HighPoint RocketRAID 4522 SAS/SATA 6Gb/s Low Profile Ready SATA / SAS RAID Controller Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: NONE

Cons: Says "Up to 128 SATA / SAS devices via SAS Expander"

Well, I have a 60-bay SAS Expander, and no matter what I do, this piece of junk only sees 15-Drives.

Tried to contact High-Point, but support is non-existant.

Other Thoughts: I have tested my SAS Expander enclosure using a cheap non-RAID controller card, and that sees and works with all 60 Drives.

Everytime I contact HighPoint, they close the ticket without attempting to answer any questions, or offering any solutions.

It is shocking how terrible HighPoint support is.

I'm just gonna keep opening a new trouble ticket every day, till they at least make an effort to support their product.

So far they have closed 4 tickets without explaination of anykind.

Definitive Technology BP-8040ST Bipolar SuperTower Floorstanding Loudspeaker - Each (Gloss Black)
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Mostly Great (Screws are garbage) 01/14/2015

This review is from: Definitive Technology BP-8040ST Bipolar SuperTower Floorstanding Loudspeaker - Each (Gloss Black)

Pros: Compact, amazing sound, great bass.

Cons: Kinda hard to explain, but bass sounds great, but doesnt "feel" great.
Kindof a hollow bass. Most people probably wouldn't notice though.

Included screws for mounting the feet are garbage.
Trust me.

Other Thoughts: My original plan was to get rid of my 12 inch polk sub after getting these.
Though I think I am going to keep it now, just to keep the earth shaking bass.

Most people probably will not need a sub with these, but since I already have one, and selling it will get me half what I paid...

And now the screws...

On the first speaker, I broke the heads off of 4 out of the 8 feet screws.
(Using a hand screwdriver)

I managed to get 3 of them out with needle nose vice grips, but the fourth one broke off flush with the speaker housing.

Had some comparible sized decking screws.

Removed the screws that didn't break, and used only 8 decking screws instead.
(Hand to angle the one in, cause I couldn't remove the cheap broken screw)

Opened the second speaker, imediately threw the screws in the trash, and used 8 more decking screws.

Seriously, don't try to use those screws.
You can't imagine how much work it will be to remove all the broken ones.

And these towers will rock and rattle without all the screws.

New USB 2.0 A Male To A Female Adapter Converter Changer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great Customer Service 11/21/2014

This review is from: New USB 2.0 A Male To A Female Adapter Converter Changer

Pros: Works perfect.
Bought 2.
1 was defective, but seller shipped a replacement no questions asked.

Cons: 1 was defective.
Was promptly replaced.

Other Thoughts: We have some very expensive specialized software which requires a usb hardware key.

We pass the key around quite a bit, so I bought these and taped them to the hardware key. That way the connections on the $4 usb extender get all jacked up from the abuse, instead of the $1200 key.
