Apple MD827LL/A OEM EarPods Headset with Remote and Mic (White)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Performance for cheap Apple Original! 10/06/2013

This review is from: Apple MD827LL/A OEM EarPods Headset with Remote and Mic (White)

Pros: Genuine Apple product with a usable carry/storage case.
Great for front audio jack on a desktop PC (Windows/Linux).
Superior sound and excellent fit for comfort.
Noise blocker...I can't hear anyone or anything except for what I'm listening to with the earpods.
No easily worn rubber ring around earpods like older version from Apple.

Cons: Easily tangled.
Volume control/pause/mic functions do not work on a Windows or Linux based PC. I'm not sure if Macs apply....don't own any yet.
White color can attract dirt and scuff marks....Be wary around small children.
Because this isn't a wireless headset, you'll have to endure the limited amount of movement if these are used for a desktop PC or any non-mobile application. I was well aware of these restrictions before my initial purchase.

Other Thoughts: After giving my original pair of iphone 5 earpods away, I was surprised to find this OEM pair on Newegg for under $30 dollars. Naturally, I jumped on them. I primarily use them for testing the front audio jacks functionality after building or repairing PC's. I'm relatively close enough to my work area so as not to be hindered by the cable. They have proven to be an indispensable tool for my favorite hobby/pastime.

Dell S2240T Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent Dell quality
Smooth touch interface from edge to edge
Immediate response upon touch
Excellent for Windows 8
Great adjustment if using primarily for touch.

Cons: Not so wonderful with Windows 7 (not Dell's fault...W7 is not W8!)
Colors are not as vibrant as I'd hoped, but this isn't a gaming monitor so...oh well.
Screen can't adjust/slide vertically (not best for the tall or weaker necks).
Price is way too high just for multitouch function.
Won't make anyone a Windows 8 fanatic anytime soon!

Other Thoughts: I've greatly desired a multi-touch monitor since the debut of Windows 8 in my home. Unfortunately, I now see W8 primary flaw is age. Until microsoft's current OS has gained sufficient maturity there's no reason for anyone to upgrade to this monitor.

Now, if you've been wholly seduced by W8 touch capabilities or you loathe the simplicity of a mouse/keyboard then you've hit pay dirt with this finely constructed DELL monitor.
So far I'm underwhelmed with touchscreens outside of smartphones or my iPad.

I'm in no way utterly regretful of my decision to purchase this monitor except I should have waited till 2014 or later to make my purchase. It undoubtedly will prove much less expensive.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 3.5" form factor
90GB Capacity (perfect for 64bit OS)
$49 price point
RAID 0 2 or more of these for max performance gains.

Cons: SATA II speed limits
Never have I reached beyond the 100's Mbs speed in a non-RAID config.

Other Thoughts: I've been a serious OCZ refurb SSD addict for almost a year thanks to Newegg. After numerous refurb installs, it's hard to actually return to HDD's for any reason other than bulk storage. Stick with the Vertex versions since they'll always prove faster than those cows known as OCZ Agility.
