Nippon Labs HDB-35525 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Ignore the innapropriate bad reviews 06/01/2014

This review is from: Nippon Labs HDB-35525 3.5" HDD/SSD Mounting Bracket

Pros: Cheap and simple. Won't burst into flames or knock up your daughter.

Cons: Some of the screw holes are a bit more difficult to use than others but those are really only necessary if you're using these with a 3.5"x1.75" drive. I haven't seen one of those in many, many years, though.

Other than that. they don't install themselves, order pizza, make a sandwich, or throw epic parties.

Other Thoughts: Ignore the bad reviews.

Won't fit your SSD? Of course it won't, Genius; this bracket (as is clearly stated in the description) is for mounting a 3.5" device in a 5.25" bay. Your SSD is 2.5" (which is not the same as 3.5" for those who have severely impaired spatial perception).

Four of the screws don't fit? Of course they don't; they're for the 3.5" hard drive you're attaching to these brackets. 3.5" devices use 6-32 screws and 5.25" HH devices use M3 screws. It's been this way for more than 25 years. I didn't understand back then why 5.25" devices used smaller screws and I still don't but that's just the way it is. Anyone who self-assigns a tech level of four or five should be completely aware of that fact.

I remember when these first became common as 3.5" hard drives began replacing 5.25" as standard. I thought they were a brilliantly simple solution to the problem at hand and they still are. I've used dozens of them over the years and they have always worked precisely as intended.

Magic Wand HV260 Personal Massager
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs It lives up to its reputation 03/12/2014

This review is from: Magic Wand HV260 Personal Massager

Pros: Construction, effectiveness, still made by Hitachi - they just decided to rebrand it after deciding it wasn't consistent with the corporate image.

Who knew you'd ever be able to buy intimate adult toys on NewEgg?

Cons: Sometimes it is cheaper here, sometimes it is cheaper on 4maz*n.

Other Thoughts: The only caveat is to learn how to spot a fake and return it immediately. Many vendors on the internet are selling fakes, some apparently right alongside the real McCoy. The counterfeits are of very poor quality and are easy to spot once you know the difference. (Hint: G**gle "Hitachi Wand Counterfeit")

Once you get it, you won't be disappointed. There is much fun to be had with your partner or alone. It isn't exactly quiet but it isn't going to rouse the entire neighborhood, either. Chances are good that she'll be louder than the Magic Wand. And yes, it is very aptly named.

I've bought one of these for a few girlfriends over the years. Every once in a while I'll remind one or another of them to think of me when they use it.

G.SKILL 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model F3-1333C9S-8GSA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Performs as advertised. Works fine with an older PC3 10666 8GB module from G.Skill.

Cons: Why are some DDR3-1333 modules rated as PC3-10600 and others as PC3-10666? Memory manufacturers need to get their acts together in this regard. RAMMon shows both operating at 10666 MB/s. It's irritating to find identical RAM under two different listings when you're checking prices.

Other Thoughts: It's from G.Skill - I don't even look at RAM from anyone else any more.
