Pros: Easy hookup and it performs like a champ. This is an older computer, that was getting slow. Took almost 80 seconds to boot before installing the SSD. After installing it, boot time went to around 30 seconds on a cold boot.
Cons: There is nothing provided with this SSD. You have to get your own screws, cable and caddie.
Pros: Easy to use in the store. Print it out and it will have all the information needed to use it. Also you can show them the email, so you could save paper. Spend just like money, so you save $5 for every $50 in gift cards that you get. That makes it worth 10%.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Overall Review: If you like saving money this is worth it to buy, There is no expiration date or any fees to use it.
Cons: This cord is not long enough to connect anything, unless the router is right next to the device you are trying to connect. Also it is hard to get it to disconnect. Had to use pliers to get this accomplished. Nice that they put a protective plastic piece over the connector, but it hinders in getting in disconnected.
Overall Review: Pay more and get a better patch cord. Also get one of 2 feet or longer.
Pros: Will turn on your lights, by schedule, app and smart home devices (Echo or Google Home). Way cheaper the Belkin and TP Link similar devices.
Cons: Must get the right app for these to work. Easiest way for this is thru their website and not the app store or play store. Instructions are lacking, but get the job done. App is like the instructions, lacking.
Overall Review: Overall it's the most cost conscience plugs made. Has lots of features which I'm still learning. Instructions don't give you a lot of detail, so be prepared to play with it. If you don't mind fiddling with them, they work well. I would buy them again instead of ones made by big name companies.
Pros: Can tell you if you leave your door up. Will notify you when the door is opened and when it is closed. Works with other smart home devices, so for example you can ask Alexa or Google to open your garage door and it will. The makers of this have excellent responses to your questions. Even if you don't own one they will answer them for you.
Cons: Instructions say you may need to send them one of your remotes for them to modify for it to work with your opener. Must be handy with installing things, not that this is hard.
Overall Review: Easy to install. Would recommend this to anyone who wants access to the features it offers, knowing if your door is open, able to have it work with smart devices and allowing you to open the door from anywhere for someone to get into your garage.
Pros: Does math for you. You just have to input the numbers as it will walk you through where to enter the data. Don't have a disk to throw away later on. You may have a file on your computer, but it can be deleted whenever you are sure you don't need anymore. Comes with a free state.
Cons: Having to do taxes in the first place.
Overall Review: Easy to use and does the calculations for you. Updates itself every so often. These updates so far haven't affected the amount you owe or get
Pros: Phone looks like new. Works like it should and isn't iCloud locked. Holds a good charge. No scratches on screen. Fast shipping to boot.
Cons: None so far
Pros: It was cheap. Worked for a little while. Like 4 months. Now it gives me code 10, Device can't start.
Cons: Even when it worked it didn't work with all devices. I couldn't get a USB flash drive to work with it. I downloaded the latest drivers when I installed it. Firmware 184.108.40.206 and driver 220.127.116.11. Lastly when trying to uninstall the driver it only repairs it. I went to the Control Panel to uninstall it. So I would pay more and get a better quality USB 3.0 card. Also the driver page is in a foreign language. So you better know what card you have and the model number of it. Newegg gives this away at times. Even then it is not a good deal.
Overall Review: For the price you pay it is not worth sending this back. It would cost more than what it cost. If you are going to buy a USB 3.0 card, don't get this one.
Pros: Runs as it should using iOS 6.1.6. You can access all of its features and have lights come on at set times. Easy to set up and works as it should.
Cons: Doesn't work so great with Android 4.4. It runs like it should the first time you set it up. Then after running the app a second or more time, some of the tabs, settings and rules only say Loading, and never load. So it becomes useless after that except for turning the light on or off. Don't think I want to pay money for a switch to turn the money off, or else I would buy a clapper!!
Overall Review: App for Android needs work. On iOS it runs just fine. So Apple users will be happy. Android users beware. Set it up the first time and then have to completely uninstall the app, and set the switch to factory setting to get back into the setting or rules again.
Pros: They have a good sound to them. Like most home theater systems you will find something missing. You will hear things in the background you never heard before.
Cons: Midrange is lacking. Others sounds are true to life.
Pros: Thicker wire than what you will get at Radio Shack. Does the job and the price is right.
Cons: Wish the ends were included with the wire. No big deal as twisting the wire does the job too.
Pros: The Netgear firmware works, but the range of the wireless signal wasn't very good. It seemed to hiccup when asking it for data. I took the plunge and installed the DD-WRT firmware and OS. Now it runs fine and the blue light everyone talks about is no longer lit. The range is exceptional and it doesn't hiccup. Before doing the DD-WRT changeover, read the forums and learn about DD-WRT. It is an easy change, and well worth it.
Cons: Netgear firmware and software leaves a lot to be desired. The signal was weak and you would have to wait for it to get the information you requested. Also the blue light would never go out.
Overall Review: Got it for $20 and it was well worth that. Especially now that it is running DD-WRT
Pros: Had great range. Easy to setup.
Cons: Will last a few months and then it dies. It is no longer listed under current products on the Rosewill website. They had a new firmware for this router, that didn't take.
Overall Review: Had one for about 6 months and it died. Sent it back and NewEgg replaced it. That one lasted about a year. Feels like it is cheaply made. Buy something else and save your money.
Pros: Works as stated. Does what I wanted it to do. Windows will find the drive and it works as a USB drive.
Cons: Is a large enclosure.
Pros: Runs fine and is a step up from what I had. Doesn't hiccup when giving it a full load of stuff to do.
Cons: Not as fast as Intel but not as expensive either.
Overall Review: Good deal as a combo deal
Pros: Runs everything I have. Has some extras I wasn't aware of. Amount of ram you can install with this motherboard. Fast shipping and documentation was first class.
Cons: No HDMI, no esata
Overall Review: Good deal without the rebate, better deal when it shows up.
Pros: Works like a charm. I had little trouble getting it to work. Hasn't lost a signal yet. Haven't had to reboot it either. The range has improved over my previous router by quite a bit. Also I now have N instead of a G. Encryption was also beefed up and doesn't bother the range or signal.
Cons: Does get hot. Had a problem at first, but once I figured out it was me who was putting the wrong number in the router, then all worked fine.
Overall Review: The best router I have owned so far. I thought my previous router was good, till it started dropping the signal every so often. Lots of features to set if you want to take it farther.
Pros: Works as stated. Will get files to and from most hard drives hooked up externally.
Cons: Feels cheaply made, so can't say how long it will last. For now all is good, I don't use it very often
Overall Review: Good solution for getting files off or on to an internal hard drive without installing it in the computer.
Pros: Works fine for the price you are paying. Everything works as stated.
Cons: Limitied features, but what can you expect for $20.
Overall Review: You will have to buy a processor that runs at 533 to get this motherboard to work,
Pros: Has enough power for a small Internet computer. Not for gaming. Will deliver for you and get your computer up and running.
Cons: None, just don't add lots of addon to the computer and expect this power supply to handle them.
Overall Review: Has all the power outlets you need for a modern computer. Not that strong on output, but then why buy this if you need more output.
Pros: Installs easy, and does what I needed it to do. Works as specified, albeit not as fast as SATA, but plenty fast for me.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Fast shipping!
Pros: Works as specified, and got the right kind by using the newegg website. Fast shipping!
Pros: Easy to install, has the latest drivers and bios included. Worked with my memory and video card. No problems!
Overall Review: Has lots of extras that you would have to extra for with a more expensive board.
