Shark NV356E Navigator Lift-Away Professional White
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs performance machine 12/24/2013

This review is from: Shark NV356E Navigator Lift-Away Professional White

Pros: suction
hasn't plugged up

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Been using this vacuum for about 2 years now and I'm still impressed with it. We bought it for about $200 but it is now common to find it for 25% less than that. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone that wants an upright. I have used other way more expensive vacuums and this has beet them all especially considering the price. Never have tried a Dyson though and I hear great things about them after this vacuum I just can't see why someone would need to spend 2x to 3x for something that may or may not be marginally better.

Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable as a mechanical HDD can get.
In my experience a segate or non-'black' WD drive is 4 times more likely to fail.

Cons: Pay a premium over other drives and they are mechanical.

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 993995
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Look nice
Responsive customer service
Quick RMA process
Price (got a great price, >95 per set)

Cons: Lots of errors
Warranty is not transferable according to customer service

Other Thoughts: I build about 4-12 desktops per year, once or twice a year one of the new systems develops a problem, typically it turns out to be RAM if it isn't the customers fault (malware issues). I purchased this RAM for myself and had problems straight away, (thankfully my customers haven had to deal with these problems). I'm usually too busy to deal with the BSODs so I just ignore them 'till I have time to deal with them, it must have been 2 months after I built the system that I got around to testing the memory but I didn't have time to test the sticks individually, I knew from the memtest that at least the stick in A1 was bad so I did the RMA for the first 4 sticks. The replacements performed much better but I was still getting a BSOD about once a week. I've had some additional time over the last week so I've been testing the RAM stick by stick and every other stick is bad. Keep in mind this is AFTER an RMA already. I don't normally write these reviews unless I'm impressed or upset, today I'm upset. This should be a rare occurrence not a 50% chance on each stick which is what it is turning out to be. In fact at this rate, my chances of getting a set of 4 properly working dimms is about 12/100. I'll be asking for a refund on this purchase from Mushkin if I can and I'll be avoiding them for future memory purchases.
