Pros: Very fast and efficient.
Reactive (versus resistive) load is good for generators or solar inverters and eases the strain and mileage you get.
Heats 10 ounces of tea to 120 degrees F in about 45 seconds.
You can move it anywhere in kitchen to make more space or take it with you, very light.
Cons: Manual is somewhat lacking as has been stated but there is a cooking temperature scale on their website. Fan is indeed somewhat loud but acceptable.
Other Thoughts: Several members of our household use this several times daily. It is quick and easy learn the different settings and once learned you get exactly what you expect. Power levels 1-4 duty cycle (turn on and off) to achieve lower powers but then again so does an electric stove. This is a great introduction to induction cooking towards making a decision about a full range top. Remember that the standard outlet is limited to 1500 watts or so but we can still cook a very large pot with a lid. The larger models that use 250 volts can achieve 3600 watts like a regular large burner. Recommended for the price, thanks NewEgg!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seems very well built. Drive response time as RAID1 is quite acceptable.
Cons: Sold through Newegg, shipped from third party seller, received wrong item, took more than a week to receive what I ordered. Wrong screws were included, requires low clearance screws to close case which fortunately I had. Fan (noisy) starts up at power on and shuts down some time afterward, even during heavy transfer when the heat builds up. Fortunately the front is very well vented so I don't think it will be a problem with the drives I am running as they don't get too hot.
Other Thoughts: Definitely will think twice before ordering from a third party carried by Newegg. Newegg however rocks, have not had a problem with Newegg ever!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I own over 20 of these now, running 365 days a year 24 hours a day under heavy load and have not really had a problem either in ESATA or USB mode.
Cons: Internal 80X80X10mm 12V fans fail after a relatively short while. For some applications I take out the fan as these cases have plenty ventilation and this improves it. I keep a supply of these fans on hand which you can purchase online from a China supplier.
Other Thoughts: Quiet reliable sturdy construction designed for long term service.READ FULL REVIEW
