Very Nice Laptop

HP Laptop Pavilion dv6-1030us Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel GMA 4500MHD 16.0" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
HP Laptop Pavilion dv6-1030us Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel GMA 4500MHD 16.0" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Needed to replace my 4 year old HP laptop. Has everything I wanted. I was looking at the 17 inch HPs but glad I went with the 16. HDMI output is a great addition, card reader etc. Solidly built as well and not too heavy. Will be nice to take along on trips. Price was right, better than any I have seen. Ordered Sunday afternoon, had it Wednesday. So far I am happy. Newegg is great!!!

Cons: My first experience w/Vista. Had some programs that were not 64 bit compatible, no biggie, but too many stupid things going on with Vista. Microsoft must think most PC/Laptop users are morons. Plus bloated with HP software. Way too much junk. Come on HP give us a choice and let the user decide what they want on their laptops. Also, for some reason the program on there to make a copy of recovery disks doesn't work, keeps telling me that the 1st DVD didn't write??? Did I mention it has too much junk software on it.

Overall Review: Although I did have a few complaints in the con section I still rate this a 5 star. If I wanted a laptop that had evrything I wanted w/no complaints, I would have ordered a "custom-made" laptop and paid a lot more for it.

Excelloent Mouse

Pros: Great mouse - no dongle will free up a USB port. Perfect size and is more comfortable to use. Great little mouse - glad I bought it.

Cons: A little pricey, but you only get what you pay for and Logitech in my opinion is the best!

Overall Review: Some people complaining about a 1/2 second lag??? I hardly notice any lag. Could it be your laptop? This mouse replaced an older Logitech wireless mouse I use for my work laptop. It was over 3 years old and used daily. Left click button was getting bad. I have an older Logitech bluetooth for my personal laptop and this one is a lot better. It's smaller and fits my hand much better and is more responsive.

What a GREAT Idea

Canon CLI-8 Ink Cartridge - Combo Pack - Cyan/Magenta/Yellow
Canon CLI-8 Ink Cartridge - Combo Pack - Cyan/Magenta/Yellow

Pros: Newegg is great. I have not seen any store offer a 3 pack of the colors without the black. The ip4300 has a separate black cartridge that never seems to run out, so why should I buy the 4 pack. Thank You Newegg this is a great idea. Stuff like this keeps me coming back!

Cons: None

Overall Review: None

Pretty Nice

Ion Audio - USB Turntable w/ Dust Cover (TTUSB05)
Ion Audio - USB Turntable w/ Dust Cover (TTUSB05)

Pros: I was somewhat reluctant to buy this, but for 89.99 w/free shipping I couldn't resist. Newegg is great! It's a nice turntable for the money. And the software it comes with is great! Gets all the clicks out and there are a ton of editing controls. The software is better than some of the others out there that cost $90 and that is without a turntable. The USB connection directly to your PC is another plus. (It also has RCA connectors as well)

Cons: The help file for the software editing tools is helpful but doesn't go into enough detail to explain how to use them. Haven't checked the ION website, but a manual on how to use the editing controls sure would be helpful, especially if they had examples of when to use them. It does effectively remove clicks and pops better than the leading software out there. Plus I am not sure how you would order a new cartridge or needle. I have and couple of very good cartridges and spare needles that can't be used on this unit and that was disappointing.

Overall Review: I read all of the reviews and some were not happy because it was plastic and looked cheap. We're talking $90 here. Geez! It took me an entire evening to get this unit working with the software it comes with and to feel comfortable using some of the different editing tools it comes with - a ton. You have to be a sound engineer to use all the editing controls, but I eventually got it working and only use a couple of the editing tools now - don't understand most of the others. Keep in mind, if your albums are in good condition this unit is worth the price to save them to MP3 (lame) CDs but it won't perform miracles with worn or real scratchy albums. It's actually fun to use and all in all I am quite pleased. So now all I need is the "time" to get all these albums recorded on CDs.

Very Nice

Pros: Excellent keyboard and mouse - No problems using it with a new install

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: This was for our Family room PC, will probably order another set for my PC to replace a cheaper Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse. You only get what you pay for and this set was worth the price.

Nice little MB - RAID drivers on disk don't work

BIOSTAR GEFORCE 6100-M9 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
BIOSTAR GEFORCE 6100-M9 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Good combo price with with the AMD 4200 X2. Works great in my nMEDIAPC HTPC 200BA micro ATX case. So far no issues

Cons: NO firewire port what's with that? Also spent quite a bit of time troubleshooting why my sata hard drive wouldn't work. Drivers off disk did not work. Thanks to HT (who had the same problem) in NewEgg reviews, went to Biostar website and downloaded drivers after that it worked okay

Overall Review: Only gave this a 4 because of the lack of firewire port (will probably order the Syba 1394a pci card. New egg is GREAT! - but i spend too much money there.
