This thing is LIGHT!

CyberPower 8 Feet 12 Outlets 4350 Joules Surge Protector with Telephone and Coaxial Protection (HT1208TCRC1)
CyberPower 8 Feet 12 Outlets 4350 Joules Surge Protector with Telephone and Coaxial Protection (HT1208TCRC1)

Pros: Very light. The 8 foot cord is fantastic for those long reaches you need. Plenty of space for those bigger blocks. 15Amps is your typical max for household plugs. Some may be 20Amps but those are usually reserved for things such as a Deep Freezer, fridge or something else that can draw a lot of power. *Surprising enough, there are 20a protectors out there for these if desired!* Most household outlets are 15Amps though. 1875 watts of power output is nice too. However… ☹ This is a surge protector, now a power station. You got to keep safety in mind and never overload an outlet in your home. It is great for your entertainment area where you got multiple gaming consoles sitting. You want them protect, but you wouldn’t use them all at the same time. Most users wouldn’t go over a thousand watts with their TV, game, phone charging, digital clock, fancy electronic photo frame and lamp on kind of setup going. So without all the Specs being dissected, we can rest assured this is a great surge protector for our toys! Grounded and Surge indicators… From what I’ve read, a surge protectors MOVs direct the unwanted power through the ground. So, I would think that only one LED would be needed. This is a pro and con because of this. Pro for having the indicator, but Con for having a redundant one. Dataline and Coaxial protection is also a Pro and Con. Pro for having Coaxial protection, but the little phone jack ones? I guess if someone has a device using that, but I thought those disappeared when we came into the new millennium. Con for not being RJ45 capable. The safety covers are also a pro and con! It’s ALL pro till you are struggling to reach behind your entertainment center to plug in your new game and the bloody thing won’t go in and after ten minutes of trying you remember the safety covers and Homer Simpson “DOH” the whole process! I’m going to mention it is LIGHT again. Light as a feather! You are almost tempted to use the mounting holes and pop it nicely along the wall! Then you remember it’s made to hold those plugs and has those six nicely spaced ones for the power bricks. The unit may be light, but those power bricks are not!

Cons: As mentioned in the pro section, I feel the grounded LED is redundant. While the safety covers may be humorous when someone is trying to plug something in, I do like them. I just wish they put a bit of planning in it and painted the piece you see green when it’s open and red when closed. I’ve seen others like that and it really speeds up the troubleshooting process when someone shines the flashlight on it and wonders why their plug isn’t going in. Also as mentioned in the Pro section, I feel the phone lines are redundant and they should be RJ45. That is more of a preference though. Like wanting a couple USB charging plugs included. For the price, this is a fantastic choice and these cons really can’t be factored in. The only real cons that can be factored into this product is the redundant ground LED and the difficult to determine if the plug safety cover is open or closed. It really is Light? I really hope that isn’t a bad thing!

Overall Review: After doing a bit of searching to find out if 4350 Joules was fair, average, or splendid… I learned quite a bit about surge protectors. Going for the largest number in the description for Joules is not the correct way to shop for surge protectors! Learning the metal oxide varistors (MOVs) is the most important component in absorbing surges and sending them through the ground wire didn’t seem bad at first, but the more I learned the more I wish I hadn’t looked. So rather than give the whole breakdown between MOVs and SASDs (Silicon Avalanche Suppression Diodes), I will keep it simple. You can always find better, but we are looking at the majority and what is acceptable usage here. If you want high end protection, a power backup device may be where you want to search. If you want typical, buy the same things the millions of other people are buying. Surge protectors are consumable items. I did not know that. I had no problem letting one of the bloody things sit behind the entertainment center for decades! Now that I know the MOVs in these things die, and your average lifespan is 2 years, I will keep a better eye on the one in the living room. Which thanks to the LED on this one, I will be able to tell when it is no longer surge protecting but power stripping! I thought that maybe I would be interested in getting one of those that cut power when the MOVs die, but after weighing the pros and cons of that product, I think I’ll be fine with one that has the LED indicator. The thought of having to rush out and immediately buy a new one or keep a spare or alternative hanging around just seems like too much drama.

