Most Favorable Review

Works perfectly :)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM

Pros: Plugged it in to my MB, went into the BIOS and enabled XMP and PRESTO......super delicious RAM running at 1600. :)

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: I can't believe how inexpensive RAM has become. When I first started building computers back in the late 80's RAM cost about $50 for ONE MEG!! Back then, this much memory would cost about $800,000. LOL!

Most Critical Review

My board lasted 1 month

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with Dual Thunderbolt
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with Dual Thunderbolt

Pros: This board actually has a lot of good things going for it. Unfortunately my board started crashing my system after 1 month of use.

Cons: Crashes my system.

Overall Review: When my board was delivered, it looked as though an animal had torn the box open. I felt a little uneasy about this thinking that I had been shipped a "refurbished" unit. Regardless, I installed it and everything worked great for about 1 month. Then Windows 7 began crashing with BSOD informing me of hardware failure. Through process of elimination by swapping out my other components, I traced it down to the motherboard itself. Of course this happens THE DAY AFTER my 30 day return policy with Newegg expired. Please understand that my 1 egg review has nothing to do with Newegg or Gigabyte as a company. I believe that Gigabyte is a great company that makes great products. I just happened to get a bad motherboard. It happens. The 1 egg is for the one specific board that I received. I'm going to try to RMA with Gigabyte. Hopefully I'm not stuck with a $240 paperweight.

LOVE these cans :)

JBL J88 Premium Over-Ear Headphones with No Mic - Orange
JBL J88 Premium Over-Ear Headphones with No Mic - Orange

Pros: Very comfortable to wear for extended listening sessions. I like the fact that the removable cable locks in to place. I'm not an audiophile (I would be if I could afford it) but like almost everyone, I LOVE my music! These cans, IMHO, have a very nice frequency range. The bass isn't gonna rattle your teeth, but you definitely know it's there. The bass is very crisp and punchy. It's not muddy at all. Throw in the beautiful sounding mids and highs and your ears will be quite happy!

Cons: Some people reviewing these have stated that the plastic head band has broken on them. I can see that happening if you're not careful putting them on or taking them off. They're a bit flimsy. There IS a metal band running through the plastic headband, so it's not like they're gonna break in half. Just be gentle with them and you should be fine. The cord is a little short for my taste. Another couple feet would have been nice.

Overall Review: You're definitely gonna notice a difference in performance depending on what you have these plugged into. For example, they sound nice plugged into my iPhone, but it just doesn't have enough juice to push these. I have a dedicated sound card in my PC with a 600 ohm headphone amplifier that really makes these sound amazing!

Pros: Does exactly what it says.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I bought this to hook my Xbox 360 to my HDTV via the PC VGA input. Works perfectly :)

WAY more than I needed!

Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single
Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single

Pros: Hits HARD, even at low volume. Floor rumbling lows. Nice hook-up options. LOUD. Attractive look. Plenty of power.

Cons: The Grill Cover Offers NO Protection (except from dust) *See other thoughts

Overall Review: I got lucky and caught this on sale for only $179. It's a STEAL at that price. I upgraded from a Polk Audio PSW10, which was plenty of power for what I needed......but I always go for overkill when it comes to my man cave. Haha! The only thing I DONT like about this sub, is the grill cover. The PSW10 had a very sturdy webbing of plastic under the fabric of the grill cover. If something were to hit it, it would take a LOT of force to break it. It offered a great level of protection. The PSW505 grill cover is simply the fabric stretched over a square plastic frame. There is nothing guarding the speaker except for the micro thin layer of fabric. Keep this in mind if you have kids or lots of friends over all the time. Reading some of the reviews on here, it seems there are a LOT of broken grills being delivered with this unit. I'm happy to say that my entire unit arrived in PERFECT condition. While I was waiting for this beast to be delivered, I went to YouTube and watched a lot of videos of other people pushing this sub to it's limits. WOW!! I couldn't wait until mine got delivered! When I finally got it all hooked up, I went back to YouTube and searched "Subwoofer Test". If you wanna see what this sub can do, I recommend you do the same. There are some INSANE subwoofer tests on there that will rattle you house!

Very Pleased!

Apple iPod Touch 32GB White (5th Gen)

Pros: I upgraded from my 3rd generation 32GB, to this 5th generation 32GB and I am blown away by how much the iPod touch has improved! The sound quality alone is much better than my old iPod, not to mention all the new features such as 2 cameras, Retina display, Siri, dual core A5 processor, iOS 6....etc, etc.

Cons: None

Overall Review: $300 is a good chunk of change to pay for a little toy that can fit in your pocket. But, I feel I got what I paid for. This thing is AWESOME!

Very impressed

Hard to believe something so small can be so fast! It's only about the size of a nickle. Awesome performance. Said it will be shipped from China and take up to 3 weeks to get here, but the day after I ordered I got an email from the seller explaining they had some in their warehouse in California. It arrived in days instead of weeks. Awesome job seller!! I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to hook their PC or laptop to a network wirelessly. I would definitely order from this seller again. A great buying experience.
