This review is from: D-Link Wireless N150 USB Adapter (DWA-125)
Pros: It is plug and play on my Win 7 Pro
Other Thoughts: I Plugged it in and and away I went. Now My router has enough free ports for Pioneer receiver's internet radio, Non-WiFi Xbox and cable box, with one to spare. I need to be able to plug in an Ethernet from time to time and having a free spot is nice. One day everything will come with wireless, but until then dongles for all! And the bonus is a nice long U.S.B female to male cable. It was a Shell Shocker so the price was right.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works well, wife loves it.
Other Thoughts: The first one arrived without critical parts, including the steam release valve. One return later ( New-egg C.S was very courteous and cool) the new cooker arrived (three weeks later) with all it's parts, and in working order. The box it was shipped in was the display box. In other words, if it's going to be a gift you want to keep a secret don't expect it to arrive in a plain brown box. It will be the one it sits on the store shelf in. This is not good for another reason, and the source of my main gripe. Who ever the outside vender is, new egg has partnered with to sell kitchen appliances, they are just slapping labels on display box's and dropping them in the mail with out regard to how they are being handled by the delivery service. The display package is not adequate protection, and invites the curiosity of thieves. The first cooker to show up at my doorstep was in such a badly battered box the Styrofoam inside was cracked in several places. I am not surprised parts were missing. I can not stress enough the fact that the outer display box ,things like this come in, is NOT sturdy enough to be shipped in. So in the end, shipping is paid twice by the seller, I get my stuff way late, after Christmas, despite being ordered early. How are they making any money?
No eggs off because the final product is good, but if I was able to rate the shipping experience; 2 stars, and I am being generous because New-egg customer service is one of the best. Love you New-egg.
Pros: Reasonably priced, Modular, and 80 Plus certified.
Cons: Need a rebate to make it a good value.
Other Thoughts: It's still to hard to find a good 500watt 80Plus power supply, for under fifty, that preforms well in bench mark testing. Of course that's with out a rebate. When I want something as fundamental as a power supply for a new build I want to spend my time looking a CPUs, motherboards, RAM, and cases not worrying about whether my power is clean enough not to fry my board. I think it would be of great advantage to New egg to sell a strong preforming, reliable 80 Plus certified 500watt and 700 watt power supply, for fifty, and seventy respectively. They should be modular, and clean, with out a bunch of stickers and fancy colors, bare metal or black. Most importantly, no long wait for a ten buck rebate. If what we are looking for is a good 500watt power supply for Fifty bucks why would we want to wait around for a rebate gift card? They could do a shell shocker, knock five bucks off, and they wouldn't be able to keep them in stock. It's like tires on a car. Car no go with out tire, but all tires have to meat a certain standard to be sold in the first place. I just want a limited but good and reliable selection, at a reasonable price. I'm not driving a formula one car, but it's not a Yugo Either. Sorry, that had little to do with the product. In my research I found it benched well and was recommended by Hardware secrets as a good basic power supply for the money. They tested the non modular version.READ FULL REVIEW
