Pros: I can't say enough good things about this card. And it is VERY FAST. The manual is by far the most comprehensive I have ever read. Very clearly written, it makes installation easy if you take the time to read it. A myriad of options are available yet very manageable. Browser based configuration utility is beautifully clear as is the boot utility. Firmware upgrade (1.52) was easy. The entire installation was trouble free.
Cons: Not one.
Other Thoughts: Using 8 Crucial M500x240 SSDs R5 config, ASUS KGPE-D16, WIN 7x64,READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS MIO-892 High Definition Audio Card
Pros: Meah.....This card is OK. It's the only one that will work in the ASUS KPGE-D16 motherboard so I had no choice. I wish Asus would make an MIO card with full features such as the Xonar D2X which is a great PCI-E card but it won't work in the KPGE.
Cons: Not really...but
Other Thoughts: This card is an MIO sound card intended for MIO enabled slots. I would check carefully if you intend to use it in a standard PCI-E slot. It probably won't work.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-126-SA 1 x 5.25" to 6 x 2.5" SATA 6.0 Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage
Pros: I really like these things. I put two of them in my PC so I can easily swap SSD drives that might possibly fail instead of having to take the PC apart. They are well made and fit in slots perfectly. I also like the LED setup. They are a soft blue and change to red when there is disk activity on each individual drive.
Cons: None, but see "other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: Using standard screws usually supplied with PC cases are too long for these cages and will protrude through the hot-swap case causing the individual disk drawers to bind. Use the very short mounting screws supplied with the cage to eliminate this problem. I learned the hard way.READ FULL REVIEW
