This review is from: Acronis True Image 2013 - DVD
Cons: I bought this to clone my C; drive. The instructions are horrid - steps are omitted and unless you go user forums for help, you'll be lost. That said, after finally getting the program to clone my C; drive to an exactly similar HD, same make, same model (it only took 4 frustrating days) I find almost all drivers are not loaded, most files are truncated and only about 1/3 of programs migrated. My 1900 X 1200 monitor is not recognized and only shows 1280 X 800 max. I can of course update drivers from the web...if my web connection was brought over to the cloned drive, which it wasn't.
Other Thoughts: If you still want to buy this worthless program after reading these reviews, go to the Acrons forums and read all the frustrating posts and specially the posts that are never resolved. The fun part is when you try to uninstall and you discover that you have to download a cleanup program else your OS (mine is Windows 7 64 bit) won't recognize it as uninstalled.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: hard drive errors
Other Thoughts: This is an update, but no change in my 1 star review. After using the card for 2 weeks, I began getting errors on my hard drive. Finally the drive wouldn't boot without going through a chkdsk, which found many many errors. I plugged the drive directly into the mobo - No Errors! I reseated the card, and errors showed up again. The card is now a bookmark.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy install
Cons: No boost in data transfer rates.
Other Thoughts: I have an older mobo that does not support SATA 3. But my 2 HDs are SATA 3 compatible. I thought this card would be a great way use my HDs the way they were meant to be used. But Windows Experience Index showed no change at all.READ FULL REVIEW
