This review is from: Nippon Labs SATA3L-0.8FT-BK 0.8 ft. SATA III Cable w/ Locking Latch
Pros: Short, convenient, allows maling shott runs without the mess of long stock cables. Clips make a secure connection
Other Thoughts: Handy and save spaceREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Neat installation, sturdy construction, easy installation, cools the drive so it runs cool instead of quite warm, so I have no concerns about a long backup
Cons: none as of yet
Other Thoughts: I don't use e-sata as USB3 is much faster. I'm going to have to resort to NAS before long.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very low power consumption compared to HDs and early SSDs, Fast...much faster than HDs, cuts boot time to a fraction compared to OS on an HD
Cons: Still not as reliable as the good HDs, but at 1.5 million hours = 170 years MTBF compared to 5 million hours, I doubt we'll notice the difference although I think I'd like to stick around and see where things go.. Larger SSDs are still expensive and the larger the SSD the bigger the difference in price between the SSD and HD.
Other Thoughts: Wish they came in larger sizes for less money. Of course I've paid much more for much smaller HDs than the current prices of SSDs
I currently have 8 SSDs. 2 are 128 GB, 3 are 500GB and 3 are 256 GB.. Nary a prob;lem so far. Cloning system drives to SSDs produces fantastic reductions in boot times. Don't start anything not necessary at boot time.
