SanDisk Ultra 32GB microSDHC Flash Card with adapter – Global Model SDSDQUAN-032G-G4A
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small, cheap, fast

Cons: Used in my Samsung Galaxy S5. Phone started locking up when trying to access the device after a few months; pulled it out and tried to access it on my wife's Windows 7 laptop, but it couldn't. Popped it into my Linux laptop and ran an fsck, came back with about three dozen unaccessible clusters, even after a format.

Vantec NexStar TX 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - Aluminum case
- Inside of the enclosure is larger, so you could fit fairly fat drives

Cons: Plastic ends are fairly cheap with super tiny screws holding them in place, and if you're not careful (or just swap drives too much,) you'll strip out the screw holes (I've already stripped out a screw hole just trying to put the thing together the first time...

Doesn't have a separate power connector to allow you to use an external power supply if your drive takes more juice than you can/want to provide via USB.

The larger size of the case could potentially allow the drive to flop around, and keeps the drive from actually touching the enclosure, so the whole aluminum part is kind of pointless.

You have to attach a little tiny plastic sheet to the PCB side of the hard drive to protect it from potentially shorting out against the case

Other Thoughts: I'd purchased two of these to replace the old Rosewell IDE drive enclosures I'd been using for backups because the hard drives were running out of space, and I didn't want to buy new larger IDE laptop drives. If I'd had it to do over again, I would've just paid a little bit extra to get the SATA version of the Rosewell enclosurest.

Winegard DGS2200 Satellite TV - Receivers & Accessories

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing reception!! 03/08/2012

This review is from: Winegard DGS2200 Satellite TV - Receivers & Accessories

Pros: This is an amazing product. Even with the antenna indoors on the second floor of our house, we're able to receive 22 DTV channels, including ones that antennaweb says I don't have a chance of receiving. This is a "green" antenna (supposedly up to 30 mile range) and we're getting strong signals from "red" stations almost 60 miles away - and that's with the thing inside! Can't imagine how well it'll do when we actually mount it outside on the roof!

Cons: Isn't free? :P

Other Thoughts: If you want to get even stronger signal strength, you can purchase the Winegard GS-Wing Sensar upgrade attachment, it's supposed to give you a 100% boost in UHF signal strength (which is what 90% of our DTV channels are.) NewEgg doesn't offer it, but you can find it elsewhere for under $30, and the customer reviews say that it lives up to its expectations too.
