This review is from: VANTEC MRK-225S6-BK Dual Bay 2.5" SATA SSD/ HDD Remov able Rack
Pros: a pass through connection (so it doesn't even touch the data with a chip or anything like that); activity led is based on power fluctuations so if the drive does anything with power it will show it. Ejection design is great.
Cons: why are cons a required field...
Other Thoughts: I've had this since dec 2013, am getting another one; it's great if your mobo can hot swap drives on the sata, no worries about conflicts or it interfering with the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ACTi D11 RJ45 1MP Cube Camera with Fixed Lens
Pros: The camera itself is pretty good but what really makes this amazing is the ACTi software that works with their cameras (free up to 12 i think); It was so simple to install.
The mount for the camera is really nice, if you unscrew the adjuster enough it comes right off, makes it easy to attach the camera after to mount has been attached.
Cons: cube shape is ugly imo; its hard to find the correct software on the ACTi website, I use the NVR v3.0
requires a computer to have software running to record
Other Thoughts: For the capability, the cost of these are amazing, I was going to go with Analog Cameras per the recording unit comes includes, but these scale so much easier.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: looks brand new, came in a nicely sealed package, exact model and specs as listed on site, windows 7 auto installed drivers.
fits fine into a low profile case
Cons: computer hung at startup, after reboot was able to get into operating system, then after some usage it crashed with one screen black and the other with purple boxes all over it.
Ran a benchmark program and when it started rendering images, random pixels started to appear on the screen; when it started to do 3d rendering it just seemed to break up the screen (spheres and cubes started glitch/appearing outside of the benchmark screen) followed by the computer crashing; yea, i know I'll i need to say is 'it didn't work'
I don't think RMA will but worth it, but I guess I'll try
Other Thoughts: this was supposed to replace a video card that has an issue with its fan (its stiff and doesn't run well);
guess its luck of draw, didn't cost much so, oh well.
oh, and just fyi to other poster about not fitting- you much have pcie x16 slot available; I assume you tried it in a vga or pci slot or some other nonsense;
