Most Favorable Review

Great value

HP Desktop Computer Elite 8000 Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.00GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Intel GMA 4500 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
HP Desktop Computer Elite 8000 Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.00GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Intel GMA 4500 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Pros: Nice computer. I upgraded to Windows 10 right away and put in a old AMD 5770 video card. My nephew games on it all the time, works great for older games and newer games on lower settings.

Cons: No 6-Pin PCI cable to plug in a video card.

Overall Review: To use a video card, I bought a sata to 6-pin adaptor for $4.00. Works great now.

Questionable Build Quality

ASUS - Gaming Laptop - 15.6" 120 Hz IPS-type - AMD Ryzen 7 3750H (up to 4.0 GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 16 GB RAM - 256 GB SSD - 1 TB HDD - Windows 10 Home - TUF (TUF505DU-EB74)

Pros: Booted up fast, and everything seems to but running great so far. Screen, keyboard, and the overall look is top notch.

Cons: When I unboxed the laptop, I was immediately concerned by a rattling sound coming from within the laptop. Before I could even turn it on, I had to remove 10-ish screws, pry off the back panel and see what was going on. Not a great first impression. Turns out there was a loose, tiny silver screw floating around inside. I was able to remove it, but I have no idea where it came from and could not figure out if it fell out from the hardware. Fingers crossed it was just an extra and not something vital to keeping my laptop together.

Overall Review: If nothing goes wrong in the next 6 months, I will attempt to bump up the rating, but as of now I am concerned.

Great Camera, Weak Accessories

Canon PowerShot G15 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom + 6pc Bundle 16GB Accessory Kit
Canon PowerShot G15 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom + 6pc Bundle 16GB Accessory Kit

Pros: The camera itself is fantastic. Great in low light, cool depth of field effects, fairly user-friendly even for a rookie like me, feels like a quality built camera. Heavy and beefy, very well built. Big SD card for free!

Cons: The kit that comes with this is kind of a joke. The camera case is NOT the one shown in the pictures and is too small for the camera. The tripod is NOT the one shown in the pictures either. It comes with a weird bendy plastic tripod that is about 5 inches tall.

Overall Review: The kit is all free basically, so I can't be too mad, but I do wish the case fit the camera. Until I go buy another case, the camera is in the styrofoam sleeve that it was packed it. Better than nothing I guess.

Great deal on a great product!

Pros: Photo and video quality is great outdoors and underwater! I keep it in my tackle box, so I always have it handy while fishing or just being out on the water. Perfect for pools, too. I haven't done this yet, but it would be a good option for a camera to bring to a bar. No need to worry about spills!

Cons: Flash seems too powerful for most indoors, up-close photos, some photos seem washed out.

Overall Review: This is a great little camera for a little price. Get a floating wrist strap (also for sale on newegg) and get in the water!

maps...

GARMIN 2.1" GPS Navigation
GARMIN 2.1" GPS Navigation

Pros: Small, light, nice color, seems very responsive. Good for geocaching if you have the right maps......

Cons: base map is garbage. only has the freeways in my town, no major streets. also, maps will cost you around $100. :/

Overall Review: nice product, but be prepared to spend the same amount on maps as you did on the unit.

Love It!

Pros: Keys feel great, love the backlit keys and color options. 2 USB pros in the keyboard.

Cons: Currently, none.

Overall Review: Before this, I had the non-backlit keys version, but I really wanted this one and am not disappointed. Both are great buys!
