TRENDnet TEG-S80G Unmanaged 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch. Limited Life Time Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Version 3 took away features... 08/05/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S80G Unmanaged 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch. Limited Life Time Warranty

Pros: Cheap
8 Gigabit ports
Smaller form factor
Smaller wall-wart

Cons: Took away tabs for shielded cables
Took away "link speed" diagnostic lights

Other Thoughts: I got several of these a few years ago, needed a couple more (to replace one older unit and expand my network more). The model number is the same but they have newer "versions" now. The product information page is no longer accurate reflecting the features that were taken away. The current version lacks the second row of LEDs for link speed diagnostic and also lacks the shielding tabs around the network ports.

5 out of 5 eggs Simple - as it should be. 10/21/2013

This review is from: StarTech 6" 4 Pin Molex to SATA Power Cable Adapter SATAPOWADAP

Pros: Simple

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: What more is there to say? Got 3 of's an adapter, it's simple and works.

StarTech 4 Port PCI Express PCIe SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Controller Card Adapter with SATA Power - Low Profile Model PEXUSB3S4V
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 4 ports
Fits 2U rack mount case (low profile) as well as full desktop tower
Includes both low-profile and full-size PCI slot brackets

Cons: Narrow PCI slots (too close together or too much metal between slots) may require trimming the case slightly

Other Thoughts: Seems to work very well, it gives 4 USB 3.0 ports in a very small form factor at a price comparable to some 2-port cards. As another review said, if your PCI slots are too close together or have metal between them it MAY require slight filing or modification to the case. I was able to make it fit by loosening the screws slightly on this and the PCI cards on either side, then carefully and gently adjusting the USB ports by less than 1/16 inch until they lined up with the PCI slot cutout in my case. Once I plugged in 4 USB cables I re-tightened the PCI slot screws to securely keep everything in the correct position.
