Pros: 50x 250GB Scorpio Blacks
Cons: Hosed on the warranty. Note the 3 year warranty as opposed to the 5 year warranty on the original drives
Other Thoughts: You still save a little (at the time of writing this) per drive, but still more expensive than 3/5 the price of buying them individuallyREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast! Same chip (GTX 460) as the F@H GPU Reference bench, but I'm reliably getting more points than the reference system should~~ the OC makes a measurable difference!
The graphics are beautiful, I've never seen so much detail in my life
less sound than I expected.
Cons: large card, big heatsink, lots of heat, etc..
Other Thoughts: My system seldom becomes audible during folding@home sessions, but I can hear it kick in audibly when I run some games.
I was initially having problems with some games performing poorly, and I was stumped. then I realized that I had folding@home running in the bg, since I run the GPU client, it DOES noticably impact game performance, so be aware!
I've not spent nearly as much time with this beauty as I'd like since school just started the same week I got it in the mail, but I'm exceedingly happy with what little time I have. with minor tweaking, I got a windows experience index of 7.6, I bet I could push it a bit and hit 7.9.
Pros: 2 sata data ports, 1 sata power, front access.
the devices are more solidly built than I expected, they feel durable in hand.
Cons: could be a bit longer, the sata ports on the back wouldn't accept 90 degree connectors in my chassis, and that's an issue I expect others will encounter as well.
Other Thoughts: if it was too long, it might cause other issues, so I only dinged it one egg for that because it was a minor headache. I couldn't use the sata6 cables that came with my mobo, so I'll have to upgrade to sata6 cables later if I want a sata6 ssd. if you already have sata 6 cables that terminate at the drive(caddy) with straight connectors, or you're sure of your chassis' internal clearance, then this is an excellent option, and I know I would buy it again!READ FULL REVIEW
