Pros: Works great. Not any louder than any other hard drive I have ever owned.
Cons: If you are looking for huge speed increases, you won't be happy. It is a little bit faster than my 500 gig WD black with the 32 mb cache and 3Gb transfer rate.
Overall Review: I almost didn't buy this because of all of the reviews saying it was so loud. Now I am glad I purchased it.
Pros: The liquid cooling looks good.
Cons: It is not a real 8 core processor. Do some research and find out before you get ripped off. If I was looking to buy the slowest processor for the most money, then this would be the processor to buy. My 4 year old 6 core AMD is faster! Save some money and buy the 4 core AMD for $99 or buy a real processor like an i7 or an i5.
Overall Review: I bought it while it was on sale and about an hour later saw a review saying it was not a real 8 core. The more I investigated, the more I wish I could have canceled the order. Now I am stuck with a piece of garbage. The instructions for the liquid cooling install are bad too.
Pros: Quality is great. I like everything about it.
Cons: I bought mine 4 months ago and did the $30 rebate thing. I just received notification that in 1 to 2 more weeks, they would be sending my rebate (Visa gift card). If you don't mind waiting almost 5 months for your rebate, then the product is great.
Overall Review: The product was priced well enough that if I didn't get the rebate, it was still worth what I paid. If you don't mind waiting over 4 months for your rebate, then you will like the product.
