Incipio feather SHINE Titanium Silver Ultralight Hard Shell Case For iPhone 5 / 5S IPH-870
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs ok, but not up to Incipio quality 10/22/2012

This review is from: Incipio feather SHINE Titanium Silver Ultralight Hard Shell Case For iPhone 5 / 5S IPH-870

Pros: Unique look, Incipio quality, Open access to all buttons and ports

Cons: Slippery, Painted faux brushed aluminum isn't durable, Not the best fit

Other Thoughts: I own three Incipio cases for previous generations of iPhones and all of them are superb, so I figured I couldn't go wrong with this one. Unfortunately I was wrong. This case looks great with the faux aluminum backside and it fits well--except on the left side where the large open hole for the volume buttons and mute slider. Because of this cut-out, the plastic is not rigid enough and doesn't fit as tightly as it does on the right side (where there are no cut-outs). I love that the top and bottom are wide open so all ports and buttons are easily accessible. This can also be a curse because your phone may be damaged if dropped on the top or bottom where the case does not cover the phone. The backside is painted and started chipping away in under two weeks of light use. The phone sits in my pocket with my keys for a few minutes a day while I walk from my car to my office, then sits flat on my desk for the rest of the day. Very unusual wear. The Plexitonium material is very light and rigid but it's also very slippery. The sides are also curved ever so slightly so it's actually difficult to grab quickly when sitting flat on a flat surface. I've actually dropped it twice on my desk when grabbing for it too quickly--fortunately the case provided enough protection so nothing happened to my phone. Overall I'm disappointed with this purchase and have to go through the pains of returning it for a refund so I can buy another case :( I tried to exchange it directly with Incipio but they denied me because I didn't buy it direct from them. Newegg's service is above and beyond as usual though and is the reason this review isn't a 1-star review.

Rosewill RX35-AT-SU3 BLK Full Aluminum Cover, Metal Tray 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: nice aluminum case doesn't require a cooling fan
trusted company

Cons: didn't work

Other Thoughts: I have this same 3.5" ext. enclosure in the USB 2.0/eSATA model. That one has worked flawlessly so I thought it was a no brainer to upgrade to the USB 3.0 version. Not true.

I installed my 2TB drive, plugged it in and powered up. The activity light would blink for half a second then nothing. The enclosure never was able to boot up at all :(

I immediately submitted a return auth and shipped the enclosure back the next day for a replacement. Then I started reading other reviews on other Web sites and saw that lots of others had similar problems. So I contacted Newegg and they were able to switch my replacement request to a full refund. I also shipped the return too fast and had to shell out money for shipment. Newegg was nice enough to reimburse me for that as well with a gift card.

Thanks Newegg!

Service: 5+ stars

ADATA Classic Series 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model C802 8G Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs works fine, small enough for me 09/03/2008

This review is from: ADATA Classic Series 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model C802 8G Black

Pros: Faster than my OCZ Mini-kart 1GB USB drive. Good, locking slide-out mechanism.

Cons: Doesn't have a LED activity light. Tight fit for side-by-side USB ports if you plan to use this drive with other USB devices at the same time.

Other Thoughts: If you USB ports are stacked, you'll be able to plug something else above or below this drive. If your ports are side-by-side, it may not fit. I knew it didn't have a LED light and I'm learning to live without it. The plastic case is light and it doesn't feel like there is much need for it--they could've easily made it at least 1mm smaller in width and thickness. I haven't tested it yet, but in daily file transfers it is faster than my old OCZ Mini-kart 1GB drive. Shiny plastic colored top scratches easily, if you care about that kind of thing.
