Pros: This little enclosure was certainly priced right! It is tool-less and simple enough for anyone to use. It makes fantastic use of the hdd I replaced with an ssd. It is usb 3 and is ridiculously fast as compared to my old usb 2 enclosure.
Cons: This enclosure is mostly plastic, and thin plastic at that. The aluminum cover looks very nice, but the integrity of the plastic concerns me.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very pleased with enclosure. I'm very careful with any external drive, so hopefully the inherent vulnerability of such lightweight plastic will not actually pose a problem. But in the event of a drop, I suspect I'd be left with broken plastic and a drive that escapes the confines of the enclosure.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It does indeed display an image. There are no compatibility issues with Windows 7 Pro 64. Very quick shipping from Newegg!
Cons: Literally cannot tell the difference, regardless of how intense the action, between this card and my geforce 512mb 32bit card! The fan/heatsink looks nice in the pictures, but in reality they are pretty flimsy and cheap. Beyond that, the fan is super-loud. I have four case fans in this build, and the fan on this card overpowers them all. Artifacts appear on the screen for a split second at completely random times. Its just as likely to happen when writing a letter as when heavy gaming. Thank goodness the card was relatively inexpensive...it certainly performs like it.
Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again, I'd buy a different card. Also, absolutely DO NOT count on getting the rebate. The process is just ridiculous, and after actually getting through the convoluted mess of submitting the rebate, Zotac still denied my claim (their excuses are pure fiction). Its hard to believe a company would try so hard to avoid such a small expense. I guess that is one way improve a the profit margin!READ FULL REVIEW
