Most Favorable Review

Quiet, good quality, needs instructions

Dynatron K17 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler for Intel LGA Socket 1151 / 1150 / 1155 / 1156
Dynatron K17 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler for Intel LGA Socket 1151 / 1150 / 1155 / 1156

Pros: Well built, relatively light-weight compared to an all-copper unit. Cools well and is quiet. I installed it on an Intel i7 CPU, which had an excessively noisy stock cooler. It's been problem free during the first month of use. The bottom brackets have adhesive, so they stick to the motherboard for easier installation.

Cons: No instructions, no air-flow indicator on the fan or housing, and the mount is perfectly square, so there are 4 possible orientations of the unit, which is error-prone. Must remove the fan housing to access 2 of the screws, but that's easy, since the housing just snaps on and off. I would have given 5-stars, if good instructions were included.

Overall Review: Installation: Since the fan blows INTO the heatsink and my CPU is at the top of the motherboard of my tower case, I mounted it so the fan is at the bottom (the side nearest the video card slots), blowing upwards. As another review indicated, the C-shaped brackets should be mounted on the bottom of the motherboard, with the posts in the CPU mounting holes, oriented with the centers of the brackets facing each other, like: ') (' and not: '( )'. Peel off the paper and stick them into place, mount the motherboard, then the heat sink (minus fan) using the 4 screws, plug in fan power wires, and then snap the fan into place. I did NOT use the stock thermal paste which was pre-applied to the unit, since it was a complete unknown. I cleaned it off w/ Arcticlean and used Arctic Silver 5 instead.

Great NVMe SSD

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS200T3X0C
Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS200T3X0C

Pros: I have bought 3 WD NVMe sticks over the last few years; the most-recent was a 2TB stick which I've been using for a couple of weeks. All have been reliable and are working great.

Cons: no cons

Overall Review: I would definitely buy another. I do recommend it.

Simple to install

GLOTRENDS M.2 Heatsink Kits fit for PS5/PC, 0.12inch(3mm) Thick M.2 Cooling Fin for 2280 M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD

Pros: I installed this on a WD Black NVMe SSD. I've been using it for about a week and so far, it's been working great. It was way cheaper than buying the SSD with integrated heatsink. (I saved ~$80).

Cons: No cons

Overall Review: Yes, I would buy it again and recommend it to others.

Fast NVMe SSD

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G3X0C
Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G3X0C

Pros: Works well. I've been using a 1TB unit in my desktop for over a year and bought this 500GB unit for my laptop a few weeks ago. It's worth a few more bucks to get a faster SSD that typical units.

Cons: It would be nice if an attachment screw was provided. I really had to hunt to find an appropriate screw to install it in my laptop.

Overall Review: Great product. I'll likely buy another 1 or 2TB unit for my desktop in the future.

Pros: I've been using this network cable for over a week, without any problems.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I'd buy this brand of cable again.

Does what it's supposed to do

IOGEAR GUB212 2-Port USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch
IOGEAR GUB212 2-Port USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch

Pros: This keyboard/mouse switch box does exactly what it's supposed to do, reliably and without disrupting my keyboard. My old switch box (by StarTech) developed an issue where I'd have to unplug and replug my keyboard into the socket to reset it after switching computers. This switch does not have that problem. The button switches are sturdy. The ports are all on the back, instead of having some on the front (which is a better arrangement for my cluttered desk). I've been using it for over a week and it's been problem-free.

Cons: It would be nice if there were LEDs to let you know which computer is selected (like my old StarTech unit), but it's not a big deal, since 1 of the 2 buttons is clearly depressed. My office is kind of dark and I can easily tell which computer is selected by feeling the buttons.

Overall Review: I recommend this unit and would buy it again.

My experience was good

The power supply tester was exactly as described and appears to have a good build quality. No complaints.

Very slow shipping

It's been a month since I placed my order and it still has not arrived. When I placed the order, I saw others had mentioned this, so I am being patient. Luckily, my need is not urgent. If it had been, I'd be more upset. When I click on the shipping tracking number, there's still no estimate as to when it will arrive. I think my order is still literally on a slow boat from China. I know that the USPS tracking won't be available until the package is in the US, from prior experience. This is the slowest delivery of any order I've made from a Chinese company.

Good price, fast free delivery

I ordered a 32GB SanDisk microSDHC card with free shipping. It arrived 5 calendar days later (including the weekend). The memory card is in good working order. No complaints.
