SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E500B/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: newegg prompt delivery
The SSD worked
Oh yeah. it's faster than a regular mechanical HD
The price is competitive to a degree but other sites were $20 cheaper the day after I bought it

Cons: The performance is comparable to a slug when stacked up against other similar SSDs, Vertical NAND and SATA III are merely promos for Samsung making a cheaper-to-manufacture SSD. Kudos to them saving money and making more profit!
I will do extensive research and pay more for proof that an SSD is faster than previous SSDs in the past. Buzz words mean nothing in reality-based performance. i wish I could share the web site that compared it with others. A big jump in performance? I think not.
Try an SSD performance test utility yourself. I've tried several. Would you have Comcast test your actual download speed? NO!

Other Thoughts: Shame on Samsung. They have a niche in SSD sales but I was foolish to believe the hype from Internet shills that praised this SSD. Shucks, I'm still cautious in believing the reliability of any SSD in the future compared to hard drives. The jury is still out on whether a user can include a page file on an SSD or not or even system restore features. It all depends who's conning you, a shill web site or an actual engineer not employed by the manufacturer. SSD prices are still relatively as high as the promises vendors make. Comments welcome.

APEVIA G-80MM 80mm Fan Grill
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good Value 08/16/2014

This review is from: APEVIA G-80MM 80mm Fan Grill

Pros: Well-made. Nice black coating! Perfect for the two 80 mm holes I drilled in my Mini ITX case's side panel to allow more cooling for my video card with 2 80 mm fans.

Cons: Terrible shipping by DHL and the USPO. Just because shipping is free, why does it take 5 days to go from CA to NM?

Other Thoughts: Newegg still is and always be the BEST. A pity many corporations don't use the same business practices. The customer is still first here!

TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Tsk, tsk. Advertised speeds only possible with decent ISP bandwidth and a better router 08/15/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: Price, I paid more when it first came out and reviews were favorable. I had done research and understood what was necessary to obtain optimal wireless speeds in a 2700 square foot home. The wireless signal from the Asus RTN66U router had to go through a few interior and exterior walls to get to my HTPC on the other side of the house. Wireless speeds have always been 300 Mbps on the less used channel of the router with this adapter so I knew that you need a better router that matches the adapter card as well as guaranteed 15-25 Mbps from your ISP

Cons: Harder to find the interface on newer motherboards nowadays

Other Thoughts: Before complaining, other users should note that the vendor's promised speeds will only present themselves when you have better than average bandwidth offered by your ISP and a dual channel router like mine. Of course, it's up to the user to investigate where bottlenecks are and address them before condemning the wireless card. Knowledge is a beautiful thing.
