Team C12G 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model TC12G32GB01
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs It's tiny & it works! 01/17/2014

This review is from: Team C12G 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model TC12G32GB01

Pros: - Small
- Inexpensive, when on sale (will have to see how long it lasts...)

Cons: - Very tight in USB socket, glad I'm using as stationary ReadyBoost as I could see how others have easily damaged it when removing from their USB ports.
- Didn't buy 2 when it was on sale.
- Shipping wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: Using as ReadyBoost memory on an old HTPC with only 4GB of RAM , boosted my RAM and Integrated Graphics performance by 0.9 in Windows Index in each category.

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Lifetime warranty, which I unfortunately needed to use...

Cons: - 1 out of 2 module set went bad
- Bought Spring 2012 - started giving me BSOD's first occasionally around the year mark (which was very infrequent), then frequently at the 1 3/4 year mark.
- I'm now w/o a PC for 3 weeks (even though 1 module was still good) to give G.Skill time to receive, process RMA and ship back replacement memory.

Other Thoughts: G.Skill should offer an advance replacement program like on hard drives! I would have gladly forked over a charge card to keep my PC operational.
I haven't had computer memory (laptop or desktop) give up the ghost on me over 12 years in my 35 years of building various systems...

ECS MS200 Intel Socket LGA1156 Intel H55 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics from CPU Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Small, low price after rebate

Cons: 1st failure (10 1/2 months old): Mainboard BIOS must have corrupted, would not recognize Intel HD graphics built into CPU. Went back to ECS, they claim they did nothing to it, but when it was returned back to me the CPU smart fan system operated very differently than before it was sent.

2nd Failure (16 months old): Unit uses a laptop power brick as a supply, power supply on Motherboard is damaged as the unit won't power up and the LED on the laptop brick is half brightness when plugged into the PC. Unplug PC & power down brick to reset and power brick LED goes full brightness and voltage (as normal). They must use really cheap capacitors and a bad power section design as the caps could be heard periodically ticking/clicking when the PC did work - at least until it finally gave up the ghost.

So I'm not only out the cost of the ECS PC, but I'm also out the cost of the CPU & Memory I specifically bought for use in their PC!

Other Thoughts: Should have saved my money & bought a better brand! Don't make my mistake, RUN, don't walk away from ECS products!!!
