Pros: Was relatively inexpensive at the time of purchase
MLC memory means longer life compared to cheaper TLC
Overall Review: The SSDs price went down significantly in the last 6 months and I could have 2x the storage size if I buy today for the same money.
Pros: High-performance card, easy to use software. Deserves 4 stars with a better cooling and 5 stars if all software features were accessible for no additional cost and for everyone, not only for corporate customers.
Cons: REALLY poor cooling, card gets to 112 degree Celsius in no time in an open PC case. Deserves -2 eggs only for this "super" feature. Some software features (encryption, SSD cache) are expensive, sold separately and only to corporate customers. Newegg blocks some words, so I'm going to call it softly as unfair...
Overall Review: What kind of reliability and performance can you expect from an overheated RAID controller at 112 degrees Celsius and repeated thermal stress? Common, LSI, you can do better than this. The software only measures the temperature once, during start, which is deceptive. Had to install a fan that blows directly on the card, which keeps the temperature below 44 degrees.
Pros: The cheapest USB 3 Flash Drive of this capacity I know of
Cons: REALLY slow when writing small files, especially if used with FAT32 (default). Formatting to NTFS makes is considerably faster on small files.
Overall Review: After trying to copy ~10K of small files into this drive was so unimpressed with the speed (100KB/sec in average) that decided to RMA it. After reformatting it to NTFS copy became ~20 times faster, so I'm keeping the drive.
Pros: Fully adjustable for hand of any size. I have huge hands, tried almost every big mouse and this is the only one that is comfortable to hold and rest all my fingers on it instead of a surface around. The laser died after 18 month of usage and the mouse was promptly replaced by MadCatz customer support.
Cons: Lack of per application config, buttons are too sensitive, had to use a soft material to put under right button to prevent it to click under my finger wait. Expensive.
Pros: 1) Good range
2) Stock firmware is pretty good in places it works
Cons: MAC-based QoS service doesn't work;
DD-WRT firmware makes wireless slower, hangs when trying to add QoS rules, not an option either, at least now;
Overall Review: Customer support sucks, spent 1 hour at level 1 support trying to explain what is QoS and why I think it doesn't work. You explain to a guy what is QoS and he is supposed to help you after that? Frustrating... Spending more than 1 hour is too expensive, its cheaper to buy a WORKING router of a different brand. My Linksys WRT54GL has much better QoS support, but unfortunately it also has a slow WiFi...
