Most Favorable Review

Nobody's perfect but this malware/virus scanner is mighty close.

Malwarebytes Premium 4.0 - 3 Device / 1 Year - Download
Malwarebytes Premium 4.0 - 3 Device / 1 Year - Download

Pros: Sorry Malwarebytes but I have literally nothing new to add to this review at this point and that, in and of itself, makes that actually quite a substantial COMPLIMENT! There's that and of course the fact that MBAM is pretty much EXCELLENCE PERSONIFIED.

Cons: They had a run of about 3 or so months worth of minor bugs (maybe longer) that were fairly annoying, didn't cause me any virus or malware issues among my family or friends but I can't speak for others. Nothing really to write home about but since it appears I should write something, this felt like the appropriate thing to do.

Overall Review: Just buy this product whenever you have any spare cash because the codes you buy don't start until you activate them so you can stockpile them all you want - JUST MAKE SURE YOU EMAIL YOURSELF THE CODES AND HOW MANY TIMES YOU CAN USE A PARTICULAR CODE (for newegg promos you get 3 one year uses for one code (purely awesome promo)) just make sure you then also email yourself how many codes you've used and/or given away as gifts and WHAT DAY YOU STARTED THE ONE YEAR CLOCK TICKING FOR ANY PARTICULAR CODE because if its a 3 for 1 then all 3 are then activated for the year now (essentially the only drawback) - this not nearly as complicated as I'm starting to think this sounds - lol - plus the prices we're talking about here, when you do the simple math, is ridiculously low and SO worth it that if you lost track of a few codes it would not bother you nor would it really hurt you financially.

Not all that Happy

ASRock 970 PRO3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock 970 PRO3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Able to overclock my FX-6100 nicely to just over 4.00ghz (from 3.3ghz). Ram functions great, able to change timings without problems.

Cons: Had to RMA first board, would not boot. Received 2nd board promptly and everything was fine until a month ago. All USB ports stopped working inexplicably (6 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0). Tried everything, back to default settings, re-install win 7, many MANY drivers - tested all hardware - no fix, USB still out. Finally had to buy a separate USB 4-port 3.0 card (PCI E) and that is working fine now. Another problem is on restart, USB connected keyboard (to one of the ports on the card) does not work - cannot get to BIOS - had to plug in PS/2 keyboard for that, yet after bootup the USB card functions fine and USB devices work ok from the card.

Overall Review: I really hate to let ASRock off the hook on this one but I am really annoyed at this board and A*SRock. I don't want another one of these boards and I just don't want to deal with another RMA process. I'll just buy another brand of motherboard next chance I get for a good deal and never buy A*SRock products again.

Excellent

Veho Pebble Explorer Dual USB Portable Power Bank- 8,400mAh
Veho Pebble Explorer Dual USB Portable Power Bank- 8,400mAh

Pros: Small, comes with a bag, has attachments for diff types of USB connections

Cons: 8400mAh is a little weak but NOT enough to take an egg off (multiple phone charges but just one full tab charge)

Overall Review: Its 5 star all the way if you get a good price (less than $20)

Great Value but Disappointing Mouse

Cougar Deathfire EX Gaming Hybrid Mechanical Keyboard and Mice Combo
Cougar Deathfire EX Gaming Hybrid Mechanical Keyboard and Mice Combo

Pros: Keyboard is excellent, keys are responsive and true. The build is on the light side but definitely feels solid and sturdy. Color schemes are nice and the settings work as advertised. Price on sale was truly outstanding ($34.99).

Cons: Mouse is the weak link. Unreliable, all settings other than the color scheme settings seem almost random after changing to specific settings. Occasionally, the mouse decides to not track at all. Highly disappointing but in reality I bought this primarily for the keyboard only, properly functioning mouse would have been a nice bonus.

Overall Review: Would have given a 3 egg rating because of the shockingly unexpected, poorly performing mouse but the price was too good to squash a second egg on it, especially since the keyboard is great and it was the real focus of my purchase. Therefore, for the price I paid, I definitely recommend the purchase of this bundle even just for the keyboard alone and if you get a fully functioning mouse then you have gotten yourself a 5 egg deal.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GVKB
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GVKB

Pros: It is in fact fully compatible with Ryzen chip (at least for me I guess judging from a few comments I read) just need to know how to tweak your bios a bit. Price was great on sale $125 this time and last - Obviously very fast RAM. This is the second set I bought of matching pair to increase to 32GB on my Ryzen liquid cooled system and no appreciable heat increase.

Cons: So, yes you do need to go into bios and tweak some stuff so you do need to know how to go in there and not brick your board or anything else for that matter or do other damage but I believe their Tech support is pretty G.Skilled (sorry couldn't resist) and prob walk you through it if you have any knowledge of going into bios at all.

Overall Review: My rig runs very fast and very cool (heatwise) and can do a variety of VR stuff very satisfactorily - not much glitching etc. (but primarily a GPU thing - still about 30% maybe 40% is CPU RAM factors)

Definitely Worth the Money

Pros: Performance in just about every area is generally excellent. Battery life is a pleasant surprise - under heavy use (watching hours of HD video - not gaming though) battery lasted quite a long time b4 it needed charging. Price is very good.

Cons: Had charging issue - would not charge (didn't possess other USB type C cords to try - don't know if it was cord or tab so had to RMA - replacement is fine). Had to waste quite a bit of time going through all the bloatware to figure out the 3 or 4 apps that are actually useful and disabling the rest (yep, you guessed it - can't be removed only disabled)

Overall Review: Looking for a higher end tab at a fair price? This is it. Its not top of the line anything but its definitely a step up from mid-grade and once again, the price is very competetive. I definitely recommend buying this tab. I'm sorry but I really have to mention a minor annoyance - prob just me - while I appreciate the potential of the faster USB-C, having only that port on this tab forced me to buy a few more extra C cords because I always leave charging cords around everywhere (plus already had a charging issue on first one) and I had accumulated at least 20-30 of the usual micro-USB cords that I can't now use on this without buying adapters. Btw, I have bought 3 (2 as gifts), I think its that good for the price.

Price Makes it a Good Product

Price made it a good prouct. Everything installed ok. Bit on the limited side for usable/practical features but again, on sale its worth it. Plus there's something to be said for simplicity over massive features.
