HighPoint RocketU 1022A PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Low Profile USB 3.0 HBA Controller Card

1 out of 5 eggs Worst hardware i have ever bought, ever. 10/31/2013

This review is from: HighPoint RocketU 1022A PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Low Profile USB 3.0 HBA Controller Card

Pros: super cheap after rebate (4 bucks)

Cons: THIS WILL CAUSE YOUR COMPUTER TO REBOOT. Addtionally i was only getting 6 megabytes pers a second transfers at the best case scenario, sometimes it would transfer at 20mbps but only for 2-3 seconds and then it would drop to almost usbe 2.0 speed. This card is a piece of junk, il never buy the "first from asia" products ever again. Even for the cost (about the cost of a micky d happy meal) it wasnt worth it. Even if they paid me to take this i wouldnt install it. The USB ports are to close to each other. It also seemed to have some issues with hibernation (but this is unconfirmed). I started noticing after a few weeks that when ever i touched my a cord that was attached to my gpu which was right next to the usb the computer rebooted (BSOD). Then i unplugged a hotswappable device out of the usb 3.0 slot and it rebooted the computer. It rebooted my computer twice a day only when i touched the component for 2 days in a row. I then removed the usb 3.0 card and the computer hasnt rebooted for 3 days since (this was the only variable). it doesn't give you the speed it promises and it reboots your computer, STAY AWAY.

Other Thoughts: IF YOU HAVE ONE BURN IT.

SAMSUNG B30 Series S24B30BL Matte Black 23.6

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: for about 30%off you cant say no, great screen size so i bought 2, this was a big upgrade over my dual 19" samsungs, better color.

Cons: - the screen can appear somewhat dark even on the highest setting (might bother you if your a hardcore gamer), no hdmi or usb ports (doesnt bother me personally at all, it already has dvi-d)
- doesn't come with a dvi-d cable so make sure to buy one.
