EVERCOOL HD-AR-B Iron + Plastics Armor HDD Cooling Box
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good product 09/14/2011

This review is from: EVERCOOL HD-AR-B Iron + Plastics Armor HDD Cooling Box

Pros: Easy installation. Should work for 1, 2, or 3 hdds. Front cover opens for easy access to filter for cleaning or replacment without opening case.

Cons: Lack of color choices can make a non-black case look bad.

Other Thoughts: Power connection is 4-pin, but with male/female combo it allows another device to be connected so you don't lose that connection (in case you are short on power connections).

SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 port controller card Model SD-V2-5U
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great price and easy setup 09/13/2011

This review is from: SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 port controller card Model SD-V2-5U

Pros: Easy install. Works exactly as described and expected.

Cons: There was a storm ni NJ that delayed shipment, though not the fault of the card or Newegg, but there aren't any other cons.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned in other reviews, there are only 4 working ports on this card. Use of the internal port will cause one of the external ports to not function. Hopefully 4 USB ports is enough.

Rosewill RC-215 VIA PCI SATA 1.5G x2 / ATA 133 (IDE) x1 Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs The manual is worthless 09/13/2011

This review is from: Rosewill RC-215 VIA PCI SATA 1.5G x2 / ATA 133 (IDE) x1 Controller Card

Pros: It works. Windows recognized the card and installed the driver directly from the CD.

Cons: The manual has many errors. CTRL-Z (not TAB) enters card BIOS.
You probably don't need to copy the drivers to floppy (who has a floppy drive anyways) since the drivers install from the CD.

Rosewill, please rewrite the manual or correct me if I am wrong.

Other Thoughts: I installed this card on an older XP machine as follows:

1. Turned of machine and unplugged.
2. Opened case, inserted card and connected to new hdd, closed case.
3. Started computer.
4. Windows recognized the new device.
5. Inserted driver CD and waited for it to be recognized.
6. Proceeded with Windows device installation and drivers were loaded from CD.
7. Restarted.

It's worth mentioning that I only connected a single hdd to this card (I plan on connecting another in the future). This means there were no options in the card BIOS for configuring a RAID.

Hopefully this saves at least one person from hours of agrivation.
