This review is from: Koutech IO-PESA230 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: It was able to add 2 additional hard drives, but with a catch.
Cons: BSOD upon resuming from sleep.
Other Thoughts: It did not meet my expectations. It can barely do the most basic of tasks. I gave the 2 rating only because it technically worked. The drives were recognized and accessible.
I built a home server using a Z77 mini-itx motherboard with only 4 SATA ports. I wanted to add 2 additional hard drives so this seemed like a good deal. I'm not using it for a RAID or trying to boot from it . I have a current (at the time at least) motherboard. I tried the drivers that came with it. I downloaded the newest drivers from the web site. I even tried a clean Windows install. There was no difference in the results. If you purchase this card, I wish you the best of luck.
Pros: The CABLE works fine. The CHARGER works fine. The price isn't too bad.
Cons: They DON'T work together.
Other Thoughts: As separate pieces, they are fine; just don't expect them to work together. I bought this to charge my tablet at work or on the go. EPIC FAIL. When I plugged it in, the battery icon had a red "x" on it. I plugged the cable into the charger that came with the tablet, and it worked fine. I plugged my cell phone charging cable into this charger, and it too worked fine. If it had cost any more, I'd return it. Maybe I should have spent a little more?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech diNovo Mini Black 63 Normal Keys Bluetooth Wireless Mini Keyboard
Pros: Form factor is perfect for living room web browsing and light computing tasks. Works through walls. Works great when the issues aren't present.
Cons: Battery life is less than impressive. Mine dies after approx 2 days of, what I consider to be, moderate use. Every now and then, the pointer goes crazy (goes everywhere except where I tell it, jumps across the screen, etc.). Usually only lasts a few seconds; just enough to be irritating. The biggest problem is with connectivity. I use it to remotely control a PC in the next room. Daily, I have to re-pair the keyboard and receiver.
Other Thoughts: I tried skipping the included blue tooth dongle and using an aftermarket dongle. I thought this cured the pairing problem. It didn't. Not only did it not fix the problem, the sleep resume problems others mentioned, started.
I want to like it more than I do. While none of these issues are fatal flaws; for the price, this shouldn't happen.
