Pros: Performs as advertised. Works fine with an older PC3 10666 8GB module from G.Skill.
Cons: Why are some DDR3-1333 modules rated as PC3-10600 and others as PC3-10666? Memory manufacturers need to get their acts together in this regard. RAMMon shows both operating at 10666 MB/s. It's irritating to find identical RAM under two different listings when you're checking prices.
Other Thoughts: It's from G.Skill - I don't even look at RAM from anyone else any more.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Can't cook eggs on the cover because it runs so cool
Other Thoughts: I put this and a 128GB Samsung SSD in my HP DV7-6000 laptop (3 spindle laptops rock!!), replacing the 5400rpm 750GB drive that was originally installed. This drive is a perfect companion for the SSD. I couldn't be happier. The 5400rpm drive is now doing duty as an external backup device and is more than fast enough for that role. Having swap and temp on this drive is not noticeably slower than having them on the SSD (at least not with 16GB RAM installed) and I'm avoiding all the excess wear on the SSD.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN ADP-10 USB 3.0 to SSD & SATA adapter
Pros: It's nice to finally own a USB adapter that is limited only by the drive's sustained transfer rate, at least in regard to hard drives. I didn't test it with my SSD.
Cons: Only works with 2.5" drives
No 12v support
Other Thoughts: A 12v power port would have been a nice addition, even if they didn't include a power supply in order to keep the cost down.
I only needed to transfer data off my old laptop HDD after upgrading to a SSD so the lack of 3.5" support wasn't an issue when I chose this adapter; I was only looking at price.
