Pros: Coffee does taste good and is quite hot .
Cons: The carafe drips coffee no matter how slow you pour a cup of coffee. Called Bunn and the sent me a new one , but still the same results. A huge design flaw that should have never went into production. The coffee maker will sometimes release water before its finished boiling. I thought Bunn was suppose to be top of the line in coffer makers?
Overall Review: Can't wait to toss it in the trash.
Pros: Bought 2 of these 560 Ti's and currently running them in SLI. Super stable in WinXP. These run very quiet and cool. I like that they are about an inch shorter than the ATI 5850's. Power connectors are on the side of the card instead of the rear which would have caused connections issues.
Cons: two 560's do cover a couple of PCI slots . Had to buy a PCIe soundcard.
Overall Review: I've had no visual problems or glitches. Overclocking CPU and Video card I was able to reach 90,000+ with 3Dmark 2001 SE . Yes it's an old benchmark but I like it .
Pros: responsive keys - feedback sounds and feels like mechanical . all keys have the same pressure response and makes for less typing errors
Cons: would like to see blue back lit keys .
Overall Review: when comparing to the Logitech G510. I noticed that G510 feedback was inconsistent throughout. I had both keyboards hooked up and did several tests and found that the Sidewinder x4 is the best.
Pros: One of the best built cards. Power connectors are place on the side freeing up space and allowing for better cable management. Very quiet at all speeds. Since this card is overclocked very little from the factory, there is more room to play with.
Cons: No rebate
Overall Review: I installed the latest nvidia drivers only. Then I installed MSI Afterburner- one of the best O/C programs around. I know that 3DMark2001 SE is old but I still use for a basic benchmarking. Got 84,764 - 3DMark2006 - 28488.
N E W E G G i s the B E S T !!
Pros: Looks Good
Cons: Multiple reboots, does not recognize 2 out of three sata drives. Won't install AI Suite II, I've installed 2 versions of bios 1003 and 1053 and still same problems. Coming from a cold reboot it will sometimes lock up.
Overall Review: I've been married to this board for the last 3 days and it's been nothing but trouble. It plagued with problems.I've installed many motherboards in the past and never had one that was this problematic.
Pros: Faster than my 8800GTS ! Fan is very quiet and seems to run cooler than the 8800GTS. Installed latest drivers without ant problems . EVGA has great customer support along with outstanding warranty. newegg is the best !
Cons: This card is a little long , so measure first .
Overall Review: I first purchase an Radeon 4850 . What a mistake , I had to force the card to match my screen resolution. I noticed pretty substantial frame rate drop compared to my 8800GTS.
Stick with Nvidia !
Pros: Works perfect with my Asus 1000HE ! Newegg is best !!
Cons: Shipping took a couple days longer due to USPS.
Overall Review: I wish I would have bought my ASUS 1000HE from Newegg.The one I got from BestBYE is not a true 1000HE.
Pros: Got this to use with my Kenwood Receiver KDC-X792 that supports USB port. It's lightweight and the black plastic housing looks nice.
Cons: First off it's slow compared to the Cruzer Titanium Plus drive. You can see a difference initial access and when viewing folders and songs.
Another problem is that the LED light is amber in color and always blinks on and off every second .As where the Titanium is a blue LED that is always on but dims a little while being accessed.
Overall Review: For about 10.00 more you can get one of the best USB flash drives , Titanium Plus. Don't forget to download the U3uninstall utility if you don't want all that bloat wear that comes on the drive.
Pros: I'm running all my games at 1280x1024 with anisotropic & antialiasing set @16X. Image quality is the absolute best I'v ever seen.Using RivaT**er I was able to set the fan @ 100% with minimal fan noise.Coreclock 620 memory clock 830 and super stable.
Cons: The price dropped forty bucks 2 days after ordering it.
Overall Review: E6400 @2800 Asus P5W-DH ,G-Skill DDR2 @800,Audigy 2.
NEWEGG does it again. Reliable ordering and fast shipping .
Pros: I was reluctant giving up my Viewsonic CRT and I wish I would have done it sooner. I'am amazed by the deep color and sharp resolution that this monitor can produce.Unreal Tournament 2004 looks like a new game. BF1942 is so sharp looking..better sniper kills! Nascar Racing ..sharp,sharp detail!!
Cons: Ghoasting?? Very minimal and only exterior view while flying in BF1942...But noway a problem.
Overall Review: I bought a second one for my wife!!
Comments: This should be the standard for all PC Gamers. It's heavy and rock solid, great feel with excellent feedback.Keyboard layout is not cluttered with all those multimedia keys that just get in the way. The backlight with True Vu keys are so cool. Best investment for less than 50 bucks. BTW the volume and mute keys work in BF1942 without any software!
