Pros: - Keyboard lighting is good.
Cons: - This keyboard has none of the normal power buttons (sleep, wake, etc.) which is really annoying when using it like I do, with a docked laptop. These keys CANNOT be mapped, even with a mapping utility like KeyTweak.
- Keys feel somewhat "dead" when typing.
Other Thoughts: I re-read through the reviews and there was at least one mention of the power buttons missing, so somewhat my error, but overall, I should have gotten one of the Sidewinders when Newegg had them at 40+ :(... Oh well....READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: My Windows Experience went from 3.8 (HD 5450) to 6.7 with this adapter1
The fan spins up (and is noisy) on boot, but then immediately goes almost silent.
Cons: None, although even on sale, wished that it was less expensive.
Other Thoughts: I know that the WEI isn't suppose to mean much, but it bothered me that my system, which is pretty fully-loaded (intel I7, 48GB of RAM) was showing only 3.8 WEI. Got this on a sale at the Egg, and glad that I did.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OKGEAR OK250AU2S1-K 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure
Pros: - Supports BOTH SATA *AND* IDE 2.5" drives
- Supports eSATA (at SATA I/II speeds) and USB 2.0
- Comes with a small case and 3 cables: eSATA cable, USB to mini-USB and USB to mini-USB "Y" cable
- Switch for selecting eSATA vs. USB 2.0 interface
- Metal enclosure
- Long, reasonably large (not tiny) screws
- Not bad looking
Cons: Description says drive activity light, but doesn't seem to have one. Just the front lights when powered on, but doesn't blink.
Other Thoughts: - Newegg's description didn't mention it, but it looks like this enclosure supports either IDE or SATA I/II drives.
- The screws goes into a part of the extruded enclosure, but if you miss the hole part, they still go in, making you think that they're installed. Make sure you actually screw them in.
