Pros: Fast when it was working.
Cons: After about a year of intermittent working (would not always register on boot) it finally got a Kernel inpage error and never worked again. Of course this started after 30 days. Was only used for OS with paging and libraries moved off to a separate sshd. Tried everything to get it to work again. Changed cables. Different PSU. Several wipes/resets. Nothing fixed issue.
Other Thoughts: I paid more than the current price but even still with new price can't honestly recommend something that only lasts a year.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: One of the best value and best performing, air coolers out there. Comes with all the hardware you need to install and components all line up correctly and attach smoothly. Looks good sitting there.
Cons: Instructions are a bit unclear. Recommend going on youtube and watching an installation or two. Size can be an issue for both case and motherboard memory placement..
*After around 8 months of use, in a show machine that is cleaned and maintained regularly, the 120 mm fan started making a loud rattling noise which apparently happens alot. Replaced with a Noctua NF-F12, but a bit disappointed that a company I usually trust let me down with a know issue from several revisions of this cooler. You lose a lot of value when you should replace the fan at purchase.
Other Thoughts: Great setup but be prepared with a spare/extra 120mm fan and check room on motherboard for memory clearance and inside case for cooler height.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 External Blu-Ray 6X Writer with BDXL Support Model SBW-06D2X-U/BLK/G/AS
Pros: Came in a box I could use to ship it back in.
Cons: I'm very tech saavy. I tried everything and every trick mentioned to get this thing working. I mean at all. Brand new custom built pc that has no problem with any other USB devices doesn't even get the handshake that a USB device is attached. Contacted Asus support and they basically gave me the "Turn on and off does it work? No? Reformat your PC." I'll update if they ever try to sort this out properly with me. Between this and their garbage monitors I'll just stick to their motherboards and suggest to them they should too.READ FULL REVIEW
