Pros: Fast, reliable, easy to use. This unit allows for transfers much faster than you would be able to achieve on anything besides a Thunderbolt drive, at a fraction of the cost. I use this in conjunction with my Macbook Pro to download files from high end cinema cameras to duplicate drives. When copying to my G-Tech G-RAID drives, I can consistently get 200-250 MB/s per drive.
Cons: Thunderbolt cable not included, so add an extra $40 to the price of this unit for one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA 4 x Serial Ports PCI Express Card Model SD-PEX15011
Pros: Cheap, 4 port serial card, only uses one PCIe slot.
Cons: Not reliable. Two months ago we installed 13 new PCs on production lines, and needed to expand their serial inputs. We bought 14 of these cards (13 for the PCs plus one spare), and at first they seemed to work great. We have a barcode printer and a scale plugged into the serial card, and during our trial phase where we only had two of the new PCs running, they seemed to work fine. Once we brought all of them online though, we found that only about half the cards would work all the time. The other half will intermittently stop communicating, and no number of restarts, driver reinstalls, BIOS resets, or even Windows reinstalls will fix them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Ultra SDSSDH-120G-G25 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fast... at first
Cons: Totally unreliable, I bought two units for work. One of the two was DOA which I should have taken as a sign. The second unit has only been in use for a little over a month, and the machine is locking up. In Resource Monitor, the % Active Time is maxed out, but the I/O stops completely. Drive is only about 60% full, so I would think that even without TRIM support, this drive would not perform so poorly. Guess I was wrong.
Other Thoughts: Stay away from this drive, and spend the extra money for one that supports TRIM. It is absolutely worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
