Sketchy power supply.
Pros: Quiet fan
Cons: The power supply worked fine for about two weeks, then I mailed in the rebate paperwork. Wouldn't you know it, the unit failed to work the day after mailing the rebate. I pulled from the PC to test in another, still no luck. I put it back and crossed my fingers, it powered on. Worked fine for a few more days, and now it died again while using the PC. Now I find myself stuck in RMA limbo with $850 in unusable parts on my desk.
Overall Review: The cable lengths and plug configurations are not ideal.
Pros: Fast when it worked.
Cons: Stopped working after about 3 weeks...
Overall Review: I purchased my drive on 5/31 as part of a rebate promotion that was running. Seemed too good to pass up. Should have passed... Other people online warned about the drive as well. Drive worked fine for about 2 weeks, then suddenly the BIOS could not see it anymore after a reboot. After changing SATA cable and resetting the BIOS a few times it started working again. I used it for a few more days and after another reboot it can't be detected again. So far BIOS resets and cable changes have not had any effect. Not sure if I want to bother with manufacturer replacement since I suspect I will just get another bad drive based on other comments and reviews online.
Pros: Sounded pretty good for my small TV room.
Cons: The subwoofer died after about a month of use. I could sometimes get it to work if I fidgeted with the speaker plug input, but eventually it quit working completely. No visible damage to the circuit board when I took it apart. Not sure it is worth trying to fix on my own, seems a waste to just throw it in the trash.
