Pros: Works perfectly, no problems after 32 months of continuous use.
Overall Review: I bought two cyberpower UPS, 1350PFCLCD, one quit working after 27 months, the other after 4½ years. Both had an internal clicking sound of some switch that was trying to reset, but could not.
Pros: Both had software, easy to install. No problems until they stopped working.
Cons: First one stopped working May 2014, after 27 months of use. Some kind of internal switch kept clicking off and on. The 2nd quit working in Fall 2016, after 4½ years of use. Same issue, but was intermittent for a couple of years. There was an internal clicking sound, off and on, so I unplugged it and waited, then plugged it back in and it would run for several months, then it would happen again. I have a powerful laser printer (NOT connected to the UPS !!!) that seemed to trigger clicking and resetting of the second Cyberpower CP1350PFCLCD whenever it was warming up to start printing. This is a new house with ample wiring. Finally, it just could not reset. Power almost never fluctuates or goes out in this new neighborhood with modern underground electric service. We get occasional lightning storms, which is why I have this UPS!
Overall Review: I apologize for complaining -- it seems like 90% of the reviewers are complaining when something does not work. I like to write positive reviews when something works right, to offset the chronic complainers, to give a more balanced picture. I would be willing to pay extra for a More Robust UPS.
Pros: My wife wanted a small computer, but I was replacing one that was nearly 10 years old and wanted to get all the latest gear. I got a micro ATX motherboard, which did limit the selection quite a bit. This is a shorter, wider case, but is not small. It is light weight though. It seemed complicated to open up completely, and the instructions were not entirely clear -- the front panel "pops off" and I kept looking for screws. I was not certain how much interior space was available for a cpu cooler, so I got a low profile cooler -- it turns out the motherboard sits horizontally in the case and there is plenty of room above the cpu. Once I figured out how to open up the case all the way, it was very convenient. I did not add any extra fans or anything, and it stays cool enough -- although I might upgrade the cpu cooler to a larger version, since now I know it will fit.
I am happy with the case... I got the white version and it looks good sitting on my wife's desk in the corner. Not exactly small, but more of a cube and very light weight and easy to move around. Plenty of room inside for more boards and fans and stuff.
All the wires were fairly well labelled, except one weird one that I think was some kind of high end audio cable, but the abbreviation did not match anything on my motherboard or the internet. The advanced audio had not been hooked up yet to the external case, so by the process of elimination I guessed that must be it. I probably will not use it, so won't be a problem.
Cons: Instructions not completely clear and pictures could not be blown up on website to get a better view. The instructions are black and white and the figures are small. I was hesitant to force the front panel because I was afraid of breaking something, but that is in fact the way it works... it "pops" out.
Overall Review: Yes, I would recommend it.
Pros: Has all the latest features. High efficiency. I liked the slightly smaller size which made it easier to fit into case. Cheap, efficient, modern, compact.
Overall Review: Definitely recommend.
Pros: It is amazing how Tiny this SSD is! Hard to believe something that small replaces a heavy, huge hard drive.
It is working great.
I have not done any benchmarking or anything, so I am not sure if it is working at advertised speeds, but it is plenty fast so far. It takes a little while to boot, because I put an intentional delay so I have time to het the "del" key and get to the bios!
It worked fine with my ASUS Maximus VIII Gene motherboard -- right out of the box with no special downloads or anything.
Overall Review: Definitely recommend the Samsung 950 Pro.
Pros: Very cool looking!
I was worried about whether the ASUS Maximus VIII Gene would support the latest Samsung 950 pro SSD with NVMe technology. IT WORKED FINE, RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. NO SPECIAL DOWNLOADS WERE NECESSARY.
Cons: No problems or defects so far. Very satisfied.
Overall Review: Definitely recommend this board to others.
