Gateway FHX2153L Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Awesome resolution, light weight. Tilt adjustment. Very minor scuffing. Decent amount of picture adjustment options. LED backlighting.

Cons: Very sensitive to view angles. Your light/contrast balance will vary drastically with minimal movement. Speakers are nearly worthless. Tinny sound, non-existent bass, requires menu mining to adjust basic volume.

Other Thoughts: Even as a refurb with the above issues this is great deal at $70 out the door. Scuffing is minor (on the front bezel) and only noticeable at the right angle.

To Newegg-- The hoops you force buyers to jump through for the WALLET promo is unintuitive and completely inane. After setting up a google wallet, installing your app and installing more android play framework junk, I found out your website cart and mobile app cart doesn't sync, forcing users to refind and reorder the item again on the vastly inferior app site.

If the intent was to drive repeat business to google wallet and your app, it failed here as both were promptly uninstalled simply due to the soul crushing despair inspired by the wholly excruciating process.

SanDisk 1.8
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Fine Hardware, medicore software 10/17/2008

This review is from: SanDisk 1.8" Black 4GB MP3 Player Sansa e260

Pros: Excellent performance in a very solid package, looks sexy. MicroSD expansion slot keeps the hardware fresh. Plenty of features. Sounds great. Dern fine value for the dollar.

Cons: Barely adequate software/firmware support. Video conversion utility needs to die in a fire. Does not seemlessly integrate SDcard memory using native firmware.

Other Thoughts: Even considering the cons, it's still an excellent value and the firmware/software issue is entirely subjective. The e200 series is also supported by Rockbox for those looking for more robust firmware alternatives as long as one is willing to accept a less refined GUI.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3850 DirectX 10.1 100226L 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Card burns through games on a sub $100 budget. Unreal 3 and CoD4 maxed out, no slowdown. Sure there's the 4850, but at under a $100?

Worked out of the box first time. Takes Vista x64 like a man.

Cons: What are these cons you speak of? Are they tasty?

Other Thoughts: Paired with a q6600 @3ghz and 4gb ddr2 800mhz ram
