Pros: Seems very fast for a HDD, not too noisy and you can store lots of files on a 4 TB.
Price is also much lower than other big brands for similar drives.
Overall Review: Recommended. Let's see how long it will last
Pros: Bought it for my 2017 Dell Precision 5520, Core i7 / 32 G RAM / 1 x NVME + 1 x SATA SSD.
It's been working for 2 months now and seems to be powerful enough. Being the smaller battery (56 Wh) It gives me 5 to 6 hours work time. The bigger battery (84 Wh) would require to get rid of the SATA drive.
Cons: None, if not that the DR. Battery brand is not mentioned anywhere on the package or the battery itself. But as long as it is the same quality product...
Overall Review: Very satisfied for now. Would by the same product again.
Note: Removing the under cover of this computer to reach the battery requires the use of a diminutive #5 torx screwdriver.
Cons: DOA. The one I received doesn't work. Impossible to connect, either in Windows (with driver properly installed) or in Linux.
Overall Review: Definitely wouldn't buy again unless I have more money to throw away.
Pros: This adaptor is a must when upgrading a 2.5 in. hdd or ssd. Cloning is fast without error.
Overall Review: Already bought 2 and will buy again if needed.
Pros: I've been using AData flash drives for many years without any problem.
Cons: These drives don't have a transfer led indicator. So, take care to always unmount before unplugging.
Overall Review: I've bought these flash drives and will buy again.
Pros: Crucial and it's parent company Micron Technology have been giving us top quality memory products in the 1990s an they still do, I believe. I've bought many Crucial MX SSDs in the last years, installed on many kinds of computers and never been disappointed. They are fast and reliable.
Cons: Never had a problem with Crucial products.
Overall Review: Highly recommended
Pros: Does what it was designed for: convert USB-C to USB-A.
Overall Review: New laptops often come with only 2 USB-A ports (the common type) . The 3rd port is replaced by the new C-type USB 3.1.
This adaptor gives you back the 3rd port you lost until your peripherals are replaced with the new connector type. Seems to work perfectly on my laptop with high speed transfers.
Cable is a little stiff.
2 year warranty.
Pros: Cavernous and speedy 6Tb drive
5 yr warranty
Cons: None for now
Overall Review: Bought as a replacement for 3 HDDs on my desktop, one of them being over 10 years old. Reinstalled system on a SSD and all data is stored on this drive. No problem during installation. Data transfers were as fast as could be expected of a good mechanical drive. Specs and warranty are about the same as WD Black and cost me less. If it's built for servers why not use it as a data disk on desktop I wondered. Up to now it does a very good job. Opening and saving files is fast. Exactly what I was looking for.
Pros: A genuine "grade A" refurb. Only a couple of light scratches on the exterior. The inside is so clean it looks brand new. Comes with a new ADATA SU630 240 Gb SSD. Combined with the 4 core i5 CPU and 8 Gb RAM, It starts quickly, usable almost instantly when desktop appears. A WiFi n-150 USB dongle was included in the package. Very well packaged inside a big plastic bubble. Very professional.
Cons: No problem whatsoever during preparation and first miles.
Just wished keyboard and mouse had been included or at least mentioned clearly it was not.
Overall Review: Why buy new when you can have these nice machines for about 1/3 the price. 1 year warranty from refurbisher Microcad Computer Corp, same as a new computer. If eventual service is anything like preparation, 5 eggs is definitely deserved.
Pros: Installed and worked OK for 3 ½ months
Cons: Put to light use on a linux machine , stopped working after only 3 ½ months. No longer recognized or recognized as a 16 Mb drive depending on the machine I plug it on. Went to HP support on the web and i'm told serial number is unknown to them. Not really interested in wasting hours trying to have my warranty honored, having to pay half the drive price to send it back for repair and being given a refurb that would probably last less than a year (in my experience).
Overall Review: I won't buy HP drives again. Better stick with first class memory makers like Samsung, Micron/Crucial, Sandisk, Kingston, Corsair. They probably are not perfect either but they have been recognized for years as reliable sources of memory products which an SSD basically is. HP has never been, in my opinion...
Pros: Transforms an internal laptop CD/DVD/Writer into an external drive.
Does well what it is designed for.
Cons: Cable is only 13 in. long. I would have preferred a couple of feet more.
Overall Review: Anyone who buys a new laptop without DVD (as is becoming the norm now) can salvage an old sata laptop dvd writer and take advantage of it with this adaptor.
Pros: Nicely refurbished, fast 4 core i5 computer, can't find much better in new equipment.
Sufficient 8 Gb DDR3 RAM.
Fast 7200 rpm WDC Blue hard drive, though 250 Gb is on the small side.
4 USB 3.0 ports at the rear.
At 250$ CAD, hard to find better deal.
Cons: - First one stopped working just when i completed installation. Refused to restart with fan revving full speed.
- Packaging is horrible. Both computers were loose in the box, sliding and knocking around. First one had the back so bent I could not open the top cover. Mouse and keyboard boxes were crushed by loose computer in the second shipment.
- Computer waits about 90 second on POST when you "reboot". Solution: Access BIOS (Esc, System Setup) then: Security, Device Security, Embedded Security Device ---> change Device Available to Device Hidden, then F10 to save. It will reboot correctly from there but this option seems to be incompatible with bitlocker drive encryption. If you don't need drive encryption, it's OK.
Overall Review: -If packaging could be more professional. I would recommend it without hesitation.
Newegg and/or US Micro, the refurbisher have to revise their packaging solutions. It's completely unacceptable the way it is.
-RMA request for the defective computer was processed quickly but the automated shipping label request did not work. I had to contact Newegg by chat to complete this part.
Pros: Not a gamer's card but it does well everything you should ask from it everyday. Traditional EVGA quality, nVidia compatibility and support with 2 Gb RAM. Card is very small and fan is surprisingly quiet.
Cons: None I can think of at the moment.
Overall Review: I would have preferred a normal sized HDMI port instead of a mini. Will have to buy a new cable or adaptor to use it.
No VGA output. people with old vga-only monitors will have to get a DVI-VGA adaptor.
Bought it refurbished at half price (45 $ CAD). I would buy the same again.
Pros: Very good scan quality. Pretty small size yet looks sturdy. Very good scanning software, configurable from novice to pro. Epson even gives support for Linux OS with a nice interface: big plus for Epson. Scanned about 100 pics up to now.
Cons: Slight mechanical noise at times during scanning
Overall Review: Bought it refurbished to replace the scanner from my all-in-one Brother MFC-J450DW which has a horrible scanner. Cost me $66 CAD, shipping included. I've had some bad experiences with refurbished equipment. This time, except for the slight scratching noise, looks very good.
Pros: This PC looks quite performant with Core i3 and Win7 Pro
Takes little desktop space.
Cons: The PC arrived quite dirty. Looked like grade B or C
No DVD-RW as advertised but a DVD-Rom
The hard drive was labeled "Dell" (in a HP brand PC ???).
Also the hard drive had the three big letters BAD hand written on it.
Tested it with Seagate Seatools which found lots of bad sectors. Drive is indeed failing. It should never have been in this computer.
What kind of refurbishing is that ?
Overall Review: I've had good service from Newegg in the past. I hope it's not a new trend but only and isolated case.
In the same order, I also bought a refurbished ASUS CM1435-CA002S which looks and works like a brand new one.
