Pros: This version is like version 12 but it works.
Kind of like windows 7 is vista that works.
Windows 8 compatible (I hate windows 8)
Finds NAS by itself.
It has not caused my system to crash
Cons: It's not free but I really don't mind supporting a company that puts out a good product.
Overall Review: I have been an Acronis user since version 9. This is the first new version that worked well this early
Pros: It is fast. I build my own computers and upgrade them 1 piece at a time. Normally, the upgrades perform only minimal performance. This is my first SSD and it the only upgrade that has impressed me this much.
Cons: It won't turn my sata II into sata III
Overall Review: Works fine on my 775/p35 board
I hope it lasts as long as Samsung claims it will.
Pros: It was free as part of a bundle and I got what I paid for.
Cons: caused my system to constantly lock up.
I have been a long time user of acronis but I am done now.
come to think of it, every version of true image really never worked right for me until the final release.
Overall Review: Where is the log file I could not find it. How am I supposed to know if it made a good copy or not?
Pros: It is almost as fast as Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS. Dead Silent. I have a 120 mm fan on my Hard drive bay and it runs 4 degrees C cooler that the SE16.
Cons: The only CON is New Egg on this one. It is a 5400 RPM drive.
Overall Review: I think all my drives might come from the Green line. I like not being sure it is on.
Pros: This is the "approved" ram for my board.
Cons: I had to bump up the voltage to stop my system from crashing. It might advertise 1.8 but I have to run it at 2.1 to make it work.
Overall Review: If you don't have to have "the right" RAM. Buy something cheaper with a heat spreader. These are the first sticks of this brand name RAM that gave me any problems. I will continue to be a Hyper X Fan Boy.
I am just happy I finally figured out how to save my CMOS to my BIOS. The only reason I bought these is because my CMOS got confused after power failures and lost my RAM settings.
Pros: It looks good and works extremely well for the price
The almost eSATA addapter makes me want to buy a real eSATA card. For now it works well for me as long as I turn it on before the computer.
Cons: Fan is noisey an almost useless
Overall Review: I got this one because it had a fan and the hard drive I wanted to put in it tends to run hot.
The fan did almost nothing for the drive. I had to put a different drive in it that runs cool enough to not need that LOUD fan.
Pros: Fast, Cool, good gig to dollar ratio. over all noise is low
Cons: Someone should explain to the packaging department how much RMA's cost.
Seeks are louder thatn expected
Overall Review: if I needed another drive, I would buy this on again.
Pros: For the price, this is a great power supply.
Overall Review: I got to use one of the cords I have left over from other components
Pros: Sweet board for the money.
Cons: I had to get one stick of RAM off their list to get this thing to post right. Turn off all the automatic stuff to manual then install my RAM.
Pros: Display is great
Cons: speakers suck (i didn't know it came with them)
Overall Review: one hell of a monitor for the price
Pros: Voltages are spot on
Cons: It won't fix my registry poblems
Overall Review: no pretty lights
Pros: It works
easy to use and install
Cons: It wasn't free
Overall Review: New Egg Rocks
Pros: This power supply is silent. I heard the fan come on once last summer when the AC was off in the house and it was quiet.
Cons: Heavy and long
Some cases there might be a problem routing the cables. I have plenty of room.
Overall Review: If you are counting on using your power supply to exuast heat from your case, this is not for you.
Not a problem for me because I have three large slow fans for that.
Pros: I replaced two 80 gig Maxtor drives because they kept self destructing. I thought they were quiet. I haven’t heard anything out of this drive yet. I made three partitions so this may affect my seek times but it is noticeably faster than the Maxtor drives were. The last WD drive I owned I thought was clunky and slow, this one definitely is neither. If you are considering a 500 gig hard drive, I recommend this one.
Cons: Use a third party software to format it. Windows took forever to format it.
Overall Review: I hope this drive is as reliable as the last WD I owned.
Pros: Nice Solid Case
Cons: It is more work than I wanted to go through to use the bottom set of 3 1/2" bays with a Phantom 500 power supply and a 120mm fan. There are plenty of other bays for my use. I will put water cooling stuff there.
Overall Review: This case is huge for a mid tower. It is almost full tower size.
Pros: Its an Asus. enough said
Cons: Sound clock is a little unstable under high CPU loads.
What do you want for the price of this board.
Overall Review: Flash the bios before you do anything with this board.
Pros: The best power supply I have owned. It is dead silent. I only need a 250 to 300W for the system it went in but I went over kill because it has a built in fan if the temps do raise. In my system the fan has not come on yet.
Cons: It is big and heavy. The only reason I did not give it an excellent rating was its size.
Overall Review: If you want to build a quiet system, here is a good start.
