This review is from: VANTEC HDA-250M 2.5" to 3.5" Mounting Kit
Pros: Made of metal with textured finish., not junky sheet metal with sharp edges. Kit includes small screws to mount your SSD to the plate.
Cons: The side mounting holes (3-per-side) are tapped with metric-sized threads. The kit includes screws with the proper size/threads but I use mounting rails from Dell that have special length screws that are 6-32 threaded. Fortunately the size of the holes are just about the same size as 6-32. I was able to use a 6-32 tap to modify the threads to accommodate the mounting rails I use.
Other Thoughts: I had a tapping tool to modify my project and make it useful. If I was the average computer owner/builder expecting to mount an SSD and get it into a computer I would be plenty ticked when I discovered that the mounting holes were not usable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Exact match with the Samsung RAM I have in two systems, so no weirdness with "technically the same" memory trying to co-exist in the same CPU.
Cons: No Cons on the merchandise.. See other Thoughts
Other Thoughts: Free shipping but the combination DHL and USPS handling and the package did not arrive for 3-business days. The distance from warehouse and destination is 30-miles, both in the Los Angeles area. If Newegg offered USPS Priority mail for the small things like memory I would take that and pay for it and I would have had the memory the next business day. For small packages going cross-county, Priority Mail is more economical that the FedEx/UPS ground method and much quicker. For example, I have ordered small items from east coast vendors on Friday, ship via Priority Mail, and receive in Los Angeles area on Monday.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech 5 Port PCI Express USB 2.0 Adapter Card
Pros: This is the third StarTech PCIe-USB2 card I have purchased. I like the internal USB port, used for a Bluetooth mini-adapter. Windows Vista automatically detected the card and installed drivers. Can always use 4 more external USB ports.
Cons: Pricey. Why are PCI versions of a USB expansion card like this cheaper?
Other Thoughts: Don't know why years after the introduction of PCIe slots, it seems little is available for the lowly PCIe-x1 slot. Yet there it sits on the lower edge of almost every motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
