Most Favorable Review

Just what I needed!

Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK
Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK

Pros: Dropped a 2.5" 320GB Seagate in it. Worked just fine.

Cons: None.

Works on Fedora 13!

Pros: Very small and portable - Wireless N

Cons: None at this time.

Overall Review: I installed Fedora 13 on an old Compaq 2800T which did not have wireless. The Linux drivers on the included disk would not compile. I downloaded the latest Linux drivers from Realtek's website and voila!

Awesome!

ASUS Laptop A7 Series A7K-X2 AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 (1.90GHz) 2GB Memory 160GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 17.0" Windows Vista Home Premium
ASUS Laptop A7 Series A7K-X2 AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 (1.90GHz) 2GB Memory 160GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 17.0" Windows Vista Home Premium

Pros: 1. Price 2. 17" Screen - Beautiful 3. 256M Dedicated Graphics 4. Free mouse and carrying bag. 5. Solid construction. Feels much more expensive! You are not going to find a better sub $1000 budget gaming laptop!

Cons: Even though I rated this at 5 stars I still have a gripe! This was for a TL-58. The box is labeled TL-58 (1.9GHz) but the processor is indeed a TL-56(1.8GHz). Disappointing since this item is supposed to be a TL-58. Not sure who to blame for that.

Overall Review: The other stick of ram is indeed under the keyboard. The shape of it will not allow it to fit most backpacks. Most pockets measure only 11" across. The pocket that holds this laptop should measure at least 12" across or stretch. Hardly any bloatware. I removed Norton and MS Office as they were both trials. No issues with Vista and no desire to switch to XP.

I love this thing!!!

Pros: Cheap. Supports multiple memory cards while bring all of my rear panel connections to the front.

Cons: Slots could use dust covers.

Overall Review: This device was a piece of cake to install in my XP system. Did not need the driver disk at all. XP recognized every drive and port on reboot!!!

Works in a Presario 2800T!!!

Pros: Cheap!!!

Overall Review: This PC333/2700 memory replaced the PC266/2100 in my Compaq Presario 2800T. Booted right up with no issues whatsoever.
