Pros: Packaging, charge case, earbuds all look brand new!!
Lows, mids, high, all there. I hear features of my music i didn't know were there!
Cons: A little bulky but stay in with no problem and comfortable.
Overall Review: At this price you will NOT find a better sound quality.
Pros: Build quality
Cons: Analog function works fine.
Smart display does not work.
Overall Review: Tried charging several times. Even cleaned the charging points with alcohol as recommended by the included booklet. No go.
For analog only function you cannot beat the current price even if the smart function does not work.
Pros: Have two of these in RAID 0 config for 2+ months now. Not one hiccup. Second drive scaled nearly 100% on read speeds for me. Getting average of 900Mb/s now.
Pros: After the negative reviews I was a little sceptic. I ordered two of these and both came with all the necessary screws, mount holes were right on, and screw hole threading was fine. Bytec must have gotten their quality control in line!
I put together a small lan gaming box out of spare parts and needed to mount 4 small 128GB SSD drives in a two bay 3.5" config. This done the trick and looks nice.
Pros: Surprisingly good sound.
Good build quality.
Cons: None at the moment.
Overall Review: If you're looking solid entry level sound quality on a cheeseburger budget this is it!
Pros: Looks like new to me.
Sound quality is very good.
Bass control located on remote knob. (No more feeling behind sub to adjust.)
Overall Review: Excellent choice for the price. Used my newegg charge account so got 15 dollars off the already low refurb rice.
Pros: As always thanks for fast shipment Newegg.
Cons: I should have stuck with my instinct and stayed away. Ordered two of these to setup a RAID as I kept reading how fast they are. I was like a kid in a candy store when I came home from work and saw my package had arrived. I immediately unpacked and installed in my system. Long story short, not one both both hard drives are dead. One makes a clicking noise and the other hangs my system if I try to boot with it. After trying several different sata cables just to rule that possibility out, I took them back out and reinstalled my trusty Western Digital. (Never skips a beat.)
Overall Review: This is my second time owning a Samsung drive..... my FIRST and my LAST. (Sarcasm)
Pros: Nice design. Sufficient connectors.
Cons: Same as the last Apevia PSU I owned..... died after 2 - 3 months use.
Overall Review: If you're on a tight budget.... hold off an extra week to get the other 20 bucks you need to get that Antec or Enermax. (The Enermax in my sons PC has been going strong for around 5 years now..... thats quality!) I am officially wiping my hands clean of this brand. When/If I get the RMA replacement it will go in my next yardsale.
Pros: Nice design. Goes well with my (Black) Antec case.
Cons: Seems to get flakey under load. I play WOW quite a bit and now my game is starting to crash. I installed this PSU and a BFG 9600 GT at the same time .... I knew the 380W PSU I had before would not power the 9600 but I'm wondering if this PSU is truly 500W or could I possibly have a bad graphics card. I'm at a point where I don't know which one is causing the problem. Anyone else having this dilemma?
Overall Review: This is my 2nd strike with an Apevia PSU..... The 1st one died within 6 months. If this one turns up to be the problem... I won't attempt a 3rd strike.
Pros: Great board for the price. Makes a great low end gaming machine for price concious users. Has High Definition Onboard Audio that sounds great even on low-end speakers. Has been 100% stable for 2 weeks now.
Cons: The onboard audio was a little tricky to get working. Had to uninstall then reinstall the drivers.
Overall Review: Came with Installation Disc unlike other users reporting not getting one. Does not have native SATA supoort so make sure to create a SATA install floppy. (Drivers can be found in the SouthBridge Directory on the CD) You'll need it to get WinXP to recognize to Hard Drive when installing.
Pros: Burns DVD's great. Also very quiet.
Cons: Have burned 6 Audio CD's so far and all of them skip bad. (Maxell Media)
Overall Review: Going to write BenQ CS to see if the may be a firmware update coing out. If not, I'll RMA.
Pros: Have used this RAM in 2 system builds so far. First with an MSI KT6V Socket A and secondly with a BIOSTAR T-Force Socket 754. Both units have been completely stable. I'm not an overclocker so I can't atest to it's abilities there. If you're on a budget.... look no further.
Cons: Yeah, why didn't I go to college so I could make more money and buy more of this RAM.
Comments: Great RAM at a Great price!!! Thanks Wintec and NewEgg!
Comments: WOW!!!!! ... oh do I wish my board supports Dual Channel!!!!
Comments: 3 words..... "As good as it gets!" No, wait.... thats 5. Buy it!!!!!!!!
Comments: Absolute junk! Fried in under 2 weeks with minimal load. (1 HD, Burner, GeForce 4, XP2400+)
Comments: I had a similar problem... actually none of my USB were working. I discovered it was my power supply. Once I replaced it with a larger power supply, the problem went away. Maybe this will fix your problem as well.
Comments: Something you may want to consider is the possibility of your video card being the problem. My friend had the exact kind of card and he was having ALL sorts of problems, "games freezing, system rebooting, etc." He replaced his card and now everything works flawless.
Comments: I have only one word to say.... "AWESOME!"
Comments: I am a die hard Deskstar fan and each time IBM puts out a new series drive it gets faster and faster. The 180GXP has a burst read speed of 60mbps on my system. My games load faster than any of my friends when we have a LAN party. Also completely silent! The other guy that mentioned humming noises may have a problem with his case. I'd try mounting it in a different drive bay and see what happens. I've owed approx 15 different versions of the Deskstar and have only had to have warranty service on 1 of them. As usual, NEWEGG is the absolute best!!!!!
Comments: Had the board for roughly 3 weeks now and it absolutely rocks! Running a 2100+ with 512 Kingston PC2700 and Golden Sample GF3 TI200 and scoring @8600 on 3dMark 2002. Now for the problem... for 3 days now I can't ANYTHING to work that is USB; Printer, Joystick, Digital Camera, Flash Card Reader, etc. Everything shows good in the Device Manager. Have even uninstalled and reinstalled the USB devices in Windows XP. I've almost come to the conclusion that the USB ports are not getting the required power from the motherboard. (I just thought of something... maybe I'll try plugging my Optical Mouse up and see if the eye works. That will resolve the power theory.) Anyways, if I can't figure this out I guess I'll have to RMA it.
