EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectX 11 02G-P4-3660-KR 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A great card. I've had it for a little over 3 months with no major issues. EVGA has exceptionally good tech support.

Cons: I rma'd the first one after investigating some issues with EVGA. However, it turned out that I had a software conflict. The card drivers are not compatible with Stardock Windowblinds. I finally ended up uninstalling the Stardock software as it would cause screen menus to remain on screen (required manually changing the resolution to remove the artifacts). Tried numerous fixes with EVGAs tech folks - no stars removed because it wasn't really a fault with the hardware.

Other Thoughts: Be careful when selecting a video card. Make sure it will fit in your case around any parts projecting from the motherboard or other components.

Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * So much faster than a standard HDD - night and day here
* Easy to install with the included mounting bracket
* Great replacement for laptop or netbook

Cons: * Did not include laptop data migration cable which is shown in the instructions (that's the -1 egg). Bad intel. Go sit in the corner!
* The included mini-CD only has the manual pdf's on it. No drivers, software, data migration tool. Nada. Make sure to download that stuff beforehand.

Other Thoughts: * If your main hdd is larger than the ssd - you can not just image the drive. You need to adjust the partition to a size less than the ssd. This can be problematic if your paging file and other things are in the way. I used a third party partition program to fix this issue as windows disk manager wouldn't move a few files.
* Make sure to go to intel's web site and pick up the ssd toolbox ( The little fold out piece of paper in the box has a few other links listed.

Antec P280 Black Aluminum / Steel Super Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Great design 12/02/2011

This review is from: Antec P280 Black Aluminum / Steel Super Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Exterior: Mat black with gun-metal grey front door. The front door will open and swing all the way flat against the side of the case. It's on a two-part hinge. This is great if you just want to leave the front of the case open. Filter on the front behind the door is easy to remove/clean. There's also a filter on the bottom of the case that's removable from the side. Top ports are accessible without opening door. Door's lined with foam. Sides are lined with a plastic sheet (inside).

Swag bag: The standard bag o' misc. screws with some bonus zip ties! A miniscule instruction page to line your trash bin.

Inside: The rest of the drive slots are great. The back of the drive bay is open allowing superb cable routing with 4 1"x3" rubber lined holes in the back-plate (and a fifth unlined one). All the edges are rolled and smooth. Room inside to accommodate long vid cards and such. Room for most Mobo styles.

Cons: Outside: Rubberized feet would be nice instead of plastic, but I can buy some stick ons to address that.

Inside: As previous reviewer state, the top 5.25 bays are lacking in design. Screw holes on the left side would be a nice feature to secure anything installed. I may have to do some light modding to address this. Also, more than one spare silicone grommet would be nice.

Nothing stood out enough to subtracts eggs though imo.

Other Thoughts: The case has good weight to it - not horribly heavy.

The metal on the door seems to be finger print resistant (may be an unintended feature =P).

The case looks really nice. It's great for those of us that don't like lots of glaring lights or goofy neon tubing.
