This review is from: KINGWIN ADP-07U3 USB 3.0 to SSD & SATA Adapter
Pros: Looks and feels well made. The adapter connection to the drive feels solid and connects well.
When it works, the SATA-III and USB-3 speeds are great, but that does not happen often enough.
Cons: Drops the drive connection frequently.
The cable is very stiff so it pulls the USB plug at an angle unless you lay it all out perfectly relative to a the computer USB port and then put a weight on the cable so it can't be accidentally nudged.
A similar problem exists with the USB-B plug into the back of the adapter. That too is prone to slight movement. At any given time, the slightest bump of the desk can make it drop the connection.
If the adapter and a drive is plugged into the computer USB port and then win8 is cold-booted, it hangs at the first start up screen. I have to unplug the adapter from the USB port, then Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart the win8 boot cycle.
Other Thoughts: Having a thinner and more flexible cable soldered directly into the adapter would solve these issues. How do I know that? I bought a Syba SD-ENC50037 adapter which covers both those issues very nicely and in three months, it has never dropped a connection. Sadly, that is only a SATA-II adapter so it is slower.
Not worth shipping back, besides I have waited too long and a replacement would be no better if it has the USB
Pros: Excellent BT mouse. It paired right away with both laptops. One with Vista and an ASUS BT dongle, and the other with built in BT.
Cons: The description didn't give a size for it, and it is a little small for my hands. Dropped it one egg for that.
Other Thoughts: For the record it is 4" long and just on 2" at it's widest. I'd prefer something a little bigger. The RF mouse I have replaced with this one is 4-1/4" long, not much in that, but the width is almost 2-1/2" That makes the difference.
Having said that I came back to the original order to find the link to this mouse. I am about to order another one so that I have one for each laptop.
Probably get this bit cut out, but Newegg's super saver free shipping sucks. I live out in the country and mail is delivered to my PO box in town instead of my street address. Cost me a 60-mile round trip to go get it.
