Pros: *Compared with a competitively priced SSD, has large 320GB storage
*Compared with SSD, no 3.5" to 2.5" adapter required
*This DOA drive I got was the shining light to never buy an HDD again
Cons: *Mine was DOA from NewEgg
*Compared with an SSD will not last nearly as long
Other Thoughts: this was the last straw, no more HDDs for me! After 12 years of HDDs breaking down, RMAs, and wasting time and money, I've thrown in the towel with HDDs.
Unless I need an HDD for a RAID array, I'll never again buy an HDD for a single disk drive system (desktop or laptop).
SSDs are a great solution with just a slightly higher price. They are far more reliable, have superior performance, and have sufficient storage space.
Getting those systems ready for Windows 10? Take it from me, GET AN SSD!
Pros: * wonderful speed
* super reliable
* made in America
Cons: * no 5.25" drive bay adapter
Other Thoughts: I'm getting sick of the manufacturers (in this case Mushkin) pretending that people only use these for laptops and don't include the adapter. The fact is most people use these for desktops.
Some bottom line exec there wanted to save a dollar or two by not including screws and the adapter. Well, the bottom line exec here (me) will not buy from you people who cut corners. I don't care if you're the last one left making these in America.
I have to now go out and buy an expensive after-market 5.25" adapter from a third-party when they could have sent me one with the SSD.
Pros: * On Windows 8.1 (x64) it installed at startup and I was able to connect to the network at login
* Has nice green LED
Cons: * This card has MAJOR DESIGN FLAWS. I'm only able to download at about 2 Mbps (.25 megabyte per second) on a card advertised as being capable of 150 Mbps!
* No drivers for Windows 8 from TP-Link (version 1)!
* Not to be used for fast internet speed, file transfers on a LAN, RDP, etc!
Other Thoughts: I thought I was getting a good product from TP-Link and I was wrong. This adapter is obviously flawed in it's engineering. It is especially disappointing for users of high internet speed, file transferring, RDP, etc. If your goal is to save a USB slot then get something like this: 6in USB 2.0 Extension Adapter Cable A to A - M/F and the USB card of your choice.READ FULL REVIEW
