zBoost SOHO MAX, dual-band cell phone signal booster up to 3500 sq. ft. ZB545M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Worked better than I could have imagined! 03/06/2017

This review is from: zBoost SOHO MAX, dual-band cell phone signal booster up to 3500 sq. ft. ZB545M

Pros: Very easy to install. No setup involved, just plug and play after finding out where the strongest cell signal is. Installed in an industrial kitchen environment where we recently lost a nearby cell tower due to a highway overpass bridge replacement. We were having issues with no service or only 1 bar inside the building. We now have 5 full 4G/LTE bars for every carrier our employees have (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) - which is actually better than the 3-4 we get outside! I like the simplicity of the flashing green lights after turning it on that shows you how many dB below optimum signal you are. Ours actually didn't even blink, just went solid green!

Cons: No clear directions on how to safely remove the back plate on the base for wall mounting. We didn't want to risk cracking it open, so it is sitting on a shelf.

Other Thoughts: I was hesitant to purchase this as many of these types of devices have very mixed reviews. We were missing vendor calls, so I took the chance hoping we would maybe get 2 or 3 bars. Never would I have imagined that this would actually make the inside of our building have better cell reception than standing outside in an open parking lot! I would buy another one of these without hesitation!

MSI Radeon HD 6450 DirectX 11 R6450-MD1GD3/LP-R 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No external power required. Perfect for my needs (basic office usage, but wanted to free up RAM resources used by on-chip Intel graphics) and quite cheap.

Cons: Box did not include small form factor (SFF) brackets shown in photos. I had to get creative and cut the full size bracket that shipped on the card in order to fit into a slim PC.

Other Thoughts: Be sure you don't need the SFF brackets if buying this refurbished. For such a cheap card, it was much easier for me to just mangle the full bracket and solder the pieces onto other PCI plates than to try to contact MSI or get an RMA.

Dell Optiplex 390 Small Form Factor I5-2400 Quad Core 3.1Ghz 8Gb 250Gb SSD Dvd Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit

5 out of 5 eggs Great value and exactly as described. 02/15/2017

This review is from: Dell Optiplex 390 Small Form Factor I5-2400 Quad Core 3.1Ghz 8Gb 250Gb SSD Dvd Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit

Pros: Very clean refurbished computer. Well packed. Great deal on a replacement computer for light office usage, for not much more than the price of the Windows license alone! The SSD and 8 GB of memory really help to make this just as responsive for general office tasks as a new computer costing 5 times as much. Having the Pro license gives exceptional additional value added as I do not need to pay for a 3rd party remote access software and can use the built-in Remote Desktop for administration tasks, which is not included with Home licenses.

Cons: Only issue I ran into was that the scratch-off silver Microsoft put over part of the Windows product key didn't come off cleanly and damaged one of the letters. Fortunately I was able to enter the product key after just a few tries. This is a common issue with Microsoft's use of scratch-off on Windows and Office licenses, and not the fault of the vendor so no eggs lost.

Other Thoughts: I would certainly recommend this computer for anyone looking for a great value in a basic office computer.
