StarTech USB3SPNLAFHD 1.64 ft. Blue 2-Port Panel Mount USB 3.0 Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Solid cable, flexible arrangement 04/12/2014

This review is from: StarTech USB3SPNLAFHD 1.64 ft. Blue 2-Port Panel Mount USB 3.0 Cable

Pros: Solid quality cable. Each USB connector having its own pair of screw mountings provides the most flexible mounting arrangement

Cons: None so far really. I had a bit of an issue connecting the 20 pin connector to the USB 3.0 card, but mostly because I didn't want to apply too much force and potentially bend pins so I unmounted the card and carefully held the connectors and clicked it together and remounted the card.

Other Thoughts: Given the particular case that I have (an older eMachines) I wasn't sure how practical it would be to get front side USB 3.0 ports in the place where there was space for them and a covered cutout in the sheet metal. Well, it all worked great, in part thanks to the individual connector heads and flexible screw mountings of this cable.

Sony Xperia ZL C6502 HSPA+ Black 3G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Cell Phone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Overall GREAT phone, fast, good resolution and clarity 04/05/2014

This review is from: Sony Xperia ZL C6502 HSPA+ Black 3G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Cell Phone

Pros: Slim, lightweight feeling for its size, decent screen resolution and clarity, though other reviews about the viewing angle issue are truer than I would like to admit. Responsive camera, with flash. Good phone and sound quality. Nice Sony earbuds provided. Nice themes, fairly easy to navigate, relatively little installed garbage on it... but... see cons.

Cons: I came from an original Samsung Galaxy S (yes, the original from almost 4 years ago!) updated to 2.4, and I was used to the black background with white text theme which is FAR better for reading and the eyes than the basic themes in Android 4.x from what I can tell. It appears there aren't options for going to that sort of theme in the base applications like Contacts, Mail, Messaging, etc., unless you root your phone. Bad.
Other things to consider are:
- you can't replace the battery.
- there is a very tiny ridge around the glass where it meets the case that seems to attract dust, dirt, and tiny crumbs. weird. and a bit annoying.
- there are some duplicate apps that Sony stuffs on here (basically 2 different kinds of album/photo managers, but weirdly unless I haven't found it yet, no basic file manager

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great phone and a good choice if you want decent performance, don't need all the absolute latest and craziest stuff, though it is a pretty solid combination of features and specs. Unfortunately, this new phone has also hit the sidewalk once already and the glass chips relatively easily, and the somewhat soft rubber backing/case can easily get scuffed. The current prices are reasonable for what you get, and the big bonus is the ability to use on any carrier when you travel... as I do... just by switching the SIM. Sweet.
