Arrived quickly, works well, recommended
Pros: Sockets oriented so width of items plugged in is not a factor Fast shipping Has nice blue light
Cons: Cable is short (about 8"/200mm), but I knew that before purchase from the pictures and reviews.
Overall Review: This is the second WAVLINK product I have purchased from Newegg. The other is the single bay external HD dock. Both are excellent. I recommend WAVLINK products. I also have a WD external drive with a short cable. I spent less than $2 for two USB 3.0 extension cables - problem solved.
Pros: Seems to be well-made Feels sturdy, fairly thick plastic
Cons: Not a real con: I have a clone Mega 2560. The manufacturer of my clone missed the position of the power connector by a couple of millimeters so I will have to file the case a little to get my Mega into it. Everything but the power connector lines up perfectly.
Overall Review: Recommended
Excellent Media Center PC
Pros: Small FF so it fits easily in the TV stand SSD is a really nice addition: fast startups during setup and after updates Using as Home Theater PC with Windows Media Center so it is on 24/7 to record TV shows; no problems so far Includes secondary data drive (not set up as a data drive, do this yourself) Comes with Windows 7, so it has Media Center for OTA TV Includes 8GB of DDR3 RAM! My old HP refurb came with 1 GB of DDR2
Cons: SSD is small (80 GB, but I knew that before buying) so I had to move Documents, Downloads, etc. to the secondary drive. Not too much trouble, but be aware of this. Free drive space on the SSD after the move is about 22GB. Not a con of this product: Media Center is no longer supported by MS so I have to use EPG123 and Schedules Direct to get a program guide
Overall Review: Highly recommended. This is my second HP SFF refurb. The old one died after about 6 years running 24/7! Easy setup: I ran Windows 7 setup then shut down and added my Radeon 5450, fanless, half-height, video card, USB Wifi adapter and Hauppage (spelling?) TV tuner card (all purchased from Newegg for the old HP). The cards were "discovered" by Windows and set up quickly. I moved Media Center's recording storage to the secondary drive and that was it. Media Center setup was somewhat painful and slow, but I knew that before I started.
Excellent product. I have used TurboTax for over 25 years.
Pros: Easy to follow prompts to fill out your tax forms Pulls information from your bank and investment company which saves a lot of time Finds things that you may not even know about to save you money
Cons: I have used the online version of TurboTax for a few years. Apparently this version does not connect with TurboTax online, so I had to reenter a lot of information that I thought would already be there. It slowed down the process, but it was still easy to use.
Overall Review: Excellent product, highly recommended I started using TurboTax in the early 1990s when our taxes were very complex. It saved us hundreds of dollars every year by filling out federal forms that I did not even know existed and were very complicated to fill out. Our taxes are simpler now, but I like TurboTax.
Newegg was excellent, as always. Seller was excellent. DHL shipping was really bad!
I highly recommend the seller: The product is exactly what I needed. Packaging was excellent; everything arrived in perfect condition. The shipper (DHL) had a huge delay, but everything else was excellent. The package was shipped from California to North Carolina. DHL got the box from California to their center in Raleigh, about 50 miles from me, "for delivery," in about 2 days. Ten (10) days later, it was still marked as sitting in the same place! The package finally arrived after taking 12 days to go the last 50 miles. Hurricane Florence passed through in the meantime, but that was at least 6 days after the package arrived in Raleigh.
