VANTEC 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCIe Host Card w/ Internal 20-Pin Connector Model UGT-PC345

5 out of 5 eggs Great upgrade for an older computer. 02/22/2016

This review is from: VANTEC 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCIe Host Card w/ Internal 20-Pin Connector Model UGT-PC345

Pros: Works great, throughput was great.

Cons: Driver when installed only recognizes the originally installed slot. When I moved it to another slot I had to reinstall the driver. A plug and play issue of sorts. I didn't take off an egg for this. But figured I would include it to help out someone who might experience the same issue.

Other Thoughts: Got two to upgrade two older machines, both worked great.

TP-Link TG-3468 Network Adapter 10/100/1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought two of these both worked great.
Connected this to a 2 pair only (half-ethernet cable) and got a clean 100Mbs connection... which shocked me.
Solid 1Gbs connection on a full cable. Very clean.
Price was good.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought two, thrilled with both. Recommend this especially for those who wish to upgrade an older computer.

Lenovo Flex 3 2-in-1 Convertible laptop Intel Core i5-6200U (2.30 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 15.6

Pros: Flip screen "Convertible" concept is a good idea if executed effectively.
The touch pad actually has a push to click which I find much better than double taping.

Cons: Extremely slow, horribly slow, even after a one touch restore with no other programs.
Takes forever to boot.
Intel Graphics Math Error, resolving this with Lenova is like trying to get through an episode of Zelda without the accompanying entertainment factor.
Support said it was a driver problem, had me to a one-touch recovery. Which doesn't fix the problem. Go to the Lenova site to perhaps find a newer driver. Log in, have it detect my device, which requires you download a program and it offers me two drivers!! Really, so what good was installing the Detection program? You would think it wouldn't get worse but sure enough the driver faults during install. Says there is a manufacturers driver installed. Again, Really!! This is the Lenova site... just amazing how many levels of "fail" this one issue gets.
The partition system and drive are an absolute mess, although you would suspect the graphics math error for slowness of the computer I can tell this is really a hard drive and structure issue. And I am now resolved in my mind that I have lost my money on this. I may eventually put a real SSD with an OEM version of Windows 10. I will loose the warranty which at this point is useless anyway. Just hope I am not throwing more good money at bad. In the short term it is likely this computer will sit for awhile. Very disappointed.
Windows 10 has issues, I am not confusing those issues with the above.

Other Thoughts: Would have been better throwing this money into the trash. At least I wouldn't feel so cheated while I work from my old XP laptop with bad pixels because it runs so much better.
I have used several Lenova products without issue, I like their desktop computers so I am not trashing them as a whole. But I also hear a steady drumbeat on how bad these Flex Convertibles are and I hope I can save someone else the pain. Wouldn't even recommend it for facebooking.
I do NOT recommend this or any other Flex Convertible.
