Silicon Power 128GB Elite microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 75MB/s (SP128GBSTXBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Hello. My name is Chris. I am technically inclined, but I like to take the approach of a person reading reviews that doesn’t understand all the “geek speak” and make it understandable for the person who doesn’t have the time or patience to study up on that kind of stuff. I don’t explain ‘benchmarks’, I explain what the item did/does for me plain and simple. If that’s like you, then this review should be very helpful to you.
.
Comes pre-formatted.
.
Lifetime Warranty (good as gold)
.
MOST people are going to buy on 'price' alone. BUT check this out... who ever installed a AAA pc game like say... Dying Light? LOL. I DID! (See Other Thoughts).
.
There is not a SINGLE smart phone or tablet that could EVER push this card to a limit or cause any hang-ups. If so, it will be YOUR phone that is causing the lag.
.
Played Dying Light (PC Version) from this card. See Other Thoughts for a link to the video.

Cons: ONLY mentions 'Read' speeds (how fast your computer can access data) but no listing for 'Write' speeds (How fast you can add data to this device).
.
Supposedly Read Speeds of up to 75MB/s. See at the end of the Dying Light video for benchmarks (it didn't quite make 75MB/s (See Other Thoughts)).

Other Thoughts: I tested on a USB 2.0 slot using all 6 cores of my CPU (or whatever was needed to perform functions) [RESULT 1 - at the end of the Dying Light video] and then I tested (for curiosity's sake) In a USB 3.0 slot but this time set my Affinity on my benchmarking tool to be dedicated to only ONE CPU core (#6), considering this is what the majority of the market uses (Dual core CPU's) and one dedicated core should do a little better justice (the USB 3.0 slot was nothing more than for me to test the adapter I was using) for [RESULT 2 - at the end of the Dying Light video].
.
The benchmarking tools was: ATTO Disk Benchmark v2.47. It has been very reliable for showing true read/write speeds for MANY tests I have used it for. You can cash those numbers in for Gold.
.
There is an initial 116GB available, but this is expected with the 'overhead' required to find instruction of the format type layout and cost to run this device.
.
If you would like to see the video of Dying Light from the Silicon Power 128GB Elite microSDXC, just search YouTube for " Newegg Review: Dying Light played from a Silicon Power 128GB Elite microSDXC card " to see it on my L45V3G45 channel. There are benchmarks for the device at the end of the video. NOTE: I just used a generic mini SD card to USB adapter for testing.
.
I would like to personally thank the Newegg EggXpert Team for dealing and handling my major delivery mess up situation. To no fault to Newegg I was finally able to test the Silicon Power 128GB Elite microSDXC. I am looking forward to testing this in my Honor 5x you sent me just a while back. COOL!!!
.
Just because this is a review, please don’t take my words lightly and think I just favor a product because it is sent to me. I have a job to do; and that’s to be fair and honest about the product for future prospective buyers. I am just like you, a Newegg customer. And to me, Newegg reviews are golden. So I am not about to tarnish Newegg reviews OR my good name by telling you something is good when it is not. I hope this review has satisfied your purchasing inquiry needs. Thank you for reading. And thank you Newegg for allowing me another great opportunity to review.

ESET Multi-Device Security - 5 PCs + 5 Android Devices

5 out of 5 eggs USE 'EM ALL!!! 07/21/2016

This review is from: ESET Multi-Device Security - 5 PCs + 5 Android Devices

Pros: ESET Smart Security... what ELSE needs to be said? It's the best in the world.

Cons: ONE serial number in this package! (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: USER BE WARNED: If you use only 4 PC licenses and 3 mobiles for example, the remaining licenses will be wasted because this kit comes with ONLY one license.
Which MEANS, once the serial number has been activated, there is only one year till it expires from the date the FIRST license is activated.
If ESET would have included 10 licenses vs 1, you could utilize this kit at will. I learned the hard way after buying 2 individual kits for a single PC (@2 for $25) I was hoping to have some more for next year and activate 2 mobiles for a couple of years. My email to ESET support proved otherwise. Still, I have 5 PC's and 5 Mobiles for next year to use (YES you can keep this kit for however long before activated, but once activated (as stated) you will begin your one year license).
I am NOT talking bad about the product itself, just letting you all know that there is NO assumption of gaining 5+5 licenses in this kit to execute at will per device.
THANK you ESET for maintaining the BEST security on the planet. And THANK YOU Newegg for offering (once again) a product worthy of the Newegg's standards.

ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

.
The range is powerful enough with no dead spots for any normal size house and any type apartment.
.
Several tests have proven the reliability of stability and consistent and constant speeds and connections with this router. A+ in this department.
.
Small footprint that is easily hidden under a desk with adequate cooling available; which by the way never even got hot to the touch in this 112 degree Las Vegas heat.
.
Asus AirCloud. It is nice to have extra storage available. And the syncing of many devices make this little gem handy.
.
Literally "Plug and Play" so to speak. Hook everything up and you're on. Expect nothing less from Asus, the leaders in user friendly, powerful, quality products tested and used as a USER and not just some white-board device without a single care to functionality. Asus has ALWAYS ruled in this area.
.

Cons: Price, price, price.
.
Trend Micro. I use NOTHING but ESET Security Suite on all of my devices, so this as an "added feature" doesn't do a single thing for me but to figure out how to rid my new router of it.
.

Other Thoughts: The price is a tall order, but this is for the serious gamer/device user or business type home office users that want steady heavy power and connections. The average 1 or 2 person household with 3-4 devices may not need this device
