Rosewill REGD-TN439L0 Infrared Thermometer
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Basically the coolest thing ever 10/25/2013

This review is from: Rosewill REGD-TN439L0 Infrared Thermometer

Pros: Super fun. I can measure the temp of pretty much everything.

My wife is always worried about the temperature of various baby-related things (bottles, bathwater, etc...), and she can use it without worrying about things getting too hot.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: It survived being dropped into a full bathtub.

MSI 880GMS-E41 (FX) AM3+ AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: If nothing else, it was a good value. When it works, it works well. I'm using it with an Athlon II X3 450, and I've played some reasonably demanding games with the onboard video without problems. Media Center is working fine as well for playing video files and live/recorded over-the-air TV.

Cons: I'm just assuming this board is haunted at this point. After replacing virtually every component on the board and still having problems with locking up (both in Windows and at POST), it seems to be working now. Either the exorcism worked or it's the network drivers, because installing the version from the MSI website rather than the included CD seems to have done the trick. On the first half-dozen installs, Prime95 would lock the machine up without fail within a few minutes, but it will run solidly now.

Other Thoughts: It's fairly odd that a motherboard also for either HDMI or DVI, but not both at the same time. Changing the jumpers is simple, but it would be a pain if this was a machine that would be used with different monitors.

WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I replaced the two stock 1TB drives in a Seagate Black Armor 220 with two of these. So far, I have no complaints. The drives run cool and quiet, and my measured power consumption was lower than nearly all of my other drives. So far the performance is not noticeably different than with the 7200RPM drives it replaced, although the bottleneck in such a system is not likely to be the hard drive in any event.

Cons: None so far, although I guess we'll see after the couple of years I'd expect these to last.

Other Thoughts: Replacing the drives in the BA220 was a pain, but that's no fault of the WD drives.
