This review is from: VANTEC NexStar 3 NST-280S3-BK Aluminum 2.5" Black USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Very small and compact, works with USB3
Cons: Needs external power supply to work with USB 3
Other Thoughts: Didn't realize this unit needed an external power supply (not included) until I went to use it with USB 3, and unit would not power up no matter what until plugged in. Thank goodness I had an older power supply that fit laying around...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cards runs fine and cool enough.
Cons: I have two of these that I needed to run in the same computer. I found that they are too big to fit, as the PCI 16 slots are only separated by one slot on my motherboard. I could not install both cards without having to flex them, and have them touch together (not so good). I ended up having to use them in a different system. Very disappointing!
Other Thoughts: I had to use two older 5770 cards from Powercolor that I had available, instead of these. The powercolor cards fit on the same motherboard with clearance to spare.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was a nice upgrade from the mediocre hard drive that originally came with my Acer netbook.
Other Thoughts: Was easy to clone from the original drive to this one, and everything works great with a lot more room to spare. Not to mention the fact that it is a bit more responsive as well.READ FULL REVIEW
