HIS HHDMI4071 DVI to HDMI Adapter for HD4K Series
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs Not as Pictured 06/25/2014

This review is from: HIS HHDMI4071 DVI to HDMI Adapter for HD4K Series

Pros: Converts single-link DVI to HDMI

Cons: The picture shows a dual-link DVI connection. The delivered product is NOT a dual-link DVI connection.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed that they would ship a product that doesn't match the picture.

Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD20EFRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have 12 of these (11 RAID6 + 1 hotspare) and absolutely love them. They run 24/7 in a file server and have had no problems.

- Detected immediately by RAID controller (Areca 1882ix-24).
- Good throughput. I easily keep a gigabit network connection flooded (reading or writing).
- Good reliability. Had them for 2 months and no issues.
- Decent temps (31 C when spinning).
- TLER (or CCTL) command is a must-have for any serious RAID.

Cons: Availability has been scarce until recently.

Other Thoughts: It appears that availability is improving. When I bought them a couple months ago they were scarce. That problem seems to have been remedied as production picks up.

Others have had reliability problems. My 12 drives have been perfect. HDDs tend to be a bit of a crapshoot, but if they get up and running for a couple weeks then they will usually last. Go into it with realistic expectations that you'll get a dud every now and then.

iStarUSA IS-26 Industrial type of Ball Bearing Sliding Rails with Length 26
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: These guys racked up in an iStarUSA WO15AB without breaking a sweat. The motion is smooth, construction quality is high.

Great customer service. When Newegg incorrectly shipped without the mounting hardware, I called the manufacturer. Matt in the customer support department got me squared away in record-breaking time and had the replacement hardware in the mail 24 hours later.

I will be a lifetime customer of iStarUSA based solely on the great customer service.

Cons: Would be nice if they packed a couple extra screws and nuts. Good thing the hardware store had plenty :)

Other Thoughts: Newegg showed an unprecedented ability to mess up shipping on 2 of the 4 rails I bought.

2 shipped correctly.
1 shipped missing ALL the mounting hardware.
1 was damaged during shipping due to bad packing.

As someone else noted, Newegg does not pack these adequately and therefore they are subject to damage in shipping. The product itself is great if Newegg can get their act together.
