This review is from: Cavalry Passio 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive CAXH3701T0 Black
Pros: 1) Good price
2) Plug and play
3) Multiple inputs including the easy but slower USB
Other Thoughts: With todays digital pictures, it's become almost a necessity to have a back-up drive that you can grab and go in case of an emergency.
For the price you can't beat this drive. 1TB should give you plenty of room for all your pictures and music plus any data file you need to keep.
Runs silently and cool, you do need a 120v outlet to plug into as it's not self powered from USB as some of the smaller add-on drives are.
Pros: 1) Cheap
2) Works well for surfing, email.
Other Thoughts: Have hooked up to big screen LCD (46"), added 4 GB memory(39.99), wireless USB(29.99), upgraded video card (HDMI 29.99), wireless keyboard and mouse (29.99) and finally a good webcam (HD 59.99).
So for under $500.00 it's a great addition to the home network.
I have a great setup that can do 90% of my computer "jobs" and can video chat with my family and watch the grandkids in HD on the big screen from my easy chair. It doesn't replace my office computer (smallish hard drive) or the household laptops (mobility) but is a great addition.
Pros: 1) Plug and play
2) Easy installation
3) Gives the ability to use two monitors (upgrade) VGA D-Sub or HDMI.
4) Has an HDMI output (makes LCD TV a great monitor)
5) No fan to wear out and make noise
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Second purchase of this item in 2 weeks, no problem, just added another to a second computer. It works as described, plug and play, no issues what so ever. Remember to buy an HDMI cable with this board so you don't need to pay $30 at the local store for one.
It is a PCI Express 2.0 16 and both of my computers only have one such slot so I need to be carefull of fitment for future board purchases.
