Ectaco 5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lightweight... Fairly good screen... Very low price... SD Card Slot.

Cons: You get what you pay for!!! Battery gets very hot. Battery life is horrible, it doesn't even last through one flight from ATL to London and I slept through most of the flight. The case seems to absorb the oils in your hands through normal use and then those areas collect dirt. I had to constantly clean it. Charging takes a very long time given short battery life.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a possible replacement for my first generation Kindle. I just couldn't justify spending $489 for the Kindle DX that I wanted and my K1 is on it's last leg. It was a mistake! I guess the adage "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here.

As I mentioned above, the battery gets VERY hot when charging and using. The charging takes forever as well! After discovering these problems, I returned my first unit for another one. I was promised that this one would be better. It was the exact same. I spent over 3 hours on hold and getting bounced from person to person trying to get this returned and a refund. (NOTE: This was not through Newegg, it was through Ectaco directily. I should have purchased through Newegg because Newegg has MUCH better customer service!)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None!!!

Cons: Extremely large, failed to boot in my brand new P5K pro. DOA

Other Thoughts: I got this RAM on recomendation from a friend who has the same board as me. His works, mine were DOA. I manage to get a couple of Muskin sticks that match the specs of these and everything booted right up. These are going back!!!

ASUS GeForce GTX 260 DirectX 10 ENGTX260/HTDP/896M 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great for a video card. I bought this to run two 28" LCD's I bought for a new high performance CAD workstation in my office. Card pushes both screens to full res filled with windows without a hint of an issue.

Cons: Only shipped with ONE SLi power adapter, but card needs TWO SLi power cables. Kinda stupid in my book.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a bunch of extra stuff, leather mousepad, etc...
