EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Just Fabulous 04/02/2014

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter

Pros: I have installed quite a few of these around town and have had no issues to my knowledge with any of them

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have not tested throughput vs range so I do not know how well they perform distance-wise.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None. Died relatively fast.

Cons: This is my experience: I have purchased 2 - OCZ refurbished SSD's in the past 8 months and both have died. I would be extremely cautious purchasing their refurbished products as it appears to me they have NOT resolved the problem(s) that caused the failures in the first place. In other words, if one of their devices fails and OCZ takes it back - "refurbishes" it - and then puts it back into the marketplace for sale - and it dies again - they very likely did NOT understand what caused the failure to begin with and have yet to address it. Just my two cents.

Other Thoughts: I have not had any issues with new OCZ products. Let the reviews here and at other places on the Internet guide your buying decision.

Also know that ALL electronics, independent of brand and model, have failures. Product reviews can help you discriminate between good and bad but not always. Sometimes it is just a roll of the dice.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX120G 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Super fast while it worked

Cons: This is the 2nd refurb OCZ drive I have had this year to die at 6 months(different models). This one shows in BIOS but not in Windows "Disk Management".

Thanks be to Carbonite.

Other Thoughts: I run a break/fix pc repair shop. Will not ever buy OCZ refurb again. OCZ chose to put a weak/defective product back into the "for sale" pool when they could've either fixed the problem with it OR simply trashed it and moved on. Now I have a headache on my hands.

Something is wrong with this model. Pay attention to the reviews.