Netgear Powerline AV 200Mbps Pass Thru + USB Port (XAUB2511)
Netgear Powerline AV 200Mbps Pass Thru + USB Port (XAUB2511)

Pros: Great Music Extender This is what they are pushing on their advertising and for good reason! It's the best and only function I will use this device for! Unlike the USB port in my router, this one works with NTFS drives. That is a big deal for anyone who lost a bunch of pictures trying to sync on a FAT32 drive over a network. It doesn't take much for file corruptions on FAT32, and I haven't had any issues with a NTFS formatted drive. They are tough little things and can take a few drops. (Some plugs are harder to get to than others when you are trying to find just where you are going to put them!) They do not take up both sockets on the wall. If you put them in the bottom plug, a heavy duty surge protector is able to plug in without any problem in the top plug. (Providing the electric sockets are installed normally and not upside down) Being able to share sound wireless over the Wi-Fi is really cool. I've already enjoyed being able to listen to my playlist on the huge speaker we use for Karaoke and it made doing dishes not seem like such a chore. It isn't 100% perfect, as it may skip a beat/hic-up here and there. It is widespread and not very frequent and may go unnoticed for the most part. It's a great little toy, but I'm pretty sure a Bluetooth adaptor would do the same task and would be a lot cheaper than the asking price for this.

Cons: I plugged in a 256GB SSD to check out how the network storage would perform. Boy did it take me back to windows 95 days! Alright, that may be a bit harsh but 20 minutes to move a 1.2GB iPod video? Far too slow to be of any use! I plugged in our wireless printer that has been giving us a bunch of headaches and playing the disappearing game, and it appeared and said it was connected, but was unable to print. I didn't pursue it any further. I find it ironic the manual says to plan out where you'd like to set all this up, and a bit further it tells you to try a different plug if the connection isn't good. (Red Status Light) The first two plugs I tried did just that. The third plug is giving me a good connection of 148Mbps down and 74Mbps up. The manual is horribly misleading as some of the instructions refer to the Netgear Genie program when the tasks actually are done via the Powerline Utility. So if you find yourself following the instructions and saying "Mine isn't doing that!" Open the Powerline Utility and you will get somewhere! Netgear Genie will confuse newbie's who never played with Powerline extenders before. Even more so if you don't have a Netgear router. The startup screen shows Wi-Fi Connection (Not Enabled) and users having any trouble setting these extenders up will feel something isn't right. Netgear Genie from what I've gathered is a program geared for Netgear routers and really isn't needed for these extenders. In fact, I haven't found any useful function from the program at all for my setup even though the User Manual states otherwise! Some more advance settings will require a Device Password which is located on the product label. You might want to get this before you plug it in those hard to reach sockets! At some point I played with the security buttons. I changed it and it wasn't working, so I pressed the button on the opposite one first and then came back and pressed the other. Fiddled with this and that, did a firmware update, messed around some more. At some point I did a factory reset and things finally got up and running. I didn't think I was EVER going to see that Airplay icon on my iPod! When you install the Netgear Media Extender app, take caution if you've read the user manual. You don't need to "Manually Connect" if you want to play from your iTunes on your PC. The Airplay icon should appear in iTunes and like your iPod, it should work the same. If you "Manually Connect" like suggested, then may I save you a headache and suggest you disconnect and leave it "available" where your iTunes airplay can take it automatically! I'm confused by this still. The manual tells you to connect to play from your PC and don't forget to Disconnect or you won't be able to play music from your iPod and such. And it looks like they've fixed this to be automatic so you won't need to worry about it! Which is great, but why are you trying to confuse folks who actually took the time to read the user manual?

