Roku 3 Digital HD Streaming Media player w/ Headphones Game Remote

4 out of 5 eggs Refurbished means used 05/29/2016

This review is from: Roku 3 Digital HD Streaming Media player w/ Headphones Game Remote

Pros: The Roku 3 is buttery smooth compared to the Roku 2 XD that it replaces. I upgraded because I needed a unit that would use the 5.8 GHz band of my router. There is too much interference on the 2.4 GHz band in my neighborhood. Being able to play different games on the Roku is a plus. Even Netflix is highly upgraded on this, compared to the XD. The remote reaches further, and doesn't have the limited range that the XD remote has. The processor on the Roku 3 is a great upgrade from the Roku XD.

Cons: The first thing I noticed when I fired up my "refurbished" Roku 3 from Newegg, was that it booted up straight to the home screen with channels already populated. Yes, my worst suspicions were confirmed when I navigated to the settings screen and saw someone's e-mail address already in the account name. Obviously, the company did not take the time to actually do a factory reset on the unit before reselling it!

The one thing I don't like about Roku is that they list some channels as free, but the user finds out later that it is only a free TRIAL for a pay channel. That really irks me!

Other Thoughts: My old Roku 2 XD never did work right. I was against paying more money to get the Roku 3, but I'm glad I did

Rosewill Stallion Series RD400-2-SB - 400-Watt ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply

2 out of 5 eggs Go with a better brand 03/10/2015

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD400-2-SB - 400-Watt ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Shuts off abruptly, not reliable

Other Thoughts: I selected this Rosewill Stallion as a replacement for another Rosewill power supply that developed a loud fan. Fast forward two years later, and this has begun to shut down all of a sudden. I run it in a server that must stay up 24/7, and in that, this one has failed. It is getting adequate cooling, and it is not being drained, yet it will stay up for only up for only about 3-5 days at a time without shutting down. It is powering a basic motherboard with no additional video card or other high drain additions. This has been my last purchase of a Rosewill power supply. Going forward, I will stick with name brands.
