Vantec Power Gem Black 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-BK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good for multiple uses 01/03/2014

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Black 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-BK

Pros: Good for many full recharges of my phone.

Good for any super-low power 5V devices. Many of these batteries of this type will drop the output power pretty aggressively which makes them no good for very low power devices like a microcontroller. This one works very well for that use though. I've powered an Arduino based project for more than 24 hours (it could have run for another week).

Cons: Nothing significant. The case styling is a little goofy with those weird triangle facets. I suppose in a competitive market they try to do something random in order to stand out. But I'd buy more of these when the need arises.

Other Thoughts: It does exactly what you'd expect of it.

SanDisk Ultra Plus SDSSDHP-256G-G25 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice graphics on the label, very lightweight. Nice color scheme.

During the short time it worked it worked it booted quickly.

Cons: After a reboot cycle made necessary by Windows Update it never booted again. About the only silver lining was that for about 30 minutes I was able to connect to it via a USB dock and I was able to transfer my browser bookmarks over to a replacement disk. Good thing that it was only two months since I cloned it from a spinning disk. Within minutes of that file transfer the disk, was never recognized by Windows Disk Manager. It is 100.00% useless now.

Other Thoughts: NEVER switch over to a flash disk unless you treat it like it will fail tomorrow. I am giving TWO THUMBS UP for the free Western Digital edition of Acronis, a free download from their website. Cloning is the way to go with disk replacements.

LOGISYS FP528BK USB 2.0  3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The USB and eSATA slots work OK.

Cons: The CF card slot is very shallow and probably a little too wide. As a result it's not easy to insert the card straight in. On the third time I inserted a CF card it got in at an angle and bent the pins, which also damaged the card. The plastic case of the CF card got gouged and several of the holes got plugger, never to work again even in a good card reader. It really seems that this reader violated CF design standards. By contrast, the external Lexar card reader I bought to replace this has a precise slot that is very deep and the cards always go in straight.

Other Thoughts: The cabling was also a mess. Everything about this card says that they cut too many corners during their race to the lowest price. In my recently built PC this is the only component that was a dud. The reason I chose this model was that it also integrated USB and eSATA slots which I do use regularly.
