UNU Black 14000 mAh Enerpak Extreme Dual USB 2.1A Universal Battery Pack for Smartphones and Tablets UNU-EP-02-14000BS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Simple
Sleek looking
Bright power-remaining lights
Flashlight capability.
A 2.1 amp port for fast charging of tablets.
Dual ports, so two devices can be charged at the same time.
Fairly light weight (12 ounces?).
Comes with a USB cable.
1400mAh, which is enough for 6 cell charges or two fully dead tablet charges.
Relatively fast recharge of the battery. It took under 3 hours.
Flashlight is only triggered when button is depressed for about 4 seconds. That minimizes accidental turn-Ons while it's bouncing around in my pack.

Cons: Flashlight isn't bright (but it's not intended to be... it just aids in connecting wires in the dark, so it's not really a negative.
It's not water resistant (but what battery extender is??).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this battery extended for a trip to remote areas of Central America. I'm a freelance project manager and needed the power for my tablet (just incase). No one seemed to mention its size and weight. So, here it is: 5"x3"x1" and I'd guess it's about 11 ounces. I'm putting it in my backpack and didn't find it's weight objectionable. It has a solid feel to it (not frail and nothing juts-out).

Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA  Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)

3 out of 5 eggs Only transfers at USB 1.0 08/20/2008

This review is from: Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)

Pros: Transparent to OS, meaning it runs fine, no setup issues.

Cons: Only transfers at USB 1.0 rates (which is half the speed of USB2).

Other Thoughts: It's a well designed adapter. Just stick the pin-side into your IDE hard drive. Then plug the USB cable and power into the exposed side of the card. No settings. Nothing to tinker with. Windows XP ran it immediately. But, I found it relatively slow to transfer large files onto the drive, since the card runs at USB version 1.0, which is half the speed of my 3gb/sec hard drive.

ASUS A8N-SLI 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs A8N-SLI requires NEW BOIS CHIP 03/18/2006

This review is from: ASUS A8N-SLI 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: ASUS has a reputation of highend, high quality boards. Their Tech Support was quite good, in that I was able to talk with a Tech TWICE without ever waiting more than 10 minutes on the phone.

Cons: The board's BIOS that ships with the A8N-SLI (version UAYZ, which is the non-premium board version) will NOT work with the latest AMD 939 processors (I bought the Item# 19-103-535 CPU AMD|ATHLON 64 3200). The board simply won't POST. You must call ASUS and they'll send you a REPLACEMENT BIOS chip!!! This of course means you'll be DOA for a week after getting your new board.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg should alert everyone about this issue within the main text of this board's description. It's a heartbreak to waste 10 hours tracking down why the board won't POST. Only to learn it's a known issue that requires a replacement chip!!!
