  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Automated phone support was very enthusiastic about helping me with my Dryer...

Cons: The drive is dead. Automated phone support is useless. Live phone support is useless. They transferred me around a number of times before giving me a number for the third party that warranties their drives. No one answers this number. Their website is useless. Once you actually figure out how to register the drive (which you have to do before you can request service) there is no way to request service! Their live chat is useless. They just tell you to call their 800 number.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy from Samsung. They don't support their own products!

SunSun Lighting A19 LED Light Bulb / E26 Base / 6.5W / 40W Replace / 450 Lumen / Dimmable / Energy Star / UL / 3000K / Soft White

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I am happy with this light bulb as a replacement for a standard incandescent bulb in my hallway.

I will be replacing all of my incandescent bulbs with these as they die.

Cons: Light is whiter than standard incandescent bulbs, but it is not a bad thing. It is certainly better than most florescent bulbs.

Other Thoughts: When you flip the light switch, it takes a fraction of a second for the bulb to light up. It is just long enough that it is noticeably not instant, but not long enough that it is annoying.

I have only been using this bulb for about a month, but with a six year warranty, I expect to be using them for a long time.

D-Link DIR-855L Wireless N900 Simultaneous Dual-Band Gigabit Router w/ SmartBeam Technology IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I have disabled DHCP and I’m ignoring most of the routing capabilities and I’m using this router as a WiFi access point. The wireless connectivity and range is better than the Apple Airport Extreme that it is replacing.

Devices connected to this router:
• iPhone 5
• Nexus 4
• MacBook Air 2011
• MacBook Air 2012
• HP ProBook
• iPad 4
• Nexus 7
• 2 Xbox 360s
• 3 PS3s
• Dell Desktop
• Custom Desktop
• iPhone 4S
• Dell Inspiron Laptop

They all connect without any problem and do not disconnect until they go beyond this router's great range.

Cons: Even the smallest configuration change requires a minute long reboot. This is kind of annoying, although not a dealbreaker.

There are no LEDs for the ethernet ports to either indicate connectivity or speed.

Other Thoughts: Let me start out by saying that I have Verizon FiOS. The FiOS modem has a built in router. I attempted to turn off all of its routing functionality and pass all traffic through to this D-Link router with little success. The D-Link is not to blame, it is a limitation of the FiOS modem/router. The FiOS router has terribly slow WiFi, so I am using this D-Link router as a WiFi access point.
