This review is from: Insten 675363 USB Sound Card w/ 6 ft Extension Cable
Pros: -Truly 6 feet!
-Quality USB Y-Adapter!
-Great combo for a great price!
-Holds the device in place and doesn't allow it to slip out (meaning, it has a fair amount of grip in the female connector).
-Female to Male connector!
Cons: -Increased power draw (barely, kinda nitpicking here) for the extension cable..
-Slightly slower USB Flash Drive connection (again, barely, nitpicking) for the extension cable. In truth, according to CrystalDisk mark 3.0.3a, it only slowed down my USB 2.0 Flash Drive by 0.2 Mbps, which is tolerable considering that its extra data transfer over 6 feet and its an extra, accessible USB port. Keep in mind, this is when the extension cable is connected to the Motherboard, directly.
Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these back in April of 2013. I figured having more USB Y-Connectors couldn't be bad as spares, but I primarily needed a cheap, good quality extension cable. So, I've been using all 3 extension cables and 1 USB Y-Connector since then.
I use an extension cable to provide an extra USB port for my Mom's computer since her front case only has 2 and they're kind of loose due to being a cheap case. I use 2 extension cables on my Personal Computer - 1 for my Mic/Headset and one for my Webcam/Mic. They each only come with a default 3 foot cable, so I needed an extension for ease-of-comfort with my setup.
I have not had a single hitch or problem with them thus far!

Other Thoughts: I was barely using this, merely to transfer files from this PC to my PS3. It got maybe 2-3 hours of lifetime use before it died.
Now, how it died is very particular. I am extremely picky about how to remove a flash drive (even though it's set to be removed as "Quick Removal"). I make sure to always "Eject" the flash drive, to ensure no corruption. But, the problem is, this flash drive ended up uninserting and reinserting itself, as if the thing was alive! It would do this mid-transfer, mid-format, pretty much mid-everything. It corrupted it beyond repair, except for a few minor times that the format would be successful (has to execute in less than 5 seconds, or else it'll disconnect itself from the computer).
So, yeah, never buy this... ever!
This review is from: Vintaj Special Edition - Metal File #2 Cut - 3" Long 0.40" Wide
Pros: Easy to use. No instructions required. Just like nail filing!
Very sturdy. Thick. Solid piece that's bound to last a while!
Does the job... just a tad too good -- my screw bits were coming out of my magnetic screwdriver because it caught the screw heads too well! But, hey, at least it does the job!
Very cheap! $3.75 with $2.75 shipping -- that's $5.50 for an item that's bound to last you 1-2 years with weekly use!
Cons: Doesn't come with paper instructions or any paper warranty. The only instructions or fine print are on the cardboard box print itself.
Could've had free shipping, but still good price.
It's too rough to be used for my nails, but I'm just nitpicking here!
Other Thoughts: My tech level is "Low" as a result of having very little knowledge of Metal Filers and very little knowledge of hardware equipment, such as, screw bits, screw drivers, etc.
Again, I wish it had free shipping just because of that luxury when ordering items, but I can't complain about such a cheap, yet sturdy product.
Note, one of the cons speaks of a paper warranty, but this does not mean that it does not have a warranty. They offer a 30-day refund or replacement return, with 0.00% stocking fee. See "Return Policies" for more information.