Overall Review: NAS Function isn't great unless you plan on only reading from the NAS or writing few and small files few and far between. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 so all your flash drives and such should work without a problem. Seeing how USB 2.0 is rated 480Mbps and these extenders are only 200Mbps, you won't even come close to the max USB 2.0 speeds. Keep that in mind if you wanted USB 3.0 ports in these. (There is absolutely NO point to that!) I'd also like to point out the 15A you may see listed on the device in the High Res picture. For those concerned, you really shouldn't be unless you plan on plugging in your deep freezer with something else. Under full load your deep freezer may draw 10-12 amps which when on a circuit with other appliances may blow the circuit. *Fridge kicks on at same time, and it may be too much for a 15A circuit* It's good practice to put your deep freezer on its own 20A circuit because that isn't something you want popping a circuit when you're not home and ruining all your food. If you have any concerns with this device and it's 15A rating, use Google to find out what all you plan on plugging into this will draw in amps. I just don't see anyone having issues unless they got something that draws a whole lot of Amps! (Shop equipment like Air Compressor?) Our house is less than 5 years old, however it is a modular home so that may be causing issues with some plugs not working very well. It's about 2200 square feet so the distance shouldn't be causing any issues. Of the 3 plugs I experimented with, the 3rd was the furthest away and is working the best.

Trimmer with a rumble!

Philips Norelco Multigroom Series 3000 All-In-One 13-Piece Trimmer, MG3750/60
Philips Norelco Multigroom Series 3000 All-In-One 13-Piece Trimmer, MG3750/60

Pros: It is small and easy to use. Does a great job cutting up my face fur. Easy to push button and you can use while plugged in. This was very important to me, because I hate the battery dying and you could be unable to finish trimming up your face! I was using a full size hair trimmer and this smaller size does a much better job on my mustache and gives cleaner edges. Less chance for opps and other mistakes. A very nice and easy to open package!

Cons: The vibration motor in this rumbles more than others Ive used in the past. It doesnt really sound louder, but you can feel the difference when holding it. Like you can give yourself a massage with it kind of rumble. As long as it works, I dont care too much. Just a warning if that kind of thing bothers you. One of the attachments was really scratched up bad upon opening the product. Quality was lacking on the one I got. The plug in hole at the bottom has a recessed way about it. The plug doesnt feel tight and secure and will fall out during use. This will encourage you to charge it before using, and youll have to support the plug while its plugged in if you need to use it when the battery dies. That or pick up the cord and plug it in again each time it falls out.

Overall Review: For the price, I would certainly recommend this. It does what youd want it to do without much effort. I do wish they wouldnt have compared their no oil needed to another brand because it makes you want to compare it to other brands and then you start to see all the imperfections with this one. Full disclosure, it is still a cheap trimmer. Nothing to call the news about!

Big power in a little package!

CORSAIR RM RM750 750 W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply
CORSAIR RM RM750 750 W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply

Pros: I was not expecting this to be as small as it is! 6 and three quarters length at the most depending if you count the power cord case. Its only six inches wide and one of the smallest larger wattage PSU units I have seen! Granted its been a long time since I needed one, but it is impressive that they have improved over the years! This should work in many small form factor computers. I personally have learned that adding more isnt always better. I like keeping it as simple as possible. Only having to plug in what you need makes that cleaner and better air flow inside your computer. The PSU isnt something you want to gamble with. Its the most overlooked important part of any PC. Improper power can be one of the first things to cause malfunctions. I was told you want a unit to run in the 80% or under range and never run at max constantly. I dont know if that rule holds true still, but 750w is well more than plenty of power for all my needs. Oh and it is super quiet!

Cons: The only con in this is I wish there were more individual SATA cords instead of having the one with 4 and one with 3. I only have two in my HTCP and dont need the extra ones. Still not difficult to let dangle, just wish I had more individual ones instead of such long cluttered cables.

Overall Review: I highly recommend because it's a lot of power and almost no noise! It is a great choice for almost all potential computer needs.

VERY easy to setup! Use extreme caution!

