This review is from: LOGISYS Computer PS480E12 480W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Cheap, 2 SATA connectors
Cons: Lasted 15 months, While it does have 2 SATA connectors, they are on the same wires coming out of the case and are only 6 inches apart. Your SATA devices have to be mounted next to each other or you are going to need a Molex to SATA adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced atom 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDAM16GB
Pros: My interest in buying was as a low profile flash drive to use as a ReadyBoost drive in Win7. I intended to plug it in and leave it in a USB port in the rear of the computer and I didn't want a device that would stick out significantly (2 1/2' or more) like the majority of flash drives or block adjacent ports. The drive sticks out 5/16" installed and is only slightly taller/wider than the USB socket on the MB. It would have been acceptable to me if it stuck out more . This is slightly less in length than the USB buds I have used for wireless keyboards/mouse. If you reformat it from FAT32 to NTFS, Win7 will use all but 100 mb.
Cons: There are holes for a clip or lanyard (not provided) so you have problems with it slipping out of your fingers or pocket, but really this is too SMALL to use for regular insertion and removal data storage & transfer.
Other Thoughts: NewEgg has more than a thousand flash drives in their catalog, Most are designed with the expectation they will be plugged in a computer for a short time, removed, and put in a pocket or placed on a desktop. As such, a size slightly smaller than a thumb makes them easy to handle. And there are a lot of questionable novelty types However few drives are low profile like this. They aren't convenient for frequent insert & removal and they are quite easy to lose when removed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fits very snug because it is specifically designed for a Nook Color or Tablet. The price is no more expensive than generic 7" covers/cases that don't fit well. It looks very smart when closed.
Cons: This is actually the 2nd one of these I have purchased. In the comment I made when I purchased the 1st one, I noted the possibility that the stitching may not last, but that did not turn out to be a problem. What happened is the material that formed the hinges wore and cracked, revealing the woven material that reinforces the joint material. I expected this reinforcing would tear shortly, so I decided to buy an exact replacement.
The prop works only in a portrait orientation so things get awkward if you are watching video in landscape orientation.
Other Thoughts: The problem with the hinge material caused me to take 1 egg off the rating. Good fit, good price. A few colors other than black are offered but did not interest me.READ FULL REVIEW
