Pros: Looks well built. Speedy Newegg shipping. Good price on this week's sale.
Cons: Too Long! The bulb is probably 3/8 inch longer than a standard MR16 bulb and did NOT fit in the outdoor 12-volt landscape lighting housing I intended to try it out in. Plugs in the socket fine but the extra length prevents putting the glass lens and ring back on the fixture to make it weatherproof.
Other Thoughts: I was really excited to find what would have been a great energy efficiency improvement for the total of 7 bulbs I run adding up to 200 watts. I was all set to buy another 6 bulbs if this one looked good and that would have taken me down to 28 watts and provided a pretty quick payback on my electricity savings as these lights run all night on a flagpole and trees. Guess I'll keep looking and pay attention to the dimensions (which were not listed for this bulb) next time. Just trying to be green.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast - great upgrade for an older PC.
Other Thoughts: This is my second SSH drive. I have been so pleased with this drive in an older Asus notebook that I upgraded my wife's desktop system (which had a few year old 3.5" 500 GB drive) with another SSH drive. Bought a SilverStone bay converter from NewEgg to fit in this drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast Fast Fast and quiet. Much cheaper than an SSD.
Other Thoughts: I have been running this drive in an Asus notebook for over 6 months and have had zero problems. The drive makes this older notebook boot and launch applications faster than my desktop system. This drive overall performs about 2 to 3 times faster than the 7200 RPM 500 GB drive it replaced. Highly recommended!READ FULL REVIEW
