ASUS VK248H-CSM Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonable price for a 24 inch monitor, packaged well enough survive UPS shipping. No dead or hot pixels. Webcam good enough for Skype or similar use. Speakers good enough for windows sounds.

Cons: Viewing angle not as good as I expected. Took some time to get video settings to a point I was happy with. Had to download PDF of users manual from ASUS web site. Documentation in box close to useless.

Other Thoughts: Only had this monitor for a week. Replaces a 19 inch 4:3 format LCD screen with blown capacitors in the power supply. Display arrived intact and contrast / brightness set at 100 percent. Camera works fine for Skype. Reviews on this monitor on other sites show alot of pixel issues and backlighting failures after a year of use, which is why I purchased extended warranty from New Egg.

TRENDnet TEG-PCITXR Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

5 out of 5 eggs If it fails, try older drivers 02/16/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-PCITXR Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: Inexpensive, Excellent Tech Support

Cons: watch your drivers.

Other Thoughts: I ran this NIC without trouble for two years, then it began to drop connection to my TrendNet switch. A previous one egg review I wrote on this product quickly got the attention of Trendnet tech support which suggested I download a different set of drivers from their web site. This seems to have corrected my dropped connections. Thank you.

ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decent overall build quality, stable firmware, fast, no problems handling 10 -15 attached devices on a regular basis. I used one wireless guest node to support an Internet only connection for a gen 2 Toshiba RS-TX20 TIVO that only supports a 802.11b WEP connections. This allows me to protect my Intranet with higher wireless security levels. Two laptop users in my home are hard to please, have marginal understanding of computers and the laptops only support 802.11 b/g. For some reason enabling N on 2.4ghz slows them down, so I set the router up to support b/g only on 2.4 ghz and N on 5ghz, making connections and speed more stable for these legacy users and keeping me satisfied with N speeds on 5ghz.

Cons: Run temp is quite warm in horizontal placement. Electronics typically don't like to be too warm a die sooner than later. Seems to be running a bit cooler by raising router about an inch off the shelf. Time will tell if this improves longevity.

Other Thoughts: I like the way the help options open a new browser tab and bring up the latest info on the subject from the ASUS web site. Wonder how long they will run this feature after they stop building these routers and replace it with something new.
