SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Capacity and speed (while it worked)

Cons: I had to wait for a couple of weeks before installing the SSD. After installing it in my new Lenovo ThinkPad T440s, it worked for a couple of days, then blue-screened and died. T440s has a basic disk diagnostics in the BIOS which found a couple of failures (random read, etc). Unfortunately I was one day over the Newegg's replacement period (1 month) so I have to go through Samsung. I've created an RMA, but it's not an immediate one - "wait, we will contact you". Here I am with $400 gone, no SSD and waiting for the good will of Samsung's support. Total disappointment.

Other Thoughts: SSDs are known for their high initial failure rate and DOAs. If you don't have a strong support, they turn into a pain. Make sure to test the SSDs you have bought from Newegg immediately if you want to catch the "replacement period". Otherwise you end up in the mercy of the manufacturer support.

HP Officejet Pro 8500A PLUS CM756A Up to 15 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality Wireless Thermal Inkjet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It is supposed to have a duplex on the scanner. When it works. It works only sometimes, so this is actually not a "pro".

Cons: This is the worst scanner/printer I've ever had. I've had ink and laser HPs, Dells, Canons, OKI, Panasonic and others. This one ... it's hopeless. If you shut it down, you have to wait 10-15 minutes to power it back on while it "tests". So don't shut it down. The auto-fed scanner - I tried to scan my 26 pages of loan application and ... ended with 22. Tried again - 21. Tried in sets of 5-5-5-5-6, the last set was 4. 3 times. I've watched ALL of the pages go through one by one, but ... some are not included into the final PDF. The software inside of this printer is not full of bugs - it's one GIANT BUG itself. Not to mention the different settings depending on the target of your scan - memory card, one settings. PC - another settings... This is THE WORST scanner I've ever seen. HP - you owe me and MANY other users AN APOLOGY and a REFUND!

Other Thoughts: I bought this "thing" with the hope to scan all of my paper documents into an electronic format. A duplex-fed scanner costs 2x-3x more, I thought this could do the job. Totally wrong. DO NOT BUY this thing, it's a total waste of (A LOT!) of money.

Sony 3D WiFi Ready Blu-ray Player BDP-S470
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Beware - streams audio output to BOTH HDMI and Digital audio 05/12/2010

This review is from: Sony 3D WiFi Ready Blu-ray Player BDP-S470

Pros: This is regarding BDP-N460, but applies to BDP-S470, too. It's a good player with all the proper quality and features. Streams Netflix great. Now see the Cons.

Cons: I have purchased BDP-N460 after a great deal of hesitation if I should buy the Samsung BD-P3600 instead. I've always been a Sony fan, my TV and Receiver are Sony so I've decided in favor of Sony in the end. I have an older Receiver with no HDMI input - Sony STR-K840P. It has a nice digital input and I've hooked the BDP-N460. To my surprise, the Blu-Ray player has NO OPTION TO SELECT audio output and the audio is streamed to BOTH the HDMI (which goes into my Sony TV) and the Receiver! This way if you control the audio just at the Receiver, you must either mute or lower the volume of your TV to 0 or disable the TV speakers. As it happens, I am using the TV speakers to watch aerial TV, so turning the volume down is an annoyance. Muting is also not an option because of the sign "Mute" on the screen.
I've started a chat with the Sony technical support. After 2 hours of going back and forth I was told that my problem cannot be solved. Sony would not return my product.

Other Thoughts: (continued from Cons) Sony would also not exchange BDP-N460 for a model which can control the output. And they don't have one that can. In a nutshell, I am facing a serious limitation of the product, which from Consumer perspective is a clear defect and Sony doesn't care to even mitigate my dissatisfaction. Sony makes this statement after I've spent $2900 for a Sony TV, $650 for a Sony receiver/DVD-changer, $181 for a Sony Blu-Ray player, $100+ for 2 Sony baby monitors and so on large amount of Sony products. How can I remain a loyal Sony Customer?!
Back to the issue - the only "acceptable" workaround in the case is to connect the TV output to the Receiver, set the TV speakers to off (Menu - Settings - Setup - Speakers - Off) and watch TV with the Receiver on. This uses extra power and you will have it reflected on your monthly electricity bill.

<sigh> My Sony Blu-Ray player is my last Sony purchase. Not because it's a bad product, but because Sony doesn't care about the Consumer.
