Pros: This has 64MB of Cache, 8GB of Flash memory, and it is 4TB
Cons: It takes some time to see the added benefits, also in order to use with windows it must be initialized as a GPT partition and the system’s base firmware interface must use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS. -This has nothing to do with Seagate, this has everything to do with Microsoft. Linux detects this automatically for me too.
Other Thoughts: I could not get this drive to be a full 4TB with my Asus VI Formula with Z87 Chipset, however I had no problems what so ever with my Gigabyte GA-Z77XUD5H. When I went to install W7 it automatically detected the 4T hard drive and automatically formatted disk with GPT format. If your having issues with this hard drive saying formatted size 1.8 TB then your Tech Knowledge may be a 1 or 2 dot, not 3 or above.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The color matches my case build, while very trivial its nice not to have blue and orange components. Its ram it holds information in limbo until I use it...
Cons: Those LED lights are not as annoying as everyone claims. Lights are on everything these days, and since these are great for overclocking, the motherboard I have that is also great for overclocking actualy has brighter lights...
Other Thoughts: I just upgraded from the Vengeance 4GB X4 to a 2 x8. Basically it was the only set that was on the QVL from my ASUS MOBO, and unfortunately I read review after review about how not to get these because the Vengeance are the same thing.... Well first thing I noticed was the ineradicable weight difference. While the performance is really = to the vengeance, I think these are going to over clock much better and stay a little cooler than the Vengeance. I look forward to placing the vengeance back in with the old i5 3570k system, and know that this will be the last time I purchase the vengeance. I will be buying a second set to bring the system up to 32GB.

This review is from: GARMIN GPS Navigation with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates
Pros: Updates easily and can be done up to 4 times in a year. The screen is large and the speed turns red when you exceed posted speed limit. The menu is different from older GPS, but its very easy to learn how to use.
Cons: Fingerprints on screen are difficult to remove, and screen is difficult to see at extreme angles so the passenger can not see easily. (could also be seen as a Pro)
Other Thoughts: The voice has come a long way yet I still turn it off. I would recommend this to others.READ FULL REVIEW
