This review is from: Coboc Light-black 6 ft. MFi Certified black Apple 8-pin Lightning Connector to USB Cable for Apple iPhone5, iPad4, iPad Mini, iPod Touch 5th Gen, iPod Nano 7th Gen - Charge and Sync Cable
Pros: Functions just like the OEM cable.
Cons: The outer insulation separated from the strain relief near the lightning connector after a few weeks of moderate use. The wires inside are exposed now, so I don't expect it to last much longer.
Other Thoughts: I'm about as easy on my equipment as anybody, so it's pretty rare that things fall apart on me. This wasn't even my primary cable - I use it less than 50% of the time.
This looks like a poor design. The strain relief was made with almost no overlap over the outer insulation, so this separation was inevitable.
Pros: Works fine with Linux Mint, kernel 3.5.0-17-generic
Faster than USB 2.0
Price was right
Other Thoughts: lshw reports this as a Renesas Technology USB controller.
Works with Rosewill RDCR-11003 card reader.
Mobo is MSI 760GM-P34 (FX).
This review is from: Microsoft Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle 250GB S Gaming System with K - Black Gloss
Pros: Nice package of games for the kiddos. Plugged it in and everything works great.
Cons: Microsoft requires a TON of personal info just to set up a Live Silver account. I had to do it to redeem a Microsoft points card. That was the deciding factor for me to not upgrade to Gold. No good reason why MS needs my dob, address, etc. just to buy and download a game.
Other Thoughts: Packaging from Newegg was light: just a layer of peanuts between the outside box and the product box. One corner was smashed in on both boxes when it arrived. Fortunately the Xbox itself is pretty well padded inside so it works fine.READ FULL REVIEW
