Cons: none

Other Thoughts: When Newegg contacted me to review this memory I thought What can you say about laptop memory? Then I thought it would be great to update my laptop to 16gb so I said I would do it. After sending the email late one night the memory arrived 3 days later and was installed a few minutes later. I was very surprised to find my laptop recognized all 16gb of it, it was an older laptop and expected only 8gb to be seen. After running a few tests to verify all 16gb was indeed seen by the system I ran a few burn in tests. After 36 hours I found it to pass without problems. What can I say about this memory? Not a whole lot, it worked like it was supposed to. So I opened up winuae and ran my Amiga ppc emulator and was pleasantly surprised at how smooth it now ran with all that extra ram. I had VMware installed but never used it because it was just too slow before so I gave it a try and what can I say but wow! its useable now. screen refresh and programs ran at a good speed. Very happy with it. other then these two programs I don't see any change in the laptop. I suppose most any other program that can take advantage of all that extra ram will love the upgrade. so if your just using your laptop for Facebook, internet or word programs you don't need this but if you are using memory intense programs you will be happy with the upgrade and it is worth the money

Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem

5 out of 5 eggs Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem 08/14/2016

This review is from: Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem

Pros: When I was asked to review this modem I first checked it out online. There where no other reviews so I checked out the specs. I saw that it was only a cable modem with no wifi. My cable modem I was using had wifi but I was using seperate wifi router, so I thought why bother? Then I saw 24x8 and DOCSIS 3.0. When I checked that out I found that this modem has basicly 24 download streams or channels and 8 upload and thought wow, maybe it could be usefull in quieting complaints from the family when I'm downloading big files like windows 10, 4gb, and driverpack solution, 11gb, so I took the assignment. When it arrived, which was very quickly like anything from Newegg.com I checked out the construction first and was impressed with the ventilation design. It was completely vented on both of the large surface areas. My last modem was also vented but had a problem of running very hot so I installed a fan to keep it cool.
This was the easiest modem I have ever installed. Plug in the cables wait a few minutes for the modem to boot up and tried to get online with my tablet. It took me to a TWC website, asked a few questions and I was online. That's it, so simple, no call to some TWC IT guy no disconnecting and rebooting just a few simple questions and online.
Now for the test. After I installed it I waited for my wife to get online with her tablet, she is the one that complains the most, and started downloading an 11GB file. I said to her "the internet is really slow today" like she says to me whenever I'm dowloading something. She told me hers is fine, thats a switch. Wow, those extra streams really make a difference. I then tried streaming movies on 5 different devices, 1 desktop, 1 android tv box, 1 tablet, an ipad, and my smart tv. I've only been able to play on 3 devices before the video got too slow with my old modem. To my amazement all 5 played without problems!
Only 2 more things to checkout. one was heat buildup and other was reliability. Reliability will come with time so I can't tell you much more then it is working great at the moment. Heat on the other hand I can tell you about, When the unit is not being used you can feel a slight warmth on one side but very little. When its under full load it does warm up over time but not very much. I will not be installing a fan on this modem like my last one.
Over all I am impressed with this cable modem even without wifi. Now that I think about it, it is better to seperate your modem and your wifi anyway just for easy upgrades of each as needed but having a backup wifi in your modem incase of router failure would be nice.

Cons: No wifi

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice cable modem and I think you will be very happy with it.
Tested with TWC
