Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Broke in 5 days. Covered by Warranty. Vantec was great in dealing with problem and very fast with the turn around shipping after they recieved the defective unit. 05/11/2016

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: Nice looking. Charging capacity for phones and tablets. Unobtrusive LED's. Had a positive review at another tech site. EDIT: See other below.

Cons: Died quickly, 5 days. Unit is getting very warm to the touch. When you plug in a thumb drive the blue LED next to each port no longer comes on. Can no longer communicate with desktop. Also, supplied USB cord is only 32 inches, should be a 6 footer. Ordered on 11.02.2014.

Other Thoughts: Would like to try another but... I think I will return for refund. Have not contacted Vantec yet.

EDIT on 05.11.2016 : Contacted Vantec shortly after the initial review. I sent back the faulty unit directly under warranty. (This was easier than returning to Newegg) They sent back a new unit that had a different power brick. It has been rock solid for well over a year. I would buy this again. I heavily use the charging ports for the cell phone and tablet.

MSI GeForce GT 730 DirectX 12 N730-2GD3V3 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Needed 3 for a Dell OptiPlex 390 and 3020 and an old vintage build. Dell's do not have extra power cables and have only 265 watt PSU, so needed slot/buss powered card of 50 watts or less. This video card is 49 watts. Works well. Not a gamer card due to DDR3 memory but for a daily task, internet machine it is better than the built in video. It has a wider selection of cable options HDMI, DVI-D, D-Sub. This is a very solid video card for its intended use.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I was very impressed with the clean, high quality circuit design. 10 year Warranty.

This review is from: Silicon Power 64GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Retractable Flash Drive, Black
