excellent

PNY Quadro 4000 VCQ4000-PB 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card
PNY Quadro 4000 VCQ4000-PB 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card

Pros: over all performance is excellent, I work doing 3D graphics and this card is great, tested in 3D Max AutoCAD and MODO, also After Effects and Photoshop. in 3D Max I can work with 4 Million polys with not delays, or freeze, performance drivers help to improve performance.

Cons: although the price still high compared with similar ATI cards, this one is cheaper than the previews version FX3800 ( I also own) and the performance is better and way more memory. But still I think the price can go down more.

Overall Review: it came with 2 adapter for the monitor but they are not compatible between them??? if you have a regular VGA monitor you can use one, DVI to VGA but if you have 2 VGA monitors they can't be connected with the adapter supplied.

Good entry level Card

PNY Quadro 2000 VCQ2000-PB 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card
PNY Quadro 2000 VCQ2000-PB 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card

Pros: I work in 3d Graphics, 3D max and Auto CAD are my main software, I got this card to replace a GTX465, the overall performance is OK but not as suspected. Good amount of memory and better performance than the previews FX1800 (also own one of those)

Cons: the performance was not as suspected,performance was like 10% more than a GTX 465, and since there is not performance drives yet for 3d MAX it is not really worth the investment. I returned and replace with a Quadro 4000.

Overall Review: If you are looking for a entry level card with low budget, I'll recommend the ATI V5800 same qualities memory and performance drivers for Max and CAD. New Egg service was excellent with my return item 5 egg for them 3 for Nvidia quadro2000

good processor, you need to update your CPU fan

Intel Core i7-2600K - Core i7 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I72600K
Intel Core i7-2600K - Core i7 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I72600K

Pros: Speed, low Heat, efficiency, all what they say it does, it deliver. I work with 3D Graphics, and CPU power is all what I need, I keep it OC at 4Ghz and the temps are stable.

Cons: Dam you Intel!!! you do great products, but you really know how to do business, every new CPU update, need new Motherboard and new Ram, and now even new CPUFans!!! I own a Coolmaster Hyper cooling, and it work great in my intel Core extreme, but in this new sandy, the CPU set up is just a few millimeters big enough to make you buy a new CPU fan.

Overall Review: great product, New egg deliver 2 days early, thank you for that!! if you plan in OC check if you Fan is compatible with this new CPU other than that is a win win.

Good product Good price

WD My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBAAK0010HCH-NESN
WD My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBAAK0010HCH-NESN

Pros: After look online for a while I got this HD because capacity and price, The device work right out of the box, I connected to a USB3 and it seems to use all the bandwidth of it, Transfers are fast and efficient, I used to have and old WD HD and after transferring some Gb it hangs and freeze the PC, I have not have this issue with this HD

Cons: none

Overall Review: I use this HD to back up only, not video streaming or photo browsing, for try I did watch an HD movie from it and it work fine, but again I bough this hard drive to back up important stuff, 3 month of use, I'm knocking in wood this thing works fine.

Good Laptop

Lenovo Laptop AMD Athlon II Dual-Core M320 (2.1GHz) 3GB Memory 160GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4200 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit G555(087325U)
Lenovo Laptop AMD Athlon II Dual-Core M320 (2.1GHz) 3GB Memory 160GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4200 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit G555(087325U)

Pros: I got his laptop for my wife, she uses for University studies and regular internet stuff, the laptop work a good speed, the combination between AMD CPU and ATI video card work better (IMHO) than the Intel dual laptops, (same price). monitors has good size and hard drive is big enough and 3Gb can't beat that.

Cons: for some reason the touch pad always stay right where my wife and I rest the palm when we type, so the cursor or page move around, you can turn it off, but never had that problem before with other laptops. Also the contrast of the screen is extremely high, not sure if it is the right gamma or what but all white shown very burn, needs a lot of tweaking to get a good contras.

Overall Review: Overall it is a very good Laptop, I'm graphic artist so I'm a little picky with the screen colors and such, my wife don't mind, but if you are in the graphic business be aware that the contras is hard to control. other than that great purchase, News Egg always on time or even early in the shipping.

Good Phone

Samsung Stratus Black unlocked GSM slider phone with Video Camera (C3050)
Samsung Stratus Black unlocked GSM slider phone with Video Camera (C3050)

Pros: The phone work right out the box, just changed the chip and that it, no problems. The interface is very basic, and simple, seems old, but has all what you need for a basic phone

Cons: at first view seams cheap construction, everything is plastic, it feel light, my old phone(motorola) was metal, the interface look like old phone, like 16 colors only. but not big deal for me really. the ring tones are all techno rap style, I don't like that music, I guess when I get the extra memory I'll put other ring tone, but at least they should put more regular ring options.

Overall Review: I'm not a fancy phone person I just use a phone to make phone calls, this one works great, my old motorola the interface was so complex and slow, to search for a number took forever, in this samsung phone you can scroll down your list very fast.
