Rosewill RCR-300 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Installed easily, abundant USB 3.0 ports and a wide array of memory chip ports, and looks fine in a black case.

Cons: The Blue USB 3.0 internal cable connector to the system board does not snugly fit into the system board's input port. Had to secure the cable to the chassis to make sure there is no wiggle. Cable itself is much longer than needed for my case.
While the USB ports work fine for charging when the system is on, they do not work when my machine is off. I don't know why. It would be better if I could charge things while the machine is off, but my system board's ports are there to do the charging when my machine is off.

Other Thoughts: I don't use the fan control, but overall this is a fine product for the on sale price, which is why I got it. I would recommend it to other people who want extra USB ports and want to work with a variety of memory storage chips.

Linksys EA6500 V2 AC1750 Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit, Smart Wi-Fi App Enabled, Open Source supported
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks attractive, Size is acceptable, Internal Webpage for controlling the router looks all right, but see the negative/Cons. Works for the most part. Used Linksys Routers for over 15 years without issues; BUT now the world of Linksys is not the same people.

Cons: With all of the Routers out there, I recommend you skip buying this one and any Linksys product if you need to rely on support for what you pay for. Here is why.
This router requires browsers other than IE 11 to access its internal webpage for setup. If you use IE 11, you get a pretty screen that says this: Upgrade your router to IE or another. Here you are with the latest IE 11 and the router says use something else
Discussed this quietly with Linksys Support, but ordinary Techs say use Chrome or something other than IE11.
Website has no email address for support so I wrote to corporate HDQ. HDQ had worker bees contact me and got all of the information about the issue. I was promised a Firmware was in the works. Here it is four months later, no updated firmware. Need I say more?

Other Thoughts: Linksys must have an issue with Microsoft. It steers users to browsers other than IE11. So if you need firmware correction, you cannot depend on timely updates, in my case no update at all!

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8Q-16GBZH

4 out of 5 eggs G.Skill Fast and Cool, but RMA sometimes necessary 01/29/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8Q-16GBZH

Pros: Looks well (doesn't really matter to many customers), good fit, fine compatibility, flexible and precision adjustment timings, good and standard packaging, and fine reputation of the company.

Cons: While it is fairly easy to interact with the company, the RMA system is questionable at this time. Must submit a certain form and await response, which could take a few days. No direct exchange, i.e. provide credit card number and have replacement shipped out immediately. So, when you send out your four sticks because one went bad; you're left without RAM unless you have some extra or buy more. One stick of four started faulting after 14 months of non-overclock, standard timings settings usage. First GSkill RAM Failure in over 8 years.

Other Thoughts: A big and successful company like GSkill could easily upgrade its RMA system by allowing customers to provide credit card number to guarantee payment if assessment of bad memory is wrong. I am in midst of RMA that looks to take a couple of weeks being GSkill is on the West Coast and I on the East. If things go faster, I'll gladly update this assessment. Would be nice if customer service was a bit more energetic and kind when interacting with customers....Dude (don't like that term personally).
