This review is from: Netis AD1102 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Adapter, 10/100/1000 Mbps
Pros: I always keep one of these as a spare so when the onboard NIC chip goes bad in someone's PC, I can pop this in and they are good to go. Notice the cooler on the chip.....a sign of quality. The chip gets warm when it is working hard and the cooler adds to the life of the electronics......heat is the enemy of solid state devices due to the negative temperature coefficient.
Cons: Nothing so far and I have used several of these.
Other Thoughts: This is a solid and inexpensive way to add gigabit capability to a system with a built in NIC chip that is only 10/100 capable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This case is mostly holes. In the world of high-powered
computers that is a good thing. You can easily cool any
system by adding fans and the airflow will take care of itself....no hot air will be trapped inside this case.
This is a well-built case and has room for lots of goodies inside. The four USB ports on the top work great for me since I have the systems sitting below the desk. On the desktop you might have to stand up to plug in a thumb drive but that is not a great big problem.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Other Thoughts: This is the fourth one of these I have purchased. Three of them I bought at F_y's and I paid more. Newegg beat their price. Then, with the free shipping and rebate I saved even more. I am very pleased. Money saved and I didn't have to leave the house.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MASSCOOL 8W553B1M3 90mm Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: It looks and works better than an OEM cooler. It dropped
my cpu temp by 10 degrees C. I figure if the OEM cooler
is adequate to ensure the manufacturer's warranty then this
one should make it last even better since it runs cooler.
Cons: Nothing particular wrong with this cooler.
Other Thoughts: It would be niggling to criticize the quality or the parts
build level. You get what you pay for. It isn't the best made
cooler out there but it isn't the most expensive either.
To say "you get what you pay for" isn't always true. I would
say "you never get more than you pay for and sometimes
you get a whole lot less". In any event, for the price this
is a sold performer.
