BELKIN F9P609-03 6 Outlets Power Strip 3 Feet Cord Length
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs TechGuy 11/29/2011

This review is from: BELKIN F9P609-03 6 Outlets Power Strip 3 Feet Cord Length

Pros: None

Cons: I needed several Power Strips with Surge Peotection. I called Newegg and the Rep said that she thought that they did have Surge Protection, but wasn't positive. She told me to call Belkin and verify it. After 20 - 30 minutes of "investigation" the first Belkin Rep said that he was fairly certain that they had Surge Protection. I told him that I needed to be sure. He gave me a different extension to call and, after about 15 minutes of "investigation" that Rep said that their tech specialist told her that they did have Surge Ptotection, so I ordered 5 of them.
When I opened the box, they were all clearly labeled:

Other Thoughts: When I order computer products from all of the other vendors that I buy from, I am able to get reliable info about their products by calling them. This doesn't ever seem to happen with Newegg!
No one there ever seems to have a clue and this apparently applies to Belkin, as well!

Rosewill RC-212 VIA PCI SATA 1.5G / IDE ATA 133 Controller Card / Supports Raid 0, 1, 0+1, JBOD, non-RAID mode
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It works well with some SATA Drives

Cons: It doesn't even recognize some SATA drives that work well with the Rosewill RC-215.
( I have used 6 or 8 RC-215's in the past couple years and find them quite reliable.)

Other Thoughts: If you don't need the external SATA ports, you will have better compatibility with the RC-215

SAMSUNG Spinpoint M7E HM641JI 640GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: none

Cons: I removed my existing drive and connected the new drive to my Motherboard SATA controller and used Administrative Tools, Disk Management to Format it. When the Format was almost complete I received a message that the Format was unsuccessful.
I rebooted and tried again with the exact same result.
I rebooted again and Windows froze and wouldn’t boot until I disconnected the new drive.

Other Thoughts: When I re-connected my Good original drive to the SATA cable, the PC again froze and wouldn’t boot until I removed the (Good) SATA Drive. This drive is okay on other SATA controllers.
When the new Samsung drive went bad it wrecked my Motherboard SATA controller so that I can no longer use it.
Newegg rep doesn't read very well!
