Mediasonic HW180STB HomeWorx HDTV Digital Converter Box with Media Player Function, Dolby Digital and HDMI Out (NewVersion)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good tuner sensitivity on roof antenna. Gets as many 50 mile away stations as our LG TV. Easy to operate with remote.

Records on USB drives.

No external power cord

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Recording quality depends on USB drive. Need to test several drives to find one that gives good quality recordings. Will try a USB Hard Drive next.

Team Color Turn 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Green) Model TG002GE902G

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs 2 out of 3 Team drives failed after little use 10/17/2014

This review is from: Team Color Turn 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Green) Model TG002GE902G

Pros: Cheap, free shipping

Cons: Used as LINUX startup drive, maybe 10 times. Mailed to friend who could not get it to work. Neither did I after getting it back.
Reformatting and reloading the LINUX OS does not make it work. When using for simple file transfer some files cannot be read. Reformatting with HP USB tool, does not help.
Unacceptable for Newegg to sell this Brand.

Other Thoughts: Before buying any USB drive, I recommend to look at the one egg reviews, which basically document the failure rate. For Team this is roughly 30%. The loss of money is small compared with the time and data loss. This was a LINUX startup drive, which I mailed to a non Techie friend, who was disappointed. Out of a dozen USB drives I own , some for more than 10 years, only two TEAM drives have ever failed. Stay away from this brand.

No more team products for me

Rosewill RNX-N250UBE - Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b / 11g / 11n, (2T2R), Up to 300 Mbps Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, Two 5 dBi High Power Detachable Antenna

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Was on sale, free shipping, distinguished look like a football goal. Did not get hot. Includes nice USB extension cable with vertical stand.

Cons: Failed after a 1.5 year of 1-2 hrs per day service.

Other Thoughts: I'm left with 2 Antennas and a nice USB extension and stand.
Still 4 other high powered USB adapters which are similarly used by me and my family have not failed in more than 5 years.
Gives me low confidence in Rosewill quality. Similarly a Rosewill modem failed after 2 years of use, while 5 other modems did not.
