This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged Gigabit GREENnet Switch
Cons: Didn't include a unicorn.
Other Thoughts: The test of a switch is how long it lasts. For whatever reason, I haven't had a 10/100/1000 switch last longer than 3 years, while I have 10/100 switches working great after more than a decade of use. If this one fails, I'll come back and update this review.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DGS-2208 Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Green Ethernet Switch
Pros: Works until it fails.
Cons: Fails. Bought one 4 years ago. Also, the warranty is 3 years on hardware, not 'lifetime limited' as newegg claims. I've had one other switch fail in my lifetime and it was just a cheap no-name switch. I've got cheap switches from the 90s that still work fine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APC RBC5 Replacement Battery Cartridge #5
Pros: It worked for two years.
Cons: The one it replaced worked for 7 years.
When I first received this battery I questioned APC as to why the new battery was 375 grams lighter than the old battery. They told me this was within normal tolerance. Coming from the lead acid battery manufacturing industry I know that this is not correct. 150 grams would be within tolerance. Since the warranty is only 12 months I can't get a warranty replacement.
Other Thoughts: I'm done with APC batteries. I've now switched to using ABC batteries since they carry a 2 year warranty and are half the price.READ FULL REVIEW
