Pros: It is SATA. I had no problem at all installing it. It works for what I bought it for. To play old games that were being blocked by an internal program on replaced DVD Drive.
Cons: No cons with this unit. I 'thought' there was a con, because it registers only 1.5MB Cache. But, 'uh duh', after reading the specs, it is not a 2.MB Cache as I had thought. 1.5 is going to be fine.
Overall Review: This drive replaces the SONY Drive I bought in 2005. The SONY Drive would not read some of the discs. Anyone recall the "SONY Thing", 2005, when it was found that there was some "discriminating reading" programed in the driver for thier products. Well, they never came up with a new driver to allow programs to run on these drives. I keep this old drive like a "museum piece", with it's "SONY Thing", who knows it too could become a collectable someday. The new PLEXTOR reads all! So I can Load and Play Games such as: CRYSIS, FRONTLINES FUEL OF WAR, JUST CAUSE. The "SONY Thing", had blocked these Games.
In the market for headphones?
Pros: The sound is fair.
Cons: Unadjustable headband. Phone speakers built for adolecent size head, not adults, not mentioned.
Overall Review: I figured since these were built by people who make Sound thier proffesion that some real genuine quality would come from these headphones. Nope. And they are definately not compfortable. In fact, they hurt! The little holes your ears go into are too small and stop blood flow in the lobes,(frost bite like pain occurs), and the hard plastic band is tight! I think Gamer meant Teen to Creative, so the size of head is that target. Here is the sound that comes from me after hours of useing these, 'Ow'!
Pros: Works well.
Cons: On /Off Switch does not work. I worked my way around it. I had some expensive 7.1 Surround sound headset,(which came with a broken part too, mic. I did not use mic), and I use the plug of the HYPERX to plug into. They work alright.
Overall Review: Why do manufacturers make broken products; send them out, and expect you to pay for the returns? --- I really do not want to know and I am not asking for an answer from them. I am sure in the best intrests of their reputation it is not intentional. Costumer always right/Costumers not always right . Aa a business customer I should be giving all praises 5 Eggs and all that bull to be a good business associate and take my real business elsewhere in the future, quietly like. I would not buy these again or HYPERX Cloud again. I wouldn't even buy "fall apart" Turtle Beach Headphones ever again. Since you read this far I changed to 5 Eggs. A Gift of appreciation and a gift of wisdom, ( thank you for reading), :)
Best Keyboard I have bought.
Pros: It is lighted! The sound buttons are - and + buttons and placed in a perfect place above The print button, and, pause button.And are lighted too. The Caps Lock button is lighted and is charged On when the caps are On. Then lightly lighted,dim, when Caps Lock is Off, off. Your finger tips are more directly on the keys when putting your fingers on them. They are like litely rimmed so that your fingers don't miss and you push more directly and centered. No more wondering mind and wandering fingers. Nice!
Cons: It does not have that "Comfort Curve" function that the Microsoft 4000 has. The 4000 is Not lighted! Unless you are concerned with what is known as "trickle charge", the mouse stays On even when computer is Off. There is a Power On/Off switch on back of computer I use. "Trickle Charge" is a vocabulary word used by your Power Company to advise you how to save energy and lower your power bill by switching things off when not in use, Electric clocks, coffee pots, etc..
Overall Review: The mechanical key function of the Space Bar has saved my life in survival games over other keyboard I used through tapping the Space Bar key quickly to response set back. Meaning; this keyboard responds quicker with use, maybe because of it's physical design and shape,?, I just know it works right! Something silly: You drink coffee and it gets on the keyboard. You smoke and the ashes fall on the keyboard. The beer you get on the keyboard from your fingers offer a foul smell, as well as that coffee creamer, later. The ashes turn to mud darkening the way especialy on the non lit keyboard I previously owned. No one has designed anything around this problem. I have the Microsoft Keyboard "Sticky Keys" turned Off,... but it does not mean I still don't have sticky keys .
Pros: The game is better than the others of the series.
Cons: I would enter combat if I could clear the deck of crew. There are no instructions on how you go about making the crew go below deck in order to dive the submarine. I spent hours trying to figure it out. Never did. And the other truth about the five star rating I gave it is because I cared to be kind. Could I design a create a computer game? No. Better than I could do with what I know.
Pros: It is holding 63 Steam games with 1.09 TB Free.
Cons: It only reads 2T by Windows 7. Inaccessible by My Windows 10, so I downgraded. Homework to read up on WHY it read only 2 Terabytes. It has to do with the math of two types of programming for it. The common Number is 32 but your computer reads it out of range at 33. Meaning it Will read 4 Terabytes IF you have 91,000 Terabytes allocated to your computer. 91,000 Terabytes is a "Zetabyte".
Overall Review: "Jaws", by Nintendo NES System rated the worse game ever made by Nintendo. From the Movie JAWS, "We are going to need a bigger boat"! 'You mean the ZETABYTE'! Really? Who has a computer so massive? Server I suppose.
The wallet was on sale for $9.99, from $49.00. There is a plastic card inside that say MFRP $75.00. One look at it and I would not pay over $12.00 for it, because, I work in a water environment and my wallets periodically get ruined. This wallet is not going to last for 2 years, I already know that. The leather is thin as thin as can be. There is a proverb not to allow others to treat anything you have as cheap. So, I am not going to say anything negative about my own property.
Contacted Newegg after over 2 1/2 weeks of waiting for package, Fed Ex had it on tracking for labeling process. It was never processed. fangfang_719 refunded my money, as says in my email box at this moment. It has been -1 day shy of a month since I ordered this and never got it, but get refunded, "within the next 5-7 business days". Will I get my money back? Remains to be seen. For my worse customer experience at Newegg, it gets 5 stars. - And could get a 6th. star if the money is not in fact refunded. \o/ ***** + or - *..
It took almost a week to get a package that weighed about a gram. It came from California to Florida. It seems to me it would take a couple of days or so. The gadget works like it should. I use it for a flash drive operating system start up/back up. It works quick..
