ThinkPad Edge E431 (627758U) Notebook Intel Core i3 3120M (2.50GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good value, good performance and well worth the purchase price. It's not a gaming device by any stretch, but for home business/ student, it's quite adequate.

Cons: Nothing was/is said about this being a downgraded Windows 8 computer but it certainly seems to be. The three recovery disks are all Windows 8 and the Microsoft key is not recoverable. You can get the maker's default key, but that is basically useless. I deducted one egg for this. But, having created several System Images (on different HDDs) and sequestering them in safe places, I feel quite covered for disaster recovery. System Image restoration has worked flawlessly for me so I'm good with this. It remains to be seen what OS the locally generated recovery disks will actually restore. There is only a single LED to note power ON with no others to indicate charging, HDD activity and the other usual ones. The case is definitely not heavy duty, but don't play football with it and you'll be fine

Other Thoughts: When I purchased this computer, it had five rather high ratings, now there's only one ... two when mine is added. Very odd Newewgg, very odd indeed

Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It was great for 5 1/2 months.

Cons: Purchased from on 1/9/12 and today it failed. It began having problems the first of June and limped along with periodic disconnects until today.

You can take that for what it's worth.

Rosewill RX81U-AT-25A Rigid aluminum 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price, size and performance. Works as advertised. Construction is about as robust as you can expect for the price.

Cons: The instructions are horrid. All you need to do is attached the drive, slide it into the case, line up the holes and seat the two front side screws gently. Why they tell you not to remove but one base screw is obviously a translation failure.

Other Thoughts: The little blue LED on the top front of the unit clicks like a button but is functionless. But it is a nice shade of blue and responds to activity appropriately.

At the price I paid, or even full price, this is a throw away unit if/when it fails.
