This review is from: Seagate 500GB SATA DVR Expander STAP500403
Pros: Purchased to use as an external drive
Cons: The listing is somewhat misleading. It does not come with any interface cable at all, just a SATA connection that is deeply recessed. Upon further examination the pictures show you exactly what you get. It would have been useful to see the underside of the device in a picture that would have clearly labeled this device as a GoFlex drive.
Other Thoughts: The back of the drive is labeled with a sticker that refers to the item as a GoFlex DVR drive. In order to make it useful you have to purchase an "Upgrade Cable -- USB 3.0/2.0" for an additional $19.99 (Model Number STAE104) through the Seagate website. The cable is out of stock at Newegg.
Fortunately for me, I had purchased the cable to upgrade another GoFlex drive from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 and kept the old cable around.
The device was not formatted for Windows, rather some kind of proprietary format for use with a DVR. It was easy enough to reformat the device in Windows.
For another five dollars you're better off getting a 1 TB external drive, but if you had the interface laying around then getting a 500 GB drive for the sale price was a bargain.

Cons: very slow
Other Thoughts: The performance drives from Patriot Memory are those that have the PEF prefix in the model number. The PSF are not as fast in reading or writing. For a few extra dollars (or if you can catch it on sale or with a rebate, the PEF series is a much better deal.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: This is an awesome sounding set of speakers. Great bass (not boomy), nice highs. They sound on par if not better than the Bose 2.1 speakers. I purchased a set of these in March 2010 for one computer in the house and am now picking up a 2nd set for another computer in the house.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
