Excellent product

Wavlink 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub with 2x1.5A Fast USB Charging Port, 48W Power Adapter, Peripheral Sharing Switch, LED indicators, USB3.0 Splitter Up to 5Gbps for Android, Apple iOS, Windows Mobile Devices

Pros: This Wavlink 10-port USB hub replaces two smaller ones and centralizes devices connected to my desktop. In that regard, it provides more space and makes connecting devices easier. This device also has two charging ports, which I have not yet had occasion to use. They will come in handy sometime for sure. The cords are plenty long for my purposes as well.

Cons: This device works well with my desktop, so there are no cons whatsoever.

Overall Review: This is another excellent Wavlink device among those that I have purchased, and it makes me look to Wavlink for other devices to meet my needs in the future.

Most Critical Review

Not easy to work with

ASRock Z590 PRO4 LGA 1200 Intel Z590 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock Z590 PRO4 LGA 1200 Intel Z590 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Prompt delivery as always from newegg.com. Excellent packing as always. The rgb on the motherboard puts out nice light. The motherboard looks good out of the box.

Cons: After 20+ years of building every desktop I have owned and using ASUS motherboards exclusively, this is the first motherboard that would not boot. With no intentions to give up, I will keep trying.

Overall Review: For me, this is a really challenging motherboard. Maybe I just made a bad choice.

Excellent card

SAMSUNG EVO Plus 256GB microSDXC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model MB-MC256KA/AM
SAMSUNG EVO Plus 256GB microSDXC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model MB-MC256KA/AM

Pros: This card went straight from its packaging to the expansion slot on a Galaxy S9, which expanded the storage from 64 gb to 328 gb in an instant. Now all of the photos and videos go to the card and the phone no longer sends warnings about too little storage capacity. This makes for a more pleased user.

Cons: It might be good to include on the packaging a note that the card needs no formatting before being paced in a phone. Some users might be unaware of this.

Overall Review: This is an excellent card for a good price that works fine in a Samsung phone. Every phone should have such an expansion slot to allow users to upgrade the storage on their phones as they wish.

Terrific drive

Western Digital WD Blue SN550 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G2B0C
Western Digital WD Blue SN550 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G2B0C

Pros: This is my third m.2 drive. Like the other two, the biggest challenge is securing the drive with the small screw. Once installed and formatted and recognized by Windows, it functions smoothly. I am not one to run tests to determine read/write speeds. so I cannot address such concerns. It works fine for me and that is sufficient.

Cons: Could they find a slightly larger screw?

Overall Review: Excellent product!

Excellent memory...

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Memory (Desktop Memory) Model CMK16GX4M1A2400C16
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Memory (Desktop Memory) Model CMK16GX4M1A2400C16

Pros: This is excellent memory for my desktop computer. As I am not a gamer, the speed is not an issue.

Cons: It works fine, so there are no cons to include.

Overall Review: In a previous desktop I used Corsair memory that worked flawlessly, so I decided to stay with this brand. It works fine for me.

Nice purchase

Dell Chromebook 11-3120 Celeron N2840 2.16 GHz 4 GB 16 GB eMMC Flash Chrome OS Laptop Grade A
Dell Chromebook 11-3120 Celeron N2840 2.16 GHz 4 GB 16 GB eMMC Flash Chrome OS Laptop Grade A

Pros: This purchase was to replace a two-year-old Android tablet that was not functioning so well. The performance and convenience of this Dell Chromebook is much better. The 4GB of RAM are crucial in this regard as my tablet has only 2 GB. The speed of this Chromebook is fine for my purposes. The ac wifi was crucial for me as well. Movies and videos play smoothly. Also crucial for me is the grade A of this refurbished product. Mine has no noticeable marks of any sort and everything so far works fine. It is well worth the cost.

Cons: The screen could have a bit more contrast, but one cannot have everything considering the price (under $100).

Overall Review: If you want to surf the Internet, this machine will perform well for you.
