This review is from: Insten 1068225 1X Micro USB OTG to USB 2.0 Adapter
Pros: Works as advertised on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Tested with a keyboard, mouse, also a keyboard/touch combo, and with a NTFS formatted flash drive.
This little guy has already been a lifesaver, being able to download a wireless driver for a PC that had no wireless access and not another PC around... Saved me more than an hour of headache, only had for 2 weeks.
Cons: None that I can think of so far. Most of what would keep you from using this is in your phones OS, not the dongle.
Other Thoughts: I'm using this on my Gnex with Cyanogen 11 (Kit Kat) nightlies as of 1/6. I was never able to get any of these working on Jelly Bean or previous as support wasn't built into the kernel.
My boss was able to get a keyboard and mouse running on his stock S3, but it threatened to format my NTFS drive. I'm guessing stock roms only support Fat32.
This review is from: Kingston SMS200S3/60G 60GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: I'm sure it's fast on a compatible platform.
Cons: So yeah, Newegg caught me with my pants down this time. Do a little extra foot work, this SSD is NOT compatible with any Mini PCIe slot, even though it fits physically.
Check your specific Motherboard/Laptop for compatibility with the mSATA spec, and specifically Intel's iteration of mSATA.
Other Thoughts: I can tell you it doesn't work on these boards.
And ECS's website is not conclusive on this board, FAQ says it's compatible (somewhat says) but doesn't mention it on the board's spec page.
Let's just say, If you are not 100% sure it says it's compatible, it's most likely not compatible, and Newegg doesn't refund for this product.
This review is from: SPARKLE PCI Series 700040 GeForce 210 512MB 64-Bit PCI Video Card
Pros: PCI card with a somewhat modern GPU that's actually available.
Gave one egg just for that.
Cons: Worked sometimes, but horribly. Between BSODs, it would show the screen with tons of artifacts, garbled graphics, or sometimes just nothing at all.
Other Thoughts: Not for lack of trying, initially bought to use side-by-side with a PCIe G210 so I could add a third monitor on my 6 core AMD machine. I pulled the card and tried on another motherboard (intel, fresh win7 install) and the card exhibited the same issues, when I actually got it to run. Downloaded newest drivers from nVidia. For now, I'm just gonna try my luck with using the PCIe G210 and the IGP side by side.READ FULL REVIEW
