TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Its FAST and Small.

Cons: None as far as I can tell.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this yesterday about 3:00. I got it today about 11:00 plunged it in and instantly several of my net issues disappeared. I read about the dislike of the configuration but if it keeps performing this good I don't care. I hate hunting down bottlenecks and defective devices.
I know 4 hours isn't a real test but it improved things so dramatically over the lynksys 5 port it replaced I needed to review it. To be fair the linksys is 10/100 and 10 years old with about 6 machines all with vpn connections running through it.

Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K3000 HDS723020BLA642 (0f12115) 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: new, shiny, lots of bytes

Cons: Dead on arrival - when plugged in, wherrrrrrrrrr click, click, wherrrrrrrrrr click, click, wherrrrrrrrrr click, click. Not recognized by 2 different computers.

Other Thoughts: I usually just take a doa as random chance but, I read a few reviews and they worried me. Not just doa but short lifespans. I bought 2 of these with rma shipping and with 2X 2tb at stake, this, might be a bad costly mistake.

ASRock P67 EXTREME6 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: nice specs

Cons: board poorly documented and support is worthless. After 5 emails they still couldn't answer what the post codes meant or weather the board was bad. First they referred me to the retailer(new egg) Their paid support gave up. Then after sending me to some tech sites without answering my questions they just said sorry, if it didn't work I should return it. Its too bad they couldn't tell if it was working either. Unfortunately now all the comparable boards are out of stock and Im stuck with a wasted week of RMAs, postage fees, no answers and an overpriced brick.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what happened to my first review But the paid support is a bit pricey for just a couple of questions that should have been easy for the manufacture, but I gave it a try. They did their best but they had the same problem bad documentation. This is important to me because I hate just RMAing things indiscriminately. 4 simple questions could have saved sending back all the components. I build a lot of systems . Several asrock. this will probably be the last one.
