ZEROtherm CoolMaxx 3000 Dual Fan VGA Cooler
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Why do some bother? 08/05/2010

This review is from: ZEROtherm CoolMaxx 3000 Dual Fan VGA Cooler

Pros: I see far too many people making things up when they review. Making up reasons why a product is good or bad, and believing their made up reasons when it usually has nothing to do with anything. For example, this cooler is bad because it doesn't cover the entire PCB. Wow, it takes about 10 seconds of learning VGA cooling to know that you only need to cool the die, memory and vrm's. You are NOT cooling the PCB, case air flow can handle that. So why dock eggs on a great product because of something you made up, believed and are completely wrong? You shouldn't be overclocking if you believe things like that, either.

Cons: None. Works as advertised, lose about 15-20c depending on room/case temps. Easy installation compared to some heatsinks I've used in the past.

Other Thoughts: There are a lot of people coming into the PC enthusiast market. Far too many are ill-informed, rush, have no patience, do not want to learn, do not understand what they are doing and/or how complex and interdependent ones skills must be to fully complete a build, maintain and tweak it properly for optimal performance based on use. I find it sad when people RMA products, driving up costs for everyone because of things they made up in their head, or complete lack of knowledge/understanding. Things like this wouldn't be tolerated in this field 10-12 years ago when people who bought components REALLY knew what they were getting into, and spent the day/night researching and reading for a maximum understanding. Today there is too much "I want it NOW!" people rush and make errors and blame everyone but themselves. I've seen this industry fall apart from these impatient people who really do not want to learn the ins and outs.

Sony Walkman
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent build quality, GREAT FM recording feature! Love it! Nice space, all around great fun to have. Beats the Ipods!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: To the person a few reviews below. You must not understand this product. Its an MP3/MP4 player, you gave it only 3 eggs, but in your review you clearly stated you do not use it for music. SO WHY BUY A MUSIC PLAYER AND THEN GIVE A BAD REVIEW? Thats YOUR fault not the player. Video playback is just an added cool feature, its NOT MEANT to be your video player. Get a clue. So sick of people on this site giving horrible reviews and wrecking a products reputation because of your own lack of knowledge. Wow, you want video? BUY A VIDEO PLAYER. Makes sense doesn't it? Gosh! Where have all the intelligent people gone!?

WD WD VelociRaptor WD3000GLFSRTL 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Don't listen to the liars who work for other companies spreading rumors and lies about this drive. Certainly don't listen to the "high tech knowledge" guys who actually rely on WINDOWS EXPERIENCE to test and bench their drive. Thats like trying to guess how a car feels and drives just by standing next to it and pretending. Seriously, if you think Windows Experience means ANYTHING you need to give up building PC's because you haven't a clue.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: Sure SSD drives are faster, but we are talking MILLISECONDS. If you notice milliseconds, you are freakin' super human and most likely a robot. People who flip out and talk trash all the time haven't a clue about PCs, and actually are tricked into believing the hype. MILLISECONDS, that means its impossible to notice, we're talking less than a half second of time at MOST. Its not possible to be that impatient. Also, SSD drives are unreliable, easily breakable, performance DEGRADES (does not happen to mechanical drives), also you cannot use a pagefile, superfetch, indexing, search, ect. SSD drives are a joke, and the mechanical drives actually beat SSD drives in a few benchmarks with various tests. You want to RMA all the time? Go SSD. If you want the best warranty in the market, and a drive that WILL LAST OVER 4 YEARS EASILY, then get the V.Raptor. I've had 36, 74, 150 and 300 GB raptors and v.raptors. Not one has died, one is from 2003-2004, still flawless.
