This review is from: EVGA 430 W1 100-W1-0430-KR 80+ WHITE 430W Power Supply
Pros: A lot of power to spare. Carries the load comfortably. Fits inside my HP work-horse perfectly.
Exceptionally quiet. What is novel for me is that now I hear only the processor fan, and not the PSU fan
A very generous supply of connectors were provided, and I used most of them.
The mesh on the cables is a nice touch, and so is the included-set of installation screws.
Cons: The wires for the connectors are a bit too stiff, which makes them a bit too hard to handle, place, and connect.
No major drawbacks though
Other Thoughts: I used the Newegg two-day shipping, and so I am off and and running less than 40 hours after I placed the order. Thanks Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to set up.
Easy to configure and operate.
Provides a major improvement over my Actiontec. In the outlying areas, where I used to get only 4Mbps, I now get 10-20.
The sale price was very attractive.
The second (ac) band is very nice. Aside from the high speed, it is not as highly populated as the 2.4ghz by my neighbors' routers
Cons: 1. Internal antennas are a blessing and a curse at the same time. Without antennas, this unit is less of an eye-sore, although that means that the antennas can not be adjusted, extended, or upgraded; not without opening up the unit anyway..
2. The USB service feature does not seem to work, even after a firmware upgrade.
Other Thoughts: On balance, this was a good purchaseREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link GO-SW-8G Unmanaged Gigabit Desktop Switch
Pros: Item arrived in a very well protected box. It installed quickly and without a problem. Ten minutes later, I had far more ports than I had before. The signal strength of the devices that used to connect directly to the router, and now do so through this switch, is the same or better.
Cons: I prefer to place adapters and modems vertically. Most come with a detachable base. This one does not.
Other Thoughts: My location, and the location of the nearest Newegg depot, have not changed. Under the new shipping policies, the items takes 3-4 days to get to me. Gone are the days that I used to get my items the next day.READ FULL REVIEW
