MASSCOOL 5C12B3 50mm Ball CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Failed 12/31/2010

This review is from: MASSCOOL 5C12B3 50mm Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Cheap, small, effective.

Cons: Died after 10 months. Fan started moaning, processor overheated. Thankfully the processor is still OK.

Other Thoughts: I was very happy with this thing for 10 months. Worked well and was relatively silent. Of course, I'm looking to get a bit more life out of an HSF. I guess I can't complain too much, it was super cheap.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good price, exceptional product, exceptional customer service.

Cons: One stick went bad after about 4 months of use.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, buying memory is a risk all on it's own. It's arguably the most sensitive part of your computer, it's easily the smallest and probably handled the most during packing and shipping. Who's to say that any of these steps along the way didn't contribute to a possible failure at some point? I had one stick of this memory go bad after 4 months. I sent an e-mail to G.Skill tech support Friday night about it. I received a reply from them the same night about replacing it. I submitted the RMA form later that same night, and received the corresponding RMA back from them within an hour. I packaged up the defective piece and dropped it at UPS Saturday morning. I received the good RAM back on Thursday. For 6 days total turnaround (including the weekend) and plain English instructions every step of the way, I consider this customer service experience to be exceptional. 5 Eggs. Thanks, G.Skill!

Motorola Over-The-Ear Bluetooth Headset Black Bulk (H710)

4 out of 5 eggs I like Motorola, but... 08/16/2009

This review is from: Motorola Over-The-Ear Bluetooth Headset Black Bulk (H710)

Pros: - Very good call quality, loud and clear.
- Above average battery life. Depending on how much you talk, can last two days at high use and up to a week with low use.
- "Flip" off feature is three-fold: ease of power on/off helps preserve battery life, and physically makes it easier to store.
- Good signal strength. Can walk 20-25 feet away from the phone and still hear the call clearly.

Cons: My unit died after 5 months of medium use.

Other Thoughts: I have days where I use the phone a lot, maybe 8 hours per day, and some where I don't use it much at all, like an hour of talking. After 5 months, my H710 died. I'm still giving it 4 stars because of the pros listed above. I was pretty harsh on it. It spent a lot of time in my pocket, so it's been crushed, squeezed, sweated on, submerged, flipped open and shut 20 times per day, washed in the washing machine, etc. Whether or not it died because of what I did to it or because of a manufacturing defect/design flaw, it's hard to say. Others have reported the mic fails also, so it could have been either. All that said, I plan on buying another. I like it a lot when it's working!
