StarTech 2 Port PCI Express (PCIe) SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter with UASP - SATA Power Model PEXUSB3S24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Reasonablly priced, and works flawlessly under Linux Mint 17.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Does everything it's supposed to do; no more, no less. Transfer speeds to an external SSD HD are about 95MB/s read and 71MB/s write.

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty nice 01/14/2014

This review is from: Logitech MK520 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black

Pros: It's natively recognized as a USB keyboard and mouse, so I can use it to make changes to the BIOS of the Dell Precision T5500 that I'm using as a media PC.

Cons: Not the greatest keyboard "feel," at least for my tastes - not real crisp. No big deal, since I'm not writing my memoirs on the computer that it's hooked up to.

Other Thoughts: I didn't try installing a driver to make use of the "extra" bells and whistles, so I can't comment on whether or not they work. Works fine with several Debian- and Ubuntu-based Linux distros I've tried it with.

EnGenius ECB350 N300 High Power (29 dBm) Wireless Gigabit Access Point/CB/WDS/Repeater with Network Management Software
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Light. Easy to throw. Probably OK as a straight-forward AP, but I bought it for its more advanced capabilities and they're not available or usable.

Cons: Won't do most of what it claims it will. Tried to configure it to use a static IP, which works. The tried changing the operation mode to AP router, which resulted in a totally unresponsive web GUI. Did a hardware reset and started over...same result. It's going back.

Other Thoughts: The manufacturers of SOHO network gear just don't understand that usability matters.
