5 out of 5 eggs More cost effective than Netgear, better features&enhancements, and better than 802.3af 12/25/2016

This review is from: BV Tech PoE-SW800G 8-Port Gigabit Full Power PoE Rackmount Switch, IEEE 802.3at/af Compliant, PoE Plus(PoE+) Standard, 130W High Budget

Pros: Maximum 130 watt output on power supply than the Netgear GS110TP which has 65watts. All 8 ports of this BV-tech unit has 8 POE+ ports versus the Netgear GS110TP which only has 4 non-POE+ ports. Built in power supply versus the Netgear GS110TP which has bulky external power brick. BV-Tech unit has pwr on/off switch which is lacking on the Netgear GS110TP. Rack mountable while Netgear GS110TP is NOT. Most importantly the BV-tech unit is a 802.3at certified poe switch while the Netgear GS110TP is only certified as the older 802.3af

Cons: Better visual LED display on the Netgear GS110TP unit however this is aesthetics only. Shop around for this as prices are all over the map and discounted even by Newegg.

Other Thoughts: If yo are in the market for any replacement switch even for poe switches make sure you spend the extra few bucks and get one with 802.3at certification with gigabit speeds. 10/100 switches are going "bye-bye" not to mention they are horribly slow especially if you have a business or FIOS broadband connection

SYBA SI-ADA20155 IO Crest USB 3.0 to SATA 6G Cable Adapter for 2.5

3 out of 5 eggs Reliable but NOT cheapest.... 08/17/2015

This review is from: SYBA SI-ADA20155 IO Crest USB 3.0 to SATA 6G Cable Adapter for 2.5" Hard Drives

Pros: Busy upgrading household pc's and needed another of these USB3 to SATA cable adapters. Spec'ing a spare I decided this time to purchase from another seller other than Newegg just to mix it up a bit. Found a identical cable at half the price on a bidding site. Downside I had to wait almost 2 weeks for this overseas shipment and delivery. My wait was rewarded with a perfectly functional cable which I will give to another family member per his want. If you can stand the wait consider using the alternative bidding site which uses paypal

Cons: Dropping $10 along with another $2 for shipping is kind of frivolous unless you have a emergency situation. For me, I could wait the 2 weeks just to pay half the price along with FREE shipping

Other Thoughts: All these imported cables Syba included are all practically made overseas in the same factory...why pay twice the price for the same quality?

5 out of 5 eggs Cheapest hi-cap SSD if...... 08/17/2015

This review is from: Crucial BX100 500GB SATA 2.5 inch Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT500BX100SSD1

Pros: SSD pricing continually dropping and the occasional sale items pushed me into getting this 0.5 TB budget SSD. Sale price of $159 with FREE shipping (EggSaver shipping...ugh!) was further discounted by me using Visa checkout along with accessing Newegg via bringing this new SSD down to $147...cheapest I could get as of this day

Cons: Spec for spec it's NOT a genuine Samsung Pro however you cannot beat paying $147 for a 0.5 TB SSD. No cloning s/w provided however at this day and age there are now many FREE cloning and backup utilities out there which will save you your hard earned money. Clonezilla or AOMEI BackUpper utilities for us presently...easy, reliable but more importantly, FREE!

Other Thoughts: Priced the latest Acronis True Image s/w however it was not going to happen since it appears having to pay for a 1-seat activation of Acronis was simply not cost effective for our household. I still looking for a 1TB SSD but refuse to pay in excess of $300...will wait patiently as SSD pricing continually dropping...maybe late this year!
