SiliconDust - HDHomeRun Network-based Dual Digital - HDTV Tuner Ethernet Interface
SiliconDust - HDHomeRun Network-based Dual Digital - HDTV Tuner Ethernet Interface

Pros: This thing is great! It all depends on your antenna or cable QAM signal, but this dual ATSC tuner can pull down the channels. I have been impressed with the quality and ease of use of the HDHomeRun.

Cons: None. Really.... Maybe you need a 10/100 network?

Overall Review: Seriously, this device is most likely the best HTPC purchase i've made in the last 5+ years. This product is amazing, and SiliconDust allows you to customize the channel selection down to the channel name. I've never seen such a good product, and it's very system indpendant, which is also a plus.

Most Critical Review

Great board, slow to receive, Died after 3 hours

ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate AM4 AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPU Ready ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate AM4 AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPU Ready ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: 10GB ethernet worked great. board has everything and the kitchen sink. A testament to Newegg's professionalism, and customer service. They accepted the return of the board. I did want to get a replacement from them, but they were out of stock. got a refund and purchased a lesser quality board from a different manufacturer.

Cons: Board died on me about 4 hours after plugging it in. Kept reporting code '55' and nothing would fix it. I was disappointing in Asrock support as it took days for them to respond to me telling me to flip the cmos jumper to reset the bios... this board doesn't have a cmos jumper. Overall, the board was okay, ASRock support was really bad, i mean really bad. Their troubleshooting steps had me 'unplug the ide hard drive or optical drive' IDE really?

Overall Review: I would probably purchase this product again through newegg. If something works great, there's no reason to dislike a manufacturer, but that's the problem. Occasionally you get a dud, and the manufacturer is a pain to deal with, takes days to respond and provides incorrect information. I lost time in waiting for ASRock to respond, and nothing will ever really come from my review on here either, which is disappointing as well.

Uh, the Next NCase M1

SSUPD Meshlicious Mini-ITX Small Form Factor (SFF) Case - Full Mesh Side Panel with PCIe 4.0 Riser Cable - Black Color, Tool-Free and Easy Accessibility
SSUPD Meshlicious Mini-ITX Small Form Factor (SFF) Case - Full Mesh Side Panel with PCIe 4.0 Riser Cable - Black Color, Tool-Free and Easy Accessibility

Pros: Great case, good ventilation. Excellent layout. It's been good for watercooling (using a 280 AIO from EK) There's plenty of space in here. To free up the most space possible, use a SFX-L power supply, you will not regret it. Corsair's series is top notch.

Cons: Only downside is the GPU is technically facing down, so blower-style GPU's are forcing hot air where it doesn't really want to go.

Overall Review: I recommend this product. It's a great design, good airflow, very easy to build in and small. I didn't feel like i was jamming stuff in there at all.

Amazing AIO for the Money! Just make sure your case fits 2x140mm fans!

EK 280mm AIO D-RGB All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooler with EK-Vardar High-Performance PMW Fans, Water Cooling Computer Parts, 140mm Fan, Intel 115X/1200/2066, AMD AM4 LGA 1700 Compatible

Pros: It's EK! One of the best watercooling companies out there! It's D-RGB! If you like RGB. Very simple to install cables are wrapped in nylon, and are long enough to mount correctly if you mount vertical (ports on the bottom) I ended up purchasing two of these, to put in 2 meshalicious cases.

Cons: None. These were amazing

Overall Review: I would recommend this product. EK has always taken care of me. I've used corsair in the past, but the EK blocks are really good as well.

Very Powerful Smart switch

Cisco Small Business 200 Series SLM2024T-NA Smart Gigabit Switch SG200-26

Pros: Smart switch at a decent price. +2 copper ports than most other competing switches. Supports everything you would expect it to, and it's interface is very fast. Has a lifetime warranty

Cons: No con's here

Overall Review: It's a little bit more expensive than competitors products, but you get +2 nic ports, and cisco's expertise.

Excellent Product

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151

Pros: Big heatsink. Directly touching the heat spreader on the CPU I have, a better design than their previous EVO. I can mount it with air blowing across the motherboard from the front to the back.

Cons: Fan occasionally makes noise, like the bearings are situated incorrectly, or the motor is off. It's a hassle to have it RMA'd just for a 12 dollar fan.
