Most Favorable Review

Attention: Microsoft update

Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass USB 2.0 WebCam
Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass USB 2.0 WebCam

Pros: best camera for the price. even better (more stable) with special MS update. works with linux....no issues

Cons: non, zip, zero.....well i wish they machines the lens with knurling to grip more easily. a small thing really.

Overall Review: if you go to the microsoft update site and select custom option you'll see an update specifically for that camera on the hardware tap. i use xp_sp3. and you should keep it plugged in before going to the Microsoft update site so it can be detected during scan.

Most Critical Review

not too bad

7000mAh 77Wh 10.95V FLOUREON A1382 Laptop Battery for Apple MacBook Pro 15" A1382 MC723LL/A MC721LL/A MD103LL/A  MD104LL/A (A1286 Macbook Pro 2011 2012 year )
7000mAh 77Wh 10.95V FLOUREON A1382 Laptop Battery for Apple MacBook Pro 15" A1382 MC723LL/A MC721LL/A MD103LL/A MD104LL/A (A1286 Macbook Pro 2011 2012 year )

Pros: well packed for shipment and comes with tools which is especially nice.

Cons: wire in plenum channels no neatly wired. some wiring visible and needed to be tucked in. unlike same brand i bought for my MacAir, this one is deteriorating quickly. could be old stock. i'd say i perhaps have 75% of life just after lightly being used since winter.

Overall Review: i nearly always buy Li-batteries in the winter so they won't fry in the truck or mailbox. this is the first time i've had a Floureon battery deteriorate so quickly. i still will buy this brand but wish to encourage manufacturer to rotate stock. not happy as i'll probably need to buy another this winter.

quality keyboard w/needed help

redragon k576r daksa mechanical gaming keyboard wired usb led rainbow backlit compact mechanical gamers keyboard 87 keys for pc computer laptop cherry blue switches equivalent black

Pros: well made. i bought this for an elderly man with eye issues. heavy it doesn't slide off table easily. nice clicky sound.

Cons: instructions are not for anyone. composed of gaming jargon. unfortunately the manufacturer does not seen to realize that not everyone who buys this is a gamer. with 85 year old man's bad eyes would like to have all solid blue, he likes best. their website is no help no information on how to decipher there badly written manual that requires a microscope to read.

Overall Review: like many products it was not quite brought home. just a well written manual or informative website could in crease sales especially when this would be perfect for old people. please, how do you make all keys solid blue? instead they loose touch with their design talents and cater to gamers only. there is no comparable keyboard for old people i don't know why since there are more and more aged people computer skills.

perfect fit

CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Memory for Apple Model CMSA8GX3M2A1333C9
CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Memory for Apple Model CMSA8GX3M2A1333C9

Pros: actually runs slightly cooler. i recommend Corsair.

Cons: 11-26-16::Update, months later: it died a slow death with increasing errors. after some forum readings, i Kernal Panic: found that this has been an ongoing problem for years with these memories. i get same error codes and behavior just like everyone else with macBP. both will work individually in either slot, so in that way good. then i thought it could be the slot itself. so i got out of my junk drawer some budget memory(nanya) saved out of an old pc-laptop 2x2gb, they work perfectly though only 4gb. Wow so it is not the slots! i tried again the Corsair and same result. i know it is not my puter now, so i got an RMA and sent it back to Corsair.

Overall Review: unlike some opinions in review that it does not matter this memory does not need to be Apple qualified, this is and has not hanged like the other one did. be sure to buy qualified memory and in this case prefix is CMSAxxxx... i have always recommended Corsair and will probably continue to do so. i am though a little miffed when i read this issue with CORSAIR has been around since 2006 in various forms. it is even mention on the Apple community forums. it is the same issue manifesting itself in differing forms: three beeps; 6002x error code; working individually. all same Kernal Panic profile. though it did run cooler my gut tells me it is still too hot in the area according to the temp app available from the Apple Store. the heat pipes are right below the memory slots so it could be an issue. so far so good withnanya sticks. i have always liked Corsair, but this is an ongoing problem it seems uniquely with Corsair i wish they address.

Pros: it arrived well packed in a Box!..;-) was in a stat bag and with bubble wrap. VERY NICE! thank you!

Cons: the little AC connector module was not with it. luckily have have one from another module i can use, but i am still short a module now.

great customer service

New AC Power Charger Adapter for Apple Air A1237 A1369 A1370 A1374 MacBook with Cord
New AC Power Charger Adapter for Apple Air A1237 A1369 A1370 A1374 MacBook with Cord

Pros: first one arrived with a bad connector that worked intermittently. the case had distorted apart from shipping. after an RMA request a new one was sent ASAP. the second one is much better than the first with a tougher case and heavier cord.

Cons: these are not on cards. just is sent without box or anything. in shipping the cord gets rolled around and this can damage MagnaSafe connector. if they would just card it than i think it can arrive in good condition.

Overall Review: Newegg is great! we've been a fan for over ten years. their product search-ability is one of the best on the web.
