Good drive. Nice price.7/30/2020 8:12:48 AM

Pros: I love having the speed and capacity of this drive.

Cons: For whatever reason, this and other barracuda drives just aren’t recognized by windows 10? I had to initialize this drive (and other barracuda drives) using my Mac to format it to exFAT where it was then recognized by Windows 10 to be reformatted to NTFS.

Overall Review: Sure I would recommend this drive, it just seems to be a little more work than the PnP experience I was expecting.

So far so good. Works well with XBOX One.11/25/2017 6:27:07 PM

Pros: -The casing is attractive and gives the product a feeling of higher quality than a standard enclosure. -Cooling appears to be more than adequate. A cool drive is a happy drive! -Very good value. This 4TB unit replaces a 3TB drive and enclosure that were cobbled together for the same price. -It's quiet enough that you do not hear it over the audible hisses and hums of everything else in the media cabinet.

Cons: -Included USB cable is shorter than I'd prefer. This is on an XBOX, and the cable is just barely long enough to fit my arrangement. -The power adapter has a 'slim' design, but still manages to crowd nearby sockets, if only just. -Only comes in black. Other WD drives are available in colors, I wish this one was too.

Overall Review: -As of right now, I can't recommend this drive enough simply based on price. It's a high quality, high capacity product.

Great Refurb12/11/2013 10:28:17 AM

Pros: Well packaged, included all OEM accessories + batteries for remote Great looks. Easy to set up. Seems to work on my TV so I'm hoping it works on my dad's TV because this is a gift.

Cons: Remote seems cheap - has a cheap feel when you hold it/push buttons. Batteries included are some terrible off-brand. How expensive is it - really - to include 2 decent AAA batteries? Sound bar seems to be designed for hanging rather than placing on a shelf which is odd seeing as the majority of people don't hang their TVs.

Overall Review: I may put rubber feet on the bottom of the soundbar to keep it from moving around on the glass shelf where it will be placed.

This is NOT your typical Forza12/7/2012 11:42:55 AM

Pros: This is a good game. Well put together and very polished. The premise of the game is a music festival and I have to say that I enjoy the music in the game. Fantastic character designs. Some of the best human modeling I've seen on a game. Why can't other games get it this right? There's always something happening and the game is designed to keep you playing to get more and go faster.

Cons: I did not install this game to my xbox hard drive so it may be the root of my complaints, but the menus and loading screens are VERY slow. I'm used to the quick and light menu functions of Forza 4. It's excruciatingly slow moving when you are trying to move through the menus. I get it that they are going for a different type of atmosphere in the game, but they've overcomplicated it and I really don't like it. The music is repetitive. Not a bother to me, but some people may get freak out after hearing the same song for the 100th time. The "open world" of Colorado looks big but its pretty small after just a few hours of play time.

Overall Review: I had really high hopes for this game and while it isn't a BAD game, I'll be trading it in soon. I hope Turn 10 has learned what they are best at and continue to support Forza 4.

Super Value12/4/2012 7:40:58 AM

Pros: Awesome Value from Newegg. Purchased Refurbished for $469 included 1 yr warranty Awesome size upgrade from my previous 32" LED technology for lower power consumption and instant-on backlight 120hz for more fluid motion tracking than lesser TV's Artificial surround sound for a more cinematic experience built-in ambient light sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness. Strong and heavy base is secure and even rotates! TV is very thin 5 HDMI ports and optical audio out! I was also pleased to see 3.5mm audio out. I don't prefer it, but the soundbar I purchased to go with this TV uses 3.5mm inputs and this works like a charm. Also great for parties when other people have their iThingys and want to plug them into an audio source.

Cons: Its a budget TV. You can tell that this isn't a $1200 Samsung. The MEMC fluid motion isn't as great as a more expensive TV with a better processor The remote is a master class in poor design. I genuinely don't like it. The surround sound is only good if you've got a soundbar to go with it. Definitely recommend a soundbar to improve low frequencies and overall clarity. The built-in speakers aren't bad, but they definitely aren't great. Ambient light sensor is right on the front of the TV and looks kind of cheap. TV is heavier than I expected. Maybe not really a con, but I expected a slim LED TV to weigh less. No legacy input support. You'll need a converter for anything that doesn't use HDMI

Overall Review: I'm glad I got the 1 yr warranty for free because this IS a refurb unit. I am going to purchase the extended warranty as well just in case. So far it's a great TV and TCL receives great reviews across the internet so I don't expect to have problems, but it is always better to be prepared.

Great gift12/4/2012 7:30:09 AM

Pros: This is a great gift idea for anyone who has Forza 3 and wants their friends or family to play it with them. This edition comes with unlock codes for Top Gear content and all cars/tracks for DLC Excellent value considering what early adopters paid for the game and content. This is really a great game for anyone looking for a racing sim.

Cons: Online modes can be a bit iffy even with the best connection. I bought this as a gift for my nephew for $17 and I've paid nearly $100 for the game and DLC a couple years ago!

Overall Review: Super value and a great gift. I can't wait to play this with my 12 yr old nephew and hopefully get him hooked on racing games instead of the violent shooting games his mother allows him...

Middle of the road12/4/2012 7:23:24 AM

Pros: This game is well made. EA's strategy of going back and forth between Black Box and Criterion Games is working very well for quality standards of the NFS titles. This particular edition comes with all of the DLC/extra goodies so you get the full experience without the extra effort. Has challenge modes for quick play so you're not limited to just playing online or campaign mode. Runs great on my low-rent system.

Cons: I would not have purchased this game if it wasn't $6 Its good and I don't regret buying it, but the player experience is a bit numb and disconnected in places. Its not the type of game you want to spend all night playing. If you do decide to power through it you'll be disappointed with how short it is. There were obviously many chances to include deeper story arcs for more varied gameplay, but it is clear the game was cut for time. Requires the installation of Origin to play.

Overall Review: For $6 this is a great value. System Specs Win7 x32 2gb DDR2 @ 800mhz 2.53ghz e7200 Wolfdale Gigabyte ep35-ds3l MSI GTX 460

Pros: This is a great all around motherboard. I used this for my first custom build and I have had absolutely zero problems. Really amazing to be honest. I was expecting at least some sort of trifle, but had none. Went into my case beautifully and easily and the layout was perfect for my other hardware. Plenty of room for lots of ram, 4 SATA plugs for extra storage, its great.

Cons: Does not support FireWire and my case has an unused FireWire hub which disappoints me greatly, but I have firewire on my Mac so I don't miss it too much.

Overall Review: I was building on a budget and this motherboard has really shined through and through. Currently running XP Pro, but considering Vista SP1 after I upgrade to 4gb RAM. I am confident this board will handle anything I throw at it. I definitely recommend to anyone like me who is building on a tight budget but still wants good quality parts.

Pros: Absolutely beautiful enclosure. Not what I expected at all. Great feel and build quality and everything went together perfect. The lights and polished chrome are a nice touch as well. Looks great on my desk :) It works perfectly with my iBook. I was so happy to have some extra storage for my little 60gb laptop, this is a great addition to my system.

Cons: Its huge. I know the hard drive takes up a certain amount of unavoidable space, but this is 2008 and technology can be made smaller and more efficient. Lots of unnecessary bulk for wires and plugs. No vents. I don't have problems with temps because the disk isn't constantly spinning, but if it were to spin for an extended period of time, there is no way for air to flow through this enclosure. Clear plastic stand is cheesy compared to the rest of the unit.

Overall Review: I'll be ordering another one soon :)
