Crucial 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT102464BF160B
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Newegg handled exchange/refund easily and quickly.

Cons: Defective! Twice!

I've bought a variety of Crucial RAM during the past 20 years, with excellent results. But not this time, and I don't know if the problem was completely Crucial's. Did Newegg contribute?

Bought the first stick for a new Gigabyte Brix PC. System locked within 30 seconds. Luckily I had an identical PC that had been operating perfectly for 4 months. Swapped the new RAM into the known good PC, and it also locked within 30 seconds. Aha! Swapped a known good RAM (also Crucial, identical part number) into the new PC, and it was perfectly stable.

Clearly documented the problem and my troubleshooting, and asked Newegg for an exchange. No problem, except for the 10 day turnaround. New RAM arrived, plugged it in, and got IDENTICAL SYMPTOMS. Troubleshooting gave IDENTICAL RESULTS!

So did Crucial produce a bad batch, or did Newegg ship the bad RAM back to me? Whatever the problem, I hope it was just an honest mistake.

But the "fool me twice, shame on me" rule now applied, and I asked for a refund, which Newegg provided. Ordered the identical Crucial RAM from a competing vendor. It is working perfectly!

Tek Republic TUH-3400 Aluminum USB 3.0 4 Port Hub with 3A Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Includes AC power brick. Solid build. Reliable.

Cons: Short USB cable, about 3 feet, as is the case with almost every hub.

Other Thoughts: Great value. Fast USB 3 speed, offline charging for smartphones, and an attractive appearance.

Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC (DVD Case)

5 out of 5 eggs Works well for me... 01/05/2014

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC (DVD Case)

Pros: Works reliably in the background, making daily incremental backups across my home network.

Cons: Need a separate license (copy) for each machine, unlike in the earlier days of True Image.

Other Thoughts: When I read this terrible reviews, I really can't understand why people have so much difficulty with True Image. I've used it or years, upgrading regularly, and now use 3 copies of TI2014. I don't try anything exotic - backing up 3 PC's over my home network, scheduled daily, including automatic validation. Never tried the "Secure Zone", "Try & Decide", or cloud features, just image backup and restore, image mounting, and file browsing. I have rarely had a problem caused by True Image. In those rare cases, if an image fails to restore, I have several daily and weekly previous backups to fall back on.
