Great Medium Size 3-channel Heli for Beginners1/5/2011 2:37:31 PM

Pros: * Well-Built and durable with a metal frame and flexible blades and fins. * Built-in Gyro for easy hovering and flight * 40mhz radio controlled which allows for OUTDOOR flight as well as indoor. * Controller has a built-in trim nob for easy in-flight adjustment * Plenty power from dual motors for the main co-axial rotor and tail rotor * Wall charger provided and only 4xAA needed for the radio transmitter compared to others which require 6xAA. * Charges in about 25-30 minutes full and has a flight duration of 10-12 minutes on average which is great * Flight range is approximately 200-feet. * Attractive Canopy with strobing LED spot-light on the nose of the heli. * Comes with a screwdriver and 1 replacement tail blade

Cons: * Inability to charge heli from the radio transmitter, but this is kinda of a pro because some helis ONLY allow you to charge from the transmitter which costs you more $$$ when it comes to draining the batteries instead of using an outlet or a USB charger. * Wish it came with more spare parts

Overall Review: I got this heli from a local mall for $25 dollars more than whats offered here at newegg but it was well worth it. You can tell right away from the packaging that this Heli was sturdy and packed some power. Just wished it came with more spare parts but this brand has become so common that you can google up the parts and find a good deal for replacements. I recommend this heli to anyone especially for the holidays.

Single Player is horrible...Multiplayer isn't so bad though11/4/2010 8:37:41 PM

Pros: Graphics are superior to Call of Duty although it utilizes a modified CoD engine for singleplayer and Frostbite (Battlefield Bad Company) for Multiplayer...Multiplayer is satisfying but doesn't really add enough depth in customization but if you wanted that get CoD

Cons: I was looking forward to a decent storyline (and by no means was I looking for a Christopher Nolan'esque story) but it was incredible cliche and lame honestly. C'mon, the devs could have spent a miniscule amount of time extra on the singleplayer and it would have delivered...but it was terrible

Overall Review: Atleast I got the limited edition which gives me early access to Battlefield 3 which can't fail.

Best Mouse I've ever owned...and I've owned quite a few in my time...4/5/2009 1:37:44 PM

Pros: If you liked the mx518's shape and ergonomic feel then you'll love this mouse. I use to game with the 518 but after a year or so of use the cord started having connectivity issues with my pc...and from doing a bit of research about this issue it happens pretty often...So I decided to get a replacement in the G5 and it hasn't failed me since...Sturdy Construction 7 buttons for all your needs...comes with weights for extra customizability..been gaming quite heavily online in FPSes and have never experienced any hiccups in a match EVER with this mouse...trust me you'll def. get the best bang for your buck in this baby...5 eggs easy

Cons: wish it coulda came in more colors ;) and also that the two-side buttons on the left side of the mouse weren't so small...some razer mice have got that issue solved with the overgrown side buttons that they feature

Overall Review: Also wish that the G7 wasn't such a failure...it has the same shape and feel but comes wireless and is very responsive also...however there is a major hardware flaw that renders your mouse useless randomly for seconds at a time and in FPS games those seconds mean life/death...too bad Logitech scrapped it and discontinued it...o

Awesome Case!11/24/2008 11:13:48 PM

Pros: Purchased for my first build almost a year ago and its still standing as tall as ever! I was blown away by its size. Huge case with tons of room to work with and expansion slots. Built with a majority of steel parts so its pretty heavy especially when I packed it with a number of parts. Fit both 8800 GTS with a lot room to spare and my massive cpu cooler didn't have any issues with room. Came with four case fans one of which i converted into a exhaust tunnel for the rear-top drive bay which I didn't use. Comes cool looking blue leds for the intake and exhaust which puts on a good light show for viewers. Drive installation is easy due to the tool-less design which allows you to unsnap/unlatch the drive bay covers and easily slide in a new optical/or HDD. All the front bay covers come with dust-filters. Side-window is easily removable and comes with a lock and key. Also comes with a nifty tool/supply drawer too. Beastly. Premium quality case which I highly recommend.

Cons: The two swing-out magnetic armor plates look pretty nifty but started to annoy my optical drives since I had to swing them open just to make sure the trays could push out. Easily removable so thats what I did. Other than that no REAL cons for me. Its heavy but its a full-tower made of steel. Not meant to be lugged around, its more like a behemoth ready to take on anything.

Overall Review: Its beastly still even after almost a year ;).

Still works..11/24/2008 10:47:02 PM

Pros: Had this thing since December of Last year and it still works...I purchased 2 of these w/o the extra adaptor and it was a no brainer. Works fine with my Nokia Cell Phone..didn't have to format it at all just plugged it right in and it worked.

Cons: My flash-card reader doesn't seem to be able to recognize this card. However it reads my 2 gig MicroSD of the same brand fine. Not a big deal tho but inconvenient in my case.

Be Careful with the Socket AM2 Mounting plate....1/21/2008 4:54:46 AM

Pros: Very quiet Fan and cool looking design and LED light. Mounting system great for Intel Motherboards but you have to remove the motherboard to install the back plate. Keeps CPU cool well under load. Arrived quick and easy thanks to Newegg.

Cons: Had some trouble installing it on my ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe WIFI Motherboard as the AMD/AM2 mount for the CPU retention bracket kept coming off and was loose. I still don't know if I installed it correctly due to the brief instruction manual. Had to mount it upside down in my M2N32 SLI board because the butterfly fins would touch the mobo heatsinks surrounding the CPU socket. Good thing it doesn't really interfere with my airflow in my large case.

Overall Review: I would have just went with the Zalman 9700 if I knew that the retention bracket mount was so flimsy and almost useless. A little tweaking helped. My RIG: Acer Black AL2216WBD 22" 5ms Response Time Widescreen LCD, Thermaltake Armor Series Super Tower case, M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi Mobo, AMD Athlon X2 6400+ Black Edition CPU, Asus Black SATA 16X DVD-ROM Optical Drive, Asus Black SATA 20X DVD+/-R Burner w/Lightscribe, G-SKILL 2GB SDRAM DDR2 800 Dual Channel Kit, Western Digital Raptor X 150GB 10,000 RPM SATA Hard Drive, ZEROTherm BTF90 CPU Cooler, all running on a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad 750Watt Power Supply.
