StarTech USB3S2SAT3CB USB 3.0 to 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable w/ UASP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very fast adapter. Faster than the thunderbolt adapter i purchased for $115. I tested the same SATA III drive in both adapters and this is what i got,

Thunderbolt: Write: 320 Read: 360

Startech Adapter: Write 360 Read: 410

Programs load like lightning. Cant beat the price.

Another pro is that is has an led hard drive activity light, its dimmed so its not obnoxious. This could possibly be the best $15 ive ever spent.

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: Late 2012 iMac 27"
i5 (3.2GHZ)
24 GB Ram
Graphics: Nvidia 675MX

Leone Tabletop Fountain WORLDWIDE SOURCING Fountains Y95269 034613952692

5 out of 5 eggs Puts me right to sleep 04/23/2014

This review is from: Leone Tabletop Fountain WORLDWIDE SOURCING Fountains Y95269 034613952692

Pros: Got this because i had trouble falling asleep at night. They say the sound of moving water is good for trying to fall asleep. I like how its not girly looking as most fountains tend to be. Didnt want to get one of those white noise things because they probably chew up more juice whereas the small pump/ motor would have to consume less energy im guessing. I felt this was a significant factor since this needs to be left on all night.

Cons: Pump was loud at first but i think it just needed to be worked in a little. Now its very quiet. It also may not have had enough water in it. Wish there was a way to turn off led and not ruin components but im getting used to having a night light on now. Also wish there was a switch on the fountain itself, i hooked it up to a power strip and just use the switch on that to turn it off and on.

Other Thoughts: Fountain is very light and it serves its main purpose very well. Connecting the wires and getting it all setup was a breeze as well.

SYBA SI-PEX40063 PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Double the speeds of Sata II. Benchmarked two SSDs. One an OCZ 60 gb soild 3 and one Intel 80 GB Sata III. Saw 540 read and 510 write on the Intel and on the OCZ 530 Read and 480 write. This card is 100% plug and play, my bios recognized it immediately and so did windows. No need to install any drivers whatsoever. Windows loads faster and games load faster.

Cons: Have no need for the esata in the back, i think i paid double the price to get esata which i may never use. There are cards that dont offer any esata that are half the price made by the same company.

Other Thoughts: When in bios where it says marvel driver and it gives all the info of the HDDs it also only says 5GB/s as oppose to 6GB/s. As long as im getting the rated speeds for the SSDs i dont really care. I put this into a still very functional X-58 motherboard in a PCI-E X16 slot.
