Pros: Worked great when working. Did not try disks over 2TB.
Cons: Started disconnecting good disks after 6 months of lots of use. Thought it would go longer than 6 months (discs work on other SATA->USB converters).
Other Thoughts: I don't ever expect these things to last long seeming as every one I have had over the years has just worn out (poor capacitor problems??).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
Pros: - Does everything I need including walking my wife
- Great non-5Ghz WiFi range
- Good options including AP
Cons: - Doesn't pick up after my wife
- Can only order 1 at a time in a day
- Using AP mode does not allow the use of WPA2
Other Thoughts: Seriously, it doesn't do anything for my wife, nor does my wife know what these are. We have used these routers for several locations with our IT Consultation business and have had no problems at all. We have about 5 active Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 routers throughout the San Diego area that have replaced a range of random router models/manufacturers with another 11 on the way for a large client, which brings me to one point: Newegg, you just lost out on selling us 11 of these units because of your limit of "1 per customer." Very satisfied with everything you do, but we do not want to use an EID for Newegg Business, and ended up ordering on my personal A.Prime account for the same price, 11 units.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SIIG 2-Port RS232 Serial PCIe with 16950 UART Model JJ-E02111-S1
Pros: - Clean install
- Been working for several months straight
- No connection issues
- Low profile
Cons: - Pricier than other rs-232 cards
Other Thoughts: I can't take any eggs off for being expensive because this card seems to beat all other cards and in a business environment, cutting corners on quality and connection hurts us in the end. Installed in a customer's new system that needs an RS-232 bar code scanner connection to work (dumb program accepts USB scanner connections in every one of its applications EXCEPT ONE!).
Dealing with robotics applications in the biotech industry and fighting with manufacturers and developers to STOP USING RS-232 connections has led to some extensive use of USB->RS-232 and add-in cards. This OXPCIe952 chipset seems to work great and I will be purchasing more as we replace outdated computers that still require RS-232.
As an IT professional, my actual tech level in RS-232 is average at best (at least I know what a null and straight serial cable are!). Commands and development using this protocol are beyond me.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
