Pros: I found this to be a nice extra for HP desk top I purchased from New Egg a wile back, I have a drive partitioned half for extra general files, the other half for system back up in the event of a crash.
it was easy to assemble. Now this was not an expensive but it is serving my needs nicely.
Cons: The case was a bit tight when opening and reassembling
Overall Review: I would have liked the enclosure to have a fan but for the amount of time I use this drive it stays acceptably cool. If this was to get heavy use I would have purchased a different case.
I did read in some other reviews that the drive was slipping out of the connector, I do recommend that all four mounting screws holding a 3.5" be used or have a proper adapter if 2.5" drives are used.
I would not hesitate purchasing this product again should the need arise.
Pros: It is a reasonable system, I like the idea of a two year warranty.
One other advantage it that this cost less than a single use OEM license. So what's not to like.
After reviewing the cost to build a new system at all cost levels I have come to one conclusion, I am not a gamer, this is only for light office use, I have saved hundreds of dollars.
Cons: After activating it did a basic update.
However windows version 1507 build 10240 was installed, and with that build no other updates could be installed.
Overall Review: Having a knowledge of windows I did update to version 1903, this is a requirement for smooth operation and security.
Understanding the legalities of a recertified system and requirements by Microsoft to prevent reuse of system keys.
I only gave this four Eggs because of OS update.
Pros: Just put in a battery, plugged in the USB dongle and away it went. very happy.
Overall Review: My Dell Laptop had a touchy finger pad so I thought it best to go with this mouse.
I'll update if I see a problem.
Pros: I have been using this to record TV shows off of my Digital converter box with no problems.
Cons: None so far, until it failed with out any warnimg
Overall Review: I installed this in a USB3 hard drive case and use this instead of a flash drive, first and last TEAM PRODUCT
Pros: Not much any more.
I do like how fast this is over a conventional hard drive even if it was a WD black.
SSD are the future now to see how long they last.
I have been using this drive for several weeks, so far, so good
Cons: In the year that I have had this drive it has been a royal pain in the sit down. I built a new system with a Ryzen CPU and have had a constant problem with the system freezing up.
I have been running test after test, adjusting the registry and kept coming back to a bad drive.
On this last windows update, when doing a reboot this drive died and no amount of effort aloud me to boot up.
one thing I did was to have back up of all my files on other drives otherwise I would have lost everything.
The drive is good but cloning was a problem, thank goodness I could do a fresh install with no problems
Overall Review: I will be replacing my drive with a new Samsung with a 5 year warranty.
This Patriot drive FAILED after only ONE YEAR, not good.
Turns out I have an issue with my Drive
Pros: Was paying almost $50.00 a moth for service, now pay $4.85 a month for the same thing
Cons: If I could find any, I would share them.
I see some reviews of people that were unhappy, not me
Overall Review: fast setup works great. I got a new number and so far no more telemarketers or scammers.
How can you beat that
Pros: This is part of my security system
Overall Review: Person enters building, calls up, gets buzzed in
Pros: Additional hardware went together
Cons: Would not work with Ryzen CPU and Windows 7
Follow up to come in a few weeks
Overall Review: So far I have updated the bios 3 time to the newest version, I started with a Ryzen 3 2200 and the onboard video, I have now installed a GT710 video card with some improvement.
I will be installing a Ryzen 5 1600 all in an effort to correct.

