ASUS USB-BT211 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Bad enough to make me write this 12/31/2014

This review is from: ASUS USB-BT211 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle

Pros: Worked sometimes. Seamless software integration with Windows 7. Recognized and successfully paired with my devices.

Cons: I usually never write reviews, but for this little gem, I've made an exception.

Randomly causes BSOD. Yeah, random--as in hard to troubleshoot, like faulty RAM. I'd be using the computer for a while and suddenly the computer hangs, goes to blue screen with a bunch fatal error messages, and hard-resets. What eventually gave it away was the fact that right before the blue screen I sometimes heard the "doo-duh" sound that Windows makes when a USB device is disconnected, and realized that it only happened when I was typing (BT keyboard).

Other Thoughts: My PC is perfectly stable and error free now--WITHOUT this piece of garbage plugged into it.

This it the third and final USB Bluetooth dongle I'll ever try.
If you want reliable bluetooth in Windows, buy a motherboard with bluetooth built in!

2pcs T20 7440 7443 Xenon White 13SMD 5050 10W Led Car Reverse Light Turn Signal Bulb
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Might be bright for certain housings. Has ample side-lighting.

Cons: Cheap plastic junk. Plastic lenses fell off and got stuck in my taillight housings. Spent hours trying to fish them out.

Other Thoughts: Replaced with much brighter Cree XBD lamps with METAL housing and real GLASS lenses that are secured with a METAL ring.

Samsung  BDJM59 Smart 3D Blu-Ray Player with Wi-Fi

2 out of 5 eggs Broke after 95 days... 12/31/2014

This review is from: Samsung BDJM59 Smart 3D Blu-Ray Player with Wi-Fi

Pros: Got a good deal for it.
Sister model to the well-liked BD-F5900.
Smart Hub (newer models in this price bracket apparently don't have it anymore).
Good remote.
Good image quality.
Dual-core processor was good for apps.

Cons: Broke right after refurbished warranty expired. No longer reads any Bluray discs. Upgraded to latest firmware, no dice. Only DVD seems to work now.

Other Thoughts: I've had good luck with refub laptops and A/V Receivers and things before. Thought I'd get away with saving some money on a refurbished BD player. But with mechanical things like this that entail physical spinning and laser head calibration, etc., you're better off getting a brand new one with a full warranty. What a waste of money!
