TP-LINK TL-SG1016D 10/100/1000Mbps Unmanaged 16-Port Gigabit Desktop/rackmountable Switch, Metal case, Power-Saving
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice solid construction. Weighs alot so multiple cords wont pull on the box. Using 10 of the ports at the moments in a home network setup without any problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Was the cheapest Unmanaged 16-port switch at the time. Was a little hesitant on getting it because of low reviews but I have no regrets. Wanted to upgrade to a 16 port switch rather than add another 8 port box in my home network. This works wonderfully for my setup. Would recommend to anyone looking to expand their wired network.

Rosewill RLFL-11003 3W 220 Lumen Heavy-Duty 3 D-Cell LED Aluminum Flashlight
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice gunmetal finish. Heavy. Bright. Used under house to replace some pipes, was able to illuminate the entire area. Co-worker was very impressed with how bright the light was and asked what it was and where they could get one.

Cons: The batteries don't fit snug inside the light. They wiggle around a little while inside, kind of makes the flashlight feel flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Great light for the price. I have flashlights that cost 3x what I purchased this for and this is much better.

Western Digital WD Internal Drive VelociRaptor WD6000BLHX 600GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Boot up time is faster than traditional 7200rpm drive. Generally a better hard drive for OS than traditional drives because of the numerous writes and rewrites being made to the drive. Significantly cheaper than a SSD byte for byte.

Cons: Originally purchased the first generation Velociraptor drive, which lasted approx 6 months before having problems. RMA'd that drive and was given a replacement, the 2nd drive lasted approx 18 months before having to RMA and then received one of these Enterprise edition drives as a replacement. That drive is going on 1+ yrs without any problems.

Other Thoughts: Toss up whether to invest in 10k HDD or a SSD. In my experience SSD tend to last longer than any 10k rpm drive I have had experience with. With that sad the Enterprise edition drives from WD are the most reliable 10k drive I have owned. And if you ever have to RMA a HDD, WD is by far the best experience I've had RMAing items.
