BTC 9116URF BLACK Black 87 Normal Keys 9 Function Keys RF Wireless Mini Wireless Internet Keyboard With Dual Mode Joystick Mouse

Pros: Great wireless keyboard for cheap! perfect size for car-pc. Decent range.

Cons: I personally would like it if the short cut keys were set up for multimedia better. But I'm not gonna complain at this price.

Overall Review: I love this thing. Perfect size and the joystick is great when you have no where for a mouse.

Most Critical Review

Updated drive still has issues...

Corsair Force Series 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F120GB3-BK
Corsair Force Series 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F120GB3-BK

Pros: Fairly fast when used with sata 3 controller although nowhere near reported speeds. I got to about 410 with atto. Of course this is with the crummy marvell controller on my Gig x58a-udr3 2.0 FF board so...

Cons: I suppose I have been luckier than most with no mouse freezing so far but there have been unexplained crashes and one drive loss in the bios which was a pain to get back up. This shouldn't be happening with a fresh install of 7 Ult. x64 on a brand new $200 SSD.

Overall Review: I've been building systems for 15 years. I don't have time to look at pages and pages of support forums. I've set my ram voltage. Only one unexplained crash in the last couple of days when I stepped away from the computer. Seems to involve sleep. I could probably use this on a sata II controller without issues but that's not what I payed for and I'm not going use my system without sleep... New egg will not accept returns and continues to sell this drive with all the well documented issues. So I have a $200 OS SSD drive that is not reliable. Just to note I have another ssd in my system that has performed flawlessly for the last year +. Here's hoping and praying that Corsair gets an update out that actually fixes this soon otherwise we all have a worthless $200 brick... Cheers to all the other pay to test chumps!

Pros: This card is great for the money and the wired antenna is perfect for my needs. Easy to set up and get running.

Cons: None that I can see.

Overall Review: I have this on my car-pc. My box is in the trunk with the antenna routed up to the rear package tray through a speaker hole. I am able to get a pretty good signal from my driveway all the way to the back of my house where my router is. It was perfect for my needs.
