BELKIN F3U134vFLEX Flexible USB Adapter
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Useful, but not rugged 06/01/2014

This review is from: BELKIN F3U134vFLEX Flexible USB Adapter

Pros: This are very useful for connecting things like wireless mouse transceivers to a laptop.

Cons: They are not rugged. I've used up 3 of them in the last several years. The problem may be that a thin cable connects the end connectors, and eventually fails.

Other Thoughts: When I first bought one @ Radio Shack, it was by a company other than Belkin, and cost $5. Appears to be the exact same thing - now $10 or $11.

Eastwood  29 Piece Bit Ratchet Set
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Quality set 03/01/2013

This review is from: Eastwood 29 Piece Bit Ratchet Set

Pros: Very well-made and nicely-finished. Includes security-type Torx bits, and a 1/4-inch square drive for sockets. Compact.

Cons: Case is rigid plastic. It's pretty thick plastic, but I wouldn't carry it in a box full of other tools. The hinges look particularly vulnerable.

Other Thoughts: This is functionally similar to the old Chapman sets, but this ratchet handle is more substantial, and there is no screwdriver-type handle (which I don't miss). The other end of the ratchet also accepts bits, but does not ratchet. The ratchet has a small reversing lever, so you don't have to pull out the bit and put it in the other side to reverse, the way you do with Chapman. Unlike the Chapman sets, this one accepts all standard 1/4-inch hex bits.

Galaxy METAL GEAR Metal Gear Box II 3506UC-Black 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sturdy, compact, well-designed, worked perfectly as soon as it was assembled and connected.

Even with the cheapest shipping, it arrived THE NEXT DAY. Gotta like that.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I took a second hard drive out of a borked Windows machine and put it in this box. Then I connected the box to a Linux machine. Linux saw it immediately, and all the files on it are accessible.

People saying 'the holes don't line up' may be unfamiliar with a general rule of mechanical assembly: don't tighten ANY of the screws holding two pieces together until ALL the screws are started. The holes in the side covers of this box are kind of tight, but they do line up.

The data cable connector has to be pushed firmly into the drive connector; it felt seated when it was only halfway there. The snug fit is not a bad thing.

The external USB and power connectors fit snugly. Also not a bad thing.
