HP Desktop PC DC7900 Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz 4GB 750 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional

2 out of 5 eggs worked out ok in the end... 01/16/2015

This review is from: HP Desktop PC DC7900 Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz 4GB 750 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional

Pros: In the end, I got the machine that was advertised, but it took some effort and time. See "other thoughts".

Cons: Questionable 3rd party vendor.

Other Thoughts: First, I want to emphasize that the problems I had were not caused by New Egg, but by their 3rd party partner. The machine that was delivered had 2GB RAM (4GB was advertised), 160GB HD (750GB was advertised) and an R-DVD drive (RW-DVD was advertised). When I called the grouchy customer service person, she agreed to send me the correct RAM, HD, and RW-DVD but I had to RMA the HD and DVD. The whole process took 3.5 weeks to finally receive the machine I paid for.

FineDiamonds9 FD9S025RWI 1/4ct Round Diamond Stud Earrings 14K White Gold
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have to admit, I was skeptical -- the price seemed too good to be true, even for a pair of only .125 Ct earrings. But both I, and my happy wife, are very pleased. The earrings are petite, but appropriately glittery, and seem to be set well. This is a good buy for a real wife pleaser. Folks have complained about the box, but the earrings were delivered in a standard, fuzzy jewellery box. Nothing special, but fine.

Cons: Bigger? Free?

Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11-U Intel Atom D510 NM10 Chipset 1 x 200Pin Next-Gen NVIDIA ION GPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Once I got HDMI audio working (see below) this unit has proven to be a pretty good MythTV frontend. I have it hooked up to a 720p LCD and it seems to handle the load fine. VDPAU on the Nvidia Ion handles the graphics load nicely.

Cons: Could not get HDMI audio to work with Mythbuntu 10.04 or earlier, and had to jump through some hoops that are documented on the web to get everything going with 10.10.

ZOTAC does NOT seem to honor rebates!!!

Other Thoughts: I always buy a unit that includes a rebate with some trepidation, but thought I'd give Zotac a try anyway. I verified t hat I qualified, filled out the rebate material correctly, sent it all in promptly, and... nothing. That's been over 6 months ago. Vendors/manufacturers must realize that while rebates are a great vehicle to increase sales and profit -- most folks don't send them in -- but failure to fulfill rebates only serves to negatively impact their reputation and put a sizable dent in their sales overall. Much as I might be tempted, I, for one, will not buy another product from Zotac until I receive the promised $30 rebate. From what I've ready in other reviews, I'm not alone. At least for Zotac, it's a scam and a rip off.