Titan Luca V Massage Chair with Heat, Zero-Gravity Recline, Bluetooth Speakers, SL-Track, Auto/Manual Massage Modes, Extendable Footrest, Space-Saving, Full-Body Air Compression Massage.
Titan Luca V Massage Chair with Heat, Zero-Gravity Recline, Bluetooth Speakers, SL-Track, Auto/Manual Massage Modes, Extendable Footrest, Space-Saving, Full-Body Air Compression Massage.

Pros: It does a very nice massage. I can't say too much because I haven't had many different chairs to review. I had an i-Joy awhile back that I enjoyed other than it was brutal and I had to put a pillow behind me to avoid being destroyed. (In the end, the pillow got destroyed and the chair ate it. A gear got wrapped with the stuffing of the pillow and the plastic gear broke. :( This chair is like that as far as the massage goes except it doesn't shake you as much as the i-joy did. I mean that chair would blur your vision! This chair also tends to invade your private region. After some adjustments, I'm able to handle the chair. If I had the option to buy it again, I probably wouldn't. It's difficult doing research and reading up on all the different options.

Cons: Use Extreme Caution! The chair... Whoooo wheee! If you are expecting nice small foreign lady massage, this chair is not for you. This chair is more like the principal from Matilda. You can say ouch all you want, this chair shows no mercy! I HIGHLY recommend you keep one arm out and on the remote so you can hit the pause or power button till you test all the auto programs on this thing. And keep your phone nearby. If you are in the chair, you can't just hop out and go answer it. It takes you a few minutes to get it back where you can get out. The air bags. In my research, they market that less is better. I call foul on that. I rather have four or five in the arms to do a great massage. The single air bag is nothing more than a compactor. You know, like the ones that compact your trash, or the cardboard boxes as the stores. So the lower amount of airbags is disappointing. The fact that they try to pop you like a zit is also concerning. At some points in the massages, you are being held hostage to the chair. (Hence the warning to keep a hand out and on the remote!) I can't afford the 3D rollers offered in the more expensive models, so just to be able to use this chair, I have a pillow behind me, and I got some shoe inserts to give me some protection for the bottom of my feet. If you are a bigger person, you may not need the barrier to protect you. But the weight limit is what? 250lbs.? If you are six feet like me, chances are you don't have the extra padding. In the back anyway! I'm 191 and all my extra is in my belly. Which doesn't get massaged! I can't even do the 4th program. The stretch. I kid you not, the thing tries to snap you like a wish bone! The shoulder bags press you and again... I'm not kidding when I say it tries to pop you like a zit! You are held in place by these things! I'm a guy, and I couldn't help but think of all the stories of mammograms that women have described over the years! This must be what they were describing! The back starts going back, the feet start going down and like with the air bags, you go Owe, Owe! OWE!!! I couldn't allow it to continue. I had to stop! I thought it was going to kill me! My sister tells me to read over the manual and reduce the settings. I did that, but it still was killing me! I noticed after some time the reason why. When you hit the buttons on the controller, it will do what you ask right then and there. However the program will resume it's butchering state! One wouldn't not have known this had they not been staring at the controller! So you can't use the auto programs unless you can handle the pain! I can do 1 and 2 and somewhat 3. Can't do 4. That is however with a pillow behind me and the insoles protecting my feet. The air bags still are painful on the calves and my shoulders. Sometimes I put my arms behind my head and I only have to worry about the pain in my legs as the bloody thing tries to crush me like Linda Hamilton did the terminator at the end of that movie. The Bluetooth speakers... Sad. I reckon if you put soothing sounds like the ocean or seagulls... The faint sound that comes from them may help you accept your pending doom. I won't be using them ever again. They just did not impress me in the least little bit. If you are still reading and trying to educate yourself for your own chair purchase. The L track is nice as it goes further than the S track for that lower back massage. And even further to play with your hiney, and even further to massage part of your upper leg! I much rather it had stopped at the top of my buttocks. So if you can't go try a chair out at a store, keep that in mind. I'm disappointed in the air bags. I rather have more. Most disturbing is the lack of putting you back on the ground when you're done! I reckon if you fall asleep, some might find this great! I find it annoying having to turn it back on, STOP the program. Find the button to put me back at square one so I can get out of the bloody thing! They should have made that one of the buttons that light up since they didn't light them all! More so, they should have made a button that would put you back with just a single push. All my cons might be pros for other people. Some would call it a deep tissue massage. To each their own, but I'm not a member of the Adams Family and am really regretting calling my basement entertainment room "The Dungeon!" This chair is my first torture device.

