Cons: Out of the box Y,Enter,ScrLk,Up,Ins,3 and 5 no lights.
Cons: You need to install the app and then get a code which is never sent so the bulb is useless.
Pros: None, drive was dead out of the box. Tried in 2 new different drive housing and nada, zilch, nothing.
Cons: Waste of money and time, will never deal with HP products again.
Overall Review: Would have gave no eggs if could.
Pros: Looks and feels great at least for 10 days
Cons: Never used more than just typing, and 10 days after installing Dead, plugged old Logi into same port and works so not port or computer.
Overall Review: For price cannot recommend to get only 10 days worth of use out of it.
Pros: Good signal strength through out the house, a week in and no drops or need to reboot with 13 devices on both wireless and wired. WPS is fast and reliable in connecting devices. Firmware upgrade was easy right out of the box. TP Tether app on Android is a nice addition. Getting 130 mbs down on wireless within 30 to 40 ft of router. Useful buttons on side for WPS and WIFI off.
Cons: Big foot print and even bigger as I have it sitting on a cooler so have space for it. Both USB plugs on side (one one the rear would have been nice).
Overall Review: 8 months later wired connections dead so short term and wasted money, went back to Linksys.
Pros: With key code and logged into Microsoft office account download went smooth and installed all applications perfect, even still picked up all settings from an uninstalled version of Office 2013 so really no setup at all. Windows 10 Creator with all updates installed before hand. Auto renew gets you another free month.
Cons: Was warned to uninstall previous version of Office so did so before downloading but still picked up stuff left behind from Office 2013 (32 bit conflict but was installing 64 bit so did not care). Took a while for download to complete, maybe 10 min total and another 5 for install and 365 account setup.
Overall Review: Key code sent from Newegg within an hour so not bad delivery but if you expect immediate don't hold your breath
Pros: Smooth and great tracking, RGB lighting looks great, button reassign and lighting effects easy through hera software.
Cons: Wants firmware update for hera to load it into profile but went through without an issue. Large so may not be a good choice if you have small hands.
Pros: Shows up as Qualcomm Atheros AR938x Wireless Network Adapter in Win 10. Shut down and plug in on MSI board and not even a new hardware found on startup, like it was always there.
Cons: None, easiest hard ware install ever.
Pros: None, did not get what I ordered
Cons: Received 2 Apple watch Stands which would not mind if I have an Apple watch. Never had something like this happen before and won't be dealing with Market place Items any more.
Overall Review: Would have gave minus eggs if I could.
Pros: If you have the room cannot beat the looks, video card on the side is just the best thing since sliced bread, if you can manage to live with a 120mm AIO the Corsair H80 i GT mounted side ways fits like a charm without any issues. Tons of room for wiring and all the cables from Antec 650 Edge reached routing through back.
Cons: Big big big, you need the room to set this thing on a desk and once you finish it is heavy so if thinking about wall mount make sure you hit the studs.
Overall Review: For the price best looking case out there, panel is acrylic so easy to replace if you ever had to. Took most parts out of an older build and just added the AIO cooler, new video card and PS. All steel so built like a tank.
Cons: Once out of bios USB plugs all lost so could not load OS, south bridge NG out of box.
Pros: Screw into case and mounted cpu and ram then plugged in power, case, USB 3.0, DVD and hard drives and fired this puppy up. Came up up with no problems and loaded windows without a hitch.
Cons: Gotta move around boot devices in bios which is easy drag and drop if you have an external connected as bios will not find OS if left as sent from factory. Have 1866 ram but only shows 1600 but not gonna clock or game so no biggie.
Overall Review: FX 6300, 8 gigs 1866. Using stock cooler from an FX 8300 and cpu temps hover at 30c. 4 120mm fans in case and everything stays stable and cool.
Pros: Came in a bundle with mother board, no damage or dents.
Cons: Really thin metal that is all right if you take your time during build and don't plan on opening after, need to use long shaft screws included to mount front fan and you need to figure this out, if you have a module PSU bottom fan mount is useless as cables will be in way, top and side fan case perforations larger than 120mm . Really cheap filters and not cleaning friendly. Tool less drive mount are really cheap so better using screws.
