This review is from: CineRAID CR-H252B Dual 3.5 Bay Quiet USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure (No Drives)
Cons: Tech support is TERRIBLE.
Included cable a little short (3') for desktop use with a tower case on the floor
No adjustment for sleep mode on the drives.
Other Thoughts: Finally got this thing stable by purchasing this USB 3.0 controller card, even though I had a Renesas USB3.0 chipset on my MoBo. Works flawlessly now. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=15-256-004
Their technical "support" is outsourced to someone with mediocre English and marginal knowledge of the product. I only bring up his English because it was extremely hard to understand him on the phone, adding to the difficulty of getting troubleshooting completed. After having to ask for an update on my ticket 5 times, I gave up and bought the above-mentioned USB controller card. He's yet to respond after several months.
All said, I don't know that I'd buy this again.
This review is from: Silverstone PCI-E to USB 3.0 Add-On Card Model SST-EC04-P
Pros: Finally, my USB 3.0 drive array is stable!
Has internal 3.0 header plug
Other Thoughts: My Intel MoBo has a Renesas chipset built-in, but still, nothing connected via 3.0 was stable. I always got the dreaded disconnect/reconnect. Not anymore! This one also appears as Renesas, but works! The RAID-1 drive array and Lexar MicroSD card reader both perform flawlessly, and I'm seeing sustained 130MB/sec file transfers on large files, which seems to be limited by the external array's capabilities.Highly recommend!
I have noticed that the SD reader gets quite warm during use, and since heat = power, I'm glad this card is externally powered!
This review is from: Rosewill RTMT-11001 10:1 DS Infrared Thermometer
Pros: Works just as good or better than my trusty HF one. Accurate enough, especially for the price!
Cons: Doesn't make bacon?
Other Thoughts: Be aware of the limitations of this type of thermometer - it works best on matte-finish surfaces.READ FULL REVIEW
