Pros: Systems integrator here. Just received new/used laptop from Newegg!!!
Could not tell the portable from Factory New. Win 7 plus my utilities for maintenance and remote access and we are good to go!!!
Found out next morning that my new laptop from Atlanta Electronics LLC had a battery that not only would not take a charge but did not even recognize the battery. ONE chat session with Warden and the wheels were set in motion with Atlanta Electronics to provide a new battery. Within the hour a very nice rep from AE responded to my plight and said a new battery was being shipped directly to me!!!!
Now if you can find better 5 star service anywhere in the industry, I would be very surprised. Kudos to Warden @ Newegg and Atlanta Electronics LLC
Overall Review: Inexpensive, clean and fast for an I3. What's not to like !!!!!!
Pros: No OS, No Software. Just HP's legendary hardware.
Cons: None !!!!!
Overall Review: Build file servers for small business with large RAID drives.
Load the server OS, build the RAID, add my favorite software utilities.
Will definitely buy again.
1/6/20 Back for more of this older gem.
Packing was great and ditched the 250gb spinners for SSDs.
Loaded client specified OS and driver pkgs. Got lots of them in the field, no complaints or issues. Great little client workstation.
Pros: Computer came looking new
Fast I7 w/16 meg mem.
Changed out cooling fan and swapped spinner for Samsung 950 SSD
Loaded Win7 PRO and Office 2016
Nice economy box for the money
Packing was fantastic
Cons: Shipping was a touch slow, but not a big deal with this nice refurb.
Overall Review: I would not hesitate to purchase from this seller again.
Great buying experience
Pros: Upgraded the fans in the case and power supply, added my own copy of Windows 7 and installed 177 windows updates. Replaced the 500 gig spinner with a 240 gig SSD and for <> $300 I have a great little machine! With this platform I can build a rock solid client or server that is FAST. My new "goto" computer build for very cost conscious customers. Bought several of these and will be back for more.
Cons: I have to put something in here. One of the 8300's that I bought had a stuck access lid. A little WD 40 and I was good to go.
Overall Review: I hesitate to recommend this purchase to other system builders as that would potentially limit my supply.
Pros: Small, fast on USB3 or Esata. Super Easy to setup
Cons: Just quit working !!!!!! Tried reinstalling everything. Power Supply reads 12.2vDC. No Joy.
Pros: Did not work and the Server would not even boot. Server is too important the mess with this cheap part.
Going to save it for a older workstation.
Cons: Did not expect it to though! Had a couple of extra minutes to waste.
Got some extra long Sata cables from the Egg and everything is fine.
Pros: HP's reputation for building Bullet proof PC's !
Cons: Not a thing !!!!
Overall Review: Ditched the DVD-ROM and dropped in two Seagate 2 TB 3 1/2" spinners and Raided them. Ditched the WD OS drive and purchased a 128 MB SSD. Reduced my boot time from 37 sec to 5 sec. Made it WOL and left it headless. Control via RDP.
What's not to like! Cheap File Server.
Pros: Pretty much everything. See Cons, and they aren't that big of a deal.
Cons: The entire case rear panel is BLACK !!!! I mean BLACK!!!!!
Makes identifying various plugs, holes and switches a little difficult.
Overall Review: Finally, A product that incorporates mods that I have wanting for years! Rosewill released a dead-on, much needed product with this external case. I bought two, and if they work out well I will get another six or eight.
The option for USB 3 or Esata is awesome. Couple that with a switched fan for under $40 and Rosewill has a winner! Loaded both of them with four terabyte WD Black drives; one for off box data backup and the other one for shop Reflect images of all inhouse and customer machines. Initially, could not be more pleased.
Pros: When we have to print, we use 2 old HP 6P printers that were on old Netgear PS's. They finally died.
Newegg got the TP PS here pronto. Price was right,
Seems to do what it advertises. Set up required changing the subnet. Did not use the included SW.
Went to TPLink's site and downloaded the SW from there. Followed the installation instructions.
All computers in the residence can use the old reliable HP lasers again.
Happy Camper here!
Cons: None, so far.
Pros: 1. Built like a brick "outhouse"
2. Four core CPu
3. Intel Raid built -in
4 ECC memory
After I load the OS on the "included" old drive, I clone that drive to a brand new WD Black SSD with Reflect 6
Then I swap the old drive for the new drive
Then I use IObit Advance System Care 9 to update the drivers
Then I download the hundreds of Windows Updates
Then I Build the Intel Raid with any of the five remaining SATA ports
Then I take it to the customer
This is my 3rd build
Cons: This thing is heavy !!!!!
Overall Review: Gotta be great or I wouldn't be back!!!!
Pros: Truly a setup and forget it box. I had neglected to update the OS on my NAS box and found out the I could not get the box to respond to anything. After looking on the web I emailed Synology Tech Support. Several hours later Dustin K returned my email with the exact answer I needed. I followed his solution steps and he logged into my box remotely and performed his magic. No files lost and all is good, I took his advice and updated the OS immediately.
Overall Review: Note to self; Check the auto upgrade box !!!
Pros: Does what it says and it is one of the only devices that does it on a budget
Cons: Barely usable on a 4 port USB KVM switch over 100 ft of Cate 5e cable.
Pros: Size, build quality
Cons: no pci-Express slot (knew that going in)
Overall Review: Used 92 mm case fan, my own Artic Silver and 500 gig sata seagate. Loaded Vista from Corsair USB stick. Newegg, of course. Drives 37 inch wall mount LCD TV in bathroom. A no brainer.....
Pros: Lots of inputs!!!
Cons: DOA, sound only at first, then no audio, no video, no nothing.
Overall Review: Newegg's shipping is great, as always.
Pros: Very compact unit, so I bought two!
Cons: Only works when IT wants to. Huge waste of time. Gave them both away.
Overall Review: Just buy a Bytecc 5 1/2 external USB case and leave the top off. At least they work consistenly.
