Pros: Works as designed in early 2009 Mac Pro, now at 24 GB (4 x 4gb plus the original 4 x 2gb that came with the system). Stress tested for a couple of hours and more than satisifed with the heat levels. I am tempted to buy another set to replace the original memory taking me to 32 GB (the original system limitation), but this will more than meet my needs for a while. With the 8GB and 16 GB modules now available pushing the limits to 64gb and 96gb respectively, I will likely wait a few years for those prices to come down and for NewEgg to stock those parts. Being able to bring up all of my VMs at one time is outstanding, I finally have more GB of memory than processing cores... =)
Cons: Slightly cheaper for simliarly guaranteed compatible components elsewhere; however, NewEgg has always taken care of me the few times I have RMAed items.
Also NewEgg generally does not go into bleeding edge components like the 16gb modules, but then again the market is limited and the price is not competitive at the moment.
Other Thoughts: Great buy for owners of Mac Pro 2009 and beyond.
Nicely packaged, minimal waste.
This review is from: SABRENT USB-RJXT USB Extension cable over Cat5e RJ45 Extender adapter
Pros: Works as designed for USB 1.X devices. I tested with a mouse, keyboard, and a X10 Active Home Pro control module.
The x10 module is in my basement close to the circuit breaker box and my server is on the second floor. X10 control modules should always be located close to the breaker box to maximize signal strength over electrical wires. Between which I have about 75' of CAT 6 UTP with patch panel connections at both ends. I see a solid connection when uploading code to the X10 module (the most aggressive task over this connection). Also my Windows server for my X10 home control network reside inside a VM on my server, and I showed no incompatiblity with redirecting the USB port to the Windows Server VM. If my setup works, I suspect a less complex setup will work. I did not require a powered USB hub at the far end of the cable, but that may be since the X10 module is powered.
Cons: Newegg was not the lowest cost by a significant margin. While I am a dedicated customer because of the service Newegg provides, I could not justify the extra cost due to the significant difference and went with another vendor.
Other Thoughts: For my purposes, worth the cost either way. This saves me from having a small lightly used server in my basement just to upload code to a USB device. A 75' USB cable behind my walls, unreal! =)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antennas Direct 91XG UHF Uni-Directional Antenna
Pros: Smaller profile than other antennas. Performance is very good, but extremely directional. I'm able to pick up HDTV digital signals at 80-90%. Was at about 30-40% with my old antenna. I can pick up both VHF and UHF when my pre-amp is hooked up.
Cons: Box was likely opened during shipping (staples came loose). Could be packaged a little better. Only has one mounting bracket for the pole. I had to fabricate an upper mount to put this in the way I _really_ wanted.
Other Thoughts: Use RG-6 and limit the cable run from the antenna if possible for better performance. I paired with a pre-amp for even better signal strength and to distribute to my entire house. Sure beats paying for TV service. I believe this will hold up better in the wind than my old antenna (which lasted 6 years), but only time will tell. Could get cheaper elsewhere, but hey... Newegg has always been trouble free for me!READ FULL REVIEW
