This review is from: Vantec 2.5"/3.5"/5.25" SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter - Model CB-ISATAU2
Pros: Worked as advertised for a period after purchase, often did not require drivers and would be immediately recognized by the BIOS or operating system, ready for mounting.
Cons: Unit stopped being recognized by the system after about 3 months. I determined it was a hardware failure as it wouldn't be recognized by windows or linux 'lsusb' command. Other peripherals worked in the USB ports.
Other Thoughts: I will be checking out other manufacturers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Performs well, an excellent drive
Cons: Only performs marginally better than the "blue" drive with similar specs. I tested both the WD1003FZEX Black and the WD10EZEX Blue. Both drives have the same capacity at 1TB, same 7200 RPM, same 64MB Cache, and both interface with SATA-III at 6.0Gb/s. The Black however had some internal enhancements that increased it's access time slightly over the Blue.
Other Thoughts: Both drives are good, but compare them both and weigh your options.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i CW-9060009-WW/RF Water Cooler
Pros: Keeps my FX8350 ice cool under load.
Cons: Some hardware installation issues, incorrect length screws, and had to use some extra flat washers. CorsairLink software is not worth installing.
Other Thoughts: My first experience with a water cooler system, other than the issues with the software and the installation instructions, I was overall pleased with this product and its performance.READ FULL REVIEW
