TRENDnet TEG-S224 Unmanaged Copper Gigabit Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Made it 2 - 3 years 07/18/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S224 Unmanaged Copper Gigabit Switch

Pros: Plug and play - fire up 12 stations with 2 LAN ports each.

Cons: Purchased 2 of these at the same time about 3 years ago. they both started failing after 2 years of 24/6 usage. Had to power cycle every couple weeks, then more often and now can't keep them up for more than 5 mins.

Other Thoughts: Ironically, I am finding this the best value to replace the dead ones with... so, buying another.

Acer X1161P SVGA 800x600 2700 Lumens 3D Ready DLP Projector
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs One down.. Lessons learned 02/05/2013

This review is from: Acer X1161P SVGA 800x600 2700 Lumens 3D Ready DLP Projector

Pros: Affordable. Really clear and decent picture (if you are not sitting within 4 feet of the screen). Easy to use, focus and enjoy.

Cons: fragile and appears to be super sensitive to heat and humidity. The first one died at 6 weeks old. Used it every day and it got left on over night more than once (fell asleep while watching my 10' picture!). Then... no light, but bulb was good. Our heat supplemented with filtered dryer air = added humidity and comfortable warm temps in the house and an appearant hazard to the projector.

Other Thoughts: Acer's customer service has suffered greatly since the Gateway/eMachines merge. It borders on un-friendly. I purchased a replacement unit and will take better care of it. Dead at 6 weeks and weeks to have fixed (and do without a picture)?? = Not acceptable.

G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: GSKILL usually has very reliable product at a decent price. These are cool looking.

Cons: After reading most of the reviews here, I see hit and miss on GSKILL's quality of this product. I ordered a set and.. got the miss side of the equation. I am writing a review because I feel others need warned about the level of risk they take in ordering this product. Buy GSKILL, but pass on this model.

Other Thoughts: What GSKILL's response needs to be is they are pulling this name shaming product from the distributors and are reviewing their production and quality procedures for this product. I buy GSKILL for reliability - this product fails and these reviews show a trend... A trend needs to be addressed and corrective action put into place....
Thank you for your time.
