Coboc CL-AD-DP2HD-6-BK DP DisplayPort to HDMI Passive Video Adapter Converter w/5.1 Channel Audio support-black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Simple
-Passes through audio as well as video

Cons: -No cons

Other Thoughts: Found a great deal on Newegg on a small form-factor refurb PC and wanted to use it as a home-theater PC but it only has VGA (ugh) and Display Port. TV of course is only HDMI and this little dohickey works like a dream without any messing with settings on the PC or TV. Was worried about the sound, but it passes 5.1 effortlessly. IT JUST WORKS!

Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B30 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B30V1K)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice appearance
Solid swivel lock

Cons: Write errors

Other Thoughts: Lots of activity in the Windows Event Viewer of NTFS errors and lost data. I've never had a flash drive that gets this hot, too. I was forced to pitch it.

Too bad. It looks nice, and has a very solid swivel lock.

Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast
7mm or 9mm (with stick-on spacer)

Cons: Crucial SSD utility does not exist
There are faster drives (but few in this price range)
No cloning software included

Other Thoughts: This was a great buy. Everything just worked the way as anticipated (I used Acronis Clone Disk function booted from CD and connected the SSD to the PC using a cheap SATA-USB adapter). The hardest part was working with the tiny screws in my laptop. I am getting about 490MB/s reads according to AS SSD Benchmark. My i7 lappie now goes from power-up to all my many startup programs running in 18 seconds. Wow!

I only knocked an egg off since Crucial does not offer a utility to control certain functions (like Secure Erase which returns the drive to its original condition) and monitoring. Hopefully they are working on such a thing.

My drive shipped with MU05 (the latest) firmware. If you have MU03, a downloadable file (for Windows) is available on their web site.
