Pros: installed on my iPod mini 1st gen. worked flawlessly, even reused the plastic corner parts and tape on the original 4GB micro drive.
Cons: wished they had bigger CF cards less than $90
Overall Review: backed up music from iPod --> laptop using YamiPOD. did a restore (format) in iTunes. loaded backed up music back on the iPod using WinAmp.
you will need an external power adapter after the restore. buy one on ama*on for a penny.
Pros: temps dropped, very quiet, looks nice with a see-through side panel
Cons: pins are a pain to install on the motherboard, spacing issues with PSU
Overall Review: installed 2 of them, and they work perfect. removed pre-applied thermal pad and applied Artic5. I will continue to buy these fans for any setup I use.
Pros: cheap RAID5 on PCI slot. easy web app
Cons: BIOS issues with mb. had to flash RAID card BIOS to oldest version to make it work. Asus mb: P4G533-LA from an HP Pavilion 553x Desktop
Overall Review: totally agree with: Beware of Boot Issues from 8/29/07. I had same problems, but got it to work with using older BIOS on card
