Inexpensive, instant switching6/27/2020 11:32:02 AM

Pros: Very inexpensive 2-port USB DVI KVM. Switches instantly. Video quality is excellent (no different than without the KVM).

Cons: Appears to be sensitive to cable selection. When I first installed the KVM switch, the LCD display was discolored and had a bad flicker. I switched DVI cables and the LCD display is fine. I don't no the difference between the two cables.

Overall Review: Excellent value. After one day of use, it is working perfectly.

Boot times slower than my ADATA SU8006/7/2020 9:34:50 AM

Pros: Easy to install. No problems with system compatibility. Good price.

Cons: I have an HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini with two M.2 NVMe 2280 slots and one 2.5" SATA drive bay. I expected boot times to be faster from the XPG SX8200 Pro NVMe SSD than from the SU800 2.5" SATA6 SSD, but I found that boot times are 20% faster from the 2.5" SU800 SSD.

Overall Review: Inexpensive NVMe 2280 SSD from a reputable brand. Five year warranty.

Hitachi GST Ultrastar A7K1000: new, cool, error-free, inexpensive7/28/2019 10:51:26 AM

Pros: I purchased 5 of these (4 and 1 spare) for a RAID-10 backup system. After a recent lesson learned (the hard way) with "New" (NOT) Seagate drives from another NewEgg marketplace vendor, I ran a full suite of tests on the five drives. All five passed the drive tests. I can't comment on longevity or reliability, but passing all tests is a great start. In addition, these drives run relatively cool. So far, so good.

Cons: None

Correction for previous 2-Egg review: PSU works well with 8-pin CPU connector4/23/2019 12:33:58 PM

Pros: I previously reported that the Seasonic FOCUS 750 Gold did not work with my Biostar TH55HD Motherboard which requires an 8-pin CPU connector. I removed all cables and tried again and the PSU works as expected. The PSU is quiet. The semi-modular design includes the typically required cables as permanent attachments to the PSU with plenty of additional modular cables to be added. The 7-year warranty is comforting.

Cons: None. When I had previously reported that the Seasonic FOCUS 750 Gold did not work with an 8-pin CPU power connector, I must not have had all connectors seated fully. To install this PSU with an 8-pin CPU power connector, make sure that both 4-pin CPU power connectors are firmly / fully seated.

Overall Review: Works as advertised. Please disregard my previous 2-Egg review which incorrectly indicated that this PSU is not recommended for 8-pin CPU power connectors.

Shipped with wrong power supply and cracked lid6/4/2018 1:48:16 PM

Pros: At first glance, the laptop looks almost new. It comes with Windows 10 Pro pre-installed, so setup is as easy as turning it on and following the prompts. Joy Systems customer support website is easy to use (which came in handy for my return request - see Cons below).

Cons: - Shipped with wrong power supply: Final inspection before shipping is seriously lacking, given that the laptop has the large Lenovo/Thinkpad logo on it and the power supply envelop is clearly marked "HP 45W" The power supply connector doesn't even fit the laptop. - Cracked lid: The laptop arrived with a 1/2" crack near the right hinge. The lid bends at the crack each time the lid is opened and closed. It's a Grade B laptop, so I expected scratches and scuffs, but I did not expect any damage that would compromise the integrity of the device. This crack will continue to get worse over time each time the lid is opened and closed. This is my first experience with Joy Systems' refurbished laptops. Their online support was very easy to use and I have submitted a request to return the unit. I will update this based on their response and handling of the situation.

Overall Review: NewEgg processed my RMA request and is refunding the full purchase price and shipping (both ways). Since this is my first experience with NewEgg refurbished laptops and since I trust NewEgg and have always had a good experience with them, I would definitely try them again.

