Set of 9 Winter Meteor Snow Shower 6-Function LED Tube Christmas Lights - White
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Meteor lights are cool to look at.

Cons: A hundred and five dollars is an awful lot for some LEDs and some cheap electronics to make them strobe. This is unfortunately a very common practice.

Other Thoughts: Shop around.

5 out of 5 eggs Scored a 7 in Windows Experience 11/20/2012

This review is from: Vocaloid Miku Hatsune Nendoroid Plus Action Figure w/ Leek Pull-Back Car

Pros: I plugged in an external DVD-RW drive and installed Windows 7. It took about half an hour. When it was done, it reported that the windows experience score was 7. Not half bad! Would definitely recommend.

Cons: NewEgg shipping is fast as all get out!

Other Thoughts: You have to keep pulling the car backwards over and over to keep the generator spun up, or it will power down. Using my grotesquely buff arm (the right one ;)) so not that big a deal.

Pros: I don't know how to edit my last review, so here is the amendment: The system was not booting because of the external DVD-ROM drive I had plugged into it. The drive is powered completely via USB (it has two USB plugs for this purpose, so it can draw enough current to run the motor.) For some reason, the machine's circuitry didn't like this (it probably required too many milliamps) and it refused to boot.

I used a USB thumb drive to install Debian and it worked without a hitch. It has been running reliably since then. If I could rescind the last review I would, but there you have it.

Cons: It seemed to have trouble supplying enough current to run a USB-powered DVD drive. I don't know that this is necessarily the board's fault. As soon as I took the DVD drive out of the equation, ALL of the problems went away. DVDs are a pain anyhow and I think I'll use thumb drives from now on.

Other Thoughts: I bought this machine to use as a file server and do some other things. It's on all the time, so efficiency was a concern. If you want to get more efficiency, I recommend getting an Ivy Bridge processor, as they are designed to be more energy efficient, and (if the price/performance is right for you) solid state drives. I have a Core i7-3770K gaming machine with dual GeForce GTX 660s and a SSD, and the system only uses about 36 watts on idle. My last system used 125 watts on idle!
