Tek Republic TUH-200 USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 4-Port Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1 USB 3.0 port. 3 USB 2.0 ports. It is what it is.

Cons: ONLY 1 USB 3.0 PORT! I bought this while I was in a hurry, and didn't notice that of the 4 ports on this, 3 of them are USB 2.0 ports.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a 4-port USB 3.0 hub. Pay attention to what you are buying. The one time I didn't, I got this device. And to made the error more painful; I had purchased two.

Pros: Great at everything it is designed for. I bought two to speed the process of reading from one to burn to the other. Almost no coasters, and those were junky Magnavox brand from Office max (20 of 100 from a 100-pack. I stay with better brands now, no store-brand stuff either.).

Cons: One of these two burners I bought is no longer reliable at burning and has occasional read errors. It makes a high-pitch whining noise when in use. I can hear it even when the old in-wall air conditioner over my desk is active (and that thing is LOUD).

Other Thoughts: Considering that I have read and burned quite possibly several hundred (probably over 1000) dvds and cds with the two burners combined (I have the towers of empty 25, 50, and 100-pack spindle containers to back that up), I think I got pretty decent longevity from them. I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop (waiting for the other one to fail) and I'll have to get two new burners. This model cost me $27.99 in 12/2009.

Thermaltake CLP0579 120mm Contac 30 Intel LGA-2011 Ready 160W TDP Heatpipe Direct-contact Technology CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This heatsink/fan has kept my cpu cool for almost 3 years and is still quiet.
Great longevity and quality for the money($32.99 in 10/2010).
Glossy fan doesn't collect dust as much as the non-glossy fans. when the dust does collect, it's easier to notice and clean off the fan.

I used this with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Kuma 7750 2.7GHz Black Edition and could overclock to 3.0GHz and keep it stable.
When I upgraded to an AMD Phenom2 X4 965 3.4Ghz Black Edition, I overclocked it to a stable 3.9GHz. I put it though the Prime95 "torture test" for 24 hours and the temp never went above 57degrees Celsius.

Cons: The rubber fan mounts are somewhat difficult to deal with (however they do almost eliminate vibration noise from the fan).
The installation for this requires it to be positioned so that the airflow will be going toward the top of the case or down toward the bottom of the case. I wanted the exhaust to go out the back of the case, not up into my power supply or down onto my graphics card. The power supply gets warmer than when I had the stock cooler installed because of this issue.

Other Thoughts: I bought this after I bought the computer case (Rosewill Conqueror). If I had known about the installation issue in the "Con"section, I would have bought a different case where the PSU mounted on the bottom, or, bought a different heatsink/fan that aimed the exhaust out the back of the case..
