Silverstone PCI Express Card w/ USB 3.0 Internal Connector and USB3.0 Front IO ports - BlackModel SST-EC03B-P
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Data cable from front-facing external plate to USB3 header on the PCIe card has generous length: sufficient length to reach diagonally across my big, clunky DELL box.

Drivers from CD included in package worked first time.

I can now transfer 80MB/sec to an external Western Digital USB3.0 drive. (I think the bottleneck is that my PCIe slot, while 2nd Gen, is only running 1 lane. Maybe it's the WD. Whatever, I'm still VERY satisfied with that improvement in speed. Just went and ordered some USB3 flash drives so that I can sneakernet my movies to the living room that much faster.... )

Cons: Front of box has two different model numbers printed on it: SST-EC03-P and SST-EC03B-P. Neither one is a sticker. I used the SST-EC03 drivers from the provided CD first time and they worked, so I guess I'm glad I wasn't paying super-close attention, or I would have picked the driver setup for the EC03B.

So, not a con for me, really? Guess I got lucky.

Other Thoughts: Thanks to Newegg reviews, I knew to install the drivers before the hardware. Thanks to everyone who took the time to share their installation experiences.

ASUS EAH6450 Silent/DI/1GD3(LP) Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Economical card. Lets me watch 1080p video at my desk. No noise is always a plus.

Cons: Ghosting. Pretty noticeable and distracting depending on the circumstance. (that being anything with straight vertical lines, like, every Windows program or progress bar. :)

I have my monitor on an iogear KVM with the other host being a 10yo Dell 8300, and at the same resolution, on the same monitor, the 8300 does not produce the ghosting I see with this controller. Also, I never had a ghosting problem with this controller's predecessor (onboard SiS).

Still, 4 eggs because it's not noticeable to my eyes on moving video, really. And that video is rendered smoothly and was a big upgrade at a small price for me. If you'll be watching video (or playing games which aren't tetris or pac-man), I think this card should not be a problem.

But it's not exactly a home run.

Other Thoughts: Gets 1080p video to my screen smoothly.

I'm personally happy.

ASUS MeMO Pad HD7 Tablet - Quad-Core 1GB DDR3 RAM 16GB Flash 7
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Light, easy handling, screen just shy of perfect. 02/19/2014

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad HD7 Tablet - Quad-Core 1GB DDR3 RAM 16GB Flash 7" IPS 1280x800 WiFi, GPS - Pink Color (ME173X-A1-PK)

Pros: Perfect form factor if you use your tablet on your back.... in bed. The front edges do not dig into your fingers. If you have a big enough hand to operate this in one hand, with fingers curling around the front, the curvy edges make that easy. Of the several tablets I have with rear-speakers, this one has most consistent and impressive performance. Have not yet had to max out the volume to hear anything.

Cons: In power-saver mode, apps with a lot of light background (web browsing, book reading) result in a distracting amount of flicker. There are many adjustments that can be made in power-save mode, however. Perhaps I have not found optimal settings. Slight bleed/leak along left edge reading in portrait mode.

Other Thoughts: Bought it new (not refurb'ed) and haven't had any problem. I've really not yet found the perfect tablet, but this is quickly becoming my go-to. I've noticed that the standard price for new ones is generally now around $129 (instead of $149) if you shop right. Easily recommendable/giftable.

(N.B.: I'm not a gamer. Haven't tested it for those purposes.)
