BOSS Office Products B317-BK Task Chairs
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs as i expected 12/22/2015

This review is from: BOSS Office Products B317-BK Task Chairs

Pros: sturdy.
does not move unless you flip and and move screws.
does not have recline bar.
so far,casters decent

Cons: does not have recline bar, though i was tired of those getting wornout

chair back could be 6" higher.
work chair/at desk chair. one for at home and a few for the office (repair shop)
just what i wanted, and i have always been loyal to executive-style chairs. but, simplicity has its perks. on sale under 75.00 its a no brainer. full retail (which ive seen from 110-150) i would wait.

Other Thoughts: UPDATE: After owning 4 of these for over a year i would say...I shoudl give them 5 eggs. I seem to have neglected to mention one flaw..it was an odd flaw. Every chair I bought, all from Newegg, had at least one screw hole that was not machined/tapped correctly, and every assembly has one screw in the back-to-base set, that does not go in flush. It actually sticks out 1/4-1/2 ". Even with only three properly rooted, and even though then back-to-base bar that holds the backrest always wiggles and can not be tightened to not do so, the chair is still a solid 5 egg if purchased on sale under 90.00 inc. shipping. I am done with heavy executive style chairs that I always feel compelled to 'over-keep' due to the 150 + price one normally pays....The 'task' style, IF having full arms, is the way to go. (Full arms means that they have a support on front & back of arm, not a one side support that curls backward.) I am still confused as to how EVERY chair I have bought has had same flaw in one of the 4 holes for the base screw, but next one I buy ( likely a red one for my son and pink one for my daughter as they LOVE to sit in mine) I will not try using a screwdrivwer on the base i will just grab my drill and attach the phillips head and if I get resistance then perhaps I will try to re-pilot the hole. Lastly, I would reiterate, BIGGEST Pro is NO RECLINE BAR.

USB Micro SATA + Mini PCIE to mSATA 3x5cm SSD Micro SATA Adapter Card Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: good enough. two parts...hmmm. so you can use it for other size sata ? i suppose. though likely just for cheaper production

Cons: packaging. you will need luck to get it working. but price is so low. china has what is called air packet, their version of our media mail. that is how you are getting all your small, inexpensive parts from china that make no sense financially (like under 10.0 for international shipping including the product) It is not the highest quality and many companies ship in simply a thin plastic envelope with no padding. They dont have a 'fragile' designation like USPS does.

Other Thoughts: KNOW WHAT YOU NEED. This is not the same as 2.5 sata or 1.8 sata. nor will it work for proprietary MAC Lenovo and ASUS SSDs. Good luck finding anything that does read those drives except the machine they came in. Stop buying these type of products from these companies if you dont like it....or learn to back up your data.
UPDATE: As now most people should understand the difference between 2.5 sATA,m-sata and m.2, this is a good buy just know that if you have an Apple, their m.2 is proprietary and this will not work.

Perixx PX-1100 Backlit Gaming Keyboard - Red/Blue/Purple Illuminated Keys
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Well its simple; either copyright is a non-factor in China or they bought the Saitek design, and as the Saitek Eclipse II is my favorite...this exact duplicate is perfect.

Cons: taking $ out saitek pocket? dont even know what country they are in im just guessing china. only con, i cant go back and buy 100 of these at 20.00. I got it for 20.00 on sale (Saitek going for about 80? i think). I see they are now 70, temporarily on sale for 50.00. If you like the EclipseII get this before the price is the same. Identical I tell ya.

Other Thoughts: UPDATE: So, when I bought this I still had 3 Saitek NIB. I realized that the price had shot up as apparently Saitek is out of business.So after owning it for many months now, I still say its near identical to the Eclipse II. I did also, after selling my new ones, by a used Saitek online and when I got it I took it apart to clean and try to fix it. I have not taken apart the Perrix yet, but that would be the true telling of how close they are. I do see the genius of the Saitek design though I will warn anyone considering repairing their own; do NOT strip even one screw hole.If all holes are not intact for reassembly you will have string problems in that area. Another consideration, many of the used Saiteks I saw were missing one or both of the stands (and the palm rest but I throw those out myself). Buying a Perrix, at the right price, is a great way to get the impossible to find pieces to fix your Saitek....

But three/four months now at least...and Perrix still has good LED, uniform key responce, and is a good knock off. My Saiteks only ever got thrown out due to frustartion with missing stands (that I broke) or from maybe a spill....Never had I actually burned one out. So we will see if Perrix can stand same test of time. Even my G110 finally burned out with using the LED all the time, and started to show significant wear, but never my Saiteks.
