Team C123 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TC123332GW01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Product can't be trusted 05/04/2014

This review is from: Team C123 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TC123332GW01

Pros: OK, when it was working

Cons: Bought one in July 2013 for use with a Mac and another in Sept. 2013 for use with Win 7. In Jan. 2014 the first failed and in April the 2d. In both cases, the main directory was open, and then the folder / drive icon disappeared. The drives are seen and can be ejected, but the OS reports no file system present.

Other Thoughts: I'll go back to Corsair USB sticks

4 out of 5 eggs Works with Win7/8x/ Server 2012 R2 05/02/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCW-608 - USB 2.0 Adapter for IDE / SATA Device, Protective Case Included

Pros: I build "hackintoshes" - Intel CPU/ Gigabyte MB. Most recent MBs no longer have a PATA connector, but the PATA drives can be useful as Time Machine backup storage device. But OS X wantes "to see" SATA drives, so I use this adapter to confirm older PATA drives are useable - I like Samsung- scrounged from HP/Dells. I can then use the SYBA (IDE to SATA) adapter (Newegg N82E16812186078) to make the PATA drive to appear as SATA. So free drive + $11 for the SYBA and I'm "good to go" for backup storage - although admittedly not that fast.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've confirmed that the adapter works with Win7/8x and Server 2012 R2. Also the drive appears as external USB drive in OS X - and with SYBA (IDE to SATA) adapter (Newegg N82E16812186078) as an internal SATA drive.

Rosewill RNX-56USB - Modem - Conexant Hardware-Based 56Kbps USB (Plug & Play) V.92 Data / Fax / TAM – Windows 7 Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Tested this for a relative. Used the Vista x64 driver for Win 7 x64. Modem recognized. Installed the Classic Phone Tools (BVRP folder on CD) and tested the connections to a local dial-up ISP. Also tested sending AT commands in terminal mode. Fax tools OK also

Cons: None, c'mon it's a modem

Other Thoughts: Didn't try the Vista driver with Win 8.1 x64 , but generally I have had success with Vista hardware drivers on Win7, so I'll try it - although there is no really good reason to be using Win 8/8.1 at all - except if one is stuck with it, i.e., new pc.
