Thermaltake BlacX Duet (ST0014U) ABS Plastic 2.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -The write speeds over esata are great.
-The speeds over USB are good for a USB 2.0 slot. Files were transferring at ~320Mbits/sec (40 mb/sec) from an internal drive to a drive on the BlacX docking station. As expected, transferring files from a hard drive on the docking station to the other drive on the docking station cuts the speed in half. I was getting 22mb/sec on this test

Cons: 1) It only supports two drives over esata if your motherboard/raid controller supports esata port multiplying. My top of the line asus mobo does not so it looks like you'll need to purchase an esata card with this feature.
2) As the box says, it does not support drives over 2tb. I wish I saw this in the store before I bought it.

Corsair Vengeance K90  Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Performance, MMO Mechanical Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -your key presses are register extremely fast
-the usb slot is really just an extension cable. you get full speeds out of it because the keyboard's cable has 2 usb plugs.
-it's shiny and pretty :D

Cons: -I'm extremely light and I couldn't even rest my fingers on the keyboard without keystrokes being sent to the computer. I died to fire several times this way =(.
The F1-F12 keys, all the macro keys, and some other keys are not mechanical keys. Once you get used to pressing mechanical keys, you won't be tapping the non-mechanical keys hard enough for it to register a keystroke.
-The macro keys are on a lower plane. You will not be able to reach more than 1 or 2 of them without moving your entire hand over to it.
-The "L" key was no where near as sensitive as the rest of the keyboard. I had to fully press that key into the keyboard for it to register. It got worse over time. Eventually i had to really slam it in there for it to register, and eventually stopped working all together.
-I bought the matching mouse with this keyboard and plugged it into the keyboard's USB slot. When I unplugged/plugged back in the cables from the motherboard, the mouse completely died. I don't think this is because of the keyboard, but it might be.

Other Thoughts: Returned both defective products. Tech support also agreed that both the keyboard and the mouse were defective and needed to be replaced. Neither product lasted more than a week.

I expected more from corsair. Needless to say I won't be buying there products in the future.

Seagate Barracuda XT ST32000641AS 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have 7 of these in a raid 6 and none of them have failed yet. All of them got to my house in working condition. Very reliable!

Cons: They haven't stopped working.