Great upgrade to extend the life of an old motherboard6/2/2018 7:21:20 AM

Pros: I installed the IOCrest SI-PEX40064 PCI-Express 2.0 Low Profile Ready SATA III card on my Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L motherboard. The old motherboard has an ICH7 chipset that does not support TRIM. With this card, my SATA III SSD boots fast and TRIM is enabled. Easy upgrade. Plug-n-play: no drivers needed.

Cons: None that I can see.

AGT ODB-II Code Reader - Link Errors11/17/2017 10:16:21 AM

Great for the price4/22/2017 4:13:19 AM

Pros: Inexpensive. Good airflow with 3 included fans. Included fans are very quiet. Motherboard mounting holes matched up perfectly with my ASUS Micro ATX motherboard.

Cons: - Motherboard mounts strip VERY easily. One of the pre-installed mounts was already stripped from the factory - switches and external connectors are on the top of the case. Convenient, but dust collectors. - 3.5" drive mounting is the opposite of what I expected. I had to install my 3.5" SATA drives with the power and data connectors on the right side of the case (when viewed from the front of the case). Not really a problem, but it's the opposite of what I'm used to. Access to the drive power and data connectors requires removal of the right case panel (the back of the motherboard)

Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3L 16007/28/2016 8:10:59 AM

Pros: works well in my Dell Latitude E6410 which requires DDR3 1333 1.5V memory.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Chose Crucial and the 1.35/1.5V memory because I had read that others had problems with their Latitude E6410 and 1.35V memory. Glad I went with this memory.

CORSAIR RM Series RM750 750W ATX12V v2.31 80 Plus Gold Power Supply7/24/2016 6:52:11 AM

Pros: Plenty of power for my system. Purchased this because I wanted a reliable, efficient power supply. I installed this in a system that needs to be operational 24x7.

Cons: After upgrading from a 500W Bronze PS to this 750W Gold PS, my system rebooted without warning multiple times. This did not happen with the 500W PS. I switched back to the previous 500W power supply and confirmed that the Corsair RM750 is the problem.

Update to 'Great performance at 1333'5/31/2015 7:52:27 PM

Pros: Previously, I indicated that this memory would run at 1333 in my Socket 775 GA-P45T-ES3G motherboard, but not at 1600. I have since installed a XEON E5450 (Socket 771 Mod) and upgraded the BIOS microcode for the 'new' processor. Now, this memory runs great at 1600 (CPU @ 3.6 GHz). Memory timings are auto-detected at 8-8-8-24 as spec'd.

Cons: None

Works great with iPad23/3/2013 3:15:36 PM

Pros: Pairs and works flawlessly with iPad2. Key and build quality is just fine for me - actually better than I expected.

Cons: Sometimes an initial key stroke is needed to "wake it up" before typing, so the first typed character is lost. Once you know to look for this, it's all good. Initial pairing took some time - not sure why. After the iPad2 discovered and paired with the keyboard, subsequent pairings are almost immediate.

Overall Review: I'm impressed with how much more useful my iPad2 has become with a keyboard. Most of my use is without the keyboard, but with the keyboard, my iPad2 is becoming more and more of a complete replacement for my laptop.

Nice upgrade - even from Freezer 7 Pro2/16/2012 12:26:20 PM

Pros: Reduced loaded CPU temps by 5-6 degrees C from the previously installed Arctic Freezer 7 Pro rev 1. Installed without removing motherboard from case, since my case provides access to the underside of the motherboard. My overclocked Q6600 G0 running at 3.6 GHz (9x400) never exceeds 61 degrees C under full Prime 95 load (4 cores at 100%). When running at 3.3 GHz (9x367), fully loaded Q6600 Rev G0 CPU temp never exceeds 56 degrees C.

Cons: Would have been easier to install if my motherboard was not already in the case, but was still able to install as described in "Pros" above. For 5 degrees C, would not purchase this at full price, but couldn't resist after instant rebate and mail-in rebate.

