Pros: WIFI and bluetooth in the same device.
Cons: None so fat
Overall Review: I bought this for my son's PC to improve his overall network speeds and add bluetooth functionality. So far, the device with the included high gain antenna works as expected and his speeds have improved. I don't have a wifi 6 router, but he pulls down 230 Mbps download speed on a 400 Mbps connection, going through two concrete block walls. I plan to upgrade my router to a wifi 6 router when I find one on sale. I recommend this product.
Pros: Ordered the high yield cartridge, because I do a lot of black and white printing. The product was exactly as described and has worked with no issues. I'm on track to print out what the yield of this cartridge is rated for, however, most of my printing is done in econo mode.
Cons: The price...
Overall Review: I definitely recommend this product, as I've read stories online regarding people that have bought generic cartridges, and those not working and having to get replacements. I wouldn't want to deal with having to get replacements, when I have critical printing that needs to be done.
Pros: I bought 2 of these for a total of 32GB. My AsRock X470 Taichi had no problem loading the XMP profile and they run smooth. Upgrading from 16 to 32GB has made a difference in how my system functions. The memory looks unique with a white PCB and heatsink and run as good as they look.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: At current prices, this is a must buy.
Pros: At the price point I paid (I bought these on sale), I can't complain. The sound is clear, however, if you're looking for earbuds that will deliver heavy bass, these are no those. However, if looking for a decent pair of earbuds with a reputable name reliability, give these a try.
Cons: The case size is rather bulky and sticks out when placed in my pocket and phone calls can only be heard in one ear. No App for IOS users.
Overall Review: Worth it at the right price point.
Pros: This delivers the power I need at for my AMD system. I'm running a Ryzen 2700X and a RX Vega 64 STRIX. This PSU is also very quiet and the fan only runs when needed, it helps keep my overall system quiet. At peak when gaming, my system power usage maxes at 467W, plus I like the functionality of Corsair Link.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Pros: At a value of $150.00, it is definitely softened the blow of forking out the money for the purchase of the graphics card.
Was easy to redeem and I already have Resident Evil 2 on my system. Looking forward to the other two when they are released.
Cons: Before redeeming this voucher, an AMD card must be installed in the system you use to redeem the reward.
Pros: This is the basically same card as the ROG STRIX VEGA 64. The biggest difference I see is this card has an HDMI 2.0b port. I bought this to replace a GTX 1070 FE that I'll be handing down to one of my children for their enjoyment and I also wanted an all AMD system. Also, at the time I bought this card, the sale price of $459.99 and the games bundle worth $150 (Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2) brought the price of the card down to $309.99 made it even more enticing and factored into my decision to buy this card. I use my PC for home use (bill paying, online shopping, web surfing, etc.) and 1080P gaming. At 1080P, it performs well and the graphics quality is better than what I'm used to from NVIDIA.
As for temps, at the time of this writing, I won't say the card stays cool, but it operates within specs. I haven't experienced any overheating (yet). I did however took a close look at the card and made sure that there was a thermal pad properly applied to the VRM's. I recommend to anyone that purchases this card take a close look at it to make sure the VRM thermal pad is properly applied before installing it..
Cons: This card is HUGE, I mean GINORMOUS. Please make sure you have the space in your case to accommodate this card. Fortunately I have the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Mid Tower case. I was able to remove one of the hard drive cages to accommodate the card.
Overall Review: As this is supposed to be a premium graphics card, you would think that AMD or ASUS would include a nice little case badge, much in the way you get one with the purchase of an NVIDIA premium card. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice.
Pros: I bought this for my son over the 2018 Holidays Season to replace a reference GTX 970 that I was going to move into a PC for his baby sister. At the time with the sale price, it came with Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5. So far the card is very stable and my son has had no crashes and plays many AAA titles at 1080P with no issues. Also the colors look much more vivid on this card versus the GTX 970 that it replaced.
Cons: None really, just5 understand that with AMD cards, it may require a bit of tinkering.
Overall Review: Keep in mind that if you are switching over from NVIDIA, that AMD cards require you to tinker with the settings in their Adrenaline software and in game as well, unlike GEFORCE Experience, which will automatically optimize your games for you. In the even, you are someone that likes to tinker, then this card may be a viable option for you.
Pros: Great upgrade from my FX8350, paired with an Asrock X470 Taichi and 16GB of GSkill Trident 3200 MHz Memory. Much faster than my previous system, glad I waited for the Ryzen 2000 series before upgrading.
Cons: The Ryzen 7 CPU's, the 2700X specifically uses a +10 degree temperature offset to maintain fan consistency. I've noticed with my setup that due this +10 degree temperature offset, that my system doesn't boost as high as it can.
