ORICO Tool-Free USB 3.0 & eSATA to 2.5" and 3.5" SATA External Hard Disk Drive Lay-Flat Docking Station [Support 8TB]- Black
ORICO Tool-Free USB 3.0 & eSATA to 2.5" and 3.5" SATA External Hard Disk Drive Lay-Flat Docking Station [Support 8TB]- Black

Pros: The replacement circuit board did not work in this Windows 8 computer where it worked before. I tried it on another and it did the same thing with the old board. I tried it on a Windows 7 computer just to be sure after reading a post below,and the new circuit board worked on the Win 7 machine.

Cons: I brought it back to the Win 8 machine and same error again. Reading a previous post that said the rest were inexperienced just reload the drivers? I checked and uninstalled and let windows reinstall on restart and no luck. Went to the Acer website and downloaded the driver but, unlike my HP which did need an updated newer driver last year to work correctly, this Acer had no newer drivers. I downloaded it anyway and ran it. The Orico started working again. I switched out the circuit board with the old one and it still would not work but then the new one still did. Apparently the failing one corrupted the driver and the Win 8 USB 3 drivers needed to be reloaded which really makes no sense.

Overall Review: My thanks to AcIDc0r3 below as his reload idea did work. Being a tech for years it absolutely makes no sense that it should work one minute and then fail the next however. I could understand if it failed on first try. I amended my rating and commend the Orico customer service person Yuki for getting the part to me. Now I just hope it does not fail again.

Packaging more impressive than the headphones

Bluedio T3(Turbine 3rd) Wireless Bluetooth 4.1 Stereo Headphones - Black
Bluedio T3(Turbine 3rd) Wireless Bluetooth 4.1 Stereo Headphones - Black

Pros: Super nice packaging, well done design and workmanship. These look great. They have a magnetic catch on the cardboard box. The fit and finish is heavy and solid.

Cons: I already had an Arctic Bluetooth headset I got from Newegg years ago: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1K63V17482&cm_re=arctic_bluetooth-_-9SIA1K63V17482-_-Product I received my Bludio headset today and charged it up then connected to my phone. No issues with setup but the sound was horrible. The Bass was muddy and overpowered the rest of the audio on my music loaded on my phone. I thought it might be the phone somehow that made it so. I got these to use with my UHD TV in our Home Theater/Living room. I am retired and stay up later than my wife and hated watching with the sound turned down with no punch. I loved using the Arctic super light "on ear" BT set. When I tried these out, I was sorely disappointed. I switched back to my ul;tra light cheap set, and they are still crisp and full with great bass but not over colored in favor of the bass.

Overall Review: I checked the return policy and it appears I would have to ship them at my expense and they add insult to injury by extracting another 15% re-stocking fee. As if I was responsible for producing these poor performers. I have Yamaha Sound Projectors, 2 of the YSP 800s still pristine, and with the Yamaha matching subs. Also some Bose SoundLinks, two minis, one Color, and one Soundlink III. My wired headsets are Bose and it appears I need go shop for their wireless sets too. I have full surround in the HT as well as companion IIIs on my computers. These Bludios aren't in the same league as the skull candy cheap headsets at Big Lots. I took two stars off for the terrible sound and one star for the uncomfortable way they press their weight on top of my head. I would not recommend these to anyone. I am staying with my clean sounding Arctics for now and will try before I buy next time. It is not the money, it is the disappointment after reading glowing reviews of ythe bass and good sound. I never stayed long enough to get any real difference in the muddy sound with or without their 3D effect. I paid $35 for these and I see why they marked them so low. I was curious after seeing Bludio knockoffs of the Bose SoundLink Mini's. I will avoid all things Bludio by mail. I recommend you do too.

Good ones great . . .

Rosewill Replacement Toner Cartridge for Brother TN450 TN-450 TN420 TN-420, 5200 Total Page Yield, Black Ink Compatible with Brother Laser Printer (2-Pack)
Rosewill Replacement Toner Cartridge for Brother TN450 TN-450 TN420 TN-420, 5200 Total Page Yield, Black Ink Compatible with Brother Laser Printer (2-Pack)

Pros: When it's a good one these are excellent, and as good as the stock toner. Easy to R&R, and good for the environment.

