Pros: Everything worked as expected.
Cons: No issues noted other than this "retail" kit comes with nothing extra. It's just like the bare drive but with better packaging.
Other Thoughts: Used this for a PS3 upgrade (Slim 160GB model). Worked like a charm. No issues whatsoever. Highly recommend.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great
Other Thoughts: Love this PSU. Replaced a stock HP PSU. Went in without a problem. Fired right up. 5 minutes total and the thing has been running like a champ ever since.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HighPoint RocketU 1022A PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Low Profile USB 3.0 HBA Controller Card
Cons: 3 major problems.
1. You need to have a molex power adapter available from your PSU. Fortunately, I had an adapter laying around but I'm guessing a lot of folks get this and don't have a way to power it on.
2. The power connector is flimsy. Just plugging the stupid thing in can easily dislodge the connector from the board. Others mentioned this in their reviews so I know I'm not alone on this.
3. It didn't work. Would not maintain a link to my USB 3.0 dock. Ended up shipping this back.
Other Thoughts: The real crime is HighPoint's tech support. It seriously looks like it was created 10 years ago by a high school kid who cut his teeth building geocities websites. You have an absurd process to create an account. Then they tell you to search through the unorganized forums for support (hundreds of pages with no category breakdowns - searching on this model number yielded 0 matches). Finally, I submitted my question 48 hours ago and have yet to hear anything back other than the autoreplies. Thank goodness this was bought with Shoprunner so shipping back to Newegg was free.READ FULL REVIEW
