Roku SE Streaming Media Player 2710SE - Certified Refurbished

4 out of 5 eggs Great for the price 12/20/2016

This review is from: Roku SE Streaming Media Player 2710SE - Certified Refurbished

Pros: Good deal on a refurbished Roku. Looks brand new and works fine. Remote looks new as well and works fine.

Cons: A little slow to boot up. The Netflix app is an older version and not very fancy to look at, but it works.

Other Thoughts: Got for my technophobe senior mom to stream Netflix. Works just fine for that, and the remote is unique enough that it doesn't get lost in her big bowl of remote controls.

4 out of 5 eggs Roomy, classy, and silent. A sophisticated gentleman of a case. 12/05/2016

This review is from: Antec P100 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Tons of room inside with rubber wire grommits/cable management flaps.
Lots of room behind/under motherboard panel for cables.
Easy to access and clean screen fan filters really cut down on dust.
Foam padding on doors and panels make it nearly silent.
Very flexible fan arrangement possibilities and different sizes supported.
Great side load hard drive mounting system.

Cons: Only comes with 2 fans and they are not great. I ditched them and used better ones.
The door only opens left. This is dumb, but not enough to deduct an egg. Would have been easy to make it reversible but it's not. And while it can be removed, it doesn't look good without it.
Only 2 5.25 bays and no 3.5 bays. This doesn't really shock me but you would think it would have 3 or 4 5.25 bays considering the size. See optional comments on why you may or may not care.

Other Thoughts: 5.25 bay gripe... only 2 bays. Use an optical drive and you only have 1. But I have other smaller cases (like Antec 300 or Sonata) that have 3 bays. If I wanted to install a removable drive bay in the front, I can't. Not enough room.

Door gripe... it would have been SO easy to make it reversible but nope. So I wanted another one of these to use as a server, but the spot it would be in would either be a right hand door or no door at all. Neither are doable here.

Some people have complained about the audio ports on the front causing shorts/issues but I don't use it.

The included fans are junk. Antec should have included better ones, not their bottom of the barrel $1 fans.

If not for those minor issues, this would be a 5 star for sure.

TOSHIBA X300 HDWE160XZSTA 6TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Silent. Fast. Whats not to love? Great deal when they were on sale. Retail box drives, air packing in box, you could drop these from 10 feet and the drive would be fine. Which is good because.... see cons below...

Cons: Lucky the drives are retail and packed really well, because Newegg tossed 2 of these in a good size box with a couple of those plastic air-pillow bubble things. They could move rattle around in the bigger box easily. Come on Newegg, it's 2016... spend a little more on bubble wrap or something. But the drives were intact and work fine, so no Eggs lost.

Other Thoughts: If these had been OEM/Loose drives without the retail packing, no way these would have survived packed like that. Which is part of the reason I don't buy OEM drives online.
