Pros: Was sufficient for the needs of the system it was installed in
Cons: Driver crashes were constant, unrelated to driver revision installed.
When attempting to get warranty replacement, company states that the warranty period is actually ONE year unless you register the card to receive the full five years.
Other Thoughts: Neither Newegg nor Diamond MM made the slimy warranty details present so that I could make an informed purchase decision, so has effectively robbed me. I will never do business with Diamond MM again, and Newegg is on notice. So disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-SU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Cons: Someone really fell asleep at the factory on these lately. Lost a 1TB hard drive to one of these. Not because of operational use mind you, but because it's now impossible to get the stupid drive out of the enclosure! What a joke! I have another one of these and it works fine, but it had the right specs milled, so that you could easily slide the drive in and out, but this is a joke!
Other Thoughts: Buy another brand that has adequate spacing because now there's NOTHING that can be done to get the drive out.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows Small Business Server Standard 2011 (no media, license only)
Pros: Integrated server perfect for small businesses. Don't let the end of life promise of this OS scare you - it is a powerful OS with capabilities that every small business can easily manage. From an internal Sharepoint "intranet" site to Email via Exchange and effortless VPN and File sharing... don't let this one pass you by. The new "Server Essentials" platform that Microsoft is introducing can't even compare to all you get with SBS 2011. I've run the predecessor 2008 for a long time, and am very comfortable with the line.
Cons: End of Life by the end of 2013. Such a fantastic small business server OS should be kept going. It's also a bit of a RAM hog - be sure you've got at least 16GB for this version if possible.
Other Thoughts: WaterwayTek is correct - this DOES ship with the media, so don't let Newegg's title fool you. The Discs included are the OS install, the prep disc and a recovery disc. Easily imaged to ISO format for deployment via VMware if you so choose.READ FULL REVIEW
