Perfect for the office

Keurig B30 Black Mini Brewing System
Keurig B30 Black Mini Brewing System

Pros: Coffee and it is compact and it fits on my desk in my office and I don't have to spend $3.59 on a coffee when I can pop in a K Cup and have my coffee right at my desk.

Cons: I don't work at newegg - haven't won the lottery yet. Oh cons on this unit - none that I can think of.

Overall Review: You can find K Cups at a discount across the web - don't want to knock newegg since they have been good to me but if you do a search you will be in coffee or caffeine heaven.

Most Critical Review

Nice case but bad documentation

Antec MicroFusion Remote 350 Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Antec MicroFusion Remote 350 Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Sleek looking and very well engineered. I had no issues with the LCD or broken parts but I do have an issue with other steps. See below.

Cons: Lining up the DVD drive is frustrating. The main power line from the power supply hinders the DVD drive from sitting flat. The on/off button turns on the computer but does not turn it off. You have to pull the power cable out of the back to turn it off. MAJOR ISSUE. Wiring the HTPC is also heavy with issues. Trying to wire it for adequate air flow is riff with issues. Makes you wonder if Antec employees are posting these reviews to boost the popularity of an inadequate case.

Overall Review: Always have purchased Antec but this case even though it looks sleek you had better do your homework for the right parts. I had a working HTPC but wanted to go smaller with the case. I had a nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 5000B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case and now I will have to go back to that case and figure out what to do with this Antec. I could see problems in the future with this case. 2 eggs deducted for making me work harder then expected.

The best build case for me EVER!

Pros: First off this case is the best build case for me period. The ease of wire maintenance, the 3 fans (1-120mm and 2-140mm) are excellent for cooling your rig, plus the invention of screw-less assembly (except for the mobo which you still have to screw in mount supports) makes for an easy build and a fast build. This will be my case for future builds due to this and also the ability to have a handle on top for easy movement of the complete system is serendipity.

Cons: The only con is that the 4 pin molex connectors for the 2 upper fans had the wires stripped. So when I connected them there was no power to the upper fans. Got to figure out how to remedy this as I need those upper fans working. Seems like there was no QA on this case since the wiring for those 2 upper fans now need 2 new molex connectors. Need to contact Cooler Master - I am sure we could work this out.

Overall Review: After I opened this case and saw the solid build and ease of assembly I just fell in love with it. Sure Antec has some great cases out there but CoolerMaster has won me over. Use to build with Antec Sonata cases. Now I will add this case to my assembly line.

BEAUTIFUL

LG LE5400 series 55" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD TV 55LE5400
LG LE5400 series 55" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD TV 55LE5400

Pros: It's becoming increasingly standard to expect streaming content from TVs of a certain size and price range. Anything over $2000, in our opinion, better be packing something. Fortunately, the LG 55LE5400 is equipped with a LAN port and the option to add a WiFi dongle through one of the two USB ports. LG is definitely trailing the pack in its content offerings.

Cons: I don't know if it is my satellite connection or what it could be but I get the white screen like another user had said. Still the TV is doing its job thus far.

Overall Review: NEWEGG rocks on delivery, products, customer service, etc. My Sony plasma light shorted out and I was like "what am I gonna do? NewEgg sent me my daily email (like serendipity) and these TVs were on sale. I ordered this on sale with local delivery and I had it in a matter of hours. NEWEGG cares about you!

Very good case but I forgot to measure

nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 5000B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: This is a very good case for the money. Everything seemed okay but there is room for improvement. I did not have any issues as others noted (scratches, DVD sticking, hard drive light not working) so I guess I got lucky.

Cons: The only issue is the alignment of the screw holes for the hard drives and mounting brackets. They are off by 1/64th of an inch but that is not really an issue if you know what you are doing. Once you have everything loaded cable management could be a thinker but again if you know what you are doing you will get past this.

Overall Review: Fans are quiet. Would look good in my home theater rack but I didn't measure - I am off by a 1/4 of an inch. So now I need to shop for a smaller width case. My fault. You also may want to get a low rise video card. My card almost hits the top of the case.

TRENDnet TEW-424UB Wireless G Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Plug it in and install latest drivers and you should be good to go. Have it on Win 7 and Win Vista 32bit. Connectivity is at full bars - no drops in speed or latency episodes.

Cons: It is a bit big but the supplied USB extension works out. It does what it is supposed to do but than again the majority of the population are a bunch of over anxiety klutzes so you could wind up with a defective unit because the guy who was designing yours had a few much to drink the night before or didn't get his willie wet or just doesn't give a rats hiney about his job. Or the end user could be the culprit. It is always 99 percent end user.

Overall Review: Why? This is a question. Have you ever asked yourself - Why?
