ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4558U (2.8 GHz) 8 GB Memory 256 GB SSD Intel Iris Graphics 5100 13.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: makes a good paper weight.

Cons: -expensive.
-once the bettery is dead you can't use it anymore.

Other Thoughts: got it on the 5th, used it on the 6th, wont charge again.
tried an aftermarket psu from best buy, the stats are exactly the same as the one that came with it, battery still wont charge.
The original PSU's led just switches between green and orange over and over again. WIll not charge. VERY disappointed. This thing is FAR too expensive to have stupid issues that could have been caught before it shipped by a testing method.

I followed the instructions to the letter.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 XT w/Boost DirectX 11 100354XTL 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Fast.
-one of a kind
-technically a watered down 7950 (7930 would be what this card is, but I think its still faster than that would be)
-virtually 0 fan noise.

Cons: -An UNBEARABLE TORTUOUS coil squealing. I'm about to take the card apart and hot glue/finger nail polish the coils. It is seriously the LOUDEST coil squeal I've ever heard.
I've read that it can be solved by using different power cables., or the above mentioned clear nail polish, or hot glue, or melted wax, or just by continued use. Like leaving it squealing over night or something

Going to try some of the above, if that maddening sound doesn't go away, going to RMA the card, and get another brand.

Other Thoughts: If it didn't abuse my ears with its squealing I'd give it 5 eggs.

Corsair Vengeance M60  Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Performance, FPS Gaming Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -comfortable. (takes a few moments to get used to)
-easy to hold onto.
-can change the wight if you want.
-works on any surface.

Cons: -Not really a con, but the red "sniper" button is a bit to far forwardly placed.
not enough to take an egg off though. I did just reprogram it for whatever I want in whatever game I'm playing.

Other Thoughts: Will be getting a second one. one for home and one for work.
