Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The great:
1- 80 Plus Bronze
2- Plenty of connectors
3- All cabling meshed & adequate length for any case
4- 630 *continuous watts
5- Single +12v rail @ 50A
6- Sturdy housing
7- NO coil whine
8- Under heavy graphical load/CPU ocing PSU runs warm
9- Over 1 year heavy usage & still going strong

Cons: The Bad:
1- the *silent 120mm golf cooling fan began to sound like a baby rattler after less than 1 week's use (see other thoughts)
2- Not modular
3- Price fluctuates

Other Thoughts: Yes, the cooling fan began to rattle after less than 1 week's usage...like a baby rattler; however I had an Antec PSU fan lying around , so I opened the case breaking OEM seal (void warranty) and repaired it myself. After installing the Antec 120mm fan all has been bliss for over 1 year. Originally it powered an AMD FX-4100 oced to 4.4Ghz/core & a Gigabyte AMD/Radeon HD 7850 graphics card w/o issues. It is currently powering my HTPC and still going strong. I know all I had to do was RMA it (not from Newegg) & pay one way shipping/tracking/signature required fees to get a replacement...LOL equal to what I paid for the unit...no thank you! It is the common problem with 99% of PSU manufacturers' "warranties." FYI you should always use a surge protector/UPS that has AVR (automatic voltage regulation), so as to avoid premature PSU failures. I am so impressed with the unit I changed my previous rating of 3 eggs to four!

netTALK DUO2 Duo Voip Telephone Free Usa Andperp Canada Calling
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Customert Service Extinct 08/13/2014

This review is from: netTALK DUO2 Duo Voip Telephone Free Usa Andperp Canada Calling

Pros: The Good:
1- Basic Call Plan (US & Canada) $29.95 + fees + taxes = approximately $38.00/year
2- Caller ID, Call Block, Call Trace included
3- Will work with any VOIP compatible fax machine
4- Paid/year
5- Free long distance

Cons: The Bad:
1- Unlike approximately 4 years ago there is NO phone customer service/tech support...only web based chat
2- My recent experience with the web only chat help service was a joke
3- If you have an issue with your nettalk adapter you are on your own

Other Thoughts: The Ugly:
I have used this VOIP service for almost 4years. When I first activated my adapter there was decent customer service/tech support via phone. Just recently I had to use the web only chat help service...it was far from helpful. If any of you out there ever have your adapter go from blinking green back to red over and over again...and you have a dial tone, but can not dial out here is what you need to do:
1- Make sure your ISP is working
2- Check to see if your router has gone bad
3- See if your ethernet cable is bad
4- Try unplugging and replugging adapter power cord
5- Make sure your phone has not died
6- IF all above checks out here is what I had to do:

A- Disconnect everything from nettalk adapter
B- On front of it beside mini USB port is a recessed reset button
C- Plug in only power cord...wait for red light
D- Hold in reset button (use paper clip...small pin) wait approx. 30 seconds
E- Unplug power cord while still holding in reset button....keep it still depressed for additional 30 seconds
F- While still holding in reset button re-plug in adapter power cord...wait 30 more seconds...release reset button
G- Wait 1 minute....leave power cord plugged in and re-connect ethernet cable and phone line
H- Adapter light should go from red to solid green and your phone will ring once...you are good to go
I- IF this does not work you may need a new adapter

I did NOT get this info from nettalk. Based upon my recent personal experience with nettalk chat help the company unlike 4 years ago no longer gives a darn about customer service, or tech support.. As for phone service itself overall it has been average with occasional service outages. Unless you are fairly tech savy I recommend you look elsewhere for a VOIP service. FYI I highly advise you use this with a good surge protector.

Western Digital WD Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1- Quiet
2- Two year warranty
3- SATA 6 capable
4- All three drives I own work perfectly @ 1 year use

Cons: 1- OEM means no mounting screws, no SATA cable, or instructions
2- Usually overpriced

Other Thoughts: I have owned three of these drives for right at one year including my own PC and have not had any issues. If you can purchase this drive for $48.00 to $50.00 it's a good deal; however it is usually overpriced.
