Pros: Great distance and speed. Sometimes you have to add the DHCP server MAC address on the guest network to the broadcast exceptions for DNS to work.
Cons: Slight learning curve using the Unifi software if this is your first time setting these up.
Overall Review: I install many of these and they have always worked well.
Pros: Works with all NVME SSDs I have tried. Samsung, HP, Plextor, and Hynix.
Very fast. Saturates USB 3.0 and 3.1 speeds.
Comes with 3.0 and 3.1 cables.
Cons: A bit tedious to switch drives frequently, but that is to be expected.
Overall Review: I purchased to test and transfer data to and from NVMe SSDs. Works as advertised. I would buy again. I have purchased many ORICO external drive cases and they have all worked. The clear cases help in identifying what is inside without having to open it.
Pros: Seemed okay while it worked.
Cons: Corsair RMA department said I sent back a 2.5 inch tray instead of the drive and will not replace. It's a scam. Corsair does not honor warranty. Do a search for Corsair RMA issues before purchasing.
Pros: Came with latest firmware.
Came with power adapter.
Cam works as expected.
Overall Review: I recommend PoE Depot and will buy from them again. These cams are a pain to setup, but they work well. I use some with PoE, some with adapter, and some on wifi and they all work great.
Pros: Great discs. Verbatim is usually best. Burned about 20 discs with no problems on a Pioneer 2209.
Overall Review: It looked like this item was on sale for cheap last week. It also looked like it came with a free gift card, which I did not care for. The item was on sale, but not that much less because I was charged 20 bucks for the Shutterfly gift card. Newegg should stop cramming the junk "promotions" and concentrate on good customer service, which is what they started with years ago.
Pros: small, wall mountable, large grid for air cooling, long power cord.
Cons: blue lights are too bright AND they shine out the air cooling grid.
Overall Review: I have no idea how well this could work because I don't want to pay for time warner for a better plan. I already pay $60+ per month for standard Internet from time warner. I was getting 16/1 Mbps with my 12 year old SB5101. With this SB6141 I get the exact same speed. I hoped I would get the advertised 20Mbps speed but no, not with time warner San Diego. A few years ago I had the $12 per month speed boost, where you get about 24Mbps for the first 7 seconds of downloading, so I know they could give me better speeds if they wanted, but I do not download for 7 seconds. I upgraded because I want faster Internet if time warner ever increases standard speeds, like most other cable companies already have. I also like to have a backup and my trusty SB5101 is waiting for this new arris modem to die, but the SB5101 is not wall mountable (take apart and drill holes in the case).
Pros: I do not own this monitor. I own other NEC monitors and they are awesome, so that's why I gave 5 eggs.
Cons: The response time specs do not match the NEC website, nor the NEC spec sheet (PDF) for this monitor.
Overall Review: This monitor, EA224WMi, is specified on the NEC web site as having a 14ms response time even though Newegg has it at 5ms. If anyone purchased this from Newegg can you please confirm that it is 5ms? I really want to buy it, but only if the response time is 5ms.
Pros: there is somewhat of a interesting plot and the graphics are okay except for the scenes where they talk (sync/lips don't move). The HUD is pretty cool and easy to use.
Cons: The controls are bad. multiple keys for a single action, same key for multiple actions (cover/open), stuck in third person view, awkward views when behind an object, cannot turn while running, bumping into objects moves the character, cannot jump (only "vault" over certain objects), cannot duck or crouch unless you are behind cover, if you change the bindings, the on screen hints show the default keys so you have no idea what to do. The list goes on. I'm glad I didn't pay much. always out of ammo too. If you still want to play the game just remember it is an RPG. It is not even close to a FPS. If you are looking for realistic action, this is not it. If there was no action and it were only drama and cool sci-fi stuff it would be better. If you put action into a game the controls should be usable.
Overall Review: The game physics are not bad, but they are not realistic at all. I suggest playing the game at a friends house before buying.
Pros: Runs cool. Great price. Got my rebate. Scores 5.9 in Vista 64 (off the chart). Had zero problems in 3 months.
