This review is from: Rosewill RC-505 - 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Card
Pros: no pros since it did not work
Cons: Not sure if it's defective or incompatible, but I could not get it to work or DELL XPS 8300 Windows 10 build 14393.
Windows simply does not see it at all. No bangs in device manager, nothing. I can see it powers the device. And I got it powered, but no dice. If I had more time I could check if it works under Windows 7, but I don't have time I just need something that works.
Other Thoughts: I tried all possible drivers, apparently from what people seeing it should just show up and Windows 10 starts downloading drivers from windows update for that and the work, not happening in my case. Like I said - I'm not sure if it was defective, but I'll just return it and stay with USB 2 for now, no big deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looking at this thing, it's hard to believe that it's a hard drive. It looks more like a narrow and long SO-DIMM, rather then a hard drive. Speed is OK, about 300MB read, 200-300 write. Perfect fit for OS drive.
Cons: I'd wish it could be in-par with my main Samsung 830 speed-wise, but I guess I'm asking too much :)
Other Thoughts: So my main goal was to enable Windows stripe volume to double the IO on my main two drives. The problem is, that you can't install Windows OS on a stripped Windows volume, and W520 comes without a hardware RAID controller if you ordered it without RAID. So, this small drive came to rescue - now all my OS stuff is on this drive, protected with Bitlocker, and my two super fast Samsung 830 256GB drives are in software RAID, giving me 1000MB/Sec read and 800 write speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 Laptop Memory Model KVR16S11/8
Pros: speedy RAM for cheap. all modules are working just fine.
Cons: none, I guess.
Other Thoughts: I never had any problems with Kingston brand, I got hyper-x SSD from them, now this memory, I remember buying something else from them, it just always delivered.
Now my Hyper-V VMs on my Windows 8 are gonna fly :)
