This review is from: Vantec IDE to SATA Converter - Model CB-IS100
Pros: I wanted to use some of my old IDE drives that I was currently using externally in my computer where I have fans and can keep them cool. I bought 4 of these converters and all of them work just fine now. It came with power cords and sata cord.
Cons: At first the converter didn't work I had them hooked up to a pcie card and my computer would not post. So I then hooked them up straight to the motherboard and my hard drives worked just fine. I then hooked them back up to the pcie card and they work just fine now. The only thing there is a slight pause in accessing my hard drives almost as thought it is taking a while for the operating system to see them. I am running 2 computers with these converters one with windows 7 and one with windows 8 and they both do the same thing so you have to be patient and let windows see the hard drives
Other Thoughts: Not happy with the way my shipment arrived. Who ever the carrier was decided not to knock on my door or ring the bell they just went straight to the office of my building and left it there. No notes nothing I was lucky to have known it was here by checking online anyone could have kept my shipmentREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Nippon Labs HDB-5250 3.5" HDD Plastic Bracket Black Color
Pros: I was worried that this case might not have the right holes where I need them to be but it fit perfect in my case. I have a toolless case, an InWin Dragon case and I was able to put my sliders on this bracket. I used it to put more hard drives in my case it worked for me. For the price which is bit higher than most of the cheaper brackets it was ok and it came with extra screws that I really didn't need but that was nice.
I bought 4 of these brackets and they all are doing what they are supposed to be doing.
Cons: I was only able to screw my hard drives in with 2 screws I guess that made it for dvd or cd roms 2 screws is ok but I kind of like to have my hard drives a bit more secure than that
Other Thoughts: I don't know when but Newegg has changed their carriers since the last time I bought something from here. When you pay to have something shipped to you fast I expect for the shipment to get there on time. Well I really don't know who they used but it was not Fedex or UPS, the carrier never attempted to see if I was home. I live in a apartment building and I have a bell no one rang it all day. I was wondering when my shipment was going to get here it was getting late in the so I went online to track it. It said it had been delivered to the Main Office of my apartment building. There was no notice someone had been to my apartment building or anything. If I had not checked online I would not have known my shipment was here. I was very upset. I guess Newegg is trying to cut cost and go with cheaper carriers my thought is you get what you pay for if you pay cheap you get bad stuff. I thought I was a valued customer I will think twice now before ordering something from NewEgg nowREAD FULL REVIEW
