OCZ Agility 2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: none

Cons: Toshiba now owns OCZ and they are not honoring most of the OCZ warranties. I had an SSD drive that went bad and did actually get a replacement drive. The drive they sent me was DOA so I called them up and was told that only the original drive is covered under warranty and even though we sent you a NON-FUNCTIONING drive that's just your tough luck.
Might as well have sent me a stick of bubble gum as what they sent me had ZERO value!

1 out of 5 eggs Nothing good to say. Nothing. 05/05/2016


Pros: Absolutely nothing.

Cons: A little slow on delivery... not bad but you can tell this is NOT shipping from NewEgg.
I got the multi-color pack that has 2 XL Black cartridges and the 3 color cartridges. The first one I opened was one of the black cartridges. There's a little sticker that says "Pull" and as soon as I did black ink SPRAYED out of the top! I had ink on my hands, my furniture, the wall and a stack of tin-type photos from the 1850's that are just ruined.
After rinsing the cartridge off (at least two teaspoons of ink was still bubbling out the top), I installed the cartridge and did a head cleaning and a test print.
Total zebra strip output. So now on head cleaning #5 it's better but not what I would even call "passable".
I'll do a few more cleanings to see if it EVER improves but not looking good.

Other Thoughts: Figured that for this review I should at least try one of the other cartridges. This time I took the magenta cartridge and removed the sticker while standing over the sink with a towel over it. SAME THING!!! Ink came gushing out of the top of the cartridge. I did a clean up of the mess and with a heavy sigh, installed the cartridge.
Three more cleaning cycles and the magenta is totally unacceptable and the black cartridge has had almost NO improvement.
A totally useless, substandard product. I'll report back on how well their return process goes.
Any one know how to remove printer ink from fabric?

Intel NUC NUC5i3RYH, USB 3.0, Supports M.2 SSD card, Intel HD Graphics 5500, 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: After my flaming review of the NUC5PPYH I'm happy to say this unit was successfully deployed, running Windows 10 Pro serving out a MS-SQL database. Works Great.

I test loaded Windows7 Pro, Window 10 Enterprise (OEM) and finally Windows 10 Pro. The Windows 7 Pro (customized with Intel's program to inject the USB 3.0 driver) that I could NOT get running on the NUC5PPYH installed perfectly. The Windows 7 install went fairly well even though my "Device Manager" showed a couple of items that it didn't have drivers for.

I downloaded and installed EVERYTHING from Intel's web site but never did figure out what items it was that were missing drivers.

After a couple of other smaller quirks I wanted to do further testing and both version of Windows 10 had absolutely no problems so that's what I went with and the unit has been rock solid for the last week.

Cons: Troubleshooting via Intel's web site is just a horrible experience. Just the question of what OS versions are compatible, they show many contradictions.

Other Thoughts: Intel is certainly THE big name brand but I think I would try one of the alternative manufacturers next time. MSI looks like they have a nice product and I'd probably choose one of those next time.

I took off a start just because I'm still recovering from the beating I took with the NUC5PPYH !
