Pros: Does not work.
Cons: This product does not work. I tried with 2 different 2.5 mm devices. The plugs match but it doesn't carry the signal
Overall Review: I bought this one and it works fine. Newegg neds to carry functional products.
eForCity Premium Universal 3.5 mm Male to 2.5mm Female Stereo Headset
Pros: Great sound quality, Great battery life, light weight yet durable, even with batteries it's lighter than my wired set! Totally brings gaming to a new level!
Cons: Request 3.5 pin to 2.5 input cable to connect to a PC, requires proper room configuration to avoid popping
Overall Review: This uses the same frequency as G wireless (2.4 GHZ). That means your own as well as neighbor wireless signals can cause some popping sound. I relocated my router to the other end of the house and can use this 24' from my PC in another room through 2 sheets of drywall. Keep all wifi devices away from this bad boy!
For best result
1. Keep transmitter to your left, the antenna in these is exclusively in the left ear cup (mic side). You want to have the signal emitted from your left, not on your right side where it has to travel through your head to get to the reciever!
2. Disable G wireless, you must keep this away from a wireless transmitter. Using wifi with your xbox/PC? get a long Toslink cable and move the unit far away. You need to be closer to the transmitter than to other wifi devices.
3. Invest in some rechargeable AAA batteries
Pros: exactly as described
Cons: Paid more than equivalent DDR3... hate the price jack up on DDR2
Pros: Great deal on a bare-bone for older Intel processors.
Cons: PSU fan is very loud. Mine came with an atom sticker on the front
Pros: works as advertised
Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: nice and quite
Pros: Great top mount I/O
above average cable management
Accommodates a coolmaster V8 cpu cooler
Toolest driver install
Dust covers behind front mesh drive bays!!
Handle is very sturdy
Cons: Each fan and the LEDs have their own molex connector) there is also an exposed 2 pin splitter for multiple LEDs. This should have been wired to a single molex and stashed in the frame. instead it occupies the cable management area making it difficult to manage your own cables. The worst part are all the molex connectors which need to be laid flat to fit and are all a different length so you can't keep them together
No PSU gasket or rubber insulation
Poor insulation of HD noise (no robber gaskets)
Lack of filter for side panel
Overall Review: I like this case, and have been spoiled by significantly more expensive alternatives.
Newegg was awesome as always
Pros: SATAIII near advertised speeds
Cons: top mounting holes don't go all the way through, making creative mounting difficult
Pros: Got this for $60 after MIR. Nice finish. Lost 1 egg because cables could be a little longer for my Coolmaster Scout case and ASRock Z68 Extreme3.
Cons: The 8 pin PSU power line could be a bit longer.
Pros: This baby needs no introduction. 4.4 ghz on 1.28v. Coolmaster V8 keeps it under 42C
Cons: This doesn't generate nearly as much heat as my OC q6600. My Minnesota bedroom can get really cold and it looks like I'll finally have to buy a space heater
Pros: I love this RAM, only complaint is that I paid $55 instead of $50
Cons: ASRock Z68 Extreme3Gen3 loaded as 1333, I had to OC to 1600 . My MB voltage selection was 1.499 or 1.549, no 1.5v as an option
Pros: This board brings huge value. All the features you want, and the ability to upgrade to PCI 3 and ivy bridge when they come out. I paid $125 shipped... $50 under the closest competition.
RAID0 was painless and required no windows 7 drivers
Lots of fan headers, and the work well with Speedfan. Skip the molex fans and plug them right into the board and control them!
Running an i5-2500k @ 4.4 with +.1v offset
I did not know this had Intel SRT when I bought it WOW!!!
Cons: Small cons knock off an egg
1. Known bios glitch, if you plug a USB keyboard into the middle USB ports the system will not post... took my a while to figure out why the system would not post.
2. Did not recognize my DDR3 as 1600, had to manually increase from 1333
3. Only 2 SataIII ports limit you to RAID0 OR Intel SRT not both. I created a RAID volume and wont be able to incorporate SRT without a reinstall
Overall Review: Heat spreaders around CPU are not mount well. The move with a small amount of pressure. This made it difficult to mount a coolmasterV8 (Huge cooler). Alternately this makes them really easy to remove if I want to water cool them (and chipset)
Windows 7 retail install does not come with USB3.0 drivers. You can't use the blue USB ports (or the middle USB2.0 ports) with a USB keyboard to install windows
Pros: My i5-2500k stays below 42C when OCed to 4.4 (@1.28 volts) on lowest fan speed setting.
Comes with speed control knob, the large fan lets you keep it on low and still get great cooling
Cons: This thing is huge. It makes my Zalman look like a thimble.
Don't plan on using side case fans with this baby... it will block them.
Overall Review: When installing on an Intel, make sure you move the mounting pins on the top bracket to the correct position.
Pros: This has all the features you would want in a gaming keyboard.
Cons: The keys are light (which is great for faster key response) but it makes them a bit flimsier.
right side macro keys aren't useful for me as I have mouse macro keys
Overall Review: My G15 went out after 5 years (due to coffee spill not failure). I gave this a try because Thisisjimmy from checksix gaming uses one.
I ended up returning and getting a G51, the bigger keys on the logitech are spaced a bit more and much more solid. There might be a 1 millisecond delay because of key weight but it definitely handles SC2 button spamming better. I wish logitech would offer a no-lcd opton like they use to so I wouldn't have to spend the extra $17
Pros: Was good for the price
Cons: Bluray laser failed 13 months after purchase. In researching the problem I found it was pretty common at this age. It was lightly used in the 13 months (watched 40ish movies total)
Pros: Works like it should, and includes adapter for standard SD
Cons: It is so tiny I lost it
Overall Review: Great newegg shell shocker... only $7 with shipping
Pros: Works for a HTPC. I am completely satified
Overall Review: If I were to do it again I would wait for the nvidia ion platform... this is "too powerful" with a E5200... my peak processor usage in anything I do (bluray included) is 13%
Pros: Does what it is suppose to
Cons: the extra speed in unnecessary. You still need to buy Bluray software to get max quality play back
Overall Review: If I were to do it again I would by the 2x sony OEM version, it's cheaper!
Pros: Works like any HDMI cable... decent quality very cheap!
Pros: Very low profile, which is awesome for my HTPC
Cons: none of the frills of expensive ram, not overclockable
Overall Review: It's budget RAM
