Rosewill Transclosure RX200R-APU3-25B – External Hard Drive Enclosure – Dual Slots for 2 x 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Compact form, metal enclosure (heat dissipation), flexible configuration, decent length USB cord, performance (raid 0 with HDD).

Cons: Shaky documentation, non-intuitive configuration, mode switch potential failure point if overused

Other Thoughts: Read the product description and other reviews for a general overview. Takes a few attempts to figure out mode changes (RTM!) and you may need to reboot host if USB device not recognized after a change. Otherwise performs well with 2x320GB WD Blue laptop drives in all modes. Raid0 was best for my use as I was looking for increased performance from 5400 rpm drives (got it) and not worried about data loss. I briefly tested each of the other modes, all worked as expected. Note any existing data on drives will be trashed when changing modes. Performed a 294 GB copy which kept both drives continuously writing for nearly an hour. External case temp rose 25F above ambient which is quite acceptable given close quarters. Just purchased 2 more.

TP-LINK TL-PB10400 :10400mAh Dual-USB Ultra External Portable Charger/ Power Bank,2A Fast Charging, Compatible with iphone, ipad and all iOS and Android Devices, Practical Flashlight
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 2A fast charging (nice), stays cool under load, unique form factor, quality finish, reasonable leds, travel pouch

Cons: Can not be charged while in use (minor)

Other Thoughts: This is a quality product on par with the best power banks (I own more than a few). The 2A charge rate makes a noticeable difference; can easily recharge overnight which is rare in a higher capacity pack. It remains well composed under load maintaining voltage even with two devices attached (3A draw). It does get warm to the touch (never hot) when charging which is to be expected give 2A rating. The auto on/off feature works well; no buttons to push to initiate charging and does not shut off prematurely. I especially like the leds: muted green and do not automatically come on while unit is discharging (they do illuminate while the device itself is being charged). I grabbed this pup on sale thinking it would go to the kid but it has quickly become my go-to-pack for traveling (sorry, jr).

Etekcity 8380 Lasergrip 774 Digital Infrared Thermometer with Laser Sight
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Compact, nice feel in hand, good D:S size, ability to toggle back light and laser, well written instructions

Cons: Accuracy, repeatability (yikes!)

Other Thoughts: I have several IR thermometers. This unit is calibrated 1-2 degrees F high depending on surface emissivity. Repeatability also lags; point at the same object twice under ideal conditions and get readings that differ upwards of a degree. I suspect the 12:1 D:S ratio is part of the problem along with barrel design (narrow opening). Given the price point the pros outweigh cons; just don't expect high accuracy/repeatability. Might pick up another to see if I got a bad sample.
