This review is from: C2G 10149 6" 15-pin Serial ATA Male to LP4 Female Power Cable M-F
Pros: I got this little guy to convert from a Molex to a stat connection. My powersupply sadly is missing a lot of the modular power cables, and they are not universal. I have however a string of stat plugs, and I needed a Molex for my laptop x4 3.5 bay. This converter did the trick. Powering 4 drives with no issues.
Cons: Wish is was a little bit cheaper, but it works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Apple Trackpad MC380LL/A
Pros: There are a couple of ways at looking at this device. You could compare it to others in it's class, it outperforms them all, to my knowledge. Close competitors being Lenovo, maybe Microsoft. I feel that Mice and touch surfaces are only worth noting if they hurt you, for the rest it comes down to preference. It's larger than both my 2010 and 2012 macbook touchpads. It performs as good if not better. It's very flush with the table, and I never cramp up from prolonged use. it's high quality. I am not sure about the battery life as I went with the 'mobee' inductive charger and battery pack. This comes out to a pretty penny on an already overpriced piece of hardware. On the Mac this works flawlessly, read-on for the Microsoft review.
Cons: On to the cons, there is only really one, and it's manageable. On the Mac I always enable the tap to click setting. This is nice, because the new version of the apple touchpad has two feet that are on the bottom and act as click buttons. The old one had a center click censor. This makes it impossible to use on a soft surface. On to the Microsoft issues. Drivers for apple devices are written by Apple, so it's not a Microsoft shortcoming for once. http://trackpad.powerplan7.com/ Touchpad++ is a great project that solved most of my issues. It still doesn't work fully with the external touchpad but it made it more usable. There is an accidental click threshold for fixing the accidental clicks and dragging issues. But out of the box with bootcamp drivers this device was pretty limited. But the program, I donated 6$ and got a serial number, great developerREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer Glide 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ60-064G-B35
Pros: It's hard to be completely serious in a review of a USB drive. A lot like reviewing a screwdrivers, in the end of the day, all you care about is, does it do the job. This one does, so I guess it passes that mark. There is a small little blank white-beige pain mark for label, it's small but it lets you add a little note to say this is the usb for an iso, or for work or school. That's nice. The retractable usb allows for secure storage without scuffing up the metal, and you don't need a cap you will loose. More importantly it's not like the 'usb key' I bought at a local corner store. It was supposed to go on a key chain. One day I went to plug it in, and I still had the 'key' part, but the USB had slipped out of the 'permanent' housing and I had complete data loss, as the device had fallen out. This doesn't have that problem.
Cons: As much as what it is meets expectation, it does lack a couple of things. There are micro-SD cards 128GB in size, so a bulky single function USB stick with 64GB is nothing to write home about. Also, it's not USB3, and it's 2014. It's retractable, and doesn't seam flimsy, but I have put very little stress on it, and try to eject every time I unplug. Overall it works, so not much of a con. Perhaps the price is a bit high.
Other Thoughts: Could be faster and cheaper. But it works.READ FULL REVIEW
