ASUS VX248H Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The monitor is fine. It works. Looks great. No obvious pixel issues.

Cons: The $20 rebate offered with the monitor is bogus. I submitted all the paperwork required for the rebate and in a few months received a prepaid Mastercard from which was supposed to be worth the $20. When I tried to use it on a $20 purchase it was declined. I checked my account balance on line at and it reported a $20 unspent balance. So I called their help line, and after over a half hour on hold, finally spoke with someone who explained that they add a 20% surcharge to use the card. So the supposed $20 dollar rebate is only, actually valid for $16.66 worth of charges. I consider this to be false advertising. The value of the rebate is actually 16.7% less than promised.

StarTech PEXUSB3S44V 4 Port Quad Bus PCI Express (PCIe) SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter with UASP - SATA/LP4 Power - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It worked fine for 3 days.

Cons: And then after a re-boot it would no longer start. I contacted StarTech technical support, and after waiting over 30 minutes for a technician, I was told that they believed the board was defective & should be returned.

Other Thoughts: I am returning the board through StarTech because they pay for shipping both ways. They estimate that I will have the replacement in 2-3 weeks.

StarTech PEXESAT322I PCI-Express x1 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) 2 Int/2 Ext SATA Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to install and use.

Cons: Only supports 2 drives in any configuration.

You can have 2 eSATA or 2 SATA or 1 eSATA+1 SATA, but despite the fact that each eSATA port can support 2 drives, you can't use them both at the same time for 2 drives each. You can only use both ports the same time for 1 drive each.
