SYBA USB 3.0 PCI-e x1 2.0 Card with 2 External ports and internal 19 Pin USB 3.0 Header Model SD-PEX20139
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple to install. Good Syba quality. Compact size. Works well.

Cons: Card headers seem flimsy but work.

Other Thoughts: Needed USB 3.0 functionality for a couple boxes in my house. While this is an aftermarket card (no native Windows drivers) the software aspect (Renesas chipset drivers) of this solution seems to work for both Windows 7 and 10. Hardware seems solid as well - while the headers on the board (19 pin and molex power) are flimsy, I am not sure how Syba could have done it differently. Carefully inserting the cable ends into the card before snapping it into its PCI-E x 1 slot makes for a smoother install. As Syba has repeatedly stated, you MUST bring molex power to this card for USB 3.0 to work.

EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 01G-P3-1303-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quick install, solid EVGA construction and engineering, cool running, low profile, small heatsink. Passive cooling quietness. Latest geforce drivers compatible. Inexpensive.

Cons: Some dropped frames with GTA5 .....nah just kidding. Seriously, no cons.

Other Thoughts: Needed an inexpensive passively-cooled card with a small heatsink for an HTPC. On the G45M board, the single PCI--E x 1 slot is very close to the x16 slot, making use of the x1 nearly impossible with regular graphics cards installed. The slim heatsink on this model allowed just enough room to run a USB 3.0 add-on card on the old dinosaur mobo. Of course being an EVGA (only graphics cards I buy nowadays) made the choice easy.

XEROX Travel Scanner 150 (XTravel-Scan150) Mobile Scanner

5 out of 5 eggs Good Scanner for Road Warriors 08/22/2015

This review is from: XEROX Travel Scanner 150 (XTravel-Scan150) Mobile Scanner

Pros: 600 dpi res. Lightweight but rugged. Handy carry case. Relatively inexpensive.

Cons: Bloatware on disc - the drivers & apps are outdated so best to just toss it after copying the manual to your hard drive. The doc feeder is not perfect. Xerox includes a couple holders to scan small, thin material like thermal paper receipts. This was a bit of a disappointment since my main intention for buying was cleaning up my expense reports. But the holders work ok and it's still better than mailing in receipts.

Other Thoughts: Download the latest drivers and the One Touch app from the Xerox website. Load the drivers, connect the device when prompted, then run the One Touch installer. Configuring one touch was simple by selecting the "auto document" mode. If you need a pdx converter I suggest finding a free one or ponying up for acrobat.

Getting the hang of the doc feeder is pretty quick. As mentioned previously, it's not perfect, so a little dexterity is needed. Overall, money well spent - so far.
