This review is from: Mini USB Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle For PC Laptop WIN XP Vista New
Pros: one of them worked just fine!
Cons: long time to get here from asia
I bought two , one of them works!
the one that wont work just blinks and bluetooth is seen in control panel but it will never allow you to turn the radio on.
Other Thoughts: at first neither worked, then I tried on various different machines and finally figured out how to get it to work, so then I took it out and put the other one in and it didn't work, so I put the one in all the machines & it worked in those .... that is when I realized one works 100% and the other one works 0%READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They gave me a free upgrade on the HDD !!! also the one I got had a quality MotherBoard , Intel DQ45CB .
Item arrived in like 3 days !! Item was packaged in a super strong cardboard box and was well wrapped in supper giant bubble wrap. I have bought heavy car parts like axles and wheel bearings that came in flimsier boxes !!! This is the mark of a quality company that cares about what they are doing.... they even had a custom splash screen in the bios, this again shows that this is a high quality vendor that pays attention to detail and cares about everything they do.
Cons: NONE AT ALL these PDS guys rock !
Other Thoughts: NEWEGG could take a lesson from this and only allow US vendors like this instead of these Chinese vendors that have been sending me junk lately.... I was almost through with new egg after getting a slew of garbage products from their 3rd party vendors BUT these PDS guys have saved the day. I looked them up and it seems PDS started in a garage a few years back and are now a large company that does asset recovery.. I think they operate out of the chicago area... anyway they impressed me very much with their refurbed PC. I almost want to contact them about buying a franchise and open a PDS branch here in Houston Texas......READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: almost 1400 MB/s read 740 MB/s write on AS SSD score of around 1100 ! No problem getting it to boot from a clean install of win 7 x 64 Pro. EVGA x58 132-bl-E758TR mother board from 2009. worked in either of my last two PCIx2.0x16 slots as a 2.0x4. full through put no problem.
Cons: Slight con is that cloning from my previous marvell PCIx 4 port raid card to the predator had too many issues, was able to finally make it work after two days of multiple tricks playing around with clonezilla and other software, mainly because the Raid 10 array is a Virtual Disk and I had a few data corruption problems while cloning and trying to align the partitions properly. I opted for a clean install which worked fine. Either way I was able to make it work OK at full speed and still able to boot from it. Others have reported issues getting it to boot after cloning with some motherboards and chipsets, I had issues but it was not impossible. This is only a slight con anyway because I should have just went with the clean install to start with.
Other Thoughts: This will breath new life into your old X58 motherboard. I am about to send mine for the westmere mod so I can switch from my i7-920 with a 50% overclock to an X5660. this should also yield a similar performance boost. I also have a raid zero array of 4x120GB sandisks that run in the next PCIx slot and I get a score of about 997 on ASSSD but that has the risk of data corruption whereas this new card should not have that issue and also support trim etc. So the PREDATOR X is awesome in my system 5 PLUS STARSREAD FULL REVIEW
