Pros:

Adapter works. There are enough ends that one of them probably fits (outwitting the extortionists who design these things for the OEM laptop manufacturers). Rosewill service is great. Although the adapter is not engineered for long life, they will cheerfully replace an adapter that dies at 11 months and 15 days into the 12 month warranty. Cheap as Shell Shocker or regular price.

Cons:

Really poorly designed. Adapter end is held onto cord just by friction... so it tends to separate from the cord, resulting in surprise power off conditions. The adapter end has a right way and a wrong way to install on the cord end... but it will happily assembly either way and the difference is so slight that you may not notice it. I got an RMA to replace an adapter that was simply mistakenly assembled (by me). The adapter end fits loosely into the laptop socket so that one is always worried that it may pull loose. The cord coming out of the power box is not protected by any kind of flex coupling so it quickly suffers from mechanical wear. Mine failed at about 11 months -- Good News!!: Rosewill service was uncomplaining, fast and friendly.

Other Thoughts:

Would be five stars if only the mechanical bits of this electrical component were competently engineered.
