LG  WH10LS30 10X Blu-ray Burner - LightScribe Support - Bulk - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Garbage: Died after very minimal use 12/04/2012

This review is from: LG WH10LS30 10X Blu-ray Burner - LightScribe Support - Bulk - OEM

Pros: Worked well when I first got it.

Cons: Manufacture Date: June 2010
Purchase Date: November 27, 2010

Died after very light usage. Will not read Blu-rays or DVDs anymore, but CDs okay. May very well have broken long before the two year mark, but I don't know because the drive was used so infrequently. Never even got to burn a Blu-ray. My refurbished Toshiba HD DVD drive is even older and is still running strong.

Other Thoughts: I just have bad luck with optical drives. I've had four LITE-ONs die just after a year and now this. Best drive I've owned is a Pioneer DVD-RW that's 6 1/2 years old and still running.

LINKSYS CM100-RM Cable Modem with USB and Ethernet Connections Ethernet Port DOCSIS 1.0, DOCSIS 1.1 Certified, DOCSIS 2.0 Certified, IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u, USB1.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Dirt cheap
- Rock solid connection
- Saves you modem rental fees
- Small footprint

Cons: - You know something was wrong with the device at one point in time because it's recertified

Other Thoughts: WOOHOO!!! This is the first time I've ever been able to have torrents running without constant connection drops. I bought a D-Link DIR-625 because I thought it'd be a decent router for torrents. Nope, there goes the internet. So then I set up an Athlon XP computer running IPCop to handle torrents. Strike two! That left one last item in the chain to replace, that fugly, gigantic Motorola SBV5220. Whaddya know, everything's running flawlessly now. I was about to spend $70 on a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, but Newegg used its psychic abilities and put this one on sale. A++

NETGEAR WNR854T-100NAR Wireless Router Gigabit Edition IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Not worth $30, nor your time 07/02/2009

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR854T-100NAR Wireless Router Gigabit Edition IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft

Pros: Signal quality and transfer speeds seem very good when the router actually works.

Cons: Endless connection dropouts, which seem to get worse when more people are connected. The most common dropout is when the wireless network is still up, but unable to connect for about a minute. On rarer occasions, the wireless indicator shuts off completely and the wifi doesn't even show up on available networks. In that situation I either have to power cycle the router or wait like half an hour.

Other Thoughts: I read through the reviews and saw that the router is almost guaranteed to die in about six months and I was content with that for the price and the speed offered, but the connection dropouts really kill the deal. Stay away from this dreaded thing. I can't even imagine how angry I'd be if I'd payed the full retail price. BTW, I haven't tested the wired functionality.
