This review is from: Link Depot FAN-5015-B 50mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Rather impressed it lasted this long on Asus p67 motherboard. Still working but now loud.
Other Thoughts: Be warned you may have to spend another four or five dollars in five years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I do not own this laptop. Friend brought it to me today and asked me to put windows 7 on it. He had already tried and would not boot. Used the windows 7 install disk. Formatted drive and used most of the drivers from Acers site to bring it back to life. Most all of the Win 8 drivers worked fine except ethernet. For that saw what model broadcom put in it and found the correct driver from their site. win_k57_x64-188.8.131.52.zip All is working fine. Nice machine.
Cons: If you really crank on the cpu and gpu you will find how much you need a plug in. Two hours would be pushing it even with a not too demanding game. Bet a fully modded skyrim would eat it up fast!
Other Thoughts: This is just my six hour review scrambling the system and bringing it back to life. Nice machine and construction. Impressed with the resolution, graphics, build quality, sturdiness of power port (important with laptops). But of course YMMV.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have 5 of these in a raid5 setup tower from Newegg. Since I bought them early did all the firmware updates noted in the reviews. No problems and they were faster than expected. Put 4 in my htpc and was happy again with the results. Quiet and cool and was surprised that the OS worked as well and as fast as it did with these "slow" drives. Threw the dice and put two more in my main desktop to run Win7 64bit. Again not to bad. Do no gaming on any of these and have been quite happy with the results. Quiet and cool all around and not too sluggish. One more purchased as a hot spare for the raid so now I am set. 11 total, 10 of which run every day, 2 run 24/7 for six months with no problems. Will report back if there is.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
