Silverstone PCI-E to USB 3.0 Add-On Card Model SST-EC04-P

5 out of 5 eggs Good card after finding a working driver 12/27/2012

This review is from: Silverstone PCI-E to USB 3.0 Add-On Card Model SST-EC04-P

Pros: Installed Easy and works great after finding a working driver. I tested it using a USB3.0 enclosure and Terracopy, hit a max of 61MB/s copying a 4GB file. Benchmarked the same drive at 83.3MB/s vs 10.1MB/s on USB 2.0 using SiSoftware Sandra

Cons: Incorrectly labeled EC04-P, The one I recieved was a EC04 (not -P), EC04 uses a TI chip vs a Renesas chip in a EC04-P.

Other Thoughts: I misplaced the disc that came with the card (Because it is a mini CD) while building my computer. After installing windows I only had one device listed in the unknown section of Device Manager. I downloaded all 3 drivers for the EC04-P from silverstone's website but none would work. Finally, I decided To try the drivers for the EC04. Worked on the first try.

Seagate Samsung Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012 (HN-M500MBB/EX2) 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5

Pros: Large Drive for a good price

Cons: Causes Windows 7 to BSOD when OS is installed on it

Other Thoughts: I tried to use this drive in my laptop (I ran out of space on my 250GB stock Drive) so I installed this drive and and a fresh copy of Windows 7 Pro x64. This worked OK for a few days then started Blue screening, a lot, sometimes as many as 5 times a day. I tried formatting and fresh installing Windows 7 twice. The only way to get my computer to stop BSOD'ing was to reinstall the original drive. I ran numerous diagnostics, drive passed them all including Samsung ES tool and Seagate Seatools. I contacted support and they simply told me "If both these tests pass then the drive itself should be in good working order." (both tests mean short and long self tests) So no help there. I ended up putting the drive in an external enclosure and using it that way. I am Highly disappointed as I have never had problems with samsung drives before they "merged" with Seagate.

Logitech V470 Blue 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Notebook Mouse for Bluetooth
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great battery Life, no annoying easy to loose dongle, the blue top finish shows absolutely no wear, power saving mode is great when i forget to turn it off for the night (happens 4/5 nights) Worked great with both Vista and Win 7. I don't notice any more lag than any other wireless mouse I own.

Cons: The rubbery finish on the sides is rubbing off and looks really bad, Doesn't like to be used with more than one computer (see other thoughts), the sticker with all the numbers (model, serial, etc) on the bottom is worn completely illegible. Clicking the scroll wheel doesn't act like the mice on my other computers (ie open a web link in a new tab) but this might just be a setting i can't find.

Other Thoughts: I have owned this mouse for 3 1/2 years, It has been a great travel mouse for my HP Laptop through college. It has been left on for days on end and I think i have only put 3 or 4 sets of batteries in it. I first bought it to use with Vista and it connected flawlessly. I then used it with my HTPC and it connected to Vista again with no problem, However when I tried to move it back to my laptop, I had a ton of trouble trying to get it to re-connect it instantly said connecting was "taking too long". When I up graded to Windows 7, once again it didn't miss a beat until I upgraded my HDD and tried to connect it to the new Win 7 Installation. Moral of the story, it's best to keep this mouse connected to just one computer.
