Pros: Works as expected, very versatile, pretty quiet as far as these go.
Cons: It makes noise, so I put that down as a CON, but all in all its much quieter than most external reader/writers.
Overall Review: The Pioneer USB 3.0 Slim Portable BD/DVD/CD Burner is a must have these days with all the newer PC's not coming with BD CD or DVD drives. Its fast, works great, I use all the features, Ripping & burning DVD, CD and Blue Rays.
Pros: Fast, Quiet, Powerful, so far all been plug an play
Cons: NO Blu-ray - but bought a Pioneer USB 3.0 Slim Portable BD/DVD/CD Burner Model BDR-XD07UHD and problem solved.
Overall Review: Great machine, works very well. I tend to buy the Gaming PC's even if we use them for working from home. This is fast, works for everything we need.
Pros: Awesome Print surface, not one coaster. Use them for professional Video and Image services. My customers think I have them printed and made somewhere. Good Quality Product
Cons: Like everything, i wish i could get em cheaper, and still get the same product. But i am not disappointed in the quality.
Overall Review: Wish new egg had em in 100 packs.
Pros: Bright, Vivid Color, Crystal Clear, Comse with all necessary cables. No visual ghosting or lag. Great Value for the Money, With a decent video card it displays like a much more expensive monitor.
Cons: No height adjustment (Has tilt)
Menu buttons not user friendly (but function well)
Overall Review: Worried about dead pixels and neweggs return policy, Arrived in Perfect condition and has been been on for a week or so straight with no issies so not as worried anymore.
Overall excellent Monitor for the price
Pros: If you are looking for a feature packed machine, and not somting basic that you in tend to upgrade with lots of adds, this machine is PERFECT. Its an out of the box, fast feature packed machine that will do everything the basic to experienced user could want to do.
The HDMI port makes this the perfect Set Side box to use with your big screen TV, Light Video work, As a Media Center or just the every day box for the family. It is powerfull enough for even advanced users to not be disapointed.
Pros: Power for the Price, QuadCore, gigabit LAN, Firewire, SD, Compact Size, Many USB ports, Windows 7 Runs flawlessly and fast on this hardware setup, Very Simple to set up, Minimal bloatware to uninstall
Cons: Front access door not very sturdy (can see it breaking at some point).
Eject button is a PAIN, you have to play with it, and push at just the right angle and hard to get it to open. (Hint: if you use your THUMB to press it and are firm, it works best)
Some Bloatware, less that a lot fo them, Most of the additional software is Trial and you will probably be better off removing it rather than activating it. (like the antivirus, and office software) get a decent open source one you trust or buy.
Overall Review: It has no Software CD's, (recommend using the Create Restore Disk Feature the second you have it booted up, Do OS and Applications Backups. It will require 4 DVD's and works great)
Not a lot of room to upgrade, Dont buy this if you want it to be a box you intend to add a lot of upgrades to. (it is good for what it is out of the box and you will be happy with it)
Bought the Newegg item number N82E16824009145 Acer Monitor 22" widescreen monitor (its on sale now too) and it was the PERFECT monitor for this machine.
Pros: Its a great product that has never let me down.
Cons: I have never had an issue to date with any Crucial Memory.
Overall Review: When in doubt add more memory...
Pros: Lots of space, nice retractable USB end, NO LOST CAPS. Lightweight plastic (feels flimsy, but very tough stepped on it by accident a few times now and held up) Decent transfer rates, about average.
Cons: Made in China. but soooo hard to find any USB stuff made in USA. (sorry im on a kick to get america back)
Overall Review: Comes with U3 Smart software installed kind of a pain and they offer trial pay software. i formatted it and used portableapps.com freeware.
Pros: Small, Fast and 4gb, what more do you need to know. OK here it goes, i went on vacation with 1 gig of music on my phone took 9 vidieos in largest format and 190 pictures used less than 2 gb. Gotta love this card. its fast and works well with a Cell Phone
Cons: Small, dont lose it. LOL
Overall Review: Love the Product. 4GB is pleanty for me at this point.