Tec support was no help, just flash a new bios, its a good thing I am NOT playing games on this system.
If the new CPU fixes the problem I will edit this review.
Pros: As a former System builder, the OEM route is the only way to go
Cons: I did need to download several files from Microsoft to get some applications to work properly, this is one difference from the Home vs the Pro edition.
Pros: Plugged in and worked on my ZOLTEC motherboard
Cons: The price was low because I believe these to be recycled, no absolute proof
Overall Review: All I wanted was a boost on an older computer, and I got it.
Pros: I could not find any
Cons: Tried, failed
Pros: My new car did not come with a CD drive, and I will not use my smart phone to link music to my car radio
Overall Review: This is a thumb drive, I like the small size. It cant be seen by a passer by and stolen and I can have the music or audio files on it, then change things when I want to on the computer then I have fresh music in the car all at no additional cost to me.
Pros: Good price, and has been working well
Cons: Time will tell if any show up
Overall Review: I hope it lasts, just used to retrieve data from flash drive from time to time.
As of this point in time this is still working
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Got 2 of these, one may have been DOA, it looks like the other may be intermittent
Overall Review: If it works, it works if not, its not worth returning.
Still testing, results to come
Pros: I was not shure how well this card was going to work, I had problems with the onboard video on my MSI B350 motherboard and a Ryzen 2200 CPU this card worked.
Cons: So far none, and I don't anticipate any.
Overall Review: FYI I had a problem with the screen locking up with the onboard video, and log in the computer management file kept telling my that I had a hardware issue and kept pointing to the hard drive.
I tried a PNY video card and that also would freeze for 20 or thirty seconds when switching applications. I'm glad I solved my problem, I hope this information helps anyone else with this type problem.
Pros: Great frequency range, great bass. Fantastic product at a great price.
Cons: None so far, don't expect to have any.
After owning this for several years now, the insulation is coming off the copper wire 2/10/2019
Overall Review: Newegg always has great products and prices. It's my go to Etailer.
Pros: This is faster than my FX 6 core wit 16 gigs of ram and running at 100 deg F with stock cooler
Cons: Updating driver from AMD helped a little if anyone has an answer to prevent the system from becoming unresponsive please let me know.

Overall Review: One thing I did do was to clean off the thermal past then apply Artic Silver premium compound. this helps keep it cool.

Is this a processor fault?
Pros: good fast sharp video
Overall Review: I'll get back to you if I find any problems.
Pros: Fit well
Cons: time will tell if they hold up
Overall Review: I hope sub zero weather does not accelerate any failure
Pros: DDR4 is faster than older DDR3
Pros: Easy to set up, lots of space
Cons: none that I can find
Overall Review: Doesn't get better than this
Pros: Not one single pro
Cons: Set it up, Bios beep then nothing, fans worked but that was it
Overall Review: The day it came in is the day it was returned
Will never buy gigabyte again
My last to systems ran for 37 to 40 months, then no warranty, your call if you want this brand, but not for me
Pros: This motherboard does what its asked to do
Cons: This motherboard only lasted 4 years (died in June 2018), screen was flashing did a reboot to find the problem but it just died.
This is the third board from Gigabyte to go out after the warranty ended.
The only issue I currently have is that my BluRay drive just stop showing up.
Currently in process to get this corrected
Once Blu-ray was no longer recognized had to pull the drive out
Overall Review: I like the USB 3, for external drives.
I am replacing this motherboard with a GA-970A-DS3P Rev 2, so I didn't have to purchase any new memory or replace the CPU. This will be the last Gigabyte board i will ever purchase.
When blue ray stopped and bios was not correctable, this was sent back on an RMA.
Pros: Just dropped my extra SSD in, plugged it in and away it went, this was one of the easiest enclosures I have ever used.
Cons: This problem is with shipping, they used DHL then to the post office. it would have arrived faster if it came by mail. I was not in a rush for this, thank goodness.
Overall Review: if you need or want something fast, pay for the quicker delivery.
This is a good product, with out a doubt.
Pros: I like the fact that you can switch devices off if wish to stop using them, its good when using a webcam when its switched off it cant be hacked and turned on.
This makes security for any device or drive secure.
Cons: When I first plugged the hub into my computer several of the outlets did not work and I thought this device was defective, it was not.
Overall Review: I think if people have problems, they could do as I did and just reboot there computer. That fixed all the issues that I had, I also made Shure I was connected to a USB 3 port on the motherboard.
