PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: performance. noticeable performance gains in boot time, program installation, virus scans, etc.

Cons: price per GB compared to standard HDDs, not sure if there are any others, maybe MTBF compared to regular HDDs?

Other Thoughts: surprised that a single one of these gave me a WEI of 7.9
my other SSD drives had to be in a RAID array to get 7.9

BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: inexpensive, plastic so it is easy to drill new holes,
holes for SSD were perfect. not having to worry about the plastic drill shavings when drilling the needed mounting holes

Cons: plastic, case mounting holes did not line up right, holes lined up when installed backwards, self threading screws in plastic probably will strip out after many installs (but who does that . . . besides me?)
doesn't come close to the Rose???? Aluminum bracket

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these . . .
case holes seemed to line up correctly when installed
backwards, but I want my power and sata connector pointing toward the mobo, and SSD on the edge of bracket; the only way that worked was drilling a few extra holes but being plastic and using the provided self threading screws, that was pretty easy.
the rose something aluminum bracket that I bought before from Newegg is awesome.

Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Pretty good 12/05/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM

Pros: Good price, easy network setup, user accounts are easy to setup, folder sharing and permissions, read, write settings pretty straight forward.
My 4TB drive works fine

Cons: default workgroup is a little tricky to change, as is installing MS Security Essentials. It says a minimum 160gig drive is required but it will install on a 40gig with a little effort.

Other Thoughts: you are supposed to do most functions from a client computer using the "dashboard" but some things are just easier to work directly on the server for me but monitor flicker was killing me until I installed some Win7 drivers.
