Most Favorable Review

Simple, but effective!!

NETGEAR Powerline AV500 Adapter Kit (XAVB5201), up to 500Mbps
NETGEAR Powerline AV500 Adapter Kit (XAVB5201), up to 500Mbps

Pros: Simple to set up and use. Just plug one of the adapters into an electrical outlet near your router and connect it to the router with one of the provided Ethernet cables, then plug the other adapter into an electrical outlet near the computer that you wish to network with and attach it to the computer with the other Ethernet cable, and you're set.

Cons: The "500 Mbps" speed claim seems a bit optimistic to me, but it's not enough to take an Egg away from it, ratings-wise.

Overall Review: This is a great product to use if you wish to eliminate unnecessarily long Ethernet cables between a computer and the router, particularly if they are located in different rooms or on different floors in your house or apartment.

Absolutely worthless!!!

NUANCE Dragon Naturally Speaking Home 11
NUANCE Dragon Naturally Speaking Home 11

Pros: Nice-looking interface! Other than that.....

Cons: ....I am unable to use this software as I am unable to create an audio profile in it at all! When I attempt to set up the microphone (in the included headset), it tells me the microphone volume is too low, even though I am able to set up the microphone in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

Overall Review: I did not buy this at NewEgg and wish that I could return the defective software for a refund.

Nice design and easy to use!

DEEPCOOL Multi Core X8 Laptop Cooling Pad 17" Pure Aluminium Extrution Panel 4* 100mm Fans
DEEPCOOL Multi Core X8 Laptop Cooling Pad 17" Pure Aluminium Extrution Panel 4* 100mm Fans

Pros: The design is nice and visually appealing. I like the fact that it has two USB ports so that you don't have to sacrifice a USB port on a laptop in order to use it to cool your laptop computer. It fits perfectly under my new 15.6" Dell Inspiron 15 laptop and help keep the Intel Core I7 (7th generation) processor in it cool. The fans are quiet, but effective.

Cons: For having four fans in it, the cooling seems to be a bit underwhelming as it only keep the processor in the laptop only four to five degrees cooler during testing with memTest86, but it does keep it running cooler during use everywhere else, so no eggs taken away since it does what it says it does.

Overall Review: The overall look and feel of this cooler are excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone that has a laptop that needs active cooling.

Great laptop for the price....

DELL Laptop Inspiron 15 5000 5FRYFH2 Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7500U (2.70 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 620 15.6" Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit
DELL Laptop Inspiron 15 5000 5FRYFH2 Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7500U (2.70 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 620 15.6" Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit

Pros: Windows 10 Professional 64-bit runs very well on this laptop as it has eight gigabytes of memory installed by default. The battery life is estimated at between six and eight hours when new and fully charged. The keyboard is quiet but is also very comfortable to use. Touchpad can be disabled via Dell software in Windows 10 (definitely a plus since touchpads are pesky when you are typing). The screen is bright and its colors are vivid. This laptop is by far the thinnest and lightest I have ever owned and the charger is sturdy and well-made.

Cons: Despite the great aesthetics of this laptop, it tend to run warm during use and needs to have a laptop cooler underneath it in order to keep it cool.

Overall Review: The processor in this laptop is actually a quad-core processor, but only two of the cores are active and this appears to be a BIOS limitation. There were a BIOS update and a hard drive firmware update available for this laptop available from the Dell website by the time I ordered and received the laptop and both were easy to perform.

Great product! Fast, spacious, and durable!

Corsair 128GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-128GB)
Corsair 128GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-128GB)

Pros: This is the largest of all of my USB 3.0 flash drives! It's fast, durable, and has plenty of room for backing up just about anything that I need to backup before reinstalling Windows on any system! I have had this drive for about three years and have yet to have it fail on me. By both name and design, it has no cap to lose--definitely a plus! It also has a beautiful blue light on one end that flashes to let you know when it is being written to or being read and written from. For those individuals that like to use lanyards, there is a place for that as well. Best of all, it's manufactured by one of the best names in the business!

Cons: I have no cons to report after having owned this drive for about three years (I bought it back in 2014).

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this drive to anyone who wants a reliable and well-designed USB 3.0 flash drive with plenty of storage space. It's fast and I bought it from NewEgg for $47.99 (a great deal at that time--I have no idea if it is currently cheaper or not) and I do not regret purchasing it.

Nicely constructed USB 3.0 flash drive! I got three of these for less than $14.00!

Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)
Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)

Pros: Construction of this flash drive is solid. The drive is capless and has a place for attaching a lanyard so you can hang it around your neck or attach it to a set of keys.

Cons: This drive seems a little slow for making a bootable Windows 7 SP1 installation drive, but that could be due to the size of the drive as opposed to the size of the .iso file being written to it (4.01 GB). It also doesn't appear to have any lights on it to determine if there is any activity going on with the drive. Neither of these issues is worth deducting a point, though, as the drive appears to be solid and well-designed.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to get an inexpensive USB 3.0 flash drive. The cost of these drives has come down significantly in recent years and were a great purchase for me at this price point. I will be testing this drive a bit more in the immediate future and will report on my findings as to its true read/write speed.

Stay away from this seller! READ AND HEED THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ON THIS SELLER!

Definitely will NOT be doing business with this seller EVER again! They were quick to charge my credit card and provide me with a tracking number within a few hours of my placing an order with them on April 9, 2017. Unfortunately the tracking number still shows the item as in the "Packaging" stage with no available estimated delivery date by USPS. It is now the 29th of April and I do not believe that I will ever receive this item. I sent the seller an email just over twenty-four hours ago and have not received any response (and most likely never will). I have contacted NewEgg via their chat system and have been advised to give the seller until May 2nd to reply to my email concerning this order before filing a claim with them. However, I am going ahead with my review on this seller in order to warn others and help keep them from making the mistake that I made. Buyer Beware!
