Pros: Small and works fine. However, there are issues that hopefully they'll address in a future version.
Cons: Although it works to copy files, the adapter is as cheap and generic as possible. If you put in a brand new msata ssd in the enclosure, the OS does recognize the drive, rather it labels the drive as the default ID String U3S3 SCSI SSD, rather than, say, Samsung 840 or intel 525 or whatever your brand of ssd. For this reason, Samsung Magician or whatever brand ssd program you use cannot identify the disk. Also, a brand new perfectly working drive gets very hot in the enclosure, perhaps around 60 degrees Celcius by just copying files in a few minutes (Here, I use crystaldiskinfo to get the temp reading).
Other Thoughts: The enclosure transfers files fine, it's just bothersome that it gets so hot and certain programs (including the OS) is not able to identify the disk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: IMO Fujitsu = quality, and you can definitely see it in the q584. Everything about the tablet speaks of quality including the waterproofing (which is not an issue, since I don't plan on getting it wet!) and the overall "feel" of the tablet.
Cons: There is a white "flickering" line that sometimes appears on the top of the screen. Actually, this white flicking line appeared on another q584 I bought from newegg, but newegg refuned me for the defective tablet. Another downside is that the tablet often takes a long time to load simple programs; for example, when I load mozilla firefox it takes a while to do so.
Other Thoughts: I have to say that I have had 4 fujitsu laptops in my life starting with one of their first lifebooks and they all seem to last (without ever having to get them serviced) for 8 years or so. I hope this one does the same.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low power consumption.
I put this in my very old dell pentium 4 optiplex GX280 (together with a samsung 840 ssd and I also bumped up the ram to 3gb), then installed upgraded to windows 8 pro 32bit, and the computer works like new. (The reason I bought the GT630 was to upgrade to windows 8.)
My old dell only has the original 250W psu, and the GT630 recommends 300W, but so far it has been working flawlessly with no issues whatsoever, and gives me a 6.6 for the graphics portion of the windows experience rating.
Other Thoughts: With this experience I will probably never buy/build a new computer again, just buy an old (quality) one, put in a new graphics card, ram, and an ssd. Note that I don't use my computer for heavy gaming; if I did use it for heavy gaming, then this graphics card and my old computer probably won't work well, but my purposes it works like a dream.READ FULL REVIEW
