Battery is worn out

HP EliteBook 2760p Multi-touch Tablet PC - Intel i7 2620M Processor (2.7 GHz, up to 3.4 GHz Turbo Boost), 4 GB RAM, 160 GB Intel SSD, Webcam, 3G, Win 7 Pro - Fast and Ready for Win 10
HP EliteBook 2760p Multi-touch Tablet PC - Intel i7 2620M Processor (2.7 GHz, up to 3.4 GHz Turbo Boost), 4 GB RAM, 160 GB Intel SSD, Webcam, 3G, Win 7 Pro - Fast and Ready for Win 10

Pros: Overall I'm happy with my purchase. It took an entire day to set up after the windows 10 upgrade failed, leaving me with no operating system found, and with no optical drive It wasn't exactly simple to get it running again but Now that I've updated the OS and maxed out it's RAM at 16GB this is a really, REALLY fast little machine :) This is a sturdy little convertible with pressure sensitive stylus input that I intend to use as an art-pad and seems it will fulfill that purpose just fine, once I replace the spent battery it came with..

Cons: The one major disappointment is that it didn't come with a new battery, and the one it did come with doesn't even last an hour on a full charge. Additionally, there was a loose screw rattling around inside the chassis that was easy enough to relocate where it belonged.

Overall Review: You get what you pay for, but it was mostly still worth it in this case... I really hope they're willing to do something about the worn-out battery they shipped it with... but at the same time, i'd be afraid they'd just send me another used/unreliable one.

I really want to like it...

Arlo Pro Security System - 2 x Rechargeable Battery Powered Wire-Free HD Night Vision Indoor / Outdoor Security Camera with Audio and Siren - VMS4230-100NAS
Arlo Pro Security System - 2 x Rechargeable Battery Powered Wire-Free HD Night Vision Indoor / Outdoor Security Camera with Audio and Siren - VMS4230-100NAS

Pros: Truely wireless, local storage and free 7 days of cloud storage

Cons: Support is extremely slow to follow up. One of my cameras was DOA and they were quick to send a replacement, which also seems to be defective and triggers every minute or so for no reason... I've been waiting for almost two weeks to recieve the return lable for the first one, and about a week and a half for a better follow up on the second.. They seem to default to removing the battery for 2 minutes and removing/readding it to the system but cant seem to provide troubleshooting steps beyond that... It seems responses are several days apart and that makes it frustrating when they respond by repeating the same instuctions you've already tried. There is a bit of a delay when live-viewing through the cameras that makes the two-way audio almost unusable, but it's nice that they record. Needs better options for configuring push notifications. You either get too many or none at all.

Overall Review: Overall it would be great if their support would step it up a bit.

Seems unreliable...

Loftek Nexus 543 Outdoor Wireless/Wired Waterproof IP Camera w/ Night Vision (Silver)
Loftek Nexus 543 Outdoor Wireless/Wired Waterproof IP Camera w/ Night Vision (Silver)

Pros: Kinda works... streams ok anyways, and picture isn't too awful. I guess you get what you pay for.

Cons: software and web UI are extremely buggy... kinda want to say their just broken. The IE page doesn't work at all, and download link (for the IE plugin) isn't even click-able - but does ok-ish in firefox. Only seems to work for half of the time it's armed for motion detection. Have to set a separate "event" schedule for before and after midnight - never seems to work after midnight even though its set to motion detect/record and has several log entries listed in the web UI, but it didn't record or snap anything... The field to select storage location in the Web UI does nothing when clicked along with several other buttons that control basic functions between the Web UI and the IPC Monitor software... if it doesn't work in one, it tends to work in the other though... settings changed in the IPCMonitor software don't show on the Web UI...

Overall Review: Hopefully they update their software soon, seems ancient and these issues may be partly due to using windows 8.1

Still Waiting for my Product keys....

ESET Smart Security 2015 - 1 PC - Download
ESET Smart Security 2015 - 1 PC - Download

Pros: None yet, but it's not ESET that's at fault. I can see masked product keys under my order history, so apparently they ARE there, i just haven't been provided them in any kind of timely fashion....

Cons: I ordered two copies of this a few days ago and wansn't provided product keys to activate either. I've been waiting days to hear back from newegg... Being a regular customer, I'm rather surprised by this as they've never failed me before, or taken this long to provide support....

Overall Review: please hurry up, this is a 2 second fix. holidays or not, you're not THAT busy.

Performs the bare minimum

Wacom ACK40401 USB Wireless Accessory Kit
Wacom ACK40401 USB Wireless Accessory Kit

Pros: It does cut the cable... a bit...

Cons: The Signal doesn't even carry accurately over 12ft (TV-to-couch) which was disappointing to say the least... and the battery life leaves MUCH to be desired after degrading rapidly, to less than 30 minutes of life in under 3 months of use...

Overall Review: I do love my tablet, but the cable wacom includes with tablets is ridiculously short in order to coerce people into buying this, and this barely performs the described function - signal distance is so short you're basically still stuck at the desk. May as well buy a USB extender, or a better USB to micro USB cable.

No, just no.

USB 2.0 Wireless Gaming Controller Receiver Adapter For Xbox 360 Xbox360
USB 2.0 Wireless Gaming Controller Receiver Adapter For Xbox 360 Xbox360

Pros: It Kinda Works.... after reinstalling drivers every single time i want to use it....

Cons: Every single time i want to use this, i have to completely reinstall the drivers for it to properly detect the controller. Even when it does work, input detection is choppy and inaccurate. Buttons have to be pressed extra hard to register, and after rebooting, a complete driver reinstall is required for it to detect the controller properly again.

Overall Review: Save yourself the headache and get a different one - It's still not worth paying the idiotic price for an xbox-one controller (they finally decided to "let them" work natively with PC) but even getting a generic PC game-pad would be a better option than this piece of junk.

Painfully slow delivery time... 4 days just to "process"

I'm still deciding whether to add or subtract an egg... if my order ever arrives... Most merchants process orders within hours of them being placed, this particular seller took multiple days and even subtracting that, it's now well beyond the described delivery window of 5-7 days. The tracking number provided only results in an error message.
