APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Doesn't keep PC on 07/01/2014

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: -Keeps some devices required
-Works as a surge protector

Cons: -Doesn't keep PC or monitor powered on

Other Thoughts: I specifically bought this UPS to prevent my PC from powering off when a power outage occurs. Unfortunately, when a power outage occurs, both my PC and the monitor go off with it, even though I have the USB cable connected to the power supply. At least it keeps my modem on and I can still charge my phone.

Just a heads-up for you readers: The power-loss beep alert must be turned off using the PowerChute software.

Belkin F4U081 USB 3.0 4-Port SuperSpeed Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Works as advertised 07/01/2014

This review is from: Belkin F4U081 USB 3.0 4-Port SuperSpeed Hub

Pros: -Works with USB 1.1
-Power adapter is not required when plugged into computer

Cons: -Connection cable is short
-Connection cable disconnects easily

Other Thoughts: As I was searching for a USB hub to replace the USB port that broke on my computer, I noticed that no other hub matched the feature set of this hub. I also took comfort from that fact that I have had success with Belkin products in the past.

One of my concerns was whether this would take up another socket on my already crowded surge protector. Fortunately, if you're using a PC tower, like I am, the power is provided by the computer, so you don't have to use the adapter.

The second thing I needed was a USB 3 hub that was backwardly compatible with USB 2 and USB 1.1. This is the only hub I found that could do that. I am happy to report that my USB 3 devices perform up to the same speed they did when connected to the PC's USB ports.

One minor gripe is that the cable that connects the hub to the computer can disconnect a little too easily, especially since the cable isn't particularly long. This problem doesn't really happen to me, but someone else who uses my computer accidentally disconnects this cable sometimes.

I recommend this hub if you must support your new and legacy USB devices and you don't want to take up space on your surge protector.

8GB Memory Card for Sony Playstation Vita
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Spacious enough for my needs 11/16/2012

This review is from: 8GB Memory Card for Sony Playstation Vita

Pros: -Can fit several videos
-Can be backed up to PC without having to remove
-Can hold multiple Vita games
-Should hold several average-size PSP games

Cons: -Can become cramped quickly
-Required to use the Vita
-On the expensive side
-Games can't be deleted without being connect to a PC (or at least, I haven't found a way to do this)
-When the Vita is connected to a PC, you can't browse the memory like a drive. (This is a departure from the PSP.)

Other Thoughts: The reason I say it's spacious is because 1) I can backup my games to my PC, 2) Sony allows games to be re-downloaded, and 3) There's Netflix. I basically only need a few games and a few videos on the system at any one time. Of course, I own multiple game systems, so this really isn't a problem for me.

I took down a point because of the way you have to manage the content. It's not as easy as it was on the PSP.
