Pros: This monster has got more computing power than the entire Apollo Program ever had. If you must run four 30-inch 4.1MP monitors simultaneously, this is the card for it.
Cons: Max. energy consumption at 208 Watts sounds a tad excessive. Having 4 x DisplayPorts is of no great benefit if you want to connect projectors to this thing, since even pricey DCI-Class projectors use only SDI and DVI ports, and the less expensive ones use DVI, HDMI, and VGA. This card hasn't got any of those. A graphics cards at this astronomical price point should have more than just one type of connectivity -- i.e. DisplayPort 4-times over.
Would have been a whole lot better for most folks if it came with 2 x DVI and 2 x DP. Instead, you are going to to have to be using all sorts of adapters and converters like the Apple folks always do.
Other Thoughts: Does anyone know where the 3-pin DIN standard "Stereo 3D Connector" connects to? Could not figure that one out.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fantastic drive for boot/program drive. The most reliable product you can get these days. A must for video editing apps.
Cons: None with VelociRaptor, but see comments below.
Other Thoughts: I can't belive Newegg is still selling this drive online, when the manufacturter (WD) had discontinued it months ago! So, if you buy it new, you are buying a discontinued model, just so you know. WD only makes 150 and 300GB models of this drive now. Amazingly, B&H Phot lsits the drive on their web site as "DISCONTINUED." but you would not know this from Newegg.
Also, WB makes these driver in two versions, backpane connection and cable connection, Newegg should be clearer as to which conenctivity versions they are selling.
This review is from: acomdata Hybrid Drive V2 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive HD1000UHE5-V2
Pros: High quality drive and components, built like a tank.
Cons: Need to install the utility to control sleep mode, but the drive is spinning like new after 10 years of duty.
Other Thoughts: I purchased a 60GB IDE external drive made by Acomdata back in 1999. It has been running fo me great for the past 10 years, w/o any trouble at all. Unless the company's products have somehow gone downhill recently, I can't validate any of the negative reviews here. For me, Acomdata makes the highest quality external drives, bar none. I would not buy any of the other junk out there.READ FULL REVIEW
