Merax CD Wallet Refill Sleeves (Ring Binder Sleeves with 4 Binder Holes, White)  For 2 CD/DVD Media Discs Storage, 50-Pack
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy to see discs through the outer layer of the sleeve. Fabric layer separating the pockets is clean and lint free. The whole sleeve is thin, but strong, so doesn't add a lot of bulk. A slight "indentation", I guess you could call it, in the vertical sides, so that the discs don't just drop in, but once they're in there, they're unlikely to fall out. This is better than the flap on some sleeves that can cause a bit of a struggle when securing the discs inside.

Cons: About the only drawback to these sleeves is that I haven't found a binder suitable for a small number of discs in sleeves. This may just be the nature of the beast, but it seems that the only binders I can find -- including those made by Merax -- are for several hundred to a thousand discs. This is cool, I suppose; if I were transporting my whole music collection, say, and wanted to leave the jewel cases behind, that would be one thing. But, if I want to put a collection of old-time radio shows in a nice, neat little package, that comes down to holding the dozen or so sleeves together with a rubber band or whatever. But, if you do have a few hundred or more discs in sleeves to deal with, these are definitely the sleeves you want.

Other Thoughts: if I need to buy any more sleeves, I'll definitely go with Merax.

Rosewill RC-216 PCI Express eSATA II x 2 / ATA 133 x1 RAID 0/1/0+1/JBOD mode Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The SATA and eSATA ports worked fine. I didn't get a chance to use the ATA133 port, though. On-board BIOS seemed to slide right into the system map just fine.

Cons: On drives larger than 2TB, Windows XP 32-bit couldn't see the drives at all, except as SCSI data storage devices. Tried a GPT loader, but it didn't do SCSI. Rosewill used a JMicron chip on this card that causes the problem. However, Linux sees the drives just fine without any additional drivers, and I understand that WinXP 64-bit and all versions later than XP work fine.

Other Thoughts: I'm not using the card at the moment, because I only have one compatible PCIe slot on his board, and I needed that slot for a gigabit NIC. On later builds, though, I intend to use the card if I need an IDE connector or extra SATA/eSATA ports.
