    Good, when it works.

    posted by lrms73 on 01/25/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    When it works, it really makes a difference, when comparing to USB 2.0 ports. An external HDD which would only reach ~30MB/s reading on USB 2.0 ports, reached more than 100MB/s when using this card (tested with HDTune 2.55). That was even without using the ...
    Cons:
    Didn't work in my home computer, with an ECS A780GM-A Ultra. Tried both PCIe 1X slots, with or without the extra power connecto...

    Good bang for the buck.

    posted by lrms73 on 01/07/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Nice finishing, decent weight, sufficient cushion (for my use), nice colors (there SKUs with other options).
    Cons:
    The writings "Saddle bike" on the top in my opinion are wrong (shouldn't it be "bike saddle"??) and a bit r...

    Hope it lasts longer than my previous keyboards

    posted by lrms73 on 08/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Seems well built and have clean design (unlike some "gamer" keyboards that go to extremes to justify their prices). The leds are perfect for low light conditions, specially when the screen is also dark (for instance gamex portraying dark environme...
    Cons:
    The feel of the keys is a bit too soft, even in the end of their curse. It could have a more "clickie" feel. Also the...

    Faster than a USB 2.0 reader

    posted by lrms73 on 06/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    USB 3.0 interface really improves speed. Can read both a Micro-SD and a fullsized SD at the same time. Faster than a SanDisk MicroMate (SDDR-113) reader (USB 2.0). With the same card on the same USB 2.0 port, it reaches 30MB/s reading, whereas the SanDisk ...
    Cons:
    It is a bit bulkier than other SD-only or Micro-SD only readers. Can obstruct other USB ports next the port you connect it. Cou...

    Can you notice the difference?

    posted by lrms73 on 06/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Ridiculously fast reading AND writing speed (in theory).
    Cons:
    It seems you can't reach the card speed using most readers. I have tried my digital camera (connected as a mass storage), the i...

    Decent light, but not perfect.

    posted by lrms73 on 06/19/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Aluminum construction seems solid and reasonably light. Powerful light and focus control. Blinking mode useful to be seen. Came with 3 AAA batteries. The bike support seems solid enough and also doesn't need tools to be mounted. Side "windows" all...
    Cons:
    Mine come without the strap pictured (useful for uses unattached from the bike). Also had some minor scratches in the black pai...

    Didn't work as expected

    posted by lrms73 on 06/08/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Seems well constructed and finished. Has a stable base. It did work with my digital TV receiver. Has long, one meter and a half connection cable.
    Cons:
    The signal was not really better than that of SKU 5189, in fact it did seem to have a weaker signal at times. The cabling is a ...

    Decent sport glasses

    posted by lrms73 on 06/08/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It is reasonably light and very solid. Can be used for sports and casually. The nose pad seem to be made from a durable plastic/rubber. The temples are a bit 'closed' (convergent) to keep it firmly in the head. Comes with light but strong case.
    Cons:
    The frame seems not so well constructed compared to other sport glasses I have. The temple doesn't have any rubber internally t...

    Good quality polarized glasses

    posted by lrms73 on 06/08/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It has a good frame material and finish. Has also good lenses and overall construction. It is light and strong. Much better than the usual "cheap" glasses (ex: Foster Grant). Comes with a bag and cleaning cloth. Good for driving, helping minimizin...
    Cons:
    It is a bit bigger than I expected based on the site information.

    Exactly what I needed.

    posted by lrms73 on 06/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A solid, well constructed Brazilian to universal adapter. It's rated for 10/16A ~250V. It has a functional earth plug. It do supports British, European, Australian (also Argentinean), American, and older Brazilian power plugs in a very small form factor. It...
    Cons:
    Couldn't find any.
