This review is from: WD My Book Live 3TB Personal Cloud Storage
Pros: Best price/performance single drive NAS around.
SSH is a checkbox away.
Using these everywhere I can. Using rsnapshot to backup to servers off-site.
I get solid 70-80 MB read and 50-60 MB write speeds (big b people look on wikipedia) from the 20 or so I have purchased. This is using windows Vista/7 machines.
They are Quite, consume very little power, and sleep.
Cons: So the 100MB read speeds are not possible in any useful task besides presumably WD's synthetic benchmarks.
Other Thoughts: The 800MHZ cpu in these is the weak point and if it was faster I'm sure the speeds would incre
I have had 1 issue with a NAS that a later firmware flash resolved. So far no RMA's.
This device needs to be stored in a climate controlled room under 85* with high humidity otherwise the device send warning emails and ultimately will shut the nas off until temps return to normal.
Disable all unused services via management interface to speed it up a bit. (twonky, time machine, web access) Twonky being the worst offender.
I think the large majority of owners rating this device down where failure was not the issue appear to be simply inexperienced. 3 MB read speeds sounds like a VERY NICE 2.4GHZ 802.11G wireless network.
If you want good network performance plug in that cat5 or study up on your wireless capabilities.
This review is from: Walbro Universal 255 LPH Fuel Pump GSS342 GSS-342
Pros: Walbro 255 pump. Appears to be genuine based on stamping on the outer hull.
Cons: No pictures, kit comes with bare pump in an unsealed bag. Does not ship with any other components. Seller is slow to update tracking.
Other Thoughts: You will need a specific fuel pump strainer that is 11mm. My application is a blown s10 and the stock pump has about a 15mm strainer. This is by no means a quality newegg experience.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price/performance champion of any 7870 @ $250
Fastest video card bang for the buck around at the time of review 2013/01/03.
Cons: Heat pipes are outside of the atx specification and fit poorly in any case that has tight tolerances. I had to install the card in my bottom pcie slot of my Dell Precision T5500 and using tin ships notch a corner out of the hard drive tray to allow for the pcie auxiliary power connectors. This means I cannot xfire a 2nd card due to how I cannot fit it into
Other Thoughts: The heatsink and fan assembly is a bit cheesy quality wise in my opinion however cooling wise works as expected. I have not attempted overclocking as of yet.
Newegg gives a "free copy of far cry 3" which is untrue in my case and if you read reviews others agree. Will contact newegg to see what is going on.
