Great performance, runs cool and quiet8/25/2014 4:26:05 PM

Pros: Low power usage Great Performance No power needed

Cons: Takes up double PCI-E slots (covers one with the big fan)

Overall Review: Using it to drive 1440p resolution on an Asus monitor. Plays in excellent detail whatever game I throw at it. NVIDIA optimizes the games quality automatically which is a great feature. But where the card really shines is its low power usage. It delivers same performance as that of the Radeon 260X but at half the power. Doesn't need PCI-E power (draws power from the PCI-E slot). No power issues like the ones you have with ATI Radeon cards.

Great drive! Go for it!!6/8/2011 1:58:31 PM

Pros: Relative quiet (but not silent) Reasonable fast Tons of space!

Cons: The design is kinda bland and not flashy like the WD blacks but hey who cares!

Overall Review: I have bought and used literally every manufacturer's hard drive. My desktop runs 24x7 and I constantly keep upgrading my drives. This is the first time however I bought a Hitachi drive and am quite plased with it. I hope their customer service is good. For example, WD has clearly better customer service than Seagate for example.

Overall good but wireless connection keeps dropping7/2/2010 9:23:08 AM

Pros: + Easy to set up + Wireless Speeds are good (when it works, see below) + Good value for money + Wireless on off switch (EXCELLENT!!)

Cons: - Factory installed firmware is very old and its a big hassle to update it (see below) - The wireless connection is good but for some strange reason, after some random time (usually > 30 minutes), it will drop the connection for 5-10 seconds. This is very irritating. We've been using this for about a year now and we can confirm it keeps happening. Firmware upgrades dont help. PS3 gives connection error and Homegroup resets itself when the connection drops.

Overall Review: First of all the customer support guys are a joke. When I couldn't update the factor firmware (which is ancient) and called support they told me to get IE5 or an older browser. That's very difficult to do with Win7+IE8. The rep didn't have the technical expertise to help me further. After doing some research I found out that the firmware can be update using IE8 compatibility mode (its in the developer settings menu). Its very shameful that Trendnet hires people for support who cant troubleshoot such basic issues. Next big issue as I mentioned, is the wireless connection dropping after a random time. VERY IRRITATING!! If you can live with the second issue, this is a great router for the money.

The best DL burner in the market11/23/2009 10:59:38 AM

Pros: - Best Dual Layer DVD burner (for 8.74 gig DVDs) in the market. Also a great Single Layer burner (for 4.37 gig DVDs) - Excellent drive motor, feels very brisk and well built to mount and dismount CD/DVDs - Burning speed goes upto 22X-24X with media rated at 16X or above. However this is not the best option - see notes below - Supports disc scanning so you can check quality of burnt disc using Nero CD/DVD speed or other software. A BIG Pro for me. Allows me to verify the DVDs burnt will have a good shelf life.

Cons: Not exactly a con but make sure you have enough SATA ports or get a IDE-SATA converter (available here at newegg)

Overall Review: After owning the BenQs, LG and Samsung DVD writers, I conclude that Sony/LiteOns are the leaders when it comes to all round CD/DVD reading and burning performance. Sonys have never disappointed me and believe me you've got a 5 bagger with this drive. If you want a great all round drive, this drive won't disappoint you. Although the burn speeds go upto 24X, you are best off leaving the burn speed to 8X (best) or 16X (good) with 16X media (which is most abundant).

Fast and not too loud5/8/2007 1:32:33 PM

Pros: - This drive is FAST! very fast. The access time is ~8ms which makes your apps load fast. For the enthusiast who wants to extract every bit of performance. - Surpasses even 15K RPM SCSI discs like Cheetah for desktops.

Cons: - My first drive died in 2 days. Newegg sent me a new one. Yet to test it. - A bit noisy compared to my other 7200 rpm drives - Its an irony that 2 Raptors in RAID 0 is the only way to fully utilize the SATA 2 bandwidth of 300 MBPS but these Raptors are SATA 1 (SATA 150)!!. Does not affect real world performance with one drive, though. - Runs hot and 10K RPM running 24x7 also means this drive may fail more often than others

Overall Review: If using newer Intel based mobos, you must always configure the drives in ACHI mode which will enable NCQ (Native command queueing). This makes the drive scream. The peformance difference between ACHI and IDE mode is tremendous. Of course you must integrate the drivers with the installation CD or use a floppy (press F6 during install) for Windows to recognize the drive.

Fast and reliable4/23/2007 11:02:56 AM

Pros: This is the best RAM you can get for this price. There was an option to choose Micron based RAM like the other OCZ varieties and Corsair (some models), but beware that the micron based ram is soon vanishing as motherboard support is less. You wont be disappointed with this one! Go for it!

Cons: Has to be in matched pairs according to my mobo - not really a con but please note your upgrade options.

Overall Review: I installed this on my ASUS M2N SLI Deluxe mobo BIOS 0609 and it POSTED flawlessly. This with my AMD X2 4600 (I just got the AMD X2 6000 yay!) Note: To get the most out of this RAM you MUST change the DRAM voltage to 2.0v for this mobo and then reset the timings to 4-4-4-15. If the voltages are not selected correctly, the RAM will run at a lower speed - not what you want! If you mess up the voltages, the mobo gives a warning for you to correct it.

Great memory at a great price12/17/2006 9:45:07 AM

Pros: This is a great addition to your digital camera/PDA or cellphone needs. I got this for my Canon SD800 IS and it works great. The speed is awesome when shooting photos as well as transferring files off the memory card.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Newegg has the best price for this card. I was looking at a 150X + card and 2 GB - this one is both and is at a great price. Transend is a great brand name for memory. Check compatibility with your camera before buying.

Great build quality12/13/2006 11:07:39 AM

Pros: - High speed SATA II - Size is perfect for a standard ATX cabinet - Material quality looks solid - Has metal clamps to secure cables to hard drive This is one of the 'good' cables to have the metallic clamp. Great build quality, recommended

Cons: Might be slightly bulky if you use it for 5+ drives. Shouldn't be a concern for most users.

Overall Review: I need to concentrate on my work at workplace
