This review is from: Koutech IO-PESA230 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: Works fine so far. Easy to install.
I'm not booting off of the drives connected to this card, but both drives read and write just fine. I'm also not using for RAID array, for what its worth.
I read all reviews before purchase and wonder if some folks are trying to use this with older motherboards that don't support SATA III. That is no fault of this card.
Cons: Not necessarily a con, but card is very short and small. For large cases, use 24" cables.
Other Thoughts: I read all the reviews before purchase, so I'm not using this card for boot drives but extra 3tb storage drives. I wonder if most of the negative reviews are from users with older mobos that simply don't support SATA III? A lot of it seems like user error.
If you have a large case, you'll need 24" SATA cables. I have a Coolermaster Cosmos 1000 and the 24" calbes reach perfectly from this card to the hard drive bays.
This review is from: Microsoft XBOX 360 Holiday Bundle w/Skyrim & Forza 4 250 GB Hard Drive
Pros: It's an Xbox and it works great. Fast wireless connection, plenty of space on hard drive, lots of other entertainment options. Best game console I've ever owned.
Cons: No bluray player. I almost bought a PS3 b/c I wanted games and a BD player in one. Instead I bought the Xbox and a BD player. This was not a surprise, just a limit that will hopefully be fixed with the 720 next year.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice flexible cable that works.
Cons: No bulk discount if you buy the same cable in a different color.READ FULL REVIEW
