This review is from: Tripp Lite SRCOOL12K 120V, Self-Contained Portable Air Conditioning Unit
Pros: All of the pro from my previous review still apply.
Warranty replacement of the unit was perfect after it died. Tripp Lite sent me a brand new unit free of charge.
Cons: My experience with this unit turned out to be the same as the consumer room air conditioning units. It developed an annoying squeak about a year after I got it. this was a high pitched plastic rubbing on plastic squeak. I did tons of things to try and stop it but nothing helped.
14 months in to it's life, the unit died. It's evaporator would freeze in to a solid block of ice. (Low refrigerant problem.)
Other Thoughts: I'd happily pay extra for a heavy duty unit that wouldn't die every 14 months. I thought that was what I was getting with the Tripp Lite over the consumer Royal Sovereign units. I guess not.
The moral of the story is not to mess with these portable units if you need a reliable unit that will run for years 24/7. Instead, get a ductless mini split system with low ambient operation. Yeah, they are $3-5k but at least they will last. The nice thing about them is that if you are in a plenum environment with a decent ceiling space or warehouse nearby, you can put the condenser there.
Pros: You don't deserve a pro for this horrible packaging.
Cons: Horrible, terrible packaging. I realize that I'm ordering a bare OEM drive. But that doesn't mean that Newegg should put in in a box with a piece of bubble wrap. Not wrapped in bubble wrap. Not immibolized in the box by bubble wrap. Loose in the box to bang around unprotected on all sides except the one that the bubble wrap is on. What is their shipping department thinking?!? This is an expensive, precision piece of equipment.
The way my drives arrived, there were two drives in their own individual boxes in one larger Newegg box. The two smaller boxes are the ones described above. To make matters worse, the smaller boxes were shoved up against the side of the bigger box with NO PACKAGING. So it was essentially a hard drive with two thin layers of cardboard protecting it.
Other Thoughts: I just ordered three 3TB WD Red drives. One good, two DOA. Packaged similarly to the 3TB drives above.
I will never buy hard drives from Newegg ever again.
This review is from: BYTECC HD-BOX35BKW 3.5" Hard Drive x 3 Protection Boxes
Pros: Decent for the price.
Cons: Latch isn't very good. I wrap mine in packaging tape to make sure that it stays closed.
Only two small foam strips on the bottom and one oval on the top. I'd prefer more. No foam on the ends, just on the top and bottom of the drive.
Other Thoughts: Pull FAST and you'll usually got the whole label off in one yank, one side at a time.READ FULL REVIEW
