Face Masks

LANSWE Disposable Face Mask - 50 pcs per Box
LANSWE Disposable Face Mask - 50 pcs per Box

Pros: Just as described, PM2.5 particulate filter, 3 ply nonwoven. Came in record time. And at half the price of the previous box I had to order from the big A.

Cons: None, except wearing a mask feels funny.

Overall Review: For this level of protection, this is what you want.

Most Critical Review

MOBO fail and then ASUS fail.

ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Standard install in a small case. Ran well for over 18 months paired with SSD and 8 g RAM. Bought on Asus reputation for quality and stability. 3 year warranty.

Cons: Suddenly would intermittently not POST or load BIOS. Then would work again. Finally only black screen. Went through troubleshooting with support. Cleared CMOS. Flashed sequentially to current BIOS. No effect. Bad motherboard. Reversed my install, removed cables, CPU etc. and carefully prepared motherboard. Got an RMA well within warranty period. Sent Priority Mail with tracking and fully padded with bubblewrap inside Asus mobo envelope. The board looked unused in original condition. Mature user. No kids in household. Received from Asus an invoice for a new motherboard at full price as a response. Explanation: that the edge was damaged and therefore the board not reparable on the unit I sent them! This was my third build with ASUS mobo's, I am writing this on such a computer now. There was absolutely no physical damage! Since this is how Asus avoids warranty costs for quality problems, that was obviously the last ASUS product I will buy.

Overall Review: Can no longer recommend ASUS products. Tricks like this to avoid covering their warranties render them useless, and undermine the basis for their reputation.

USB Hub

TP-LINK UH400 USB 3.0 4-Port Portable Hub
TP-LINK UH400 USB 3.0 4-Port Portable Hub

Pros: Immediate plug and play functionality.What more do you want from a hub?

Overall Review: Recommend for 3.0 ports, hold out for usb-c 3.1 if that's the expansion you need.

DOA

Silicon Power Slim S60 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP512GBSS3S60S25AE
Silicon Power Slim S60 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP512GBSS3S60S25AE

Pros: So far, only that it got here quickly, normal Newegg competence!

Cons: Have attached this drive to various systems, Windows will not assign a drive letter, no way to format it, only recognizes it as a storage device without labels, capacity, etc. No driver updates to apply, etc.

Overall Review: I have to wonder if it's not just an empty case, it weighs less than 2/3's of the 7mm SSD it was to replace! Now I have to find out how fit the replacement procedure is going to be.......

PNY Bust

PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE)
PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE)

Pros: Windows was able to install drivers for the drive and recognize as PNY. At first.

Cons: The first copy attempt resulted in corrupted files. After deletion, Windows couldn't recognize the drive. Demanded to be formatted. Quick format, but "Windows cannot format this drive." Eject and reinsert. Windows doesn't recognize. Tried another computer. Quick formatted successfully but cannot drop files onto the drive. Yet another PC, drive shows up in Explorer but wants to have a disk inserted into the drive. Again and again. Finally tried a MacBook. No recognition whatever. Just bad product!

Overall Review: The drive took unusually long to arrive and thus came while I was out of town on business. As a result it was beyond the 30 day window to return to Newegg. BTW, am writing this on a PC with a PNY SSD. Shakes my confidence a bit with this flash drive!

Product DOA, Customer Service superior

The thermometer was non-functional upon arrival. Contacted customer service through Newegg, was immediately issued an RMA and a Fedex shipping label for the return, notified when they had received it, and issued a refund. For a faulty item, it couldn't have gone better.

Distiller

Package came in good time, the unit was packed without the usual excess packing material and nested efficiently together, all components were included. The assembly is quite straightforward, you just have to follow the diagrams, like installing a faucet. The instruction booklet has some real basic info about rice and corn fermentation stories, some translated and some just bad grammer, so you will need more knowledge for the real process involved. Now begins the adventurous experiment.
