ORICO H4013-U3-BK USB 3.0 4 Ports Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs 11/24/2015

This review is from: ORICO H4013-U3-BK USB 3.0 4 Ports Hub

Pros: - Works as intended.
- Enough ports for what I'm using it for.
- Price.
- USB 3.0 advertised, but I haven't tested it.
- Ports are on top of each other with plenty of margin of spacing around them, instead of sitting side by side, which is convenient for wide or extra tall USB flash drives for example.

Cons: - Not enough ports for being a USB hub. I'd like to see more ports on USB hubs, 4 ports just simply is too few.

Other Thoughts: I only have USB 2.0 on my mainboard and case, so I can't tell you if the USB 3.0 is working or not. I can say that I've had zero problems with it so far. I can also say that I'm not using an AC adapter and am having no issues, though I don't have any components that would require the extra power. I will soon be upgrading my entire PC by the end of Cyber Monday 2015, so I may make a second review if something changes.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Works with the PC and Xbox 360
- Compatible with Windows 7 64-bit and Fedora 22 64-bit
- Wireless
- Very mundane Xbox controller (no frizzes or frills, decals, etc.)
- Black finish and color
- 2x AA batteries last for several hours (>18) of continuous playtime

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The dead zone for the two joysticks can be a bit troublesome in some games and applications. You can notice it in Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Steam Big Picture Mode for example, but in Grand Theft Auto 5 it's unnoticeable (probably because GTA5 PC is a port from the console version of the game, and consoles use controllers more commonly than full keyboards).

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - 10 year warranty
- Very quick reads and writes
- Terabyte of space

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to replace a Western Digital Caviar Blue 750GB HDD. The HDD has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installed. I booted into Fedora 22 on a flash disk and used dd to clone the entire HDD to the SSD. I then expanded the partition on the SSD to utilize the bigger drive that was now available. Windows booted up just fine from the SSD, and in fact booted up so quick I was unable to see my desktop wallpaper almost immediately after login, due to all the programs that I have configured to open at boot.
