MSI Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 RX 480 GAMING X 8G 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card

Pros: Great Value 50% of a gtx 1080 for 30% of the price.
Really impressed with the performance at this price point!

Cons: Drivers! - mouse pointer corruption! unbelievable! This bug has plagued ATI for decades and to have it return to ruin my Out-of-box experience gaming with my kids on Christmas Day... is just atrocious software quality control. Shaking my head.


Other Thoughts: Apparently the issue showed up in 16.12.1 (12/07/2016) and was supposedly resolved in the 16.12.2 (12/19/2016) release (driver 16.50.2011) which was "optional" so the "easy" web-based installer and the auto-updater didn't pick-up it up automatically. You have to explicitly download the full installer with this later version. Another fail! If you've fixed an embarrassing bug, make sure the easy button will get it out to people! Shaking my head again. I so want to root for AMD for selling a great product a good price, but this kind of repeated failure in execution leaves me bewildered.

After wasting 50 minutes manually downloading and clean installing drivers and rebooting, I think this is solved for now.

With the whole FreeSync/Gsync thing, I really wanted to become an AMD fanboy again but I just can't yet.

SAMSUNG K409S (CLT-K409S/XAA) Toner Cartridge Black

5 out of 5 eggs Newegg - Best and service 04/20/2011

This review is from: SAMSUNG K409S (CLT-K409S/XAA) Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: Good OEM toner.

Cons: wish Samsung had higher capacity cartridges.

Other Thoughts: I shopped around this time just to make sure... of course Newegg still has the best price I could find. It was almost half the price of the local office-supply stores.

I considered the two-pack to save about $7 more by buying two at once, but decided on this single pack.

Shipped same day, great external packaging, (some places just slap a label on the retail box... not Newegg of course)

It had been six months since I needed to buy toner.

Hitachi GST 0A38016 1TB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs Fine performance - great price! 08/09/2009

This review is from: Hitachi GST 0A38016 1TB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Plenty fast, very inexpensive, and it's BIG!

I exercised it a bunch on arrival just to make sure that if was going to fail early, it would do so during the Newegg return period. It now has worked flawlessly for the last 4 months.

Cons: Only what is common to all drives this big.

While this is the among fastest drives I've used in a desktop (at about 90 to 120 MB/second ) because it is SO BIG it takes a some time to format, clone, fill-up, etc.

It's a bit like filling up a stadium through a doorway designed for a theater... it just takes a while to get everybody in or out.

Other Thoughts: Upon arrival, I filled it up a couple of times with copies of large files just to exercise it. Supposedly this isn't necessary, but I never trust a new drive right away.

Actually I never trust *any* drive completely... old or new, fast or slow, big or small, expensive or cheap, good brand or bad... hard drives fail... even SSDs can fail (at a lower rate). That is why we have backups! duh!

Statistically the failure-rate-difference between brands is minimal, and no brand is or will ever be failure-proof enough to get you out of backups for data that you care about.

Please stop all the assertions based on tiny sample sizes that one brand fails and another one never does...

Anyone whining about loosing their precious data has only themselves to blame.

This has been doing a great job of storing my back-ups, and large media files. Stop shopping and get TWO today! (One is for backups remember?)
