Rosewill RHSP-13007 Rotating Power Surge Block, 180° Rotating 12-Outlets, 2-in-1 Power and Circuit Breaker Switch, 4230 Joules - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: very affordable (got it for $10 AR) for a 12-outlet surge protector; long cord; rotating blocks; good voltage suppression, assuming the rating is accurate.

Cons: the quality of construction and material seems a little cheap at the suggested price of $35

Other Thoughts: this appears to be the same model as BELKIN BP112230-08 and Minuteman MMS7120RCT (with the exception of the coax/phone protection) that sell for $35+ at NE

HP 15-d053cl TouchSmart 15.6” Touchscreen Notebook with Intel Core i3-3120M 2.53Ghz, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 750GB HDD, DVD Burner Super Multi, HDMI Out, Webcam, USB 3.0, No Operating System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: fairly inexpensive for a 15" laptop with an i3 processor (has hyperthreading); better performance than similarly priced laptops with Pentium or Celeron processors; appears new with zero dead pixel; install your own OS, without any bloatware

Cons: not very solid feeling (the back of the LCD lid flexes); the HDD is not accessible through the service door--you have to remove the keyboard and upper cover to get to the HDD; I know it's debranded and the "generic" decal over the hp logo on the back is removable, but hp actually buffed out the hp logo under the sticker so it's ugly with or without the tacky (no pun intended) "global" sticker

GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-2807 (rev. 1.0) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Small footprint; easy installation; absolutely silent (obviously); sips power; ideal for HTPC

Cons: mine died on day 2 (could not into get into bios) and is stuck in the service/developer mode; performance is so-so (was not as snappy as my 2-year old Acer Aspire One notebook which is equipped with Celeron 877 (only 1.4 GHz and no Turbo) - maybe the single-channel memory is the limiting factor; wish the enclosure is made of aluminum instead of cheap-feeling plastic;

Other Thoughts: installed 8 gig of DDR3 and a 120 GB Zalman SSD in mine
