ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Served Me Well for 3 and 1/2 Years 09/05/2016

This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: - Worked flawlessly for Three and a Half Years
- Paid for itself (and then some) after the (evil) Time-Warner Cable started charging modem rentals

Cons: - Only lasted Three and a Half Years.

Other Thoughts: When Time Warner Cable found another way to gouge its customers, and started charging us to use the modem it provided, naturally I went out and bought my own. The purposely went shopping for a modem that whose specifications were far more robust that what I needed in hopes of future-proofing a little, as well as obtaining a modem that would hopefully last a long, long time preforming a job well-beneath its capabilities. For 3 and a half years, this (formerly Mototola) SB6141 reliably managed my humble 10mbps-down, 1mbps up Internet service without issue. But last week, we suddenly started experiencing >80% packet loss over the Internet. After doing everything I could to troubleshoot the issue on my side, I reluctantly called TWC service who eventually diagnosed the issue as being my failing SURFboard SB6141.

I have since replaced it with another cable modem, and I am back online.

In the end, I recouped my investment on this modem in rental fees. And for 3 and 1/2 years, my Surfboard SB6141 quiely lived and did its job VERY, VERY well - sitting on a cool, dry, and clean shelf in my basement.

But it only lasted 3 and a half years, which is somewhat surprising/disappointing.

ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No Riplock
Rips Bluray and DVDs beautifully.
Great Price

Cons: No Bluray playback software included, but this was expected... so its not really a con.

Other Thoughts: My sole purpose in buying this drive was to quickly start converting my DVD/Bluray collection to MKVs via Handbrake, before my kids scratched/wrecked them all. Price and performance were the keys, and this drive delivered.

AZIO PRISM KB507 Black USB Keyboard With 7 Colorful Backlights
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs 2nd Review - After RMA 05/28/2014

This review is from: AZIO PRISM KB507 Black USB Keyboard With 7 Colorful Backlights

Pros: Georgeously backlit keyboard.
Looks great in low-light settings
Lots of colors - including GREEN and Gold
Great support from Azio

Cons: 1st keyboard shipped from newegg was DOA
Keyboard difficult to read when backlighting is turned off.

Other Thoughts: This is a follow-up to my previously negative review.

Naturally I was unhappy with receiving a dead keyboard and I was unwilling to pay return shipping to newegg, so I contacted Azio directly. They were very helpful, and provided a pre-paid return shipping label. After a 2 week turn-around, I received a new keyboard that preformed as advertised. Naturally I wasn't happy about receiving a dud in the first place, but Azio made it right. Now that I can see this keyboard in its 100% functional state, I am VERY pleased with it.
