Most Critical Review

Terible UPS

Tripp Lite SMART1500LCD Smart Pro Digital 1500 VA 900 Watts 8 Outlets Line Interactive UPS w/ LCD display
Tripp Lite SMART1500LCD Smart Pro Digital 1500 VA 900 Watts 8 Outlets Line Interactive UPS w/ LCD display

Pros: Cheap. Rack mount. LED display.

Cons: After a few months one my UPS went bad. Scene it was under warranty i e-mail trippplite and asked to RMA it. They guided me through steps to test and the test failed. I was informed it was the batteries going bad. I requested a box prepaid as shipping would be just as must to buy a new one. They said they don't do prepaid i would have to pay myself. Terrible support there.

Overall Review: Horrible electrical engineering. Should the batteries die this UPS which UPS also serve as a surge protected and even do something that a 10 dollar surge protect form Wal-marts shelf can do cause it will refuse to funtion if the batteries are dead. Also the batteries are NOT end user maintenance they are only (according to manual) serviceable by trained technicians at tripplite as you have to crack open the entire unit just to replace them. Never seen ANY UPS have to do this. I will never purchase a tripplite item again.

Perfect size monitor

MSI Optix MAG341CQ 34" UWQHD 3440 x 1440 2K 100Hz DisplayPort HDMI DVI AMD FreeSync Anti-Flicker UltraWide Anti-Glare Backlit LED Curved Gaming Monitor
MSI Optix MAG341CQ 34" UWQHD 3440 x 1440 2K 100Hz DisplayPort HDMI DVI AMD FreeSync Anti-Flicker UltraWide Anti-Glare Backlit LED Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros: -Monitor is big, but not too big. The size is perfect to see everything. -Great price point for the size, resolution, refresh rate, and being a curved monitor. -Clean outline and backside as well. -Standard AC power cable, not AC-DC external connector, very clean. Went from a triple span monitor setup to this single monitor, what a difference. Applications and games run incredibly smoother now. Nice having no bezel and seeing everything on one monitor. Using it for schoolwork is very nice as well as being able to have two documents open and seeing it just like a normal printed paper feeling.

Cons: -Have to buy VESA bracket sold separately. Not knocking an egg off cause it may not be common to have an accessory monitor given how huge this one is.

Overall Review: Very satisfied with the monitor and ease of setup. Shipping was incredibly fast as well and I am very happy zero dead pixels.

Great case

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel High Airflow ATX Cube Case

Pros: -Breath room, the hot items on the side and are unobstructed. -Always love this case, I make it a standard for building.

Cons: -It is large, some buyers may not want such a large footprint on their desk or where they store their computer.

Overall Review: -The airflow is great cause how cable management is handled. HDD (or SDD) are out of the way of the fans allowing proper air flow. I use this case with 2 water radiators in push pull config with 11 fans total. Plenty of space in it.

Overall Review: -None

Missing parts

The item did not come with a normal profile bracket. When I reported the issue to the seller they simply stated they do not inspect items. That is fine however they informed me to contact the vendor and provided me with Asus point of contact. The item is an HP product, not Asus. In addition from a business perspective a$15 item it is not worth even one hour of business time just because a bracket is missing to get correct. However, as soon as I requested an RMA through Newegg they sure did pester my into using their shipping. I refused because I knew Newegg could not track or validate such a request and was glad I did not. I have to contact Newegg to get a refund because the company did nothing after receiving the item for 10 business days per Newegg refund policy. Also, the item was marked new, it certainly was not new it was unpackaged item. Would not be a big deal if they simply had the bracket which was in product images that were necessary to utilize the item safely in a desktop computer.

Great little server

For the price, this is a wonderful rack server. Very powerful and plenty of room for the technical enthusiast or even business-grade services. The vendor is great. The item was placed in a very padded box and arrived without any damage. The vendor also goes beyond what I was expecting placing in void plastic RAM cards and void HDD caddies so the inside drives would not get dusty for empty drives, a rare thing to see on refurbished systems. I highly recommend this product and the vendor.

Ok monitor bad seller

Got the monitors however the Newegg product description states 1 VGA, 1DVI and a power cord. First monitor I only got a DVI and power cord. Next Monitor just the power cord. I really needed two VGA cables. I told the seller and at first, they respond back stating they usually put one cord in. I had to reply stating i need the cords. The response back was 10 bucks and I get it myself. That’s not an answer for business support. I'm trying to provide a service to my own customers affected from hurricane damage and time is of the essence, and 10 bucks will not replace the cords even cheap ones. After a day deciding to report issue to Newegg or not, they respond stating they will ship a power cord and extra cord. Even though I stated I was short two VGA cords they only sent one.
