StarTech FAN4SPLIT12 12
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The adapter is well built. I used it for parts for another project.

Cons: The price seems a little high for a simple splitter - but still is obviously not high enough to break a budget.

Rosewill RCW-108 - 6-Foot USB 2.0 A Male to Mini B (5-Pin) Male, Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As a basic cable or for charging it seems to work nicely.

Cons: I originally purchased this as part of a project. This connected to a temperature probe. The computer controlled devices via electromagnetic relays based on the readings - most of the devices have a inductive load. When using this cable, it would drop the data connection almost every time a relay was actuated. (You could see the OS claim the USB device was disconnected, then it would quickly reconnect). I could also replicate the issue by simply (un)plugging power to the nearby motors. Long story short, I was using the wrong cable for the job. I replaced it with a USB cable that had Ferrite beads on it - no more interference issues.

Other Thoughts: I still rate the cable highly. For a basic, cheap cable - it gets the job done. For my more sensitive application, I shouldn't have settled. This is more my fault than the cable's.

4 out of 5 eggs Good 04/01/2014

This review is from: GELID Solutions Slient 7 FN-SX07-22 70mm Case Fan

Pros: Pretty silent. Good airflow. Looks cool.

Cons: I ordered two. I always use my finger to give fans a free spin to test them before plugging in. The first one kept getting caught. I thought I had fixed it, but when I plugged it in, it rattled pretty badly. I found that the wires had a bit of a bend where they were coming out of the hub, and they were interfering with something in there. I used a tool to pull the wire taut and it was fine afterward.

Other Thoughts: The second fan had no issues at all. I'm not sure if this is indicative of quality control - I only have the two fans, small sample. I was pleased that it was an easy fix.
