Pros: - 802.11AC speeds
- Integrated Bluetooth 4.0
- Easy install (Yoga 2 Pro)
Cons: Just the fact that Lenovo didn't offer an AC card ad default or as an option.
Other Thoughts: Works fine with my Linksys E3000 though that's an older N Widi router. I tested it with a D-Link DIR-510L travel router (AC750 router) and I did get improved throughput and signal strength. I look forward to the arrival of my new Netgear R7000 Nighthawk WiFi router.
This is a relatively easy upgrade for most modern laptops. My Lenovo Yoga two Pro was very easy. On the other hand My Asus G750JH was upgraded at purchase by a custom builder, as doing it myself would of required a lot of major disassembly.
Make sure you get the correct version for you device, this is the new M.2 (NGFF) form factor WiFi card. Check which card your device requires.
I did see a bump in mt internet throughput with the AC750 travel router but the real benefit will be with you Local Network speeds especially for those streaming from their computers.
Pros: - Works well and give a nice speed bump in RAID 0.
- Relatively inexpensive
- The only Dual 2.5 in drive I could find. There are some 4 bay 2.5" drive enclosures by Drobo and Pegasus but they cost between $300 - $400 (but they do offer greater capacity and possibly redundancy/protection).
- Small enough to take with you on the go.
Cons: - The cheap plastic latch that locks the enclosure closed broke with in a month of ownership. Still it manages to stay closed, I will eventually add some duck tape to make sure it doesn't open during transport.
- Documentation is not the best, but get the job done.
- I'm confused as to the exact specs. The documentation and what's listed on newegg differ a bit. Not Sure if it's SATS II (3GB/s) or SATA III (6GB/s).
Documentation says up to 6TB of total Storage (3TB x 2) online description says 2TB (1TB x 2). Probably because there aren't any 3TB 2.5" laptop HDD available.
Other Thoughts: So far happy with the CinaRAID CR-H212. I'm planing to get another down the road.
Would be nice to pait this enclosure with two Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSDs, But that would be an expensive proposition at the moment at nearly 1K for the SSDs.
CyrstalDiskMark showed that in raid 0 it is more than twice as fast as my fingle drive 1TB USB 3.0 drive from WD. I can't complain as it make transfering files much much faster.
Running raid 0 I have no protection so I back up this drive with my WD single 1TB USB 3.0 drive for added protection.
