Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a couple more great products that I just got in from Qicent. One is the Series PU31 USB3.1×2 Super speed PCI Express Card, and it can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $25. The other is the Series PU31 USB3.1 And Type-C Super speed PCI Express Card, and it can also be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $25. These are 2 different options for upgrading your desktop PC’s performance and compatibility. Today I am going to tell you a little bit more about these products, my experiences with them, and give you a chance to win them for free! So let’s get started!
So these upgrade cards are going to be helpful in a several situations. If you purchase a newer mobile device, tablet, or computer hardware, then you may not be able to connect it to your PC. Or you may be able to connect it, but you will be unable to take advantage of the quicker charging or higher transfer speed. This is because the ports on your PC are designed to work with current devices, but as new technology emerges, your PC quickly becomes outdated in this area as well as other areas. Most people either replace their PC every couple years, or they take it to a computer repair shop to be upgraded. Many computer upgrades are easy and cheap to do yourself with a little research. This is definitely one of them!
Most computers are built similar to a car. There is a frame or scaffolding that everything is connected to, or built around. Replacing parts require disconnecting pieces and reconnecting them. I think a computer is much easier to work on because I can replace or upgrade most parts using only a phillips screwdriver! You can save yourself a lot of time, money, frustration, and more if you take a little time to learn some of these skills in your free time. Search engines, tutorial videos, etc. are very helpful resources these days.
Now the items I received from Qicent were easy to install. The side panel on most computers slides right off to reveal the hardware. All you have to do is find the place where it looks like the card will plug into, and there should be a spot for one of these cards there. For me, it was towards the middle of the back of my PC. I simply plugged the card into the motherboard as I made sure it was flush with the back of the PC, and connected it to power. Then one screw held it in place, and I replaced the side panel. The driver download was quick and easy, and I was enjoying much faster charging and data transfer! In my experience USB3.0 is on average 10X faster than USB2.0, and USB3.1 is on average 2X faster than USB3.0, so we are talking super speed! Now my 7 year old PC is performing like new in this area!
Anytime you are working with electronics, please follow all safety precautions. Read your manual, watch video tutorials, research using search engine, learn about safety precautions specific to the current repair, etc. Only proceed when you are sure that you have a good idea of what you are doing!

I received these products from Qicent in exchange for my honest opinion. This is how I really feel about them!
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great product I just got in from Orico. It’s the Universal Power Surge Protector With 4 USB Super Charger Ports, and it can be purchased from Amazon for around $20. This item has 4 outlets and 4 USB super charging ports! Each USB port is 2.4Amps max. In the case of a power surge, which happens often during power outages, it will cut off the electrical connection to the devices plugged in to it therefore protecting them from harm. I am going to share the details of my experience using this product, and then give you a chance to win a free one!
So let’s get started! The unit seems to be built very well. It feels solid, and when you shake it there is no loose noises coming from inside like other brands I have used before. This item does have a nice gap between outlets, so if you are planning on using all box-style plugs, then you will be able to do that easily. It does charge my smart phone and tablet faster than the stock chargers, which is nice! Additionally, I noticed that when I had everything plugged in that there was no high-pitched feedback sound which I have experienced with another brand before.
I have not experienced a power outage yet since I have owned this product, but based on the specifications and how well this unit is made, I have no doubt that it will do it’s job when the power goes out next time. If you do not already have a surge protector for every computer and television area in your house, then I definitely recommend that you protect those areas, and for the low price you can’t go wrong with this one! I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great new product I just got in from Orico! It’s the USB3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, and this thing is handy if you want to use a fast ethernet connection on your desktop or laptop. It can be purchased for around $20 on Amazon or Newegg. Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience with it, and also give you a chance to win one for free! So let’s get started!
This device is perfect for several situations. This will be useful if you have a newer laptop with no ethernet port, then you can simply plug in this adapter to your USB port and you will then have an ethernet port. Also if you have an older computer that has a broken ethernet port and it is not worth the money to repair, then this is an inexpensive solution. And if you have a slightly outdated computer and fast internet, you can certainly upgrade the connection speed using this in combination with a USB3.0 port. There are other situations in which this may be the right device for you as well, but these are popular ones.
First off this product arrived quickly, and the packaging was nice. The device was well protected during shipping, and was easy to use. I did not have to download a driver for this to work in my case, but depending on the computer you are using you may have to. A driver is a file that can be downloaded easily and quickly from your computer in about 1 minute or less, and in it there is a tiny software program that gives the computer directions on how to use the hardware or external device the right way so that they can communicate properly.
In my situation I simply unboxed the device, plugged it up to my USB port in my laptop, and connected my ethernet cord to get it working. I definitely noticed a speed increase using this in combination with the USB3.0 port over the standard ethernet port. In my case it was still not performing at full speed because my internet provider cannot support that! But if they could, I have no doubt from using other Orico products, that it would perform as well or better than similar devices.
If you only have a regular USB port, then I will show you how to upgrade it for around $25 in one of my future posts coming later today! The USB3.0 ports are usually blue on the inside, but if you have a regular USB port then this device will still work for you, but will not have the speed of a USB3.0 device. USB3.0 devices perform about 10X faster than regular USB devices on average. I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great new product I just got in from Orico! It’s the T1 Portable External Battery with Quick Charge Technology. It can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $20. This is a 10,000mah power bank, wow! It is compatible with all USB-Type C and regular Type-A devices, and will be much quicker than charging with a regular USB cable if you have the Type-C. If you do not have a USB-Type C device then this will still work for you at regular charging speed. I am going to tell you a little bit about this product and then give you a chance to win one for free!
So let’s get started! First off this product has a really nice look to it. It looks like it costs a whole lot more than it does! This power bank will charge all of your devices quickly when you are on the go. It’s size is actually slightly larger than my smart phone, but about the same thickness. That is understandable considering how much battery power this thing holds! It is perfect to slide in your purse, pocket, backpack, or glove box. This would be great for traveling, camping, emergencies, survival kits, kids, power outages, etc!
It has a real durable feel to it. Using it is simple, and the charging power is rated at 2.4Amp/12W. There is also an LED indicator light that tells you how much charging power is left when you push a button. I love that feature! This charged my smart phone over 4 full times! It comes with the USB charging cable and user manual as well.
I find myself using this daily because it is more convenient than a regular charger, easy to carry, and much faster! Before I was stuck wherever the charger was plugged in at if my phone was low. Now I can charge on the couch, in the car, or anywhere while I still use my device! I definitely have been missing out by not having one of these! Even if you do not think you need it, you will use it almost daily. Great power bank for a low price! I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!
