MSI N780 LIGHTNING G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Upgraded from GTX 660 SLI
-Runs higher settings with higher frame rates
-Runs a lot cooler than the two Twin Frozr 660's
-Factory overclock seems sufficient, but with the cooling that is on there, I have a lot of room to experiment down the road
-Lights logos look pretty cool on the see through side of my case

Cons: -This card is really big (I tried a competitive GTX 780 first and it was DOA, so I ordered this and it worked right away, the other 780 was significantly smaller)
-Card's color scheme doesn't match my MSI gaming motherboard
-I would need a really large case if I wanted to run SLI down the road

Other Thoughts: I liked my GTX 660 SLI setup, but there were plenty of games where I didn't get the performance boost out of the SLI. After bumping up to the GTX 780, I couldn't be happier. I'm running games on higher settings than before, my frame rates are smoother, and my system is cooler as well. MSI has a cool piece of update software as well that monitors your hardware and alerts you when there is a driver or firmware update. I had it from my MSI gaming motherboard and it incorporated the GPU into its regular checkup.

StarTech 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express eSATA Controller Card Model PEXESAT32

5 out of 5 eggs Great with Server 2008 07/09/2012

This review is from: StarTech 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express eSATA Controller Card Model PEXESAT32

Pros: Plugged it in and was using my new SoloPRO 2TB right away. Transfer speeds are great.

Cons: I had to shut my server down to install it I guess

Other Thoughts: It worked immediately, no driver issues, great transfer rates (I'm using a SATA II drive so I can't speak to SATA III speeds). Easy to install and great results.

ioSafe SoloPRO 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA Fireproof Waterproof External Hard Drive with 1 YR DRS SH2000GB1YR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -read the description; fireproof, water proof
-SATA II with great transfer rates
-eliminates the need for offsite storage since it is disaster proof
-reasonable size form factor for the level of protection
-great price considering all the great features

Cons: This might be our issue. Our Dell PowerEdge T110 has a PERC RAID card and the existing eSATA port wouldn't talk to the SoloPro (I'm guessing because it wants all hard drives to be incorporated into some form of RAID). I purchased a StarTech PEXESAT32 from Newegg. It was an easy install and they started transferring right away. I did need to buy a cheap accessory to make it work. It isn't SATA III, but it would need to be solid state for that to really matter anyways.

Other Thoughts: I am happy with this product and would definitely recommend it. We run our incremental backups to it and it reads and writes so much faster than our old USB3 drive it would make your head spin. One more bottleneck is eliminated by using this. With what we were spending monthly in offsite storage, this will save it's own cost in no time. I highly recommend it.