Overall Review: If you are expecting a nice peaceful massage, I would not recommend this device. It states it is a low profile, but as it went back. I kept hearing the sound of the chair rub against the wall. I was... It's more than 6" from the wall now! What the heck! Turns out the head flap/cushion/pillow whatever you want to call it... It was getting pushed a bit and it was what was rubbing against the wall. I'd recommend you go ahead and try the zero g button without being in the chair at first to make sure all is well. Maybe give it an extra couple inches if you can to avoid the head rest flap thing from surprising you later! Buying a big ticket item makes returns VERY difficult. Restocking fee, lot of people having to do lots of extra work. If you are reasonable like me, you plan on buying it and regardless of how it performs, you plan on keeping it. If worse comes to worse, possibly sell it locally to someone that would enjoy it more than you. I gave my honest review, but again. Take it with a grain of salt! Some folks may enjoy the aggression this chair shares! I just recommend taking the cautions with it. Possibly have someone you can trust ready to shut it off for you. I'd also recommend against putting this too deep into a dwelling. You will want this where you can make a quick and speedy exit. Because it can take a minute to get out of the chair. So if there is an earthquake, house fire, tornado... Better hope you don't have both your arms being squeezed at the same time as your shoulders is all I can say! Especially if you thought you were going to relax with a movie and you have the lights out and can't see anything on the bloody controller! I would not buy it again even at the great deal I got it. I'm just thankful that I didn't pay three times as much!

Looking for a great Laptop? You’ve found it!

ASUS ROG STRIX Scar Edition15.6" 120 Hz FHD Display GeForce GTX 1050 4 GB VRAM Quad Core Intel i7-7700HQ, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB PCIEG3x4 NVME SSD + 1 TB Hybrid Drive - GL503VD-EB72 Gaming Laptop -- ONLY @ NEWEGG
ASUS ROG STRIX Scar Edition15.6" 120 Hz FHD Display GeForce GTX 1050 4 GB VRAM Quad Core Intel i7-7700HQ, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB PCIEG3x4 NVME SSD + 1 TB Hybrid Drive - GL503VD-EB72 Gaming Laptop -- ONLY @ NEWEGG

