Rosewill RC-103 - 4 + 1 USB 2.0 PCI Adapter (Four External + One Internal Ports)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I never thought I would need more USB ports, but I started plugging in all kinds of stuff, so I needed this card.

Cons: There is a USB slot for inside your case, I plugged in a thumb drive because I didn't want it just hanging out the back....well after 2 days, it quit reading the thumb drive. I removed it, plugged back in....nothing. So I put it in the back and it's worked fine ever since.

Other Thoughts: I guess I'll plug in a USB light or something for the inside, just to use it.

SteelSeries 69001 3G Game Controller
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Not that great 11/13/2013

This review is from: SteelSeries 69001 3G Game Controller

Pros: USB plug and play, and it works in my Toshiba Thrive tablet too. Now I can play my emulators on my computer.

Cons: So I try my N64 emulator, configure the controller.....the D-pad and the left stick are the same buttons. I think to myself "Duh, I should press the Mode button to turn it to analog!"
Well the Mode button just disables the D-pad.
Now you're probably thinking I'm just dumb and don't know what I'm doing.....well the right stick, guess what it controls? Buttons 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the right side! If that isn't the 2nd worst idea ever, I don't know what would top it.
This thing has a rumble function? Could have fooled me!

Other Thoughts: I'm just going to get an Xbox 360 wired controller.....anybody who wants this controller can have mine.

Vantec NexStar TX 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 2.5" HDD fits well, used a piece of the box to keep the drive from rattling, has a little green light to let you know it has power.
Came with a little screwdriver so you can put the screws in.

Cons: Doesn't work! I've tried with 1 USB and Both, HDD just makes a very faint click every second. Tried rebooting, didn't work. Did some research, apparently this happens with some of them.
Screws are super tiny, don't lose them!

Other Thoughts: Looks like I'll be returning this one.
My Apricorn ASW-USB-25 adapter works perfectly fine for this HDD, I just wanted some sort of enclosure to protect it.
