BYTECC PCIe NEC Chipset 2 Ports USB 3.0 Card Model BT-PEU310

5 out of 5 eggs works fine with ubuntu 10.04 01/08/2015

This review is from: BYTECC PCIe NEC Chipset 2 Ports USB 3.0 Card Model BT-PEU310

Pros: Selected this because I wanted a USB 3.0 card that used a chipset that I expected would be compatible with Ubuntu 10.04. My research led me to believe that only the NEC chipset would work with that version of Ubuntu server (10.04 apparently has the first usb 3.0 code that was incorporated into the Linux kernel. It did work fine and is recognized as a usb 3.0. Works fine with a usb 3.0 external drive that I use for backups.

Cons: only two ports

Samsung Galaxy S Glide SGH-I927 4 GB storage, 1 GB RAM, 1 GB ROM Black Unlocked Cell Phone w/ QWERTY Keyboard / 4.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: For the price I impressed. Good value. Boots with Roger's logo. I'd prefer a plain old Samsung logo but no harm. I run it on Fido in Canada so not the greatest test because it work even if it was still locked.

Verified unlocked by entering code: *#7465625#
The response indicates it is unlocked - at least based on the info I found floating around on the net to confirm:

Network Lock OFF
Network Subset Lock OFF

Cons: 1) No ICS upgrade available yet from Samsung. Although it appears one will be forthcoming eventually.
2) Has some Roger's apps installed that I really don't want. Can't seem to find a way to remove them.

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830M Onyx Black Unlocked Cell Phone w/ Android OS / 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Mine came with Android 2.3.6 installed (aka gingerbread). No need to spend time upgrading.

Also the description says 3.5 inch screen in one place and 5.-0 screen in another place. It's a 3.5 inch screen.

I only expect to use this for gmail and calendar access. I have no reason to expect it to have any trouble with that.

I was quickly impressed with the maps app.

For the price I pleased.

Cons: Haven't used it long enough to really tell. The case doesn't appear super durable, back cover to be specific... but it's not a high end phone so I didn't expect it to be. Comes with a spare white back cover if it is ever a problem.