Pros: I’m having a hard time trying to find something wrong with this laptop! I looked into the other reviews from multiple sites to get an idea of what to look for, but I have failed to find those faults myself! The things I’ve found are so bland, that it seems hardly worth mentioning. I’ve worked on many different laptops, while most were entry level, I have played with a couple higher end ones. I’ve replaced keyboards, screens, and even the CPU/GPU fan on my HP about a year ago. Forgive me if I believe that my opinion on these are worth something! First, let’s talk about the great news for this little bugger! The slot for the m.2 is Gen3 x4 and is capable of running the newer SSDs out there! The one included is cheap to get you started, but when it comes time to upgrade, you can! The 128GB is reading pretty fast, but only writes at a max of 600MBs. 3,000 of course is going to be better, but it is a great starting point! The SSHD is also your entry point storage and you can change it out for a larger and speedier SSD. My test was with what was included, and I’m not in a rush to upgrade just yet! It is PLENTY fast enough as it is right now! The memory can also be upgraded. Again, 8GB is plenty to get you started! What I really love about this other than I can upgrade and make a BEAST of this thing more than it already is; the discrete graphics doesn’t need to be turned off! The only time it started to warm up on me was when I was testing out a game. So, I can’t say “This thing gets HOT!” I reckon it will if you game for hours on end, but I wouldn’t do that on a laptop. For me, that’s like watching a 4K movie on a phone. In a pinch, maybe. I rather watch it on the big screen TV though! For the few days I’ve been on it, it didn’t get hot on me. I never heard the fans even when I unplugged it and took it for someone else to give me their opinion on it. The power brick never got warm either! (Very Important safety issue for me! I always make sure my bricks are never on carpet or other easy to combust materials) So for those having heat issues and were not gaming and stressing the machine, that can’t be normal if mine was a mere 40-45 celsius during normal use! Another issue that I couldn’t agree with is, I read it had a weak keyboard! I guess the complaint was taken into account when the designed the new ones because mine is fantastic! The leds have 3 levels of brightness and unless you are in the noon-day sun or in a brightly light building, it is fine! I love how I can change the colors to any I wish and not just a few preselects. It isn’t as advance as some other keyboard I’ve tested that allowed me to do the Night Rider Kitt slide, but it is fantastic for where we are on this! A sub grand laptop. I do believe it is worth a grand, no problem! I also couldn’t complain about the speakers! I have NEVER been impressed by the speakers on a laptop, and I was expecting these to be just about like them. Granted they aren’t 5.1 and able to stand on their own if you wanted to use it for movie night, they ARE pretty impressive for laptop speakers! I would have no problem enjoying a quite movie night on it and not feel the need for headphones. In a pinch of course! I could see you being asked to put in headphones if you are on a plane though! So maybe because I wasn’t expecting much, I was REALLY impressed with how well the speakers performed! And I didn’t have this Bloatware that I usually had! Unless you include the programs from Asus. The only thing I removed was the Antivirus. I may end up removing some of the Asus stuff I won’t be using later, but right now it’s not invading the system and causing me grief like others I’ve seen! The brushed aluminum looks great and repels the fingerprints beautifully! The lid seems fine with me. I never was one to tug on just one corner of a laptop, so it doesn’t seem flimsy to me in the least. You got an inch bevel around the screen so your thumb in the center isn’t going to put a print on your screen! Probably not even your webcam unless you go deep! The whole laptop looks fantastic!

Cons: Asus Install didn’t work. Wouldn’t allow me to select anything. I might try later on, but there is a good chance that I might just uninstall it. Alright, the few little blahs of this thing. While the rest of the system repels fingerprints like magic, the touchpad does not! It would be fantastic if the Power LED and the ROG Eye on the cover could match the lights on the keyboard, but red Is fine too. Can’t tell if Number Lock is on. That was it! That was all I could complain about! The box was fantastic, kinda tilted to here and there to “present” you the laptop! The Asus brick is nice and labeled so you don’t accidently use it for another laptop. It doesn’t get hot like other bricks do. Oh, and the far most right top USB is the one you’d want to use for external mouse. Those things are hard to read but you remember where the weakest link is and you don’t have to look again.

