Excellent

BUFFALO DriveStation Axis 3TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive HD-LB3.0TU3 Black
BUFFALO DriveStation Axis 3TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive HD-LB3.0TU3 Black

Pros: Amazing capacity, the 3TB hard drive comes bare with 2.72 TB of actual capacity. Fast transfer speeds. I've been dumping my entire hard drive onto this since last night and I haven't encountered any sector errors or issues of any kind.

Cons: None to report at the moment.

Overall Review: This drive has a very sleek design, and matches my desktop setup perfectly.

Great Controller

Pros: -The controller feels great in your hands. If you have ever held a Playstation controller, it will feel very familiar but a little thicker. -The buttons and joysticks are responsive. -Plug and play -Very sturdy, has survived being dropped on hardwood floors several times. -Has worked for every game I have tried it on assuming they have controller support. -Even after well over a year of playing it has held up amazingly. No rattling or cracking and the joysticks still feel like new.

Cons: -The triggers are a little stiff on mine. This is great for racing games that require a light touch on the throttle but for shooters that require constantly pulling the trigger it can get a little annoying. -Cord is a tad short for my taste. It isn't mentioned in the details but it is about 6 feet long.

Overall Review: Overall a very good controller. If you spend a lot of time playing games on your PC and don't want to spring for a wireless model this one is right up your alley. I would definitely recommend this controller to friends.

Pleasantly Surprised

Logitech G35 USB Connector Circumaural Surround Sound Headset
Logitech G35 USB Connector Circumaural Surround Sound Headset

Pros: Fantastic sound quality, I've never heard such earth-shattering bass inside my own head before. The surround sound effect is really amazing. I tested the headphones with a few games I have on my computer (WoW, Deus Ex, Fallout 3, Borderlands, even Minecraft), as well as a couple BluRay movies and I couldn't stop grinning at the feeling of immersion these headphones give. Bass is deeper, footsteps come from the appropriate direction instead of just "stage left" or "stage right", water sounds right, thunder sounds right, voices sound right, environments are simply more vivid when wearing these headphones. The noise cancellation is amazing too, I was listening to music at about max volume and the person sitting next to me couldn't hear it until I took my headphones off. You have your own little private world when you're wearing these. The volume wheel on the earpiece is very helpful and responsive. The microphone works fine and picks up my voice without much outside noise.

Cons: One small annoyance, the Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound switch on the earpiece is a little stiff, whenever I try to switch it on/off with one hand it shifts my headset around on my head; I have to hold the earpiece with one hand and flick the switch with the other. Hopefully it'll loosen up with prolonged usage.

Overall Review: Having never owned a set of Surround Sound headphones, I wasn't quite sure what I was jumping into when I purchased these. I based my decision off 2 things mostly: price, and quality. This set was around $95 when I purchased it and I would honestly pay more for this level of quality. Long story short, I was pleasantly surprised.

Finally satisfied

CyberpowerPC Desktop PC Gamer Ultra 7214 Athlon II X2 245 (2.90GHz) 4GB DDR2 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Pros: Huge case, pleny of room for expansion. 4 RAM slots make it easy to plug in some extra memory. Runs WoW, Fallout 3, Farcry 2, Oblivion, The Sims 3, all fine with high settings. This computer works perfectly for what I wanted it to do--play games.

Cons: First one was a dud, the worst part about it all was trying (quite hopelessly) to troubleshoot the problems with CyberPowerPC's customer service reps. I paid for this on halloween day, and just last week got to play a game on it for the first time. Flimsy keyboard and mouse of course, but I had my own already so I just gave them to a friend.

Overall Review: I have this pc teamed up with a ASUS 24' monitor, 1920x1080 res and the video card handles it nicely. No "stretchy" or "pixilated" look on any of the games or applications. Only rating 4 stars because of the inconvenience of the first one. If i had to rate newegg's customer service, I would give them 5 stars for sure. They heard my tale of woe and quickly issued an RMA approval and handled everything.
