This review is from: Koutech Add-On Card Model IO-PEP110
Pros: Trivially easy install, works perfectly.
Other Thoughts: Needed to add a parallel port to my Z77 board for an old-dog HP LaserJet 2100. Installed card, installed driver from CD (Windows 7 did not pick it up)...plugged in print, Windows 7 installed PCL 6 driver and voila! Cheap printing again.
Previously had used a USB/cabled converter that failed after a year out of the blue. This is a much better solution...
Pros: Worked fine for a while
Cons: Is now kaput. also came with bent/unusable threaded standoff but nothing to complain about at the time.
Other Thoughts: Worked for just about 50 weeks and then quit. Printer is fine...on another machine with parallel port, Win 7 picked up and loaded driver for my HP LaserJet 2100.
Zero eggs for short life. now ill buy a PCI card for this old-dog printer.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: It works. Replaced an OS/program HDD.
Cons: Customer support is dysfunctional.
The "Magician" 4.0 SSD management software installed but within a day, would not start/run. Uninstall/reinstall did not help.
Phone support in unreachable. Email support is too messed up to waste the time describing. Voice of the Customer" email feedback asked a bunch of questions with no reply- to link save the support email which is a huge waste of time (e.g., the 840 series is not listed in the *lengthy*-form email pulldown). This is the worst support experience for any product ever.
Win 7 Pro 64 bit, SP1
Z77 Gigabyte mobo
Other Thoughts: I will hope that Win 7 maintains the drive. If it breaks, I'll buy a Crucial drive. Ridiculous Samsung/Newegg spends so much on marketing these drives but in the end, post-sales support is just plain bad and inspires zero confidence in future purchases or attempts to contact. Frankly, I would like to return it but next time I'll have to read the return policy more closely...it can be returned for replacement only.READ FULL REVIEW
