Built-in Motion Plus Remote + Nunchuck Controller for Wii + Silicone Case + Wrist Strap
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works on my PC (running a Wii emulator.)

Cons: The rumble is the same intensity as other WiiMotes I've used, but on this WiiMote it's significantly louder (but not unbearable.)

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI-E PCI Express 4-Port with 4-pin IDE Power Connector

1 out of 5 eggs Broke after a Year - Very Little Use 04/24/2015

This review is from: SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI-E PCI Express 4-Port with 4-pin IDE Power Connector

Pros: None

Cons: One day I decided to connect a 2.5" HDD to this PCIe card using a non-active power SATA III to USB 3.0 cable, and I received a "Short Circuit" notification on my Windows desktop. I figured that this notification was merely a failsafe that just shuts off power to the device until all devices connected to it are removed, but it won't even work for things like an 8GB flash drive, USB keyboard, or USB mouse; it's truly dead.

Other Thoughts: I connected the same HDD and adapter to a USB 3.0 port on the motherboard and it worked fine. Then I connected the same HDD and adapter to a USB 2.0 port on the motherboard and it still worked. Then I connected the HDD to a 2.5" to 3.5" enclosure, connected that to a 3.5" to 5.25" enclosure, connected that to the original SATA III to USB 3.0 adapter, connected that adapter to a USB 2.0 extender, then connected that extender to the same USB 2.0 port on the motherboard, and even though none of the cables/adapters are active power it still works perfectly fine. why the PCIe card with supplementary Molex power couldn't handle a single 2.5" HDD is beyond my understanding.

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought two, and:
they fit in the case,
they definitely help with airflow.

Cons: -1/2: The blue LED is the weakest LED out of all of my other fans.
-1/2: The LED intensity depends on the RPM of the fan (other 3-pin fans I have don't work this way.)
-1: There's no way it's only 19dB at 2000RPM. At 1300RPM just 1 of these is louder than the other 9 fans in the desktop combined, and several of those fans are listed as 23dB.
-1 1/2: Both the fans are mounted with the airflow parallel to the ground on a level surface, and unless the fans are set to 1300 to 1400 RPM they produce a VERY annoying rattling sound.