Pros: I bought this on sale during cyber week on sale. I'm amazed at how low the prices have dropped, a year ago I this would have cost me close to $300 USD if not more. I installed this in a new Ryzen 7 build. Windows 10 Pro installed from a USB flash drive with no problems at all. This drive so far has been fast and reliable. It also helps that there is a 5 year warranty.
Overall Review: Make sure you download the Samsung Magician software and optimize the drive. I used the software to enable RAPID Mode.
Pros: I paired this kit with my Ryzen 7 2700X and my AsRock X470 Taichi. I was able to set the XMP profile and this kit is currently running at 3200 MHz. It works with no problems on my X470 Taichi.
Overall Review: If using an AMD system, try to find reviews with the board you're interested and check if these will work. I tried these, because reviews I had seen, users mentioned that the XMP profile loaded with AsRock X470 Boards.
Pros: Bought this to support a Ryzen 7 2700X. System setup within the BIOS was easy, however, there are a lot of options for overclockers, which I don't do. I left those settings at default. XMP setup was easy and the board recognized my G-Skill 3200 MHz memory and it runs at that speed with no problems. I've been running this for a week with no problems.
Cons: At this price point, there should be a reset and power button on the board. If not those options, there should be a BIOS flashback button.
Also, AMD is using a 10 degree temperature offset for the Ryzen 7 CPU's to maintain fan consistency. This sometimes prevents the board from boosting as high as it can at times.
Pros: For those looking for a sturdy gaming chair that can bear a lot of weight, this is a great option. I weigh 210 lbs and while sitting in this chair, it felt sturdy, unlike other chairs that almost feel like they're going to fall apart on you. The components and craftmanship are definitely high quality.
Cons: The only con I have for this chair is the seat could use some more padding. One option would be to use a pillow, otherwise, it's a solid chair.
Pros: The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow for the physical connections. Since I've gotten this up and running, so far, the product has worked as advertised. I have extended both my wired and wireless networks using this product. I recommend this product.
Cons: Setup didn't work until I power cycled my router.
Pros: I purchased this as a Christmas gift to myself, so I could upgrade my home system from 16GB to 32GB. They installed with no issues and work as designed and my system is rock stable. Definitely recommend.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: I purchased these for my spouse, because she is an early morning riser and watches the news on her iPad which can be noisy. I paired them to her iPhone and iPad and mornings are much quieter in our home. She is very happy and uses them daily and even uses them for phone calls. The sound quality is better than Beats, but not a good as Bose, but the modular design is great and I'd definitely buy them agaon.
Cons: Only a soft carrying bag included and not a hard case, but I won't deduct a star for that.
Pros: These are by far, the best bluetooth headphones I have used. The modular design is great and the sound quality is better than beats. They can work with bluetooth, or with a supplied cable. In addition, they are sturdier than beats. I definitely recommend these and would buy them again.
Cons: Doesn't come with a hard carrying case, just a soft bag, but that doesn't warrant deducting an egg.
Pros: I thought this was a gimmick and took a chance on it. Let me assure you, this is no gimmick, it's the real deal. This PSU is quiet and delivers stable power.
Pros: Easy to install and automatically recognized by my system. So far so good - Rock solid and stable.
Pros: This is a decent case for anyone looking to do a budget build. However, be mindful that if you want to use a VGA card longer than 10 inches, you will have to mod the case. I just changed my case because of this. I bought a GTX 970 and I had to mod the case to get it to fit, but it was still cramped. Keep this in mind if considering this case.
It is still a decent product at a fair price point.
Cons: Does not accommodate video cards longer that 10.25 inches.
Pros: This does a decent job of keeping my CPU cool, however, the fans are loud when doing CPU intensive tasks. I replaced the fans with Cougar PWNM fans I purchased here on new egg and used Corsair link to setup a custom profile, now my machine is cool and quiet.
Pros: I've always used AMD, because of the price point, but I purchased this for a build for my son. I'm impressed, this thing smokes my FX 8350 and I almost regret not building an Intel system for myself. However I'm waiting for the AMD Zen processor lineup before I build my next rig.
Cons: None - maybe the price, but at this price point, I really can't complain.
Pros: A great case if you can get it on sale. The panels are sturdy and there is plenty of room for cable management. The dust filters are easily removable for cleaning. Also, the internal rails are all metal, very little plastic inside this case.
Cons: Not tool less, it took me a lot longer to transplant my system from the previous case to this one. Whereas last week, I built a system for my son using a case from a different vendor, and it took less time because of the tool less design. I have to say and upside of this is that the internals are metal.
Also, the wiring from the header interfered with installation of the optical drive in the top bay.
Pros: Good product considering the storage capacity and the price point. I used the included software to clone from the 240GB SSD Drive. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the competitors, but so far has been reliable.
