  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

TRIPP LITE LC1800 Line Conditioner - Automatic Voltage Regulation with Surge Protection
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Active protection against brownouts and surges
- piece of mind

Cons: - expensive

Other Thoughts: My home has whole house air conditioning which uses a lot of power and causes brownouts when the motor and pump turn on. Before I installed the line conditioner I had a lot of strange unexplained crashes, especially USB devices, bluetooth and video conference cameras, were really flakey.

I tend to rely on sleep mode and leave my systems on for months at a time. After I installed the line conditioner the system became much more reliable and I haven't experienced any odd crashes or misbehaving USB devices.

Vantec UGT-AH400U3-3C 4-Port USB 3.0 + 3 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - solid all aluminum construction
- tiny and lightweight
- 60W power supply
- 3 dedicated charging ports for when computer is off

Cons: - tiny and lightweight. With a few cables, it won't still still on a table top. I used a little earthquake hold putty to mount it to the top of my computer otherwise it would slide off.

Other Thoughts: I did a quick test reading from a USB3 flash drive (pny), and a USB3 hard disk (seagate). I was able to sustain over 170MB/s reads through a single USB port. This was on an ASUS M59A LE R2.0 motherboard running Linux. I don't have enough USB3 devices to really max out the bandwidth. Since this board only has rear mounted USB3 ports, this hub brings the ports to a location which is more useful.
