ADATA Premier SP550 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: None so far

Cons: Can not install the software that comes with it to clone my hard drive to this SSD. It is simply not worth the hassle having to deal with all the complexity and errors encountered in trying to get this SSD operating.

Other Thoughts: This SSD supposedly comes with software to clone your existing hard drive to the SSD. I have encountered issue after issue in trying to obtain and install the software. I finally gave up. I will not purchase another ADATA product again. These people can't even get the simplest of tasks completed to enable successful use of their product. The difficulty I encountered with the software: Upon registration of the product, ADATA provides a 16 character code that supposedly enables you to install the software. Download of the software was cumbersome. It is a massive file that takes 15 to 20 minutes to download. Once downloaded, it is very confusing as to which file to run to install the software. Finally, on attempted installation, it asks for a 64 character code. The 16 character code offered by the company does not work. Then, I selected to install the trial version of the software instead. However, when doing that, I encountered an error message of code "2860" that prevents installation. Next, I tried contacting support. Their webpage was overly complex and lengthy, just to email them. After pounding out my issue on screen, I tried to submit. It would not allow submission. The indication I got was that I failed to select my "county". The selection is a drop down box. The box is empty and presents no selection alternatives. So, it is impossible to select county and therefore impossible to submit. Therefore it is impossible to contact support. At this point, after spending well over an hour of my time, I simply gave up. Honestly, who wants to own a product from a company that can't get the basics right? I should have known that these issues were going to happen. I was able to successfully see the Manual for the software. It is 150 pages of complexity and jargon, poorly written, and a miserable read. This company is a disaster. I would encourage you to look elsewhere for an SSD product.

15 FT BLACK CAT5e CAT5 RJ45 ETHERNET LAN NETWORK CABLE
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 06/22/2016

This review is from: 15 FT BLACK CAT5e CAT5 RJ45 ETHERNET LAN NETWORK CABLE

Pros: It transmits data to and from computer and router.

Cons: Connector tab broke on first use. Sheathing is a VERY THIN, cheap, plastic.

Other Thoughts: I was reluctant to order this given that it was so inexpensive, and it was from China. I just got one, to test. I won't be buying any more. I am simply tired of buying stuff from China that doesn't work, or stops functioning within a short period of purchase. It appears that this product fits that typical China mold. The connector tab broke on first use, inserting the cable end into the networking slot of my computer. Cable started periodically slipping out of the slot. I threw this cable away and will re-order a higher quality cable.

BenQ HT2050 Full HD 1920 x 1080, 2200 ANSI Lumens, Dual HDMI / MHL inputs, Lens Shift, 6x RGBRGB Color wheel, Optional Wireless HDMI Connectivity, 10W Speakers, 3D Ready, Whisper Quiet operation, DLP
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: NONE

Cons: o Unit initially would not remain on for more than 5 minutes, overheating triggers a shutdown.
o After allowing it to cool down, repeated attempts were not successful, to the point that shutdown now happens within a minute or two of startup.
o There appear to be 3 fans. All seem operational. This is a very noisy unit however.
o Air vents were not blocked and room temp was normal 70 degrees.
o Could only conclude unit was defective.
o Existing wiring in place is composite. Do not know if that is what causes the overheating problem. Not practical or easy to run HDMI.
o BenQ HT2050 was intended replacement for a 15 year old Toshiba TDP-MT500.
o BenQ noise level appreciably higher and picture quality not an improvement over 15 year old Toshiba. Major disappointments on both fronts.
o Unit is poorly designed, poorly engineered.
o Lens cap will not seat properly.
o Feet on the bottom of the unit make bracket installation tricky and cumbersome.
o When ceiling mounted, engineers did not allot for the lens cap to be stored without the retaining string easily getting in the way of the lens.
o Bolts needed to secure the unit to a universal bracket are not standard size, so a trip to a hardware store is necessary.
o Overall, a miserable experience, wasted weekend.
o ITEM IS REPLACEMENT ONLY, NO REFUND. I have asked NewEgg for a replacement unit.
o However, this was the first, and it will be the very last, BenQ product I buy. A major disappointment.

Other Thoughts: I can only say that I am perplexed as to why the unit will not operate. I worked with it for many hours, trying to examine every possibility. This thing simply must be a defective unit. And, the no refund policy makes me wonder if overheating is a common problem occurring with these units.

I should point out too, this unit seems to be getting rave reviews. Again, very perplexing given the overheating issue, loud fans, not so hot picture quality. However, I am forced to use composite wiring. Maybe a significantly better experience is available via HDMI? It makes me wonder though if the reviews I'm seeing around the internet are not bought and paid for by BenQ? So, tread carefully if you are thinking about buying this unit.

I will circle back around and update my review after my return and replacement experience and hopeful operational use of the unit at some point.
