the real motor of the PC is the PSU, some think it's the CPU. ;) Get a bad PSU and one knows what can happen to everything else in the case. Have had no reason, after years of testing PSU's to change from a SINGLE 12V delivery and although I won't use a 'Modular' PSU setup, I have not tested them to arrive at a leakage issue conclusion because of the additional soft weak connections (break in the delivery system.)-Just a personal preferrence on a known and tested expectation on single inline 12V rails.--Meaning I would never buy multi 12V PSU's, but have nothing to judge myself, on a modular PSU. +3.3V@25A,+5V@25A,+12V@83.4A, -12V@0.8A,+5VSB @ 6.0A

Hyper EVO5/27/2012 9:11:44 AM

Pros: Very effective with temps @ around 95F, hard to go wrong coupled with the CoolerMaster 932 case.

Cons: Very hard to see and move the screws to the last set of holes for a 2011 setup, if it looks like it does not fit, it really will.

Overall Review: Got in a hurry, wanted the system built and loaded in less than 8hrs, managed 7hrs with a wasted hour trying to figure out why the bracket over the heatsink was not long enough for the Sabertooth 2011 setup. Persist and it does work; just really hard to see the last holes in the bracket.

Sabertooth5/27/2012 9:05:24 AM

Pros: Works as described. Lots of features, like the new BIOS. Stayed away from ASUS motherboards since the mid 90's, tended to work and die after two years (had a company building PC's). However, checking the specs on the board proved ASUS has increased the value of components and are not now taking short cuts. No firmware call-home IVY for me!

Cons: Provided the BIOS is up to date, it's clear sailing, had two updates behind. NOT a con, but I see all over the web where people have not gone into the BIOS and set XMP for the DDR and don't realize the lack therefof is the problem.

Overall Review: Been spending time trying to force issues over the last week, no dice, it's rock solid. Be careful, the two ports for caching (SSD+HD) was not what my mind wanted to expect, that literaly means using an SSD ONLY for caching and the HD is primary. As it happened using the CoolerMaster cooler left tons of room for the DDR that seems to be an issue for many and the reason I went low profile DDR -Not required if the cooler is Hyper 212 EVO, lighter and smaller than most 'Large' coolers and efficient. ASUS Sabertooth 2011 Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO -CPU Cooler Zortec GTX 670 -2% less than a GTX680, but a couple of hundred cheaper, very pleased -Would rather have gone MSI for the utilities though.

Pros: PC replacement, cool and sized right.

Cons: It's not thre connection with wireless, it's the low connect speed. Been trying to get Newegg to order the Intel wireless option so I can buy it here. It' only adds $35.00.

Overall Review: Love the Egg, but it's way past time to offer upgrade options on laptops when selling them.

Pros: Best deal of the last two years. Great quality. Very solid build.

Cons: Makes my 55" TV look a wee bit smaller ;)

Overall Review: Tested tonight after a very fast S/H of two days. Both speakers performed flawlessly and now with 7.1 surround, I'm complete with an audio setup. The last Rambo and Expendables was tested at break neck volume and held firm, on the 7.1 sound setting.

6671/5/2011 1:49:10 PM

Pros: Dital cables make life so much easier, pass through has a slight delay (Of course) but works flawelessly.

Cons: Tough to connect 12AWG wire to the terminals, the terminals are very close together. Probably would not have been a problem, if the setup was done with banana plugs though.

Overall Review: Used the free Polk speakers, but not the center speaker -Klpisch for that and a Polk sub woofer 505 and this is a awe inspiring setup to listen to. Wonderful Egg bargin to be sure!

Pros: Came free with the Yamaha 667! Did not use the center speaker, used a Klpisch C-1 with horn. Surprsingly clear and crisp sound, was not expecting much but it's great little set.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Partnered with a 505 Polk sub woofer and will be looking, of course for a pair of front standing speakers.

Correction1/4/2011 3:01:36 PM

Pros: Wire is 12AWG.

Cons: Shortage unacceptable. 23' 6" and 36' was the total delivery from an advertised two rolls of 50'.

Overall Review: Unable to edit original review and won't change the rating, based on two roll purchases. The Egg provided a roll due to extreme the shortage, two 50’ rolls were provided and 59' 6" was obtained from both rolls. As always, the Egg is stand up regards backing its customers. I do not recommend Cables unlimited however, one roll discrepancy of a few feet would have been tolerable, though not acceptable; but two rolls short to the tune of one roll is ridiculous. I hope the Egg gets reimbursed.

HDMI12/31/2010 11:22:02 PM

Pros: It works, perhaps

Cons: Just realized WHO I bought this from Cables Unlimited and ironically the HDMI is a REPLACEMENT for their dead HDMI. It couldn't get worse after buying two rolls of 50' 12G wire and getting a bit more than one out of the two.

Overall Review: The Egg better do something about this company or I won't be back. I'll look around for 24AWG/Gold/6'/1.4, though it's hard to find any manfaturer that ACTUALLY lists their product specs. Cheeze, it's a hard days night.

Feet short12/31/2010 11:10:51 PM

Pros: It is 12AWG wire!

Cons: Expect around half the footage advertised. As I bought two rolls, check the other review. Dishonest company and by the way, although it was a cheap buy their HDMI 6' cable went South that I bought here as well about a year ago. Needless to say I'll never buy from Cables Unlimited again. The plugs are useless, but that's not why I bought the wire.

Overall Review: Hard to find reputable, fair dealers in the wire industry. Most people simply want wire, the type and footage they are willing to buy. 12AWG it was, bought two rolls and got one. Disappointed with the Egg advertising this manufacturer. Very long term Egg customer and buy almost everything electronic; including a large Plasma TV. Don't like getting ripped off. Still need to find a solution to the 24' shortage I have; this purchase should have left me with 16' 6" over what was needed.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Last night I got to hook the new Yamy 667, Klipsch center and Polk (Sort of) deal that came with Yamy [See Cables Unlimted fiasco.) Super, super fast Egg shipping (Always the most dependable merchant). The 505 is nothing short of spectacular and simply; awsome. Running high volume off the sub, zero off the reciever and no need to feed extra to this well engineered unit.

Dishonest12/31/2010 9:48:25 AM

Pros: 12G wire quality is at it should be and the exterior coating decently thick. That's where it ends.... Bought two 50' rolls, just to play safe.

Cons: Roll One: 23' 6" [Twenty tghree foot six inches] Roll Two: 36' [Thirty six feet.] Total from the 100' that was usable, math is simple here: 59' 6"; looks like just over one roll to me! Because I won't prfinance this fraud further I'll go somewhere else to obtain the 24' I'm short. Nice going, ruined my 5.1 setup out of the box. If anybody buys 12G cabl;e from Cables Unlimited after this review, you get what you should and don't complain.

Overall Review: Attempted to contact the Egg, but of course it's a Holiday and that's alright. I have been a customer prior to going public, back in 1992. This is the first time I have actually been ripped off by a manafacturer, I do not blame the Egg, but will if this company is not removed for the good of other customers. I had just spent a good deal on aHome Theatre setup and this ruined everything as I'm still short of wire. As always the Egg is the most reliable shipper and servicing web based seller on the net.

Cost me more than the drives worth for the RMA processes on several. Hopefully WD stays, WD. Don't expect a lot on cheap drives, but WD have been very solid for me.

Overall Review: Price for value, the Egg delivers! Bought an 8G as well, not broken that out yet. Another from another source 32G -Same price as the 8G, used extensively, happy camper. Was way overdue on flash media, particular as floppy drives are almost defunc, have not used one in years; others do, still. At least some I have worked on recently.
