Most Favorable Review

Great SSD with lots of bang/buck!

Intel 665p Series M.2 2280 1TB PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 3D3, QLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW010T9X1
Intel 665p Series M.2 2280 1TB PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 3D3, QLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW010T9X1

Pros: Rock solid standard 1 Tb M.2 NVMe SSD Better MTBF than other brands Attractive price point.

Cons: It didn't install itself...

Overall Review: I've been using this drive in a MSI Z390 motherboard with 64 Gb RAM and i7-9700KF. It replaced a Team 1 Tb SATA 2.5" SSD that had been in the system for about 6 months. With the use of EaseUS Disk Copy software, the transfer of data to the Intel SSD was seamless. When it finished, I removed the SATA drive and rebooted. The Intel drive, in the motherboards #1 M.2 slot, booted rapidly and has operated without issue for the last few weeks. Boot time was improved and large file writes show the greatest advantage from the NMVe drive. I have not benchmarked the drive but other reviews have confirmed the Intel advertised specifications.

Most Critical Review

One of two has issues.

Team Group MP33 M.2 2280 256GB PCIe 3.0 x4 with NVMe 1.3 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) TM8FP6256G0C101

Pros: Bought two of these SSD drives and one corrupts when used on a RPi 4B as the boot/OS drive... however, it may be the enclosure it's in. Need to debug further before pronouncing it flaky.

Cons: One works great, its twin has issues... more debugging needed before I return for swap.

Overall Review: Yes... overall, I've had great results with Team SSds.

Great thumb drive.

Samsung 128GB FIT Plus USB 3.1 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 300MB/s (MUF-128AB/AM)

Pros: I have several of this series and have had great service from them. They are fast in a USB 3.x port!

Cons: None

Overall Review: Highly recommended. I've even used these as "drives" for Raspberry Pi 4 SBCs. They are about the same speed as a SSD due to USB limitations on Pi 4 models. Work great as general thumb drives as well.

Great multifunction printer

Pros: Easy and fast setup. Very good quality printing. Reasonable operation costs. The 1200 dpi dot resolution does well on gray scale and graphics.

Cons: Its big...

Overall Review: For a multipage document scanner to letters, this printer does it all. I've used every function except FAX and it does everything I've thrown at it. WiFi setup was a breeze. Highly recommend this MFC-L2780DW model.

It works...

Pros: It's a nice looking cable and it works...

Cons: Doesn't do the dishes.

Overall Review: Works...

Easy to install SSD...

Pros: The "gum stick" M2 SSD enclosure is easy to pop the SSD into with snap apart construction. I installed a small 512 Gb TEAM SSD and it worked well. Have used it as a backup and as a RPi 4B boot/OS drive. One of the two I got has issues on the Pi where the data corrupts. I think it's the SSD and not the enclosure. The other, identical, unit works great in the same use.

Cons: Need to debug the SSD/enclosure to figure if the SSD or enclosure is flaky.

Overall Review: Yes, good price and good performance.

Idea 27" QHD monitors... great bargain and image quality

The monitors (2) arrived faster than expected and in great shape. The boxes contained the monitors, stands, power cord, and Display Port cable. As I used a dual monitor stand, I didn't use the included stands, but they appeared sturdy. The monitors bolted to VESA 100 mm. mounting plates with 4 mm screws, which were not included as the OEM stands snap in. I hooked one monitor up with HDMI and the other with Display Port. The monitor has two of each type available. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the monitors had internal speakers that I hadn't noticed or expected at this price point. They give reasonable sound but, of course, are not theater sound quality. The images on both are outstanding when driven by the internal video of my i7-11700K system. I expect they would look even nicer with a video card that can drive them at their 100Hz refresh rate. The Intel on-board video only goes to 60Hz with dual monitors.

A cheap SATA SSD enclosure

Pros: Cheap! Cons: Cheap... The case is a little flimsy and does not work as a boot drive with Raspberry Pi in a USB 3.0 port. I suspect you can get it to work with "quirks" or on a USB 2 port but either ruins the reason for going to a USB 3 external SSD - SPEED. It does seem to work fine under Windows as a data/backup drive, so it's not a total waste.
