3 new drives each fail SMART test UPDATE4/4/2014 12:40:35 PM

Pros: well packaged, nice design, no sharp corners, good price

Cons: not compatible with all USB3 controllers

Overall Review: This an update to my previous post.. It turns out the drives are basically good, but not compatible with the USB3 controller on my Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3 motherboard. They pass the WD-DLG Diagnostics on the USB2 ports. Would have bought a different product if I knew they would not work up to speed on my machine.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Jim, This system is a bare-bones system. You have to purchase the RAM, hard drive, and OS separately. Thanks.
great machine - but can't install ANY Linux OS6/14/2010 6:56:59 AM

Pros: beautiful screen, nice keyboard "touch" and layout, very fast all-around, hot-swap eSATA connector is great for external drives

Cons: I can't get any Linux boot disk to run on this machine. No Clonezilla, no Ubuntu, Fedora 13, Mint 8. Most freeze at kernel_thread_helper. I run several machines dual-boot with Windows and Linux, and hoped to get it to work on this one. Most online "solutions" involve being able to boot the machine and tweak it later. duh - it won't boot! Tried CD and flash drive installers. ...still working on it

Overall Review: Very glossy black case shows finger oil smudges easily - no snacking while computing! Could use another USB port or two. It has two, plus a shared USB/eSATA port

2160 does work8/19/2007 6:54:17 AM

Pros: Works well so far in a small business environment - no heavy graphics use. I'm using the E2160 processor in it with no problem, running cool and fast.

Cons: No cons so far

Overall Review: mostly responding to the review claiming it does not work with the 2160 processor - it certainly does work. I put it on an ASUS P5B-MX LGA 775 Intel 946GZ motherboard using WINTEC AMPO 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR2 800 RAM. All parts from Newegg.
