This review is from: Replacement LCD Display Touch Screen Digitizer Assembly for 4.7" iPhone 6 Black
Pros: 100% working
Cons: Good lord man, don't ever break your screen. This replacement procedure is a beating. Swapping everything from the old screen to the new assembly takes precision and delicacy.
Other Thoughts: I use a heating pad instead of a heatgun for the procedure and everything worked well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: To get this type of storage performance with SSD drives, you need at least 4 sata and 4 power connectors, not to mention 4 drives or 4 drive slots... The R7xx series servers we have come with 8 PCI x4 slots, so this was a very, very sensible solution to meet our storage requirements.
We had severe bottle-necking on our SQL serve0r clusters and these drives eliminated every single issue that could be address via I/O. They do use the PCI interface, which in our case does cause a little CPU overhead on the hypervisor, but still CRUSHES the native SAS controller provided from Dell.

Cons: It is expensive simply for being bleeding edge technology... We bought the bullet and took the risk, now we are completely satisfied. But still, my boss is a cheapskate and this process took some serious "convincing". We've owned these disks for 7 months and they've been in production for 5. I've been told that I should expect about 8 or 9 more months before data errors and sluggishness starts.
Other Thoughts: This is obviously the older model and the concerns I have have been addressed in the new product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Durable AF. You could probably throw this thing off a 30 story building and still retain your data. But don't.
Cons: I buy these 1TB usb3.0 drives to put an ISCSI disk image for offsite backups. The non-metal editions that I use, which both benchmark at the same speed, seem to run 80% faster than this model. I'm getting around 60MB/s via 1000BASE-T, where as I can pull around 100-110MB. Not sure if it's the cluster size or I/O pattern I'm choosing on my defaults (which work fine on the others), but the fact that there is nothing different, other than the models and the issue still exists, is annoying..
So, in the future, I will avoid the metal editions.
I deduct 1 star for them not using an identical drive in the non-metal edition.
