G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-12800CL11D-8GBSA

Pros: it was a good price for 8gig (4x2) of ram

Cons: windows will not boot. it will get as far as the windows log screen, then blue screen. on board system diagnostics (Dell) crashes out as soon as it attempts to test ram. Tried each stick independently, still failed at windows logo, put in old ram system booted right up.

Other Thoughts: Dell Latitude e6510. I used the newegg memory/system finder (which I verified again before writing this review) and it lists this product as compatible with my laptop, but it does not appear to be. I'm not 100% sure if it is the fault of Newegg (memory finder) for listing wrong, or if it is just bad ram. Either way, unhappy.

D-Link  DGS-1008G  Gigabit Desktop Switch - Retail

4 out of 5 eggs They Work 12/27/2013

This review is from: D-Link DGS-1008G Gigabit Desktop Switch - Retail

Pros: They work and you can have multiple of them on the same network without causing conflicts. I want to say they have really improved my lag/latency, but that is very hard to say beyond a shadow of the doubt - I might just be talking myself into it. :-) It comes with the screws and plugs so you can hang to a wall if you want too, plus it is actually kind of small for an 8 port switch, in my opinion.

Cons: The only major con I have is that stupid USB power connector on the side of the device. The plug itself I feel like I am going to break every time I touch/move the switch. I understand (I think) why it is on the side. The device itself is only as wide as 8 ports, so it is rather small for an 8 port switch and they needed to put the power plug somewhere. The curved design is odd to me as well, cannot really stack these on each other...well you can, but not without some fear that the one sitting on top will not fall off.

Other Thoughts: I bought 4 of theses, not from Newegg. I have one plugged directly into my wireless router which I am only running two computers on (main computers used for gamming and everything else main computers are used for), I then have another one plugged into my wireless router which then has the other two switches plugged into it running two Roku 3, two directv, home phone, printer, NAS, PS3, etcetera. one of the switches is tied back into the network via TP-Link TL-PA4010kit powerline adapter which appears to be a great way to connect your network if you do not feel like crawling around in your attic or crawlspace to run wires from one side of the house to the other (review already wrote for those) and you are NOT looking for gigabyte connectivity for the devices on the other end. Before setting all this up I performed numerous bandwidth tests on sites that also so lag/latency. average tests in the beginning for large and small packets combined were around 35-40ms. after setup and only having these devices plug/routed through my wireless router tests on the same site reflected an average of 10-15ms.
