This review is from: SanDisk 32GB Ultra SDHC UHS-I Card - Class 10 30MB/s
Pros: Black Friday special under $20 from New Egg!
Proven Sandisk Reliability and performance.
Cons: No problems to report.
Other Thoughts: I used this SDHC card in conjunction with an IDE to SD Card Adapter to replace a failing 32 Gb IDE HDD on my ageing Dell Latitude. The setup was easy and the D410 recognized the SDHC card as a fixed mode drive when using Debian Linux OS.
Drive read performance is at least equal or better than the old HDD while write performance is a little slower but not objectionable in general use.
At an installed price under $30 including the adapter it gives a new lease on life for this old clunker at a fraction of the cost of a new replacement IDE HDD.
This review is from: Tenda W150M Portable Wireless AP/Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Low price and portability with all the options.
Cons: Setup was not all that easy and is still not at 100%
I am using the W150 now as a Router and even though the unit is set for wireless B,G,N mixed mode none of my wireless G computers will display web pages even at an indicated full signal strength. Only wireless N cards will
work and I have not found the issue yet.
Other Thoughts: I like the unit, but be prepared to spend some quality time setting the unit up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: I jumped in and bought the M4 at just the right time for under $90 as it usually runs over $100.
The SSD already had the latest firmware revision (0009) so it did not need updating.
Cons: Not to fault this SSD, but it refused to be recognized by my PPC iMac G5
even in OS X Disk utility. So I installed it in my Windoz 7 desktop and it was immediately recognized and fully operational. I will be setting the M4 up as the Win 7 OS drive and use the disk for file storage. So long iMac!
Other Thoughts: I knew I was taking a risk when trying the M4 in an old SATA 1 Mac and there has been little help regarding SSD support for legacy Macs in the Crucial and Apple community forums, but I will put it to good use elsewhere.
Hats off to the Egg for great prices and prompt delivery.
