Pros: I like the look of the case, has a good solid feel, and USB3 is always a plus.
Cons: Case is a real fingerprint magnet.
Other Thoughts: When installing the hard drive be sure to put the protective film in between the circuit board of the hard drive and the case. This film prevents the hard drive circuit board from shorting out against the metal case which would likely destroy the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great in my Acer 1810T. Was easy to install, took me about 5 minutes, and that was being extra careful not to damage anything.
Cons: Comparing this to the original keyboard, I'm pretty sure this is not a genuine Acer part. But I can't really fault them for this because they do not claim it is a genuine Acer part in the description.
Other Thoughts: The 'O' key on my laptop has been slowly dying. When I found this reasonably priced keyboard on newegg I decided to give it a try. Installation was easy, but take it slowly and be careful. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to push back 4 tabs along the top of the keyboard while gently lifting up. Next there are 2 tabs, one on each side about half way down. Once those are free, there is a ribbon cable underneath. Carefully lift up on the black part of the ribbon cable connector. Once that swings up, the cable is free to pull out. Simply reverse the steps with the new keyboard. Be sure and test the keyboard before pushing the keyboard back into place. That way if the ribbon cable needs to be redone you don't have to remove the keyboard again.
The new keyboard has a slightly different feel and sound. It sounds a little louder and feels a little firmer. For all I know, this is what the original keyboard was like when new. And I actually like the increased firmness of the keys.
If your keyboard is acting up, I recommend this item. I only wish I had done it sooner instead of living with a troublesome 'O' key for so many months.
Pros: Works with Raspberry Pi distros out of the box, no need to download drivers or firmware. Also works on the Raspberry Pi B+ without the need for a powered hub.
Cons: My only complaint about this adapter is is adapter housing. The housing is flat and wide. However, the width is the problem. Many computers (Raspberry Pi included) have USB ports close together. The adapter is too wide, it blocks the neighboring port. If it were designed to be long and narrow it wouldn't block neighboring ports. Technically I can use the included USB extension (which is nice), so this is a minor gripe.
Other Thoughts: I specifically bought this adapter because it was listed as working with the Raspberry Pi and because it's N300. Turns out N300 is the downlink speed, the uplink is N150. I was bummed when I realized this, but rereading the newegg description they do mention this, so the fault is my own for not reading closely. That said, I still would have purchased this adapter - I guess I just wish it were N300 both ways.READ FULL REVIEW
