Pioneer 4.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Just installed - We will see 10/01/2009

This review is from: Pioneer 4.3" In-Dash Navigation w/ CD Playback (AVIC-U310BT)

Pros: Inexpensive
Ease of use

Cons: POIs
Smaller screen - but why do you need a 7" screen for TTS?
SD Card DOES NOT play MP3s - or I just dont know how to get it up and running

Other Thoughts: I installed this a couple of days ago and I am actually liking it. POI database is laughable but you can import via the avic feed. It's just a hassle especially when I was running out of gas...yes, they do not have POIs for gas stations built in. I still have yet to experience the problems everyone is stating...

I am kinda bummed that the SD Card does not play MP3s. I looked at a site prior to purchasing this and it stated that it does. I got a 16GB card and loaded it with MP3s and nada. I cannot figure out how to play it from the different sources. I even tried a 1GB card just to make sure that it is not because of the size. Still nothing.

BT is decent. It takes a while to aquire but it works. Mic is good since no one has told me otherwise and sound is great coming out of the speakers (dependent on your system).

XCLIO GREATPOWER 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lot's of power, very quiet, great price.

Cons: Mine might be defective but it definitely cannot handle high end systems

Other Thoughts: Like I stated, mine might be defective and therefore 3 eggs only. I have 790i F.T.W, e8600 (stock), OCZ DDR3-1600 4GB, GTX 280 3-sli, 1x velociraptor 300gb, 2x 1TB, 2x dvd+/-r, G15, MX518, Plantronics usb headset, Swiftech water pump, and 8 fans. Powers up fine and temps are great. ALWAYS HARD LOCKS MY PC. I have tested all other components and finally noticed the +12v drops below 11v on idle and on full load (11.25v idle/ 10.90v load) therefore hard locks. Tested my system with PCP&C 1000w and no issues. RMA in process and keeping fingers crossed that the new one does not do this.

ASUS Black 5X BD-ROM 12X DVD-ROM 32X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Combo Model BC-1205PT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great drive for Blu-ray movies. Easy install. Pretty straight forward

Cons: Software that comes with it is cr*p. You definitely need to get better software. I had a previous version so the upgrade didn't cost me much.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a PC capable of playing Blu-ray, meaning HDCP. My GPU was HDCP compliant but I had to update to the new drivers.