Overall Review: Running on DFI x48 with E8500. Change timings and voltage and it works great. This isn't the best RAM for overclocking but it is not meant to be. Do your homework. Corsair has a RAM selector on their web site, simply plug in your motherboard and it spits out the RAM you need for overclocking, performance, or cheap. They also have a compatibilty list. These aren't my first sticks of Corsair XMS series and they probably won't be my last.
Pros: I can get a few high end games to max out one core, but the games run great with zero problems and very fast loading times. Database and number crunching software screams, especially when using both cores. Amazing chip.
Overall Review: Why overclock this? What doesn't it do at stock speed? This is a low voltage chip. 1.4 will burn it up. My temps run 32 idle, 42 under heavy load. Running it on a DFI LANPARTY DK X48-T2RS.
Pros: Faster than expected, as quiet and cool as I knew it would be.
Overall Review: I have purchased hundreds of drives and Samsung has always been a good choice, but this is my fastest Samsung yet.
Pros: Very light, doesn't cut hands, very few rivets - mostly screws, many thumbscrews, plenty of space, Web site sells options like panels with windows and larger hard drive stackers, the fans are surprisingly quiet, The lights are not too bright, and the hard drive rubbers are great!
Cons: On the front there is no bracket so if you push on the front panel too hard it will hit the reset button. I put a square of plastic there and problem solved.
Overall Review: This is my favorite case ever. Worth every penny. I put in a DFI LANPARTY DK X48-T2RS, ZOTAC 8800GT @660, PC Power & Cooling 610W, C2D E8500, CORSAIR 4GB DDR2800 6400C4DHX. Everything fit well.
Pros: great picture quality, fast on and off time, small (not ultra compact) and light makes it easy to carry, Image Stability works with digital zoom, 6x optical zoom.
Overall Review: This replaces my Canon S20 (3.2 megapixels xmas 1999). For all those complaining about battery life, either buy the camera that suits your needs (4x AA for flash performance) or do your homework and get some Sanyo Enloop rechargeables. They are awesome. Image Stability, optical zoom and lightweight (with only 2 AA batteries) was why I purchased it. 7.1 pixels cover all my high res printing and web needs. What a great camera.
Pros: decodes all unencrypted channels, plenty of in/out connectors (2xHDMI and 1xVGA are nice), picture quality is great. No bad pixels.
Cons: speakers do not handle bass very well. hookup external speakers if the tv is used for theatre (in the living room).
Overall Review: I play 1080i movies over the VGA from the PC and it is great. DVDs are acceptable and analog cable is better when you are not sitting 12 inches fron the screen. I have not tried any airwaves, games over VGA, or DVI to HDMI. I like it, no regrets at all.
Pros: Nice tilt and swivel. Adequate on-screen controls. Has quick change mode button (standard, gaming, text, photo). Viewing angle is better than expected. USB hub works great. No bleeding and the backlight is very even.
Cons: Shiny like glass so it reflects light. No height adjustment.
Overall Review: I got no dead pixels. The reflecting is not that bad and well worth the performance over the dull matte finish of other monitors like my cheap dell. The ghosting in games is minor. It took me about two days to get used to it, now I don’t notice any ghosting at all. I didn’t go widescreen due to some games not playing well in widescreen.
Pros: no connectivity issues after 8 months in a multiple network environment. open source firmware. lots of bells and whistles. High security compatible.
Cons: Even with new firmware, syslog stops recording complete logs after one day.
Overall Review: I see friends using Lyn#$ys and they reset every few days. I wrote the original review coming from a USR 8054, and i have no regrets. still running strong and using AES. I like it a lot.
Comments: I bought this to replace a USR8054 which always rebooted. The Asus WL-500G Deluxe does everything as advertised and runs rock solid. You can even change the antenna strength. The Printer is only USB on the deluxe, but you can use a web cam and/or ftp server also. It's the only device that all my wireless devices could connect to. The Beta firmware is great, but if you need it to work perfectly, stick with the latest stable release.
