1 out of 5 eggs Great product but NewEgg Lies about $10.00 gift card 11/13/2011

This review is from: KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Stand Mixer with Pouring Shield, 5 Quarts, Empire Red

Pros: This mixer is great! Don't let the one egg review deter you from buying this mixer. I would, however, recommend buying this elsewhere.

You can't beat the price at NewEgg, but they never send the code for the $10 promotional gift card. Only the $10 gift card and free shipping made the difference worth purchasing from NewEgg.

Cons: NewEgg lies about gift card. I've contacted them through this website and called them on the phone a week later. I received no response from my web form entry. The person on the phone said that they were re-sending the code. It never arrived.

Other Thoughts: I've been a NewEgg customer for many years. I've usually received nothing but the best service from them. I find it strange that they would decide to lose a customer over a silly $10 coupon.

Perhaps it's now management or something. Regardless, I'll shop elsewhere from now on.

AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb Quad-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM3 95W HDX925WFGIBOX Processor

Pros: Bought to upgrade my Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ based system.

Simple upgrade: Updated the bios to F7d (according the the Gigabyte website F6 will also recognize this CPU), dropped the CPU in, and rebooted. After a few loud beeps from the motherboard the system booted right up. Runs very cool with stock fan and heat sink. This is a bargain upgrade! I'm quite pleased with the increased performance of this 2 year old system. Upgradability ...that's what I love about AMD! More bang for my buck! However, the Intel Core i7 does rock! If I were building a new system, I would probably have gone with the Core i7 920, but, cost-wise, this upgrade makes my system fast enough to keep up with any of the modern games and applications that are out now. In a year or less, I'll be in the market for another "best bang the buck" system.`

Average Processor CPUIDMark benchmark went from 17774 to 59124.

Cons: None really. It does take 30 watts more than my previous 4200+ but that was to be expected going from a dual-core to a quad-core processor that's running 600 Mhz faster with twice as much L2 cache and the additional 6MB of L3 cache.

Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom II X4 925
