BYTECC USB3-ESATA SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to eSATA 3Gbs Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs A so-so product 07/12/2015

This review is from: BYTECC USB3-ESATA SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to eSATA 3Gbs Adapter

Pros: They are high speed and simple. They function nicely as a bridge between a laptop with USB 3.0 and a drive enclosure with ESATA. I've also configure them directly to a bare drive, they worked very nicely in that instance too.

Cons: While they work well for a variety of things, but they fall short for long sustained operations. I've had these for years, but recently while copying large backups (filesize >200GB) they seem to overheat and crash. They work again when I restart the operation, but it becomes time consuming.

Other Thoughts: I have a handful of these converters and I've used them for the number of things, including a cheap DIY DVR (for several months). For lightweight operations they're great. I can move data at 100MB/sec, but only in bursts. Expecting them to run full throttle for a few hours has failed over and over. I may try cracking one open and attaching a heatsink... If I get to it, and it goes well, I'll post another review explaining it.

nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

4 out of 5 eggs Good but not great 10/14/2012

This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: The case is built of solid steel, with some great thought behind the layout. It looks nice and has room for everything. It can hold 6 HDDs comfortably, and there's adequate cooling for a fairly hefty build.

Cons: Some of the screw holes don't line up just right. Again, it's solid steel, it didn't get bent a little in shipping. It was drilled (by machine) WRONG. I was able to get all my screws in with some coaxing. I had to get each one started then go back and tighten them. Regardless, it should be better than that.

Other Thoughts: A little better attention to detail on the part of the manufacturer would make this case 5 eggs without a doubt.

BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adapter

1 out of 5 eggs WAREHOUSE WORKERS PAY ATTENTION!!! 09/01/2011

This review is from: BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adapter

Pros: It's great little jewel for the price (I think, see below).

Cons: I didn't get what I ordered. The pix on the site show an adapter to plug into one's graphics card, and give them and HDMI port (where one would presumably plug an HDMI cable in). I got an adapter that has the right DVI connection, but the opposite HDMI connection... what the !@#$%?

Other Thoughts: I don't even know how to use this (wrong) adapter. I'd have to have a coupler for one connection or the other, and I don't because I've never needed one before, despite the many crazy things I've done over the years. Newegg, you fail, it's only $7 (with shipping), but it's still my hard earned money, and you're wasting it. I wonder if tiger direct has improved their shipping any in recent years....
