VANTEC ST-530S3-BK Aluminum 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Worked well for a while, then just crapped out 04/18/2016

This review is from: VANTEC ST-530S3-BK Aluminum 5.25" SATA USB 3.0 External 5.25" Optical Drive Enclosure USB 3.0 External Interface

Pros: I installed a Bluray recorder in the case and it worked well for a while. Installing a drive in the case was quite simple.

Cons: It's been a few months now and it crapped out. The power supply is okay - the installed drive powers up but the USB interface is dead to the world. It had been intermittent at one point with my Windows 8 machine and now it's a doorstop.

Other Thoughts: I may end up having to buy another just to be able to read my backups but I'm not happy about pouring more money down a rathole.

Kroo Black Soft Neoprene Washable Messenger Shoulder Bag Case Cover Sleeve for 10
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A perfect fit for the Acer Chromebook C710, it comes with an outside pocket and is as well made as any other neoprene case.

Cons: I was hoping it might be a little thicker. As it is, it doesn't offer much protection. The pocket is just barely big enough for the wall wart the C710 came with - it may not hold a larger power supply.

Other Thoughts: There was a piece of foam inside for shipping and it turns out that if you leave it there it offers a good amount of stiffness and protection for the computer. I paid about 1/2 the price of any other case for this one and it was a deal that I'd do again in a second. Cases that are specifically designed for 11.6" Chromebooks are rare - especially ones with an outside pocket for the power supply.

RiDATA 700MB 52X CD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model R80JS52-NOB100N
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: RiData does make good discs

Cons: These discs arrive WITHOUT A SPINDLE!! Despite the description that says "Spindle Disc", there is no spindle to hold them together. In shipping the plastic shrink around them broke and the discs were scattered through the box. Several of them appear scratched beyond use.

In retrospect I see the photograph doesn't show a spindle, but it never occurred to me that they'd end up shipping loose in the box. I'm disappointed in Newegg for not making this clear.

Other Thoughts: If Newegg mentioned in the description that these were simply bulk CDs and not packaged in a spindle instead of putting the word "spindle" in the description, I would have ordered something else instead.
