Most Favorable Review

Great CPU

AMD Sempron 64 3000+ - Sempron 64 Manila Single-Core 1.6 GHz Socket AM2 Processor - SDA3000CNBOX
AMD Sempron 64 3000+ - Sempron 64 Manila Single-Core 1.6 GHz Socket AM2 Processor - SDA3000CNBOX

Pros: Great Price...

Cons: Nothing

Overall Review: As far as everyday Web Surfing, movie watching or music playing this is all you need... Dont waste money on anything more expensive unless you have a need for games or a workstation... I own a opty 170@ 2.6 and performal single normal tasks I cant tell a difference

Most Critical Review

Get a nice pair of Sens

Turtle Beach TBS-1110-01 Circumaural Ear Force X-51 5.1 Surround Sound Headset
Turtle Beach TBS-1110-01 Circumaural Ear Force X-51 5.1 Surround Sound Headset

Pros: Price isnt bad... Removable Boom Mic.. Not uncomfortable to wear..

Cons: 5.1 is VERY buggy in games.. I have tried both onboard sound and my xtrememusic card.. there are many instances where u are in a game and you cant hear anything.. such as looking slightly in one direction can make it so you cant hear the gunshots anymore.. they actually sound better when using the "surround" emulation..

Overall Review: I forced myself to buy 5.1 headsets because I had convinced myself it would be soooo much better. This is my second pair of 5.1's and I have to say getting a nice quality set of Sens or something and using emulation on your card would be a MUCH more enjoyable situation. JMHO

Get waht you pay for

SCEPTRE X226W-1920 Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DCR(10000:1) 1000:1, US Warranty
SCEPTRE X226W-1920 Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DCR(10000:1) 1000:1, US Warranty

Pros: Good Price, decent looks.

Cons: This is a review for Sceptre more than it is for this monitor. I purchased a Sceptre 22" lcd from newegg in 11/06 and exchanged that one with Newegg once due to faulty dvi. Sometime mid 08 the dvi died again and I just started using the vga instead, well that died this month. So I "guess" I got almost 4 years out of a monitor that cost me $350. at the time. Buyer beware and believe all the reviews about poor quality.

Good Looking Case

LIAN LI PC-V351B Black Aluminum Micro ATX Desktop Computer Case
LIAN LI PC-V351B Black Aluminum Micro ATX Desktop Computer Case

Pros: Great Looking. Quiet. Great Craftsmanship

Cons: The only con is Lian li could have used the space a little bit better with the orientation of the psu, hdd rack and exhaust fan

Overall Review: Using this case as a htpc and its silent with the fans runing off the mobo headers, no controller. Used a xigmatek cobra for cooling and it fits perfectly. Put a 3.5 adapter in one of the 5.25 bays for a 3rd HDD. Its nice having the drives facing the side so you can't see the light is blinking while watching a movie. Just have to get rid of the bright blue power switch led :)

SCEPTRE X246W-1080p Black 23.6" 2 ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DCR(40000:1) 1000:1, US Warranty

Pros: Price

Cons: Sketchy electronics

Overall Review: Had the previous version for a few months and the DVI failed. RMA'd and the 2nd one last just over the 1 year return policy. Only VGA works randomly now. Buyer Beware spend some time with Google/Sceptre/DVI .
