G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: These work as designed. I have never had a stick be too hot to handle with the heat spreaders. Lifetime warranty.

Cons: The heat spreaders *can* cause an issue in compact cases, but you probably shouldn't put ram like this in such a small case anyway.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 65 of these 2x4GB sets for our computer labs in July 2011, and I just had my first failed stick after 2.5 years. G.Skill replaced the pair within a week under the lifetime warranty.

Rosewill FB-04 Dual Fans ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with 1x Front 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 80mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -You can hide cables behind the back panel
-Plenty of bays for HDDs, plus SSD mount on the bottom
-120mm fan for HDDs
-Once you get your components in, it's solid

Cons: The case is super light, but also pretty flimsy. Forget looks when removing the PCI covers. And watch out for sharp edges. I have to agree with f3bandit with regard to UPS; I had to bend a few areas back into place. But once you've got the components in it's pretty good.

I mounted a SSD in the floppy drive bay, and the screw holes weren't quite high enough so I had to bend the tabs a bit to get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these cases for FreeNAS boxes, so they will both have at least 4 HDDs plus an SSD and this case provides ample space and cooling for them.

The blue power LED is super bright.

2 out of 5 eggs Works great when it works 02/07/2012

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-637AP Wireless Easy-N-Upgrader 802.11b/g/n and 802.11e up to 300Mbps

Pros: Simple web interface, easy to set up. Plenty of options available for setup. Dual antennas. Low price.

Cons: They do this weird thing where clients can't complete internet page requests until you go to a local address first. For example, newegg.com will time out. If I type 10.10.10.5 (or any other web-enabled device on my wired local network) into the address bar and load that page (it doesn't need to load completely), everything will work as expected for a few hours.

I could not get the Repeater mode to keep a connection for longer than 3 days.

Other Thoughts: I'm using twenty HW version 2.1 units and six Hardware version 3.0 units, with the most updated firmware. I've even tried downgrading the firmware to try and remedy some of the issues. The older HWv2 units seem to be more stable and have a better UI I think than the newer v3.0 units.
