EVGA 04G-P4-2686-KR GeForce GTX 680 w/ Backplate 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent graphics, great FPS, no overheating problems in my system. Noise level is great (most of the time I can barely hear it, if at all. Maybe my games aren't pushing to the max then...)

I received this card as an RMA replacement of the same 2GB model. I gave the original model (02G-P4-2680-KR) a 1-egg review because it became a brick after a matter of hours. It is very cool that EVGA sent me a better card than I had bought, after the original one failed so catastrophically.

I got Assasin's Creed III and Borderlands 2 as part of the original purchase.

I played hours and hours of games on it without problems. I did experience stability problems outside of games which are summarized in the cons section.

Cons: The drivers are unstable and have given me endless headaches dealing with EVGA support. I have the same symptoms everyone else describes online (screen goes black, then reloads with a message that my drivers have stopped working. Occasionally this ends in a BSOD or a frozen machine with white lines across a black screen). After extensive testing and working with tech support, we determined it must be the drivers causing the problem (I was able to reproduce the issue exactly in another computer with a fresh Windows 7 install and completely different hardware). After I RMA'd the card they sent me it back and said they tested it and it works fine.

I believe them when they say the card is fine, because I was playing games for hours with it. It is just when I do specific actions, like browsing the web with 2 types of web browsers. I was able to isolate the crashes to times when I was watching a video with Firefox and browsing the web with IE 9 at the same time. The video would go great indefinitely until the moment I opened IE, then within a minute or two my screen would crash.

Until they fix the drivers, I will apparently have to get used to only using one browser at a time... Time to choose my favorite...

Other Thoughts: I don't know yet if the driver problems are enough to prevent me from liking this card. I know it's great hardware, from the short time that I've had it, but such a high-end card should have high quality drivers, and so far I'm not convinced that they are.

1 out of 5 eggs Garbage 02/21/2013

This review is from: Seismic Audio - SAPT143 - Zip Ties - 4 Inches (Pack of 50)

Pros: none

Cons: I only got 5 out of a bag of 50 to work. They snap, break, and do anything BUT what they're supposed to do, which is to hold wires together. I was very disappointed with this product.

Other Thoughts: Save your money, but a more expensive set and forget about these.

ICY DOCK MB453SPF-B 3 in 2 SATA I, II & III Hot-Swap Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does what it says - holds 3x 3.5" drives in two 5.25" bays. Easy to mount in the case, fits perfectly. I installed it in my server with three 1TB drives configured in RAID 5 (configure with your motherboard's RAID controller).

Cons: Feels cheap, but it will probably hold up. The drive trays are annoying to work with, because you have to mount each drive to a tray before sliding them into the cage. If this would bug you I recommend a trayless design, otherwise it works fine and is perfectly functional.
