Pros: 120GB SSD
Speed (This drive is FAST)
Overall Review: Bought this to replace the HDD in a new laptop. From a full power off, to the windows 8 login screen in well under 10 seconds. Laptop comes back from hibernate faster than you can open the lid. Very fast drive.
Pros: G.Skill Memory
Instantly recognized by system (Asus K55 with Ivy Bridge i5, 4GB RAM, Windows 8).
Cons: Doesn't make me breakfast?
Overall Review: Bought this to upgrade a new laptop for a family member. Laptop is an Asus k55, with Intel Core i5 (Ivy Bridge) running Windows 8, poped the cover off, stuck the stick in, replaced cover, booted up. Instantly recognized and working flawlessly.
For the last few years, I have bought G.Skill memory exclusively. Have not had a single problem with ANY order. Cant beat G.Skill in the price to performance category.
As always, I love you Newegg!
Pros: Cheap gigabit network adapter.
Cons: Not an intel chipset?
Overall Review: Have two of these in a pfSense box acting as my main router. One acting as the WAN connection, connecting directly to the Fios ONT via cat 6, the other as the LAN interface connected to a Rosewill 8-port Gigabit switch.
During the pfsense install, it recognized them, and set them up without any issues. If you need a cheap gigabit nic, look no further.
Pros: Instantly, and easily pair to both my Nexus 7, and Galaxy Note 2. N7 is running CM10, GN2 is running a stock firmware.
Cons: Wasn't free? Doesn't make me sammiches?
Overall Review: This is an amazing deal. Paired with my Nexus 7 and Galaxy Note 2 instantly and easily.
To those complaining about "The huge manual",
Page 1 "congratulations on your purchase page"
Pages 2-4, 7 Images of whats what and where it is, Page 5-6: PAIRING INSTRUCTIONS.
Pages 8-10 Reference info, hotkeys, indicator lights, etc. Pages 11-12 Troubleshooting, Support info.
Pages 13-25 Legal garbage.
Pages 26+ Same thing, but also in Spanish and French.
As you can see, the important pages for setup, are 5-6, and 6 covers "special" conditions. So one page of setup instructions.
Also to the people thinking it will break easily.. How rough is your life? I have zero doubt that this thing could take a 4-5 foot drop onto concrete without any issues.
Very well made product, easy to use (assuming you aren't brain dead) size is a bit larger than my N7 however not at all an issue. Do not let the people who obviously lack the ability of critical thought, that are giving this thing low ratings sway your decision. Its worth every cent (ESPECIALLY if you got it on sale for the cost of dirt!)
I love you newegg.
Pros: Beautiful case, Flip down mobo tray is VERY nice. Made installation a breeze.
Cons: Power supply has very short cables, Left side case handle was "broken" and had to fix.
Overall Review: I replaced all the fans in the case with green eld fans, 120mm front, 120mm rear, 80mm right side. Make sure the left side of the case is fully latched before you try to open, or it will not open.
Pros: Cheap, stable, Looks good
Cons: Wasnt Free
Overall Review: Good memory for the price, read lots of reviews that says this memory will perform in the 1200-1300mhz range. Havnt tried yet thought.
