Pros: upgrade your video driver from nvidia, i noticed some issues with the computer locking up after a recovery from sleep mode until i upgraded the video drivers. really strange, but i'm pretty sure I've seen the last of it. install a solid state drive, there's an extra bay and it makes this computer really top notch. great for virtualization, civ 5 and sc2 running smooth on max settings for hours.
Cons: need to upgrade drivers, install an ssd to make this thing really worth the while.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AZiO BTD-V201 USB 2.0 Micro Bluetooth Adapter
Cons: installed device drivers from cd (win7), tried to connect my android phone to media audio but it will only create a connection for a comm port or dial up networking.... this is the only bluetooth device i've ever come across that fails to recognize the media capabilities of the phone.
no website, support number, anything, just a generic cd and instruction manual. cheap chinese garbage, not worth buying, probably going to try to return it to newegg if i can
This review is from: WD Elements 2TB Desktop External Hard Drive
Pros: cheap storage during a hard drive shortage. I've owned one for about a year now and it's almost full, just bought a new one for backup and might get another for when i have to expand (hopefully not until thailand picks its game up after the disaster). it's been used in a 'write once read often' fashion but its used a lot every day, so far so good.
Cons: no usb 3.0, but if you're not frequently transferring large files or using it as a network drive that shouldn't matter.
Other Thoughts: For those of you that have had this drive fail with "no warning" I'd suggest taking it out of the enclosure and checking it in another or in a computer... it's more likely that the enclosure board failed than the hard drive if you didn't have at least *SOME* notice. still an indicator of a low quality product, but if you don't lose your data and can put it in a better enclosure that should count for somethingREAD FULL REVIEW
