Most Favorable Review

Too good for the price!

D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150
D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150

Pros: Very easy installation and the supplied CD is very easy to follow when it gets to the instructions. I am only using WEP which I feel is sufficient for a home network with 2 users. I bought it fo $25 and feel it's a steal. Very small and easy to fit in with the mess around the modem.

Cons: Cons? You are kidding huh?

Overall Review: Great for a small 1 bed appartment like mine, but the range is to limited for a larger house. In that case get the N300 version with 2 antennas. Just bought another for a friend who was continuously being dropped by her Link*** b/g router. Happy friend now. Best value on the market.

Very bright and amazing it can be done with only 8 watts!

Rosewill RL-O93001 - A19 Non-Dimmable LED Light Bulb - E26 Base, 9 Watts (Replaces 60W Bulb), 800 Lumen, UL / CE / RoHS, 2700K, Warm White, Omni-Directional

Pros: Screws in the same as an incandescent bulb. Did I say they are very bright. Very cool to the touch.

Cons: Quality control is poor. It is too late to return them as when you buy a 6 pack they are usually to replace standard bulbs as they fail. I opened the first 2 bulbs to replace in my kitchen light fixture. One was DOA. I had one out of the first three opened dead! I have 3 more for future use and intend to test them. Makes an expensive bulb very expensive.

Overall Review: I will stick with known brand names in the future. I will pay a little more but hopefully QC will be better. TCP comes to mind also available on Newegg. They arrived well packaged and no sign of damage. Are these things tested before packaging?

Much better than I expected!

HP Deskjet 1112 (F5S23A#B1H) Up to 4800 x 1200 DPI USB Thermal Inkjet Printer
HP Deskjet 1112 (F5S23A#B1H) Up to 4800 x 1200 DPI USB Thermal Inkjet Printer

Pros: Bought this to replace another HP printer that I had had a few years that jammed after putting aftermarket ink in it. Stick with OEM ink and this little baby should last a good while depending on usage.

Cons: No USB cable so I just plugged in the USB from the printer I was replacing.

Overall Review: Great value for home use and very compact.

Plug and play in an AM3+ motherboard!

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM

Pros: As always with G.SKILL, defaulted to the correct timings with no timing adjustment needed. Flawless product and for those with bulky CPU coolers there is a similar model from G.SKILL with low profile heat spreaders. I have never had any problems with this manufacturer and been using various kits for years.

Cons: It's G.SKILL so don't expect any cons from me!

Overall Review: Lifetime warranty! If you need any help installing on some boards, G.SKILL has proven flawless in support with timings etcetera within hours! I strongly recommend this brand over it's more expensive rivals. As usual, Newegg's delivery was speedy and well packaged.

Great product and easy install.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 32 layer 3D V-NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Huge difference in boot and overall speed from my WD Black 750 gig.

Cons: The Magician software is not very good. I used Macrium Reflect.

Overall Review: Absolutely recommend. Best upgrade for an old or new PC. I won't bore you with benchmarks as there are plenty in other reviews. is FAST good enough?

Still going strong!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5830 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ ATI Eyefinity Technology 100297L

Pros: Had for 5 years now. Still doing fine and not over heating. About to change to work with the 2K and 4K monitors but must say I will use in a spare desktop instead of the onboard. Bought May 2010 from Newegg and money well spent!

Cons: Do it yourself install as instructions were useless.

Overall Review: It's been a great GPU.
