    What's this? A flash disk? 16GB? Are you kidding?

    posted by Dr4k3 on 03/24/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's amazing how small it is! Small! Small!!! Has standard hole for string The card goes inside the metal block from the front, no need to worry that you'll loose the card if the reader plugged in the USB connector. Did I say it's small?
    Cons:
    - the card is not holding very firmly - price is a little too high - mine stopped working after half a year, but hey, I had i...

    low capacity, but worth the price

    posted by Dr4k3 on 09/17/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Mighty cheap, if you take 3 or more. Fits fine. Build quality is equal to orignal, except for the hologram, which is about quarter the quality/resolution/effect of original. But, nobody really cares about the hologram, right?
    Cons:
    Very low capacity - I measured only 250-300 mAh when charging to 4.2V.

    ok, it works fine

    posted by Dr4k3 on 09/20/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Contrary to my fears, it seems to be working. I have extended my 1m cable between nVidia 5200 chipset SATA port and Samsung HD642JJ drive to 2m and it is working just fine.
    Cons:
    It might pose some transfer speed reduction on different MB or with different disk. Also, the price is OK but could be better.

    Pros:
    - does it's job well - working bay lock (see cons) - activity LED with 2-pin connector on long cable - removing the activity LED doesn't change from panel look at all. - attempt to isolate outer mount from vibrations of inner cage (with HDD) with silicon ru...
    Cons:
    - no fan - activity LED doesn't hold fast in its seating - vibration isolation doesn't work that well, but it's OK for it's cla...

    posted by Dr4k3 on 05/17/2008 Certified Owner

    very handy for all hardware freaks

    posted by Dr4k3 on 05/17/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - decent orange~red LED matches nicely with standard SATA cables; does add to the blinding blue LED plague - very small (!!), very cheap - standard SATA connector - works well even with 1m long unshielded SATA cable and with angled connector - pretty fast -...
    Cons:
    - no power adapter included (this may be Pro for someone) - maybe the speed could be even faster? Also, I believe it could be m...
