Pros: It comes with1 128GB SSD!
i5 2.5GHz Dual core HTT.
Cons: Screen size seems smaller than it really is due to the lid's borders.
2x2GB of DDR3. would have preferred a single 4GB stick, so I could toss in a spare I had, but, oh well!
Other Thoughts: I went to upgrade the memory right off the bat, and it was a pain, because you have to remove the entire bottom panel (plus you need to peel it off the back, since it has glue on it)
The SSD was indeed a Samsung 128GB drive, but... it had a sticker that said "Replace with HP spare ####" which is..kind of odd, since this is a DELL. Unlike another reviewer's, my SSD was a SATA-3, and stated it was 6GBPS. So, I was rather delighted to find this pleasant surprise.
This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller
Pros: Touch screen, attractive LED screen, ±1°C/F response, comes with 2 additional thermal sensors in case you don't use all 5 channels
Cons: The instructions weren't the best, though it did give detail on how to operate the front panel.
One problem I have is that I have not been able to find a way to set one specific channel to manual and have the others automatic, so far, it seems it's either full auto or full manual. (because really, I want my fan(s) blowing into my video card to speed when intense gaming, and as I've got about 5+1 PSU fans in my rig, it rarely get over 80°F)
Other Thoughts: Another thing, which I can't exactly fault the product itself, is that because it's so light, it doesn't secure into my case. Because it's a tool-less single-sided mount case, I only have access to the right side to secure all 5.25 bays and therefore when I use the touch-screen, the controller get pushed in on the left side around half an inch.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cavalry CAUM series 1TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache USB External Hard Drive CAUM3701T3
Pros: Strong housing, good price for the size
Cons: When I took apart the unit to upgrade the housing (to eSATA) I found that it was actually labeled as a 5200RPM drive. Had the item already not been out of warranty, I'd be surprised to see if Cavalry would have actually replaced it, or stated I voided the warranty, by opening the enclosure. -3 eggs for misleading information >:(
Other Thoughts: After a few years, of slow transfers, I upgraded to eSATA and saw a major jump from around 28 MB/s via USB, to around 60.READ FULL REVIEW