Overall Review: Even though the fan power connector has only 3 pins, my BIOS is automatically adjusting CPU fan speed. I changed my BIOS CPU fan control from Auto to Voltage (Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-P45T-ES3G). Fan operation is nice and quite - even under full CPU load. I used Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound and didn't even try the included Zalman thermal paste.

Best I've owned1/14/2012 4:17:21 PM

Pros: Auto restart after power failure Programmable humidity and fan speed Standard threaded hose connector for gravity drainage Quality caster wheels Relatively compact (compared to other units I've owned) Relatively quiet (compared to other units I've owned)

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I'm using this dehumidifier to maintain low humidy levels in my second home while I'm away. I installed a separate remote temp/humidity monitor and am pleased to report that this dehumidifier is maintaining the configured humidity level very well. Contrary to other reviews that you might have read, the fan does not run continuously. When the room reaches the desired humidity, the compressor automatically shuts off and then the fan shuts off following a delay. I am very pleased with this dehumidifier.

3DMark06: 15080. WEI: 7.211/17/2011 7:10:37 AM

Pros: Easy to install. Simply downloaded latest drivers from NVidia. Works perfectly with my OC'd Q6600 @3.3 GHz and my GA-P45T-ES3G Motherboard. Upgraded from an 8600GTS/256MB DDR3 video card and saw WEI go from 6.2 to 7.2 and 3DMark06 go from 6840 to 15080. For $60 after rebate? Amazing.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: My system config is as follows: Gigabyte GA-P45T-ES3G Motherboard Rev 1.3 Intel Q6600 Rev G0 C2Q CPU @ 3.3 GHz (9x367) 16GB Corsair Vengence 1.5V DDR3 1600 RAM Kingston 128GB SSD Windows 7 Pro x64

Efficient, Low Temps, Modular Cables11/16/2011 12:44:32 PM

Pros: I bought this as a spare when I saw the price with rebate. Great buy! Swapped it in place of another 600W supply to test it and noticed that my OC'd CPU temp dropped 4-5 degrees C. Looks like my case is cooler with this more efficient power supply. Also noticed that my 12V line remains solid at 12.4V when overclocking my Q6600 quad core at 3.3GHz. My other 600W supply drops to and fluctuates around 11.6V under the same load.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: This is my first modular power supply. It is a pleasure to connect only the required power supply lines in order to avoid case clutter. This is a great power supply.

400 FSB may not be possible10/24/2011 8:10:01 PM

Pros: A P45 Socket 775 that can extend the useful life of your Socket 775 CPUs.

Cons: I purchased a second one of these motherboards after successfully clocking my Q6600 Rev 0 at 8x400 (prime stable). After trying and failing to achieve a 400 FSB on the second board, I swapped motherboards so that all was identical except the motherboard. I'm not able to achieve a 400 FSB with the second motherboard. I've decided to use the second board to overclock an E2180 at 9x333, so not reaching 400 FSB is ok for me. Just a warning to you that achieving 400 FSB with this board may be a bit of luck.

Overall Review: If you want to achieve a 400 FSB overclock, you'll probably need a bit of luck with this board (and very good Northbridge cooling).

Cheap and quiet, but expected better cooling for the size10/21/2011 12:05:23 AM

Pros: Inexpensive. Quiet. For my Socket 775, installation of the backplate and mounting screws required access to the front and back of the motherboard, but once the backplate is installed, heatsink installation and removal is easy (without removing the motherboard from your case).

Cons: "Direct Contact Heat Pipes" don't transfer heat as well as a solid copper CPU mating surface (no surprise). What is surprising is that my smaller Arctic Freezer 7 Pro (Rev 1) which has a solid copper base and copper heat pipes and a smaller fan cools better than this (about 6-10 degrees C cooler on the EXACT SAME CPU). I expected better cooling from this heatsink given its mammoth size. It's BIG. Make sure you measure and have room in your case and on the motherboard (memory clearance, chipset heatsink clearance, etc.).

