This review is from: Sennheiser Black CX200 3.5mm Connector Canal Stereo Headphone
Pros: Well worth the money. I have a pair of Shure SE315K headphones that I hate to wear to the gym because I'm concerned about water/sweat damage. These headphones are an excellent alternative and, because of the price, I don't worry about them at all. Excellent sound once they are broken it (see "Cons")
Cons: Do yourself a favor and don't rate these headphones until they are broken in for at least 20 - 30 hours or listening. They sound pretty awful at first but after the break in period are excellent for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Believe the hype. My main PC went from and WEI of 5.9 (disk drive being the lowest score) to 7.1. Not that WEI means anything. It's in real life usage that you truly appreciate the speed of this drive. Photoshop boots in <15 seconds, MS Office apps in less than 3. As a matter of fact, only QuickBooks (a known slug) took more than 20 seconds to boot. Fantastic.
Realistic sustained transfer rates to an eSata 4 bay enclosure were around 120 - 130 megabytes per second. 1.4Gb avi files take about 15 seconds.
One final "Pro": It had the decency to die within 30 days so I don't have to deal with OCZ's RMA policy.
Cons: Woke up two days ago to a black screen on power up. I had read about problems with these drives occasionally not being recognized in BIOS so I wasn't worried. The solution is to power down, wait a few minutes and reboot. Not in this case.
After many reboots I uninstalled the drive and reinstalled it in a spare PC (tried with and without AHCI enabled). Not recognized by either the BIOS or the OS. Tried the USB to SATA cable trick with a notebook. No joy. 6 hours of my life wasted.
Other Thoughts: By all means get an SSD drive but be aware that the failure rate at the moment is alarmingly high. I recommend leaving your existing OS drive in your PC after disconnecting it so you can easily swap back to it if/when your SSD craps out. You must also relocate your Documents folder to another physical drive and you'll be good to go until your replacement SSD arrives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lot's of expansion. Good bang for the buck especially if you use a free server OS solution.
Cons: Can't verify this yet but the documentation indicates that the max HDD size supported in 1.5TB. ???
Other Thoughts: The hard drives are installed through the front of the unit. Then front bezel must be removed. Actually quite convenient.READ FULL REVIEW