Overall Review: Budget case for sure but will do the job.
Pros: Could not be easier, installed on MB and plugged in to a power plug, Booted up and Windows 8.1 Pro picked it right up and installed Microsoft Via 3.0 USB drivers while I watched. I did not need disk or have to download anything. Tons fast with 3.0 externals over plugging them into my 2.0 ports.
Cons: No free beer coasters in box.
Pros: Working, Catalyst picked up right away from upgrade and installed drivers without no need to do anything on Win 8.1, quiet and only needs 6 pin.
Cons: Thrown in static bag and thrown in box with some foam and CD, not secure in box at all, scratches on plastic and decals edges pulled up. Would not have been surprised if did not work the way it was packaged.
Pros: Was in retail box and only batteries were missing so figured was just old stock and they were removed before shipping. Paired fast and easy with Dell Venue Pro 8 which found it model and all so could not be better. Got with promo code so could not get a brand name any cheaper.
Cons: Does not type as I talk or get me beer.
Pros: Installs very nicely on Windows 8.1 Pro, upgrade to new version is free and easy. On a PC it just basically installs Bitdefender Total Security. If you don't want to screw with settings and be annoyed by your antivirus then this is the best out there for light weight protection. Monitors all incoming even update notifications to Windows.
Cons: If you want to be able to set scan schedules and have a lot of control of how your antivirus works then this is not for you because for the most part it is an install and forget it program with either auto pilot on or off and auto pilot wants to be on.
Overall Review: Under 15 bucks on sale here so once again kuddos to Newegg.
Pros: Extends range throughout house and outside, works great with Cisco E3000 on both bands.
Cons: Not a easy sucker to setup, have to go into Linksys admin panel and do bands one by one with WPS so takes a while disabling and enabling each band and then have to have a wireless device like a laptop on the network to finish all the setups.
Overall Review: Has a different name than the router so access to the extender requires logging on to it if out of range of the router. Easier to have each 2.4 and 5 ghz bands with different names before doing setup.
Pros: Huge screen with great colors and clarity. Text, pics and video all look great. No dead pix, software not bloated on start up. Great look besides all even when not on. Glossy screen is a stand out for looks if you want it instead of matte.
Cons: Not for me but gotta like a glossy screen, could see it being a problem if in sunlight or other lighting directed on it.
Overall Review: Got for $243 on sale and discount so besides everything else a great buy on top of it, also ordered on Thurs and got on Fri so kuddos to Newegg.
Pros: None was ripped off, should have just knocked me on the head and taken money out of my wallet. Would have gave no eggs but could not.
Cons: Activation code already in use so money down the tubes. Stay away from buying this from winzip.
Overall Review: Wanted to upgrade from 15 and have been a long time winzip user but never again.
Pros: Really brings out all the features of Windows 8 if you don't have a touch screen. Greatest thing since baked bread.
Cons: Learning curve from a mouse but once you master it you will never go back. Needs to be on sale as it can be had cheap everywhere else and only reason did not buy it here.
Overall Review: This thing rocks once you get used to it and the pressure with all the motions needed to get the most out of it, took a few days to really get the feel of it and what it could do. It is the only thing that really gets all the benefits out of Windows 8 if you have a desktop and must use a mouse.
Pros: Ease of setup, was on the net in under 5 mins on loaded machine and under 3 on all the laptops. USB key best thing since baked bread. Excellent signal on all wireless in house. Lites go green on all gigabit connections. Hangs on wall. Good oldie that can be had cheap.
Cons: Not a ton of options with stock firmware.
Pros: 3 minutes and was in, booted right up and saw all 8GB. Had to RMA a different brand so Kingston is DA MAN.
Cons: None, worked like it should
Pros: None, Nada, Zip.
Cons: Put in new Toshiba and would not post, switched around and still no post, went back to memory that came with it and immediate post.
Windows 7 64 bit
Overall Review: Waste of time and money.
Pros: Works great on computer monitors and TVs, nice all in one package, leaves no streaks and screens look new. Price is great when on sale.
Cons: Extra pads sold out so have to keep the one that comes with it in good condition.
