Most Favorable Review

Go NEWEGG!

Canon A410 Silver 3.2MP 3.2X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Canon A410 Silver 3.2MP 3.2X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: Any camera that my wife can figure out and can take good pictures with must be good. LOL Having universal batteries and a super small memory card is icing on the cake. Outstanding.

Cons: Bought it for somebody else except me. LOL

Overall Review: Maybe when I get home from deployment I can pry this little thingy from my wife's hands long enough to try some serious tinkering.

Most Critical Review

Worth a try for cheap upgrade

Rosewill RC-400 Networking LAN Card With Heatsink & 4 LED indicators 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI V2.2, 32/64-bit, 33/66MHz
Rosewill RC-400 Networking LAN Card With Heatsink & 4 LED indicators 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI V2.2, 32/64-bit, 33/66MHz

Pros: Cheap and shipped fast.

Cons: Refuses to connect at 1000 to my Netgear gigabit switch which is already connected to another computer on the same type of cable much farther away.

Overall Review: Thought I could get a cheap upgrade so I took a leap of faith and was disappointed on this one. Will only connect at 100 to my switch which is only 2 feet away on good quality cable no matter what driver I use. I mean, the lights won't even come on sometimes, some drivers don't work and rosewill tech support is horrible. Go ahead, try to submit a help request online... To cheap to return, combat loss... :)

Pretty good

Acer VG270U bmiipx 27" Quad HD 2560 x 1440 2K 1ms (VRB) 75Hz 2xHDMI DisplayPort AMD FreeSync Built-in Speakers Backlit LED IPS Gaming Monitor
Acer VG270U bmiipx 27" Quad HD 2560 x 1440 2K 1ms (VRB) 75Hz 2xHDMI DisplayPort AMD FreeSync Built-in Speakers Backlit LED IPS Gaming Monitor

Pros: Bright and clear, good display for the price, uses 100x100 vesa, has hdmi and dp, no stuck pixels, optional software app to manage some settings from the desktop which is very nifty

Cons: Not 'zeroframe' expect about half inch of black space at the top and sides, use of vrb beyond 'normal' has a huge dimming effect

Overall Review: I had been looking for a budget 2k display for a while, finally pulled the trigger on this one, it checked all the boxes for me although there was a loose 'extra' screw inside the case, I took it out to prevent a short later, and everything works fine. I would buy again.

Happy Camper

POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 1GBD5-PPG Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 1GBD5-PPG Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Nice performance for a budget enthusiast. Plays high res games well and doesn't burn too much power in idle.

Cons: Best used in a non-crossfire situation without another card nearby due to clearance and air flow challenges caused by cooler fan implementation.

Overall Review: This card runs very well in HD. I run Dirt2 and TRU at full 1080p with HDMI 5.1 channel audio with practically no complaints. The fan is too thick though and has both physical contact and airflow restriction when used with a card two slots over. So, if you have a MicroATX board and you need to use that slot invest in a rack server PCI port extender and give this baby some space. The fan is nice and quiet when idling and literally screams when going at full speed. To me that's good because when I am gaming at high speed and high volume I can't be bothered by overheating computers. Enough said. I'm going to throw Crisis on that DX11 machine and see what she can do.

High Density

Kingston 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM Unbuffered DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Specific Memory Model M12864E40
Kingston 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM Unbuffered DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Specific Memory Model M12864E40

Pros: Kingston stands behind their product

Cons: The revision shown in the image is low density but what arrived had half as many chips indicating higher density. Therefore, the Everex LM7WZ could only see half of the memory.

Overall Review: Attention to detail, Newegg, update your images and Kingston, publish more detailed specs because there are two revisions to this product and they are not interchangeable in all cases. Have a nice day. :) PS. This is my second review for this product but the first included a video clip and magically disappeared.

Mixed Results

Kingston 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM Unbuffered DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Specific Memory Model M12864E40
Kingston 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM Unbuffered DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Specific Memory Model M12864E40

Pros: Works as designed...

Cons: ...except not in older machines. Not the same density as pictured.

Overall Review: OK, I too went to both the Newegg and Kingston configurators because I tried KVR SODIMMs first and the machine I tried them on only saw half of each memory stick. Further, neither the notebook MFR, Newegg, nor Kingston is identifying the density because there are TWO REVISIONS. The lower density revision has, as pictured, 8 chips on each side. The two I received had 4 on each side. Confirmed with Kingston, another case of density revision causing problems with "guaranteed compatibility." So, I called Kingston and they're swapping them for the older model for free including all shipping charges. Nice... In Newegg's defense, you can't post specs or updated photos without the manufacturers support so Kingson needs to get their act together, all they do is memory so they should get it right.
