Addonics M2 PCIe SSD - PCIe 3.0 4-Lane Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs A popular adapter design 08/02/2016

This review is from: Addonics M2 PCIe SSD - PCIe 3.0 4-Lane Adapter

Pros: It works..

Cons: I noticed that there are many identical such PCIe Adapter boards like this one sold by many vendors. This one is not the cheapest from Addonics.

Other Thoughts: Since it took 9 days to arrive from a Maryland Store to Oklahoma. Next time I will pay the extra and get it direct from Newegg for only a few bucks more. I was in no hurry this time because I am waiting for the Micron SSD 2100.

Pros: Doors and hinges on this usit are metal. The unit is aluminum, has a solid feel. Everything works fine and dandy with Samsung SATA3 SSDs.

Cons: I use a Samsung SSD 850 installed for the OS. With another SSD, INTEL 520 data drive (Sata3), in the other slot, it would not read the Intel SSD for some reason. At the same time the LED light viewed weak. The exact same data on a Samsung 840 SSD read perfectly in the same slot. LEDs were normal. Why would a Samsung work and not an Intel SSD.? I tried several INTEL SSDs, they wouldn't work.

Other Thoughts: I changed cables thinking maybe it was my cables, to correct the problem. It didn't work. Somebody needs to check the pin-outs and SSD details to find out the difference. Maybe the vendor can explain. My assumption is that it may have something to do with current draw.? Not sure.
Since my system works fine with Samsung SSDs in the iStar dock is ok for my use, so I took off only one star. People with only Intel SSDs may give it one star or return the unit as defective.!

Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BF160B

Pros: It works with the usual crucial reliability.

Cons: The memory I received had twice as many DRAM chips as shown in the picture. That is, it was the same number, CT2KIT25664BF160B, but had 8 chips on a side instead of 4. I did not like this deception so I took off a star.! (too many solder joints for the size)

Other Thoughts: I ordered this because of low price and a previous review that the 1600 worked fine at 1333. The Asrock Mini ITX motherboard Q1900-ITX works ONLY with 1333 according to their specs, but this 1600 memory also works fine and was considerably cheaper than the 1333. This 1600 memory will also work fine with the Asrock Mini-ITX QC5000-ITX/PH
