Showing Results: Most Recent USB 3.1 (10Gbps) Adapter Cable for 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: as fast as a direct SATA cable (i can get 166MBps write speed on a 3.0 USB port on my computer)

Cons: Well not really a con, but it has a tiny light that shows transferring in progress... it is dim, bonus. But if you do not light flashing lights it may be a con... flip side, is thst it has a light and if you need to know if it is on that it is a pro.
there may be a small chance (1%?) that the 3.0 version is more compatible, but that observation is only from one incident which I really doubt it is this adaptors problem .

Other Thoughts: Oddly, this one the 3.1gen (USB3 1 2SAT3CB) my ps4PRO will only detect a HDD with the front USB ports, the rear usb port (only a ps4PRO has a rear usb port) does not detect the drive..

BUT The USB3.0 version (USB3 S 2SAT3CB) on the rear ps4PRO usb port, the ps4pro does detect the the HDD on the rear port (although, it was flakely, which is why i bought this new version) My old version works, and i have decided that it is the ps4pro rear port that is the problem... (i prefer to use new equipment, when all things are the same)

(The os4pro specs state that the front USB ports are 3.1 gen1 compatable (gen2 is 10Gbps)... somthat may be why the front ports of the os4pro work "better"... so i just moved my controller charging cable to the back...
i wish i could have used to back port because it is "cleaner" and out of the way, but the slighty flakely nature of it has me using the front ports... (i lost all of my games, due to an issue (i think it is the HDD drive, i have not given up on the drive because it is a 4TB SSHD drive... but if the drive "issues out" i will try another HDD.

this adapter is designed for 2.5 inch (laptop drives), and my use is with 3.5 drives + 12v Sata custom cable to add 12v... this adapter is not the problem... (all my problems start with my 3.5 drive... i have not experienced any with a 2.5 drive)

Too sum up Buy this version, and I trust that this adapter is "bulletproof" and the problem you have with it are not with it, but with your equipment.

4 out of 5 eggs Good for console Gaming... 03/01/2017

This review is from: LG 32MA68HY-P Black 32" Full HD IPS Monitor

Pros: Great color, decent response, has display port... has features that are hidden... such as it will clone a 4k and a 2k5 monitor, but downsampled on screen (the 4k or 2k5 monitor shows the picture and this monitor show a downsampled picture...

Ports stick out from the back, (not sure if good or bad... i think good because it is easier to plug in monitor

Monitor menu is easy to get to. The "joystick" for menu access is easy to use.

Cons: i recieved a monitor with a STUCK green sub-pixel .. (shipping it back was to much trouble, really should have... i'll just complain) the stuck pixel is the green sub-pixel because it seems to disappear (or i do not notice it) when playing games on the ps4pro.
Screen is shiny.
does not like coexisting with a G sync monitor ... had alot of problems, but they were ultimately the display driver... and it seems if theis monitor is a "higher" monitor number does not seem to matter.

has a non-stabdard vesa plate. (200x100)

Other Thoughts: When displaying rate rates higher than 60fps, does not tear... instead looks like the faster frames are synced to 60fps (fraps still shows the correct frame rate... )

monitor light blinks. When in standby.

StarTech 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express SATA Controller Card Model PEXSAT32
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Conditional... Works 02/16/2015

This review is from: StarTech 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express SATA Controller Card Model PEXSAT32

Pros: Gives you additional sata ports...

works in the pcieX1 port of a msi h87-g43csm...

Works in Linux.

Cons: only works in a pcieX1 slot. (In my experience)

Meaning YMMV if you use it in a mini-itx MB.

Other Thoughts: does NOT transfer data in an asus h87i mini-itx pcieX16... But it does get detected and shows hard drives detected.... Because it was installed in a pcieX16 port.

BUT IT DID WORK in a msi h87-g43 pcieX1 slot.

So my advice is only use this card in a PCI E x1 slot.

I gave this card a 4 stars because it does work in the proper slot.. it does work, so i wanted to give it 3-2-1 stars but it does work, so it does not deserve a lower rating.
