Pros: This drive is incredibly fast. Granted, its an ssd. That said, this particular ssd outpaces most anything else on the market right now. Windows experience index rates it at 8.1
Windows 8 boots in under 9 seconds.
Diskmark score: 4021
Other Thoughts: Actual capacity: 111GB
This comes with mounting brackets for a 3.5" bay
Tested with following setup:
2x 4GB Kingston HyperX @ 1600MHz (KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX)
This review is from: Cavalry CAXA Series 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive CAXA3702T0 Silver
Pros: FAST, this drive is 7200RPM which means it screams past average laptop HDD's, and with its esata interface it can outperform them on every level as well. This drive is faster than my internal 5400, but that is to be expected. Extremely reliable, I've had it for a whole year and it has not ever faulted me once, so I guess that means 100% reliability for me, and that is not easy to do because I abuse my disks with constant use. Nice blue status light and red error light (which I have personally never seen, thank goodness). The power switch feels nice and crisp after switching the drive on/off every day for a year. Also, the styling is very nice, I would not hesitate to show it off.
Cons: I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, and on neither esata or usb connection mode can I get this drive to auto off like my others. I guess the enclosure does not have that feature.
Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for a year and a week now, so I know all about this drive. Some may say it runs hot, but I don't think it is out of this drive's tolerance ratings, because not once have I turned it off because of "excessive" heat and it has not failed me yet. It feeling hot means the aluminum enclosure is doing its job to dissipate the heat. I know it's discontinued, but if you can find it anywhere, probably best esata 2TB HDD.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor is VERY heavy on the specs-
50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
23" Diagonal measure
2048 x 1152
Touch sensitive menu buttons
Nice stand (for the price)
I've had this monitor for a while now and waited to write a review because I wanted to wait until I could compile enough information. I am telling you now, this is THE BEST monitor you can get especially for the price. I got this when it was just below $200 from here and I am the envy of my friends. Games play beautifully, no ghosting whatsoever, it runs at 60Hz which is more than enough for smooth gameplay, especially in FPS games such as COD.
Cons: This isn't much of a con for me, but I would like to throw it out there so the rest of you know, there is NOT an HDMI port on this monitor, so make sure to buy a lil cheap adapter if you need it.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to push the stand in with all of your might! The thing really snaps in there and is kind of tricky to get right.READ FULL REVIEW
