This review is from: Tek Republic TUN-300 USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter
Pros: it just works. plug into a usb 3 slot, win7/8/10 auto detects, plug in ethernet cable & boom! gigabit speeds.
I carry this with me when i run into a situation where i have a PC that needs gigabit speeds to move data quickly over a 100FE connection. I use it with my ultrabook that doesn't have an ethernet port to connect to wired networks where wifi isn't available.
Cons: it's a bit flaky with macs. it doesn't like my macbook air & only works 3 out of 10 times or so that i've tried. tried it with a mac pro and it works like a champ.
Other Thoughts: keep in mind, it could just be an issue with my macbook air. if you are buying for use on PCs i think you'll be pleased. if buying for a mac, just get a thunderbolt adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: plenty of room for cable management, subtle case - not too flashy, better than average construction.
Cons: would like to see rubber grommets for cable management
Other Thoughts: I have used this case in 7-12 builds for customers. this case isn't flashy, it's a nice, simple case design with room for multiple drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This SSHD paired with a SSD is ideal for a gaming rig setup. Booting OS on SSD & then Games & mass storage on the SSHD, wow! Steam games load considerably faster, it's whisper quiet, just an overall great drive!
When this drive is used alone as the primary boot drive, Windows 10 boots almost as quickly as on a pure SSD. Applications frequently used: chrome, spotify, excel, photoshop, outlook, all load very quickly.
Cons: personally i wish the 8GB SSD portion of the drive was a bit larger, maybe 16-32GB, that could make it perfect!
Other Thoughts: if you are on the fence about trying a SSHD, let me say you won't be disappointed!READ FULL REVIEW
