Most Favorable Review

Amazing features, simple configuration

Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch Lite 24 Ports Wall-Mountable Fanless Switch with Optional DC Input - ES-24-LITE-US
Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch Lite 24 Ports Wall-Mountable Fanless Switch with Optional DC Input - ES-24-LITE-US

Pros: Without reading the documentation, I was able to rack, power on , and configure a team/trunk in less than 5 minutes. It took me longer to update the Intel NIC drivers to be able to configure the team in the OS than it did to aggregate the two ports. I used dynamic LACP. I did update the firmware first.

Cons: None yet. This Lite model does not have PoE, but I knew/wanted that.

Overall Review: I am a Cisco guy. I'm not a fan of other brands of switches. I honestly can't say how many failed Netgear and DLink switches I've replaced over the years. I finally decided to buy a managed switch for home use and almost went with a Cisco. Professionally I've used Cisco & HP switches mostly, so I was planning to use one of them. I decided to give this Ubiquiti switch a chance, and was going to return it if there was an issue. For home or small business use, you can't beat this switch. Configuring a Cisco switch is no small task. This is simple using the included GUI. You don't need that Unifi adapter for this model. This has enterprise features for a low price. You won't be disappointed. It's awesome.

SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model T800UX2GC4
SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model T800UX2GC4

Pros: Good RAM, fast timings. I had to manually set timings in my BIOS, but works great.

Cons: After 6 months, 1 of my modules died.

Overall Review: It is after the 90 day RMA period for Newegg, so I have to go to Super Talent directly for RMA. I have faxed them, called them, and no response. It also appears that their tech support dept is 1 guy.

T-Mobile DOES work...

Nokia Lumia 1520.3 Unlocked Cell Phone (US LTE Bands) 6" Black 32GB
Nokia Lumia 1520.3 Unlocked Cell Phone (US LTE Bands) 6" Black 32GB

Pros: The two previous negative reviews appear to be from the same moron. This model is the one which works with T-Mobile US. It's unlocked and has all the bands for T-Mobile 3G, 4G, LTE. 1520.3 = RM-938. My unit from Newegg was brand new, never been powered on. Call counter at 00:00:00. While this is an expensive toy, it is worth it to me. Best phone ever.

Cons: Most of these models suffer from some touch sensitivity. I turned mine down from high to normal, which helps.

Overall Review: This phone is incredible. The battery with normal usage lasts me 3 - 4 days. This is far better than my Nokia 925.

Color Settings

Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV
Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV

Pros: Follow-up to previous review.

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: An extra thought to all of those who got this for Xmas. Upgradable firmware is available from Toshiba.ca site. Firmware is exact model specific, IE: 40RV525U VS 40RV525R VS 40RV525RZ. Check your System Info before upgrading. Color settings need tweaking, and my suggestion is: Preference Mode Contrast: 60 Backlight: 45 Dynalight: Off Brightness: 65 Color: 37 Tint: 3 Sharpness: 8 Dynamic Contrast: Off Static Gamma: 0 Temperature: Cool - B Drive: 1 - G Drive: -1

Amazing

Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV
Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV

Pros: This TV is simply amazing. Yeah, it's 60 Hz & 8ms, but considering the price, it can't be beat. It weighs less than 40 lbs. No dead pixels. 3 HDMI, 2 Component, optical out. The picture quality is great considering its spec's. All around good TV for most anyone.

Cons: If I have to write a con, it might be that the stand is not adjustable. Doesn't matter for me as I have it mounted to a wall mount with an articulating arm.

Overall Review: I bought this TV to hold me over till next year once the LED TV's are a bit more stable and not edge lit. I'm a big Samsung fan, but this Toshiba is every bit as good as my 60 Hz Samsung and is much better on price. [Just saw this morning the price went back up.] Newegg shipping is awesome [box in a box]. Keep your eye out for price deals as the Holiday Season continues.

POWMAX Demon PSDE580 580 W ATX 2.03 Power Supply
POWMAX Demon PSDE580 580 W ATX 2.03 Power Supply

Pros: It powered my system for a while.

Cons: The PSU died after 3 years. I am actually impressed that it lasted that long, but is cle arly out of warranty.

Overall Review: I bought this PSU for a Powmax Demon case back in 2004. It ran for 3 years without problem. Remember that this only has 1x 12V rail, and cannot power most modern systems. The fans died (seized) and that's why it failed. The Powmax fans in the case also died quickly. After replacing them in the PSU for the 3rd time, the PSU finally died. Replaced with a 750W CoolerMaster PSU. You get what you pay for.
