Great Plex add-on

Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (H2G2-42)
Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (H2G2-42)

Pros: Works great with the Plex app to stream media from my Plex media server to my tv's. Have two of them so far, and they are awesome! Also with the appropriate HDMI settings on properly equipped tv's, these little guys can actually turn the TV on and flip to the correct input when you hit Cast. Very very cool!

Cons: Could not figure out how to insert it into my car to upgrade my car into a self-driving Google car. Google should make the documentation regarding this clearer.

Most Critical Review

Defective

OCZ Obsidian 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3OB1600LV4GK
OCZ Obsidian 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3OB1600LV4GK

Pros: Cheap DDR3 1600MHz

Cons: Memory was not stable. I tried different speeds, different timings, different motherboard slots, etc. Everything resulted in freezes, blue screens, and crashes. The ram was definitely defective. Swapping in some G.Skill ram from a different computer resulted in being fully stable. The memory also showed up as a different model in CPU-Z and the correct default memory profile was not recognized or listed at all.

Overall Review: I suppose you get what you pay for, but everyone likes to try to get a good bargain. Newegg's support on this matter has been absolutely fantastic! Speedy authorization on an RMA, restocking fee waived, prepaid shipping label issued.... Seriously, I wouldn't expect this kind of customer service anywhere else. This is what keeps me shopping here exclusively. I am putting my refund towards some G.Skill memory. There wasn't a nice rebate to be had, but its the same model I successfully swapped in, so I know it should work.

Worst Monitor Ever

Samsung CHG70 Series C27HG70 27" 2560 x 1440 (2K) 144Hz 1800R Curved Gaming Monitor, QLED, 1ms (GTG), AMD FreeSync 2, 2xHDMI, DP, USB, VESA Mount, Height/Tilt/Swivel/Pivot Adjustable
Samsung CHG70 Series C27HG70 27" 2560 x 1440 (2K) 144Hz 1800R Curved Gaming Monitor, QLED, 1ms (GTG), AMD FreeSync 2, 2xHDMI, DP, USB, VESA Mount, Height/Tilt/Swivel/Pivot Adjustable

Pros: They look nice.

Cons: I own THREE of these in a multi-monitor configuration and have had nothing but issues. -When coming back from sleep and cooled down, two of my monitors exhibit a horrendous distorted output for about 10 minutes until they warm up. -They exhibit pretty bad ghosting during panning camera motion while FreeSync is enabled. -One of them is incapable of firmware updating, even after RMA. -They often cut out and stay out when alt + tabbing from fullscreen games. Need to alt+tab several times to get the output back. I'll never buy a Samsung monitor again. And their support is horrible. Should have done more extensive homework and watched hands on reviews before buying these. Tuition. I foolishly just grabbed this since it had a "Freesync 2" certification but evidently that doesn't mean much. It is certainly no indication on quality.

Overall Review: Do not buy these.

Good bang for the buck, LOTS of bloatware.

Pros: Good amount of hardware for the money.

Cons: The amount of preloaded bloatware is truly becoming intolerable these days. I understand this is what helps the manufacturer recoup costs and drive price down, but I'd honestly be happier paying a higher price and having NOTHING preinstalled.

Impressively slow

Pros: Price point is attractive, and comes with Pro operating systems, which make it a very attractive low cost addition to a domain environment.

Cons: The computer has thus far been impressively slow. I'm not sure I can recall ever taking a brand new computer out of the box and having it be this slow, freezy, and laggy before even installing anything. I am currently uninstalling whatever bloatware I can to see how much that helps, and might throw another stick of RAM in it. Even with a RAM upgrade this would still be a very cheap computer, so maybe worth it.

Works great

Pros: Cables work fine, no problems. Standard micro usb cables, nuff said.

Cons: Would've liked some tracking information from the company. Didn't really know where my package was or when it would arrive, though it did arrive in a sensible amount of time.
