Great for it's purpose!

SONY VAIO Duo 11 Intel Core i5 6GB 128GB SSD 11.6" FHD Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook/Tablet (SVD11223CXB)
SONY VAIO Duo 11 Intel Core i5 6GB 128GB SSD 11.6" FHD Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook/Tablet (SVD11223CXB)

Pros: Small, 1080p screen, Great Color, Light, Touchscreen, Stylus. Basically It is like a Macbook Air when it comes down to specs. Slightly heavier, slightly thicker but it has a touch screen and stylus that makes it a little more versatile. I have had this for 6 months almost and I use it almost everyday. People thinking of getting this must know that it is not like normal laptops. -The screen is great at 1080p and the colors on it are amazing. Backlit keys are awesome for dark places and I also use it for light gaming. -Playing Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 on this thing is quite good thanks to the Intel 4000 onboard videocard. -I also use this for some light Photoshop usage and works great for that as well. -The USB 3.0 ports are nice and paired with an USB 3.0 HDD it flies. -Built in card reader is also great to have. -Quiet even when fan is on -Doesn't get hot at all even after 4 hours of play -Nice metal stylus feels solid -Computer itself is solid

Cons: Not really cons but some gripe. -I wouldn't use this as your go to laptop because the keyboard needs a little getting used to. In my case I use it as my everyday laptop. -The pop out legs doesn't really change the angle of the laptop much but helps a bit. -the pointer on it is great but always looses place when I lift my finger off -Battery life lasts about 3:25 minutes for me with wifi browsing, photoshop and some word documents and excel editing.

Overall Review: I would get this again if I had to. Needs some getting used to but great for travel and business except for the battery life issue. Will be getting the extended battery pack as that has a slot for the stylus pen. Never knew they made 'aaaa' batteries. Yes not triple A but quadruple A battery for the stylus.

Great specs if it worked!

ASRock X570 PHANTOM GAMING-ITX/TB3 Mini ITX Thunderbolt 3 AMD Motherboard
ASRock X570 PHANTOM GAMING-ITX/TB3 Mini ITX Thunderbolt 3 AMD Motherboard

Pros: -TB3 -RGB if you are into that

Cons: Arrived DOA. Tried different sticks and slots, but it just would not post. Luckily I was deciding between this motherboard and the more expensive ASUS VIII Impact and had both in hand. The ASUS had no issues booting right up and this one was DOA plus somehow the IO shield had been bent like it was dropped on the corner. The item was supposed to be new so someone at Newegg or at the asrock factory messed up and dropped the motherboard on its' corner

Overall Review: Would have worked for my needs but the item just didn't work out of the box. I've had other asrock stuff and yes I know they are a subsidiary of ASUS but it seems quality check and build quality aren't the same.

Great cooling!

LIAN LI GALAHAD AIO 360 RGB WHITE, Triple 120mm Addressable RGB Fans AIO CPU Liquid Cooler

Pros: Replaced the h150i Pro I had to this just for aesthetics. Could not be happier as it looks nice and runs cooler (about 4 degrees) in my OD11 White case.

Cons: -RGB cable does not fit properly onto my motherboard. Not sure if it's the cable supplied or what but ended up just using the included wired remote and set it at static white. -One fan started rattling but reached out to Lian Li and the next day they emailed me back saying they are sending out a replacement.

Overall Review: Customer service is great. I have a TU150 case that had a clip break and customer service sent me replacement clips quickly! Now on this cooler one fan is acting up and they are sending me a replacement fan as well. Response was fast and great.

Does not work

Team Elite 64GB (2 x 32GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model TED464G3200C22DC-S01

Pros: 32gb per stick @ 3200 speed

Cons: -Does not work in GS66 -System stutters with these ram sticks -random BSOD

Overall Review: Trying to contact newegg but their hours are not right, says phone support is available until 5:30pm PST but I called at 4:30PST and it was already closed. Not trying to get a customer service agent to chat with and currently on queue for more than 40 minutes. I have emailed teamgroup to see how they respond to this issue and hopefully someone gets back soon. Otherwise I will have to file a claim with my credit card company.

Great with some caveats

Pros: Fast on a mac! Includes all the things you need and easy installation.

Cons: Slow on a PC and gets hot. No thermal pads

Overall Review: So tested this on a razer blade 15 advanced 2019 and macbook pro 15 2019. The Razer had read of 1800 and write of 900 even after enabling performance settings in the drive properties as suggested on wavlink's website. On a macbook however it was totally different story. It was giving me speeds near what my 1TB EVO+ was rated for with read speeds of 2800 and write speeds of 2200. Just amazing! You want a thermal pad as it does get hot and luckily I had some Fujipoly 1.5mm ultra extreme handy from adding thermal pads into my razer and used those. Prior to using the thermal pads the thing was almost too hot to touch but now it's nice and warm. Definitely get some quality thermal pads to help with the heat as the heatsink itself isn't enough.

Wow is all I can say!

PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 5700 XT 8GBD6-3DH

Pros: -Quiet -Fast compared to 1070 -Small!

Cons: -Kind of hot

Overall Review: Upgraded from a 1070 in one of my machines and one thing that struck me was the size of this thing. It is small compared to the recent behemoth offerings from GPU vendors. This was the size of about a RX 580/570 reference board. T he temps got warm but after a fan curve adjustment it's running at 60 degrees under load! Amazing!