Pros: Everything worked as designed. It has several options, but I used it as an Access Point on the opposite side of my house. I recommend it. Very sophisticated, for the price. Once I connected to the WAC120 with an ethernet cable and was able to log in, it was pretty intuitive after that. (See Cons below for instructions)
Cons: Communicating with it is tricky, because it has an odd default IP address (192.168.0.100) that the computer cannot usually access unless you go into your adapter settings for your LAN connection. I searched on the internet and found out how to do it. This way works in Windows 7 and probably most other Windows: (1) If hooked up to the internet by WIRE, Right click the icon in the lower right tray to open "Network and Sharing Center," then (2) click on Local Area Connection, (3) Click Properties in the Dialogue box that appears; (4) Double-click Internet Protocol Version 4; (5) click "use following IP address" and (6) I entered 192.168.0.210 -- enter whatever the user guide says for the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
(or in step 2 you can click on "change adapter settings" if you are connected by wireless network then select your WIRED network adapter, and proceed to (3). )
After that, you can enter the address in your browser (192.168.0.100) after connecting an ethernet cable from your computer to the WAC120 and powering it up, and it will pull up a login box (admin - password are the defaults). It took me quite a while to figure this out. Or, Search for "Change IP address of Network Adapter" on the internet and there are links that show the above process.
After you set up the WAC 120 Access Point, be sure to go back and change the Adapter properties back to "Obtain an IP Address Automatically. I recommend changing the WAC120 Access Point IP address to something like 192.168.1.65, and adding an Admin Password, so it will be immediately visible on your network without having to change the adapter settings, but cannot be changed by unauthorized users.
This may be a security feature to prevent someone (a child perhaps?) from randomly going into the Access Point point and changing the settings.
Overall Review: I would purchase the product again.
Pros: I have owned two Netgear R6300 AC1750's since Fall 2013. Zero problems. Fast. No drop outs. I saw a some complaints about the latest model "nighthawk" not having enough options. The R6300 has tons of options; I cannot think of any option it was missing. I think I bought the v1, but there was a little sticker on it that said v2, so I am not sure what I have -- am sure it works great. Saving all the settings in a file helps too. One did lock down during a lightning storm, but I just performed the reset and loaded the settings file from over a year earlier, and it has worked perfectly since. The directional beamforming antennae are really cool. Detects the receiver then focusses the signal.
Overall Review: Strongly recommended.
Pros: Works perfectly. No complaints.
Cons: Everyone only reviews to COMPLAIN. Including ME. I wanted to give a complement to items that work great. This is one.
Cons: Me. Everyone only writes to COMPLAIN, including me. Most newegg stuff works great, and I never review.
Pros: Working good. Just as advertised.
Cons: Everyone always writes in to COMPLAIN. I wanted to write in when things work.
Pros: Bought two. Both worked great for over a year.
Cons: Seemed to have a switching problem. I bought two and one still works; one failed, suddenly, for no reason. Would not switch back on. No external power problems. The other had major issues when my printer was connected to it -- kept switching on and off.
Overall Review: I think the base unit is very good. Software -- very good. Something is wrong with the on/off internal switch. Both had problems with being "oversensitive" ??? The internal computer thought there was a problem, when there was not?
Cyberpower has probably been alerted to the switching problem and has fixed it. I hate to complain, but I have two, and both had the switching on/off without reason problem.
Pros: Did what it said. I had problems with my home network at my new house already, so this was the next in a long list of complications. I got it to work.
For $29.95, what the heck do you expect? I think this product is just fine, and does everything that can be expected. It connected my wife's color printer with wired internet access to the Edimax, converting it to wireless, and I was able to connect, across the house, wirelessly, to my computer, through my wired / wireless router.
I mistakenly entered the IP address of the N300 Edimax, which was a mistake, then allowed Windows to "find" the printer, which it did. The address of the Edimax is different from the address of the printer to which it is attached. Windows succeeded to make the connection in spite of my mistakes! lol
Cons: for $29.95, there are no cons.
AND... there are no cons anyway. It worked.
Pros: I have been a loyal customer of Newegg for Many years and have told Many Many people about how efficient and good Newegg service is.
Cons: I tried to buy this laptop for my daughter, same last name. Newegg suggested a backpack carriers, so I got it too. A few minutes later my backpack order was rejected. I called Discover, they said they approved it, but then Newegg tried to duplicate the charge, so the duplicate was rejected. I figured, "At least she will get the laptop." WRONG. Two days later I get another notice the bank rejected my Discover Card -- impossible -- I have used it constantly since 1986.
So I repeated the entire order using a backup Visa. That order was rejected immediately. It is impossible to get Newegg on the phone so I am writing this review.
Overall Review: Unfortunately, I will now re-order, for a 3rd time, using somebody that is NOT Newegg. I can no longer recommend Newegg to anyone. What happened?
