This review is from: SYBA SY-ADA40087 Driverless 2.5" SATA III to M.2 SSD Adapter
Pros: I'm constantly cloning drives to larger ones. A USB 3.0 dock is great for 3.5" & 2.5" drives, but adapters are needed for mSATA and M.2. This works great for all the M.2. units I've tried so far. The whole chain - M.2. to Syba to dock to USB 3.0 is plug&play and cloning software has no problems, even with upsizing partitions during clone.
Cons: See below
Other Thoughts: Method of SSD mounting (3 tiny pieces - nut, bolt & spacer) is ok for a permanent install, but if you are often changing cards and sizes, it's a pain. Actually just using a rubber band now - works fine for the limited time it takes to clone.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got 2 pairs on "Daily Special". Wanted to upgrade to 16GB and these were cheaper than the slower RAM my AMD970 board can actually use. So far running as expected, but will never see 2133MHz unless I change MB.
Cons: Heat sinks very tall - #1 slot wouldn't clear my CPU cooler.
Scoped removing heat sinks as MB will only allow 1600MHz - adhesive looked stronger than PCB - didn't even try to pry.
Fairly simple to move fan to other side and set to suck instead of push. Still runs same temps even with all 8 cores at 100%.
Other Thoughts: Took 1 "egg" off for NewEgg's shipping UPS/Post Office combo. UPS hub 15 miles from me, USPS office 8 miles. UPS had it locally in time for delivery, but instead of going to my house, UPS takes it to my local Post Office for delivery the next day - wasteful.
Was expecting my AMD970MB/FX-8370 to max at 1833MHz, which it did with 2 modules installed. Putting all 4 in, the MB dropped it to 1600MHz.
Found hidden footnote on Gigabyte site that 1833 only works with 2 DIMMS due to NorthBridge heating issues with 4 channels active.
This review is from: Pyle PHBT5B Headset
Pros: Ordered one black & one red - red one works fine
Paired with 2 phones, 2 tablets & laptop. No dropouts up to 40 ft from source. Good sound when playing audio. Hands-free phone works ok
Cons: Black headset has constant screech from right earpiece.
Same problem with all 5 sources that work fine with the red headset.
Have sent 2 requests to seller "Quality Car Audio" for RMA - still no response from them.
Other Thoughts: Would have rated higher, but with 1 of 2 being defective and lack of response from seller can only go 2 starsREAD FULL REVIEW
