StarTech S354UFER Steel and Plastic 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid construction other than the front door.
Multiple connection options.

Cons: Anemic usb performance.
No usb3

Other Thoughts: I am transferring files from this enclosure to a storage server and MAN does the usb suck.

Started out ok - around 30mbps - which is typical for usb2.

Unfortunately, it then degrades to about 5-6mbps.

HP LaserJet Pro M1536dnf MFP Up to 25 ppm Monochrome Laser Multifunction Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Airprint
Surprisingly rugged
Good speed

Cons: Consummable cost

Other Thoughts: I took a chance on this printer, and it's worked wonderfully - for our usage.

This is the designated fax device for the office - thankfully, our fax volume is low.

I initially had misgivings, as HP's quality has taken a serious hit over the last decade, but this has held up very well, as in I haven't had to touch it.

I'm ordering another for one of our retail locations for staff use.

Their print volume is low, faxes are rare, and it will save them a trip to the main office.

Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

1 out of 5 eggs Quality materials - poor engineering and execution 06/22/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Top quality components from Cherry.
Price is good.
You can disassemble to repair without it falling apart.

Cons: Components are wasted due to poor design and construction.

Like others, I ended up with a detached usb port.

I thought it was one of my users doing something stupid, until I pulled it apart.

The design is flawed in that it uses a detachable connector without providing for strain relief.

With the cable coming out the back, it acts as a lever that pries up on the surface mount connector.

That's the design problem.

Additionally, when I opened the kb up to repair it, ALL of the solder joints look dull like cold solder joints.

They aren't - or I would have dead keys, but it shows where the fault is created - poor soldering technique, applied to a poorly engineered connector.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill, don't bother offering me an RMA.

What would be the point?

It's clear I'm more competent than you guys are, and I hadn't touched an iron in years until today.

The repair is fairly easy if one has done any electronic soldering at all.

If your soldering technique is heralded by the smell of burning flesh, you might want to let Rosewill have another shot at it.
