Cons: Confusing pricing
Other Thoughts: I just ordered an open box version of the card for $610 that indicates the normal price at Newegg is $670.
$670. Not $900.
The Asus part number is identical (STRIX-GTX980TI-DC3OC-6GD5-GAMING) yet shows that the "normal" non-open box price is only $670.
What's confusing and misleading (to me, but I'm slow) is that the primary listing with lots of reviews is for this seemingly insanely overpriced listing. Are people actually paying this much?
All I know for certain is that the one I ordered (claimed non-discounted price of $670) is the same part number, and the open box return policy is great if I have any issues. (Never have with Newegg open box or refurbished parts in the past.)
Pros: 1. RAID
3. Bus powered ... no power supply needed (not on my Macs, anyway.)
4. Extremely simple setup.
5. Quality materials, fit, and finish.
6. USB 3
7. The price is very inexpensive, IMO.
Cons: I'm really trying to come up with something here ... but so far it's been perfect, and I can't think of anything that I wish was different.
Other Thoughts: I have been waning a RAID enclosure for 2 2.5" drives for a year or more, but held off until I saw that the USB 3 version of this enclosure had hit the market.
For my needs, I use RAID 1 (Mirroring) to safeguard irreplaceable data. Sure, you can drop the thing while it's running and trash both drives, but that's life ... be careful not to do that. I also back everything up to a RAID 1 NAS, so this is bonus protection for me.
After setting the two switches for RAID 1, OS X Disk Manager saw it as a single 1TB drive, which I then partitioned and encrypted with TrueCrypt. All without a hitch, and it's been working just fine since then. (Granted, less than a week, but if I have any issues I will update this review.)
I very highly recommend this product if you're on the market for a 2.5" RAID housing.
This review is from: Logitech F310 Gamepad with broad game support and customizable buttons
Pros: Good quality, works perfectly, great price.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I've had this thing for several months now and it's been flawless. I am a PC gamer and a diehard Mouse & Keyboard guy, but for racing games, I prefer a controller like this.READ FULL REVIEW
