Solid Adapter

Alfa AWUS1900 802.11ac Dual band 2.4/5 Ghz Wi-Fi USB Adapter AC1900 1900Mbps
Alfa AWUS1900 802.11ac Dual band 2.4/5 Ghz Wi-Fi USB Adapter AC1900 1900Mbps

Pros: - Price - Dual band ac190 - Beamfoaming - Solid quality made adapter

Cons: - None

Overall Review: It is had been great on Windows 10 installing drivers from the Alfa's website. Setup, connected and stays connected with no problems. Paired with a TP LINK Archer C2300 Dual-Band Wireless WiFi Router. Tried Netis ac1200 had nothing but connection problems, disconnects on the 5ghz band on the Netis. No problems with this Alfa AWUS1900. The 3.0 usb cord is thicker, heavier than most and maybe 4'.

Ran Great till Day 32 It Died

HGST Travelstar 7K1000 HTS721010A9E630 (0J22423) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive (Standard Model) Bare Drive
HGST Travelstar 7K1000 HTS721010A9E630 (0J22423) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive (Standard Model) Bare Drive

Pros: - Price - Storage capacity

Cons: - Flat out died day 34 - 2 days after Neweggs standard return of product expires

Overall Review: MY first and last HGST branded drive. Ordered for a customers repair which is embarrasing enough. His OS was on a SSD, this HGST drive was his storage drive for games etc. Locking his laptop up completely with it installed now. Any attempt to run drive test freezes & locks up. Docking it into another pc locks the entire pc up also. Day 34 it craps out, just wonderful. And no, I do not recommend this drive or HGST.

Garbage

NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5 dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS
NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5 dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: - Price

Cons: - Constant disconnects, and most of the time no connection on the 5ghz band

Overall Review: Did NOT buy from Newegg. After screwing around with this Netis ac1200 for a week, "I'm pulling the plug and taking back to local store. Windows 10, downloaded latest driver from realtek, uninstalled, reinstalled multiple times, reinstalled netis software (and unistalled. ) Will not stay connected on the 5ghz band. Sometimes will not connect at all. All other the devices in house stay connected so not a router problem. Done screwing around with this trash.

Poor Quality Cheap Design

DIYPC Gamemax-W White Dual USB 3.0 ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case with Build-in 5 x Blue Fans (2 x 120mm LED Fan x Top, 2 x 120mm LED Fan x Front, 1 x 120mm LED Fan x Rear), Water Cooling Ready
DIYPC Gamemax-W White Dual USB 3.0 ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case with Build-in 5 x Blue Fans (2 x 120mm LED Fan x Top, 2 x 120mm LED Fan x Front, 1 x 120mm LED Fan x Rear), Water Cooling Ready

Pros: Price was right until I received, and had my eyes & hands on it. Nice finish to outside and inside of case. 4 Fans were 3 pin which were directly connected to fan controler. 1-4 pin molex to power the controler and fans. Rear fan connects via motherboard 4 pin.

Cons: Definitely smaller than "full tower" case. Should be listed as mid tower. Some rookie 1st day on the job pre-wired this case from factory. Fans are weak. 1 of the 2 preinstalled 120mm fans in the top of case is covered almost 3/4th's of the way by top lid of case. 1 of the 2 intake fans up front ALSO covered by front of case. So you are really only getting 3 LED fans, for 2 are useless. Appears to have a SSD mount on backside of motherboard, which makes no sense right near backside of motherboard cpu location. Far right standoffs for ATX are useless, support the board by hand when plugging in 24 pin power. Extra header cutouts for case headers (audio, usb's power switch etc) are covered completely by ATX board. Second row of header cuts out from top to bottom near right side of motherboard are covered completely by ATX board also. ATX board extends almost touching DVD Drive, THATS how small this case is. ATX board sits exactly even with top of psu on bottom case. This was for a customer that chose his case based on price. I'll know better next time, never DIYPC again for me. Not worth $79 really OR regular price of $129? I'd be embarrased to sell this case as a company even for $40

Overall Review: Removed front and top foam exhaust filters to help maybe with air flow. Removal of these foam filters are the worst also. Top exhaust fans do not need it anyway. All supplied case fans are weak, need to purchase stronger cfm fans. What would help air flow is to dremel out the entire round rear exhaust perforated 120mm case holes opening up air flow exhaust, install a good cfm fan and a wire grill guard on the outside. And while your at it dremel out the front top fan perforated restrictive metal on the inside to. No, I would not recommend this case. Newegg, you need to pull this product from your product line.

Excellent Full Tower Case

ROSEWILL ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case, Supports up to 420mm Long VGA Card, 5 Fans Pre-installed, Fan Speed Control - NIGHTHAWK 117
ROSEWILL ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case, Supports up to 420mm Long VGA Card, 5 Fans Pre-installed, Fan Speed Control - NIGHTHAWK 117

Pros: - Plenty Of Room - Can remove & reinstall the PCI mesh covers in back - Good cable management - Case is solid - Center drive cage slides right out, if not using to help intake air flow - Total of 5 140MM fan (2 bLue LED fans up front) - Nice motherboard cutout to mount aftermarket heatsink

Cons: - Pain in the booty, removing top cover to get fan pre-installed exhaust filter out. - Cannot get ANY drives to mount into top drive dock connector. - Would of been nice to have full filter on bottom also

Overall Review: Purchased at $79.99 with $20 rebate. $59.99 for a full tower case. Can handle the Hyper 212 large style coolers. Real good deal here! Took one egg off for the pre-installed top exhaust filer & hard to remove top, dock dock seems to be useless. Otherwise great case!

Received a rotten potato.....

WD Black 500GB Performance Laptop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 2.5" - WD5000LPLX
WD Black 500GB Performance Laptop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 2.5" - WD5000LPLX

Pros: - Worked great for 3 months.

Cons: - Only lasted 3 months - Now WD RMA process has begun

Overall Review: Always had good luck with these Black Edition drives. This one went down hill in 3 months. Smart disk errors began, 100% disk activity and no process reporting any usage, system freezing - locking up, failing to boot or boot volume errors on boot up. OS 3 months old, system still clean as a whistle, luckily was able to extract the data for the customer. Having to tell a customer that new "5 year warranty drive" that you installed has failed is not good at all.
