Bluetooth Version 4.0 V4 Dongle Micro Bluetooth Dongle Adapter With CSR8510 Chipset USB 2.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Reliable CSR chipset. Works with appropriate software.

Cons: The "appropriate software" doesn't come with this product! What came with this was TRIAL driver software! Until you shell out addition money to the software developer (up to $50), your bluetooth adapter will be reset after every two megabytes of data that flows through it! With each reset, there is a nag that pops up asking you to purchase and activate the driver software! And the trial ends after 30 days!

Other Thoughts: I paid $10 for this bluetooth dongle thinking I was getting a great deal. It was a lie and a scam. The product description said that this came with a driver called CSR Harmony, but it did not! Instead, it shipped with a free-trial version of something called BlueSoleil. When I tried using CSR Harmony with this (sent to me through email by the seller after BlueSoleil gave me this headache), it said there was no license for me to use the driver with this adapter! It did this on every computer I tried this on. The seller tried sending me a free replacement for the one that gave me this trouble. It was the exact same thing!

Beware: If you buy any cheap bluetooth adapter that comes with BlueSoleil, you will have to dish out additional money to make full use of the Bluetooth dongle; it's SHAREware HARDware! Return it immediately! There are bluetooth adapters that come with a full version of the BlueSoleil driver, but these cost over twice as much!

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F2 HD103SI 1TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This drive was my ticket to the world of terabyte hard drives. I'm always choosing drives more for longevity than performance, and that means spindle speeds around 5,000 rpm. That said, when I upgraded my system from a quite sturdy 120GB Maxtor that I have had for nearly ten years, I was blown away by the performance increase in my system from this Samsung drive in booting up Windows XP and starting programs (after performing a "ghosting" of my old drive to this new one), just as I was blown away when I had upgraded to that Maxtor from an older drive. And as expected from every 5,400-rpm drive I've owned, it runs nice and cool which is what I aim for in a drive that I hope will last as long as most of my other 5,400-rpm drives. I've been running with this Samsung for several months, and it's looking good, so far.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Since I started building my own computers over fifteen years ago, I've made it a point to run them in a way to make them last as long as possible. Way back, someone told me that the fastest killer of electronics was cycling power. Thanks to that, I have been running my computers 24/7 without any power-saving. Computers don't consume much electricity, so I have no qualms about it. And I credit this practice for allowing the several hard drives I've purchased over the years to last all the way through their useful lives and retire still fully functional, most of them running for ten years or more!
