This review is from: Changhong 32" Class 1080p LED HDTV - LED32YC1600UA
Pros: 1080p confirmed
Delivered intact with good packaging
No bad pixels
Cons: Slight overscan problem with a computer. The image doesn't fill the entire screen. Might be just my video card.
The bezel is actually wider on the 32in model than the 50in model.
Other Thoughts: The rumor that this TV is only 720p is wrong.
This TV works very similar to the 50in version. Yes it is not perfect, but used correctly it is fine. If you use this with a computer, you need to switch the aspect ratio to PC mode to correct the overscan issue.
The remote is compatible with the 50in version.
Pros: Speeds are average for a budget SSD
Cons: Sata connector is not the same as shown - See other others
Windows 8.1 x64 shows this SSD as a removable device C: even though it is plugged into an on board sata port. This seems to be a huge driver error which would result in a blue screen if I accidentally ejected my operating system SSD.
Other Thoughts: The sata connector on the drive I received is not the same as the one pictured. The picture shows a standard molded plastic connector. My drive came with a sata connector in which the horizontal connector was part of the silicon motherboard, not plastic. The vertical section of the connector was plastic. This was probably done to save money and time in manufacturing. By integrating the data and power contacts into the same circuit board, it eliminated the need to solder the molded plastic connectors on. However, this caused a serious problem in a few computers I tested. The tolerances of this silicon connector must be slightly smaller which prevented several laptops from detecting the drive. I contacted Mushkin support and asked for advice. They advised me to send the drive at my expense to Mushkin for a free upgrade to a Chronos drive. Newegg Premiere membership gives me free returns so I declined.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
Pros: Newegg's very easy return system. Being a Premier member has its perks.
Cons: This item does not provide the wireless speed it claims. While the signal strength indicates full bars, the actual throughput is around 500kpbs. This performance is unacceptable. I tried downloading the latest driver from the Edimax website but it still makes no difference. Sent back for a refund.
Other Thoughts: Using Windows 7 x64. Other brand wireless adapters work just fine however, I was hoping to get a nano size.READ FULL REVIEW
