Pros: Its affordable
Cons: It died after the first use. I immediately began to transfer about 75 gigs of mp3s onto it. After about 15 gigs it came up with an error. No neither of my two computers will recognize it. I returned it for a refund.
Overall Review: With flash drives this cheap, (or really any flash drive it would seem) its really the luck of the draw. I got a bad one so I gave it a bad review, you might not get a bad one. Yes, it is slow, but its also cheap and it never claimed to be USB 3.0. I know they will replace it under warranty, but I don't want to go through the inconvenience and really they should just make a product that works! I don't want to deal with it WHEN (*not if) the warranty replacement craps out on me as well.
Pros: It works without a dongle which is why I got it. The price isn't bad.
Cons: It is a funny shape. Maybe for someone with really small hands it wouldn't be bad. The joysticks are really close together, and they are really small. They also do not have much motion meaning that they do not cover much distance from one extreme to the other. The controller has a cheap feel in your hands and its kind of slippery.
The other reason why I got it is because it looked like the tips of the joysticks were concave (I can't stand how the normal PS3 controller's joysticks are bowed up, its very counter-intuitive). Well, they look concave but they really aren't..
Overall Review: Leave it to the guests...
Pros: It looks nice...
Cons: After some research, it was my understanding that this will go from hdmi to vga, but not vise versa. Well, it didn't even to that. I needed to hook up my PS3 to my projector. This cable made my amp for my speakers cut power (it has a safety feature that does this) and there was no display on my projector. Bummer.
Overall Review: Maybe someone knows more then me about this and maybe it could work for them.
Pros: The fan died on my 6800 that was in my media pc (converted from an OLD gaming machine) and thus the card overheated. This is a replacement for that, so all I am doing is watching movies and I wanted the cheapest video card possible. It works great for this application, just make sure you install the drivers it comes with (naturally).
Cons: The driver disk it came with did not autorun correctly, it took some digging to find what I needed to install. Not too bad. Also, It is very bulky. The heat sink gets in the way of the next slot below it, rendering that slot useless. This does not effect me, but it is a poor design. Also, the heatsink sticks so far out of the back that it almost got in the way of a smaller fan on my motherboard. It is resting on the corner of the housing on the fan. So it works for me and it is cheap, but depending on your motherboard and if you need the next slot down, it may not work for you.
Overall Review: I guess I bought this in the nick of time seeing as how it is out of stock now. If it ever comes back in stock and you decide to buy it just take warning about how much space it will take up in your rig. At this price, all considering, I would buy it again.