Overall Review: I did take the BIOS up to 307 and updated everything I could. I had some issues with trying to update the trackpad, but since it was working just fine, I didn’t pursue it aggressively. The drivers for it felt like they were not user friendly. A small note also said you need to install the Intel Serial I/O Driver first? Naturally, if you search that, you may end up with a software package from Intel that got me updating 3 different things including the drivers for the m.2 slot, the Bluetooth and Wireless drivers. I try to stick with just the manufacture’s recommended drivers unless I am having a problem with something. Sometimes you have to look up the maker of a piece of hardware in your system and they may have a newer driver that the manufacturer does not. Sometimes you mess things up when you try doing that! So, if it isn’t needed, I try not to go into such depths. With all that said, Asus should really tackle that problem right away so users don’t wander and end up in the wrong places installing the wrong things! If something needs installed first, perhaps it should be included in the package and in fact, installed first? The Samsung MZ-VLW1280 SSD is in fact a 2280 for those interested in updating their SSD right away and I can’t say for all the systems, but my GL503VD has only one memory chip in it leaving the second slot open for upgrades. But I think I’d be maxing it out and I’ll have to do a tear down to get to the second one. (Easy enough after watching a YouTube video on how to!) Note the sticky foot needs to be removed and then a small screw for getting into the SSD/SSHD/Memory area. I know there are like five different models for the GL503 series, and to each their own, but this is a fantastic laptop for non-gamers to invest in if they get one working fantastic like mine! It’s like driving a sports car. You don’t need all that power because you want to go speed limit and avoid trouble, but it is great knowing that the power is there if you ever need it! It’s a great laptop for casual gamers! I can’t say for those that make gaming their life, as I assume those folks have crazy systems with water cooling and such going on. I gave up on that over two decades ago and looking back, my phone is probably more powerful than my system back then! Again, to each their own. This isn’t cutting edge, and that floats my boat just fine! Cutting edge requires too much time, effort, and money! It is still a VERY nice machine and does everything I could want it to! *** After playing with it for a few more weeks, I've decided to go ahead and max this out! For under $600 I was able to get it to 32GB of Memory, 1TB WD Black and 1TB WD Blue... I choose WD for the lower power consumption! The upgrades were painless and I'm enjoying them very much! (I'm finally starting to see the little dip the keyboard does when you press the keys. I thought all keyboards were like that on laptops!) Still a fantastic laptop! Here are my choices that worked just fantastic! CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (2 x 16G) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Memory (Notebook Memory) Model CMSX32GX4M2A2400C16 WD Black NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS100T2X0C WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s 2.5"/7mm Solid State Drive - WDS100T2B0A I'd also like to add that I've learned to use the 5GHz and this wireless card does FANTASTIC! I've hit almost 300Mb/s on speedtest in my room and 240Mb/s all the way in the living room! Doesn't cut in and out like tests a few years back on the 5GHz band did! I should add that my speeds should max out at 250Mb/s but Comcast has a way of surprising you like that! I HIGHLY recommend all users go ahead and get off the 2.4GHz and give the 5GHz a go! I downloaded Sims 4 since it was on sale for six bucks for the Digital Deluxe, and it didn't take long at all! Less than 5 minutes, I can tell you that! Life is good in the fast lane! :)

Big Ticket Item / Did very well

Big Ticket items are usually a pain without a white glove delivery. When I bought it on sale, I was unable to purchase any white glove delivery, so I expected this to be a PITA. Surprisingly it was easier than I expected! While the delivery company could use some improvement. (First person to call pretty much gave me a window of 7-5 and wanted an answer of half an hour advance call notice or an hour over answering my questions.) I did call back and talk to someone else who sounded like a character from Monsters Inc. but got transferred to someone who was very kind and helpful. Let me know the driver had x deliveries before me and would probably be dropping my chair off around 2. I certainly put more thought into this than was necessary! They had a lift gate so it came off the truck very nicely and the pallet it was strapped on was one of the better blue ones. Pushed it a wee bit to get the dolly under it and my sister who came to help insisted it was fine as she rolled it right to my back door. If you take the chair out of the box, it would probably go through a single door just fine. I have a double door so I just opened the two of them. Unpacking was a bit interesting. I kept the cardboard separate from the foam. I ended up keeping this huge air packing bag that looked just like a pillow! Couldn't bring myself to pop it and recycle it. Yet. The chair is a bit heavy, but I didn't have far to go with it once getting it out of the box. The trash was heavy! Probably half of what the chair weights! Best news, it was all together already! No screwing the foot rest to the chair, or plugging in wires other than the power cord! So in the end, I'm glad I didn't have the option of a white glove delivery! Saved me that expense! It was a bit of work unboxing it and my sister didn't seem to think it was difficult rolling it through the yard to the back door! I reckon it would have been a different story if we had stairs to deal with or bad weather. My experience was rather nice! The chair itself on the other hand will have it's own review! This is the seller review, not the manufacturer!

Newegg Fast

I was prepared to wait a bit longer as I knew beforehand this wouldn't be shipped via Newegg, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived! Just as quick as if it came from Newegg and packaged very well!
