G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, affordable, reliable and (now) stable (see other thoughts). A snazzy casing that looks good in my build.

Cons: Didn't come with maid service.

Other Thoughts: I bought this pair to boost the memory in my now-three-year-old home build with an i7 chip and the (then new) P55-UD3 Gigabyte MB. I was originally having problems running four sticks of memory in this machine, so I RMA'ed a pair and never bought another set due to time. Now, this past week, I was switching over to a Crucial MX100 512GB SSD drive and I needed a 2.5" tray for my HD cage, I ordered through Newegg and decided to give the memory another try. This time, though, I emailed GSkill tech support while the memory was en route. I explained my situation of BSODs and lock-ups when installing four sticks and they recommended the manually setting the RAM to DDR3-1333, timing settings of 8-8-8-24, and 1.50v.

Memory came, installed, changed the settings as recommended and it's been smooth sailing ever since. I instantly noticed a difference running business and entertainment apps in Windows 7. Plus, it used to take my PC 4-5 minutes to boot all the way in, now it had dropped to about 2 minutes. As a side note, I thought that was fast until I put in the Crucial SSD - now I boot to my desktop in about 45 seconds.

All in all, I'm extremely happy with GSkill, it has been in every one of my home builds and now, tech support can be added to that list of 'likes'. They answered my email within 4 hours of receipt.

Would recommend to others without hesitation.

ZyXEL Powerline AV 500 Mbps Starter Kit 2 Units PLA4215KIT

5 out of 5 eggs Did Exactly What I Wanted 07/30/2013

This review is from: ZyXEL Powerline AV 500 Mbps Starter Kit 2 Units PLA4215KIT

Pros: Quick and easy setup, included software was not necessary. It just plain ole works! Period

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: For me, the supplied software utility wasn't really necessary. With it, you can ID boxes on the network that are Powerline along with their MAC addresses, you can also get transmit rates and change the name of the powerline network that is generated when two of these things are plugged in. You can also password encrypt the data buzzing around your electrical circuit, but, for me, there's really no need for that. Also, the Firmware tab in the software simply leads to their website.

Kit was purchased to supply my bedroom with "wired" connectivity for my Roku which choked on the mediocre wireless signal in the house. Roku sleeps, wakes up, and nary a missed step. Connection is instant and full throttled - all movies and streaming content play without a hiccup. Utility shows 22Mbps out and 35Mbps in, but I haven't really tested it because...well, because it's working for me.

Would definitely (and already have) recommend to others.

Logitech Tablet Keyboard 920-003390 Black Bluetooth Wireless Standard Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great design, android specific keys, carrying case that turns into a stand, sleek, not cheaply made. The keys felt legit under my fingers - good response, too.

Cons: Purchased this as a Christmas gift for my wife and I sync'ed it to her tablet on Christmas day, but she did not use it until last week. That's when we discovered there were three dead keys on the keyboard - 'S', 'N', and 'M'. Since the unit was out of warranty through Newegg, I had to go directly to Logitech.

Submitted a request via their ticketing system on 1/26/13 with the promise of 48-hour turnaround, but I just heard back from them on 2/3/13 (grabbing my calculator). Hmm, not the most speedy response, but okay, at least they replied. I'll update my review after the issue is resolved.

Other Thoughts: I've never had a problem with Logitech equipment before. I have a Squeezebox and countless wired and wireless keyboards and mice (mouses, mices). I'm going to assume this was a fluke.
