Northwestern Bell NWB-20270-1 Big Button with Caller ID WHITE

2 out of 5 eggs Great phone if it had a power adapter 05/16/2013

This review is from: Northwestern Bell NWB-20270-1 Big Button with Caller ID WHITE

Pros: Big buttons, caller ID display is large, speakerphone, has tilt-up feet for angled viewing, I like the fact that it has a mute button, backlit dailpad keys are blue LED and not overly bright which is nice, you can turn off the ringer, always a plus if you have other phones in the house already

Cons: Sadly you get only basic phone functionality with the shipped unit, if you want the caller ID, speakerphone or any other 'special' functions you must either purchase 4-AA batteries or a 6-volt AC adapter, which is not mentioned on Newegg's description, why they would sell a phone this way amazes me, I would expect it to have a power adapter if it has all these great features.

Other Thoughts: If I have to make another purchase for a power adapter, why couldn't it just be included with the original unit and raise the cost a bit??

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.10 ST380215A 80GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, quiet, cheap, that says it all, it is also shorter than most 3.5" drives so more space for heat dissipation, but that is not a problem either as it doesn't get hot... Great value

Cons: 50% failure rate for the two that I purchased one died out of the box, and I didn't find this out until 6 months down the road, so instead of being able to get Newegg to process a return I have to go through Seagate online and pay to ship to them...
Check your drives when you get them!!!
Don't just stick them in a box for later use...

Other Thoughts: Check your drives when you get them!!!

Crucial Ballistix 512MB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model BL6464AA804
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs very cool, fast, mobo' has no probs with this great memory :)

Cons: tight fit on my mobo with the heatsinks causing the memory to be pressed against each other (two sticks on my board)

Other Thoughts: Overall I have always been happy with Crucial memory, they have never let me down, this memory is being used in a mobile pc application and so the heat sinked version was a necessity. So far so good and it runs cool...
