Pros: I bought this card because the 2 USB headers on my motherboard where already in use, and I specifically needed another set of internal header pins instead of the typical female USB port like most cards have. So at least for me I consider this a positive point. Also a nice positive point is that this card works great in my Linux box. I am currently running Linux Mint 7, and can report that it works flawlessly.
Cons: Only 2 external USB ports. I would have liked to see 3 or 4 external ports, but this is minor.
Overall Review: For the price you simply can't beat this card. I would have paid a few bucks more for 4 external ports, but this was card was well worth the price.
Pros: None - Incompatible
Cons: I was unable to get this memory to work with my motherboard despite this exact model number being listed in the manual.
Overall Review: I have used a similiar model DIMM from Kingston in the same board with no problems. Maybe I just got a bad DIMM. Regardless I sent it back for a refund.
Pros: I have owned this drive since 2007. I have moved it around between several different computers. It has been used as a primary OS drive, a storage drive, and as part of a raid array, and thoughout all of it's different uses with different file systems it continues to work. I don't normally write reviews, and like the last guy that posted here I doubt anyone will read this because the product is so old, but I thought I'd post anyway. This drive deserves the accolades.
Cons: I suppose if I have to find a con it would be that the drive consumes 8.75 Watts at idle, but realistically for a 7200 rpm drive manufactured 6 years ago that is not really a conn. I only list it because it the most power hungry of the 8 drives that I own today.

Pros: This has got to be the best fan control / temp monitor I've ever used. It does exactly what I need, and nothing I don't. As an added bonus it looks absolutely amazing in my aluminum Lian Li case.
Cons: The yellow tape provided to hold down the temperature probes isn't that great. It worked out ok for the probes I attached to the top of my hard drives, but for my video card and CPU heat sinks I had to use something else.
Overall Review: I've seen fancier (ugly) units for double the money, but honestly this unit is really all you need. It has a nice plain yet beautiful look, and the digital display is very classy.
