This review is from: iStarUSA RP-HDD2535 Internal 3.5" Drive Bay Bracket for 2x 2.5" SSDs
Pros: Well built (solid); fit my computer's HD bracket perfectly; excellent price if I get the rebate. The frame is metal, finished well with with no sharp edges. Two spacers included to fit 7mm SSDs. If you have a 9.5 you don't use them. Don't know if it was intentional or not, but one extra mounting screw was included. Sure enough, I dropped a screw on the concrete floor and lost it. Red retention clips worked well and the SSD fit nice and snug. I recommend this bracket.
Cons: Rebate. I am very careful with rebates and follow all requirements carefully. I keep copies of everything just in case. But we all know that sometimes rebates are denied anyway. If I get the rebate, this bracket was an absolute steal, If I don't, I paid eleven bucks for it on sale, and I would buy it again at that price even without a rebate.
Other Thoughts: I used this bracket on an older HP i5 desktop that I cobbed on to for a bench machine in the basement. I replaced a WD 7200 RPM spinning drive with a refurbished Intel 320 SDD at 160GB that I also got on sale at Newegg awhile back. Boot times went from 1 minute 45 seconds to 24 seconds with the SSD. SSD and bracket: forty bucks. Not too shabby.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mini Wireless Keyboard 2.4G with Touchpad Handheld Keyboard for PC Android TV
Pros: Wanted something cheap to work with my MythTV recorder and this does the job.
Cons: None so far. Just hoping it lasts. You never know with such a low price point.
Other Thoughts: The egg had another one for about eight dollars more but they look identical except for the brand name. Save some bucks and buy this one. They both most likely come out of the same factory in China.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Supposedly high quality but not sure how to gauge it.
Cons: All four batteries came only 66% charged.
Other Thoughts: I use a reasonably sophisticated La Crosse Technology charger that shows ma charging. If these batteries come pre-charged and retain 70% of their charge after five years as claimed, then what does a 66% charge tell you? Have they sat on the shelf for that long or were they not completely charged before leaving the factory? I don't think we'll really know how well these batteries perform for quite awhile.READ FULL REVIEW
