This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)
Scroll down to see my previous review from 2014-09-20; this is a follow-up to downgrade my vote and warn you that this product is in total failure. More in the Cons section.
Cons: I previously described in some detail my problems with this device (2014-09-20 below). At that time, the device still was partially useful and I kept it in service for that limited use while relying on a different manufacturer's product to perform the tasks this ORICO device failed to do.
In short, previously it did not appear to function as a powered hub. The power adapter made pretty lights on this hub, but it behaved as an unpowered hub.
Now it has failed at even that task.
Previously, I was able to use flash drives and other very low powered USB devices (such as a wireless dongle for my mouse). This limited capacity provided some use as it freed up ports that could be used by devices that did require power.
Over the last couple of months the various ports have begun to fail. Now only three of the seven will support any devices at all.
Summary: this is pure junk. DO NOT BUY.
I want to add that ORICO has been a customer support nightmare. Getting in touch with their people is problematic and took numerous attempts. When finally in contact, I was informed I would have to pay to ship the broken product to them, and they would then evaluate the product and determine if I was eligible for them to send me a replacement.
No. That's not how it works, ORICO.
Further addition: one of my other ORICO devices has also failed in the past month. I had one of their USB 3 external enclosures for a notebook 2.5" HDD. Umm, correction: I have one of them still. It just doesn't work anymore. I was transferring files from an SSD in the enclosure to a Windows PC when it abruptly ceased functioning without warning. Nothing I've done has revived it (different SSDs, HDDs, cables, systems, etc.). There is no visible damage, and it was used very lightly in the ~8 months or so I owned it.
Two of my ORICO devices failed completely under near-zero or very light use in 1 to 8 months. I'm out approximately $40 to ORICO and had to spend another ~$40 to replace those devices. I'm also out about 15 hours of my personal time (if not ~20 hours) trying to trouble-shoot the devices and dealing with the ORICO "customer support" run-around.
And they want me to pay more money on their bad products.
No, ORICO. That is NOT how it works.
Other Thoughts: It works like this, ORICO:
I won't buy another ORICO product again. I'm cutting my losses and throwing these devices into a landfill. You have stolen my money and over two full working days of my personal time.
You get nothing else form me. Ever.
This review is from: CRYORIG XT140 140mm Slim Profile PWM System Fan
Cons: DO NO NOT BUY THIS PRODU
Other Thoughts: I typed up a detailed review. It is now one egg, because I cannot give a zero or negative. It had detailed review with cogent details included. Newegg informs me that some word in that review is somehow "offensive," and therefore my attempt at a post is "unacceptable," I can't figure out which word. Newegg will not tell me which one is so offensive. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. The manufacturer and the seller both provide "information" that is not "reality-based." It seems I cannot use the "L" word, but the "information" (hah-ha) does not seem to be "accurate." The specifications do not meet any reasonable standards of "truth." Comments that point these "facts" out are censored by newegg. That is all.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: seems to be a good, basic system on the surface
Cons: Nearly every key specification is missing from the description.
The refurb company does not have the system on their website.
Dell has all technical specifications hidden behind a requirement that you MUST enter a service tag to find out the configuration.
On sale, seems slightly over-priced, but it may be vastly over-priced if the systems specs are crippled. No way to evaluate.
Links from description do not, in fact, take you to the product page at Dell. You are dumped at a generic front page and have to search by model number, which does not give you access to actual system technical specifications.
Other Thoughts: What type & speed RAM? DDR2 or DDR3?
How many slots? (seems only two from VERY POOR photo)
Max. RAM capacity? 4 GB? 8 GB? 16 GB? WHAT ??
PSU specification. From VERY POOR photo, seems no free connections? How many watts? Would want to add a video card & this is necessary info.
What PCIe slots? Is that a full 16x slot?
What about CPU? Exact model? What will the mobo support, since I'd want to upgrade that. 3 GHz is anemic for C2D trying to run Win7. This seems more targeted toward running WinXP at reasonable performance, or Win7 barely so that it can claim it "runs" Win7.
Seriously, guys. It was very frustrating time wasted trying to determine if this can actually run Win7 without being completely crippled, or if maybe it might make a good linux box.
If you want to sell old junk to enthusiasts willing to upgrade & tweak it, LIST ALL THE FULL SPECIFICATIONS, LINK DIRECTLY TO THEM, PROVIDE THE FULL TECH MANUAL IN *.pdf FORMAT.
You lost a sale today because you are behaving like a scam artist rather than a reputable tech outlet.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
