This review is from: macally T-S350SU 3.5" USB & eSATA External Enclosure
Pros: This unit was easy to setup and works perfectly. Nice clean design, looks good sitting on my desk. Power button light not too bright. Great price.
Cons: Newegg shows a picture of an eSATA cable bundled in with this unit. There is no cable included, which is pretty misleading. 4 stars instead of 5 for this reason alone. Other than that the unit works great.
Other Thoughts: Good luck trying to convince the mfg. to provide the eSATA cable. They simply said it's not our problem, talk to Newegg. Of course Newegg said, it's not our problem, talk to the mfg. I see some recent reviews now indicate that no eSATA is included, could have used those when I bought mine, especially since Newegg shows the eSATA cable in the pictures.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Purchased this drive almost two years ago and have had no complaints. Quiet running, and doesn't get very hot.
Other Thoughts: With technology always advancing and lowering the price of hardware, this is a great deal on a great drive. I've owned WD drives for over 12 years now and I've yet to have one go bad on me. Can't say the same for Seagate or Hitachi. This drive has been formatted numerous times, and I've installed everything from Windows Me to Win 7 RC1 on it with no problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK HDC-D801 Aluminum HDD Cooler
Pros: Quiet, simple installation, fits fine in my hard drive cage, does what it is supposed to do
Cons: None at this price point
Other Thoughts: The fan runs quieter than the 74GB Raptor that it is cooling, so I can't even hear it in my case most of the time. Aluminum fan housing can be easily bent in on one end to allow all warm air to exhaust to the back of the caseREAD FULL REVIEW
