This review is from: StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-directional adapter converts IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE
Pros: I use these adapters for two IDE harddrives on a SATA III motherboard. These adapters were very easy to install following simple directions and were recognized on first boot up with no further configuration or fiddling necessary. Both adapters have been 100% trouble free since I installed them almost a year ago. These adapters cost a lot less than two new SATA harddrives would have.
Cons: Not really a con but an unknown -- I can't say how they may or may not work in SATA harddrive on IDE motherboard configuration
Other Thoughts: I am using these adapters with three different 64bit Linux OSes: Debian 7.3, Ubuntu 12.04.3 and Mint 16.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADESSO AKB-110B 87 Normal Keys Mini EasyTouch Keyboard
Pros: It's 11" wide and relatively thin and inexpensive as keyboards go.
Cons: The key layout has some big differences from a standard keyboard. Response to force of key presses is inconsistent -- some keys require harder presses to activate and some other keys double activate with moderate presses.
Other Thoughts: I do a fair amount of typing and some of it fairly fast so due to the cons of the AKB-110B my productivity suffered. I am much more productive with a 14.1" tenkeyless keyboard and happier even though it was over 4x the price.READ FULL REVIEW
