Pros: Installed in an AMD A6-4400M based laptop easily, auto-configured, no problems. The system feels a bit snappier, but it's so bogged down by the slow HDD that it's hard to tell.
Cons: DRAM has gotten expensive since the China fire.
Other Thoughts: These replaced a single DDR3-1333 SODIMM with these two DDR3L-1600 SODIMMS. This brought the system from a single-channel 1333 configuration to dual-channel 1600.
Windows Experience Index jumped the RAM from 5.9 to 7.2, Graphics jumped from 5.7 to 6.6. Gaming graphics got a modest bump from 6.5 to 6.6. Processor and HDD stayed the same at 5.5 and 5.9, respectively.
This review is from: Foreverlamp A55 6W Omnidirectional A19 LED Light Bulb, Warm White
Pros: Near instant on, zero warm-up period, and close enough to color and lumens that you need to put them side by side incandescent bulbs to tell the difference.
Cons: Still really expensive compared to regular bulbs. As a renter, I don't want to invest a couple hundred dollars in bulbs for the house over the next year or two for the 25 year benefit of the property owner.
Other Thoughts: I put two into a four-bulb bathroom vanity fixture that obscures the bulbs for direct comparison. These light up after the incandescent pair after a slight (1/10 second?) delay. It's just long enough to notice when installed alongside regular incandescent bulbs, but not nearly long enough to make you flip the switch a second time. They seem slightly cooler (maybe 100K), and slightly brighter (less than 10%, so not even 45W equivalent) when compared head to head. After a couple days, I stopped noticing.
The long lifespan of these bulbs assumes the electronics are not burned out by a power surge from lightning strikes or dirty power.
This review is from: NETGEAR 5 Port Gigabit High Performance Desktop Switch (GS605)
Pros: I use this for connections between several systems at home including a file server. In five years of continuous use, I've yet to have a problem with it.
During file transfers, I've sustained >80MB/s with this switch. I'm not sure if I hit the limit of the switch or the systems transferring the files.
Cons: Odd shape makes stacking it difficult.READ FULL REVIEW
