Pros: I ordered one of these because I like tools and thought it may come in handy someday. I have never had a check engine light come on until this mornng, hooked this unit up and instantly pulled the code. Was able to intelligently speak with the service writer at the dealership about the issue. It's not fancy but it gets the job done.
Cons: The screen is dented a bit, maybe NewEgg is getting the seconds and that's the reason for the great price. Does not affect operation and not worth exchanging.
Cons: Have in an external drive case and I start to hear the fatal Click of Death yesterday. Caught it in time, no data lost but a pain to warranty. First Seagate drive, probably the last.
Pros: Popped this card in my dual boot XP Pro/Vista Ultimate computer, installed right away and completely in both OS. Absolutely no issues, couldn't be happier.
Cons: None yet
Overall Review: It is big, not for smaller cases.
Pros: Quick fix when sound on mb takes a dump.
Cons: If you have a computer with few USB ports you would have to make a choice what to use.
Overall Review: For the $$$ a lot better solution that a PCI card, ones in this same price range don't work.
Cons: As soon as last part of driver installed computer would (without telling it to) reboot unsuccesfully and lock up. Had to do roll-back to restart system. Tried new drivers downloaded from web same result.
Overall Review: Spend a bit more, think I would have learned after purchasing two BestData modems that were also DOA.
