NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Seems pretty fast. I'm don't follow all the details and technical specs but this router has no issues with speed for me. It covers my entire 4000 sq. foot house with WiFi and streams flawlessly over 5G to my bedroom Samsung smart TV. I am a pretty basic user from a feature set perspective but I really have no issues with this router. I like the auto firmware download/update feature.

Cons: none really. Maybe its a bit large in size or the antennas are slightly larger.

Other Thoughts: I don't use the USB port drive for file sharing or even the guest wireless network. I'm a pretty basic user. I wired my two primary TVs to hard line Ethernet then just use the wireless for cell phones/personal devices, my work Macbook (5G), and the Samsung smart TV in my bedroom (Netflix). Don't expect to run everyth9ng wireless. If you plan to spend anytime in your home invest in running some Cat 5e cable to your major TVs or entertainment centers - don't expect wireless to support more than 1 TV streaming HQ video well.

HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Micro ATX Tower (4U) Server System Intel Xeon E3-1220V2 3.1GHz 4C/4T 4GB DDR3 No Hard Drive 686232-S01
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: HP quality. cool silver color now.

Cons: Server uses only new GEN8 HP proprietary disks so I can no longer buy WD raptor drives and insert into inexpensive generic drive tray. I hHad to buy HP branded disks for 3 times the cost of the basic ones that I used to be able to just slide into a generic drive carrier so this is no longer an option for a cost effective server. If this concerns you try to find an HP G7 server or buy another brand of server.

Other Thoughts: Great if you don't care what your server costs. Maybe there is some advanced functionality that rich enterprises may want in these new more advanced drive (same drive but with some new firmware and drive carrier) but for the lower end SMB I can't imagine anyone would want this feature. as of today (Oct 2013) you can find generic drive sleds that have some electronics in them but I'm not sure if they work with regular SATA drives and they are about 3x-4x the cost of the G7 drive trays each. Thumbs down for greedy HP gouging SMB customers.

Logitech 920-000969 G19 Keyboard with Color Display
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs not very good 09/25/2013

This review is from: Logitech 920-000969 G19 Keyboard with Color Display

Pros: 2 handy USB 2.0 port on the rear of the keyboard. Looks cool. Can change color of backlit keys.

Cons: I have owned this keyboard for well over a year and have really tried to like it. First of all the tactile feel of it just doesn't seem to work for me. To me the keys feel just a little too hard to engage and require a heavier touch that I like so I feel I make more typos. My other laptop is a Macbook Pro retina and I prefer that feel much better. The LCD is cool but well over a year ago (2 years ago?) I when Logitech released a major update to the driver/LCD software - it rendered the LCD nearly worthless. I feel it stopped working with most of my games in terms of showing useful game info, Also it seems to reste to a useless default profile all the time on reboot rather than something useful like the clock. Would be nice if it remembered its last setting. Overall a waste of money in my opinion. Spend your $ on a high quality keyboard that works well and skip the LCD gimmick.

Other Thoughts: I was very happy with the older G15 version of logitech's game keyboard and was bummed out when it finally wore out and broke. Right away the tactile feel on this felt cheaper than the G15 - harder to press keys just by a little but I hoped it would break in and be better. You are better off buying a good keyboard for typing and passing on the gimmickry of the LCD which really doesn't even work well with the upgraded software.
