Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Impressive specs, user replaceable battery, two-sims.

Cons: Cannot detect Wi-Fi 5GHz. Tons of bloatware that is challenging to remove. Low speakerphone volume.

Other Thoughts: Preparing to return it to Newegg. Unfortunately I cannot get a refund, replacement only. I have used many Asus motherboards for several years and have been very satisfied. I am using for almost a year now their RT-AC68U modem and have been semi-satisfied as I had to send it in for repairs recently but they give you two year warranty the best in the industry. I am not sure about this phone until I receive a replacement and have allowed for enough some burn-in time.

WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good brand name we have come around to trust.

Cons: Purchased two, one failed in less than 30 days and made the mistake to return it to WD and receive a re-certified and DOA drive. Now I am on the second RMA.

Other Thoughts: My mistake to call WD instead of returning to New Egg for a new, factory fresh drive. I will see what WD does this time, I hope they send me a new drive instead of a recertified one. This will be the deciding factor whether I purchase their products again in the future. WD Black quality has deteriorated, search the internet for failure rates and you will find a better manufacturer.

Sans Digital 8-Bay eSATA RAID 0/1/10/5/JBOD Tower Storage Enclosure w/ 6G PCIe Card TR8M+B (Black)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: A pretty box with hot swappable drives and good customer service. I had no problem getting technical support on the phone.

Cons: It gets hot, really hot. I purchased this knowing that 8 hot hard drives in a small box like this with a single cooling fan would present problems.

Other Thoughts: I thought I would not use the box very frequently or for long hours but I was wrong and this is the reason I took off only two eggs. It turns out that when drives restore redundancy or rebuild raid groups it takes several hours to complete, in my case 60-90 hours. I run three RAID1 groups with 2-TB drives and one RAID-1 with 3-TB drives, all WD Red. I use CrystalDiskInfo to monitor the temperature. Unfortunately I live in Houston and the drives get hot with an average temperature inside the house between 76-78 Deg. F in the summer . There is no way to add fans to the box but when I removed the left side panel and placed a fan to blow air directly to the drive cage it still got hot. I shut it down when CystalDisk indicated 50 and 53 deg. C. This is a pretty box but I can only use it in the winter time. Now you know why I gave it the title "hot and pretty".
