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 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 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.

APEX SK-393-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Bargain 08/07/2014

This review is from: APEX SK-393-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1- Three day Premier shipping turned out to be *two* days
2- Fast order/shipping processing
3- Arrived intact
4- You can side mount a 120mm fan (holes lined up)
5- Large/stiff power button
6- Four USB ports on front (mine are not loose)
7- Although its a mid tower there is plenty of room

Cons: 1- Thin gauge (all cheap cases are)
2- A 92mm case fan will not fit on the back (80 & 90mm will)
3- Not enough brass motherboard risers included for ATX motherboard
4- One zip tie included??
5- Case speaker is a short waiting to happen ( I did not use it)
6- USB ports are mounted upside down; however had NO effect on my wireless Logitech K400r keyboard

Other Thoughts: At $24.99 you can not expect a high quality case, but I have always had good experiences with Apex. Luckily, I am using a micro ATX motherboard and already was aware of the upside down mounted USB ports. It was a pleasant surprise to see a 120mm fan will line up on case's side vent holes. Although some have stated the power button is mushy and USB ports were loose mine does not have these two issues. All wiring is plenty long enough too. For a basic pc, HTPC, or even a budget gamer build this case will work nicely. If I had not discovered a 120mm fan will bolt up to side vent holes I was going to take out my drill/bit to modify this case to fit a rear 92mm case fan. I like it...
