New Portable 1080P HDMI to Component Video (YPbPr) Video converter for HDTV Monitor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Does what it should but poor color quality 12/12/2015

This review is from: New Portable 1080P HDMI to Component Video (YPbPr) Video converter for HDTV Monitor

Pros: Converts HDMI to Component with video scaling.

Cons: Scaler selection does not include an "auto" or "source" option, so output is always fixed, this may or may not be what you want.

Color quality is poor. The blacks are washed out and whites too saturated.

4 out of 5 eggs Very nice switch, lowzy web interface 07/04/2012

This review is from: HP ProCurve J9450A#ABA Gigabit Switch

Pros: This is a well made switch. Just the right features and no fans!

Cons: The web interface is horrific! Items are poorly organized, and difficult to find what you are looking for. In addition to this 1810G-24, I also have an older 1800-24G which has a far superior web interface.

Other Thoughts: NOTE: while the interface is awkward, it is not a deal-breaker, still a really nice switch.

ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB994SP-4S Full Metal 4 x 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a well made cage! Metal construction perfectly matches the rackmount chassis.

Fans were easially removed as my chassis has sufficent cooling to draw air through the bay.

Cons: All of these are minor:

Both fans are powered from the same input, would be better to have one fan each input.

The power LEDs are on even if there is no drive present.

The activity LEDs flash on and off at a fixed interval and for a minimum time for any access, would be better if it was an actual activity LED that would stay on solid for constant accesses instead of turning on and off.

Other Thoughts: Watch out for mounting in a custom chassis bay. I was unable to use provided screws as my chassis requires custom screws, but got it working anyway though with only the rear-most screws attached.
