This review is from: VANTEC Add-On Card Model UGT-PC2S1P
Pros: Parallel and serial connections. Low profile brackets included. I've installed a couple of these over the last year and they WORK!
Windows 7 Pro installed drivers automatically (didn't need installation cd).
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've only used it once to clone a 250 GB drive to a 500 GB. The 250GB drive was failing and had about 35 GB data. I used the one button clone (did not connect to computer) and copy took about 35 minutes.
Installed new cloned drive in computer, an automatic file system check took place, Windows XP booted just fine with no more of the issues from the failing drive.
Cons: Unit is light weight and feels cheap.
The new drive has to be larger than the drive to be cloned when used in stand alone mode.
Other Thoughts: Saved me time over booting from a utility disc and running the clone from a computer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Can't think of any....
Cons: Even after uninstalling all the bloatware, takes about 2 minutes to fully load windows, takes about 30 - 45 seconds to shut down. I bought two and had them side-by-side while setting them up - both were extremely slow loading. One had a hard drive that was clicking - I was on a deadline so replace the brand new unit with a drive I had in stock. Units have 2GB RAM, video uses about 350MB leaving 1.6 for computer. I upped one to 4GB as a test and only shaved 10 seconds off of the 2 minute start up.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased many Lenovo and ASUS notebooks over the last several years and this one is by far the worst I've encountered.READ FULL REVIEW
