Pros: This was exactly what I needed, my computer has decent specs but was just prior to USB 3.0 being standard. I'd made up for that by installing some cards but was starting to miss fast usb in the front. This made it easy to have a couple of front ports and extend the usable life of this computer for me. This could be used by someone who has USB 3.0 headers in their motherboard but also has extra USB 3.0 cards (with internal ports) installed. It installs easily enough, the holes lined up perfectly for me and it's built like a Sherman tank.
Cons: It's not cheap, not even close. But in this case you do get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: Not once have I been sorry that I purchased this...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SONY 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Spindle Disc Model 100dmr47sp
Pros: I purchased my first spindle of these discs for use with my kids. I figured that they were cheap (that is, inexpensive - I bought them on sale) so when my kids trashed them it was no big deal. They turned out to be really rugged, my kids are terribly hard on their DVDs and these are no exception but after over 200 burns they have only managed to trash 4 of them, the rest are still going strong. I've never encountered a problem of any kind with these and I've never had a coaster. I have burned these in an old IDE burner and in brand new SATA drives and my burns have never failed or had any errors. I'm not sure what else I could ask.
Other Thoughts: Based on their track record with my kids I'm starting to think that I should be using these for my personal burning purposes. The next time I see these on sale I think I'll get some more for the kids and some for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RDRD-11003 2.5" SSD / HDD Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay w/60mm Fan
Pros: If you have a 2.5" HDD that you want to mount in a 3.5" desktop case this is the way to go. I purchased these on sale so I figured that even if the fan was worthless I'd be in good shape. Fortunately the fan has turned out to be excellent. for a fan so small and in such a cramped space it moves a surprising amount of air and has consistently kept this drive cooler than the rest of the drives in my system (6-8 degrees Celsius cooler on average, under load) . Additionally, it doesn't feel cheaply made. I really couldn't be more pleased.
Other Thoughts: The holes lined up easily so installation was quick and simple.READ FULL REVIEW
