Pros: mostly made of aluminum and well-constructed; 2.5" drives fit fairly snugly inside (it would help to lubricate the sides with some silicone for easier removal; requires only one power connector for 2 drives
Cons: it wasn't well documented that the cage only fits the floppy drive slot in the front of a pc case, NOT the regular 3.5" HDD slot, because the spacing of the screw holes on the side is different. I suppose that makes sense because it's meant to be hot-swappable from the front of the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: small, inexpensive and well made; can read both SD and micro-SD cards; reads my Patriot and Adata UHS-I SDHC cards at 85-95 MB/s sequential and writes at 45-65 MB/s sequential; these speeds are on par with my SIIG USB 3 reader which cost me $25
Cons: gets quite warm during use
Other Thoughts: People who report that this reader only runs at USB 2.0 speed probably were using slower cards (Class 10 is only certified at 10MB/s)--the reader is obviously limited by the flash card itself. Very few SD cards on the market are rated higher than 90/60 MB/s and they are quite expensiveREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Even though this is the regular OC instead of the Top edition, it overclocks quite well. Got my GPU clock offset at 182+ (boosts to 1293 in game), memory at 500+ (7000 effective) at default power target and fan on auto (stays below 70 C). Didn't even have to unlock the voltage.
Cons: Price--now that GTX 770's have come down to low $300's.READ FULL REVIEW
