RAZER Goliathus CONTROL Edition Soft Mouse Pad - Medium
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Not authentic 09/18/2016

This review is from: RAZER Goliathus CONTROL Edition Soft Mouse Pad - Medium

Pros: Maybe its a nice gaming mat?

Cons: Not really sure because I'm not keeping it.

Other Thoughts: This is not an authentic Razer Goliathus mousepad. I already own one and here's why I am claiming that this mat is phony:
-The image on the mat is wrong (the real graphic is of much higher quality)
-The mat surface texture is wrong (the real mat is significantly less porous)
-The stitching on the mat is wrong
-The non-slip material on the back of the mat is wrong
-The cardboard box is wrong
-The printing on the box is clearly a terrible copy (letters blacked out, and the entire box has a dull gray finish)

This doesn't seem like a bad gaming mat. The problem is that I ordered and paid for a Razer Goliathus gaming mat because I already have one and really like it. I am very disappointed that this can happen on Newegg (false representation of a product) and will be filing a claim against the seller.

EDIT: This review was written about the gaming mat that I received from Corn Electronics and is not a reflection of an authentic "Razer Goliathus Control Edition - Medium" mat. The Razer Goliathus is a great gaming mat, but Newegg merges the reviews of the mat from all sales sources. The Marketplace seller sent a phony mat to me, and now I am ordering one directly from Newegg at nearly twice the price. Don't make the same mistake that I did by purchasing from the aforementioned seller of this mat.

SanDisk 32GB 32G Cruzer Extreme SDCZ80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive with Free Bonus USB Lanyard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I just received this drive today. While my review cannot speak for the longevity of this product, the performance merits merits a review.

I plugged this drive into the USB 3.0 port of my Asus Formula V and ran the USBFlashSpeed benchmarking tool. Very impressive to say the least. Two benchmarks were completed and both yielded nearly identical results. Read speeds of 194MB/s and 195MB/s and write speeds of 112MB/s and 110MB/s. Those marks put this flash drive as the second fastest read speeds and fourth fastest write speeds recorded on the website. Excellent performance!!

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: The lanyard provided with this flash drive is a wrist lanyard. Total length of the lanyard is less than six inches. If you were hoping for a neck lanyard, you'll be disappointed and need to find one elsewhere.

ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Good but for how long? 10/16/2012

This review is from: ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card

Pros: I purchased this card back in June 2011, and it had been working fine until just recently. The sound quality and output power were significantly better than the onboard audio from my MSI P67-GD65 (until the wheels fell off, that is).

Cons: Without making any configuration changes inside my case or even opening my case for that matter, this card now seems to have a grounding problem. The microphone/line-in creates a very obnoxious whirring noise. It sounds like there's a helicopter in my living room. I have checked for any loose wires making contact with the card, any loose cables elsewhere in my case, and checked the power input to the card.

I now have the card uninstalled and just sitting on my desk while I decide what to do with it. Onboard is the only real option right now. I am still under warranty, I believe, but I haven't been a big fan of Asus tech support in the past. Their products are usually amazing, but the tech support has lacked somewhat. We'll see.

Other Thoughts: My issue with this card could be an anomaly, and it certainly won't stop me from desiring to purchase Asus products in the future.
