Pyle Receiver MP3/USB/SD/AUX/AM/FM-Mechless unit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs So far, so GOOD! 09/02/2014

This review is from: Pyle Receiver MP3/USB/SD/AUX/AM/FM-Mechless unit

Pros: Blue-Tooth (both Phone AND Audio)
Compact (1/2 depth) size
AM/FM with 12/18 presets

Cons: BT mic is on the face of the unit, making BT phone essentially unusable in a top-less/door-less Jeep.

Other Thoughts: My kid just got licensed and wanted to start driving my Jeep. But the old Jensen head unit in my Jeep blew up (OK more like smoked and then died) about a year ago, and the kid wanted tunes.
I chose this Pyle unit because 1) MECHLESS (Jeeps get dirty, and tape/CD players go quickly) 2) it had a clock (kids request) 3) it had BT audio, so we can play music on our phones through this receiver; 4) it had BT phone (this was not clearly stated, and I had to call Pyle, who at first said it did NOT support this, but then said it did. Turns out it DOES, just not as good as I'd like.)
This unit had the features I was looking for, and with free Premier shipping and a Visa checkout discount, I got it for >$45.
I soldered the wiring harness to the factory harness, then taped the leads up, and plugged it in, and it worked fine. The 1/2 depth made mounting easier, and the unit seems to work great.
The test will be 6-12 months from now.
Here's hoping that it lasts even 1/2 as long as I expect it to!

Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Ordered on Tuesday AM (7/1). Received it at 11:30 AM on Wednesday (7/2). Fastest free shipping ever!

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Got this to replace an old (way too small) OCZ SSD I had running as a cache drive in my unRAID box. Will update the review after I install and "preclear" the drive and see how it works. But just wanted to give props to NewEgg for the fastest free shipping ever. (Which is a little strange, as the stuff I ordered last Friday 6/27, isn't scheduled for delivery until next Monday 7/7)

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price
Good flicks on Blu-Ray

Cons: No real extras for Blu-Ray versions of 1 and 2

Other Thoughts: Who'd have thought I'd get a deal on a Blu-Ray movie from NewEgg?
