Most Favorable Review

Great HD

Seagate Constellation.2 ST9500620NS 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Enterprise-class Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate Constellation.2 ST9500620NS 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Enterprise-class Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast, cool

Cons: none

Overall Review: I agree with EZ, newegg needs to make a specific "Server Class" or "Enterprise" hard drive section in their hard drive listings. This drive belongs there, not under laptop. It's NOT a laptop hard drive.

Most Critical Review

Used to be good, not any more

NUANCE PDF Converter Professional 8.0
NUANCE PDF Converter Professional 8.0

Pros: Fast and easy PDF file editing, creating and printing. Much more simple interface than Adobe Acrobat. Cheaper than Adobe Acrobat

Cons: Very buggy compared to older versions. Cloud service is useless, and you can't remove it even if you opt out. Much slower than version 7 More expensive than 7 and before

Overall Review: I've used PDF Converter since version 4. It was a bit buggy back then, but they improved. That is they used to improve. Version 8 has more problems than I've seen in a while. I'm also dismayed at the price increase. It's almost double the cost it used to be. At least it's still cheaper than Acrobat. But, due to the bugs and issues, I'm not sure it's worth it any more.

Did not work in 3630T

SNPY7N41C/8G AA101752 8GB for DELL Precision T3630 XL by Nemix Ram
SNPY7N41C/8G AA101752 8GB for DELL Precision T3630 XL by Nemix Ram

Pros: Due to these not working, we cannot report any "pros" for them.

Cons: These did not work in 2 Precision T3630 machines we tried them in.

Overall Review: I would not recommend these memory sets as they did not work for us.

Very very bad contrast, controls and ergo.

Westinghouse WH32UX9019 32" Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 4K Resolution 2xHDMI DisplayPort Flicker-Free Low Blue Light Filter Frameless Design Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor
Westinghouse WH32UX9019 32" Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 4K Resolution 2xHDMI DisplayPort Flicker-Free Low Blue Light Filter Frameless Design Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor

Pros: This monitor has good connectivity and is super inexpensive for this class of monitor. The controls are easy to use. And, it comes with an HDMI cable making the first setup even easier, unless you need a different cable, and being a computer monitor that's going in the cons...

Cons: The contrast on this 4K monitor is really bad. Washes out so much of the picture compared to other monitors that are only a little more expensive. The controls are on the back, so if you use more than one side by side, you won't be able to reach the controls on one of them. I use 3 side by side so I can't reach the controls on 2 of them. The USB plugs are hard to reach if you use it as a USB hub. And does not come with a DP cable, only HDMI, so not computer ready out of the box. And the mosnitor does not raise and lower, making ergo setup impossible.

Overall Review: If you want super cheap 4k, this might do. But I can't recommend it as a good computer workstation monitor.

Not good for RAID drives

Team Group GX2 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) T253X2256G0C101
Team Group GX2 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) T253X2256G0C101

Pros: These drives are priced very competitively. Seem to be very popular too. I've used dozens of them with no failures so far.

Cons: In a RAID 1 or 0 setup, these are extremely slow for SSD drives. Not sure why the slowness, but they benchmark at under 1/2 the speed of other SSD drivers in RAID. We normally use RAID 1 for data redundancy in case of drive failures in the field.

Overall Review: I would recommend for low cost single drives, but didn't work well for me in RAID setup.

A simple bag that gets the job done.

Targus Intellect TBT240US Carrying Case (Sleeve) for 15.6" to 16" Notebook - Black - TAA Compliant - Nylon Exterior Material - Carrying Strap - 11.8" Height x 16.3" Width x 2.8" Depth
Targus Intellect TBT240US Carrying Case (Sleeve) for 15.6" to 16" Notebook - Black - TAA Compliant - Nylon Exterior Material - Carrying Strap - 11.8" Height x 16.3" Width x 2.8" Depth

Pros: This is a nice 15.6" laptop bag with good materials, a solid strap, good padding inside (but not great).

Cons: This bag is on the small side. This might be good for some, but the 15.6" laptops I put in them just barely fit.

Overall Review: A good bag for those looking for something on the cheap side.

Slow and untrustworthy

I've purchased things from this reseller and their shipping is slow, plus they cancel orders with no warning. Not very happy with them.

Shipped wrong item twice

They shipped a wrong item to me twice. And I can't get them to answer e-mails in order to get the order fixed.
