Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1D)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Inexpensive, good quality, fast reads

Cons: writes are slow

Other Thoughts: The drive is great if you plan to store specific files on it for accessing when you need them. However, if you're looking for a drive you'll be writing to regularly, this drive lacks when it comes to writing speeds. In my case, I have the files I need on it so the only speeds I'm concerned about are its read speeds since it's essentially a read only drive. In fact, this drive is both larger and has faster reads than the Corsair drive it replaced. Here are my CrystalDiskMark (5.1.2) results:

Seq read: 133.3
Seq write: 29.92
4k read: 12.560
4k write: 0.151

If you plan to regularly transfer new movies to this drive or some other type of heavy writing, you'll want to up your budget a bit. If you primarily need the drive for reading files, it's not only less expensive than the other options but it performs with/better than them too. I wish its write speeds were a little faster but I write to it so seldomly that it's a great option/well worth the cost.

Linksys CM3008 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (8x4 Bonded channels)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs discrete, inexpensive 07/22/2016

This review is from: Linksys CM3008 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (8x4 Bonded channels)

Pros: it's small, fast, you'll save $ every month

Cons: It gets warmer than the Comcast modem this replaced but it functions fine

Other Thoughts: I only have a 75Mbps connection but this modem functions as it should giving me my rated speeds. Functionally, I see no difference between this and the modem I replaced. I can't believe I didn't get my own modem sooner, for every 6 months I paid the modem rental fee I could've purchased another one of these.
I put it getting warm as a con but that's probably a side effect of it being so small, which I like. It doesn't seem to cause any harm, it functions just fine and it isn't like it's hot/going to burn you.
This modem gives me my rated speeds without any sort of latency issues. Do yourself a favor, you're wasting money renting a modem from your cable provider. My cable provider has slowly but surely increased my rental fee from $5 to $10 over the years. Paying that $10 each month since the last rate increase costs $120 each year when you can own this outright for much less than a single year's rental fees. It was easy to get this modem activated/online and it has been functioning perfectly for over a week. It's a great product.

MSI Radeon RX 480 8G

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing, it brought my Phenom II back to life 07/15/2016

This review is from: MSI Radeon RX 480 8G

Pros: VR ready, blower design (my ITX case requires this)

Cons: No DVI-D. Luckily I have 2 systems with 1440 monitors. One of my monitors requires a DVI-D (dual link input) so I ended up having to swap my monitors around.

Other Thoughts: This is an amazing card, I upgraded my GPU to try and bring this PC back to life and it more than exceeded my expectations. I put this in my ITX cube equipped with a Phenom II x4 955 w/8GB ram (not OC'd) that I built 8-9 years ago. To put the system to the test, I ran the SteamVR test and it actually scored a 6.7 with 0% frames under 90fps, the Steam result rates it as capable of high quality VR despite my system being so aged. The most expensive part about VR is a PC capable of running it. This was a budget PC when I built it 8-9 years ago, and all I did was add this card I purchased on release day and it's a VR beast despite my CPU being far below the minimum recommendation.
I put the card having no DVI as a con but it's more of a con for my monitor being an outdated, first gen 1440 display. DisplayPort and HDMI is no doubt the standard these days, I put that as a con because the inconvenience of having to play musical monitors was the closest thing I could find to list.
I wish I could add another egg to its rating, the RX 480's are the best buy out there. They're extremely powerful for the price and Newegg got it to me quick, I was able to get my system up and gaming within a couple days.
