Pros: This memory works perfectly in my 24" iMac
Cons: NONE so far
Overall Review: Much Cheaper than Apple's memory and it works great! Speed increase was very noticable.
Pros: Super fast awesome drives - But BUYER BEWARE this model DOES NOT fit into the Mac Pro hard drive bay slots because of the heat sink/SATA Connector location .
The WD3000HLFS version fits fine in the Mac Pro - NOT these!
Cons: BUYER BEWARE these DO NOT fit into the Mac Pro hard drive bay slots because of the heat sink/SATA Connector location. It does not line up to the SATA connectors on the Back plane.
The WD3000HLFS version fits fine in the Mac Pro and is a HUGE improvement over a 7200RPM drive - but NOT these!
Overall Review: I had a WD3000HLFS installed and it was working unbelievably sweet, so I bought 2 of these to set up RAID 0 on my Mac Pro and they will not fit due to the thickness of the Heatsink near the SATA Connector.
I have no idea why WD would change their connector location - all I can say is BAD MOVE WD!!!
Pros: AWESOME Hard drive. I have installed this into my Mac Pro 2.8GHz 8-Core and Here are the actual results: Boot time went from 1.09 Min to 29.7 Sec.
PhotoShopCS4 went from 13.7 Sec to 5.2Sec.
Dreamweaver went from 16.3 Sec to 8.2 Sec.
I was worried about noise as well and this drive is quieter than the 750GB Western Digital SATA2 drive it replaced.
Cons: None so far!
Overall Review: I was very skeptical about buying this hard drive due to the mixed reviews, but I am EXTREMELY HAPPY that I got it. I was going to go with an SSD Drive, but they are still way too expensive. This is an awesome improvement and will hold me over until the prices on the SSDs come down.
Mac Pro 2.8GHz 8-Core - 2 nVidia 8800GT Cards - 8GB RAM.
Pros: Very bright crisp clean picture. Extremely acurate color reproduction. No bad pixels. Picture-in-Picture.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Fantastic monitors. I bought two of these and connected them to my 8-core Mac Pro with nVidia 8800GT Video card(s) and I could be happier. They are absolutely awesome! I was very skeptical buying a monitor online, but these arrived in perfect condition!
