Nubia Z11 Mini Dual SIM Unlocked Smartphone (5.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I like the 5 inch screen. To me, it is the best compromise between convenience of portability and screen real estate.
This phone is plenty responsive for my needs, which are pretty basic, since I don't do games on the phone.
3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage is great to have. I doubt that I'll ever add an SD card, but the capability to do so is there.
The phone is thin and sleek looking. Solidly built.
USB type C is nice for charging.
Camera takes great pictures.
It's nice to have an FM radio, which seems to be missing from so many of the current phones.

Cons: You have to go into the Google app to turn on the LED flash initially. I thought my flash wasn't working at first, but the Camera section in the user manual provided the info I needed about turning it on in the Google app. This isn't really a con. It was just due to me learning my way around.

Other Thoughts: I bought this phone because my previous phone croaked. I was keeping my eye on the upcoming flagship models hoping one would have ad wireless and wireless charging, but since my phone croaked, I bought the Nubia Z11 Mini to get me through for now. I am quite pleased with the Nubia Z11 Mini. Great deal, especially when you consider that Newegg threw in free headphones and a clear case. I was planning to use this phone without a case because I liked its thin and sleek look, but it turns out that it is very difficult to pick up due to its thinness. Newegg kindly included the clear Nubia case and that solves the problem while detracting from the appearance a bit. It's probably for the best because the rear panel shows fingerprints pretty badly.

I'm using the Nubia UI for now, and it's working OK, but I may switch to the Google Now or Nova launcher in the future.

I haven't tried the fingerprint sensor so can't comment on that.

VIZIO SS2520-C6 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sound quality was quite good after getting everything set right. Music in particular is very good.
Easy setup.
It has the ability to turn off automatic shutoff. Press the power and volume down buttons for 5 seconds to turn off auto shutoff. You have to use the buttons on the unit to do this. Using the buttons on the remote won't do it. I appreciate this because now I don't have to turn it back on several times a day after it shuts down due to a period of inactivity.
All cables are included for whatever style of connection you might have.
I had no problems programming this unit into my universal remote using code 1702.

Cons: The connections in the back are recessed, so they are difficult to see and access.

Other Thoughts: This unit does not have an internal woofer, but bass is quite good regardless. I have a sub woofer, so I hooked it up, but I have it turned way down. I think many customers would be happy with the bass on this unit without adding a sub woofer.
I used this unit to replace a Bose Solo, which cost $400 a couple of years ago. This unit is quite a bit better in spite of it costing far less. Music in particular is much better than it was on the Bose Solo.
I installed this unit by itself on a separate shelf because I didn't want to raise my TV any more than it is now. Putting it under the TV would be a nice space-saving move if you don't mind having the TV two inches higher.
TruVolume is strange. It's supposed to reduce volume variations, but I found the exact opposite to be true. When I turned TruVolume off, volume level was perfectly consistent.

PNY CS1311 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Fast and Trouble-Free So Far 04/24/2016

This review is from: PNY CS1311 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD7CS1311-240-RB

Pros: Advertised speeds and longevity are quite good.
Low price for the size of this SSD.
Installation went well. No problems so far.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had been running a Samsung 840 Evo. The PNY drive seems comparable to the 840 Evo in operating speed. The unknown is just how long this drive will last, and I won't know that for a while. So far so good. I am hoping this drive will last until Optane storage becomes available.