Overall Review: Was going to replace my Arctic Freezer 7 Pro (Rev 1) with this cooler to see if I could lower my overclocked Q6600 temps on air. After re-cleaning, re-applying Artic Silver 5 thermal compound and re-installing this heatsink a couple of times, I'm certain that my Arctic Freezer 7 Pro cools better. I switched back to my Arctic Freezer 7 Pro to cool my Q6600 (65 nm quadcore) and am using this to cool my OC'd E2180 (65 nm dual core).

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer, we are sorry to hear you are having trouble with our heatsink. Please make sure to double-check the fan speed when comparing performance on both coolers. No doubt the competitor had a higher fan speed as well as noise level than our 212 Plus. If the fan is set to low, it will not perform according to the reviews. If you have any questions regarding the set up of the cpu cooler, please contact us via the Live Chat link below. Respectfully - CMUSA Customer Support.

Cheap and quiet10/20/2011 11:48:54 PM

Pros: Quiet. Blue LED. Comes with nice looking speed controller that mounts in an expansion slot for easy access on the back of your case.

Cons: Fortunately I ordered two, because one of the fan speed controllers has an intermittent connection (isolated it to a bad solder joint). I only needed one (for now) so I used the good one.

Overall Review: For the price, can't beat it.

Don't be fooled by power specs - this is a good PS10/19/2011 1:48:33 PM

Pros: I purchased a Gigabyte GA-P45T-ES3G Motherboard (from NewEgg of course) to the extend the life of an aging Socket 775 CPU with a mild overclock (E2180 from 2.0 to 3.0 GHz). Initially, I used a Rosewill 500W PS. I experienced boot anomalies, so after some debugging, I replaced the Rosewill PS with an equally-rated (500W) Thermaltake PS. My system is booting and working perfectly.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: The 500W Rosewill current/power ratings for each voltage (3.3, 5, etc) were stated higher than those stated by Thermaltake for their 500W, but the boot problems that I experienced with the Rosewill PS seemed to be under-volt/under-current issues. I'm sticking with Thermaltake.

Wow - packs a punch9/14/2011 10:30:11 AM

Pros: Decided to get two of these since they were on sale for $90 each with free shipping. One would have been plenty for my 18' x 26' room with 20' ceiling and large openings into adjacent rooms. Creates crisp bass at low volumes (which is what I want), but can shake the house and your neighbors' houses (if that's what you want).

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Connected two of these to the two switched outlets and two subwoofer outputs on my HK 3390 receiver. Turned the subwoofer power switch to "On," so that the subwoofers power-up whenever I turn on my receiver. This subwoofer has an "Auto-On" option, but I didn't try it. As recommended in other posts, I connected each subwoofer line output from my receiver to the two line inputs on each subwoofer (required single female to dual male RCA "Y" adapter to connect the single subwoofer line ouput from my receiver to the L/R line inputs on the subwoofer.

Can't beat the price for what you get6/21/2011 1:37:13 PM

Pros: Got this board for $15 after Newegg discount and MIR. Combined with Athlon X2 250 and 2GB DDR2-800 RAM for a great little system. Mounted perfectly in my APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case. Does support SMART drives contrary to a previous comment.

Cons: None - how could I ask for any more for $15 (assuming the rebate is processsed)?

Overall Review: For me, having two PS/2 ports is a Pro, because it's compatible with my aging KVM switch.

Runs warm; can find better for less $6/21/2011 1:28:46 PM

Pros: Relatively inexpensive dual-core processor with full hardware virtualization support.

Cons: Not that you'll see much difference in performance, but the Athlon X2 255 can be found for less money. Processor heatsink is sized just right with no thermal margin. Make sure you have adequate case airflow.

Overall Review: Reduced processor temp by 10 deg C just by replacing stock heatsink compound with Artic Silver 5. In my mini-ITX case and at my room temp, CPU idles at 29C and hits 69C under full load (using OCCT stress test).
