Pros: I was looking for a replacement monitor and really didn't want to spend too much on it. I was replacing a burned out Acer that was about 7 years old and part of my triple monitor setup. Found this monitor for a super low price and its a Dell.
Great color, bright (I had to turn down the brightness so it would look like the other 2), vesa holes under stand mount. DVI & VGA plus USB ports.
Can't go wrong with this monitor.
Cons: None that I have found so far.
Overall Review: Unit was packaged well. Shipping took a little longer than typical Newegg shipping, but overall good shipping time.
Pros: Small size, quick, easy to access components and of course the Intel logo sound when you open the box.
Cons: You have to read the acceptible ram chart. Now while it will probably take any 1.35 volts ram. best not to take too much of a chance on it. I didn't read the part where it said to get 1.35 volt ram. (IT actually does not say you must get it...It should) I instead gotthe cheaper 1.5 volt stuff. Well the unit won't even turn on, No internal speaker so you can't hear any bios beep codes. There is however a flashing power button that itdicates the ram is the culprit. RMA'ed the 1.5 got the 1.35 and all is right with the universe once again.
Overall Review: The ram I picked up for this unit was CT2KIT51264BF160B. And it is working fine. All in all it was only a few dollars more, which I spent more RMA'ing the wrong stuff. Lesson Learned...Read the manual
Pros: Supports 4 monitors in win 7. Good resolution. The adapter cables are good to have and it can come with different cable adapters depending on which configuration you choose.
Cons: It will not support 4 monitors in win xp. Found this out the hard way. Could have found it out the easy way by reading the microprinting on the box, but I didn't. The adapters are good but you still need to buy either display port or hdmi cables or whatever configuration you are planning to use. Instead of giving you the adapter and thus building in another failure point, just supply a standard 6 foot cable. If you need bigger you can buy bigger. Just saying.
Pros: Nice machine. Worked out of the box. Has windows 7 Pro with proper COA. This one has a 750GB HDD with a clean load including Security Essentials and Open Office 3.3 pre-installed. 1 Year warranty is good add-on.
Cons: The unit looks like it went through world war 3. There were huge dust bunnies in the unit and it was never cleaned. Maybe someone ran a rag over the top, but that's it. It said "Refurbished", but this is not what I call refurbished, this is Used or off lease at best. The case it heavily scratched and marred.
Overall Review: Don't sell a machine as refurbished when all you did was slap a new pre-load HDD in it and throw a COA on it out the door it goes. Tell people the machine is off-lease or used. Really, most of the appearance is cosmetic damage. The true test is how it performs. So far the unit is performing well. I like the clean pre-load with the anti-virus and office programs. Once this machine is stuck under a desk no one is going to notice the scratches. I just wish someone would have at least blown the machine out to make it look more presentable.
Pros: Well the size is a definite pro. The number of usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports, built in speaker, WIFI and DVI.
Cons: The unit comes with an installation CD for drivers and such. However seeing as the unit does not have a CD drive in it, it probably would have been a little more intuitive on Foxconn's part to put a 1GB flash drive with the unit with all the stuff the CD contains. That would have impressed me more so then I was when I first opened the package. So for installation you have to either have a USB cd drive or move the contents of the disc to a flash drive yourself. Not a big deal, but an extra step.
Overall Review: Updates are mandatory with this unit. It started out very slow on the internet, painfully slow at first. After all the updates were installed, it's been great. I mean it's not as fast as my i7 core, but at half the price of the chip alone, not bad. If you are looking for a unit to surf the web with and other basic things, then this is a great start. Add a little ram for under 20 bucks and a 500 GB or so hard drive and you are done. Of course the OS is also extra, if you go with winblows. (no that is not a typo) The unit is very responsive and has no problem keeping up with me. As a matter of fact I'm writing this review on it now.
Pros: Everything fit well. The unit powered up without any problems and ran like a champ. The case is solid and has a nice weight to it.
Pros: This is fairly good unit. I was tired of the over the ear design that gave very poor sound quailty. THis unit fits in the ears, securely, and the sound quality was very good.
Cons: The pairing can be a little confusing, with the red light, then the blue light, flashing, blinking... Once paired operation is good. The volume buttons are flakey at best.
Overall Review: Overall the unit is stylish and works well. Plus it's the same one that they use on NCIS: Los Angeles. The geeky guy always has it in his ear. Now thats got to mean something, right?
Pros: Nice solid design, very quite.
Cons: This unit will not work with the SA 8300HDC. THe big difference being the C. Contacted Apricorn and they have confirmed my fears that it is a known issue with the 8300 HDC and TWC. So basically I have a very expensive external HDD...Great.
Overall Review: Really would like to have known that this would not work with my unit. I figure when it says "SA 8300 Series" that should indicate that it will work with all 8300 unit. Guess not.
Pros: This thing is sweet. Drop any SATA drive in and off you go. Great for recovering data from a downed system or laptop. You used to have to put the hard drive in another system, fire that system up and hope it found the hard drive. With this, drop the HDD in, plug it in and wait a few seconds and viola.......a new drive apears. Backup, nice and easy!
Cons: I wish they made one this nice for an ATA drive.
Pros: Installed this ram into a Dell 1100. The system would not recognize either stick. Tried seperately and togther, nothing. Tried same 2 sticks in an IBM T30, worked great. Popped a PC2700 333Mhz stick in the 1100, she fired right up. Strange RAM.
Cons: Someone else here had mentioned that they used this ram in a Dell 1100 and it worked right out of the box. I guess I got a monday morning set or sticks. Specs are all correct, should have worked, but alas...Didn't.
Overall Review: Newegg as usual, top notch. Ordered thursday, had it friday.
Pros: The unit so far has been performing very well. Just with the simple navs I gave it, the directions were spot on. Can't go wrong with this product.
Cons: Nothing has caught my attention to say.
Overall Review: Newegg has done it again. Ordered on Tuesday received on Wednesday. Now that is service. My refurb unit came with AC adapter and the cig adapter plus all the usual stuff. Unit looks brand new, could not tell the difference.
Comments: This printer is a champ for the money. Fast and good print quality. Had it up and running in a few minutes. Nice thing is that it has both the LPT and USB ports. Worked perfect with 2003 server right out of the box.
