Pros: Low-profile, fanless, 3 of 4 common display outputs. It's honestly pretty snazzy-looking, to boot.
Cons: 2GB of memory is overkill for this GPU and mostly there to pay a few extra bucks for. IMO.
Other Thoughts: You can probably find a deal on a higher-performing card for this card's list price if you look, but with a discount and a rebate it's really hard to beat. Only logical thing that could be improved would be inclusion of DisplayPort, but that's stretching the definition of logical in this market segment and price point.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100 Black
Pros: Cost/TB, USB 3.0 connectivity, Plug-and-play has worked with everything I've attached them to so far (all Windows machines)
Cons: A 1-year warranty seems pretty stingy, considering their bare drives (which get handled directly!) typically get 2 years or more. Wants you to install management software. Doesn't need it, though.
Other Thoughts: Bought 2 3TB models, one for portable storage for an organization I work with and one for my own use. Both still function just fine so far, even with one moving around a lot.
I'd originally purchased my personal unit for image backups for 4 Win7 machines, but the built-in Windows backup mechanism doesn't write system images on a drive with 4K sectors. Other backup software is less picky, plus I went ahead and installed a cheap 512B sector 2TB internal drive for system image storage. More complex system than it needs to be, but I guess it provides some redundancy. Live and learn.
Pros: PWM, rubber mount, quiet as one could reasonably ask for. I don't think I've ever had a fan with a better airflow-to-noise ratio. Still as quiet as day one despite running essentially 24-7 for over a year. It's even nice looking.
Cons: One could say price, but I think they're worth every penny.READ FULL REVIEW
