This review is from: StarTech Model KYC1MF 6" IBM PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse Y-Splitter Cable
Pros: Cheap and appears to be well constructed.
Cons: I also assumed that a PS/2 Y-Splitter would work on a motherboard with a combination KB/Mouse port. Apparently I and many others were wrong. If what one of the reviewers was told by Asus that their combo PS/2 port supports either/or, not both KB & Mouse then I guess we should be giving the MB manufacturer a 1Star rating for implementing such a ridicules concept and ourselves for ASSUMING.
Other Thoughts: I guess it never dawned on the MB folks that if you want to use either a PS/2 Mouse or a PS/2 KB that you might just want to use both! What a concept! The product is probably deserves a 5 star rating unless what some others have said is that the cable color codes are backwards.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VANTEC HDA-525P 3.5" to 5.25" Front Bay Converter Kit
Pros: Looks nice. Hard plastic rather than soft plastic.
Cons: Wouldn't fit in the 5.25" external drive bay of my Corsair Obsidian 750D case. The front panel was about One Sixteenth of an inch too wide. The front panel which is attached to the front of the enclosure rather than the enclosure being molded as a single unit was wider than the main unit. I ended up sanding off the excess using very fine grit sand paper on a sanding block.
It took about 30 minutes to complete the process (I had two adapters to fix).
Other Thoughts: Aside from the above, the front panel is rather fragile, it could be damaged easily if your not careful installing and removing the adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech 1 Port PCI Express IDE Controller Adapter Card
Pros: Works with my internal IDE ZIP drive.
Other Thoughts: I had long ago given up on finding an adapter that would work with my Iomega Zip drive. Over a period of about a year, I tried 3 other adapters, 2 PCI slot based cards and 1 direct attach adapter. None worked with the ZIP drive, this one does.READ FULL REVIEW
