XFX PRO850W XXX Edition Semi-Modular 80 Plus Silver Certified 850 Watt Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Semi modular
Never had any power related issues
Looks good in the case

Cons: After owning the PSU for about 3 months, it developed a very irritating fan ticking noise. I understand that occasional lemons will slip through the cracks, but a quick google shows that this seems to be a pretty common problem with XFX's XXX series. Whether they cheaped out on the fan, are slipping in quality control, or this is just a widespread fluke, I couldn't say.

But I do know that I can't eat the 2-4 weeks of RMA downtime when my income relies on working from home. If XFX could implement an advanced RMA policy similar to EVGA or Corsair, that'd be swell.

Also, the cables feel a bit too short, but my case is huge so that isn't entirely their fault.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked great for the first 18 months

Cons: After 18 months of use, the drive has suddenly died overnight without warning.

Other Thoughts: I tried replacing the SATA cable, plugging into a different SATA slot, using my USB docking station, plugging it into a different computer - nothing will recognize it (won't show in my BIOS, recovery console, windows explorer via USB dock). It powers up but isn't making any abnormal noise. I lost a lot of data that I hadn't backed up, which is of course my own fault; lesson learned. I've just never had a drive die so quickly, without warning, and not be recoverable through do-it-yourself means. I will not be purchasing Samsung/Seagate drives again.

PLANTRONICS GameCom 777 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not angry, but wouldn't buy again 01/14/2010

This review is from: PLANTRONICS GameCom 777 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Surround Sound Gaming Headset

Pros: - Clear sound
- Microphone quality
- Comfortable AFTER break-in period
- Plantronics RMA is painless

Cons: - Build quality. After owning these for about 6 months, the plastic headband snapped, leaving the left ear cup/microphone dangling. Shortly after, the right ear cup snapped off where it attaches to the headband. I am not hard on my equipment, and was surprised when they fell apart. Could've just been a lemon. I shipped my headset to the Plantronics Service Center, and received a brand new set back from them about 2 weeks later.

- Not as much bass as I hoped for.

- 5.1 Surround Sound is questionable.

Other Thoughts: For once, I actually didn't buy this from Newegg. Couldn't resist a nearly 50% discount from another site. Still love the 'egg though, and can't say enough good things about my satisfaction with them.
