Pros: Immense capacity (duh!) and quiet operation.
Cons: Had an horrific time with the Seagate Disk Wizard. On My Dell XPS-600 (Vista Home Premium 32-bit) it would barely recognize the first of the identical two drives I installed and a mind-boggling, jaw-dropping number of read and write errors cropped up. I had to partition each disk into two 1 TB (931 GB) partitions and the formatting (my system would not allow a quick format) took up to 10 hours per partition. Finally, I had the first drive wrestled and functional (the Disk Wizard also wreaked havoc with some of my applications) installed Disk Wizard on that drive and it would never even recognize the second drive.
SO - short story long, ladies and gents - use Disk Management under Windows to partition and format these drives.
Other Thoughts: Seagate tech support - while available seven days a week - is perfunctory at best. After about a dozen calls, only Fatima and Darryl (especially) were helpful and pointed my nose in the right direction. The latter especially suggested Disk Management.
If you run into a mediocre tech - and you will - hang up and dial again (and again) and get yourself a knowledgeable and helpful tech. Seagate has a (too) few of them.
This review is from: Logitech MX Revolution Black 7 Buttons 2 x Wheels RF Wireless Laser Mouse
Pros: After having read the reviews, I was somewhat skeptical but I was very pleasantly proven wrong. This mouse is a beauty in design and functionality. Especially for a large hand with long fingers. It is very responsive and the Setpoint software ( be sure to download the latest version) makes it a breeze to customize. The battery life is astonishing too - just make sure that you charge the mouse to the hilt before getting started.
Cons: In a week, have not encountered a thing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice card with excellent hardware features for the price.
Cons: * No 64-bit driver included.
* On-CD Intel Utility refuses to install.
* On-CD Profile link takes you to the NVidia web site.
* ABSOLUTELY no links, telephone numbers, web sites or email addresses for technical support. Zero, nada, zilch!
Other Thoughts: Also note that the installation of DirectX 10 takes up to 5 minutes - on a heavy-duty system.
If you can handle the above, then it is an excellent graphics card for the price. If not, go with a name brand.
