Most Favorable Review

Very nice player for the money!

Philips 2GB Flash MP3 Player with OLED Screen and FM Tuner (SA2925A/37)
Philips 2GB Flash MP3 Player with OLED Screen and FM Tuner (SA2925A/37)

Pros: This player is totally customizable. You can change the display pictures (wallpaper just include your own in the pictures directory), it displays album art where available , and more. The sound quality from the headphones was very impressive too and clear. Scanned the FM Radio stations without a problem and picked them up in one swoop. Even the correct frequencies are there too, and they lock onto the exact ones at that, and not faint duplicates of the same station it was able to pick up a few MHz away. Can also recover the player and refresh it if it ever crashes. A big plus? The $24.99 shell shocker price + free shipping!

Cons: I was initially confused by the buttons on this player. However I found out that the center of each edge of the player acts as a button. They could have included buttons on the edges such as up down, left and right. You will figure them out eventually when you click around on the screen, but those who might not know what they are doing might accidentally push too hard trying to get a feel for the button workings and might damage the screen.

Overall Review: It is very important that you read the instruction manual on how to use this player and charge the player to the maximum amount of power before you use it. If you need free legal music to get you started, I suggest visiting CNET's MP3.com website and checking out some independent artists. I am very satisfied with this player and hope everyone will enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.

Most Critical Review

Never did I have such a horrible experience then this

MASSCOOL UHB-330U Aluminum with mirror finish 3.5" IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure
MASSCOOL UHB-330U Aluminum with mirror finish 3.5" IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Well the thing is very portable for starters but thats about all the love Im going to give this product. Only purchased this because I gave my mom a newer computer, but we recycled the old one , it had a Seagate Baracuda IDE 20GB HDD , And she wanted her documents off of it and onto the new PC.

Cons: Never has assembling a hard drive case been this much of a pain. The directions were not the problem but its assembly routines are "tight fitting". Im not sure how long this was going to last. This case seems so cheaply made and flimsy to the max. When I mean tight fit, it really is, you have to make sure the board is inserted into the slot inside the case the right way, or the board will look all bent inside. Its transfer speeds are pretty slow, but then again I think its the drives technology is very slow. Cords are also super short. Not too thrilling. What can I expect for the price I paid?

Overall Review: So far the casing accepts NTFS, So theres no problems. Its been powered on for 6 hours straight and its cool to the touch as well. I would not use this case to install programs such as games on it , but maybe backup pictures , or something else. But thats about it. I wouldnt purchase this casing again. It seems like too much trouble.

Works like a brand new item!

BELKIN F7D5301RW Connect N150 Wireless Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Could not believe how nice this is. I often stay at a friends house and they don't have wireless internet in their house so I purchased this in expensive unit for use with my Netbook.

Cons: Nothing bad about this router whatsoever, but please keep in mind its limitations and carefully read its features before you use it, otherwise you may disappoint yourself in a product that may not suit your needs.

Overall Review: Like I said I only wanted to get online at a friends house while staying there for an extended period of time. I am not concerned about range because everything is in the same room. It works as it should and everything is plug and play out of the box with a preset password. If you do online gaming wirelessly this really is not the product for you, you may need to step up to something more professional at a higher price tag. For the price I paid this was in my budget and enough. It looked really nice for a reconditioned product and saved $50 versus the cost of a new one.

Great for Dell Optiplex GX260N

EVGA GeForce 6200 512MB DDR2 AGP 8X Video Card 512-A8-N405-KR

Pros: Actually made my Dell Desktop run faster with games, can't afford a new computer so this did the trick. Big , noticable performance compared to Geforce FX 5200.

Cons: At first, I thought my computer could not handle the card, the mouse pointer seemed a little slow but things leveled out after awhile.

Overall Review: I have a Dell P4 1.5ghz (no HT) , 1GB Ram , Win XP, and this card certainly brought my full size Optiplex GX260N Series tower up to date. Did not install Vista yet and probably don't plan to anytime soon until XP really retires. Runs fine in AGP 4x mode as mobo does not support 8x. Great buy considering price and rebate. No problems whatsoever.

Great Drive! Bad Software included

Sony Optiarc USB 2.0 CD/DVD Burner(external) Model DRX-S77U/B
Sony Optiarc USB 2.0 CD/DVD Burner(external) Model DRX-S77U/B

Pros: Drive works as intended. Less noisy then other drives I had before

Cons: Included Nero 9 software is complete garbage.

Overall Review: Tried this on a Windows 7 machine. Loaded the software and it slowed down the machine. Its crippled as crippled can be. Suggest using Ashampoo Burning Studio Free v6 if you want a more professional approach to basic CD/DVD Burning. Tried this on a Netbook running Kubuntu 10.10 and things works right. I use K3b to burn discs, K9 Copy for DVD Authoring, and VLC Media Player for DVD Playback. No coasters so far. Surprised at how compatible it is in Kubuntu. No complains at all. Works properly in all aspects. Was given to me as a gift. Kudos to the gift giver, and Newegg for the fast shipping.

Great Netbook

Acer Aspire One AOD255-2509 Diamond black Intel Atom N450(1.66 GHz) 10.1" 1GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook
Acer Aspire One AOD255-2509 Diamond black Intel Atom N450(1.66 GHz) 10.1" 1GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook

Pros: Intel Atom N450 , better battery life, much much brighter screen compared to the previous generation of netbooks, more slimmer and light weight, 1.3 mp Webcam.

Cons: The AC Adapter is cheaply made, System Recovery on this particular model takes almost 50 minutes. , Only 1GB Ram, no 720p smooth streaming on this model.

Overall Review: I got this model of Netbook on sale from another vendor other then Newegg which is the same model they are selling, its a wonderful Netbook no doubt and its a lot quicker then the previous Windows 7 Atom N270 netbooks I have owned. Got the battery to go to 3 hours and 30 minutes once. Adobe Flash is much better in performance comapared to using an Intel Atom N270 Processor but its still unable to play 720p videos in an acceptable manner, and also 3D performance has dropped slightly although the WEI reports this system is 2.4 (compared to the 2.0 on other models) One thing I did not like is the A/C Adapter. With the first week of usage the cord suffered a fray. I treat all my stuff lightly. Acer Support took care of this for me and is sending me a repacement adapter. I guess you could use electrical tape in the mean time? This Netbook is great for what it does, but I would buy a mouse if you have big hands and disable the touch pad, youll be hitting it too much if you dont disable it...
