SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 shared port controller card Model SD-VIA-5U
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs No drivers! 02/26/2015

This review is from: SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 shared port controller card Model SD-VIA-5U

Pros: None

Cons: No drivers for anything newer than Windows 98/ME.

Other Thoughts: I searched everywhere for a driver to get this card working in my Windows 2008 x64 server and found nothing, not even on the VIA website. Waste of money! and it will cost more to ship back than I paid for the stupid thing, so I am out $8.

GOgroove Pal Bot Portable Rechargeable Android Speaker with Dual High Excursion Drivers and Passive Subwoofer - Works with Apple, Samsung, LG and more Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, MP3 Players
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I loved this speaker while it lasted! It sounded great for it's cost and size.

Cons: The speaker wire.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this on 6/7/2013 to use mostly in my bathroom to listen to podcasts and occasionally to take on travels. It was exposed to high moisture conditions on a daily basis and I was sure that the moisture would eventually kill it, however it never did. It was the retractable speaker wire that caused it's demise.
Just before Christmas of 2014 I lost one of the speakers but I noticed that if I wiggled the wire down near the jack I could sometimes get the stereo (both speakers) back working. That lasted for 1-2 weeks before I got no audio from it at all. I'm 100% sure that the copper inside the wire where it goes into the jack had broken due to constantly pulling it out and rewinding it back in. I tried cutting off the plug about an inch up the wire and splicing on an old headphone jack but I could not get it to work.

So in conclusion, this is a great speaker, but I highly recommend leaving the wire out all the time, do not rewind and pull it out a lot or this will probably happen to you too.

5 out of 5 eggs Follow Up Review 10/15/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RCM-8163 True 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB WebCam

Pros: I'm running 3 of these webcams on a Core2 Quad HP XW4600 Workstation running Windows Server 2008 R2 with 8GB DDR2 6400 RAM. I use Ispy software to use the cameras as a security system. See my 3/11/2013 review for detailed steps.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a follow up to my review "Works great as security camera" on 3/11/2013.

I was able to successfully get these cameras working on a Windows 2008 R2 x64 server by installing the Desktop Experience feature.

1. Open Server Manager: click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and click Server Manager.
2. In the Features Summary section, click Add features.
3. Select the Desktop Experience check box, and then click Next.
4. Complete the wizard by clicking Install.
