Kroo Black Soft Neoprene Washable Messenger Shoulder Bag Case Cover Sleeve for 10
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A perfect fit for the Acer Chromebook C710, it comes with an outside pocket and is as well made as any other neoprene case.

Cons: I was hoping it might be a little thicker. As it is, it doesn't offer much protection. The pocket is just barely big enough for the wall wart the C710 came with - it may not hold a larger power supply.

Other Thoughts: There was a piece of foam inside for shipping and it turns out that if you leave it there it offers a good amount of stiffness and protection for the computer. I paid about 1/2 the price of any other case for this one and it was a deal that I'd do again in a second. Cases that are specifically designed for 11.6" Chromebooks are rare - especially ones with an outside pocket for the power supply.

RiDATA 700MB 52X CD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model R80JS52-NOB100N
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: RiData does make good discs

Cons: These discs arrive WITHOUT A SPINDLE!! Despite the description that says "Spindle Disc", there is no spindle to hold them together. In shipping the plastic shrink around them broke and the discs were scattered through the box. Several of them appear scratched beyond use.

In retrospect I see the photograph doesn't show a spindle, but it never occurred to me that they'd end up shipping loose in the box. I'm disappointed in Newegg for not making this clear.

Other Thoughts: If Newegg mentioned in the description that these were simply bulk CDs and not packaged in a spindle instead of putting the word "spindle" in the description, I would have ordered something else instead.

SANS DIGITAL MobileSTOR MS2UT+B Big (Spanning), Safe (RAID1), Fast (RAID 0), JBOD, SAFE33, & SAFE50 2 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy connection
No OS jiggering
Fast enough
Feature set seems well thought out

Cons: Slow writing times
Setup is a little nonobvious

Other Thoughts: I've had two of these for just over a year. Just after the year (& warranty) was up, one of them displayed a message which I found on the internet meant a board failure. I contacted Sans Digital via email and they confirmed that it was probably a board problem. They asked that I send it in and they'd honor the warranty even though it was technically out of warranty (assuming of course, that it wasn't abused, etc). I did that and in a short time a repaired unit arrived which is working fine.

This thing isn't a screamer. It reads fast enough to supply DVD-quality video though. The write times are understandably slower. I run these in RAID 1 mode (mirroring) with two 1TB server drives and I have no complaints with performance. One is connected via eSATA to an XP machine and the other to a QNAP server via USB.

The product works well for the price and unlike some of the reviews here, I've nothing but good experience with their customer service. I'll recommend the product and company.
