Patriot PS-100 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It was a reasonably priced SSD, and a good value. Although SSD technology has surpassed this model, it can still be useful. For example it makes a great ReadyBoost drive.

Cons: It "bricked" after a short period of use. I set it aside for a while (my own choice), and when I came back to it much later I was able to restore function by a firmware update.

Other Thoughts: I'm a long-time IT pro, not some kid who can 5-star himself. My expertise, tools and spare hardware made it easier for me to dismiss the drive as bad in the first place, and get it back later on.

Unfortunately this SSD had a firmware flaw that later versions cured. If you paid top dollar for one of these, and think it's a lost cause, think about putting it back into service. The flash update is something that anyone who can burn a file to CD and follow instructions can do.

CyberPower TRVL918 3 Outlets 918 j Surge Suppressor
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Fine For Home or Travel 06/18/2012

This review is from: CyberPower TRVL918 3 Outlets 918 j Surge Suppressor

Pros: Fold-away 3-prong plug, EMI/RF shielding, allows access to other duplex outlet, great ergonomics.

Cons: High MOV clamping voltage (800V), EMI/RF shielding not as good as inline choke filtering, raised USB power socket section a problem with wall warts.

Other Thoughts: I haven't found a better compact portable on-wall outlet multiplier/USB charger yet. With the prongs stowed, it fits nicely in a backpack, and endures rough handling. The outlet layout allows a new style 90 degree wall wart to hang down from the bottom outlet while allowing full access to the other two sockets.

On the road it's ideal to power my laptop and charge my PMP that works better with its own AC adapter, with an outlet free for another AC powered device. In hotels where every wall socket is used, that extra device might be my bedside light!

At home I use it to keep my phone and spare battery charged using the USB ports, and use an AC socket for my bedside light and the occasional other AC powered device. Since most of my wall outlets at home (and in some hotels) are wall-switched on top, and always on on the bottom, it's nice to be able to use this on the always-on circuit, and still be able to plug in a wall-switched light.

HP LaserJet CP1518ni CC378A Personal Up to 12 ppm 600 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Laser Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great quality.

Each toner color can be replaced separately.

Ethernet.

Linux drivers.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my venerable HP LaserJet 6P. I wanted to be able to print in color, and didn't want the hassle and long-term expense of an ink printer. I also wanted network printing. This model filled all of those needs.

I don't do much printing, and can wait for the occasional hard copy. PPM isn't a big issue for me. As long as this printer is able to sit around for days or weeks, and be able to print out a few pages now and then, that's a winner for me. So far, so good.
