This review is from: Sedna PCI Express (PCIe) SATA III (6G) SSD Adapter with 1 SATA III Port
Pros: -allowed the addition of two drives. The one that sits in the adapter via the pcie lane and a second drive can be connected by the lone sata port and the back of the adapter.
-drivers were not needed, drives where detected right away by both windows 7 and 10.
Cons: for the first two weeks of use it worked great but drives attached to the pcie adapter suddenly stopped being detected by the system. Not just the OS but even the bios doesn't see the drive. The other drive connected to the sata port in the back of the adapter still works fine but nothing connected directly to the adapter (as shown in the photos) work. I re-seated the card and even installed the drivers from the disc though i knew it wouldn't help as in the drive wasn't appearing in the bios well before the OS loads. The adapter apparently faltered about two days after the very generous 30 warranty period.
Other Thoughts: Sedna support is virtually nonexistent. There website isn't worth the time to investigate. Few of the links in the support section function including the contact link. Heck even the link thats provided on the newegg listing page doesn't work, go ahead try it. Tried applying for RMA but after filling out the form and clicking the submit button nothing happens. If the item had been dirt cheap i'd just let it go but for $30 i'd expect at least basic support services. Two stars just because the lone sata port still works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Ptble Notebook Laptop LED USB 2 Fans Cooler COOLING blue
Pros: it won't make a dramatic difference in temp but it will knock off a few degrees. Its very affordable and the truth is units that cost alot more won't do that much better if any better at all.
Cons: the cord could be a little longer and would like to see a protective plate on the bottom. (see below)
Other Thoughts: for my laptop i got lower temps by placing it upside-down so a guard on both sides would be nice. The cord could also stand to be another six inches longer. the short cord might be a problem for those with wider laptops.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: no this ssd won't set benchmarks records but thats not the reason to buy this. Its still faster than any non ssd hard drive is ideal for lowend/ budget systems. Performance is pretty good overall.
Cons: My unit ran a little hot but nothing critical. It didn't help matters that its in a laptop.
Other Thoughts: recommended for older systems and entry level laptops. this system wouldn't make much use of the speed that a faster ssd could provide. It should also last a long time being enterprise class. would buy again.READ FULL REVIEW
