TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works fine, full speed, no problems.

Got it on sale for $22.99.

Cons: 5-year warranty, which isn't bad, but I got the equivalent Netgear for $24.99 after rebate with a lifetime warranty. The Netgear wasn't on sale yet when I bought this one.

Other Thoughts: I have this and the equivalent Netgear GS108. The Netgear is a little heavier, but functionally and speedwise for typical use there is no difference. I have them chained to each other, both work fine.

I actually prefer this one for a minor cosmetic reason to the Netgear, the TP-Link shows gigabit in green and 10/100 in yellow. Whereas the Netgear is always green, but different lights. From a distance you can tell better with the TP-Link.

I prefer the Netgear overall because of the lifetime warranty, and if you can get it on sale like I did then obviously get that one.

ASUS Google Nexus 7 First Gen 7

3 out of 5 eggs Great for the price of $99 after rebate 03/01/2014

This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 First Gen 7" 32 GB Android Wi-Fi Tablet

Pros: Looks and behaves like brand new, no obvious wear on it.

Updated to 4.4.3 soon after I booted it up, didn't have to do anything.

Fast and snappy.

With MX player app which is free I can play all my movies and TV shows from my computer. Video quality and smoothness is great as long as you use hardware acceleration. For DTS audio download the codec.

Cons: No rear-facing camera.

Sound volume from the speaker is really low. Maxed it out, did research online, downloaded apps to boost it, didn't do much, still way too low.

If I had known about the speaker problem before ordering it I wouldn't have purchased it.

If you want a tablet that has good speakers on it stay away from the Nexus 7. I read that the newer model hasn't fixed this.

Other Thoughts: Wireless was problematic at first, but I just removed the network and set it up again to fix it.

Just to give you an idea I get a max of about 13mbps down and 6mbps up on my home WiFi over the net with, and my internet is much more than that. More than enough for HD video streaming and browsing.

Charges better with the outlet adapter than with USB.

Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 - Hard Disk Drives - Black, 3 x 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low price when on sale.

Fan is relatively quiet, full size and easily replaceable.

SATA cables included.

Matches my black case nicely.

Cons: The HDD trays are plastic and a bit flimsy so some care is needed. It feels like if you jerked them open and shut without care you might break them.

Other Thoughts: Was looking at different options for my modest NAS, this one caught my eye.

When this is on sale, it's a great deal. Get a case with 9 or more external 5.25 bays and pop 3 of these in. Cheaper than similar cases with hot swaps built in.

Then get a MB with 10 SATA III connections like the ASRock Extreme6. Get one addon card with 4 SATA connections and you're good to go, you have a spare for an SSD and DVD/BluRay drive if needed.
