Pros: Sleek little enclosure. Comes with a bag and screwdriver with extra screws in case you lose any. 500gb laptop samsung drive fit right in snug. So easy to get it up and running. Transfer speeds better than expected.
Cons: None, its your basic drive enclosure. You put the drive in and go.
Overall Review: Going to mount some rubber feet on the bottom
Pros: Fast drive, no problems or errors getting it set up other than updating the firmware. Installed fresh Win7 with no issues.
Cons: Update your firmware first thing. Shipping firmware is behind (mine was at 1.3)
Firmware update was a little odd. Would not update under windows at all, and the bootable linux updater only would go up to 184.108.40.206. I bought this with a new motherboard and processor. Once I swapped those in and re-ran the linux updater again everything worked fine (updated to 220.127.116.11). When I checked with OCZ, this is a known issue on their forums with people working on it / collecting data.
Overall Review: Once updated and set up, the drive is really fast and reliable so far. No blue screens or errors.
Pros: Great price and warranty for a 4gb upgrade
Good performance for games
Corsair has excellent support for any issues
Overall Review: Corsair quality and speed. Popped these right in and was ready to go with 4GB on Windows 7 64bit within 10 minutes. Using a Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop.
Shipping / Processing great as always with Newegg.
Pros: High quality Japanese Sanwa parts. Joystick input is extremely accurate. The Sanwa buttons activate with the slightest touch. Very solid design and easy to mod if you want to change anything out. Feels just like being at the arcade.
Cons: Expensive but worth it due to the high quality parts and construction.
Overall Review: I play a lot of BlazBlue/SF4 and this definitely made my game better. After some practice you can pull more advanced moves off much easier than a gamepad. If you have never played on a joystick with a square gate before it takes some getting used to, but it much better to play with once you start using it.
