APC RBC32 Replacement Battery Cartridge #32
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs disapointed 11/29/2014

This review is from: APC RBC32 Replacement Battery Cartridge #32

Pros: none

Cons: I'm switching brands. I've been an APC guy for 20 years. Now I'm going CyberPower. I got a cyberPower about 2 years ago. Been very happy with it. Got my current APC about 6 months prior and have been very unhappy with it.
It seems like it has always done this thing where it screams and shuts off, or actually shuts off then screams while the power is on. My other computer hooked up to the cyber power never blinks and the cyber power never indicates any disturbance in the power. My lights don't blink.
But my APC unit turns off power to this computer and screams at me.

After about 6 months of this with it getting more and more frequent I opted to try and replacement battery. This seemed to work for awhile - but then it happened again. But like the first time it started to happen I just turned the APC off waited a moment and turned it back on.
I seem to like to just chalk it up to a fluke, and go on, as I can have an actual power blink where the lights do go out and both the APC and cyber power keep their respective computers up till the power comes back on or I shut down.

But now it is doing it all the time again and I just checked the warranty. Year is up. 13 months to be exact. It first started doing it a couple months ago, but no company is going to care about that. So after 20 plus years with APC's I will be running two Cyber powers.

ASUS VW266H Black 25.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Love this monitor. The size is great. Lots of room. The colors are good. I read a review about it before I bought it from someone that had sent 3 back because they had 1 artifact.
This one has ONE as well. One pixel that stays white - I've got a black desk top which is the only reason I ever saw it and right now knowing its there I can't find it.
I've never noticed it gaming or surfing or writing papers.

Cons: No cons. I wrote another review earlier where the con was I never got my rebate.
ASUS Customer Loyalty
Responded to my review and I took her up on her offer of contacting her and I got my Rebate. So now nothing but a happy camper.

Intel 330 Series Maple Crest 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price performance.
I picked this thing up back 11/1/12 for $99.99.
What a buy. I only wish I'd bought 4. I have 2 computers and would love 2 in each in raid.
The one I did buy has just been great!

Cons: The only con is I did not buy more of them.

Other Thoughts: I love this utility that Intel provides.

I am sold on intel drives and processors. I swore off other processors about 6 years ago and now I'm swearing off other SSD's.
