HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lots of space (I have the 6TB model
Basically quiet
Great performance

Cons: Unknown compatibility with existing NAS systems, so you have to figure it out on your own.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to clarify a couple of misconceptions on the review by Edith A. She is confusing the drive # and the kit #. The drive number is indeed HDNxxxx; the kit number is H3IKxxxx. A little research on her part would have revealed this. You can find it here:$file/DS_NAS_spec.pdf

This drive is under warranty from HGST, regardless of what Ms. A claims, as I have been through this process before. They track warranties by serial number, not receipt.

ThinkCentre Desktop PC M57P Core 2 Duo 2.3 GHz 2GB 80 GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great Value for the Price 02/26/2013

This review is from: ThinkCentre Desktop PC M57P Core 2 Duo 2.3 GHz 2GB 80 GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Green/low power consumption
- Solid build, typical ThinkCentre
- Surprisingly quick
- Runs Win7 just fine

Cons: - Small drive
- Takes forever to boot

Other Thoughts: I can think of a dozen uses for this, but here are some ideas:
- Lightweight web server
- Workstation for entry level user
- Workstation for a startup, non-for-profit, or other lean organization
- Single purpose workstation for basic office users (email, browsing, documents, etc.)
- Computer for your grandparents

I bought this to donate to our children's preschool. They just needed a computer to use with their educational CD-ROM's. I wanted a computer that could stand the rigors of a bunch of 4-5 year old children. The keyboard and mouse are basic, but functional. The ThinkCentre itself is incredibly solid.

Thankfully, it wasn't loaded up with all the usual Lenovo software/bloatware, so it actually runs fast, for a disk-based system at least (haven't had one of those in years). I disabled automatic updates and did not install a virus scanner, as they are not connected to a network. I loaded TuxPaint, GCompris, and Starfall and they all run fast. They should be good for a few years at least.

At the discounted price that I paid, about $170, this was a no brainer.

Rosewill RK-9000I - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs I love it I love I love it 01/25/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000I - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switches

Pros: - Excellent tactile feedback
- Exceptional accuracy
- Not as noisy as the the old IBM M mechanical keyboards
- Solid build, metal frame
- All of the keys are in the right place
- Comfortable typing for hours

Cons: - No frills (no USB ports, headphone jack, etc.)
- Not keen on the white color of the frame, but it is growing on me (TRS-80 anyone?)

Other Thoughts: I have two IBM M mechanical keyboards from way back that still work and will probably work 20 years from now. I stopped using them because the noise was killing my office partner and wife. Since I have to both work and sleep with her, the keyboard had to go to the basement. This keyboard provides essentially the same experience, but quite a bit quieter, lighter. I was afraid the MX Blue switches would be too loud (almost went with a MX Brown switched keyboard), but I'm glad I opted for this one.

This has a smaller footprint, but is just as accurate. I am a touch typist and do some development work, as well as a ton of documentation and other writing. This keyboard is perfect for those purposes. I'm not a keyboard based gamer, so I can't speak for the gaming chops of this keyboard. I have to say that it is nice to work with a keyboard that has all of the keys in the right place.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their typing speed and accuracy. I will never go back to a regular keyboard again. if I can only figure out how to mod this for use on my laptop... :D
