Pros: I have an old phone that I use to test service at the NID. The plug was broken. The other end of the phone cord wasn't modular, so I needed one of these to keep my test phone working. They don't seem to carry these plugs at the chain hardware stores anymore, so I got these. Worked great the first time.
Cons: No cons observed.
Overall Review: Works great.
Pros: This cable works great for video. I haven't tried the Ethernet capability of this cable.
Cons: None observed.
Overall Review: I'd buy it again if I needed it.
Pros: OEM battery works in the HP laptop perfectly.
Pros: Good sound quality. Works great on Ubuntu Linux 16.04.
Cons: None encountered so far.
Overall Review: I'm thinking about getting another one for another computer setup.
Pros: I bought these for use in an external USB 3.1 M.2 drive chassis. They seem to work well in that configuration and don't get too hot.
Overall Review: I would buy this again, and would recommend it.
Pros: It was easy to install the SSD into the enclosure, secure the SSD therein, and close the enclosure. Mine even came with some inexpensive screwdrivers (and screws) to attach the SSD and lid to the rest of the chassis.
It's nice having an option to lock the drive, but I haven't tried that out yet.
I like it's compact form factor. It's just a little larger than the SSD I purchased to go in it.
Cons: I bought a pair of these. On one of these, one of the screws that secures the case lid to the chassis did not seat all the way down into the coutersink. The other case didn't have this problem. For my application, this wasn't a big deal.
Overall Review: Good little enclosure for an M.2 SATA SSD.
Pros: Bought this for the SED feature for use in my laptops. It's very easy to use, just set the HDD password on installation.
Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this SSD, and bought another one after my experience with the first. Probably will buy another one in the M.2 form factor as well. There was a review for the 1 TB drive saying that Linux would not work with these drives. That has not been my experience. I have two laptops that are dual boot Windows/Linux laptops (both Lenovo Thinkpads). I just used Clonezilla to copy my existing drives, and gparted to resize the partitions. IIRC, I reinstalled Linux just to get rid of the LVM crypto partitions that I no longer needed.
Pros: I got my refund in full very quickly and didn't have to send the "coupler" back.
Cons: I ordered two of these "couplers". I only received one loose in a mailing envelope with no other internal packaging. The "coupler" received did not match the photo on Newegg. The HDMI logo on both sides of the "coupler" seems punched or gouged out by a mechanical punch or something similar, obscuring the logo. I tried playing back video through it, and it had noticeable lines and other video problems. Combined with the missing "coupler" which I paid for but didn't receive, I asked for a return.
Pros: Seems to work well. The adapter arrived in a tamper-evident ziplock type bag inside its delivery envelope. I would say it looks identical to the current pictures for this item on Newegg.
I was going to test both the mini and micro sides this past weekend, but was unable to test the mini. The micro side I attached to a HD capable digital camera. I got good audio and video from it, at least as good as a micro-HDMI/HDMI cable and HDMI coupler, which was as good as I was expecting.
I don't have other gear that supports the other features claimed (Ethernet, UHDMI) or I would have tried them.
Has a solid feel to it, kind of a rubbery texture than hard plastic.
Cons: None at this time.
Pros: These have worked out really well for me so far. I've used them on a Linux desktop and an older Windows laptop. I haven't tested them at the rated range but within 2m or so it seems OK. Seems to work out well with all the devices I've tried so far (phones, input devices).
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Works great with Linux. I used it to play a softsynth from a MIDI keyboard. Haven't tried playing the MIDI keyboard from a Linux based sequencer.
Has a well built feel for plastic. Ample connector length on both ends coming out of the interface "egg".
Overall Review: Shipped within a week with standard shipping.
Pros: Seems to work OK. Paired up OK for two different phones and two different computers. The unit I received also did not have the "old school" Russian font on the keycaps, but had a Russian font which matched the English letters. Also absent was the "Windows" logo on the command key. They seem to be catering to the Mac OS X crowd now.
Cons: The keyboard layout on the unit I received was not as pictured. The layout pictured is the Windows layout. They now use the Mac Russian layout for keys. The key for 'Ё' is the key with the '\', not the key with '`', which is the standard Windows layout. So if you're on Windows, you might need to create or get a .kcl file for this layout for Russian. For US English it's the "US International" layout or something like that.
Overall Review: Took a little over 2 weeks to get to me on standard shipping.
Pros: Inexpensive. Compact size.Linux compatible. Easy to use.
Cons: Poor connection at a distance from WAP.
Overall Review: I've bought several wireless clients from TP-LINK and was impressed by their quality. After I crushed a nano-USB Wifi adapter, I decided to try this because it looked sturdier. It seems to be built OK. However, I don't get very good reception with it. In the room where the WAP is reception is fine, but not strong. I was kind of expecting that due to the form factor. Where I was hoping to use it (20-30 ft away through a wall), the reception is poor to non-functional. This was the same application that I had for the broken nano-USB.
