Most Favorable Review

Great Product

Rosewill RKV-2U 2 Port Slim Palmtop USB KVM Switch w/ Audio & Mic/ Black Shell
Rosewill RKV-2U 2 Port Slim Palmtop USB KVM Switch w/ Audio & Mic/ Black Shell

Pros: Great little USB KVM. Works with wireless keyboard and mouse that just has one plug. Plugged it into the keyboard slot on the KVM and both keyboard and mouse work perfectly (unlike my old Belkin KVM). Doesn't require AC adapter!

Cons: None

Most Critical Review

Not Auto-Detected at 3200MHz (nor 2666)

Team T-FORCE DARK Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TDZGD416G3200HC16CDC01
Team T-FORCE DARK Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TDZGD416G3200HC16CDC01

Pros: It works in a Dell Vostro desktop with 10th Gen i5, but not at proper speed. Only detects it as 1400MHz. Has XMP Profiles so it can (possibly) run at advertised 3200MHz.

Cons: More poop RAM that can't be used in a off the shelf PC that can't adjust memory speed / timings manually. However, this is slightly better than the Crucial LPX (that is only detected at 2133MHz).

Overall Review: Does it work: Yes Does it work at advertised speeds without having to manually adjust speed / timings: NO.

Always Great RAM from Crucial

Crucial 8GB 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model CT8G4DFRA32A
Crucial 8GB 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model CT8G4DFRA32A

Pros: It has been hard to find RAM that works at 3200MHz lately. Almost all of that fancy RGB w/ heatsink RAM requires XMP profiles / manual settings, etc. that off the shelf Dell, Lenovo and HP PCs do not have. This Crucial stuff has never let me down even in laptop SODIMMs.

Cons: No Problems out of this RAM.

Overall Review: Highly recommended if you just want basic, reliable RAM for standard office PCs.

Great RAM for new 11th Gen Intel and AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Laptops

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model F4-3200C22S-8GRS
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model F4-3200C22S-8GRS

Pros: This RAM works at advertised speed (3200MHz) on store bought HP, Lenovo and Dell laptops in my experience. Unlike other Ballistix and Vengeance RAM that requires you to have a laptop that can enable XMP memory profiles. This G.Skill is great!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Yes. Will continue buying this as long as the price is right. I wish Newegg would drop UPS Mail Innovations though. It is awful.

Fantastic Mid to High-End Gaming Laptop - Only a Few Drawbacks

MSI GL Series - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 9th Gen 9750H (2.60GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 8 GB DDR4 - 512 GB NVMe SSD - Windows 10 Home 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (GL65 9SDK-034 )
MSI GL Series - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 9th Gen 9750H (2.60GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 8 GB DDR4 - 512 GB NVMe SSD - Windows 10 Home 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (GL65 9SDK-034 )

Pros: The performance / speed of this laptop is incredible. The hex-core i7 really shines. The 1660 Ti is almost as powerful as a desktop 1660. I can almost play Red Dead Redemption 2 at max settings (almost). The Dragon Center (system control app) is actually neat and helpful. The laptop does get hot while gaming so use a cooler / fan plate. The Steel Series Keyboard is great. You can edit everything about the keyboard.

Cons: The speakers are the worst part of this laptop. Like really bad. But who games without headphones? The headset jack works fine though. The Steel Series keyboard is cool, but the default delete key placement is stupid. The Delete key and the Page Break key should be swapped. The Delete key should be above backspace. This is not MSI's fault though. The volume controls on the keyboard are in weird places too.

Overall Review: Get this laptop when it goes on sale!

Great SSD as heavy as spinning HD

OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-128G
OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-128G

Pros: Super fast SSD.

Cons: For those of use who also buy an SSD to decrease the weight of a laptop, be careful. This one weighs 115 grams. Many other SSDs weigh half that or less. It is not a huge deal, but may matter more to some than others.
