Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seems strong for a little piece of plastic
It did fit well

Cons: It's not threaded and there are no metal inserts, so it might be wise to plan on not switching drives or cases with it very frequently lest the screws strip out the holes.

Other Thoughts: Metal would be nicer for electrical grounding but modern 2.5" drives probably don't use enough power for that to be a big concern.

Another great value from Rosewill

5 out of 5 eggs Works well, simple and reliable 01/29/2016

This review is from: Rosewill RC-505 - 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Card

Pros: It hasn't had any problems in about 1 year of always-on use.
Rosewill always seems to deliver exceptional value.

Cons: There was some initial confusion about drivers and getting it recognized by Windows 7, but that was solved before long. In this case the driver on the CD worked rather than the newer, downloadable drivers.

Other Thoughts: It was the perfect upgrade for an older PC that developed a problem with the on-board USB 2.0 controller.
Of course the motherboard BIOS doesn't allow for booting from USB devices through an add-on like this.
Having a USB 3 interface doesn't magically make a drive any faster, and the USB 3 flash drives I've tested it with weren't designed for a high enough bandwidth to test the maximum transfer speed of this card, but because it uses a common NEC/Renesas controller chip it's likely that the PCIe x1 slot would be the limiting factor there.

ZOTAC GT 700 GeForce GT 730 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) ZT-71115-20L 4GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 (x8 lanes) Plug-in Card Zone Edition Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compact and Fanless
Cool, Low power consumption (~45w max TDP)
Lots of memory for textures etc.
Modern enough to support most new software

Cons: The D-sub header is actually a bit too close to the bracket's edge for the screwless fastening feature my ATX case, so now I have to use screws with every expansion card instead of with none of them, using the full height bracket.
No SLI support
It's not the fastest display adapter ever for PC gamers, but of course it's not supposed to be that.

Other Thoughts: This card is actually small enough that it might allow for expansion cards in the neighboring slots, which I haven't seen for a long time in the realm of high-performance, passively-cooled video cards.

It's a kind of strange animal, using only 8 lanes of a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot. Sure it might perform even better with higher bus and memory bandwidths, but overall it's great. Can't have it all, but one can hardly ask for more.

I only buy fanless video cards as every other type I've owned has eventually developed fan problems. It says a lot for the efficiency and longevity of the hardware if it doesn't need a fan. This one is a good example.
