SAPPHIRE Radeon R7 260X DirectX 11.2 100366-2L 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Will work, sometimes
-AMD Mantle significantly improves performance in BF4

Cons: -Cannot OC with any AMD 14.x drivers. The slightest OC = instant driver crash
-Even current WHQL drivers frequently crash, none of the 14.x drivers improve on this
-AMD Catalyst Center Uninstall Manager does not remove the driver, ever. I've had to use a driver sweeper app to remove drivers each time I have had to uninstall (which is frequent)
-AMD Raptr also like to crash
-When connected to a TV (not monitor) via HDMI, the TV will occasionally turn off. This has been verified with two separate TV's
-Sometimes the screen will go black on either a monitor or TV when connected via HDMI and it will have to be turned on / off in order for the display to resume. If this doesn't work, unplugging / plugging back in the HDMI cable will work.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card with the expectation that AMD had improved their graphics software in the past. According to reviews, this seemed to be true. However, this simply is not the case. It has been a nightmare to use and I don't believe that AMD will improve their drivers and software anytime soon. This is the 7970m all over again.

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset
  • Verified Owner

2 out of 5 eggs Great Sound Quality, but Cheap Build 02/20/2013

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset

Pros: Pros:

-Excellent microphone clarity
-Superb sound quality
-Virtual 7.1 surround sound works great, especially in games like Guild Wars 2
-Deep bass and crisp highs

Cons: Cons:

-Cheap / shoddy plastic body
-Cheap ear cushion material
-They broke near the ear cuff, as so many others had reported.
-Top of headband supported by cardboard

Other Thoughts: I wish that Corsair would have put more time and thought into the materials that they chose to build these headphones with, because they have the best sound quality out of any "gaming" headsets that I have used- with very powerful bass and excellent virtual surround sound. Because they cracked around the cuff, I am going to have to send them in to the manufacturer for repair. Hopefully they accept my RMA request, as they had for others who had encountered the same issue.

lenovo IdeaPad K1 (130422U) Tablet - Black NVIDIA Tegra 2 1.00GHz 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Honeycomb 3.2.1
-Tegra 2 Processor = Ultra Fast
-Battery Life
-Some* of the packaged software
-Build Quality

Cons: -Screen. The screen does not get too bright.
-Micro SD Card Slot. It is a hassled to change out the Micro SD card, it feels like the cover will break.
-Most of the prepackaged software is bloat and will cause issue with the OS. (Freezing, force closing and otherwise)
-Says that is has 32GB, I only have 24 usable.

Other Thoughts: Ultimately, I love the Android OS and therefore a Honeycomb tablets were first on my list for Christmas gifts to my wife and I. The fact that this tablet runs the latest version 3.2.1 is great. The processor plays advanced 3d games and emulators with ease. The battery life lasts ~8 hr of constant use. While some of the prepackaged software was useful (such as Docs to Go), most of it was bloat and unnecessary. The build quality is sturdy and the rubberized grip on the back is awesome! At 300$, the device can't be beat ;). Sadly, the Micro SD slot is horrific. It requires a paperclip to push it out. The internal memory is also much less than promised; 24GB as opposed to 32GB. Furthermore, the screen isn't too bright (it has great res and color though).

The worst part about all of this is that I purchased two of these tablets and one, my wife's, broke down within three days (screen went crazy then restarted the device). I will replace it with Newegg, though.
