StarTech.com USB 3.0 eSATA Dual 3.5 SATA III Hard Drive RAID Enclosure with UASP and Fan (S3520WU33ER)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Using this as a add on drive for XBox One S and it is working fine in that capacity so far. Setting the RAID mode it a little confusing but explained in the manual well enough. Getting built in RAID at this price is pretty nice.

Cons: The fan is not obnoxiously loud, but is still considerably louder than the fan on the XBox One S; to the extent that I usually turn the unit off when I am not using the XBox.

The LEDs are way too bright. This seems to be endemic with the blue LEDs nowadays. I ended up having to put two layers of masking tape over the LEDs to dim them to a reasonable level. Even through two layers of masking tape they are still pretty bright.

Seating the drives is a bit tricky. They do not seat in a very positive way and you are not sure if they are in all the way. If you don't align them perfectly there is a chance you can break the SATA connector while trying to insert the drive. A less wobbly rail system would have been preferred.

Other Thoughts: Pass through USB for daisy chaining would have been nice

Logitech Z323 2.1 Speaker System

4 out of 5 eggs Very short cables 01/27/2014

This review is from: Logitech Z323 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: Sounds fine, looks fine, overall working great so far.

Cons: The cables are very short. I had to buy an extension cord for the power, a DB9 extension cable and a 3.5mm extension cable.

I positioned the subwoofer right under the hole in the upper part of the back of my desk (made to feed cables to under the desk). The power cable will not even reach from ground where the sub was to the hole in upper part of desk and back down to the power strip just below the hole.

The subwoofer connects to the right speaker using a DB9 cable; it would not reach up to the hole and over about 3 feet. The left speaker connects with an RCA plug cable, which is the only one that did reach thanks to the left speaker being almost right over the hole. The right speaker connects to the computer with a 3.5mm stereo plug which was a tad too short to reach across half of the desk.

If you want to position the subwoofer on the ground under your desk you will almost definitely need at least a DB9 extension cable; make sure you DO NOT get a "null modem cable" as this crosses over the wires.

Other Thoughts: The speakers are unprotected and are on both the front and the back. This makes it difficult to move them without accidentally grabbing by one of the speaker holes. Be careful moving them around.

If you position the speakers on their side to be under your monitors then the headphone jack will be facing down.

NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300-NAS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works OK, lights up the room 09/03/2013

This review is from: NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300-NAS

Pros: Everything seems to work with it so far. No technical complaints yet.

Cons: All my complaints are ergonomic.

1. Giant netgear logo on the front that is lit up by very bright white LEDs; and there is NO way to turn these LEDs off! This is inexcusable

2. It is very large and there are no orientation or mounting options. It has to stand up the way you see it in the picture, period.

3. Puts off a good amount of heat.

4. The admin interface is awkward and confusing. It also blocks all internet access until you initially configure it, but the instructions for initial config did not work on my browser. Had to guess the numeric IP
