APEX DM-318 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center / Slim HTPC Computer Case w/ ATX12V TFX 275W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Had this for 4 years now and its still great! 08/23/2016

This review is from: APEX DM-318 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center / Slim HTPC Computer Case w/ ATX12V TFX 275W Power Supply

Pros: Looks like it belongs in an entertainment center.
Case is easy to work with inside.
Drive caddy is very easy to take out.
Power supply lasts.
Hides drives behind a cover and the buttons don't break!

Cons: Has no 2.5" for a SSD, but there are so many convertors it doesn't matter.
Stock fan is a bit loud (so add $10 for quiet 80mm)

Other Thoughts: Here in 2016 its hard to get a good low profile video card, especially one that will really do 4K.

Sensi UP500W Wi-Fi Programmable Digital Thermostat for Smart Home
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Had it a few weeks now and it works great 07/19/2016

This review is from: Sensi UP500W Wi-Fi Programmable Digital Thermostat for Smart Home

Pros: Easy to use, not too difficult to setup.
Works with Alexa (Echo).
Phone app responds quickly and via the web (meaning I can adjust the temp when I am not home).
Displays humidity level
Doesn't require a 12v/120v line for "power" like most other smart thermostats. Runs entirely from the batteries.
Incredibly fast response!
Has many power saving modes and even cycle "patterns" to help your AC not come on so often, or to prevent those times that it comes on for just 1 minute or so.

Cons: No real way (that I can tell atleast) to set the system to maintain a specific humidity level.
Cannot find out what temp the thermostat is set to via Alexa (not really a fault of the unit itself).

Other Thoughts: Installation was easy, construction feels decent.

D-Link DIR-860L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router A1 Version
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Redoing my Previous Review, Worst Router 08/07/2015

This review is from: D-Link DIR-860L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router A1 Version

Pros: Was good while it worked, Price was low

Cons: Mostly broken now.
Had 2 lan ports on the router die on me yesterday.
Additionally the router has started to drop the internet connection periodically.
Meaning that I cannot maintain a stable connection anymore.
I drop from IRC, Skype and Teamviewer aswell as my Cloud music players disconnect on a regular basis.

Other Thoughts: This router had mixed reviews online. I decided to give it a go as I had good experiences with older D-Link products.
This one is not good.
I should have heeded the bad reviews.
