VANTEC NexStar HX4R NST-640S3R-BK Aluminum / Plastic 3.5

Pros: Great system for Movie storage.

Newegg sells a lot of nonworking items, but this HDD enclosure actually does work, exactly as I wanted it to.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: I use this to keep my movie library. No raid or anything else, just four disks running independently with ample storage.

I can turn it on if I want to see a movie in my collection, or I can turn it off to keep the disks from wearing out. Most of the time it is off.

I liked it so much, I bought another one and have HD TV movies on it. It is amazing how soon I can fill up a disk. With thousands of titles, in different formats, it is quite easy. This thing just works GREAT!

At $160 a pop for 4TB disks (Seagate at Newegg) and $120 for this enclosure, after a year or so of buying disks, when you need them and on sale, you end up with 16TB of storage for $760. All available when you need it, easily taken with you if need be, and stored off-line to extend the life or your disks.

ASUS P8B WS LGA 1155 Intel C206 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server/Workstation Motherboard

Pros: Board working 24/7 since I bought it. All in all, I think this is a great MB. It is certainly better than the AsRock board that never worked and is still sitting next to me in a cardboard box after nearly a year. I am sticking with Asus.

Cons: I seem to be having some problems with the USB 2.0 ports, i.e., some seem to have quit working. I suppose an internal connector could have vibrated loose. I have lots of ports, so not that big of a problem. Everything else is working fine!

Other Thoughts: As for NewEgg being a decent retailer, the problem is they sell TOO MANY defective products. For example, I was going to buy a WD 2TB HDD today (on sale for 89), but the return rate is just too high. It's a hard drive and I need it to work - is that asking too much? Nearly a third of buyers gave it one star (73 NewEgg customers).

Even this MB by Asus that I like a lot has 20% of buyers providing a one star review.

My point: even if you do have a good return experience - I did not - we should not have to return anything (certainly not 1 out of 3 for a hard drive).

Further, if whatever we buy does not work, NewEgg should take it back regardless of how much original packaging is still around.

I just do not understand a business model based on selling defective products. Do you?

ASUS P8B WS LGA 1155 Intel C206 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server/Workstation Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs great - 24/7. Had problems with an ASRock MB, and went to ASUS for better quality. This board is GREAT!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Although this is a great Motherboard, I have quit using Newegg. After spending more than $10,000 for personal computing equipment, I am now sitting on an ASRock Motherboard that is worthless. Maybe you spend more than me and get better service/satisfaction, but I have little use for an online retailer that will not FIX a problem for a good customer! Who needs fast shipping, when it's a bad product that is being shipped? Just look at all of the DOA comments about Newegg products or other negative reviews. If an Online retailer wants to last, they need to either stop selling bad products or take it back "as is," after someone has wasted hours of time trying to get it to work. Just because some of the packaging is missing is a poor excuse for refusing to accept a product within the proper timeframe.
