This review is from: LG-Nortel ES-1008 Fast Ethernet Switch
Pros: Forget those other guys. Newegg just gave me 8 Ports for $10, free shipping and received it overnight (I live in LA area), just plugged it in and it works - Who can beat that?
Other Thoughts: If and when this switch stops working I will update this review. So since I haven't updated it yet, you can be confident it is still working!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When you get a board that works, it seems to work well.
Cons: I had to have the first motherboard replaced because the onboard CPU video stopped working after about an hour – no biggie it happens. But the reason for my low rating is the disappointing THREE WEEK experience I had with Biostar’s technical and customer service.
The first week was spent working with technical support through email (1 and only 1 per day) to convince them there was a problem. The second week was waiting to hear from them after I overnighted the board to them (at my expense). I finally had to call them to find out that they had confirmed the problem and would ship out a replacement. The 3rd week was waiting for the replacement that finally arrived with overnight shipping. When it arrived there was no note, no apology, and no refund of my shipping costs.
Other Thoughts: Over the course of these three weeks not one person ever demonstrated the slightest sympathy, sense of urgency, or initiative to resolve the problem.
Since I interacted with several different people, I believe this to more of a company culture problem than a randomly bad service rep. For these reasons, I have already decided to replace this board because I cannot take the chance that it will fail in the future and it will take another 3 weeks to get a replacement.
This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 W0379RU 500W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply
Pros: I bought this PS specifically because I wanted an inexpensive quiet PS and this is just what the doctor ordered.
Cons: Like a previous reviewer noted, there are too many cables and they clutter my small case.
Other Thoughts: If you are trying to minimize the noise of your PC this is a very good PS to have. I have a Thermaltake PurePower 500 in my other PC and it is super quiet as well. I wasn't sure this budget model would be as quiet, but it is.READ FULL REVIEW
