Most Favorable Review

All around great 6th generation security appliance, put in many Sonicwalls and this one is fast enough to handle Google Fiber

SonicWall 01-SSC-0213 TZ400 Gen 6 Firewall (Hardware Only)
SonicWall 01-SSC-0213 TZ400 Gen 6 Firewall (Hardware Only)

Pros: Boat load of features, very secure, lots of flexibility if you know what you're doing.

Cons: This is not the first Sonicwall I've gotten from Newegg, but this one won't register and the mysonicwall.com site says that we must contact greymarketprevention@sonicwall.com to resolve. So I need to contact them and figure out if I need to return this thing or what. But this will probably be my last Sonicwall purchase from Newegg.com as I don't have time to mess around with this kind of stuff, and I don't like shady things to save a few bucks. This is the only reason I don't give 5 eggs.

Overall Review: Would recommend only if you know what you're doing and have prior Sonicwall experience. Also, beware of this grey market thing, you may want to buy direct from dell or another supplier.

Corsair Neutron Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-N256GB3-BK
Corsair Neutron Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-N256GB3-BK

Pros: Fast

Cons: Unreliable, premature failure.

Overall Review: After using both OCZ and Samsung SSD's for customers to install as the Windows boot drive, I was happy with SSD performance and reliability. So I decided to try the Corsair line as I like other Corsair products. So this one began locking up the computer. It wouldn't lock it up like a crash, but it would be doing very little, the system would freeze for a minute or so, then go on working. This kept happening randomly. So I imaged this drive over to a standard Seagate hard drive, installed it in the system, reconfigured Win7 so it knew there was no longer an SSD there, and since then (month ago) this system is running great with no more lockups. Stay away from Corsair SSD's, I will not buy again.

Not quite up to the standards of my past purchases from Joy Systems

DELL Grade A Laptop Latitude E5470 Intel Core i5 6th Gen 6300U (2.40 GHz) 8 GB Memory 512 GB SSD 14.0" Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 1 Year Warranty
DELL Grade A Laptop Latitude E5470 Intel Core i5 6th Gen 6300U (2.40 GHz) 8 GB Memory 512 GB SSD 14.0" Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 1 Year Warranty

Pros: - really good deal. - laptop condition overall better than average. - no issues with shipping, delays, etc.

Cons: - grade was listed at A. One of them is grade A. One has laptop skin applied to the entire palm rest area, which must be pretty worn. I'd rate this one a B+. The third one has skin applied to the palm rest, the track pad, and 85% of the keys. This one would rate no higher than a B. - The power supplies are all total Chinese trash. Not genuine Dell like Joy has done in the past, and they are all the 'old-school' Dell P-10 that are large with the rounded ends. They feel so light and cheap, I doubt they last more than a few months. VERY disappointed with these.

Overall Review: Overall, if the power supplies do last and I don't have to replace under my own cost for my customer in a short amount of time, then I would recommend this deal. If not, then I'd lean the other way. Definitely not true to the description of these laptops that was written, that's also very disappointing. I expect better from the folks at Joy Systems.

Avoid these at all costs

CORN Silver Mini Keyboard & Mouse With RF 2.4GHZ Wireless Connection by a USB Nano Receiver, and Super Thin Design
CORN Silver Mini Keyboard & Mouse With RF 2.4GHZ Wireless Connection by a USB Nano Receiver, and Super Thin Design

Pros: They look good, and that's it.

Cons: I ordered 8 sets of these for a customer. We wanted the white/silver look for a dentist office that also has white monitors, etc. When I installed them, we could not get two sets working, one had a bad receiver, and the other was a bad keyboard. Corn shipped me two replacement sets, and now the customer has had another receiver go bad, and another keyboard and they've only been using these for two weeks. These are absolute trash, and I'm going to have to refund the customer and purchase units from Logitech so I know they will work and not break.

Avoid at all costs, Arris will blame Time Warner

ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: None whatsoever.

Cons: This one is bad out of the box, I had it for a bit over 30 days before I could get Time Warner out to troubleshoot why I was only getting 120mb downstream, and the Time Warner tech spent about an hour making sure every thing from a signal strength and noise ratio standpoint was good, which it was very good. The onsite tech had his level 3 support on the phone when he couldn't get it any faster. TWC said the modem wasn't registering properly on their end, and said it need to be replaced. I then called Arris to get a warranty replacement, and they flat-out refused, saying it was working fine, and that I may not be getting 300M download speeds from TWC. TWC was just here checking it, and they say it's the modem. The Arris person was argumentative, saying I needed to buy one of their newer modems for higher speeds, each time going back to that suggestion after I informed them that is unit is 300M download capable. So in reality, there is absolutely no warranty on these, you are up a creek if you can't return this to new egg before the 30 day window is up.

Overall Review: I will never ever buy another Arris product or recommend them to anyone ever again.

2nd Corsair SSD, seconnd failure

Corsair Force Series GS 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F240GBGS-BK
Corsair Force Series GS 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F240GBGS-BK

Pros: Fast

Cons: Unreliable

Overall Review: OK, so this is my second Corsair hard drive purchase for a customer. This one was installed into a high-end Dell Precision as the C: drive/OS drive, and a standard hard drive was setup for the D: or data drive. After I had installed this one, I got calls from the first customer I set one of these up for, and they were having lockups. So I've been wondering about this one. Well, today it died a painful death, and we cannot boot this computer. BIOS won't see it, my laptop won't see it as a USB drive (with connector). As I write this, I'm praying that a mirror restore will work to a standard hard drive for this customer. I've setup an RMA, but it will do me no good as I now have no confidence in these drives and will not even consider putting the replacement back into production. I've bought OCZ and Samsung SSD's for customers, and those are all working fine, and are over a year old. Neither of these Corsairs are over one year old. Stay away. I really like Corsair's products over all, but will NEVER buy another SSD from them again.

Close, but not quite

The Dell 3050's are fine, decent shape. The two glaring issues are the SATA SSD's they used and how they installed them. The SSD's are a brand I'd never heard of, called Super Talent. They are so slow I'm better off installing traditional hard drives in these and cutting my losses. The other thing that is really dumb is they just used duct tape on the inside to "mount" the SSD's. They didn't even install a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter to properly mount them. Just very disappointing that I will have to re-do all these myself to make them good enough to sell to my customers. After putting in a quality SSD and and adapter to mount, I will lose money on these. Never will I buy from this seller again.
