Most Favorable Review

Good for the price and then a little more

AIPTEK A-HD Blue 5.0 MP CMOS 2.4" 270° Rotation LCD 2x Digital HD Camcorder
AIPTEK A-HD Blue 5.0 MP CMOS 2.4" 270° Rotation LCD 2x Digital HD Camcorder

Pros: -Low Price -Lightweight -size -Good video for price -Battery life -file sizes are small -TV out allows it to record tv :) -Screen size is nice for the price as well -zoom isnt that bad -alot of extra settings to play with

Cons: -still pictures are pretty ehhh -when flash is on, you can tell its what took the picture -as the others pointed sound is not the greatest, i wouldnt venture to say it was horrible. -videos output to .mov, which is cool. but you're gonna have fun trying to upload those anywhere. -but then again, zoom isnt that great -it is by far, Not HD

Overall Review: Try to avoid taking stills,use a true digital or not digital camera. Im using this one as a play around cam, while ill save the more awesome stuff for the HF100 im getting in :) Final verdict. i am happy with this purchase. its 125 bux that i know ill put to good use, when out and about

Horrible

Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK
Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK

Pros: Its an Enclosure. i got it with another item for the bundle price, so i cost me next to nothing

Cons: Nothing internal to protect it from moving around. Works when it wants to, and i mean that literally. If you have to pay more than lets say 5 bux for this thing. then forget it. i have to unplug and replug it several times just for it to be recognized

Overall Review: I would never buy this item by itself.

Buyer Beware!! Great laptop If you get the right AC adapter

ThinkPad W510 Laptop Intel Core i7 1.70GHz 4GB Memory 320GB HDD 15.6" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit, 18 Month Warranty, Dock Included
ThinkPad W510 Laptop Intel Core i7 1.70GHz 4GB Memory 320GB HDD 15.6" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit, 18 Month Warranty, Dock Included

Pros: - i7 Quad-core with hyper threading - Includes Docking station and 18 month warranty Download the Lenovo update tool and getting drivers becomes a simple process. Feels robust - Opening the laptop was simple, remove a handful screws and slide the keyboard. - Has plenty of power options for most scenarios - Has 2 USB 3.0 ports - flashing bios was very easy - Docking station was easy to use and has plenty of display ports, adds an additional 6 USB ports in the back.

Cons: - ***Received item with 90W adapter, requires 135W adapter to run properly. Newegg on Facebook made it right though*** - Laptop has a network adapter white-list so I can't use the Wireless AC network adapter I had purchased. - Heavy - Battery protrudes out the back - Matte LCD - can run hot - Has dual-channel memory slots. However to run dual-channel. you cant just open the back memory panel as they alternate. each spot has a memory slot from a different channel. Consult the hardware tech manual. - Glad that the Trackpoint button cap comes off, was getting in the way( i think mine just wasn't secure to begin with)

Overall Review: Overall great laptop at a good price. Purchased after previous laptop started to smoke. Installed a SSD and the laptop screams ***Make sure to check your power manager to confirm what size adapter you get. The 135W is a very large brick compared to the smaller 90W. The power manager will tell you under the battery menu.*** The cons are minor things that dont take away from the power. Removed 1 egg because of AC adapter confusion

Great for the price

Great Laptop, great Price

MSI Laptop GT627-216US Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium
MSI Laptop GT627-216US Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium

Pros: -Turbo mode -webcam -4gb of ram (3.5 for us 32-bit users) -9800M GS Laptop works great, can play most games on the highest res supported by the monitor.

Cons: -rubber feet on my cam off -Visat 32-bit -little heavier than most laptops(to be expected) -flex keyboard

Overall Review: I would have given this a 4.5 but cant. the user before me complaining about price because he's young..thats ridiculous. this is the same price if you were 10 or 100. just wished it had a bigger HDD.

Very Powerful card

MSI GeForce GTX 260 896MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N260GTX-T2D896-OCv4
MSI GeForce GTX 260 896MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N260GTX-T2D896-OCv4

Pros: -Very powerful -played Crysis with 1.2 patch at 1280x1024 on very high settings, with i believe 4xAA and 4xAF (could be higher,see cons) had a constant 20-30 frames -had to use 32-bit Crysis, Win7 didn't like 64-bit version -can be used with tmpeg express and CUDA,which was a big selling point for me.haven't actually tried it for myself

Cons: -Long card -fan size compared to overall length of card sparks my curiosity. -Requires 2 PCI-e power connectors,making SLI very hard to do unelss you have Molex to PCI-E adapters -takes up 2 slots.

Overall Review: 2 days after i first put this in my rig, fan stopped working. have already sent card back to newegg to get replacement. Seems as if v3 cooler should have been used. I like MSI, i have nothing bad to say about there products that i wouldn't say about other companies. there are always defective or products that fail. i have purchased MSI Motherboards and have a GT627-us laptop by MSI. they continue to prove that there products are very good
