Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd  Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Cheap at time of purchase (~$126)
-No dead pixels
-Good image
-Very lightweight (used on a glass-top, so obviously less weight = better)

Cons: -A bit too washed out/bright by default
-Viewing angles aren't the best

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these as a birthday gift for my brother. While he loves them, his only complaint was that there's too much light and not enough "deep" color. It took a small amount of tweaking to get it to be better (though still not the best). However, after the tweaking he had no more complaints.
The viewing angles aren't an issues for a single-user (as intended), but often times when someone tries to look over to watch a video/gameplay, etc. it's a bit difficult to see. Still, for one person it's relatively fine.
I've used them myself a few times, and I really am happy with the purchase. I'd buy them again if they went back on sale.

SanDisk Extreme 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Got it for a decent price at the time (for a Solid State)
-Quick boot-up/read speed
-All the pro's of a SSD

Cons: -Still expensive
-No bracket/cable. I realize it's not advertised as having them, but they don't mention they don't have it either :-/

Other Thoughts: Even though I got it on sale, SSD's are still expensive. That's the only reason I gave it 4 eggs. Some may argue, but seriously, when a 7200 RPM with 20x the space still costs less than this (or even the same), it's a bit disheartening. Still, placing the OS and some common applications on this seem to make me forget the price when everything loads extremely fast.

Would have been nice if it stated that it's a bare drive only. It's not the reason I took away an egg, but still. Ah well...

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ordered 2 sets of these on separate occasions. These were the first ones I bought, and I couldn't be more satisfied.
They look great, and score a 7.8 in the WEI. Overall, good memory and very reliable.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I kinda wish I bought the 2x8GB sticks, but I bought these at a great price, so I can't complain!
