DELL Latitude E4300 [Microsoft Authorized Recertified] 13.3” Notebook with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, 160GB HDD, DVDROM, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Periodically batches of these computers get taken off lease and are available for resale. I chose this offer over a few others because, 1) Authorized Recertified which includes a fresh installation of Windows 2) 4GB RAM + 160GB HD 3) 64 bit Windows 7. Other offers had lesser RAM or HD or 32 bit Windows or cost more. It does have n standard WiFi and Bluetooth. It is a rugged computer that is modest in size so it is easier to pack around. Since there are a number of units out there, replacement parts are easier to find than some other laptops.

Cons: It comes with an after market charger which is not necessarily bad. However the plug in to the lap top feels looser than it should and I have had it slip out on its own. It has 1 USB 2.0 socket and 1 shared USB 2.0 socket so you are probably going to need an add on USB port extender. Battery life is slightly under 2 hours with the battery pack supplied.

Other Thoughts: I bought this particular model 2 years after my brother purchased another off lease one so I had a chance to be familiar with it. Newer versions are not that much improved compared to what you pay for this. I bought this to fit in between what I use my tablet for and what I use my desktop for. I needed a laptop for only a limited number of situations so it didn't make much sense to buy new or buy with just now features.

Rosewill SL-300TFX -300-Watt TFX12V Power Supply - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Dimensions 02/24/2016

This review is from: Rosewill SL-300TFX -300-Watt TFX12V Power Supply - OEM

Pros: I was needing an upgraded power supply for an Enlight 7180 case. This was the closest in dimensions that I had found.
The measurements I made when I received it are: H 55.5mm/2.2" (not including the fan protrusion which adds 8mm/0.3") W 83.6mm/3.25" and L 145.5mm/5.75" This agrees with the dimensions given in the sales description. See below for further thoughts about this. It has an 80mm fan.

Cons: I had expected the unit to be longer which would require cutting off a tab but it is also not as high and not as wide. That is why actual dimensions were important to me. A number of the power supplies listed as TFX and SFX have non standard shapes and sizes and some of the dimensions given don't agree with the picture of the unit.

Other Thoughts: Still, it is 300W and has a 24pin motherboard connection where the Enlight had only 150 watts and a 20 pin motherboard connection. If I don't find anything that comes closer to the dimensions I need, I may just modify the case to make it fit.

ORICO 2588US3-BK  Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a small inexpensive enclosure for a 2.5 HD. I used it initially with a HD from a dead laptop and then bought a 1T Toshiba HD to use it for data storage. As such it compares well to the retail Western Digital External Portable Drive I have. It has a USB 3 plug but it does come with an approximately 18" long cable. There are several solutions that are cables with interface if you need a temporary means of connecting a 2.5 HD to a computer. However this is 1) cheaper 2) portable to permanent in use and the drive is protected 3) can be switched out to a new HD if needed . The data indicates that the max size it will read is 1T.

Cons: Orico offers several colors for these units and sometimes there can be a difference in price. As a result, I have bought both Black and Silver units. However, the color is only on the bottom, not the complete unit. So if you have one on your desk, it is going to look black anyway.

Other Thoughts: It's cheap enough and seems to work. You could pay more for just the USB 3 cable.
