Pros: I like the display panel, the adjustable fan strengths and the convenient bay door.
Cons: Primary negative is that the fan is very weak. Even with regular cleaning it has gotten very loud and at this point I got tired of it, let it get so dirty that it doesn't work anymore and finally the noise is gone. I know I could replace the fan or take it out, but I simply don't care enough to waste my time with it. Will be replacing the bay soon.
I think this drive may have a problem with SATA 3 drives as well. There were a couple modern drives I tried to put in it that simply didn't work at all. I almost threw the thing away but decided to try some older models in it and it does still seem to work with the right drives.
On a more nitpicky note, the temperature display's default is in Celsius. You can change it to Fahrenheit but it doesn't remember any settings if rebooted. This also includes fan speed so if you want to reduce the fan speed that defaults to the highest setting, you have to set it manually on every reboot.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't suggest buying one of these, but if you do - take off the Vantec label on the front. It will help with the air flow.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Silverstone PP06B-3PER10F Sleeved 3x Peripheral-4pin + 1x floppy-4pin Cable
Pros: Bought this for a SEASONIC power supply in the hopes that it would work because I couldn't find any SeaSonic cables and needed some.
Works like a charm, sturdy cables with quality sheathing.
Cons: No cons.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Pro 9000 2.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam
Pros: Honestly I can't speak much to the pros as my primary computer runs Win7, although I'm sure it is a decent webcam when it works.
Cons: I originally got this cam for a WinXP machine, for which it worked fine but that machine went out of use shortly afterwards and so I transferred it to my personal machine. I've tried every workaround and trick I could find and I just cannot get this thing to work on my Win7 machine. I read that others have gotten it to work under Win7, but there are also many others who are in the same boat as me. If you are buying this and expect to use it on a Win7 machine - be ready to wrangle with drivers and workarounds.READ FULL REVIEW
