SYBA SY-PEX23063 Dual Function Bluetooth 2.1 and WiFi Wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n PCI-E x1 Controller Card PCI Express Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It is an adapter with removeable N150 WIFI BT card by RALINK and seems even more promising if upgraded to a low cost Intel AC card. Price seemed very fair, only to find it was not nearly worth my time and frustration with poor product.

Cons: Card and attached bracket are pushed several millimeters forward so they can not install in my motherboard slot. If I could seat this card straight down where the rear bracket lands, all the contacts would be misaligned to the next adjacent contact and fry my equipment! Thankfully the MB keyed plastic socket won't allow installation of this junk. Seeking refund from Newegg even though the cost is low.

Other Thoughts: I have been building computers for decades and sometimes needed to adjust a card, rear bracket, or screws to help fit the motherboard or case alignment. This card simply could not be adjusted enough to install in my PC so I reinstalled my previous WIFI card in the slot quite easily. Disappointed that a good product idea was manufactured so badly.

3 out of 5 eggs Best Cheap Case but Quality Problems 12/07/2015

This review is from: CASE ROSEWILL | FBM-05 Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case-Retail

Pros: Attractive, professional appearance, not too plain or too exotic/ugly. Includes ONE front USB 3.0 port for motherboard USB 3.0 header. Two fans included. No problems mounting motherboard, DVDRW drive, 3.5 inch front bay, and SSD with 2.5 inch adapter.

Cons: My first case was damaged with a punctured hole in the box, denting the side panel. Not sure if a warehouse or shipping issue. Newegg replaced, but that arrived with a badly crooked soldered USB 2.0 port. Another replacement (3rd time) was good. Front cover removal is too tight and has a bad crack on back side. Not visible on front.

Other Thoughts: This has a LOT of potential as a cheap priced micro ATX mini case with good looks and features. I had much trouble getting a good one though, and great Newegg service is the only reason I did not ask for refund instead.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

Pros: Good, reliable brand in kit with heatsinks and nice-looking design.

Cons: Price per GB is not as reasonable as larger capacity memory kits. Also, contrary to one posted user review this kit does not work in older socket 775 DDR3 boards requiring double-sided modules.

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit ONLY because the review by Anonymous on 7/9/2011 at 11:21:21 pm stated it worked with Intel DP45SG motherboard. That review is wrong as I suspected. Docked one egg only for price per GB, but not the faulty reviewer.
