USB 2.0 5 PORT (4+1) 1 INTERNAL PORT PCI HUB CARD HIGH SPEED ADAPTER

1 out of 5 eggs Deceptive Practice 12/08/2015

This review is from: USB 2.0 5 PORT (4+1) 1 INTERNAL PORT PCI HUB CARD HIGH SPEED ADAPTER

Pros: Probably a working USB card.

Cons: The photo of this product shows a card with a NEC chipset, but they ship cards with the Via chipset. Why bother to provide a product photo if it has no relationship to the product actually shipped? With their return policy there's no point in bothering with the return process. Why can't people actually sell what they advertise?

These card's are useless to me. I did my homework. I carefully examined the photo to determine that the NEC chipset was shown, since they don't bother to specify in the description, but they don't ship what they show.

Other Thoughts: Going to get a somewhat more expensive card that specifically says NEC chipset. But if one can't rely on the photo, why bother to provide a photo? There's no "representational only" note. I expect to get what's shown.

5 out of 5 eggs Wrong for Dell E6410; Great Support from Gskill 06/11/2015

This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GRSL

Pros: This review is more about Gskill's support than about this particular product. I bought two sets of this memory back around the 2014 holidays for my Dell Latitude E6410s.

This memory does not work properly in the Dell E6410. use G.Skill F3-8500CL7D-8GBSQ instead.

I didn't get around to installing it until mid 2015. It seemed to work properly, but both laptops suffered what appeared to be hard drive failures (Windows OS corruption?) within a couple of weeks.

When I installed a new hard drive, I found that the Windows 7 OS installer wouldn't run. After troubleshooting (different disk, different DVD module, etc, finally, put back old memory) I found that this memory doesn't actually work properly in my E6410.

I contacted G.Skill and politely asked them if there was anything they could do for me. While it has a lifetime warranty, this isn't defective memory; I bought the wrong thing. I was well past the Newegg exchange period.

Without any argument, they immediately told me to arrange for an RMA and which memory to request as a replacement.

I submitted the RMA and within a brief period received the replacement memory, which is working properly.

Cons: I thought I did my research before purchasing. I thought that faster memory would just be run at slower speeds in an older computer, but apparently, the timing is just a little bit too far out of whack. My more recent research suggests something about CAS latency incompatibility.

Anyway, the only reason this is a con is that Gskill's website does not have an easy RAM selection guide. However, if I had checked Newegg's "Memory Finder" it would not have recommended this Model F3-1600C9D-8GRSL memory.

G.Skill does have a page on which you can list memory specifications to get a listing, which makes good sense, unfortunately, Dell doesn't make it easy to find such technical specifications on what is compatible and not compatible.

Other Thoughts: The quick summary is:

1) I bought the wrong thing and G.Skill fixed it for me fast and easy.

2) It was more difficult than I'd like to figure out what the right thing is, but with a little more care, I could probably have avoided the mistake.

3) In any case, kudos to G.Skill's support department.

SanDisk 32 GB microSD High Capacity (microSDHC) - 1 Card

5 out of 5 eggs Fully Functional in the Nook 03/04/2015

This review is from: SanDisk 32 GB microSD High Capacity (microSDHC) - 1 Card

Pros: Most 32GB cards I've tried in the Nook, while recognized, do not format properly and have difficulties with large data transfers, such as reloading a library.

This one appears to be fully functional in the Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight.

Cons: I don't know what quality about this card makes it work properly where other cards don't. I've tried a few other brands, including Kingston, and both class 4 and class 10 cards and none of them worked.

This one works, but they seem to have sent me a class 10 card instead of the class 4 card listed in the description. That's not really a con, it just makes it a little more difficult to have certainty when looking for a 32GB card for the Nook ST. Of course, why does one really need 32GB in the Nook ST? Because it says it's compatible with up to 32GB and darn it, I want 32GB. Never mind that the 700+ books I have so far don't fill up 1 GB. :-)
