Most Critical Review

BIOSTAR 945GC-M4

BIOSTAR 945GC-M4 Socket 478 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
BIOSTAR 945GC-M4 Socket 478 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This M/B none. If you like to gamble then this one is for you. Biostar Tech. Support answered their phone promptly and didn't leave me on hold forever which was nice.

Cons: DOA on arrival. With new M/B supported hardware, (CPU and Memory) wouldn't post. I won't do this again.

Overall Review: After years of buying from the Egg, my first RMA. I guess the cheaper hardware becomes, the more of this we will see. After reading reviews on all of the brands regarding Micro ATX boards, I may just re-install the original board this one was to replace. That board ran 24/7 for 8 years. Newegg service is still the best @ five stars.

Beautiful Picture.

SAMSUNG LC34J791WTNXZA 34" 3440 x 1440 WQHD 2K Resolution 100Hz HDMI DisplayPort 2x Thunderbolt 3 AMD FreeSync Built-in Speakers Curved Quantum Dot Color Ultra Wide Screen Gaming Monitor

Pros: Pretty Monitor as well. Getting use to the curved design but I really like it so far. I set this up and powered up to a black screen. I resolved that issue quickly. Most will know this but some may not. The owners manual found on the Mfg. website (PDF) shows pictures of cable connections. Its a monitor, not brain surgery. Well the illustration clearly shows a connection using a DVI-D 24+1 pin plug. Either a misprint or the earlier revision of this monitor actually could be used. The revision I have supports only HDMI or DP. Lucky for me, I had HDMI or I would have sadly had to return this for a different monitor. I am glad I was able to keep it. I use it in a Windows and a Linux environment.

Cons: None at all. Earlier reviews of this monitor were not too promising. I think the newer revision has probably resolved issues the first units had but that's just a guess. Mine was Mfg. in Feb. 22.

Overall Review: I would recommend this monitor to anyone. I wouldn't change a thing.

Great Product

Pros: The only Hard Drive I have ever used.

Cons: Nothing negative to say, except the fact that this product is no longer being manufactured.

Overall Review: Yes, I would recommend this product line from WD. I bought the last three that Newegg had left in stock. A new old stock Drive will still be sealed in a factory box with a "tamper proof" sticker intact on the Drive bag.

Pros: Well built unit. Nice and heavy, the way a good power supply should be.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: One reviewer complained of fan noise. My unit is pretty quiet. Never put too much stock into a negative review. Many negative reviews is a different story. My other PSU's have been running for years now and their fans are a lot louder than this one.

Pros: Great little printer. Easy set-up. WiFi configuration could not have been easier. I highly recommend this printer.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: My HP All In One is still going strong after all these years. This purchase was a no-brainer.
