Pros: I have owned this drive for about a month now and have had such a great experience with it. Once I max it out with my Movies/Music/Documents, I'll probably buy another one to expand. With the 7200RPM speed brings faster read/writes over the network. The price may seem high for the device, but for the storage amount you're getting, it justifies it. Before the drive arrived I only had a 2TB drive in my NAS barely supporting my media library. Once I installed this, I felt like I would never need anymore storage ever again as it ate everything on the old drive and still has more for future storage. Temperatures remained around 35 degrees Celsius while loading data to it. As digital data gets bigger an bigger I can see a lot of people moving to these drives to be able to store all their data. This is one of the greatest NAS drives you can buy.
Cons: The only con I had with this drive was the noise it produced, but considering the 7200 RPM speed, it is well worth it.
Other Thoughts: I would greatly recommend to anyone needing to purchase a drive for their NAS. This drive is built for NAS systems and nothing else. These drives will last a very long time due to their production setup. Newegg delivers these drives in those great shipping bubble things that surround the whole device so even UPS and Fedex can't damage them with a good drop or toss.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Before I get into the pros, I need to tell you I did receive a defective unit to begin with. I talked with HP support and they determined the ink cartridge holder was defective. They sent me a replacement unit and had me return the defective unit and the replacement unit works really great. Out of the box, this is one HEAVY printer...if you can please have someone help you remove it from the box. Setup was a breeze out of the box, just follow the on-screen instructions on the printer and then finish up by getting the drivers for your computer. One of the best features I love about this printer is its ability to print on both sides at once. It speedily prints the pages. The ink cartridges included contain a load of ink, but even if you run out, you can use HP ink refill service (cost involved) to quickly get ink once you get low. This is a great printer for offices that use 2 different page sizes as it contains 2 separate paper trays to house the different papers. The scanner on this thing is great as well as you can get great scans of important paperwork by upping the scan settings. I haven't had a chance or need to use the fax portion of the printer, but I am sure it will work for anyone that still is using that antiquated technology. One of the other great features is this is a really quiet printer, so if needs to be around employees in your office, it won't bother them while they are talking on the phone.
Cons: Other than the issue of receiving a defective unit to begin with, I really have not much in the way of cons, but just little minor annoyances. The touchscreen is a bit funky to mess around with, I had to enter in my wifi password a few times, but after you get through setup, you'll barely use it as you can control most everything through the computer. You'll want to have the paper holder extension bar open to catch the paper as it prints, otherwise it falls to the floor.
Other Thoughts: This is one great printer for business or someone who prints a lot at home. This is not meant to be a photo printer as others had stated in their reviews, but since photo printing is not its primary purpose I don't want to remove a rating egg. I would recommend for anyone who loves saving the planet using double sided printing and needs a quick and speedy printer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem
Pros: Being leery of Linksys products, I was a bit skeptical of this device...BUT, this has done nothing but impress me. In the box you get the modem, a power cord, an ethernet cord and some instructions. Now installing this might differ depending on who your ISP is, but for me was super easy and quick. I have Charter communications as my ISP and they offer a web installer which is pretty easy and quick to setup your new modem. Of course, me being the dummy that I am decided to try and set this up right after an eye exam where they dilated my eyes and I was having trouble reading the mac address off the device...pro tip, do not try and setup with dilated eyes! I was having trouble with the online setup (because I was mistyping my information with my dilated eyes) so I called in the customer support and they were able to set it up pretty quickly. (Be leery of your ISP and if you do call in make sure they are not charging you for the phone call...luckily mine offered the free help, others might be different) As soon as it was connected I was sure to do a speed test and made sure I was still getting the speeds I was paying for from my ISP, which I was. For those wondering if this device could increase your speed: the device is not set to do this...to get a faster speed your ISP must provide it. This device is merely here to get you out of the rental fee you may be paying your ISP for your current modem. It does offer higher throughput of speed delivery than some modems, but again, your ISP must provide that speed. So out of the box and now for a good week I have had not issues with the device what-so-ever and I will be returning my rental modem back to Charter so I can save the $5-10 I pay for it each month.
Cons: I do not have any cons for this device that would subtract an egg. If you have your connection point in your bedroom, you may get annoyed by the LED's on the device, but you can always cover it with some tape if it bothers you during the night.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this device to anyone looking to get out of those ridiculous modem box rental fees that the ISP's push. It may seem a bit expensive up front, but in the end you will surely save money after the initial year of owning it as you won't be paying the rental fees anymore. Setup is a breeze (at least in my situation with Charter Communications).READ FULL REVIEW
