Patriot Signature Series 16GB Class 4 Micro SDHC Flash Card Wtih SD Adapter Model PSF16GMCSDHC43P
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Adapter works fine.

Cons: After a few months files became corrupted. Took a lot of power.

Other Thoughts: Got this to add capacity to a Clip+ music player. About the 6th or 7th month, a few music files became corrupted. As time went by more and more files became corrupted, until I stopped using this memory card.

With this card installed, the music player could only run about 6 hours on a full charge. Without this card, the music player would run at least 15 hours on a full charge. With a replacement card from a different manufacturer, the music player again runs close to 15 hours on a full charge.

Palm  Black 3G Unlocked GSM Smart Phone with Wi-Fi / GPS / Full QWERTY Keyboard (Pixi Plus)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Wi-Fi, 8GB memory built in, common microUSB. Probably OK if you need a cheap replacement for a broken smart phone, and are not eligible for a new one.

Cons: I took this to two AT&T company stores, 230 miles apart, and both told me that as soon as they activated it, AT&T will put me on a data plan.

Other Thoughts: Gave it a "1 Egg" due to it being unsuitable. I have not even put the battery in this Palm Pixi Plus yet, because I am not on an AT&T data plan, and do not want their data plan....I was hoping to just use the WiFi for the rare occasions I wanted internet access, not be put on a full-time data plan.
I must have missed--or forgot about--the 15-day RMA limit policy on unlocked cell phones.
If I was going to pay for a data plan, would get a more up-to-date phone.

CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Has been reliable. One of the lowest voltage modules available--runs cool. Same part number still available over a year later, and I think it had been available for almost a year when I bought mine.

Cons: No way could I get four sticks (8GB) of this to work on Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard--would not even POST. Rebate was slow. Faster timings are available.

Other Thoughts: DDR2 is getting more expensive and DDR3 has come down to reach price parity now. If you have a good motherboard and CPU, but only have 1GB or so, this may be a worthwhile upgrade--but recall that there were a lot of problems getting more than 4GB to work on systems of yesteryear.
