Most Favorable Review

Great Product

NZXT CB-LED20-OR Sleeved LED Kit - Orange, 2 m
NZXT CB-LED20-OR Sleeved LED Kit - Orange, 2 m

Pros: Great color, great brightness, great length. I've never seen orange used as a primary lighting scheme, but when I got my NZXT Vulcan I loved it. The mounts are easy to use and have decent adhesive on them.

Cons: My only problem with this kit is the PCI slot controller. I understand that people want to be able to turn the lights on/off and adjust brightness, but in a mATX case, its not going to work. I just threw it in my drive bay with the fan controller (also from NZXT, great product) and left it on max brightness. Price. Come on, its a strip of LEDs. But, you get what you pay for.

Overall Review: Definitely would recommend this, especially with the Vulcan case. My friend bought the red version and it looks fantastic as well.

Most Critical Review

Cheap, but terrible backlight and picture quality

LG Electronics 43UH6030 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2016 Model)
LG Electronics 43UH6030 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2016 Model)

Pros: Cheap (got it with the Xbox One deal so it was basically a $200 TV) Nice UI

Cons: Tons of uneven backlighting Low quality picture even with a 4K HDR Blu-Ray source First one broke in shipping (thanks Newegg for taking care of the issue though!)

Overall Review: If you can get it under $250, go for it. At $450, no way. It looks worse than 1080P TVs I've owned, I have no idea how.

Pretty Good

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Pros: Speedy. Cheap. XMP loaded correct timings and speed on boot.

Cons: One stick was DOA. Already sent off to G.Skill for RMA. I had to MemTest to figure it out, but that wasn't even the worst of my problems, lol.

Overall Review: I'm going to buy another kit so they match. Just one stick is still pretty fast.

Nice Fan

NZXT FN-200RB 200 mm Case cooler
NZXT FN-200RB 200 mm Case cooler

Pros: Great airflow, not excessively loud*, and matches my other fans color scheme. I have the NZXT Vulcan and this fan fits perfectly on the side of the case. It looks nice (wish it had orange LEDs to match the others) and moves quite a bit of air. Sleeved cable is a nice bonus.

Cons: * Louder than 4 other fans combined. Honestly, I use headphones, so I can't hear it. And compared to a friend's computer, this is silent. To give you an idea, its about 80% fan speed on ATI6xxx series cards, maybe a little more.

Overall Review: Would definitely recommend if you have a NZXT case. Lots of the negative reviews are because its not a 200MM fan, its 192 or whatever. Its meant for NZXT cases, even if its not explicitly stated.

Awesome Game

Rock Band Bundle Xbox 360 Game
Rock Band Bundle Xbox 360 Game

Pros: This game is just purely amazing, don't listen to the people who try to tell you differently. If you liked Guitar Hero, then you will love this game just as much. You get to play Lead Guitar, Bass/Rhythm Guitar, Drums, and Vocals. I didn't test out the vocals, mainly because it would sound pretty bad, but it seems pretty cool. The guitar playing is a little bit harder then Guitar Hero, but still not enough for it to be a con. The effects on the guitar are pretty cool.

Cons: The drums are very difficult to play. They might not be so hard if you play drums in real life, but the pedal will start to confuse you. The Fender Stratocaster that is included, seems a little flimsy, but it seems to be able to take it.

Overall Review: Other then those little cons, this game is amazing. If you have ever played Guitar Hero, then this shouldn't be a change for you. You get new and better songs. As always, Newegg has the best shipping ever. I ordered it with 2 day shipping and it got there a day before UPS even thought it would, lol.

Who wants a bad power supply?

APEVIA Dark Side ATX-AS600W-RD 600 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Power Supply
APEVIA Dark Side ATX-AS600W-RD 600 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Cool color combo, high wattage, 3 fans, and SLI support.

Cons: It lights on fire.

Overall Review: Well, after about 3 years, this power supply seems to have kicked the bucket. Yesterday, I turned on my computer and didn't receive a POST, so I shut it down. Then when I tried to turn it back on the little LCD screen on my case flashed, and since I just moved the computer into a desk, I saw smoke coming out of the little cabinet. When I opened it, more smoke came out. So I pulled out the computer and there was a little flame coming out of the power supply. Up until that, it was a pretty good power supply.
