Rosewill RHB-330A USB 3.0 4 Ports Aluminum Hub

1 out of 5 eggs Bummed 05/09/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RHB-330A USB 3.0 4 Ports Aluminum Hub

Pros: Small. Power switch.

Cons: Won't charge Apple devices. It would be nice if included documentation specifies that it doesn't work for them. -5 eggs for mis-representing the product.

Other Thoughts: Stupid apple....they always have to make thing difficult. I got this to run a charging station for my kids' ipad and android tablets. The androids charge fine, ipads? Nope.
It would be a waste of money to return the thing, so I guess I'll keep it in my desk drawer for 5 years thinking maybe I'll be able to use it for something.

Cideko AVK-02-915 Black RF Wireless Mini Keyboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Really works through 2 walls and a floor. Really. I am using my computer in a main level office for an HTPC in my basement living room. I took a chance on the technology and it works great!
Air mouse action took 5 minutes to figure out. Once I learned how, it is really nice.
Build quality top notch.

Cons: Hard to get use to hitting the left mouse button with my left hand!
My version does not have a media key others have mentioned. Not a big deal since Media Center and Netflix don't know how to get along. I simply use an internet browser for everything.
No way to game on this--I have another computer for that purpose but just FYI for anyone who might be wondering.

Other Thoughts: I setup an HTPC back in 2006 when they first started being used. The tech just wasn't good enough to make it work. I had a poorly designed keyboard and wireless mouse combo that was way too bulky to be practical. The CPU tower was way too loud for everyday use and I didn't want to fork out hundreds to silence it. The case didn't fit into the decore of a living room. Windows XP stunk for HTPC use.
Today, tech has evolved to the point where an HTPC is a great option! This device is the H0ly Grail of the HTCP since I don't even have to build a separate box now! My big dollar, super loud, super ventilated gaming rig can be used for movies, DVR, Netflix, etc because it isn't in the same room or even the same floor as my TV room!
Great device, excellent implementation.

GIGABYTE GA-880GMA-UD2H AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of features for cheap board.

Cons: Two main issues:
1. If you install a video card longer than 6-8 inches, it will block most of the SATA ports. I needed three, could only access two after installing a R6950.
2. Unable to activate AHCI in BIOS. All devices couldn't be found. Stuck with IDE.

Other Thoughts: Sent it back for refund.
