Pros: Just got 2 of these drives today, But that's only because i already had one for well over a year now. I was looking at other drives, like the WD black, But for the same price i could get 2 of these. So i did.
Cons: Sure these don't have a 5yr warranty, BUT it has the same 2yrs the WD red drives do (Again at half the price).
Other Thoughts: These are currently in my home server for storage/media streaming. The one i had in there is still going strong and currently acting as a temporary storage drive as i replace the 1TB WD Green drive that died on me.
Really a great buy for the price.
This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
Pros: *Great sound (even the 7.1)
*Comfortable to wear
*Mic sounds perfect
*G-Keys are awesome (Volume control is a plus)
*Great battery life
*Didn't have to install a thing (Logitech Gaming Software did it for me)
It muffles most outside sound (Car horns, Airplanes, kids screaming, Honda engines revving to 7k+), But still i can hear when someone calls my name. It blocks out just enough, but not too much.
Cons: It is ever-so-slightly, tiny bit, not even a real problem "hefty". It is a bit of a heavy headset. Then again my old set was so old and flimsy i'm probably just not used to it.
It seams kind of fragile, Then again it's on my head, Which can also be considered "fragile". So far no problems and i wear it while i do everything at night.
Other Thoughts: This is probably the BEST wireless headset you can get for the price. Made by a good company, feels like you got what you paid for.
If you think you might like it, you will. JUST BUY ONE
This review is from: SUPERMICRO AOC-SAT2-MV8 64-bit PCI-X133MHz SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: *Adds 8 SATA-II Ports to you're PCI-X (133Mhz) Equipped Server.
*Has pretty LEDs for Drive/Activity (With Pin-outs for added LEDs!)
*Works with Ubuntu Server 10.04.4 x86
*100+ MB/s to SATA-II Drives
*Option for low-profile
*Software RAID or JBOD
*Server is now 20% "Cooler"
Took a bit of working to get it to show up (My BIOS was hiding the card's BIOS screen), but got it installed and was 100% plug-and-play for my OS (Didn't install a single thing!)
Right now i am running 4x SATA/SATA-II drives in a JBOD configuration (soon to be 8x!).
I am currently running this in my home server, which has the duties of backups, streaming music/video, A TeamSpeak 3 server, and a minecraft server (Just to name a few). So far i have had no problems and it looks to be a great little card for this type of thing.
Cons: The ONLY thing i don't like is that the SATA ports on the back are upside-down. So it makes it a bit difficult to wire-tie the cables together, but even knowing that i would still buy 100 more if i had the money :)
Other Thoughts: My motherboard isn't the newest thing on the block (Intel SE7501BR2), but this card works great and adds the much needed SATA ports to this board. I get around 100MB/s transfer over Gigabit using SAMBA, which puts my 42MB/s i got with my other to shame.
If you're looking for a PCI-X RAID/JBOD card with 8 SATA-II ports, look no further. This is the best (and only) PCI-X SATA-II card with 8 ports for under $100.
