Acer B223WGJbmdr Black 22
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Has all of the stand adjustments one would want.

Cons: Made by Acer. This company outsources all of its tech support which refuses to help you when you call unless you pay for it, even the warranty that comes with this product didn't get me the support I needed. When I looked into the support I needed they wanted to charge me more than one monitor was worth, and I bought 3.

Despite what they say their techs have little knowledge on issues brought to them, they asked me three times how many computers I had hooked up to my 3 monitors and every time I replied one, which caused some confusion to them.

They pointed out errors in the event viewer that are going to be there no matter how nicely set up your PC is such as connection timeouts and file not found errors. They refused to help me unless I paid for some expensive service they provide on the side.

Other Thoughts: These monitors aren't great for side viewing, which wouldn't harm the normal user using one screen. If your going for Eyefinity spend a little bit money, and go a better name than Acer.

If you only need one monitor and don't anticipate running into issues this is a good monitor for the price. You get what you pay for.

Don't install the software that comes on the disk.

V-MODA Crossfade LP Over-Ear Metal Headphones in White Pearl
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing Deal 07/31/2011

This review is from: V-MODA Crossfade LP Over-Ear Metal Headphones in White Pearl

Pros: These headphones are comparable to the Monster Beats headphones by Doctor Dre. They cost $20000 less and have a wider response bandwidth by a significant amount.
Monster Beats: 20hz - 20kHz
Crossfade LP's: 5hz - 30kHz

I previously was using a Razer Carcharias headset and the Crossfade LP's are a slight upgrade for me. The biggest reason that I want these headphones is that they have a detachable stereo to stereo wire, the part of your headphones/ headset that breaks the most causing you to buy new ones. If the Kevlar wire ever goes bad then you can simply replace it with a new stereo-stereo cord and save a ton of money.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I just bought these from a different site because they were 2 dollars cheaper than newegg. Then newegg comes around and sells them for $50 less than the price I bought them. What a shell shocker!

RAZER Black Wired BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing Keyboard 02/03/2011

This review is from: RAZER Black Wired BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: After using this keyboard for awhile its hard to imagine what would motivate anyone to spend anything over $100 for a membrane keyboard. Mechanical keyboards are so much nicer to game on, and true gamers will have deteriorated performance by looking at an LCD screen on their keyboard which is going to jack up the price.

This keyboard has really clicky keys which provide audible feedback while playing games which require a lot of button mashing. I have come to rather enjoy listening to it as I type as well. If your a gamer there is a good chance that you wear a headset that surrounds the ears. Personally I own the Razer Carcharias headset and can hardly hear the keyboard while gaming.

The F1 key is slightly shifted to the right for reasons which the razer company has studied with the gamer in mind. This is the biggest change I have found with the layout in addition to smaller key size. I have had no problems with the changes to the keyboard layout.

Cons: Few, and minor.

The biggest con, which is minor for me, is the paint on the keys. It deteriorates rather quickly compared to other boards which is a good reason to look into upgrading to the ultimate if you're not a very good typist.

Another con that might be specific to my keyboard is something I ran into while playing Super Meat Boy. If you have no Idea what Super Meat Boy is understand that it is a game where you JAM on the directional keys. The left directional key occasionally stuck in place while playing super meat boy. I dont think that this is something that would happen very often.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is probably not for anyone whose significant other sleeps near them while they are typing.
