1 out of 5 eggs This review is for the RP-N53 - watch out with ASUS! 12/13/2016

This review is from: ASUS RP-AC52 AC750 Repeater / Access Point / Media Bridge

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't detect 5GHz networks.

Other Thoughts: I purchased the RP-N53 model which doesn't seem to be for sale here any longer, but the Newegg search page redirects here, which is why I am leaving the review on this one. This model looks almost identical to the RP-N53 so I want to warn anyone who may be considering it. Unfortunately, I didn't find out until after I had purchased the item and let it sit on my shelf for a little longer than the return period that many of these units are faulty and don't work with the 5GHz band. ASUS replaced mine under warranty with another defective unit (they would not answer my repeated requests to know what they did to fix/validate the unit, because they apparently did nothing other than throw a scratched one in a box back to me).
The replacement unit they sent still does not function and they refuse to communicate any further with me.
I have also tried to contact Newegg to resolve on my behalf, but Newegg also refuses to respond to repeated requests.
VERY disappointed in both ASUS and Newegg on this one.

MOTOROLA TZ700 Roadster In-car Speakerphone with MotoSpeak / Stream Audio to Car Speaker (89423N) – Retail Packaging
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Nice form factor

Cons: Unboxed and paired to phone while charging. I was disappointed at first because apparently my phone doesn't support the feature that allows you to initiate a call from the hard button on the speaker. Considering I got this for $20 after rebate I decided that I could live with that since I could install the Motospeak app on my phone and initiate a call with one widget press.

We tested both to and from my phone and my wife's. Absolutely horrible. I had to speak at a higher than normal conversation level with the think 6" from my mouth to be heard. Which means that in a car with all the ambient white noise I would be screaming. Additionally (and worse) the calling party's voice was fedback through the mic and they could hear an echo of everything they said. It wasn't like a faint murmur either. When you could hear from the called end the caller's voice was very muffled - so the mic is just junk.

Other Thoughts: Didn't test any other features since call quality is horrid. Back in box and awaiting Newegg to provide a shipping label back for this atrocious piece of trash.

Diablotek DA Series PSDA500 500W ATX Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs dead - 6 months maybe? 03/20/2013

This review is from: Diablotek DA Series PSDA500 500W ATX Power Supply

Pros: cheap $$ - bought for $20 locally.

Cons: Had issues from the get go - 500W not enough to power an old Athlon, standard GFX and 4 HDD? I think should be...
Flaky on occasional, but just basically exploded on me (literally - sparks shooting out).

Other Thoughts: get what you pay for...or don't get...
