Simple SSD data backup4/8/2018 7:50:00 PM

Pros: Handy tool for an external drive replacement High quality cord SATA connector stays in solid The connector also had an LED Manual is very informative

Cons: Cord is too short to use for a desktop PC Inserting and detaching the SATA connector takes a lot of force SATA connector does get warm as expected Safely removing the drive is not as easy as the manual states

Overall Review: Using an enclosure would be a good idea because, it's possible to damage the SSD if you're not grounded. Overall, I've had a great experience with this product and would absolutely recommend it to anybody who is looking for a very simple solution for data backup and reusing other SSD drives.

Startech High Quality USB 3.0 Construction2/21/2018 1:27:02 PM

Pros: Shielded twisted pair high quality Super Speed USB 3.0 cable Thick 28 AWG wiring Stirdy USB 3.0 Micro B connection that stays connected firmly

Cons: Very stiff and may be a challenge to manage drive placement

Overall Review: I'm replacing a possible faulty USB 3.0 cable which may have caused my storage device to finally perform very slow. Sometimes the computer would not even turn on the drive during post. In Windows 7, I found that Event ID 11 was showing up in the Event Viewer on device 4 which was the storage device. This was a cheap Bytech cable which failed on several occasions.

More Ram and a 5 Second Signal Loss Through Display2/11/2018 3:31:11 PM

Pros: It's nice having some more overhead in memory. Windows Explorer has not crashed ever since I've upgraded. I can work on large projects with the recommended amount of memory. This memory actually stays about 22C-23C in my system so far.

Cons: I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic for Windows 7 and there were no errors found. Although, I recently had a signal loss from my display for 5 seconds. In the end, the Nvidia popup notified me that there was an error that had been successfully recovered. In the Event Viewer, I found the error was listed as Event ID 13. I'm still in the process of figuring out what is going on. I plan on checking the memory with Memtestx86.

Overall Review: I just updated the GTX 1050 TI Nvidia drivers which may fix the problem.

The perfect replacement for fancy and over priced mice1/18/2018 5:13:54 PM

Pros: It's easy to setup and worked right away after pressing the connect button A good replacement if you're trying to get away from fancy over priced mice The traction is noticeably more accurate than optical mice Scroll wheel feels smooth Comfortable and conforms to your hand with less pain It's very large which is crucial It feels very light, despite it's size The left and right buttons are not too loud The internet navigation buttons are placed in the perfect place

Cons: Software control would be nice, because not every application will scroll when clicking on the scroll wheel The scroll wheel is very loud when clicking

Overall Review: I would absolutely recommend this mouse if your trying to get away from paying only for the brand, but not for quality and features. Adesso quality is amazing for the given price. This mouse is for power users for sure.

The best CPU cooler I've ever owned3/4/2017 4:28:09 AM

Pros: Cool Room Temperature AMD FX-6300: 22C - 26C Warm Room Temperature AMD FX-6300: 25 - 32C

Cons: It is quite a challenge installing. The cooler may have to be angled to the top vent of the enclosure in order not to interfere with the ram. To install, you may have to use your hands to anchor the cooler in place. You will have to have some serious strength to install this cooler, but it's not impossible.

Overall Review: I'm currently running the same CPU cooler in my second system and it is still performing flawlessly after ownership of 6 years.

The Silverstone AEROSLOTS is worth buying2/20/2016 4:53:42 PM

Pros: Temperatures tend to adjust a little more frequently, but by about a degree or so. I could feel the air moving out the back of the enclosure. The slot covers do seem to cool down the pci-e cards. When the system is not as cool, I usually notice small detectable glitches in audio from the sound card, but so far I don't remember hearing that anymore. As a note, It's important to point out that the slot covers do seem to block EMI interference. I have all 3 empty slots ventilated even with a wireless NIC, I haven't had any problems.

Cons: There does not seem to be an overall difference in cooling temperatures compared to before when I had fully covered slot covers. Either way, it's better than a fully covered slot cover that blocks air from escaping out the back of the enclosure. On a note, the metal is not very solid but I haven't had a problem with it bending.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to anybody who is in desperate need of a cooling solution. Overall, I would say that ventilated slot covers are important for any PC.

Antec 120mm DBB 3-Speed Fan - Highly Recommended3/15/2015 6:17:20 PM

Pros: At the highest speed of 2,000 rpm, the fan is still fairly quiet. The build quality is solid. The fans are reliable and keep the system running cool.

Cons: The wires can be very confusing, and there is no manual that comes with the product. Fortunately, there is a manual online which is a little helpful, but pictures showing a diagram would be ideal.

D-Link DWA-582 - Highly Recommended3/15/2015 6:00:38 PM

Pros: The D-Link DWA-582 Wireless adapter has a very strong signal strength. I have not witnessed a single drop in connectivity so far.

Cons: After installing Windows 7 Pro x64, I did have trouble automatically connecting a couple of startup sessions, but everything if fine now. It may be due to the fact that I installed the hardware before the software which was against the advice of the manual. The D-Link connection manager is nowhere to be seen for some reason. As a note, the antennas are very long and bulky but not really a problem.

Overall Review: I'm just using Windows default Networking software to connect through the internet and everything if working fine.

Electric Dusting Makes Sense12/8/2013 3:21:27 PM

Pros: The DataVac blows out all of the major debris of dust thoroughly enough to keep the PC running in the best condition. It's more convenient than using an air compressor that makes you wait and wait for the next burst air to come to a certain level of pressure. On the other hand, using the canned air alternative is dangerous and I'll never go back to it again. I hate to think of what that gas would do to sensitive hardware over time.

Cons: The only thing I noticed is that there is a very thin layer of dust that still wasn't blown away from some of my hardware devices. Even though, that's not really a big deal, as long as the computer runs at it's best.

Overall Review: For those new to dusting out the inside of a PC, never have the duster to close, it's possible something might go wrong. Seriously, this product is powerful, don't underestimate it just because it's small.

rock-solid stability2/19/2012 7:38:48 AM

Pros: This ram is highly stable and reliable with the default timmings turned on. My last pair was identical to this and had the black edition profile already set to 1333 MHz DRAM frequency, but I had occasional lock-ups. Ever since I installed this pair, so far I have had none. Games play faster with less stuttering and applications run much much faster. 8 GB makes a world of difference.

Cons: It would have been nice if the advertised speed would not have to be set manually. Not having expertise in tuning ram timings, I just left the BIOS settings alone because I see barely any difference in the DRAM frequency of 1067 to 1333 MHz.

Overall Review: I tried and tried and I just can't lock-up my system!!

Aweful Board7/29/2011 9:00:28 PM

Pros: The M5A99X EVO is undoubtedly a revolutionary board with its unique power design and innovative BIOS. You don't even have to worry about the ancient wasted space of bulky IDE cables.

Cons: Firstly, I've been buying Asus boards for almost ten years now and never bought a board from them I didn't love. This is the first board I can't stand. First I turn on my system and it takes way too long to even begin to boot. When I enter BIOS the first time, it locks up. After I reboot taking forever... I'm finally able to save some BIOS settings and then suddenly the monitor led starts blinking and the screen is black. Eventually... it dies. The SATA settings are confusing, where you have to set only certain ports just to run a Windows install. The SATA connectors are in a direction that is hard to plug in. It's not even worth getting a replacement. I urge you not to buy...

Overall Review: Before you buy from Asus... think. The problem seems to span from the M5A boards using the new power design. For some reason, some hardware seems to work better than with others for this board. Unfortunately, my system was highly unstable. Asus has a few dozen kinks to work out on the new boards.
