D-Link DFE-530TX+ Fast Ethernet Adapter 10/ 100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent SOHO net card 07/09/2008

This review is from: D-Link DFE-530TX+ Fast Ethernet Adapter 10/ 100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: I have 4 of these cards, ranging from 2-5 years old. None have ever missed a beat...probably the most reliable computer part I've ever invested in!

Cons: They're not gigabit, and they require cables...

Other Thoughts: If you're doing large data transfers or running heavy LAN parties you should be using a full gigabit network...otherwise on a bang-for-buck basis you can't do any better than the 530TX+

AMD Duron 1.6 Applebred Single-Core 1.6 GHz Socket A DHD1600DLV1C Processor

5 out of 5 eggs good bang for buck 12/02/2006

This review is from: AMD Duron 1.6 Applebred Single-Core 1.6 GHz Socket A DHD1600DLV1C Processor

Pros: I bought this proc w/ a Rosewill heatsink/fan combo to replace a fried XP2100. Plugged it into an ECS board, bumped it to run 140 from 133, & it's been running constantly & stumble-free ever since!

Cons: It was named Duron...that seems to be about it.

Other Thoughts: options for Socket A are drying up quickly...I guess I'll need to go modern again in a couple years. At least I know an AMD proc will last that long! hee hee

Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3250823AS 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I replaced dual 60GB Seagate IDE drives with this single 250GB ATA150. Easy to install with minimal effort, & using Seagate's utilities from their homesite was a snap. The MB driver to make it the only HDD was a pain, but that's not Seagate's fault. The fate of the old 60s? One replaced an abused 40GB WD HDD in my kid's 1GHz Duron machine; the other is in a portable USB drive case, maybe to be used for network storage later on.

Cons: None that I have seen, and I expect none for years to come. I only replaced my dual 60GB Seagates for greater main storage space.

Other Thoughts: Remember that OEM drives don't come with anything but the drive itself. If you don't have the cable and power adapter, either get the retail box or remember to order them with the drive.
