Most Favorable Review

Compatible with my ASUS ROG Strix G15 Gaming Laptop 👍

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 64GB (2 x 32GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model F4-3200C22D-64GRS
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 64GB (2 x 32GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model F4-3200C22D-64GRS

Pros: The Internet gave me wishy-washy vibes when Googling whether or not this RAM was compatible with my laptop. I took the gamble, and thankfully it works! CPU-Z reports both 32gb sticks running @ 3200MHz. 😁

Cons: Now I have to figure out what to do with the 2x 8GB RAM sticks I pulled out. 🤷♂😅

Overall Review: Is 64gb RAM overkill for a laptop? Very likely. (But the price was just about right for me to jump on it. There's gotta be something cool I can do with 64gb RAM. 😜)

Most Critical Review

Compatible, but Misleading Title

For ASRock DESKMINI USB CABLE
For ASRock DESKMINI USB CABLE

Pros: + Fits, albeit I had to plug it into the DeskMini X300W motherboard FIRST before any other header cables because the length (when pinched in the metal grab behind the front panel) was just barely long enough

Cons: - Arrived as just a USB-to-2-port-header cable mounted to a Low Profile PCI slot bracket; so the bracket is basically a waste - Does NOT include flush-mount, black screws - Instead uses ugly round-head silver screws (from the bracket), which stick out and could scratch things - ports are white, which doesn't match the rest of the DeskMini X300W theme

Overall Review: This is NOT the official ASRock DESKMINI USB CABLE. The REAL one has a specific rubber shape, black-colored ports, and [probably includes] flush-mount screws. The unit I received just makes it seem like the seller is trying to liquidate extra stock of LP USB header add-on cards. Will it work? Yes. Is it fugly? Also yes.

Overall Good 👍, BUT Misleading Store Photo 😠

ORICO Waterproof Memory Card Holder Case Anti-static Shockproof TF/SD/CF Cards Storage Protector Cover for Camera CF Cards SD x4 & TF x13 & Card Reader x1
ORICO Waterproof Memory Card Holder Case Anti-static Shockproof TF/SD/CF Cards Storage Protector Cover for Camera CF Cards SD x4 & TF x13 & Card Reader x1

Pros: ✅ holds plenty of MicroSD cards, SD adapter cards, SD cards ✅ compact, durable, watertight ✅ keychain is handy

Cons: ❌ Will NOT FIT "ORICO 6 in 1 Card Reader" (Item# 9SIA1DSB8K4914), even though it looks exactly like the one in the store page photo. The space is TOO THIN for the Card Reader.

Overall Review: ➕Overall good product to organize a bunch of memory cards so you don't lose them ➖Knocked 1 🥚 for not being compatible with one of their other products

3 Strikes. I've lost confidence in this brand.

EDIMAX EW-7811Un 150 Mbps Wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n Nano USB Adapter
EDIMAX EW-7811Un 150 Mbps Wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n Nano USB Adapter

Pros: I've had good luck with PREVIOUS plug-and-play adapters from Edimax. For some reason the two of these I purchased--AND the replacement I received for one of them--ALL failed.

Cons: Bought two of these adapters. Both triggered "USB Malfunction" errors in Windows on different systems. I unplugged one from the usb port and it felt warm for some odd reason. RMA'd one of the two; when I received the replacement, I received the same errors. Tested on different PCs and they all simply would not work.

Overall Review: I will NOT be recommending EDIMAX wireless adapters any longer. All 3 units would not work as intended. I can't believe that I got a 3-in-a-row bad batch of them.

Reliable Workhorse

HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401n (CZ195A) Up to 35 ppm 1200 x 1200 dpi Monochrome Laser Printer
HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401n (CZ195A) Up to 35 ppm 1200 x 1200 dpi Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Easy network configuration (ie. Static IP). Additional bottom tray was simple to add. High-yield cartridge lives up to the name. Much faster responsiveness compared to the machine it replaced. Printing directly on envelopes with the bypass tray is easy. Automatic, smart sleep mode is cool. Carrying handles on the sides!

Cons: Duplex is manual, via the bypass tray, which can be confusing as far as orientation. The additional tray does not clamp/clip on to the bottom of the main unit.

Overall Review: Purchased this 3+ yrs ago as a bookkeeper's work printer (bottom tray is plain paper, main tray is check-stock). There was a point in time when some documents printed with garbled text. This issue mysteriously went away on its own later; I suspect it was something wonky with Adobe Reader/PDFs and not with the unit. Overall a great peripheral! :-)

Solid, reliable, simple

Transcend TS0GSJ25S-S Aluminum 2.5" Silver SATA USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Transcend TS0GSJ25S-S Aluminum 2.5" Silver SATA USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: + Includes Y-cable, but you can use other standard Mini USB cables + I've purchased 5 of these total (1 blue, 1 red, 3 grey) and none of them have ever failed me + Got an extra 2.5" drive? Pop it in one of these; you'd be surprised how handy these are for backups!

Cons: - Doesn't come in green, orange or purple (Oh man, that would be awesome!)

Overall Review: ~ The older versions of these came with a small screwdriver (I think) ~ IF you're having trouble squeezing the drive in the shell, I recommend taking the top AND bottom off first, as there are tiny rubber pieces and foam inside that might possibly get in the way ~ When programs (ex: CloneZilla) see the drive, it will have a prefix of "Transcend" in the name, followed by the size of the drive you put in it ~ I have not used the included software, so I cannot attest to its value
