Siig 2.5" USB 3.0 SATA 3Gb/s Certified Enclosure - Review


After Dr. Dre made his first solo hit in the early to mid 90's, another hit was born. USB made it to the top being the most influential and the greatest technology still to present day. USB is separated by 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 because of the hardware...

Stable results with HDD and SSD test ; Fast Installation Technology ; USB 3.0 Y-Cable ; Protective Pouch

Does not fit 12.5mm HDD/SSD

Throughout SIIG’s 2.5” USB 3.0 SATA 3Gb/s enclosure testing, I thought it was definitely one of the most pleasant tests so far. I did not have any issues with compatibility, except testing it with my Western Digital Scorpio Blue HDD. The results are...

It's good if your looking for a cheap sound card

3 generations behind my motherboard's built in sound card. Not worth it in my book. Returned

50/50 Reliability


Bought this at Fr ys as the next best thing to a fully automatic USB switch that couldn't be had. While two Win7 machines can switch just fine, the XP was not having it. In lieu of using a network to a USB connected printer (tried this and couldn't get...

Small form (easy to adhere any 3M product to the back for mounting), includes two 6ft A-B cables, both manual and simple computer interface switching ability, no power adapter needed, works with latest computer builds, not a bad price

Older comps have issues with using the provided software (XP comp can't use Switch feature, and manual switching isn't much better), design doesn't allow for a very "clean" cable management, SIIG support is next-to-non-existent, and no online...

Depending on your motherboard type, you may need an adapter to connect the internal usb connection to motherboard.

Great to have since my case is older and my system is home built, I needed front panel USB 2.0 connections

Works as described


Worked out of the box, no issues for me. In fact, I use this in 2 separate offices now. Heck of a lot cheaper to buy this switch than to buy another Fujitsu.

Works great to share my Fujitsu 6130 scanner between two desktops in a small office. Switches on the fly reliably. Have used with XP and Win 7 Pro

None that I have found, however I have only used it to share scanners

Don't get this one.

Allows you to connect a SATA or IDE drive to your PC via USB

It is not reliable. I will connect a drive to my computer and it will not read it with this device. If I use another device the hard drive can be read. It feels cheaply made and the power pin for the device does not like to stay in

SIIG 16.4 ft. HDMI to HDMI Cable Model CB-000022-S1


Newegg shipping was great as always, you just can't beat it; lots of packing inside the box to prevent damage to the items during shipping. Couldn't find a better price on this than through Newegg, as usual.

Signal quality is great, especially considering the long cable length. Transmits audio and video flawlessly. Shielding is tough; my girlfriend's cat eats through every wire in the house, hasn't been able to put a dent in this one. Construction is...

None, performs as advertised

Works w/Windows 7 64bit


I was a bit worried when there was no mention of Windows 7 support or drivers. When I added the card to my Windows 7 Pro 64bit based laptop the OS went out found and loaded the driver flawlessly. The card works great, giving me 2 needed extra eSATA...

Two eSATA ports in a compact and cost effective solution. Though the disc and the SIIG web site do NOT list Windows 7, it works great with it

None so far

Not a hardware switch


I bought it to use it as a keyboard + mouse switch (yeah, yeah, it says it's not "designed" for that), but honestly I can't even see it working with a USB drive, printer, scanner, anything. The problem is that the switch won't switch if it thinks the...

Switches things...sometimes

Most of the time it refuses to switch. This is especially true if you have a piece of hardware that is mounted within your OS and must be unmounted before you can remove it

Siig also offered a RMA if I paid shipping.

It looks nice

DOA. No lights, Windows (XP SP3 and 7) reports unknown device. Tried connecting to several known good USB ports. $10 shipping plus an hour of my time to return - not worth the RMA
