XFX Radeon R9 280X DirectX 11.2 R9-280X-TDBD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Black Double Dissipation Edition Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Shipping speed and the xfx cooling. Fans are more silent then my asus hd 7850. Having good airflow through the case helps as well.

Cons: Upon first boot got an instant blue screen. Second boot went well until I started updating drivers, then it blue screened again. Third boot I was able to update my drivers fine and then began going to through the games I play to see how the card was doing under graphic loads. Temps where good, but I ran into artifacting in bf4, ac4, and watchdogs on on ultra settings 1080p res and maxed filtering. Ran eso and wildstar fine.(expected) I also was having desktop icon flickers when no programs where running.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed tat this seems to be an on-going issue with the latest 14.4 amd driver. For the price I expect these issues not to exist, but stuff happens. I got an rma from newegg last night but figured I would post a review with my experience with the card to see if they can contact me in regards to the bios update I may need.

*note: checked all my drivers in my machine including chipset and others, un-installed and re-installed amd drivers with no change in the issue. XFX got back to me 3 days after contacting them, already went through their checklist and the problems are still there.

The card is still usable at lower graphic setting, but I still encounter desktop flickers and game crashes. Everything runs fine though when I run my hd 7850.

Wacom Intuos Pro PTH651 8.8
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great tablet for doing any type of digital art! Extremely easy to get set up and working on any machine. Tracks very well, no lag when going cordless. Works great on a multiple monitor set up if your moving between design programs.

Cons: Like what was stated in another review, the touch sensors on the navigation keys was a tad frustrating when first using it. Mainly from switching to my mouse and my forearm resting on them. Not enough so to take away an egg. Just don't rest your hand on them... simple.

Also you can easily change the orientation of the tablet if you can't help but need your fingers on those buttons while drawing.

Other Thoughts: I use this mainly for digital painting and drawing, it was an upgrade from a Wacom I had had for around four years, so a much needed upgrade at that. Features like touch, zoom, swivel, where new to me when first using this pad. I normally just keep them turned off as my work style has me always holding the stylus in my right hand while using hotkeys and panning with my left on the keyboard.

In another review they mentioned the roughness of the drawing surface. I did notice this as well but just went into the tablet settings and messed around with my pen pressure sensitivity. My nibs have been lasting longer as a result. The plastic nibs though do feel extremely rough while drawing and made me start stressing about how it may "damage" the drawing surface. To rid myself of this stress I've just started using felt only nibs and have fallen in love with their feel on the pad. Note that the felt tips have a shorter life then the plastic.

Bottom line, Wacom gives you enough features to really gear this thing to your work style and preferences giving it 5/5 in my opinion.

Corsair M65 Vengeance USB Wired Laser Gaming Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs good, not great 04/28/2014

This review is from: Corsair M65 Vengeance USB Wired Laser Gaming Mouse

Pros: Good mouse, nice visual aesthetic, feels good in the hand.

Cons: after one week of using this mouse in ESO the left click started sticking and making a faint squeak with every click. This factor was just to annoying for my personality and resulted in the 2 egg deduction.