Cons: I had one that printed extremely light, but readable. I have no idea what the problem was. I had one of these two packs in reserve, but decided to wait until it ran out. Well after a year of light copies I swapped out and was glad I had it on a newspaper as it had leaked a little toner. However, it prints wonderful blacks and crisp dark letters again.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend these for the price with a two pack on sale. Light or dark I received more then the number of pages promised. Unlike ink, these don't dry out when not used for a while. I have a Brother DCP7065 multi-function printer I bought on sale with Newegg I also highly recommend. I prefer to have a network printer that connects to my router via Ethernet rather than printer wireless radios. With these toner cartridges it just keeps chugging along fr the last 7 years or so.

Mine's on the way!

HP Desktop Computer 6305-T A8-Series APU A8-5500B (3.20GHz) 8 GB 500GB HDD Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit
HP Desktop Computer 6305-T A8-Series APU A8-5500B (3.20GHz) 8 GB 500GB HDD Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit

Pros: I couldn't build this for the money and the one year warranty is the icing on the cake. I decided to build or buy a full size system as a spare I could sync with my main system. I'm an old Computer/IT/techie so have a bunch of 1&2TB drives I removed when I upgraded systems to SSDs. I also have a thermaltake drive dock to clone with. So it will get a 2TB drive free. I also have several wireless Logitech kb and mouse sets I'll put one on. I have both Wireless adapters for Internal PCI as well as this USB AC adapter https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6PF3C99704 It does have a display port and one other reviewer said it could only connect Video via VGA?? Hey! Display port is a plus and if your monitor is so old it has no Display Port, then just buy an adapter like this one: https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=Display+port+to+HDMI&N=-1&isNodeId=1

Cons: None as of now, I will update this review if I find any real issues.

Overall Review: If the refurb company with the one year warranty is responsive to any questions issues I'd look for their products in the future and recommend them.

Failed

Rosewill Armer 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure, Supports 9.5 mm HDDs Up to 1 TB, USB 3.0, SATA I / II | 100% Screw-Less Design, Plug and Play, RX100-PU3-25B
Rosewill Armer 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure, Supports 9.5 mm HDDs Up to 1 TB, USB 3.0, SATA I / II | 100% Screw-Less Design, Plug and Play, RX100-PU3-25B

Pros: Nice looking case, easy to install the drives. Very visible indicator light.

Cons: I bought three, only 1 works.

Overall Review: I am finding that USB3 cheap items tend to fail in that they are not recognized by the computers. I am experienced and can't tell if it is cabling or the circuit boards. I have 9 computers here all running Windows 10. All recognize my WD Passport external 2.5 drive. None recognize or work with the two that failed. from the two notebooks to three. I bought four of their earlier model enclosures and none of them worked past the first tryout. Even at $7 -$10 they were combined. These were still in warranty. The other four were not and the deal was my fault for thinking it was just one until I needed them. I had them stored in plastic boxes in my office with drives in them and only now needed to use them. I got the one that I needed critically.

Not impressed

SYBA USB 3.0 UASP Dual Bay Hard Drive Docking Station with Duplicator Support SY-ENC50071
SYBA USB 3.0 UASP Dual Bay Hard Drive Docking Station with Duplicator Support SY-ENC50071

Pros: Nicely set up. I decided to order two. I like the rocker on off switch over the buttons that so often are just hot glued and comes loose. They look good, and read the drives fine.

Cons: It kept losing the connection while trying to do a System image in Windows 10. After the second hour's delay and two stalls, I swapped out the dock using the same USB3 cable and plugged in my two year old Thermaltake single dock, also USB 3.0. The image was done in less than a half hour and no hiccups. I ordered two of these Syba docks on sale waiting for my new house to get done. So they stayed in the old house unopened for two months before I had my new office set up. Otherwise I would have RMA'd them. I will stick to Thermaltake from now on and eat these two.

Overall Review: Maybe they will clone drives, but I did not buy them for cloning as I do that rarely. I sure wish these had worked for the first task I tried to do with them. I will try their website and see how their support is on in warranty items. I will update this after that.

Can't review, Not received

I may have to rethink my purchasing from the Newegg marketplace. I have been a customer for a very long time and ordered much of my customer and my own office equipment and supplies from Newegg. I am used to shipping being surprisingly fast. I have ordered from Chinese direct vendors at another big online store with receipt in a week two max. I ordered this item 14 May and it is now 7 June, 24 days later. On my invoice it said 5-15 days. I just chatted with Newegg online and was told since this is a marketplace issue I needed to contact the vendor, and Bella gave me their email address. She said to get back with Newegg if there was any further problem. I emailed them and will report back
