HP Desktop PC DC7900 Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz 3.0 GHz 2GB 160 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This arrived with a disk that lets you install either Windows 7 Professional 32-bit or 64-bit. I purchased 4 GB of additional (used) memory for each computer, swapped out the 160GB SATA HDD for a 500GB Black WD hard drive, swapped out the DVD-ROM drives with CD/DVD-RW drives, and lastly added low profile USB3 PCie-x1 cards. These computers made great gifts for a couple of friends.

Cons: None, I only wish I purchased more than 2. Excellent price and fast Newegg Service.

Other Thoughts: With a WDC hard drive, I was able to download the free WDC Acronis backup software which is an excellent product. As long as you have a WDC hard drive or even an external USB WDC drive, you can use the free WDC Acronis backup software. I also plugged a 6-foot USB3 cable into the USB3 port on the back up the computer and wrapped it around the computer so that it's available from the front.

Winegard LNA-200 Boost XT Digital HDTV Preamplifier

5 out of 5 eggs If you need one, this is the one 02/11/2015

This review is from: Winegard LNA-200 Boost XT Digital HDTV Preamplifier

Pros: We live just under 30 miles from TV towers in our area. We use this LNA with an Indoor/Outdoor Clearstream 2V antenna that is sitting on a table inside the house. Our distribution system has a 1-to-8 distribution amp and from 20-50 feet of RG6 cable with additional 1-to-4 distribution amps in 4 rooms. To drive this kind of an in-house network, a pre-amp was needed and this had the best specs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Kudos to the technical rep for the antenna that we have and his suggestion use their companies Juice amp or the Winegard LNA 200. The Winegard 200 runs about $30 less and has better specs so we went with it.

Seagate 500GB SATA DVR Expander STAP500403
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs 3/4 of a GoFlex drive in disguise 01/31/2014

This review is from: Seagate 500GB SATA DVR Expander STAP500403

Pros: Purchased to use as an external drive

Cons: The listing is somewhat misleading. It does not come with any interface cable at all, just a SATA connection that is deeply recessed. Upon further examination the pictures show you exactly what you get. It would have been useful to see the underside of the device in a picture that would have clearly labeled this device as a GoFlex drive.

Other Thoughts: The back of the drive is labeled with a sticker that refers to the item as a GoFlex DVR drive. In order to make it useful you have to purchase an "Upgrade Cable -- USB 3.0/2.0" for an additional $19.99 (Model Number STAE104) through the Seagate website. The cable is out of stock at Newegg.

Fortunately for me, I had purchased the cable to upgrade another GoFlex drive from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 and kept the old cable around.

The device was not formatted for Windows, rather some kind of proprietary format for use with a DVR. It was easy enough to reformat the device in Windows.

For another five dollars you're better off getting a 1 TB external drive, but if you had the interface laying around then getting a 500 GB drive for the sale price was a bargain.
