Pros: I have purchased 6 of these over the last several months running each over 700 hours at about 10% heavy load. Each has run flawlessly and silently. I am now running 4 in a RAID 10 with 2 on the self. At current pricing this is an obvious set up.
Cons: I really like NewEgg and always stop here first when shopping. But their weak link is packing/ shipping and it can be a very weak link.
Packing for shipping of these drives was amateurish compared to a competitor from whom I also purchased. The competitor used purpose sized box with shock absorbing plastic inserts that suspended the drive in midair. NewEgg used packing tape and bubble wrap stuffed in a stock size inner box. Perhaps NewEgg packing is good enough. But how do you want to see your drive arrive?
Other Thoughts: The 7200.11 series runs hot at 110 F. All of the high RPM drives do. If you run this drive without some form of active cooling you are asking for a short life.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Verbatim 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 95098
Pros: A very good value for a DVD
Cons: I always verify the DVD after writing and run about a 5 - 10% coaster rate.
Other Thoughts: Even when the loss rate is factored back in this DVD is still one of the best values I have found. Another reviewer noted the product is made in the Subcontinent. My cake came from Taiwan, FYI.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Razzo 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF16GRUSB
Pros: A very good value and one of the fastest flash drives I have used. I trust the Patriot brand from past experience. What impressed me most is I saw no reported failures in the reviews.
Other Thoughts: I find the Cons of others somewhat silly. Perhaps people feel they need to find some Cons for any product.READ FULL REVIEW
