Pros: Its a cable.
Which goes from eSATA to SATA. Does just that.
Seems to be standard cable quality, at a standard cable price. Go figure.
Performance seems to be about the same as eSATA, as expected.
Cons: No problems so far.
Other Thoughts: Got this cable so that eSATA hard drives can be connected to motherboard SATA ports.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SG105 Unmanaged 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving
Pros: For me, the most noticeable aspect of this product is how solid the construction is. It feels very solid in the hand, and the general impression is that is a very well built product. It feels more solid that my Netgear switch, also of metal construction.
The size of the device is pretty standard for 5 port ethernet switches. Like most others, it has wall mounting holes on the back.
The device stays very cool while under heavy load, unlike some other network switches I have owned.
The metal construction and temperature lead me to believe that this switch should last for a long time.
The performance of the switch is very good, mostly similar to other gigabit switches. It easily handles regular media tasks (sharing internet, gaming, streaming), but file transfers show its true performance, where it comes pretty close to theoretical bandwidth.
For a very solid product, the current price ($30) is a very good deal.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a pretty standard switch. It functions and performs exactly how you would exect it to and does so in a well constructed package. If you are unsure about this switch, I would highly recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This wireless card is very fast, on my campus wireless network, the card is often twice as fast as my laptop's wireless.
The reception of the card is terrific as well, it has much better signal strength and range than my laptop's card.
This card works out of the box for GNU/Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X (for you hackintosh people out there).
Cons: No cons, this card is a bit pricey but it is a high performance card. Buyers should be aware of what they are getting.
Other Thoughts: My old card (linksys wmp110) would freeze my computer frequently under GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and sometimes Windows as well.
I am very happy to have a replacement.
