Pros: cost per GB is reasonable
reliability of SSD
Other Thoughts: After i got my new build together and had two of these in RAID stripe mode, i bumped one off a 3.5' high table. It hit the floor on its corner and i panicked. Not only would this have destroyed the drive, but also the RAID array. I put the drive back, powered on my new machine and everything was fine. A fall from that high would have broken a spinning drive, but this drive is tough. After that fall, It's already paid for itself.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great sound quality, good range, wide array of compatible devices, bluetooth interfacing for other devices.
Other Thoughts: When you have earbuds or other headphones and the sound is loud, other people can here it. These headphones are completely isolated. i took them off and could barely hear the sound a foot away. excellent surround emulation. I had to pause FRINGE because i thought i was hearing a hard drive clicking on my computer. turns out it was background sound in their lab on TV. it's amazing how clear the sound is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price, ability to use multiple ports.
Cons: none, other than having to manually change the sound output location if the HDMI port is used. i'm not down-egging for that.
Other Thoughts: I have this card running a DVI monitor and an HDMI TV. the hdmi cable hijacks the audio. if the TV isn't being used, i have to manually change the default playback device to the desktop speakers. not a big deal for such great performance and picture quality.READ FULL REVIEW
