Pros: It works! Relying solely on my battery now does not cause my computer to shut down within a minute, so it definitely works as a replacement for U33Jc laptops.
Cons: The capacity is half that of the original battery: whereas the original battery was 85Wh, this battery only reports 48.4Wh, since the voltage is so much lower than the usual. Sure, it *could* be hiding a bunch of charge, but that's unlikely.
Other Thoughts: While the half-capacity is sad, I don't compute on the go enough to make the $130 Asus replacement a grand idea, and trying out all the other cut-rate batteries which may break my heart and kill me doesn't sound so appealing either...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Keydex UG-S1001BK ABS / Silicon 2.5" Black SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Eventually got it working in good form. Nice tool-less design, I like it. Able to upgrade smoothly to USB 3.0.
Cons: Wasn't clear how to get it to work with USB 2.0
Other Thoughts: For those of us that have systems that are still USB 2.0 only, it turns out that using the USB 3.0 portion of the cable works with USB 2.0, while the USB 2.0 cable portion of the Y doesn't actually do anything.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Thin as heck, has a numpad (for Blender work), large buttons. Enough area to grip the board single-handed.
Cons: A bit heavy, but that only improves its usability when fending off predators.
Other Thoughts: Since my laptop hasn't gotten back from the repairs shop, I haven't *actually* tried it, but it feels amazing. Can't wait to take it out on a spin with an actual CPU backing it.READ FULL REVIEW
