SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

1 out of 5 eggs just plain bizarre 04/10/2016

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: it fits in the socket

Cons: reversing cables caused one drive to disappear, problematic drivers

Other Thoughts: It worked fine in Linux but the Windows drivers are worthless. If I switched the cables when backing up from a 500GB to a 1TB drive, the 1TB drive would not appear. But if I booted into Linux it was fine. I went on a treasure hunt for drivers, and found three. One of them worked, but I wouldn't depend on this card for critical data. BTW I have 45 years experience in the computer business so I actually know what I am doing.

EVERCOOL EGF-7 70mm Case Cooling Fan

1 out of 5 eggs sometimes fails to turn 02/28/2015

This review is from: EVERCOOL EGF-7 70mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: quiet

Cons: about half of them would sometimes not startup

Other Thoughts: I bought a bunch of these and found that about half of them would occasionally fail to start turning. Easy to test which ones will fail by gently touching the fan center and stopping it. If it doesn't start turning after removing your finger, dump it in the trash and try the next one. After having a number of customer's computers go into thermal shutdown because the fan wouldn't start, I moved on to another fan. I haven't had this problem with the larger Evercool green fans.

CyberPower CP850PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS 850 VA 510 Watts PFC Compatible Mini-Tower
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: looks nice

Cons: would not turn on fresh out of the box

Other Thoughts: Unpacked the box, plugged it in and charged overnight. Will not turn on. Opened battery compartment and checked connections. Tested battery, fully charged fine 13.3V. I have the feeling that this was never tested coming off the assembly line and that does not bode well for Cyberpower quality control.
